REDSKINS’ 53-MAN ROSTER
No. Name Ht. Wt. Age College
17 Jason Campbell 6-5 230 27 Auburn
15 Todd Collins 6-4 223 37 Michigan
Analysis: Turns out the No. 3 quarterback competition was much ado about nothing. Colt Brennan (hip) was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list, and Chase Daniel was released and expected to sign with the practice squad Sunday. Only a disaster - Campbell and Collins going down in the same game - would make this decision look bad. It also erases hopes by the Cult of Colt that he replaces Campbell during the year.
24 Marcus Mason 5-9 215 25 Youngstown St.
26 Clinton Portis 5-11 221 28 Miami (Fla.)
31 Rock Cartwright 5-8 213 29 Kansas St.
45 Mike Sellers 6-3 273 34 Walla Walla CC
46 Ladell Betts 5-11 224 29 Iowa
Analysis: The Redskins were impressed enough by Mason that they departed from the normal four tailbacks/fullbacks. It will be interesting to see how coach Jim Zorn and offensive coordinator Sherman Smith find a role for Mason. Portis is the workhorse, and Betts will get time. Where Mason could be effective is as a bulldozer running behind Sellers in short-yardage situations, which have plagued the Redskins for years.
47 Chris Cooley 6-3 250 27 Utah St.View Entire Story
