Redskins Excited To Return To Team

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 11, 2013 – 6:03 pm

Darrel Young

On Monday, the Washington Redskins announced that it has re-signed five players who were instrumental in the team’s late season push to the playoffs and the 2012 NFC East title; the first in 13 years, as well as tenuring another.

On the offensive side of the pigskin the Redskins re-signed fullback Darrel Young, the lead blocker to record-setting running back Alfred Morris, offensive guard Kory Lichtensteiger and tight end Logan Paulsen.

On defense, the team brought back linebacker Rob Jackson, tendered nose tackle Chris Baker, and signed long snapper Nick Sundberg from the special teams unit.

Find out what the players had to say about returning to the Burgundy and Gold and the chance to conquer the NFC East once again.

After being signed to the active roster late during the 2011 campaign, Baker worked his way up the depth chart, seeing action in a career-high 14 games during the 2012 season and was a key backup to starter Barry Cofield. He recorded his first career tackle in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals .

Baker is simply ecstatic about his possible return to the DMV after being tendered!

After a possible career-threatening injury cut Lichtensteiger’s 2011 season short, many wonder if he would ever be the same player that he was during his first four years in the NFL.

Well he quickly extinguished any fears of an affect on his performance, starting all 16 games for the first time in his career. At the conclusion of the 2012 season, his teammates voted for him to be honored with the team’s 2012 Ed Block Courage Award winner, a prize given to a player who exceeds in the face of adverse conditions.

Number 78 let Redskins Nation know that you can expect to see him around for years to come after signing a new deal to stay in the nation’s capital.

Rob Jackson was not projected to be a starter for the 2012 campaign, but rather a key backup on the outside of the 3-4 defensive scheme behind Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan.

However, after Orakpo went down with a season-ending in Week 2, Jackson was asked to fill in for the two-time Pro Bowler. In an indication of what was to come from the former seventh round selection, Jackson posted three tackles, a pass defensed, and an interception in his first career start against the Bengals.

He would go on to set career-highs across the board at every defensive statistical category and cannot wait to build on his successful 2012 campaign.

Nick Sundberg proved that he is hands down one of the toughest players in the league after breaking his arm in the team’s Week 1 victory against the New Orleans Saints but stayed in the game to help the team stave off the Saint’s late game push.

Knowing his importance to the team’s success, head coach Mike Shanahan placed Sundberg on injured reserve with the chance to return later in the season. Long snappers are almost never tagged with the ability to return.

Fun fact: the Redskins were undefeated (8-0) during the regular season with Sundberg in the lineup.

Logan Paulsen was expected to be the second tight end option behind Fred Davis, however, after Davis went down with a season-ending injury in Week 7, he was asked to be quarterback Robert Griffin III‘ security blank in short yardage situations for the remainder of the season.

In the team’s playoff game against Seattle, Paulsen caught his first career postseason touchdown pass, a four-yarder from Griffin III.

Paulsen took to Facebook to let everyone know about his return.

While Young does not have a social media account, we can confirm that he can’t wait to strap on his Redskins helmet once again!

    so last year our needs were: a starting QB,CB,S,and a RT. This year, nothing has changed. Except we traded away any chance of filling one of those needs.

    Nice to have these guys back. Hope Fred Davis stays.

    We still need a RT but maybe Tom Compton can develop into that. If not then Polumbus will be serviceable for another year, until we get out of this bogus cap fine. We need several new CBs and a true starting FS. It would be nice to have a new FS and SS who are good at coverage and have Doughty come in for safety blitzes and continue to be a ST stud. And then we can keep Gomes and either Bernstine or Pugh as a 5th backup Safety. At CB we should keep Wilson and Crawford, sign a starter alongside Wilson, and fill out the rest with the draft.
