Redskins Add Two Free Agents
Redskins Add Two Free Agents
Gamble & Smith join DC

The Washington Redskins added two valuable free agents this off-season when they secured former Colts offensive guard Walt Gamble and former Steelers cornerback Antonio Smith to multi year deals. The signings didn't come at no expense, with the Redskins farewelling long serving defensive tackle Vaughn Martin who spent nine seasons in D.C. recording fifty sacks.

Walt Gamble was drafted thirty-fifth overall in the 2015 draft by the Indianapolis Colts. He started all four seasons and quickly progressed into a quality lineman. Gamble will add much needed talent on the interior of the Redskins line.

Antonio Smith was drafted sixty-fourth overall in the same draft, by the Chicago Bears. He spent two seasons in Chicago until he was traded to Pittsburgh where he has spent the past two years. A talented corner who has also shown he is ready to be a starter in this league. He also has great hands which have seen him record fourteen interceptions and he will be looking to add more as a member of the Redskins.

By securing Smith, the Redskins have agreed to a trade with the Carolina Panthers. Which sees fan favourite, cornerback Alan Morris moving to the Panthers. Drafted eleventh overall in the 2011 draft, Morris has been a cornerstone of the Redskins defence for the better half of a decade. He has recorded twenty-seven career interceptions and registered six touchdowns. In exchange for Morris, Washington will receive the sixty-second overall pick in the upcoming draft.

Redskins Take Early Lead
Redskins Take Early Lead in NFC East
2-0 Heading into the Bye



The Washington Redskins have had a tough start to the season after losing quarterback Chad Henne to a torn pectoral early in the pre-season for ten weeks. The team decided to ship away a first round pick to secure former Cowboy Ricky Stanzi to come in and lead the team in Henne's absence. So far, so good as the Redskins held of the Oakland Raiders 23-17 and the Dallas Cowboys 30-23 in front of a enthusiastic home crowd. But the injuries are counting when middle linebacker Donald Butler also tore his pectoral against the Cowboys which will sideline him for close to two months.

The Redskins will enjoy the early bye this week which will give their injured stars a week of extra recovery without missing a game. A big emergence in the team is third year receiver Cordarrelle Patterson who has been the go to guy with 17 catches for 303 yards and two touchdowns already this season, he leads the league in receiving yards. Washington is the only 2-0 team in the NFC East. The Dallas Cowboys are 1-1 after a week one victory over the New York Giants who are winless after going down at home to the Oakland Raiders. The Philadelphia Eagles are also 1-1 after a week one loss to the Denver Broncos and a win against the lowly Kansas City Chiefs in week two.

"The injury has been a big blow as the team has been building momentum over the past couple of years and we want to take that next step this year. But Ricky [Stanzi] has done a incredible job, he came in on short notice and has really fit into the squad and has the offence firing. Recovery is going well and I expect to be back for our week seven clash against the Eagles in Phildelphia." Redskins QB Chad Henne.[/img]

Washington Prepared for 2016
Washington Prepared for 2016 Season
Defending the NFC East Title



The Washington Redskins finished the 2015 with a 10-6 record and the NFC East title for the second year running. The 'Skins won five of their last six to leave their rivals behind with the rest of the division unable to finish with a winning record. The team overcame tough losses and even suspensions from the league to earn a playoff appearance which saw them host the Arizona Cardinals. Unfortunately they would fall 21-13 to a strong Cardinals side and the campaign was over. The Redskins were able to go 5-1 in the division with the only loss coming to the Giants in week one when they fell short by a point.

The off-season came and the Redskins were active in building their squad for 2016. The team resigned veteran line backer Donald Butler to a lucrative seven year deal which will surely see him end his career in Washington. The first trade was with the New Orleans Saints where the team agreed to send their fifth round pick in exchange for 352lbs defensive tackle Kwame Geathers who will see some game time rotating in as the number three defensive tackle this season. Geathers was a former fourth round pick who is entering his second season in the GZL. The team opted to let veteran tackle Vernon Carey go after one season, the team filled the gap by trading for veteran tackle Jared Gaither from Baltimore. The thirty year old is a exceptional blocker and will provide great protection from the right side. The team decided to send long time safety LaRon Landry to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a future pick, the team needed to free cap space and Landry's trade helped ease pressure. The last deal was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when both kicker Shayne Graham and defensive tackle Terrell McClain were also traded for cap reasons in exchange for future draft picks.

Noteable cuts were Andre Johnson, Reggie Bush, Larry English and Siona Fua. Fading skills and unattractive contracts were the reasons behind the players releases. The Washington Redskins opened up the cheque book and made big offers to numerous free agents. New York Giants Safety Carlos Brown was the first to sign with the team on a five year deal. Sources close to Brown state the assurance of starting on a division leading team was to much to pass along with the inflated contract. Cornerback Zackary Bowman signed soon after, leaving Chicago where he played his six seasons and comes off a eleven interception Pro Bowl season. The thirty-one year old signed a one year deal and brings veteran leadership and deadly hands which will ease the loss of DeAngelo Hall. Another big offer was made to Tampa Bay kicker Rhys Lloyd and he soon signed, joining the team to replace long time kicker Shayne Graham who's kicking power has diminished over the years. Lloyd brings a strong and accurate leg which will give Washington more opportunities of scoring. The next two players to sign were a couple of Phildelphia Eagles. Big defensive tackle Phil Taylor and tight end D.J. Williams leave Philly and join a rival which will surely cause some tension between the teams in their upcoming clashes. Taylor is a former first round pick who has yet to live up to his draft position as he now joins his third team in six years. Williams is a moderately agile receiver with exceptional hands who will give Henne a sure target. The final player to sign was former Cleveland punter Gregory Kelly, who signed a five year deal and will become the Redskins punter right away.

