Cap case starts today but decision will take time

Many Redskins fans have pointing towards today, May 10, for several weeks. There will be a hearing of the Redskins and Cowboys appeal of the salary cap penalties of 36 million and 10 million, respectively, handed down by the NFL in March.It doesnt look like there will be much going on today. According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, the two sides in the dispute will meet with arbitrator Stephen Burbank in Philadelphia but todays meeting will be small.So small, in fact, that Dan Snyder and Jerry Jones are not expected to be in attendance. It appears that the hearing today will be more procedural and that the two sides presenting their cases will come at a later date.The wheels of justice turn slowly. There will not be a resolution to this anytime soon. My advice would be to enjoy the spring weather, ponder the future of Chris Cooley and debate whether or not Josh LeRibeus will have an impact this year. A ruling will come sometime during the summer, probably in late June or July. Any decision that comes quickly, in fact, is likely to be bad news for the Redskins as it likely would be Burbank throwing the case out.

VIDEO: Josh Norman slyly exits dance circle at Redskins draft party

Josh Norman was at the Redskins' draft introduction on Saturday at FedEx Field when a dance circle, comprised mostly of Washington cheerleaders and Santana Moss, formed around him. 

Norman didn't seem all too into it, so thus was born a highly reusable reaction Vine, as captured by CSN photographer Mitch Tischler.

Enjoy, Internet.

Redskins draft a QB for the first time since 2012

Redskins draft a QB for the first time since 2012

For the first time since 2012 the Redskins have drafted a quarterback.

Washington took Nate Sudfeld out of Indiana in the sixth round (No. 187 overall). At 6-6, 234 he looks the part of an NFL quarterback coming off of the bus and he has a strong arm. However, when he starts to throw it is apparent that his technique and footwork need a lot of work. This is to be expected; he is available in the middle of the sixth round for a reason.

Sudfeld completed 60 percent of his passes in 2015 for 3,573 yards and 27 scores against seven interceptions. Those numbers are even more impressive when you consider that he did not have many weapons to work with with the Hoosiers.

He will become the Redskins’ developmental quarterback, and take a spot on the depth chart behind starter Kirk Cousins and veteran backup Colt McCoy.

Redskins trade for another 2017 pick

Redskins trade for another 2017 pick

Redskins GM Scot McCloughan clearly intends to own the 2017 NFL draft, at least the latter stages of it.

For the second time today and for the third time since the draft started on Wednesday, the Redskins have made a deal that got them a 2017 draft pick.

The latest one was a deal with the New York Jets. With the Redskins on the clock with the 21st pick of the fifth round (No. 158 overall) the Jets gave them their 2017 fourth-round pick in exchange for that fifth rounder.

After getting 2017 picks on Thursday and today, the Redskins now have two picks in the fourth round next year and two in the sixth. They also now have a the Saints’ fifth-round pick after dealing their own pick in that round to the 49ers for tight end Derek Carrier.

And the Redskins now have three more picks in this year’s draft, one in the sixth and two in the seventh. If they use those picks they will have a total of seven, having already taken four players.
