Ryan Grant set to sign in Washington

Free agent running back, Ryan Grant, will be joining the Washington Redskins.  The 30-year old free agent and former Green Bay Packer will be working as the backup to rookie Alfred Morris.  With Roy Helu out with a foot injury and Evan Royster suffering from a patella injury the Redskins can use the veteran for much needed depth.

Players to Drop back to Free Agency

With so many Fantasy Football players losing their minds after one week, many will be considering adding free agents.  To do so means you must cut players on your team.  Here is our list of 11 players that can safely be cut to add a new stud player from the NFL pool of Free Agents.

PLAYER TEAM Report
Rashad Jennings JAX Jennings was limited in his duties week one because of an injury, oh yeah, and Maurice Jones-Drew is back and shows no affects from his hold out.  Let the man go.
Kendall Wright TEN Wright looked a bit out of sorts early in the Patriots game, but began picking up Regular Season speed over the course of the game.  I’m not sure I would release Wright just yet.  I can see him on the Add list in 2 or 3 weeks

Washington Redskins at New Orleans Saints Recap

A lot will be written about how great RG3 played in his career debut, and rightfully so, however Robert Griffin III did not win this game for the Redskins.  Griffin, who became the first rookie quarterback in NFL history (w. 10+ attempts) to finish a half with a perfect passer rating (158.3).  Lost in the news of the win on Sunday was the cost, Pierre Garcon left the game with a foot injury.  RG3 did look good completing 19 of his 26 attempts for 320 yards and 2 touch downs. 

Haynesworth to Pats for pocket change

The New England Patriots did it again; this time acquiring perennial pro-bowler and league leader in jerkness Albert Haynesworth. The Patriots and Bill Belichick have seemed to work wonders with head cases, but they don’t come any bigger than Haynesworth.

Haynesworth had issues playing in a 3-4 scheme with the Washington Redskins and New England runs a (you guessed it) 3-4 defense. Will Haynesworth be willing to play over center with the Pats, we will have to wait and see. The Wire’s prediction is that he will be an unstoppable force for the first few weeks and then in true face stomper fashion will pout, cry, whine, everything but play hard.

Good luck Bill, I think you’re going to need it.

Washingtons ground game?

Clinton Portis or Ryan Torain…? At the beginning of the season we all said, I wonder who the sucker who picks a Redskins running back. Some of us thought that Larry Johnson was going to be the great sleeper at running back… Turns out we were all wrong about everything.

Shannahan has the Skins blocking schemes improving almost play by play and the new stud standout for a Shanny O-line is a familiar face to Mike Shannahan. Ryan Torain came out of Arizona State with blazing speed, a bit undersized but the type of back the Broncos ran for 1,500 yards consistently. I don’t see Torain racking up 1K yards this year, but 75 yards and a touch may not be out of the question.
