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.
