SEEN AND HEARD AT REDSKIN PARK

Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan took in practice, along with his 10-year-old son Jaxson and assistant Mike O’Koren. A svelte-looking Jordan chatted with Redskins front-office boss Vinny Cerrato during practice and quarterback Jason Campbell after the morning session. Jaxson had the chance to help out by putting balls into the JUGS machine for punters Derrick Frost and Durant Brooks to hold on simulated field goal and extra point snaps.

QUOTABLE

“I have my own soap opera. I don’t watch any of that stuff. Did he get traded? Really? The Jets? The Dolphins will see him twice a year now, huh? And we’ll see him next week. Wow. It will be a real circus. Certain guys carry that circus with them and Brett is one of those guys. Not in a bad way. He just has that aura about him.”

LONG SHOT OF THE DAY

S JUSTIN HAMILTON, 6-3, 217, VIRGINIA TECH

Hamilton spent his first four years in Blacksburg, Va., as a running back and wide receiver, but he moved to safety as a fifth-year senior. The Cleveland Browns selected him in the seventh round of the 2006 draft, and he had 15 tackles as a rookie. The team cut him Sept. 1, 2007, and he didn’t find another team. He would have to outplay either Vernon Fox or one of the two draft picks (Kareem Moore and Chris Horton) to have a chance.
