Redskins Holding Out Until ‘Last Minute’ to Sign Free Agents " CBS DC
"Next week is Free Agency and the guy still can’t run full speed, can’t do any workouts or anything like that to show off for teams," Mike Jones told 106.7 The Fan’s Lavar and Dukes Tuesday. "I think that’s why for [the Redskins], they feel like ‘Ok, we’re in a good situation here. We know what we’ve got.’ And everyone else is probably sitting back unsure if they want to take a risk on a guy like this."

Offseason questions: Should the Redskins re-sign Tyler Polumbus?
Tyler Polumbus started 16 out of 17 games in 2012 after taking over in training camp for Jammal Brown, whose problematic hip prevented him from playing. But now Polumbus is set to become a free agent and the Redskins must decide whether to re-sign him or let him walk.

Shanahan: 'You'd Love To Have Davis Back'
"You'd love to see Fred back," Mike Shanahan recently told Redskins.comTV. "Any time you have an Achilles [injury] it’s going to set you back.

Redskins must consider future productivity, dead money in deciding veterans' fates, Bill Polian says - Washington Times
The period we’re in right now is one where every club is faced with the question: How much do I play a player based upon, A, his productivity; B, his availability; C, his longevity; and, D, his contribution to the overall cap situation. So whenever you have red flags like injury, like potential suspension or character issues, like age, like size – and age, injury and, to a lesser degree size, enter into the dead money issue – you have very, very tough decisions to make.
