Redskins 2014: Get ready for The Year of the Screen

This story contributed by Scott Hirsch. Did you hear that Brandon Meriweather is retiring after his first full year of only clean tackles? His head isn’t into it anymore.

Redskins QB Robert Griffin is ready for zone-read option plays, just not too many

During a portion of the 11-on-11 action in Wednesday’s practice for the Washington Redskins, 2012 Robert Griffin III made an appearance. The quarterback took the snap and appeared to execute a handoff but called his own number instead. He then darted through an opening along the line. It looked very much like his 76-yard touchdown run against the Minnesota Vikings two years ago...

Camp Preview: Who’s replacing London Fletcher?

For the linebackers, this training camp will be about one thing: replacing London Fletcher Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrigan and Perry Riley are all pretty much locked into their positions, barring injury, but the Redskins are set for a pretty serious competition for Fletcher’s old spot at middle linebacker.

Who will step up for the Washington Redskins at linebacker?

Over the past seven seasons we’ve enjoyed the luxury of knowing there was an ironman at the heart of the Redskins defense. From the end of the Joe Gibbs era, through Jim Zorn’s two year mantra of “staying medium” and onto Mike Shanahan’s changes in the defensive alignment, it was either London Fletcher or “London Fletcher & Co.” holding down the middle of the field...

First thoughts on the Redskins’ upcoming draft; it’s not that important to 2014 season

This story contributed by Scott Hirsch Last year’s draft was far more important for the success of this season than this year’s draft will be (good news – it was a good one minus Jamison).
