As the clock ticks down to the start of free agency, Redskins linebacker London Fletcher sat down with Sirius XM NFL Radio hosts Alex Marvez and Bill Polian to discuss his plans for next season.
While it has been widely circulated that the Redskins wish to retain their captain and he has an interest in returning, he also left open the possibility of his departure. If he remains unsigned at the start of free agency on March 13, he is free to pursue any options.
Regardless of where he goes, he said that he welcomes to opportunity to be a mentor to the next generation of teammates. For him, it’s a natural progression as a professional that was instilled at him early in his career: Read more »

News broke earlier this week that the Redskins had re-signed interior offensive lineman Will Montgomery, in a deal that may be more important than initially meets the eye.
With only four interior linemen on the roster for next season, the Redskins had an obvious need to address, with the ability to make other moves. Montgomery’s proficiency at both center and guard gives the Redskins the option to target either position in the draft or free agency.
And if injuries strike again in 2012, the Redskins know that they have a quality player to fill in accordingly.

Happy soggy Wednesday to Redskins fans in the DMV, and a very happy Leap Day to everyone around the globe that follows the Gregorian Calendar. For the record, we have respect for all calendars here at Redskins.com.
In honor of the obscure extra day that’s four years in the making, as well as all of the award shows going on this time of year, I thought we’d take a look back at the 2011 season and honor the top Redskins “leaping” plays of the year. The plays were voted on by yours truly, and preferential treatment was given to those with commemorative Youtube clips.
With that being said, it’s a pretty good batch of plays: Read more »

[Editor’s Note: Officially, no Redskins official is talking on the record about Robert Griffin III or a potential trade, so any rumors and reports – in any publication – are speculation at this point.]
This just in: Baylor prospect Robert Griffin III is an exciting playmaker at quarterback, and the Redskins could possibly have interest in drafting him.
Last season, Redskins quarterbacks combined for 14th in the NFL in total passing yards and 26th in aerial scoring. They threw for 3,773 yards, 19 touchdowns and 24 interceptions, and a rating of 73.3 yards.
For an unfair comparison, Griffin threw for 4,293 yards, 37 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also rushed for another 699 yards and 10 touchdowns, deep in the heart of Texas.
To be clear, this is not groundbreaking stuff. The Redskins are, and should be interested in any player that can help them upgrade their roster. A player of Griffin’s caliber is going to attract attention from all corners of the league, and the main question remaining is who will give up the most to acquire his talent?
A majority of NFL.com experts are now predicting that team is the Washington Redskins: Read more »
