Darrion Scott had been a professional football player for five years prior to the 2011 season, but he said it wasn’t until late last year that he really learned how to be a pro.
Released by the Washington Redskins during Week 10, Scott, a defensive end, found himself without a team for the first time in his career.

The Redskins Charitable Foundation and Redskins players Oshiomogho Atogwe, David Anderson, Terrence Austin, Brandon Banks, DeJon Gomes, Sean Locklear, Darrion Scott, Donte’ Stallworth, Josh Wilson, Dough Worthington, Logan Paulsen and Travon Bellamy went to the Macy’s in downtown D.C. to hand out winter clothes to 300 underserved children from the greater metro area.
This is a big event for the Redskins and Macy’s, but it’s also a hit with the players. This is a rare opportunity for them to interact with their youngest fans, and provide them with something that they really need:

Upon arrival, the players mingled with the kids, and took a liking to the kids’ balloons. They instantly gravitated to the balloon booth and got arrows, swords and all manner of Christmas critters:
And then there was Redskins returner Brandon Banks, who got a reindeer balloon hat before helping kids get a Redskins cap and gloves:
Redskins safety Oshiomogho Atogwe showed off his fashionista chic style, by helping find coats for some of the little girls. If patrolling center field doesn’t work for O.J., I think he has a natural gift for retail: Read more »

Today is a good day to have your Redskins roster printed and at the ready. In the first defensive stand, a 10-play drive by the Cowboys, the Redskins subbed in defensive linemen Chris Neild, Darrion Scott, and Kentwan Balmer. Those are No.’s 95, 76, and 93, for those of you following at home.
It was a strange first drive for the Redskins, who used two running backs not named Roy Helu, Ryan Torain, or Tashard Choice. Head coach Mike Shanahan said that Anthony Armstrong and Donte Stallworth should see some playing time this week–he just didn’t say where.
Today features a battle between Outback mates at the punter position, with both Sav Rocca and Mat McBriar hailing from Melbourne, Australia. Both players have factored into today’s game, with a pair of punts a piece. Rocca leads in head-to-head stats, averaging 47 yards-per-punt (44 for McBriar), and no touchbacks to McBriar’s one. If the defense keeps playing this well, it could be a competition to keep an eye on.
But the best play of the quarter, was running back Tashard Choice’s 9-yard gainer for his first play as a Washington Redskins player. No. 40 hit the hole, made contact, spun out of the lineman’s grasp, and trucked cornerback Terrence Newman.
Welcome to Washington, good sir. Now lead your people to the end zone.
Redskins trail after 15: Dallas 7, Washington 0.

Last Tuesday, the Redskins cut receiver Donte Stallworth and defensive lineman Darrion Scott. On Sunday, the Redskins lost receiver Leonard Hankerson and defensive lineman Kedric Golston to season ending injuries.
This Tuesday, the Redskins have re-signed Stallworth and Scott, solidifying positions of need on the team.
And they also brought back two of the best-liked Redskins to a locker room that needs their positive motivation.
Even after being cut on the week of his birthday, Stallworth was a positive motivator to his former teammates, many of whom he had selflessly mentored since training camp:

DeJon Gomes was especially touched: Read more »

While the Redskins may have declined Victory Monday last week, the team earned it this week, and has an extra day as they prepare for Dallas. In the interest of keeping players fresh and focused, the team isn’t holding organized activities today, but that doesn’t mean that players aren’t coming in to workout and improve after yesterday’s close victory.
Receiver Donte Stallworth earned his first active game as a Redskin, and caught two passes for 16 yards. No day off for him:

The team today announced the signing of defensive lineman Darrion Scott, a former Minnesota Viking and Ohio State Buckeye who played for current Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett on the UFL’s Florida Tuskers. Scott has 9.5 sacks in his 32 game NFL career, but I find it hard to imagine any of them were as straightforward as this blindside shot from his college days.
Even if it does nothing else, all of this defensive line stockpiling should make for an interesting and competitive series of minicamps and training camp. Read more »
