The Redskins have set up the locker room to accomodate 110 players for this weekend's minicamp and have 84 under some sort of contract protection, including 6 rookies, McIntosh, and Rodgers.

That's alot of players to evaluate!

Sounds like he is an ILB, though he is another journeyman.

Well the St. Louis connection to Haslett is clear. While Draft is no big difference maker, he's the kind of guy who can fill a role, and as we all know the key to building a team is having enough of those guys filling good roles.

Our D coordinator knows what he's getting here, if he sticks on our roster it's nice to know that Haslett will deploy him well.

Real nice story. Nice to know we can still get a character guy or two, even with Gibbs gone.

That Ivory guy sounds like an ungrateful SOB doesn't he? He's damn lucky Draft was there.

I noticed that too. Whatever happened to the idea that an ILB should be taller?

The big question, are they inviting 110 players or are did they just set up accomodations for 110 players? I know right now we were at 83. I'm not sure if they are or are not counting the tendered players that have not signed. Who else would make up 110 players?
