Another DL and WR reportedly on Redskins' radar

Another DL and WR reportedly on Redskins' radar

Among the items on the Redskins’ to do list in free agency are to locate both help on the defensive line and at wide receiver.

Add one of each to pending free agents reported to be on their radar screen.

The D-lineman, per Eric Edholm of Yahoo Sports, is Terrell McClain, a 2011 third-round pick of Carolina’s.

In addition to the Panthers he has also played for the Texans, Patriots, and for the last three years with the Cowboys. Last year, he started 15 games and registered 2.5 sacks and forced two fumbles.

The 28-year-old is not one who is going to put up gaudy stats but he is a good disrupter and as a 3-4 end he would be a good replacement if they lose Chris Baker to free agency.

Raiders wide receiver Andre Holmes is also reported to be of interest to the Redskins.

Holmes would not be the top-line guy they would need to step in and replace Pierre Garçon and/or DeSean Jackson should they leave in free agency. But he would give them some experienced depth. Holmes came into the league with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2012 before spending the last four seasons with the Raiders.

Holmes’ best season came in 2014 when he started 13 games, caught 47 passes for 693 yards and four touchdowns. In the last two years combined, however, he started three games and caught just 28 passes for 164 yards and seven TD’s. At 6-5 he has the height the Redskins seem to be targeting in receivers.

Again, he’s not the answer by himself if the Redskins find themselves shorthanded at receiver but he could work as the fourth or fifth receiver and play some special teams.

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

The Pro Bowl may not count for anything other than an accolade on a player's resume, but it has delivered some memorable moments over the years. 

Maybe the best Pro Bowl play ever was when Sean Taylor leveled former Bills punter Brian Moorman when the AFC tried to run a fake in the 2006 Pro Bowl. 

Tress Way is representing the Redskins in the 2020 Pro Bowl and still has that play in the back of his mind. 

When asked whether he'd try to pull off a fake punt of his own on Sunday, Way said yes but under specific conditions. 

Minkah Fitzpatrick and Jamal Adams are the starting safeties for the AFC, so while both are great players and Adams is a hard-hitter in his own right, none of them are Taylor. 

So if you see the NFC pull off a fake punt and Tress Way quickly gets rid of the ball, you'll know why.

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

In the midst of the Pro Bowl being underway former Redskins’ defensive back DeAngelo Hall took a trip down memory lane. 

During Good Morning Football this week, the 2011 Pro Bowl MVP DeAngelo Hall said his favorite memory from the Pro Bowl wasn't exactly anything that happened on the football field.

You would think he would mention his impressive performance which included six tackles, an interception and a fumble returned for a touchdown. 

But no. His highlight of the day was winning a truck for his MVP performance. 

“I told my buddies going into it I wanted to buy a truck so I said hey, if I win this MVP I don't need to buy a truck so I called the shot ladies and gentlemen I really did," he said. 

It must have been a really special prize because to this day, he said, he still owns the truck.
