15 pre-Shanahan Redskins remain

Mike Shanahan said yesterday that there are 15 players left on the roster from when he took over the team in January of 2010. That total includes Anthony Armstrong, who was on the Redskins practice squad prior to Shanahans arrival, and Chris Wilson, who was with the team from 2007-2010. Wilson did not play in the NFL in 2011 and was re-signed by the Redskins last month.Two additional players, cornerback Leigh Torrence and fullback Darrel Young, were associated with the Redskins pre-Shanahan. Torrence played in Washington from 2006-2008 before being released. Young spent some time on the Redskins practice squad in 2009.Of the 15, nine play on defense, five play on offense, and Graham Gano is a specialist.Seven of the players, Lorenzo Alexander, Chris Cooley, Reed Doughty, London Fletcher, Kedric Golston, Santana Moss, and Chris Wilson, where with the team when Joe Gibbs left as head coach following the 2007 season.The number of players who started prior Shanahans arrival could be cut in half by the time the season starts. Some eight of the 15 are on the bubble to varying degrees when it comes to making the final 53-man roster.Lorenzo AlexanderAnthony Armstrong (PS)Kevin BarnesChris CooleyFred DavisReed DoughtyLondon FletcherGraham GanoKedric GolstonDeAngelo HallRob JacksonWill MontgomerySantana MossBrian OrakpoChris Wilson

Mic'd up: This is what it sounds like as the Redskins running backs go through drills

Mic'd up: This is what it sounds like as the Redskins running backs go through drills

During a chat on the #RedskinsTalk podcast last month, Washington's running back coach Randy Jordan clued in CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay about the way he teaches his players and the things he wants to see from them.

Now, though, thanks to an exclusive Redskins Nation video, you have a chance to truly watch and listen to how Jordan and his students approach their on-field work.

In this all-access Mic'd Up segment (which was filmed at minicamp and which you can watch in the player above), you'll see the assistant encourage Samaje Perine, correct Matt Jones and compliment Rob Kelley. You'll also hear every grunt, bump and cut, an important ingredient that these types of packages must have.

It's clear from the footage that Jordan cares about the details. Now, don't blow this assignment, and go check out the video above.
