Redskins Re-Sign OLB Rob Jackson

The Redskins have re-signed outside linebacker Rob Jackson, Matt Brooks of the Washington Post reports. The seventh-year pro has spent all of his career with the Redskins, playing primarily as Brian Orakpo’s backup. Jackson last season recorded 19 tackles, two sacks and an interception. He had hoped to go somewhere that afford him the opportunity […]

Redskins sign DE/LB Darryl Tapp to bolster depth

The Redskins signed free agent defensive end/linebacker Darryl Tapp late last week. Tapp was originally selected in the second round (63rd overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks, and was later traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010.

When the decision was made to bench McNabb for the rest […]

A Win for Next Year

In a time where players are clamoring to shorten the amount of preseason games (and money- grubbing owners itching to turn those preseason games into regular season games), the Redskins last three games of the 2010 season (last week’s loss against Dallas, this week’s win over Jacksonville, and next week’s finale against the Giants) are […]

7th Round Pick Jackson and Skins Agree on Deal

The Redskins have now signed 4 of their top 10 draft picks, as the Washington Post is reporting that the team signed rookie defensive end Rob Jackson, their seventh round draft pick out of Kansas State, to a deal today. Financial terms were not immediately available but Jackson is believed to have signed a standard […]
