Quick hits: DE battle over before it starts?

Some quick hits to start off you Tuesday morning:Were going to have our camp preview on the defensive line and linebackers coming later today. I will say right now, though, that Im not sure that a battle for the starting right defensive end job, something Ive been previewing here much of the offseason, will take place. I think that Adam Carriker will start and Jarvis Jenkins will come off of the bench. That isnt necessarily because Carriker is better than Jenkins. I just think that they believe they will be able to take advantage of Jenkins versatility better if hes not starting.So Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com picked a score every NFL game for the coming season and he came up with a 3-13 record for the Redskins. As my friend @BurgundyBlog pointed out, Prisco has the Redskins scoring no more than 21 points in any game. They managed over 21 seven times in 2011. While rookie quarterbacks can be inconsistent, its difficult to see their offensive productivity plummeting with Robert Griffin III taking over for the 2011 RexBeck disaster.Training camp starts the day after tomorrow but if you plan on coming out be advised that they will not be wearing pads until Saturday. You can print out your training camp pass right here.In conjunction with the start of camp Ill be doing a chat on Thursday from 1-2 p.m. We can talk O-line, try to solve the secondary problems and maybe, just maybe, we can talk about that RG3 guy. Check back here for details.Days until: Training camp 2; preseason opener @ Bills 16; RG3 vs. Luck @FedEx Field 32; final cuts 39; Redskins @ Saints 47; home opener vs. Bengals 61

3 of 4 Redskins named to Pro Bowl won't attend

3 of 4 Redskins named to Pro Bowl won't attend

Ryan Kerrigan, Jordan Reed and Brandon Scherff will skip next week's Pro Bowl in Orlando a team spokesman confirmed to CSN. All three players dealt with injuries late in the season, most notably Reed, and playing in the exhibition game is not in the cards. Trent Williams, however, is still slated to play in the game. 

Reed suffered a separated shoulder on Thanksgiving playing against the Dallas Cowboys. For the rest of the season, Reed played through significant pain and his production dipped.

Kerrigan played much of the season with an injured elbow and hurt his finger in the final game against the Giants. Scherff played with ankle pain and was listed on the injury report much of the season's final four games.

For Reed and Scherff, this year marked their first Pro Bowl. The recognition was deserved for both players, and shows that the guard and tight end are gaining national spotlight for their play.

Kerrigan played in the Pro Bowl following the 2012 season. He finished this year with 11 sacks, 2.5 short os his career high 13.5 in 2014.

Mic picks up Packers trainer telling Cowboys' Tony Romo 'you deserve better'

Mic picks up Packers trainer telling Cowboys' Tony Romo 'you deserve better'

When longtime Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo lost his starting job to rookie Dak Prescott, there was general consensus that Prescott won the job fair and square when Romo got injured.

Romo himself said as much. But there are still people around the NFL who feel Dallas didn't do right by their 10-year starter. 

As Romo was leaving the field after the Cowboys lost to the Packers in the playoffs, Pepper Burruss, Green Bay's director of sports medicine, approached him. A microphone picked up Burruss saying what sounds like, "You deserve better." 

Take a listen. 

It's possible Burruss could have meant something else, like Romo deserved better injury luck. Maybe. 

Also keep in mind that Romo may have been leaving the field as a Cowboy for the final time of his career. What a note to leave on...

The 36-year-old has said he still wants an opportunity to start in the NFL. That won't happen in Dallas, so it's likely he'll move on to another team this offseason. 

According to Adam Schefter on ESPN Radio, the Cowboys may be willing to trade Romo to the team of his choice. 

Speculation has linked him to the Broncos, Bears, Jets and Texans.
