The Washington Redskins remain interested in trying to acquire holdout wide receiver Joey Galloway from the Seattle Seahawks before the NFL trade deadline Tuesday but have become convinced there's little chance of completing such a deal, sources close to the situation said yesterday.
The Redskins have offered the Seahawks a first-round draft choice for Galloway and have been willing to add a third-round pick to their trade proposal, according to sources. But the Seahawks probably will wait until after the season to trade Galloway unless they're offered two first-round draft selections by Tuesday, sources said.
The Redskins have three first-round picks--theirs and those of the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints--in next April's college draft. Mike Holmgren, the Seahawks' coach and general manager, repeatedly has said that he doesn't intend to trade Galloway.
Jenkins Still Questionable
Tight end James Jenkins, who underwent knee surgery Oct. 4, did not practice yesterday and remains questionable for Sunday. Coach Norv Turner said he planned to evaluate Jenkins's progress Friday and again early Sunday. . . . Tight end Stephen Alexander (bruised back) is ready to play, Turner said. . . . Guard Tre Johnson (sprained knee ligament) practiced yesterday. "His knee is a little sore, but he moved around awfully well today," Turner said.
