Combine Look Back: The Class of 2011

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 24, 2014 – 4:01 pm



Although 40-yard dashes, broad jumps and bench press reps don’t really give us an idea of a prospect’s viability as a football player, the physical tests can give a glimpse at a man’s raw athletic potential and ability to thrive in a competitive atmosphere. Over the course of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, the Redskins blog will take a look back at how Washington’s past three draft classes fared in Indianapolis.

ESPN Tracked Miguel Maysonet’s NFL Path

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 11, 2013 – 7:00 am



Miguel Maysonet’s pre-draft process had an added wrinkle.

While the running back was aiming to boost his stock out of Stony Brook, ESPN New York reporter Rich Cimini followed him around with a notepad.

On Tuesday, the Redskins added Maysonet to the practice squad to fill in for Jawan Jamison, who was promoted to the active roster after the team placed Evan Royster on the reserve/injured list.

Before Maysonet came to D.C., Cimini chronicled his path from small school stud to undrafted free agent in five-part series. Read more »

Third-Year Duo Facing New Challenge

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 10, 2013 – 4:16 pm


It’s the worst possible news a player can receive—you’ve been placed on Injured Reserve.

Sandwiched between talk of his future and who will be under center this weekend in Atlanta, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan announced yesterday that third-year running back Evan Royster was being shelved on IR after suffering a high ankle sprain.

With Week 17 confirmed as the last game of the season—only three weeks away–Shanahan said Royster’s recovery wouldn’t complete until after the regular season window closed.

The former Penn State star isn’t the only third-year Redskin that will be battle the tough road of recovery so many athletes face daily this offseason. Just three weeks prior to Royster’s painful injury, Shanahan announced that Leonard Hankerson was going under the knife for ACL—and later discovered LCL—surgery.

Together the 2011 draft classmates are vowing to return better than ever.

Players Looking Both Behind And Ahead

Well it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that this franchise is possibly on the verge of something big and last night was living proof that this team’s depth is unquestionably as deep as any of the other 31 NFL franchises.

Hey how else do you explain the drubbings that have taken place over the last two games? Granted neither the Bills nor Buccaneers made the playoffs last season but both have been selected on various “must watch” lists for the coming season.

Despite the slate being wiped clean as of this morning and every team restarting at 0-0, the Redskins have tasted success once again and demand for seconds. As the team flew back to the D.C. area in the wee hours of the morning, the players not only tweeted their approval of the first 4-0 preseason since 1985, but of the preseason being a thing of the past and the real games starting now.

You have spoken and the results are in for who you believe will be second on the Washington Redskins running back depth chart behind sophomore Alfred Morris.

With his 1,613-yard, 13 touchdown performance to include a trio of end zone trips against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football to end the season, No. 46 is the clear-cut starter in the backfield entering 2013.

But what about the other running backs behind him?

Well without further ado here is who you picked to be Morris’ primary backup this year.

Over on SI.com is a 2013 offseason preview for the Redskins, highlighting several areas of success, concern, and modification that can help get Washington over the hump. Let’s just say some of them are creative.

Morris, Lichtensteiger Make ‘All-Joe Team’

The 21st All-Joe Team was recently announced by USA Today and Redskins running back Alfred Morris and guard Kory Lichtensteiger were selected.

The All-Joe Team was originally comprised by USA Today Sports writer Larry Weisman in honor of Kansas City defensive lineman Joe Phillips after he helped teammates Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith combined to take down quarterbacks 29 times during the 1992 season.

While Thomas and Smith received the brunt of attention, Phillips was instrumental in paving the way to get his teammates to the ball.

The team is an annual presentation of some of the hardest working players in the league. Often, these players are deemed “over-achievers” and rarely get the same level of media attention that some of the top superstars in the league receive. The only parameter of inclusion to the All-Joe Team is that the player has yet to be selected to the Pro Bowl.

However, many All-Joe Team selections go on to be selected to the annual contest in the Rainbow State. Prime example: 2011 All-Joe and 2012 Pro Bowl special teamer Lorenzo Alexander.

Find out why Morris and Lichtensteiger were deserving of the honor here:

Will You Be My [Belated] Valentine?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on February 15, 2013 – 5:17 pm


Mother Nature graces the DMV with brisk winter breezes during the month of February, causing many to be slightly on the grouchy side at times as they wait for the flowers to bloom and for family beach vacation season to kick into gear.

Today, however, spirits among the masses seems to be a little more cheery than a usual day during the shortest month of the year. There’s been an increase in heart-shaped objects, bouquets of flowers, and people ignoring their beach-bod diets in favor of adding some chocolate to their routines.

It’s almost like there’s a feeling of love in the air.

Well folks that’s because today is Valentine’s Day, the annual day of love!

Redskins Nation has a lot to love during this holiday as we are currently under blue skies, Punxsutawney Phil ( for those of you who don’t know, Phil is the famous groundhog of Groundhog Day) saw his shadow forecasting spring is on its way, and knowing that their favorite football team shocked the league this season claiming the NFC East title may be the sweetest treat of all!

The Redskins themselves have caught the love bug and have been spending their day with loved ones.

Find out what some of the players have been doing after being struck with Cupid’s arrow here:

Royster Ready For Different Kind Of ‘Chip’

As the DMV slowly dethaws from the blistering cold weather this past week, forecasts predict warmer weather upon the horizon. While the NFL season come to a conclusion this weekend, thoughts are beginning to shift towards spring and summer plans.

While the NFL is no doubt the best league in the United States, as the season ends and the temperatures rise, spring brings one of the best times of  the year for sports fans.

The NFL Draft, MLB Opening Day, NCAA March Madness, the NBA playoffs, and the NHL Playoffs are among the best sporting spectacles of the season.

However, as the thermometer increases the grass isn’t the only green that can be seen. The Masters is internationally recognized for its green jacket given to the winner of the prestigious tournament.

The PGA Tour “chipped” into full force this past weekend and perked the interest of two Redskins players.

Find out what the players had to say here about their “driving”  desire of the game:

Who Will Lead The Redskins In Rushing?

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 25, 2012 – 3:34 pm

(AP photos)

A recent @Redskins Twitter poll turned up some interesting results about who Redskins fans feel will lead the team in rushing for the 2012 season.

The interesting aspect is that one of the candidates is a quarterback — rookie Robert Griffin III. Though many have expressed concern about Griffin III getting too many carries per game and risking injury, there’s no denying that he’s very dangerous with the ball in his hands.

Here’s the results of that poll, which got more than 450 votes this past weekend prior to the Redskins’ Week 3 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals:
