Super Bowl bound Sean McVay got away, but tough to fault the Redskins | ESPN

McVay has been appreciative of the opportunity, and freedom, that Gruden gave him. And even if the Redskins had wanted McVay to take over, getting his first head-coaching job in that kind of manner would have made any coach wonder about his job security.

Redskins don’t have a great history with the 15th pick in the draft | NBC Sports

Haynesworth signed a seven-year, $100 million contract with the Redskins in 2009 with $41 million guaranteed.

Senior Bowl interview with WR Andy Isabella | Fanspeak.com

It was an awesome experience just going up against teams like that it’s a whole different feel. The game is played faster.

I think that was one of my biggest regrets at UMass, that I couldn’t get the team to come together and win. But I love the feel of playing in a big game.
