Redskins Injury Update: Leonard Hankerson likely to open the season as a reserve

The Washington Redskins added wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts this offseason, which pushed Leonard Hankerson down the depth chart even if he was 100 percent healthy. But a left knee injury (torn anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments) that ended his 2013 season put the fourth-year receiver even more behind the eight-ball entering the season.Hankerson may...

Breaking down the Washington Redskins first depth chart of the year

The Redskins released the first official depth chart of the Jay Gruden era, and one thing to note is that Jason Hatcher and Leonard Hankerson are absent from it, implying that the deck will be shuffled, and reshuffled again, down to the last grueling minutes of the pre-season. When all is said and done, the lion’s share of roster spots might go to the offense, giving Coach Gruden...

Washington Redskins’ Andre Roberts: “We All Want” 1,00-yard Seasons

Andre Roberts joined the Washington Redskins with hopes of being the team’s No. 2 receiver, but all hopes of that were crushed when the team signed DeSean Jackson later in the offseason. Regardless, Roberts is beginning to accept the fact that he can still put up really solid numbers as the team’s No. 3 receiver, and that the Redskins could have a potent passing attack led by...

Camp Review: Reviewing the first few days of Washington Redskins training camp

First let’s start with the guy everyone wants to know about, quarterback Robert Griffin III. Griffin got off to a rough start on the first day of practice, mainly due to rain and sloppy conditions, which isn’t really an excuse because football games are sometime played in less than ideal circumstances. But it was only day one of camp, so no need to panic and make a big deal out...

Camp Preview: The Washington Redskins have built a deadly receiving corps

Mark my words, by the end of this season, the Redskins receiving corps will be universally considered one of the top two or three in the league. Everyone wants to talk about DeSean Jackson—and we will—but we all forget about Pierre Garcon, who had an absolutely outstanding season last year. He went from a guy who normally topped out at around 50 to 60 catches a year, to a guy...

Can the Redskins win with an “average” offense? Part III: 3 Wide Receivers

For the first time in 10 or 20 years, the Redskins have a rising corps of receivers attuned to 21st Century football.

The Redskins were prudent acquisition WR Andre Roberts. Prudent, but unexciting. Then Washington...

TOP-5: The Washington Redskins best offseason acquisitions

Last year was pretty much a totally disaster, but it also feels like everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong. Because of that, if things just start falling the Redskins way, I think there should be plenty of room for optimism. Robert Griffin III is healthy again, Mike Shanahan is gone – a good coach in theory, but he has an ego the size of Fed Ex Field – and there...

Andre Roberts questions his decision to join the Washington Redskins

When Andre Roberts signed with the Washington Redskins, he envisioned himself as the No. 2 receiver in a pass-first offense. Unfortunately, that was quickly changed once DeSean Jackson entered the picture. Now, it is apparent that Jackson and Pierre Garçon will be the headlining acts, relegating Roberts to a much-reduced roll. “Well, I envisioned one thing and then we singed DeSean...
