The Redskins announced their fifth Reserve/Future contract today with the signing of wide receiver Braylon Bell.

Bell, an Abilene Christian University product, has spent the last two years playing in the Arena Football League.

This year he caught 19 passes for 202 yards and four touchdowns, splitting time between the Orlando Predators and the Portland Thunder. He was even better the season before, hauling in 17 grabs for 278 yards and five touchdowns for the Utah Blaze.

In October he signed with the Spokane Shock for what would be his third Arena season.

“Braylon is a special player with great size and possesses the ability to go up and get the football,” Shock head coach Andy Olson said at the time of the signing. “He’s a great addition to our football team and I believe he has the physical tools to be one of the best in the AFL.”

Here’s a highlight tape of Bell’s time in Utah. He’s No. 1, for reference.

The Redskins continue their pursuit of Virginia natives.

The team announced the signing of defensive lineman LaKendrick Ross, a Lynchburg College product, to a Reserve/Futures contract today.

Hailing from Portsmouth, Va., Ross played in three preseason games with the Bengals this past season but never appeared in any official games.

Rossstanding at a colossal 6-foot-4, 350 poundswasn’t selected in 2014’s supplemental draft and eventually signed with Cincinnati.

That’s primarily because Ross only has one year of college football under his belt. But, according to Vice Sports, he can do 47 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press and can max out at 405.

What might be worth noting: he is pretty athletic for his size, too. He can dunk a basketball, for example.

The name sounds familiar, and it should.

The Redskins today announced the signing of safety Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith to a Reserve/Futures contract. He rejoins the team after being released during the final round of cuts in August.

His name is also recognizable to just about every NFL fan. Cromartie-Smith is the younger brother of retired fullback Terrelle Smith and is the cousin of Cardinals cornerback Antonio Cromartie and Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Cromartie-Smith, 6-foot-10, 210 pounds, played college football for Texas-El Paso where he earned an All-Conference Honorable Mention as a junior defensive back.

He went undrafted and signed with the Steelers in 2010 and later that year joined the United Football League. He returned to the Steelers in 2011 and was released again during the last round of cuts before the 2012 season.

The Redskins looked north to Canada and announced the signing of Kenneth Horsley, a defensive end, to a Reserve/Futures contract today.

Horsley, a 6-foot-7, 290 pound end, played in the Canadian Football League last season with the Toronto Argonauts.

In spring 2014, Horsley played for the Wyoming Cavalry in the Indoor Football League, where he collected nine tackles, a sack and interception in six games. Here are some clips from his season, including an interception return for a touchdown at the end:

He was born in Newport News, Va. and transferred to Mesabi Range Community College in Virginia, Minn. after studying two years at Bethel University in Minnesota.

Horsley started nine games his senior year at Mesabi, where he tallied 40 tackles, 15 sacks and a defensive touchdown.

Here are some college highlights:

James Gayle is returning to Virginia.

The Redskins signed him today to a Reserve/Futures contract.

The 6-foot-3, 255 pounder grew up in Hampton, Va., and was considered the 25th best strong side defensive end in the nation at Bethel High School.

He accepted a scholarship to play with Virginia Tech, where he had a formidable career on the defensive line.

After redshirting his freshman year, Gayle increased his tackles each successive season, compiling 44 as a senior and earning an All-ACC honorable mention.

He collected 138 tackles and 22 sacks in his four years as a Hokie.

Gayle was projected to be drafted last May but was never selected. Most coaches at the winter combine thought his body type would be better suited for the linebacker position in a 3-4 scheme.

He was eventually signed by the Tennessee Titans but didn’t make the final roster cut. With a year of experience now training as a linebacker, though, he could be a promising fit into the Redskins’ defensive plans.

Fun Fact:

Gayle’s uncle is Shaun Gayle, a 12-year veteran and Super Bowl champion as a Pro Bowl safety with the infamous 1985 Bears defense.

During their Super Bowl run, he was credited with returning the shortest punt (five yards) for a touchdown against the New York Giants in their divisional round playoff victory.

The Washington Redskins have experienced lengthy success against the Philadelphia Eagles, defeating their NFC East foes more than any other opponent dating back to their first matchup at Fenway Park in 1934, a 6-0 victory.

But, throughout their entire time competing against each other, they’ve only squared off against each other in the playoffs one time — a Wild Card Round game on Jan. 5, 1991.

Both the Redskins and Eagles made the playoffs as wildcards (the New York Giants won the division), but due to several tiebreakers, Philadelphia was seeded higher than Washington thus making Veterans Stadium the host site of the game.

Early on, the Eagles looked to be in control in front of the home crowd, taking a 6-0 lead on two Roger Ruzek field goals, but that would be the end of Philadelphia’s scoring, though, as they would be shutout during the rest of the game

Mark Rypien would toss two touchdown passes, meanwhile, and Chip Lohmiller would convert on two field goal attempts.The Redskins would win the game by a final of 20-6, as Buddy Ryan would coach his last game for the Eagles.

Below is a box score of that game:

Dexter Manley To Attend Saturday Inova Blood Drive

Posted by Stephen Czarda on January 5, 2015 – 11:51 am

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Redskins’ Secretary of Defense, Dexter Manley, will be at Redskins Park this Saturday for Inova’s blood drive.

From 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Inova will be holding a blood drive at the team’s headquarters in Loudoun County, Va., where there will be a ton of neat activities, but, of course, most important is the opportunity to help save lives.

Inova Blood Donor Services supplies 24 hospitals in Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C., metro area with lifesaving blood and blood products. One blood donation can save up to three lives.

While at the Park, you can get a limited edition Redskins shirt, a VIP Tour of the facility, a picture with the Super Bowl Trophies and the chance to win a 2015 VIP Game Experience including two premium tickets, the opportunity to stand on the field during the National Anthem and more.

Manley is a two-time Super Bowl Champion with the Redskins and one of the team’s 80 greatest players.

In 1986, his best year statistically, Manley was selected as an All-Pro, recording a single-season team record 18.5 sacks.

Manley won’t be the only former Redskin in attendance, though, as he’ll be joined by several other burgundy and golders.

Check back with The Redskins Blog later in the week to see who they are.

Silas Redd Spending Time With Son During New Year

Silas Redd Jr.’s Son Turns One-Year Old

Washington Redskins running back Silas Redd has spoke openly about the many reasons he plays football. The love of the game and how it fills his craving for competition are near the top of the list, but it’s his son, Nico, that drives him to be a better player and a better person.

As he went back home for the New Year’s holiday, Redd and Nico spent a lot of time together, as evident through a quick stroll down the USC product’s timeline:

During the second-annual Back To School Shopping Spree at the Macy’s in the Short Pump Town Center in Richmond, Va., in September, Redd helped young students pick out winter clothes.

Redd said the shopping spree helped him hone his skills as a father.

“Interacting with them is helping prep me for when my son gets to this age,” he said. “And I can take him back to school shopping. It’s an amazing feeling, and anytime I can give back I definitely plan to.”
