Might be more help coming for Redskins on defensive line, per report

Might be more help coming for Redskins on defensive line, per report

The Redskins are off to a strong start early in free agency, and a report shows the team is hosting Bennie Logan, who could further boost the team's defensive line. 

Washington has started to rebuild its defensive line with the signings of Terrell McClain and Stacy McGee, of the Cowboys and Raiders respectively. While both players can help the Redskins depth, neither has shown to be a high-impact player, or the true nose tackle the defense has lacked since moving to the 3-4 scheme in 2010.

Well, with Logan, that could change. 

A 27-year-old that played college ball at LSU, Logan played his best for the Eagles as a nose in the 3-4 scheme. In 51 starts in four years, Logan has made 5.5 sacks and 167 tackles. Remember, nose tackles tend not to make significant statistical contributions, but can change a defense by occupying offensive linemen. 

Reports of the Redskins interest in Logan dates back to January, prior to the dismissal of former general manager Scot McCloughan. After the signings of McGee, McClain, D.J. Swearinger and Terrelle Pryor, adding Logan to the team would address a number of needs in the early stages of free agency.

Former Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens joins Giants staff

Former Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens joins Giants staff

What a difference a year makes for Freddie Kitchens.

After a tumultuous season in his first year as the Browns head coach in 2019, Kitchens was fired at the end of the season. On Monday, reports surfaced that Kitchens would be joining new Giants head coach Joe Judge's staff in New York.

According to The Athletic's Bruce Feldman, Kitchens is expected to be hired as the Giants tight ends coach.

From head coach to position coach in just a month's time, that's quite the fall off for Kitchens.

Kitchens and Judge had previously worked together at Mississippi State in 2005. Kitchens served as the Bulldogs' running backs coach, while Judge was just starting his coaching career as a graduate assistant.

The two have not crossed paths since, but obviously maintained a relationship strong enough for Judge to bring the former head coach onto his staff.

Dwayne Haskins reflects on bond with Kobe Bryant from pre-draft workouts

Dwayne Haskins reflects on bond with Kobe Bryant from pre-draft workouts

Terrible news hit America on Sunday when word came out that basketball legend Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash along with his daughter and seven others. 

A tragic event for a man and a player that made an impact far beyond basketball. Bryant was known for many things, but more than any, it might have been his competitive spirit. A five-time NBA champion and an 18-time All-Star, Bryant's play was defined by a fluid game and an unstoppable spirit. 

For Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins, he got to see some of Bryant's spirit up close. Last year, before the NFL Draft, Haskins trained at Bryant's gym in Los Angeles, and their encounters made an impression on the signal-caller. 

"He's definitely a guy that brings a lot to the table as far as how he trains, how he prepares and what he expects out of his teammates. Very, very demanding," Haskins said of Bryant. "I want to be able to have that other tool, being able to have that edge that Kobe had. Of course, I play like that, but I'd be able to lead like that. That's why I studied Kobe."

Haskins is one of many young athletes that grew up watching Bryant, and for plenty, idolizing Bryant. 

After the news broke Sunday, Haskins reacted on Twitter.

Haskins said it well: RIP to a legend. Gone too soon.
