Free Agency Update: Mike Williams & Phillip Daniels signed, Lorenzo Alexander Extended

Posted by Matt Terl on March 5, 2010 – 1:30 pm

The Redskins announced today that they have signed Lorenzo Alexander — now officially being listed as a linebacker! — to a contract extension, and have signed defensive end Phillip Daniels and offensive lineman Mike Williams. These are not barn-burning, exciting moves. They’re not the kind of moves that lead to press conferences and “Breaking News” tags on ESPN.

In fact, general manager Bruce Allen explicitly told Larry Weisman of Redskins.com that the Redskins were not involved in the pursuit of high-priced free agent defensive end Julius Peppers, despite rumors (and nearly universal expectations) to the contrary.

And I’m absolutely in favor of all of that. The front office keeps saying that they have a plan for this offseason, and the deliberate pace they’ve taken reinforces that impression. It’s been a pleasure to see.

To celebrate, here’s some video of new signee Phillip Daniels squatting an insane-sounding 722 pounds back in 2008.

Friday, March 5: A Redskins Blog Fred Smoot Retrospective

Posted by Matt Terl on March 5, 2010 – 9:18 am

“I remember walking in here as a rookie — only NINE YEARS ago — and I feel like … I blinked and it’s gone. I blinked and it’s gone.” – Fred Smoot, talking back in November.

The Redskins released ten players yesterday, and in nearly every case I can understand why. Most of the cuts make the team younger, they allow the new coaches and front office to bring in “their” guys, and — because of the uncapped year — the moves could be made without destroying the team’s ability to compete financially.

The players released were all good guys, and — like general manager Bruce Allen said in his press conference yesterday — “If all of them signed in the next week we’ll be happy for them.” Just about all of them were good quotes, good locker room guys, and good sources of blog material, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t make special mention of cornerback Fred Smoot.

Say what you want about Smoot’s on-field performance; he’s definitely one of the quickest-witted people I’ve ever met, and at points over the last couple of seasons it felt like the easiest way to get a blog item was to ask Fred Smoot any question about anything and just transcribe what he said.

Since it looks like I’ll be losing that opportunity (although I’m irrationally holding out hope that the team re-signs him for the veteran minimum purely for blogging purposes), let’s trot the old stuff out for one last go-round. Here (in no particular order) are ten of my favorite Smootcentric blog items.

1) Smoot Goes Bowling – Smoot sparked a whole bunch of drama by claiming that he could bowl on the PBA tour — bowling fans are a prickly lot — and then had a chance to show off his skills when the whole team went to the bowling alley during training camp last year. This was the result:
