Three Redskins' contracts voided


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) Three members of the 2013 Redskins -- Josh Morgan, Brandon Meriweather and London Fletcher -- all had their contracts voided Friday, according to USA Today. The move will save the Redskins some cap space. 

Morgan had fallen out of favor in Washington and suffered with some of his worst numbers -- just 214 yards and no touchdowns despite playing 14 games. 

Meriweather had a tumultuous tenure with the Redskins, tallying 76 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and three interceptions over 14 games (two seasons; he hurt his knees in 2012). 

Fletcher, on the other hand, is a candidate for the Hall of Fame after closing out a 16-year career without missing a single game. He is retiring.

Redskins trying to add speed to pass rush


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has revealed some changes to the team's pass-rushing packages during the preseason.

In some third-down situations, Haslett has utilized six linebackers to take advantage of the talent at the position. Haslett has had linebackers Ryan Kerrigan and Darryl Tapp lined up in three-point stances, Brian Orakpo and Brandon Jenkins at their outside linebacker positions, and London Fletcher and Perry Riley as inside linebackers as always.

Haslett is carrying through on his vision to use all of his top pass rushers at the same time.

"Just something to try to get a little more speed on the field. We are just trying some things out right now," Haslett said, per The Washington Post. "Obviously, when we get into the regular season, who we’re playing, when we’re playing, how we’re playing them, the teams we’re playing will dictate what we can do. We ran it last week, wanted to see what it looked like and I thought those guys did a nice job with it."


Nick Barnett to get extensive work in Thursday's game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

In the third preseason game, Barnett played 16 snaps and made one tackle. It was his first action since offseason arthroscopic knee surgery.

“Nick is full of football," defensive coordinator Jim Haslett told the paper. "He’s got great football instincts. He knows where to go, he flies around. He [doesn’t] know what he’s doing yet, but he knows where the ball is. I thought this week he made good strides with what we’re going to do with this week with him in the scheme and good understanding. He just needs reps on the field and once he gets those he’s going to be fine. He’s a football player. He’s a good football player.”

Redskins to Fletcher: You in?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/5/2013) The official team website reports the Redskins want an answer from linebacker London Fletcher about whether or not he'll play this season before the start of free agency. "London’s the type of guy [where] you don’t even want to ask him a question because his mindset is he’s a warrior [for] how hard he’s played and what he’s done for this organization," Mike Shanahan said. "One thing you have to do, is you have to have a mindset that there’s no way you’re going to retire. If you’re thinking about retirement and you’re not really sure ... you’re probably already retired."

Fletcher contemplating future


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2013) Redskins linebacker London Fletcher told the Washington Post he was not sure if he would come back to play in 2013. "It's still a process," Fletcher said. "Understand I do this every year, probably the last four or five years. It's just when you get older in your career, you have to evaluate everything. Health is one thing. Can I still do it at the level that I want to do it at and play at? So this year is no different than those years in the past."
