The Redskins drafted NC State cornerback David Amerson in the second round of the draft Friday night, 51st overall, and Florida pass-catching tight end Jordan Reed in the third, 85th overall. The selections demonstrated coach Mike Shanahan’s affinity for athletes with exceptional physical measureables.
With the No. 2 overall pick, you expect an immediate impact player. With No. 51? Who knows what you'll get? That's kind of what makes the draft fun.
Staring at a potent one-two running punch of quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Marshawn Lynch, the Washington Redskins knew they were in for a tough time against the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC wild-card round. They made it the game plan to stop them.
While Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is getting a lot of the headlines heading into Sunday's playoff game, the Washington Redskins' defenders have no question who is the real newsmaker on the Seattle offense.
A slight smile finally brightened Jim Haslett's hardened countenance after midnight Monday morning. His wife, Beth, and daughter, Kelsey, walked alongside him up the ramp that leads from the Washington Redskins' locker room out of FedEx Field.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III expects to have the entire playbook at his disposal in Sunday night's NFC East championship game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Cedric Griffin's four-game drug suspension has created an opportunity for some of the Washington Redskins' unproven cornerbacks to contribute to a possible postseason push.
Robert Griffin III and London Fletcher were the last two players out of the Washington Redskins' locker room shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday.
Brandon Meriweather returned to the Washington Redskins' defense two Sundays ago just long enough to tease them with hard evidence of what might have been.
Previewing the Thanksgiving Day matchup between the Redskins and Cowboys.
Brandon Meriweather's impact was immediate and noticeable. An interception, a couple of pass break-ups and a handful of tackles made the Washington Redskins defense look totally different, until the safety tore the ACL in his right knee.
Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall on Tuesday afternoon physically threatened a newspaper reporter from whom he had to be separated during a profane confrontation about an article in which Hall insisted he was misquoted.
Perry Riley jumped up from the turf, fresh off a quarterback sack, and went right into a B-boy stance. The Washington Redskins' 31-6 rout of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday featured rare occasions for the defense to celebrate, so players seized the opportunity whenever they could.
Look at the Philadelphia Eagles: Running back LeSean McCoy and wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin are shiny weapons that should make gears click on offense pretty fast.
Washington Redskins players were scattered around the country last Sunday afternoon during their bye, temporarily away from the misery of their 3-6 season, when opportunity came knocking.
Haslett said the 24-year-old got moved around plenty but was often dealing with extra protection.
"He's doing all right with it. He still gets his pressures in different ways," Haslett said.
