Daily Slop: Belichick Pitched Idea of Redskins-Patriots Practices to Gruden & Co; Redskins to Work out Quentin Groves

A look at the top Redskins stories around the web


Belichick pitched idea of Redskins-Patriots practices to Gruden & Co.
"It’s a great change," Gruden explained on Wednesday. "You get into practice and you’re going through the one-a-days, you’re going through the walk-throughs in the afternoon and you do that about nine or 10 times and you’re like, ‘Gah.’ This is a great way to change it up a little bit and go against someone else and see where you are with your personnel – see their ones against your ones, twos against their twos, threes against their threes and it might juggle the depth chart a little bit after that."

"[Jay] puts his spin on things like we all do," Jon said. "No two people are alike. This is a great opportunity for him. I like that he's working as hard as he can. At the end of the day, everybody gets what he deserves."

2nd year players to watch for the Redskins |

After a tumultuous 2013 season, the Washington Redskins finally fired HC Mike Shanahan and pretty much cleaned house and let Bruce Allen take over and run the show as GM. With that firing came the hiring of Jay Gruden to lead the Redskins back to the Playoffs and be another title threat. After riding the 2012 season on the back of RG3 and his outstanding rookie season, the Redskins drafted many players in the 2013 draft class who were seen as high upside guys who maybe wouldn't be exactly the top end guys early on, but had the potential to develop. With the 2014 draft class mirroring that same natural talent and ability, the 2013 class is now going to be relied upon to take that next step and be a leader for the Redskins team moving forward. Below I'll take a look at three guys who I think can make that next leap for the Redskins in 2014
