Redskins email report: Catching up with Chris Samuels | WashingtonExaminer.com
Former Redskins offensive tackle Chris Samuels was one of the best draft picks in the Dan Snyder era, a third overall pick who went on to make six Pro Bowls. Certainly the Pro Bowl often is about popularity, but there’s little doubt Samuels had a solid career from 2000-2009. So it was fun catching up with him last month for a recent story on transitioning from the NFL to the real world.
"The only advice I give him is just to have fun, man," Orakpo said. "Go out there play the game that comes from the plan — act like you’re back at Baylor. Just go out there, play with a chip on your shoulder, have fun out there, don’t worry about the pressure, and everything will come into play."

I was curious to see how the 2012 Washington Redskins roster stood up against the roster from 15 years ago, the Norv Turner coached 1997 team. Norv’s 1997 team went 8-7-1 and finished 2nd in the NFC East, a record that many would call a success for 2012. The NFC East is more competitive this year but 8 wins would have to be an improvement. In 1997, Norv had both Mike Nolan and Mike Martz on his coaching staff also.

"It’s not up to (Shanahan), it’s not up to me," the rookie Griffin III said. "It’s up to that guy. (Shanahan) wasn’t subbing Terrell Davis in and out; Terrell Davis wasn’t a first-round draft pick; Terrell Davis showed him that, ‘Hey, I can be your guy.’ And I think that’s the challenge when it comes to Helu, Royster, Tim Hightower, Tristan Davis — all these guys that are in that backfield, it is up to them to decide who’s going to be the guy."

As I continue my rigorous pre-training camp reading regimen (which really is not all that rigorous), I’ll keep bringing you interesting items as I come across them.
