Free agent running back Tim Hightower had been working out around the facilities, rehabbing his leg and getting strong before the start of free agency. Now, he’s back in Arizona, and reportedly had a mountain hike end in rescue, late last week.
According to FOX-10 in Pheonix, Ariz., Hightower and wife Krista were stranded on Camelback Mountain after getting lost close to dark. Rather than trying to hike down in the dark, Hightower did the smart thing and called for help from local authorities.
Reports were that neither of the two were hurt, but perhaps a tad embarassed. Thank goodness for invasive news reports (which I’m passing along to you).
Redskins fans hoping for a reunion in free agency will be pleased to know that Hightower was back to working out today, in Arizona. He tweeted a few motivational messages and showed evidence of him cutting on his surgically repaired knee: Read more »

Some of you astutely noted (and some sarcastically noted) that the announcement of Adam Carriker’s signing was delayed a week from when the original deal was struck. So, here’s the story behind the story.
Mostly delays have to do with filing the paperwork and getting the necessary John Hancock’s on the dotted lines. Carriker moved his offseason home out to Colorado this offseason, and has been busy lifting weights and being a Dad. Carriker had to get back to the east coast in order to sign his paperwork, and the paperwork then had to be submitted and approved by the league.
Only then are we allowed to talk about it.
But all of this came after he over-scheduled his Super Tuesday, as he discussed in his recent blog post on ProInterviews.org. It’s a candid narrative that walks readers through the initial “stomach butterflies” of free agency, all the way through the exciting end–back where he began:

Without causing a commotion, there are a few reasons why Redskins Nation may want to blow off work and patrol the streaming broadcast of today’s Baylor Pro Day:
1. There are projected to be two elite quarterbacks available in April’s NFL Draft.
2. Regardless of order, they are presumed to be going in the top two picks.
3. The Redskins have finalized a trade to move up to No. 2.
4. One of those players is having his Pro Day today.
There are no guarantees in sports (or life in general), but you may draw your own conclusions from there. Read more »

March should officially be known as bracketology month, both for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, and for anything else worth voting on (delicious food, cute animals, name of the year, coolest things ever, etc.).
At the end of it, who even cares about basketball anymore?
That’s the premise of the NFL.com bracket to determine The Greatest Team of All Time. With 46 Super Bowls and 64 entrants, there were obviously some teams without a ring on the list. Four Redskins teams made the initial cut, for a whopping one-sixteenth of all entrants.
That number sounded bigger in my head.
After round one, the Redskins are tragically reduced to one team, as the 49ers fans have hijacked the entire process (six teams remaining).
