SEEN AND HEARD AT REDSKIN PARK

It was Chris Samuels‘ 31st birthday, and his media session was an event. First, Clinton Portis tossed water on him. Then the other offensive linemen brought out a cake with a baby seal on it (they call him Seal because they think he looks like the singer). After he blew out the candles and answered some more questions, Randy Thomas came back out and smashed the cake into the right side of Samuels’ face.

QUOTABLE

“I don’t know. I don’t worry about that. When the trainers give him to me, it is like Christmas, You get your toy, [say] ‘Thank you,’ and go play with it.”

LONG SHOT OF THE DAY

DE KEVIN HUNTLEY, 6-7 270, KANSAS STATE

Huntley has more NFL experience than some of the other recent long shots. The Archbishop Carroll graduate played in six games for the Raiders in 2006 and five for the Falcons last season. Still, the Redskins have four established defensive ends (Jason Taylor, Andre Carter, Demetric Evans and Erasmus James) plus Chris Wilson and seventh-round pick Rob Jackson with whom Huntley will compete.
