Brian Orakpo: My Sacks will come | ESPN Redskins Blog

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said in the spring that he wanted to base a long-term deal off what Orakpo did this season. He said they thought Orakpo would have more than half a sack through four games. Gruden also said Orakpo did not have a lot of good pass-rush situations against Houston (scheme) or the Giants (game situation). Still, more is desired.

That's a good thing because fellow tight end Jordan Reed remained limited in practice and the Redskins still don't have a great deal of optimism that he'll return for Monday's game against Seattle. Reed is trying to recover from a hamstring injury suffered in the season opener against Houston.

Well, Trent Williams' teammates think he is a good leader, so that's good enough for me. Williams has matured as a player more than I thought he might when he first came to the Redskins. He works hard; reports in good shape and plays hurt. I will say, I was surprised when they first named him a captain. He does not seem like that sort of guy who would be in that role. Very laid back. But when you see the fire he plays with and you hear what he has gone through to play some seasons, in terms of injuries, then I can understand why players have voted him as a captain. I also don't see a lot of other candidates offensively.
