Skins Reflect On Win, WR Pinkston and DT Askew Signed

Campbell gets a helping hand 

The Redskins won their preseason opener, but some units know they have lots of work to do before the regular season kickoff.  For example, the offensive line leaves alot to be desired after running backs total just 34 yards on 15 carries in the 14-6 victory over Tennessee in Nashville Saturday night.  Offensive line coach Joe Bugel says his players know to a man what they have to do to get better.  Washington plays the Pittsburgh Steelers in Landover this coming Saturday night. 

The team made a few roster moves on Monday.  They signed wide receiver Todd Pinkston and defensive tackle Matthias Askew.  Pinkston was taken in the second round of the 2000 draft by the Philadelphia Eagles.  He spent six seasons with the Eagles.  During his career, he has caught 184 balls for 2,816 yards and 14 touchdowns.  He was released by Philadelphia during training camp last year.  He then was signed and cut by the Minnesota Vikings in September 2006.  Askew was picked in fourth round of the 2004 draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.  Askew spent the 2004-05 seasons with the Bengals, playing in six games and earning five tackles. He was waived during the 2006 preseason.  The “Burgundy and Gold” also says wide receiver Kyle Brown and defensive tackle Vaka Manupuna have been cut.