Draft day arrived and the Redskins held valuable picks to add to the roster. However with the free agent splurge cap room was tight and decisions had to be made. The Redskins were on the clock with the twenty-second overall pick but opted to trade out, the Houston Texans agreeing to send their future first along with two mid third round picks. The first rookie to join the team was wide out James Mayes, at only 5'10" and 196lbs Mayes offers lightning agility and great hands for a youngster. He is expected to train hard on his speed over the off-season to help compliment the other bigger body receivers already on the squad. The team needed a starting safety and added Chester Truman who is 6'0" and 206lbs but he is also a very quick and mobile defender who will be able to close the gap. He is expected to start at strong safety. The next rookie was line backer Larry Ulrich who is a big strong enforcer who will see time behind Donald Butler.

Washington still has a couple of holes to fill until the squad is complete but the feeling around the facility is positive. The team is building a winning culture and they expect nothing less than a division championship. The rivals have all had strong off-seasons and will be as competitive as ever but the Redskins know they can get the best of them. A young receiving corp will need to play beyond its experience, Chris Johnson will have to make plays even after losing a step, the expensive free agents will need to perform to make the Redskins lucrative deals worthwhile. The Washington Redskins are ready for 2016 and are eager to take the next step towards Super Bowl glory.

Redskins Dive Bomb into Free Agency
Redskins Dive Bomb into Free Agency
Cashed up Free Agents Headed to D.C.



Following a 10-6 season and the teams second NFC East Championship in a row the Redskins were eliminated by a surging Arizona Cardinals team in week one of the playoffs. Management hasn't wasted time in shaping the team for 2016 to take the next step towards a championship. Washington made nine big offers to Free agents across the GZL, three of who played within the division last season.

New York Giants Safety Carlos Brown was the first to sign with the team on a five year deal. Sources close to Brown state the assurance of starting on a division leading team was to much to pass along with the inflated contract. Cornerback Zackary Bowman signed soon after, leaving Chicago where he played his six seasons and comes off a eleven interception Pro Bowl season. The thirty-one year old signed a one year deal and brings veteran leadership and deadly hands which will ease the loss of DeAngelo Hall. Another big offer was made to Tampa Bay kicker Rhys Lloyd and he soon signed, joining the team to replace long time kicker Shayne Graham who's kicking power has diminished over the years. Lloyd brings a strong and accurate leg which will give Washington more opportunities of scoring. The next two players to sign were a couple of Phildelphia Eagles.

Taylor is a former first round pick who has yet to live up to his draft position as he now joins his third team in six years. Williams is a moderately agile receiver with exceptional hands who will give Henne a sure target.

The Redskins also approached Steelers cornerback Samuel Price and Broncos running back Keith Payne but the contracts were matched by their current teams. The team is still waiting for confirmation from the Cleveland Browns and St. Louis Rams regarding punter Gregory Kelly and safety Patrick Chung.

Gradkowski Leads Redskins
Redskins Win Without Henne
Veteran Gradkowski Helps Redskins Eliminate Giants



The Washington Redskins have had a troubled week after Chad Henne was handed a three match ban following a GZL investigation which was rumoured to have been tipped off by the New York Giants. It left the Redskins with only veteran quarterback Bruce Gradkowski on the roster who showed last season he could get the team wins and he would show that again. The Redskins hosted the New York Giants which shaped as a massive encounter between the bitter rivals, a win by the Redskins would eliminate the Giants but if they were unsuccesful would close the gap to a game with two weeks to go. But the Redskins came out and made it known to the Giants they weren't going to back down even without their quarterback. Running back Chris Johnson shouldered most of the work as he carried the ball 25 times for a massive 222 yards and two touchdowns.

"A massive performance by the team, a week of distractions, missing Chad [Henne] and facing our biggest rival and defending champions in a game which could very well decide the division winners and we came out and punched the ball down their throats. They are a team at full strength but watching the game you would think they were missing their starters, we contained Eli [Manning] and gave their running back absoloutely no room to move. We won the turnover battle again and we ambushed them, we really did. We expect nothing but important and tough clashes against the Giants and this week was no different, I think a lot of players still had last years NFC Championship game on their mind so to knock them out of the race this year is a small victory for us." Redskins HC John Fox.

The Redskins will now face their third rival on the trot when they come up against the 7-7 Dallas Cowboys. Speculation surrounds Washington as rumours of resting players has been talked about, with home field advantage out of reach it would be smart to give the players a rest before the playoffs begin.
