Former Redskins tackle Joe Jacoby | ESPN Redskins Blog

Jacoby made that commitment and became a player once voted to the all-decade team in the 1980s and starting for four Super Bowl teams, including three champions. Warren recalled how precise Jacoby was when he needed to pull, a key part of what the Redskins did running the ball, and how little help he needed. Before Warren would go out for a pass, he was often instructed to chip the pass rusher.

Redskins OL Stanfel gets into the HOF | CSN Redskins Blog

His career was short by modern standards but impressive. In seven seasons in the league, the first four with the Lions before going to Washington, he made the Pro Bowl five times and was a first-team All-Pro five times. Stanfel was a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame' All-1950's team. He retired after the 1958 season at the age of 31 to pursue a career in coaching.

Broncos Jackson among the free agents that might interest the Redskins | CSN Redskins Blog

Defensive end Malik Jackson plays a position that is very much a need for the Redskins. This year he had 5.5 sacks, 11 QB hits, and 57 hurries. Jackson, a fifth-round draft pick of the Broncos in 2012, was particularly spectacular in the AFC title game, knocking Tom Brady down three times and harassing him at other times. His age—he turned 26 last month—fits the McCloughan free agent profile but he will be highly sought after and that may drive his price up out of the Redskins' range.

But the Redskins were buying free agents before 1993. CB Pat Fischer, DT Dave Butz, and LB Wilbur Marshall were all signed after their contracts expired with their old teams. The rules at the time required draft pick compensation for such signings. John Riggins was signed in 1976 when a one-year window allowed for unrestricted free agency to take place. A "gentlemen's agreement" was in place that discouraged signing free agents (it would be called "collusion" today). But George Allen was having no part of that and signed several players, including Riggins.

What do the Redskins need to do to build a Super Bowl team | CSN Redskins Blog

El-Bashir: The Redskins laid a solid foundation in the second half of 2015, no doubt. They learned how to practice with focus and intensity. They learned how to win on the road. They also figured out what it takes to string together a few wins. As a result, Jay Gruden and Co. won five of their final six games en route to claiming the NFC East title.
