If there were to be a title of the Redskins opening chapter of the 2013 season it should be “On the Mend”. The Redskins were able to overcome an injury-ridden 2012 season and reach the postseason after a five year drought from January football.

Over on Yahoo! Sports is a 2012 season in-review and offseason preview for the Washington Redskins as the team prepares to defend its division crown.

The inspection of the 2012 NFC East champions includes summaries of what when right, what went wrong, and a preview of what’s in store for the team as the offseason is freshly upon us.

Find out what they thought of the 2012 season and what the team needs to do to build on its foundation and emulate the success at the conclusion of the 2012 campaign here: Read more »

Williams Trains With College Teammate

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Redskins’ left tackle Trent Williams.  One turned in one of the finest single-season rushing performances in NFL history. The other blocked for the best Redskins’ rushing performance in 80 years.

Now both players are working together to get better.

Just months removed from an ACL reconstructive surgery, Peterson started Week 1 of the 2012 season and finished the year just eight yards shy of Eric Dickerson’s 2,105-yard season. He started in the Pro Bowl for the NFC squad, and would have played behind Williams, who has become one of the best left tackles in the NFL.

Williams anchored a Redskins’ line that blocked for the best single-season rushing performance in franchise history (Alfred Morris, 1,613 yards), as well as the top rushing attack in the league with 2,709 yards on the ground.

No. 71 allowed just three sacks this year, despite the challenge of matching up against some of the premier pass rushers in the NFL today. In fact, Pro Football Focus rated Williams as one of the best players in the league this season in their “2012 Top 51″ list.

So after an incredible turnaround this season, how does the budding star improve on his 2012 season? The answer is simple. If you want to be the best, then you have to train with the best.

Could Redskins Go O-Line With No. 51?

This time last year, the Washington Redskins were in the middle of all draft speculation. The team was slated to select from the number five slot as quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III to cornerbacks Morris Claiborne and Janoris Jenkins had been linked to a spot in the Redskins locker room.

On March 14th, the team made a trade with the St. Louis Rams that shook the foundation of the franchise and sent shock waves across the league, trading away three first-round draft picks along with a second-round selection to move up to the number two slot to eventually select Griffin III.

It’s safe to say one year later that the trade will go down as one of the best moves in team history as Griffin III stabilized a position that has been a revolving door since the team’s Super Bowl XXVI victory in 1992. The risky transaction paid dividends for the team the moment Griffin III put on his number 1o jersey. His presence changed the attitude of the entire organization as they rode the momentum of the move all the way to an NFC East title.

One of the first-round selections that the Redskins gave up was this years pick, leaving the team without a selection until the second-round. While some might think that the draft does not carry as much importance without an opening round selection, this year’s draft may have even more significance as the Redskins look to add pieces to the puzzle in hopes of getting over the hump and into Super Bowl XLVIII.

One position that the team will explore over the next few weeks is the offensive line as they will look to add protection for Griffin III, Alfred Morris, and the league’s reigning rushing attack kings.
