ESPN.com has confirmed through league sources that McCardell is in active negotiations with the Washington Redskins, who chose him in the 12th round of the 1991 draft. Released by the San Diego Chargers earlier this spring, McCardell is also discussing a contract with the Houston Texans, where he visited club officials and coaches three weeks ago.
I am concerned with this from the above article: "...the Redskins became involved with McCardell in recent days..." Why? Are the coaches concerned with our receiving corp? I presumed above that he's battling for that 5th spot, but maybe I'm wrong. Does this not bode well for James Thrash?
