We have a famed "Matthews" signed....

Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

^^ I'm with you on this - BIG TIME

we now seem to not be hit or miss as much as we were a few years ago .. most all the guys that have been added have been a lot closer to "making it" here than we're used to seeing

the competition for roster spots can only help EVERYONE - and these guys know they will get a shot and a decent look at playing here from the coaches
The Redskins need to have a plan for how to put a product on the field that will be consistently competitive and they need to stick with that plan - it's taken years to become as bad as we are and it will be years getting out of it

We apparently traded Kyle Wilburn, another C and OL to the Titans. So, this was really a trade.


Is that true?? Surprising, especially considering Bruce Matthews is the o-line coach there!

Wilburn was a good prospect competing with Tevita, another UDFA, for a roster spot. Matthews has a year experience and a good family tree :lol: but I have not been impressed by the Titans OL play. I have not seen film of him and there is where scouts and coaches earn their salary.

We are not looking at starters but potential depth.


We cut Wilborn. I know nothing about either player. I'll trust Shanny & Bruce on this.
