The Washington Redskins have agreed to terms on a contract with rookie tight end Fred Davis (http://www.footballguys.com/DaviFr01-1.php), the team announced on Saturday. To make room for Davis on the roster, the Redskins released tight end Tyler Ecker. Davis is the last of the Redskins' 10 draft picks to sign with the club. Ecker was a 2007 Redskins' seventh-round draft pick. He spent his rookie season on injured reserve with a groin injury.

Not thinking Fred Davis does much to jeopardize the value of Chris Cooley, but damn, I was going to pick Tyler Ecker as my sleeper TE this year. Just kidding of course.

Randle-El


HC Jim Zorn was impressed with WR Antwaan Randle El (http://www.footballguys.com/RandAn00-1.php)'s speed at Redskins' practice today in his first real action since undergoing knee surgery in May of this year.

Good news for Washington. I am sure Washington will rely on him quite often this season.

Washington Redskins defensive end Phillip Daniels, who was hurt in the morning practice, will undergo surgery to repair his torn left anterior cruciate ligament Friday. Second-year defensive end Alex Buzbee, who was hurt 30 minutes into the afternoon practice, has a ruptured right Achilles' tendon and will miss the season, obviously. He will have surgery Monday. Washington traded for injured defensive end Erasmus James, but he is not close to being ready to play right now as he recovers from knee surgery, and is likely to begin the season on PUP. The Redskins have traded for Jason Taylor of Miami.

Tough news for Daniels and Buzbee, but Washington was quick to replace him/them with the Taylor deal.

Washington Redskins S LaRon Landry (hamstring), OT Todd Wade (ankle) and TE Jason Goode (turf toe), are out of the team's third preseason game. HC Jim Zorn said it is unlikely rookie WR Malcolm Kelly (http://www.footballguys.com/KellMa01-1.php) (knee) will play. Kelly practiced in a limited role this week, and has been out virtually all of camp. "He didn't quite give me the full speed I need to see," Zorn said. Zorn was asked about the stalled development of rookies Kelly and WR Devin Thomas (http://www.footballguys.com/ThomDe02-1.php), and again pulled no punches about how far behind they are. Asked how much the Redskins could expect of the duo in the first part of the season, Zorn replied: "Realistically, not much. I can't say they're not going to produce at some point this season. They have to really step up to be able to start even getting the right to be on the field with the other three or four receivers that we're going to put out there."

Zorn is basically saying what everyone thinks but is too afraid to say outloud. We all look for the next Randy Moss, and odds are better than great that he isn't there, so better to let someone else in your league snatch up these guys earlier than they should go. That said...the Washington receivers are in a pretty decent situation to be able to take over and become productive.

This can't be the first piece of news for the Skins since August of '08, can it?


Ryan O'Halloran, of The Washington Times, reports Washington Redskins QB Jason Campbell (http://www.footballguys.com/CampJa00-1.php) said he doesn't plan to hold a grudge against the team's brass for trying to land QBs Jay Cutler (http://www.footballguys.com/CutlJa00-1.php) and Mark Sanchez (http://www.footballguys.com/SancMa00-1.php). He plans to take part in the team's upcoming minicamp. 'I'm ready to move forward and have one of my best years,' said Campbell, who is in the final year of his contract. He noted nothing was set in stone on what he would have done should the Redskins have landed another high-profile quarterback.

Good for Campbell for not whining and complaining, but Campbell better step up and play like Cutler or he won't be finding himself in a Washington jersey for much longer.

Free-agent RB Shaun Alexander (http://www.footballguys.com/AlexSh00-1.php) (Redskins) said during a radio interview with KNBR in San Francisco that he would like to return to play for the Washington Redskins this season but is unsure if the opportunity will come. "I don't know. My agents are talking. I would love to," Alexander said. "I'm training with my new trainers up in New Jersey like I'm going to be their (Redskins) guy and come play with them. Of course they have Clinton (Portis) and Ladell (Betts) and they've brought in a couple of guys. For me its like they know what I can do so they're going to check to see what their guys can do and then after that we'll make a decision."

Well, I hopped off the Shaun Alexander bandwagon a looooong time ago. I actually was never on it, so I guess I should say I have been moved further away from it, but... if he comes back, he could be a solid RB3 or RB4 for depth/off weeks/injuries.

Would the Redskins take a chance on Michael Vick? Don't rule it out. Owner Daniel Snyder loves the big splash and might be willing to gamble on Vick, who grew up in nearby Newport News, Va. There's no question that the Redskins would like an upgrade at quarterback with Jason Campbell (http://www.footballguys.com/CampJa00-1.php) entering the final year of his deal, and they likely would be willing to gamble on players with questionable character, given the $54 million deal they gave to CB DeAngelo Hall.

Outside of Al Davis and the Raiders, this is a move that I can see happening. Number of reasons. Vick is close to home playing in Washington. Snyder is a risk taker. The Skins need an upgrade at QB. DeAngelo Hall is pretty close friends with Michael Vick. Sure it is still speculation, but if the speculation is coming from sources like PFW, it's pretty big. And yes, most of all we must wait until we see what Goodell does first before we know where Vick ends up.

