defensive-line

Jeremy Towns had waited three-plus months for the call from an NFL team wanting to enlist his services, and when the call finally did come, the former Samford defensive end didn’t even have access to a phone.

Defensive end Jason Hatcher is nearing the end of his rehabilitation period and will soon join his teammates on the practice field, coach Jay Gruden said.

Defensive end, a starter last season, saw the team hand out big contracts to two other defensive ends this season, and has taken the message to heart.

Nose tackle Barry Cofield has practiced without limitation, and three days into training camp said that he feels great following his real football action since last season.

Chris Baker hopes his "swagger" and love of football will bolster the Redskins' pass rush and finally earn him a starting job in the NFL.

Defensive end Jason Hatcher said he remains unsure when the team will activate him from the physically unable to perform list and clear him for practice. Hatcher called patience the key to a full and effective recovery.

Former starter along the defensive line might have to be part of a rotation behind Jason Hatcher, Barry Cofield and Chris Baker.

The second-round pick from 2011 has had a checkered career so far. Likely nudged out of a starting spot, he can still be a key cog in the defensive-line rotation.

Who do you think should make the Redskins roster along the defensive line?

Still rehabbing from microfracture surgery, and although the Redskins added Jason Hatcher, defensive end Stephen Bowen is confident that he will make a full recovery and remain a starter.
