re: Shaun Alexander released

I did'nt think much about signing him. Doesn't really matter, we need his spot on the roster for some help on "D".

re: Shaun Alexander released

Tells me both Portis and Betts are good to go. If that is the case, he is completely expendable.

Exactly. He was never anything more than Portis insurance when Betts hurt his knee.

I'd say thanks to Shaun if he didn't anything. I'm just shrugging my shoulders really. Whatever.

Re: Shaun Alexander released

We need his roster spot on D right now and with Betts back there was really no reason to keep him.

Re: Shaun Alexander released

I think this is a temporary move before they make their big secret signing...

Marcus Mason for ... a sixth round pick.

Re: Shaun Alexander released

Shaun retires from the Redskins as their 234th leading rusher of all time (Washington Redskins Career Rushing Register - Pro-Football-Reference.com).

Behind such superstars as Honolulu Hughes, Mike Oliphant and Bobby DeFruiter.

Quick Trivia: For whom did we trade Mike Oliphant?

Wasn't it a 3 way trade that got us Earnest Byner and Gerald Riggs?

Besides Moss, the above statement applies, but remove the 'more' and put 'a', because right now we don't have a legit number two,. I am hoping Kelly proves to be that over the next three weeks.

DAMN! I thought it was part of a 12 player deal involving Tony Dorsett, and Adam "it's raining in cell block C" Jones.
