“[Callahan] had a chance to see Ross up close and personal and see him work, and get his hand on him and get him out, bring him into the meeting room and talk ball with him,” Smith said on “Redskins Nation” on April 30. “He was blown away his intelligence and the character of the player, and obviously he’s a good player; that matters, too.”
“Rehab is going great,” Love told reporters following rookie minicamp May 11. “Every day, I feel like I’m getting better, being able to do more and more things.

Regardless of who starts the year, the real question is do the Redskins need both Keenum and McCoy?
