Now that he has gotten the chance to work with his three top pass rusher, Brian Baker explains how he expects to get them to improve, and how they might be used.
Mike Jones answers readers' questions on the young offensive coordinator's role and the offense, plus Santana Moss, Trent Murphy and, of course, Tanard Jackson.
Murphy signed a four-year deal worth $4.21 million, including a signing bonus of roughly $1.44 million. The Redskins took the Stanford outside linebacker with the 47th overall pick of the draft.
Here’s a rundown of the positions where veterans could find themselves looking over their shoulder because of the addition draft picks or college free agents:
As Saturday morning’s practice session at the Redskins’ rookie minicamp wrapped up and players trickled off the field for their lunch breaks, outside linebackers coach Brian Baker pulled Trent Murphy aside for some one-on-one tutoring.
The Redskins this weekend got an up-close look at their eight draft picks, the 10 undrafted rookies they signed this week, and 38 tryout players.
The rookie from Stanford isn't a speed rusher, but has moves and can play the run. He could spell Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan, and play in Jim Haslett's creative nickel packages.
Murphy will likely provide immediate depth behind Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan.
