On Wednesday, the Washington Redskins continued to mark off another box on their plan of winning back-to-back NFC East titles by signing one of the most important players on the 2012 team; right tackle Tyler Polumbus.
Robert Griffin III burst onto the season with an epic debut performance en route to AP Rookie of the Year. Alfred Morris went from unknown back from Florida Atlantic University to owner of the franchise’s rushing record. Santana Moss had a career resurgence, catching a team-high eight touchdown passes and showing that he still has untouchable speed that Redskins Nation has been so fortunate to see for eight years and counting.
The trio can thank Polumbus and the rest of the offensive line for helping them reach unprecedented success as they paved the way for the league’s top rushing attack and gave Griffin III ample amount of time to find open receivers down the field.
Find out just how happy Polumbus is to wear Burgundy and Gold again next season here:

Last year, the impact player of the draft was quarterback Robert Griffin III, who joined forces with running back Alfred Morris for immediate rookie impact.
This year, the Redskins will again be looking for a player that can come in and contribute right away. The difference this year is the team will have to wait until the second round to find said player. But have no fear: a playmaker can be found at number 51.
With the release of CB DeAngelo Hall, it goes without saying that the roster is pretty slim in the secondary which means the team will certainly need to address the position in the draft, barring any trades or free agent signings.
The good news for Redskins fans is that this year’s draft is incredibly deep in the secondary with talented players across the board. Consensus among NFL experts is that this draft class has upwards of double-digit safeties and cornerbacks with NFL-starter caliber skills whom could have an immediate impact and should be available deep into the second round.
The uncertainty is what order they will come off the board. So let’s go ahead and take a look at our updated Mock Draft Tracker and a few players the experts think the Redskins may have their eye on. Read more »

Sibling rivalries are as old as time itself; the perfect gift to nurture and humble anybody during their most important years of development.
Who can run faster? Who can get more skips out of that one perfect stone? Who will score more touchdowns during the upcoming high school football season? Whatever the contest may be, the urge to be better than your sibling can drive you to do things you didn’t think were possible.
Healthy competition brings out the best in everyone and in an athletic family, or one with a sports rich tradition, that competition can bread family wide success.