The Associated Press reports Washington Redskins head coach Jim Zorn said the team is not interested in signing unrestricted free-agent QB Michael Vick at this juncture.

Hahaha.... at this juncture. Well, until Vick ends up somewhere, every day is going to be something new. The Redskins could be a spot for Vick to end up since their QBing is in question. I think we may actually see a solid Campbell year and probably the last with him as a Skin.

Eric Edholm, from Pro Football Weekly, reports the preseason will be a proving ground for third-string QB Colt Brennan, who has a chance to move up the pecking order at some point if he can prove to be consistent and controlled when he gets what is expected to be a good amount of action in the exhibition season. Already head coach Jim Zorn has noticed the difference between Brennan's rookie season and this year. "I think Colt has come a long way," Zorn said. "I think the way I get on him, he probably doesn't feel like he's come a long way, but I'm pushing him and he has come a long way."

...and enter Campbell's replacement next season. This is the first mention of Colt Brennan that we've seen in a while. If he keeps his game up, he should be able to beat out Todd Collins for the #2 spot and at this point, with Campbell in a contract year, and still word circulating that he won't be back in Washington, you could be seeing Brennan as the #1 in Washington next year.

Who says that each kick in a kicker's career isn't important??? Miss one and you could be replaced by a UFL guy...



ASHBURN, Va. (AP)—The chip-shot miss against the New Orleans Saints (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/nor/;_ylt=AmcxPbwz1XJ2ymZeONgenqUdsLYF) has cost Washington Redskins (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/was/;_ylt=Alq3s_Z2jlREKdnS2M3SIDIdsLYF) kicker Shaun Suisham (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/7527/;_ylt=AmY4XLjpkub8_17BShwxMPodsLYF)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/7527/news;_ylt=AjN2H1.qoW3XB6BWHN_QrO4dsLYF) (SWEES-uhm) his job.
Suisham was cut Tuesday by the Redskins, who replaced him with Graham Gano (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9526/;_ylt=AvBksj5z276y1ZOYJIM29VQdsLYF)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9526/news;_ylt=Amq.Tu76qvPekS1hcO5XxQcdsLYF) (guh-NOH) from the United Football League.

Suisham made his first 13 field goal attempts this year, but he had vital misses from 39 and 50 yards against Dallas three games ago and was wide right Sunday on a 23-yarder that would have sealed a victory against the unbeaten Saints. New Orleans rallied to win 33-30 in overtime.
Gano kicked the winning field goal in overtime for the Las Vegas Locomotives in the first UFL title game last month. He is from Florida State and spent training camp with the Baltimore Ravens (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/bal/;_ylt=AicMfg9akupIJ.R4_EqohawdsLYF).

I can't speak for everyone but I always considered short kicks to all be very important (espicially late ones like that) because theres so little data to really use to judge a kicker. So when they miss one that any NFL kicker should make, I always think "Man he'll be lucky to have his job last week." Too little is expected out of kickers to miss a 23 yarder to beat the unbeaten Saints and expect to keep your job. Its just inexcusable and he deserved to be replaced.

04-04-2010, 09:50 PM
So... McNabb is now a 'skin! Hahaha... Gotta love it. Here's the thing now.


The trade is the boldest move to date for new Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. Shanahan already has signed free-agent Rex Grossman as a backup and is continuing to actively scout the top quarterbacks available in the draft, when the Redskins will have the No. 4 overall pick. All while Jason Campbell the 3 1/2 year starter for Washington is still int he fold.

1) Campbell will be gone.
2) I would even put McNabb over Rex "I'm a piece of shit" Grossman... Oh wait, here comes all the bashing, saying how good Grossman is too. Yeah, and so is Kyle Boller. :rolleyes:
3) I wouldn't be shocked if Washington took a QB in the draft. Just not with the #4 pick.

Also... we have a couple of scenarios.

1) I would love for the Eagles to get booted from the playoffs by Washington. Imagine that. Imagine the uproar in Philly if that happened.

2) What if Kolb takes the Eagles to the playoffs. Oh no... More Philly uproar saying that the Eagles should have done this years ago.

3) ...and this is my favorite scenario. What if somehow by chance, Vick takes the Eagles to the playoffs and does something?? Oh shit... The bitches who whined and complained and bitched and moaned about the Eagles signing him would all of the sudden be licking his balls. Vick is determined to be a number 1, whether it was in Philly or moving elsewhere. With McNabb being moved, Vick likely stays now. He will compete in camp.

Good for Washington though... ...and good for Philly. Good for Kolb.

Yeah trading him to a divisional rival was the last place that I though he'd end up.

