A Whole Bunch Of Signings, Including A Few Familiar Faces

Posted by Matt Terl on April 19, 2010 – 5:08 pm

The Redskins announced the signing of four guys today. Two of them are familiar from previous stints here of varying degrees of brevity, one is probably familiar to fantasy football aficionados and Denver Broncos fans, and the other is another nose tackle.

The Nose Tackle

The nose tackle is Howard Green, who is notable for two things:

1) Being the sort of large, stump-like player that Albert Haynesworth is not, which makes him a natural nose tackle in a three-man front.

2) Having played for current Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett back in 2004 on the New Orleans Saints, so he’s got some familiarity with the system here. Green came into the league in 2002, and spent last year with the New York Jets. Read more »

How The Redskins Might Trade During The NFL Draft

Posted by Matt Terl on April 19, 2010 – 12:11 pm

There was exactly one thing in general manager Bruce Allen’s predraft press conference that was definitely, beyond a shadow of a doubt, true. Heading into the Q&A portion of the event, he asked the assembled media to “understand that I’m not gonna get too specific” and followed up by noting, “I’m gonna attempt not to lie to y’all. Keyword: attempt.”

It’s the time of year when nothing an NFL executive says can fully be believed, and it’s good to hear Allen being upfront about that. So as I list some quick bullet points of what else was said, remember that they could all be completely untrue.

  • The team is continuing to explore trading Jason Campbell, and has had “some people interested.” (Gary Fitzgerald covers this well on the Redskins.com mothership.)
  • Other than that, the team has not explored trading its own players.
  • Like head coach Mike Shanahan yesterday, Allen said that the team is looking forward to Albert Haynesworth coming in and contributing.
  • The Redskins haven’t ruled out selecting a QB in this draft.
  • The team seems likely to keep their fourth overall pick, because it’s tough to move a top 5 pick.

Actually, that last one is almost certainly true as well, and Allen explained the reason why. “You know, that point chart that whoever came up with some years ago is really a deterrent to trading. If you analyze that, it takes so many draft choices just to move a few slots somewhat.” Read more »
