DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

Training Camp Practice Report For Aug. 5

As first reported by Matt Terl on his Twitter page, D.J. Hackett is at practice on Wednesday.

It appears he has been signed by the team, but no official word yet.

Hackett is a 5-year veteran who played for the Carolina Panthers last season after four years with the Seattle Seahawks. He played for current Redskins head coach Jim Zorn during his time in Seattle.

Hackett participated in Redskins mini-camp in early May, so he has a degree of familiarity with the offense.

Hackett has 118 career receptions for 1,575 yards and nine touchdowns. Last year, he was a reserve with Carolina and logged 13 catches for 181 yards.

Hackett was a fifth-round draft pick by the Seahawks in the 2004 NFL Draft.

Good signing. R. Williams is out for 4-6 weeks so Hackett takes his spot & is about as close a replacement you can find in terms of age, experience.

Another New Redskin

The Redskins have signed first-year defensive tackle Michael Marquardt, the team has announced.

Marquardt, 6-3 and 297 pounds, has had an NFL stint with the Cincinnati Bengals.

He played college football at Arizona State. In two years as a starter, he collected 48 tackles, nine tackles for a loss and 3.5 sacks.
we waived Roydell

Sounds like just another camp body.

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

This WR move should have little to no impact on the cap situation. Roydell and Hackett should offset one another.

The only scenario in which the cap is even a factor anymore is if we decide to bring in an experienced OT (ahem, Runyan).

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

Well, I guess we did give Hackett a call (Randle El will still be our primary punt returner)

Mixed feelings on this. I like Hackett when healthy, but that's not often. And I don't know what he offers as a special teamer

Schneed, any idea if we could afford someone like Levi Jones? I hear people calling out his name, but I get the feeling that he would demand more than we could afford.

On a similar note, if the team is bringing a lineman to camp (and not just a camp body like some of these signings) it has to be a good acquisition like Jones or Runyan. Otherwise there's not need to sulk about the team signing camp bodies like Hackett or that DT they just signed.

I really did not want to see Runyan in a Redskins uniform but at this point I don't know if we have a choice.

The alternative of counting on Heyer to get healthy, stay healthy and produce at the level we need for a whole season is much more scary to me.

Levi was scheduled to get 3Million this year before he got cut. Schneed had sad we had roughly 1-1.5 mill in cap, so we would have to do a maybe a 3yr deal with 1.5 million signing bonus and vet min base. I still think its doable, and would like to see it, but I don't see it happening.

Good call SS. As Ruhskins mentioned, these guys are basically camp bodies aren't they? I can't see us keeping them. Hackett knows some of the plays so he can run them against our D and the DT helps with some of the nicks on our d-line. Plus AH is liable to kill someone out there.

If he's still around mid to late in camp & Heyer is nicked & Williams is still struggling (see RI today), history would indicate that vinny would look to make a move a la the Kendall & JT trades.

At least Levi is a FA. Since Zorn has said that they're going w/the guys they have now at RT, the question is who would get cut to make room?How much time do they give MW? Do they look at him as being able to play in , say week 8? He can't go on the practice squad.