Not really sure it is "great" for Washington, but good for Washington, I'll settle in to. Personally, what I see here. McNabb steps in, presumably takes over the #1 spot as I can't see Rex Grossman winning that job and I still have to firmly believe that Campbell's days as a Redskin are numbered. I thought last season that I thought would happen this year. So McNabb starts...and finds himself in a familiar spot that he was in most of his Eagles career. No real receiving threat to help him out. Yeah, he has Santana Moss. Yeah, he has Chris Cooley. That's his outlets. Unless it is believed that he can turn Thomas and Kelly into something, the receiving game is still hurting. I don't see Portis catching a million balls like Westbrook did. Speaking of Portis... The LJ signing, the Parker signing... Clearly Washington wants to do something!

eff1ngham
04-05-2010, 09:22 AM
There were plenty of seasons where McNabb didn't have any better receiving threats than he has now, and he managed to do pretty well. Plus he's got Shannanahans there as his coach. He should do pretty well, certainly makes Washington a playoff contender now

Anyone know why the Skins would extend McNabb for that kind of money??

Redskins agreed to terms with QB Donovan McNabb on a five-year, $78 million extension through 2015.
The Skins got serious, giving McNabb a whopping $40M guaranteed with the potential to earn $10M more in incentives. It'll be a featured story on Monday Night Football, with the news strategically breaking hours before game time. It's still a pretty big shocker, and not just because McNabb was yanked for a two-minute drill two weeks ago. The 34-year-old is on pace for his fewest TD passes since 1999, has more picks than scores, and so far has posted his lowest completion rate since 2006 while allegedly being slow to pick up Mike Shanahan's offense. It's not just odd timing. McNabb hasn't earned it. Nov. 15 - 3:23 pm et

No, you are wrong. "They" who benched him as in Mike Shanahan has everything to do with extending his contract. Mike Shanahan only agreed to become the coach if he became the VP of Football Operations (GM powers). He was granted those, so he has does have a say in every football move made by the team.

That's exactly what makes this move so strange. I still can't figure it out. Not because McNabb isn't good, but because it seems as if Shanahan and him are on different pages.

Ah, similar to Childress' contract you mean?

I don't understand why any coach would ever have that type of power. Its just way too much of an emotional job.

I think only Beli from the Pats has a similar contract to where they are the GM and coach. I could be forgetting about someone, but I don't think Childress is in charge of all football moves. (although it seems that way).

I don't like it either. I'd rather the coach bring in his own GM to do the work, then be the GM himself.

Yeah, Beli is one of the few ever who have really earned that grasp on his team and proven he can do right with it. Neither one of Childress or Shanahan should've been given that type of power.

Then yeah, I'm on board with being totally befuddled by this. A QB who you don't trust to run a 2 minute offense with the game on the line over Rex fucking Grossman should be as good as dogshit in your eyes. Shocking money to give to dogshit (Not that McNabb is shit, just that is what you tell a guy when you say you trust Rex Grossman more).

There was a lot of buzz that Shanahan was totally persuaded by his son to bench him. Maybe thats why he reached out to apologize so quickly with this contract.

Don't believe everything you hear about the McNabb deal.

This makes a lil more sense to me.....i feel better now

Donovan McNabb's new contract entitles him only a $3.5 million bonus, and the Redskins can cut him this offseason without owing him anything else.
The Redskins will decide whether to give McNabb a $10 million option bonus this offseason that would trigger the $78.5 million extension, or they can move on without him. He gets $25 million in additional guarantees only if he's injured. The contract now looks like more of a P.R. move than anything else after the debacle in Detroit where he was removed in favor of Rex Grossman for the two-minute drill. The 34-year-old McNabb has had a disappointing season, and it looks as if there's still a very good chance of him not returning to Washington next year. Nov. 16 - 11:00 am et

Clears the situation a bit more, but now if they hold onto him, we will be asking the same questions I suppose.

Nah, we won't, because that means his play to end the season entitled him to the extension, I'm sure.

Coach Mike Shanahan revealed Friday that he has informed Donovan McNabb that there is "no guarantee" McNabb will be a Redskin in 2011.
"It's obvious that Donovan McNabb will not be in Washington beyond this season," confirms ESPN's Adam Schefter. "The Washington Redskins' marriage with Donovan McNabb is over. It's over." Shanahan says he'll be "honest" with McNabb, which indicates that the Skins won't hold the 34-year-old quarterback hostage all offseason. Look for McNabb's $10 million option bonus to be declined before late February. He'll become a free agent. Dec. 17 - 1:08 pm et

The Cardinals could use him, but they weren't interested in him when he was last available.

The likely spots as of now are San Francisco, Minnesota, and Oakland. I am hearing a lot of emphasis on the 49ers at this point, but I am also hearing that management in Minny are considering McNabb because it is likely that Favre is really done this time.

Redskins are actually making some decent moves.

You think???


Dumping McNabb = A+++
Moving Haynesworth = A+ had to get something for him
got Jabar Gafney from Denver for Jeremy Jarmon
I guess these moves are decent! But, they need a QB. John Beck. Really?? Come on. I'll slot him as a back-up who can start a game or two, but to run your entire season, that's ugly... Especially with Rex Grossman as your back-up, and isn't Grossman a FA?? ...and Kellen Clemens. I might like Clemens over Beck, but Beck is the man in Skinsland.
