Reggie Jones Saw Opportunity With The Redskins

Posted by Matt Terl on January 14, 2011 – 10:13 am

Heading into the last weeks of the 2010 regular season, Reggie Jones seemed to be in a pretty good spot. He was on the practice squad of the New Orleans Saints, a playoff team that everyone assumed would be poised to make a Super Bowl run. His wife had recently given birth to his first kid, a son. He even had a Super Bowl ring from his time on the Saints’ injured reserve the season before.

Then the Redskins called and wanted to sign him to their active roster, which put Jones in an interesting quandary.

“It was tough,” he told me shortly after he arrived here. “Should I stay in New Orleans, be comfortable, ride through the playoffs, maybe get another Super Bowl Ring? You know, have the chance to be known as two-time champion Reggie Jones. Or I could go to a team that wants to play me and have an opportunity to turn the program around. To help turn a program around.” Read more »

A Few Pictures From Getaway Day

Posted by Matt Terl on January 5, 2011 – 9:57 am

Monday was getaway day, as the players packed up their lockers, got rid of their trash, and headed off into whatever it is they were planning to do this offseason. It’s also the day when the media gets footage of them doing all those things. Which means that it’s ALSO also the day when I take pictures of the media getting that footage.

Above, a media horde jokes with Carlos Rogers, who was straightforward about his potential future with the Redskins. “I wanna stay,” Rogers said, “but it’s a business situation. I can say I wanna stay all I want, but in the end it comes down to a business — and it’s a business on both sides of the table. So hopefully we can get something done.”

Below, more pictures of men putting things into trashbags while other people take pictures of them.

Redskins Sign Practice Squad Guys To Reserve/Futures Contracts

Posted by Matt Terl on January 4, 2011 – 4:40 pm

The Redskins announced today the signing of six of their practice squad players to Reserve/Futures contracts. These are players who weren’t on an active roster at the end of the season that the team wants to have under contract to bring in to training camp.

Here are the six guys; since all of them were previously with the Redskins’ practice squad (which isn’t always the case with these kinds of signings), I’ve added a brief reminder of what you might’ve heard about them:

  • Selvish Capers, OL, the Redskins’ seventh-round draft choice in 2010, converted tight end out of West Virginia, currently wearing Chris Samuels’ old number. Also, pictured above.
  • Rashaad Duncan, DT, an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh in 2009, and a relatively late addition to the Redskins practice squad.
  • Xavier Fulton, OL, fifth-round draft pick by Tampa Bay in 2009, a big guy who has done voiceover work in the past
  • Taurus Johnson, WR. a bigger receiver than most of the guys who saw the field for Washington in 2010, has been on the practice squad since early November.
  • Shawnbrey McNeal, RB, went from The U to SMU where he became the first 1,000 yard rusher for coach June Jones, signed the same day as…
  • Maurice Price, WR, has bounced around the NFL since going undrafted in 2007. Like McNeal, sees some inspiration in Redskins WR Anthony Armstrong.

And seeing inspiration in Armstrong isn’t exactly a bad thing. When the Redskins announced their 2010 Reserve/Futures guys just under a year ago, Anthony Armstrong was one of the names on the list. Darrel Young was another. If there’s one thing this coaching staff has demonstrated, it’s a willingness to cultivate talent and promote guys they believe can help. So become aware of these folks now and save yourself some trouble come training camp.
