Even though they were only dressed in sweats and couldn’t participate in any team activities, the Redskins free agent signees were a big hit with the fans today.
The Redskins released the names of all official signings so far, as follows:
Stephen Bowen, DL
Santana Moss, WR
Chris Chester, OL
Kellen Clemens, QB
Barry Cofield, DL
Donte Stallworth, WR
Josh Wilson, CB
Stallworth and Moss were seen chatting on the sidelines during practice:
On the back field, the defense was shadowed by defensive linemen Cofield and Bowen. Fun fact about these two, they are both six-year veterans, both nearly the same height (6-4 and 6-5, respectively), same age (27), and the exact same listed weight (306 pounds).
Yesterday, head coach Mike Shanahan described the pair as great natural leaders and–not surprisingly–very similar players.
“I said if we could get them, I think we could really help our football team,” he said. “You get two guys who are 27 years old, two guys who are natural leaders, and that is how you build your football team. You build it up front on the offensive and defensive lines. We have a couple of guys that I believe are future team captains and can lead.”
Check out the video of the two learning their playbooks at practice today, below:
