08:00 AM ET 05.25 | NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith dropped in on a well-attended Redskins workout Tuesday, where the players reportedly described Smith's talk as encouraging. Just as encouraging -- if not more encouraging -- for the team was the large turnout. Roughly 20 players gathered for the first such workout in late April, and the following day, 30 players came out. The number increased by 11 this time, and more players are expected Wednesday when the Redskins gather again. Among the players in attendance on Tuesday were veterans such as linebackers London Fletcher and Lorenzo Alexander, cornerback DeAngelo Hall, quarterbacks John Beck and Rex Grossman, center Casey Rabach, tight end Chris Cooley and 10 of the 12 rookies the team drafted in April.

At least some teams are practicing.

You knew the Skins would... They have a history of bonding during labor disputes.


Of course, if Rex was the QB, the DB's got plenty of work returning INT's.

The picks Rex throws in practice should count toward their regular season stats, they'd be tops in the league.

Wonderful news for them

Wonder if it will make a difference.

The bottom line of the story should be...


We have no Quarterback.

John Beck too. The media has been trying to sell fans what ice cream and all kinds of fun facts about him, but the bottome line is he's a 3rd string QB for a reason. He was said to have thrown no pass over 30 yards yesterday, that wasn't a duck.

You wonder if Santana Moss isn't thinking to himself "Damn..."?

They just don't want to face Shanny's conditioning test when the lockout ends.

He's a free agent. I don't think he even attended.

The title says "10 picks," and the photo is Rex Grossman. Fitting combination.

May 25, 2011  08:49 AM ET

Gross is now the face of the Redskins franchise on the T&R threads?

Yikes.

I enjoyed that, too.

What's even more frightening is that Snyder and Shanny have faith in him to lead the franchise.

The other face is some guy's butt. Sometimes, though, it's hard to tell them apart.

I would've loved to finish the article, but when I got to "quarterbacks John Beck and Rex Grossman" I had to go throw up. Was the rest of it good?

May 25, 2011  09:10 AM ET

and not one of them is a legitimate QB

I wonder if McNabb was at the workouts

Nope.

The interns first used the Tebow "Pull My Finger" pic they're so fond of, until some killjoy pointed out Tebow had nothing at all to do with the Redskins.
