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…

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…

The Redskins were counting on Taylor as their starting nose tackle in 2017, but he tore his left quadriceps in a preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals, ending his season. Taylor was a first round pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2011, but he has not played in an NFL game since 2014,…
