Latest Darryl Tapp Items
Capsules of the 16 NFC teams entering NFL free agency, which begins Tuesday:
If the Redskins don't re-sign Brian Orakpo, should they pursue Pittsburgh's Jason Worilds?
One position where the Redskins are in pretty good shape heading into the 2014 season is outside linebacker. As long as Brian Orakpo is re-signed, that is.
It was the game of Darrel Young's life. The genial fullback doesn't get much attention. The Redskins have so many other options at the skill positions, after all. But on Sunday afternoon against the San Diego Chargers, Young made a difference in a 30-24 overtime victory at FedEx Field.
That unit is expected to act like clockwork. Hit field goals and extra-point attempts, don't turn the ball over, provide the occasional big play and make sure the opponent doesn't. It's a pretty simple formula, but so far the Washington Redskins have struggled to execute it.
In just two seasons, outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan has become entrenched with the Redskins. He's started every game. He's amassed 16 sacks, intercepted two passes, scored two touchdowns. It took him about no time to become a vital cog.
With the season-opener 17 days away, against Tapp's previous team, it is fair to say the transition is going well. Tapp has found being an outside linebacker in a 3-4 is very similar to being an end in a 4-3.
Doubt crept into Kory Lichtensteiger's mind about two weeks ago. The Washington Redskins' first-string left guard wasn't just worried about whether his surgically repaired right knee would prevent him from playing against New Orleans this Sunday.
John Beck watched a scary movie on Halloween: the film of the Washington Redskins' 23-0 shellacking against the Buffalo Bills.
