It's time for our FO to start cutting individuals that test positive. This has become a trend for this team and we rank near the top in players suspended for failed tests.

The signing of Merling and Brace is looking really good now.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

I think we should trade our 2nd & 3rd picks next year for Jason Taylor.

Sorry ... having a Vinny redux moment.

Chill ... all will be well. We are just giving the other teams a headstart so our SB Championship run looks more impressive.

Been wondering the same for a long time. He really showed some impressive skills. If there's even a chance of it, he should start practicing inside now and learn from Fletcher.

At least we have options. But it's still disappointing.

Cofield at DE could be interesting if one of the big guys can handle NT. At least we know to prepare for it.

Don't go all vinny on us yet. We have Golston, Merling and Cofield who could move to DE on some plays. Also we could bring Worthington back if we want. It is disappointing that Jenkins got suspended but it won't cost us the season.

We are not only team with this "trend" in NFL, Seattle comes to the mind.

Agreed. We have depth along the dine. Baker can play nose and Cofield can slide out to play DE.

I thought te same thing. Now with AC possibly out for the year then we could have afforded Lo if we had cut Carriker.

Stunned that we are losing Jenkins as well, and if it is for something stupid like painkillers then that's pretty dumb. RobJax is being suspended for his use of painkillers. These guys can get a script for those things without any problem.

Could we see both Baker and Nield kept at the beginning of the year with the plan of moving our best NT to DE in Cofield for the first four games?

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

I don't see the hits to AC, Robinson and Jenkins as big deals. The FO had to of know AC was a long shot to return. He's long in the tooth and it was a flat nasty injury. Robinson was nowhere near ready to backup Fletcher, let alone start. He showed almost nothing last year and already had bad injury history. Our FO may well have written him off already. We'll bring in a solid FA to backup Fletch this season and look to a long term solution after this season, though I think Rob Jackson is still interesting to look at there.
Jenkins is a disappointment but we have options with Cofield moving over and Baker or the other big guy playing NT those first four games. Or Jenkins may even get to appeal, who knows.

Separately, I don't know why teams don't have a standing rule that no one is to take a supplement without running it past a Redskins trainer first. I know they're ostensibly grownups, but this kind of thing should be preventable.
(Bold mine) Agree 100%. Where the trainer investigates the drug to make sure the ingredients are kosher, then asks a league official to make sure that drug is OK.

Jenkins, Jordan Black last season, are cases like these really a case of innocent "over the counter" or even "off the shelf" medicines tripping the NFLs drug tests? Or is that more likely an excuse a player uses when caught knowingly taking something against NFL rules?

From what I read, Jordan Black was actually a scapegoat for NFL office - he had medical reasons and has been using the medicine for a while.
