Asked if he had thought about playing the position in the NFL, he said he’s sticking with cornerback for now. "I want to play corner," he said. "That’s what I think I am. I’ve got attributes to play safety, but I feel like I can be a good corner in this league."

"If you’re going to think about stopping Dez, that’s when there’s frustration," he said. "You worry about getting down the game plan, your technique, playing the team instead of Dez." At 5-11, 197, Breeland is a bigger corner who is not afraid of mixing it up. That will help him when he lines up against Bryant. "He’s a good receiver, he’s got great hands, he has great ball skills," said Breeland. "So you’ve just got to be patient with him, physical with him and he’ll be physical with you."

Hatcher is trying to become more of a leader in Washington. Though Hatcher said his new teammates accepted him as if he’s been here his whole career, he’s trying to exert more influence on changing the culture in Washington. Typically, wins do the trick. Until then, Hatcher is trying to do his part. "It’s slowly but surely coming in," Hatcher said. "I’m just being the guy that I have always been, the leader that they expect me to be. Some things you’re not going to like that I say, but I am here to be that leader and that voice. The team is going in the right direction." And, yes, he’s anxious to sack his former teammate, Tony Romo -- something Hatcher wasn’t allowed to do in practice for the Cowboys. "It’s exciting for every quarterback, man," he said. "I enjoy rushing the passer, man. That is what I do. I love it, so it just happens to be my old teammate. It’s going to be great. I don’t like quarterbacks, so every quarterback, all quarterbacks, are going to get rushed the same by me."
The Redskins led the NFL in rushing in 2012 and ranked fifth last year, even in the midst of a 3-13 season. Entering Monday night's game in Dallas, though, the Redskins rank 21st in rushing yards per game this season and are tied for 16th in yards per carry.
