6. Even IF he wins a spot and the locker room is ok with him, he's one bad decision away from being gone all over again.

I don't see Allen/Shanahan/Haslett taking that chance on what could be a team poised for a deep playoff run.
Haz just recently said they will welcome him back with open arms.

Totally agree. Rebuild with good character players.

All very true no doubt. But the cap penalty squeezed us with other options and he certainly isnt my first preference. I think he'd work out fine this year if he keeps in shape and keeps his mind focused on football. I dont see it as a huge risk. And plus what Matty said.

Good luck proving that lawsuit.

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

He's not concerned over the inconsistency that Royal was an offensive player and GWilliams, even if there were a bounty program, coached the defense?

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

The guy claims played some on the defense, which I would assume he means special teams. I don't remember royal ever playing in the actual defense.

First of all...who?

Secondly, he was hurt against the Vikings and played against us before recovered fully it seems. Also, we didn't end his career since he played in another game AFTER the game against us and then had ACL surgery. No case.


Quote:
Green was playing for the Giants when he first injured the knee Oct. 31, 2004 in a game against the Minnesota Vikings. He missed nearly a month then returned to play in three more games, including Dec. 5 against the Redskins. The lawsuit says Royal "intentionally lowered his helmet and dove into" Green's knees "at full speed." Green had to be helped off the field, and the lawsuit claims the alleged bounty program would have rewarded the hit as "either a 'knockout' or a 'cart off.'"

Even though Royal lined up as a tight end on the play, which happened in the third quarter, the lawsuit says he also played defense occasionally and therefore would have been coached by Williams.

Green played in one more game after the injury and later underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL. Green did play in one game with the Giants in 2005 but was cut at the end of the season. He tried to latch on with the Houston Texans in 2006 but was cut before the start of the regular season. He now lives in Miami.

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

Look at Royal's defensive stats...0 tackles in 2004. In fact, he didn't record a tackle until 2008 with the Bills and that could have been after a change of possession on a fumble or INT.

There was a play in that game where the Redskins were flagged 15 yards after a Portis run because of an illegal crack back by Royal. I'm guessing that's the play being referred to

So he's claiming Gregg Williams called that play, or slipped Royal a twenty as he went onto the field?
