Adrian Peterson Wins Player of the Week Award

Adrian Peterson Wins Player of the Week Award

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week minutes ago. Peterson continues to showcase the ageless skills that have made him one of the steals of this year’s afterthought free-agent market. His spectacular 64-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter sealed the Redskins‘ 20-13 victory over the New York Giants. The 33-year-old churned out 149 yards on 26 carries and, in the process, passed Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett for…

Redskins Trade for DB Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix

Redskins Trade for DB Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix

The Washington Redskins bolstered their injury-plagued secondary by adding safety Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix in a trade that sent a fourth round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft back to the Green Bay Packers. Clinton-Dix, 25, brings veteran leadership and superb athleticism to the Washington defensive backfield that is currently without CB Quinton Dunbar (nerve damage) and rookie 4th round pick Troy Apke.

Redskins Stock Report: Preseason Edition

Redskins Stock Report: Preseason Edition

BLUE CHIP STOCK OF THE WEEK The young Redskins defensive line, particularly Alabama teammates Jonathan Allen and Da’Ron Payne, demonstrated why the team invested so heavily in the position the last two years. Payne and Allen repeatedly stuffed the Jets running attack during their two defensive series on the field last Thursday. Payne came up with a fantastic sack on the third play from scrimmage, when he showed his hands early and blew past former…
