Agreed. People are acting as though we cut Albert Haynesworth or Orakpo.

Re: 2009 Practice squad

I think the last two spots were used for LB and WR...

Woodson Among 8 Signed to Practice Squad

Onrea Jones WR is the other WR. 5 teams in 1yr is worrysome but he is a local boy which is what DS and Cerrato like. Sounds like he had a good preason with the Cards. I'm not sure who they picked up for the 8th spot...I thought it might be LB Young.

Dude was an undrafted FA who didn't even start in college. Not saying it couldn't happen but right now I think it's a small possibility he even becomes a starter let alone a Pro Bowler.

We're pretty deep at DT. That's a good thing.
Yeah, i was making a joke, but i did think he played exceptionally well.

Re: 2009 Practice squad

I didn't see this anywhere so thought I would provide the info....

PRESS RELEASE*
For Immediate Release*
December 2, 2009*

REDSKINS SIGN WR KEITH ELOI TO PRACTICE SQUAD

LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed wide receiver Keith Eloi to their practice squad.

The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Eloi spent training camp with the Redskins before being released on Sept. 5, 2009. In four preseason contests with Washington, Eloi caught three passes for 38 yards.

Eloi played his last two collegiate seasons at Nebraska-Omaha after transferring from William Rainey Harper College, where he was a two-time junior college All-American. For his career at Nebraska-Omaha, Eloi registered 57 catches for 749 yards and five touchdowns. He also returned 25 kickoffs for 663 yards (26.5 avg.) and one touchdown.

Eloi, who attended Lely High School in Naples, Fla., was born Nov. 1, 1984.

Eloi will wear jersey No. 16.


My two favorites are back on the team; Mason and now Eloi.

Re: 2009 Practice squad

I think it's funny, I have not figured out how the system works?

Lose an OG hire a RB
Lose a OT hire a QB
Lose a RB hire a LT
Lose a TE hire a FB
Lose a RB hire a QB
Lose a DE hire a WR

The problem with the Skins is they view the PS as a place to keep the extra players instead of the place to keep and develope young talent.

I don't agree with that statement. Last year, when we had relatively few injuries, the skins did not initiate many practice squad changes. practice squad turnover was created almost entirely by other teams wanting to sign our PS players to the active roster. Conversely, this year, we've suffered a rash of injuries. When players get hurt and/or IRed, we're forced to adjust the practice squad accordingly. We've also elevated players from our PS to the active roster almost every year. I dont see how the skins utilize their practice squad as being remotely wrong or any different from that of any other team.

Re: 2009 Practice squad

Um, only last yr did anyone take from our practice squad and that was a Lineman I believe. There might have been a second to be taken but prior to that there have been little as far as other teams taking our players.

I understand, You lose a OL most teams would bump someone up from the practice squad and bring another OL in to fill the vacancy. We have not done that this yr. We lost an OL and a RB was brought in, Alridge. We lost the LT and Mason was brought in. We lose Portis and Levi Jones was brought in. We lose TE Cooley and they bring in a FB.

In other words they are not replacing position for position. Only 1 or 2 players came from the practice squad this yr. The rest came from off the team. So my statement is not as that far off....especially for this yr.

Re: 2009 Practice squad

Teams typically don't replace a position for a position when it comes to the practice squad. It's a developmental unit, it's not a backup for guys you lose to IR.
