Redskins players rewarded for outstanding work ethic with parking spots

Candy, free time and parking spots. Though only two of those three things motivate children to get the job done, the other is apparently what motivates the NFL’s Washington Redskins. Head Coach Jay Gruden put into practice last offseason a system in which the hardest working players at training camp are rewarded with Redskins Park’s best parking spots. This offseason’s winners...

Redskins need new-look defense to come together at camp

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) When Ricky Jean Francois sits at home with fellow defensive end Corey Crawford, he's quick to quiz him on blitzes and situations. Jean Francois just wants everyone on the Washington Redskins' defense to be prepared.

Chief Zee and the era when Redskins fans owned the game day experience

The passing of Zema “Chief Zee” Williams is a big deal, but not just for the loss of arguably the Redskins’ staunchest fan. The Chief is from an age when fans were more expressive. You know, before the NFL corporationists wrested control of the game experience from fans. They snuffed out all the originality that made NFL game days a hella lot of fun. Hand-lettered signs. Banners...

Former Redskins teammate not a big fan of Robert Griffin III

To say that Robert Griffin III was a divisive figure during his four-year tenure with the Washington Redskins would be an understatement. Griffin III saw his career get off to a rock-solid start, as he led Washington to a division title as a rookie. Since suffering a late-season injury that year, the former Heisman winner has never been the same. Now, looking to rejuvenate his...

The Redskins spin doctors worked overtime on the Kirk Cousins no-contract news

The Redskins, by way of NFL.com, put the perfect spin on the non-deal with Kirk Cousins.  “It’s the market. The NFL’s a phenomenal, phenomenal entity, and the money’s incredible. But the way I look at it is I want Kirk in a long-term deal, no doubt about it, but also I’m not gonna put our franchise in a situation where we’re gonna lose three or four younger guys that...

Washington Redskins: what holds them back in 2016

The Washington Redskins go into the 2016-17 season with high expectations following a division title in 2015. I think the expectations are unwarranted for one reason only: the schedule. Kirk Cousins is emerging as a good starting quarterback and the addition of Josh Norman will help the defense sneak back towards mediocrity. That should lead to some improvement on the field, but...

Redskins could seek long-term alternatives to Cousins?

Kirk Cousins will play 2016 under a one year franchise tag, but his future with Washington beyond that is looking murky. Guest writing for The MMQB, ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio reported that Washington believes they can find another Cousins in a year or two for much less money, assuming Cousins looks for a big deal after 2016. Cousins wanted $44 million in guaranteed money...

Garafolo: Other Teams Can’t Believe What Redskins Are Doing

WASHINGTON — The Redskins and Kirk Cousins have decided not to reach a long-term agreement. As he tries to reprove himself in 2016, Washington will closely monitor his play. As will the rest of the league. “It’s a question of how much you want to protect yourself going forward,” NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, who reported Washington’s highest offer to Cousins — which came...

Redskins May Be Willing to Franchise Tag Cousins Again, Then Let Him Walk

WASHINGTON — So, we need to talk about Kirk Cousins. The latest non-development in the Redskins quarterback’s fight for a long-term deal concluded with the Redskins declining to give him a long-term deal before last Friday’s deadline to do so. This has brought about some compelling revelations which, perhaps, provide us a glimpse into how general manager Scot McCloughan, or...

Ricky Jean-Francois paid $6K for 'Back to the Future' kicks

Washington Redskins defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois did something special with his Nike Air Mags. Many people call them “Back to the Future” shoes, due to the fact that they look like the shoes featured in “Back to the Future” when Marty McFly went into the future and got to find out how fun hoverboards can be.

Kirk Cousins turns down $16 million per year contract offer

Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins reportedly turned down an offer for $16 million per season with $24 million in guarantees and will play on the franchise tag in 2016. He’s making a horrible decision, especially since his one good season doesn’t even really justify more than just a one-year, prove-it at way less than the franchise tag.
