Redskins Claim LB Reuben Foster off waivers

Redskins Claim LB Reuben Foster off waivers

The Washington Redskins have claimed former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster off waivers on Tuesday, just days after he was released following an arrest over the past weekend. Foster was arrested last weekend in Tampa Bay, Florida on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence battery and released by the 49ers hours later. Foster’s alleged victim told police that the NFL player slapped her phone out of her hand and then slapped the right side of…

Redskins sign Mark Sanchez

Redskins sign Mark Sanchez

The Washington Redskins signed journeyman QB Mark Sanchez to back up Colt McCoy, the former number two who became the starter after Alex Smith was lost for the season with a broken fibula and broken tibia. Sanchez was presumably chosen over other uninspiring candidates because of his ties to various members of the Redskins offensive coaching staff. Offensive Coordinator Matt Cavanaugh was the Jets QB coach from 2009-2012 when Sanchez was the starting QB of…

Redskins Goats & Greats: Game 10

Redskins Goats & Greats: Game 10

GOATS ALEX SMITH — I hate do kick a guy when he’s down, but Alex Smith struggled mightily yesterday before the gruesome injury that ended his 2018 season. He completed a mere 12 of 27 passes for 135 yards and two interceptions. At times, Smith seemed to move the team well, but the pick-6 thrown in Houston’s end was by far the biggest play of the game (as far as determining the outcome) and Smith’s…

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…

Projecting the Redskins 53-man Roster: Defense

Projecting the Redskins 53-man Roster: Defense

After training camp and two preseason games, we have enough data to make some flat assertions and some semi-educated guesses about who will make Washington’s final 53-man roster for opening day in September. As always, injuries can and alter this list. DEFENSIVE LINE (6) Starters: Jonathan Allen, Da’Ron Payne, Matt Ioannidis Backups: Anthony Lanier, Tim Settle, Ziggy Hood Analysis: It wouldn’t be unusual for the Skins to keep seven defensive linemen and that seventh would…

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…

How the Redskins Draft Will Impact their Roster

How the Redskins Draft Will Impact their Roster

Now that the 2018 NFL Draft is over, it’s time to consider how the players selected will affect the roster that finally takes the field for real games in early September. For a quick refresher on who the Skins added in the Draft, see THIS and THIS. QUARTERBCK (3) Alex Smith, Colt McCoy, Kevin Hogan No quarterbacks taken, which is whatI expected. I think the Skins like Kevin Hogan, whom they recently acquired in a…

Redskins Release DL Terrell McClain, A.J. Francis

Redskins Release DL Terrell McClain, A.J. Francis

The Washington Redskins have released DL Terrell McClain, who played only one sub-par year in Washington. I panned the signing at the time, writing that the former Dallas Cowboy was a mediocre player who was given far too much money, four years and $21 million. The writing was on the wall after McClain’s poor 2017 season, when the team renegotiated his contract to remove his guaranteed base salary for 2018. McClain will count $3.75 million against…
