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...

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...

The best Washington Redskins WR no one is talking about

When the Washington Redskins signed free agent WR Andre Roberts, they did so with very little fanfare. Picked in the third round by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2010 NFL Draft, Roberts has never had more than 64 catches in a season. Considering what round he was selected, and given his productivity–or lack thereof–there may seem to be a reason why many don’t expect much from...

Leonard Hankerson not expected to be healthy until around training camp

Mike Jones of the Washington Post says wide receiver Leonard Hankerson likely won’t be healthy until around training camp.

Andre Roberts to return kicks for the Redskins?

John Keim of believes Andre Roberts could return kicks and punts for Washington in 2014. While DeSean Jackson can help them on punt returns, that’s not a role you want him to do more than occasionally. They need him making plays at receiver more than anything and at his size, you want to limit the wear and tear on his body. Andre Roberts could potentially fill both roles...
