Twitter Tuesday: The positives and negatives of Washington Redskins camp

While expectations are high for the Redskins this year, training camp hasn’t been all sunflowers and daisies. This is still a young team with a first time head coach. There are going to be some bumps in the road. At the same time, there have been a lot of positives to come out of Richmond, Virginia over the last week. Here are some of the reactions, both good and bad, from those...

Fan is Transferring 22 Autographs on his Skin from Redskins Starters into Tattoos

What happens when illogical sports fandom is taken too far? You strive to receive 22 signature tattoos from every Washington Redskins starter. That is exactly what 41-year-old Charlie White is attempting during the team’s training camp. The Skins superfan is asking each starter to sign his arm, which then is transferred into permanent tattoo ink. “I want all 22 starters,” White...

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...

The Washington Redskins should recruit London Fletcher for one last hurrah

The Redskins have spent the first week of free agency shoring up the defensive side of the ball in an effort to support their offensive counterparts in a division that has not seen a team repeat as back to back NFC East Champions since the Eagles won four division titles in a row from 2001-2004. The Redskins have made some substantial upgrades on the defensive line, at cornerback...

Washington Redskins re-sign MLB Perry Riley

Perry Riley, a 2010 4th round pick, has been starting for the Redskins at middle linebacker for about 2 ½ years, since the middle of the 2011 season. He was about an average starter in both 2011 and 2012, for the first 1 ½ year and a half of his career, but he struggled mightily in his contract year last year, grading out as Pro Football Focus’ 46th ranked middle linebacker out...

Redskins Free Agency Has Been … Good?

There have been plenty of Hot Takes about the Skins’ free agency activity, so let’s add another to the pile: It’s actually been pretty successful, all things considered. Here are five reasons why: 1.

Similar to my feelings last week on Brian Orakpo, the Washington Redskins need to ensure that they sign Perry Riley. Riley played aside now retired London Fletcher at inside linebacker, so losing Riley to free-agency would be a huge blow to Redskins defense.
