Just got released later Redskin faithful it's been real!!
I'm motivated outta the ass right now I'm gonna bust my ass and when/if I ever come back on the other sideline beware!!!
A LB released does this mean a potential signing or players coming off of the PUP list
Key additions: Barry Cofield, Santana Moss, Josh Wilson, Stephen Bowen, Chris Chester, Jammal Brown (re-signed), Jabar Gaffney, Tim Hightower, Donte' Stallworth, Kellen Clemens
Key losses: Albert Haynesworth, Donovan McNabb, Carlos Rogers, Casey Rabach, Maake Kemoeatu, Phillip Daniels, Jeremy Jarmon, Vonnie Holliday
Analysis: I wrote on Twitter that if I were in charge of rebuilding the Redskins, I would have attacked the defense and put a few bandages on the offense -- making that next year's project and allowing coach Mike Shanahan to see what he could get from below-average offensive personnel. That is exactly what Washington did. Rebuilding this team is a huge project, and it couldn't all be done in one offseason.
Defensively, a key for the Redskins with the Cofield signing is Anthony Bryant, the big body needed for early downs at nose tackle who was quite impressive to finish the 2010 season. If that progression continues, Cofield can be used in many effective ways. If not, I don't expect him to be able to handle the pounding on the nose, which really isn't what he is equipped for.
Bowen is young and was extremely impressive for the Cowboys in limited snaps. Wilson isn't a well-known corner, but he excelled in Baltimore last season. It also can't be overlooked that Washington signed O.J. Atogwe before the lockout began. Atogwe is a terrific complement to LaRon Landry and should allow the Redskins' strong safety to really roam and make even more plays going forward. This secondary is much-improved.
Although I commend what Washington did on defense, I still don't fully understand why it needed to add so many new running backs and wide receivers with hopes that just a few of them step up. Outside of bringing back Moss, the wideouts and running backs are a jumbled mess. That situation needs to be sorted out.
Albert Haynesworth walked in today: he looked like Ted Washington. He looked bigger this year than he did a year ago.
Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter Filed to ESPN: Washington traded DT Albert Haynesworth to the New England Patriots for a fifth-round pick in 2013.
Their fans were all cheering and what not," Cofield said. "That shows you the state of their team, that they have to cheer about us failing. That's when you have no success; those are the kind of things that excite you."
"NFL | Jim Irsay says deal must be in place by July
Mon, 23 May 2011 07:23:07 -0700
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay believes it would be tough to have a normal preseason and start to the regular season if a new collective bargaining agreement is not hammered out by early July. "There's a window where we can get something done, but we really need to get something done by the Fourth of July or thereabouts so we can get in and have training camp and preseason and get ready that way," Irsay said. "There has to be some real urgency to get this thing resolved and really have a full season with a training camp and preseason games."
"We prepared for various options and will be able to be as aggressive as any team in the league based on what the rules are." - Bruce Allen
