Andre Roberts must reassess role after DeSean Jackson signing | Comcast SportsNet Washington
"That’s how the league is, that’s how the league works," Roberts told ESPN 980’s Inside the Locker Room on Thursday. "Going into my situation, I wanted to be the No. 2 receiver. But I still don’t how it’s going to work out. Obviously, when you look at how much money is being made each guy, you’d think that’s going to be [the] No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3."

Williams not counting on new weapons to ease pressure on Redskins O-line
"I would imagine that with guys like DeSean Jackson and [holdover] Aldrick Robinson and Andre Roberts, who can really blow the top off [the defense], we probably would run deeper routes, which would mean we probably would have to hold up a little longer," Williams said. "But those guys are fast, and that’s what we get paid to do. We have no problem with that. But I don’t know if it lessens the pressure at all."

Cofield: Signing former NFC East rivals Hatcher, Jackson "a double-whammy"
"I definitely think it matters," Cofield said. "You leaving a team – I mean, it’s a lot of parity in the league now, so it’s not like you’ve got one guys leaving a team and they give you the entire game plan and you can beat them for years to come. Some of our guys go to other teams, and it’s not like we’re going to throw in the towel. But you have to really capitalize on it, especially with those position groups. It really matters. I think I was able to provide a lot of insight on my former teammates, my former D-line and former offensive linemen I played against every week. Bowen was the same way, and I think Hatcher will bring that, too. DeSean will bring that to our receiving group and bring information about the Philadelphia DBs and their offense. So there is a bit more that goes into it."

Cofield: Accountability, commitment will help fill Fletcher’s void
"I really believe in personal accountability," Cofield said on Monday. "I think leading by example is one of the biggest things that you can do. I think that people are making a big deal about us losing London because they see him giving impassioned speeches on Sunday. But I think the biggest thing that London did was really just the way he prepared and the efficiency he brought to work every day. His age, with his experience, you have no reason not to respect that, and that’s why he was such a great leader."

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell at Augusta in new green jacket, jokes ensue | Shutdown Corner - Yahoo Sports
From Yahoo Sports: NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is a rich man (check that ... a very, very rich man) and as powerful as it gets, so it shouldn't be too surprising that Goodell is apparently a new member at Augusta National. Goodell showed up for the Masters wearing a green members jacket. You're not allowed to just wear that, you have to be a member of the club or a former Masters winner, and unless Goodell beat Larry Mize in a playoff way back when and we just don't recall it, it must mean he's a member. Yahoo's Dan Wetzel tried speaking to Goodell in Augusta but he declined interview requests.
