Topic - Kedric Golston
When the Washington Redskins were placed in salary cap jail by the NFL, Kedric Golston had to say goodbye to his best friend on the team.
The Redskins' defensive line could use an upgrade but with other areas of need can the Redskins afford to address it this year?
Kedric Golston doesn't make highlight reel plays but he's a solid, veteran leader for the Redskins.
Depending on the health of Stephen Bowen and Adam Carriker, the Redskins may be in the market for a defensive end (or two).
The Redskins' defense could have a very familiar look to it in 2014. Will they be able to take a step forward?
How did Kedric Golston find out that his coach, Mike Shanahan had been fired? Via Twitter on Monday morning. Watch him explain it here.
In three games, Washington has given up 1,464 total yards and 1,068 passing yards. Ouch. The defense is far from the Redskins' only problem, but fixing it probably belongs atop the to-do list.
How do you prepare for something you have never seen? That was the conundrum all summer for the Washington Redskins coaching staff. The Philadelphia Eagles, their first opponent, hired University of Oregon coach Chip Kelly to rejuvenate the franchise after it thudded to earth with a 4-12 record last season.
Overall, coach Mike Shanahan lived up to his word. The Redskins mostly remained idle, limited by having only $3 million or so of salary cap space because of their $18 million cap penalty.
The Redskins' Alexander and Golston are among several pairs of NFL teammates or former teammates who have ventured together into the business world. Some players pursue it as a hobby. Others hope to maximize their celebrity and disposable income to start building for their lives after football.
Robert Griffin III stood behind the end zone inside the Washington Redskins' indoor practice facility Wednesday morning, pulled up his right pants leg and fiddled with that darned brace on his right knee.
Barry Cofield wasn't heaping praise on himself or teammates along the Washington Redskins' defensive line Sunday after the 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Redskins allowed 411 yards, and the veteran nose tackle said he'll spend the week reminding guys of what needs to be better.
Kedric Golston got all too used to playing out the string on some bad Washington Redskins teams during his NFL career. He has the mentality down pat
Robert Griffin III needed a first down, so he took off and leapt into the air to get it. Three Carolina Panthers defenders converged and made the stop, but not until after Griffin finished what he set out to do, sore ribs or not.
Understanding the reality of where his Washington Redskins are after eight weeks, coach Mike Shanahan on Monday busted out the phrase that players agreed best describes the upcoming game against the Carolina Panthers: "I think everybody knows that it's a must-win game," he said.
"Hopefully the money's going to be used on the right kind of player to help us win football games," Golston said. "For years, teams have spent tons of money and maxed out on the cap, and that doesn't mean they've had productive seasons. It's not about necessarily spending the most money."
"We lost some good football players," Golston said. "Obviously Lorenzo Alexander wasn't able to stay here because they didn't have the money to pay him."
