Redskins take away things with Haslett’s defense
ASHBURN, VA. (AP) - It’s been a bit of a novelty watching the Washington Redskins‘ defense in preseason. The players are getting their hands on the ball _ and they’re actually holding on to it.
The Redskins have forced eight turnovers in three preseason games. That’s a promising trend for a team that finished last in takeaways last season.
Players attribute the turnabout to the 3-4 defense run by new defensive coordinator Jim Haslett.
Cornerback DeAngelo Hall notes the team hasn’t run the full defense yet. He figures it’ll be exciting to see what happens once the coaches start game-planning for opponents in the regular season.
