Redskins Rookie Mini-Camp Begins Today

New, comments

The rooks are here!

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins rookie mini-camp begins today, and will run through the weekend.  65 players will be in attendance, including the team's 10 draft picks, 13 UDFAs that were signed after the draft, and several players from last year's practice squad. One notable name that is not listed is QB Connor Halliday who was signed as an UDFA, and has reportedly been working out at Redskins Park for the past two weeks.  There are two other QBs listed, Huston Mason(UGA), and Anthony Neyer(USC).  Former Alabama QB Blake Sims will also be at the camp, but will be tried out at a variety of positions including RB, WR, and KR. Today's session will be closed to the media, but tomorrow's practice will have media access.

[UPDATE: 11:15 am 5/15/15] QB Connor Halliday is no longer on the Redskins roster.

Twenty-three teams held their rookie minicamp last weekend. McCloughan, however, chose to hold the Redskins' camp a week later for strategic reasons.

"Guys [the first group of teams] had out on a tryout basis that we liked, and they wanted to go there first—you'll see, there will be two or three guys that we'll bring in that were somewhere else last week," he said.

"I'm hoping there's tryout guys that prove to us that the college free agent guys we signed, that they're better than them," he said. "Again, I'm walking into a clean slate, and I want to see guys coming here and understanding it's not too big for them and produce. That's absolutely what it's all about."
