"To the Loyal Members of Redskins Nation," the email reads. "A few months back, I wrote to you about our continuing efforts to make the Redskins game day experience the best in all of sports. Getting better on the field and providing our fans an outstanding day at the stadium has been and will continue to be our goal."
Williams is tough and able to play through pain; we witnessed that last season. But this ankle injury, which he suffered in the regular season finale and aggravated in Pro Bowl practice a few weeks later, was still sore enough six months later to keep him out of veteran minicamp. Six months. That's an awfully long time to be dealing with a sprain, and you can bet it's something everyone will be watching closely in the opening days of camp.
DeAngelo Hall—I've noted a few times lately that his $4 million salary puts him in danger of being faced with the choice of being cut or taking a reduction in pay. His job security is that if he left the No. 4 corner would be Tevin Mitchel, a very raw rookie.
John Keim, Washington Redskins: It's hard to repeat as division champions. I would pick the Eagles -- they're going to be a boom or bust team. I have an odd confidence in Chip Kelly and what he's doing, though I have doubts about anyone who thinks scheme trumps talent. However, my real concern with the Eagles is quarterback Sam Bradford and his inability to stay healthy.
John Keim, Washington Redskins: As of now, it's hard to go against Tony Romo. Odell Beckham could have a big season, and so could DeMarco Murray in Philadelphia (though it will be tough to duplicate his 2014 success). But Romo continues to get better; he's playing behind a terrific line and with one of the NFL's top receivers in Dez Bryant. As long as Romo stays healthy -- as long as the back holds out -- he'll be the man. Romo has been fantastic in recent seasons: In the past four years, he's thrown a combined 124 touchdown passes to 48 interceptions. And he's coming off arguably his best season (34 touchdowns, nine interceptions). As long as that line remains intact, Romo will be the guy to beat in this race.
