Redskins sign third round draft pick Josh LeRibeus

The Redskins have now signed all of this years draft picks.

Hours after quarterback Robert Griffin III inked his rookie deal, the team welcomed offensive lineman Josh LeRibeus into the fold Wednesday, according to the teams website and his agent, Jordan Woy.

Both Griffin and LeRibeus, a 6 foot 2, 312-pound guard from SMU, will join the other rookies Thursday at Redskins Park for the fourth day of rookie camp.

LeRibeus, the 71st overall pick in April, signed a four-year deal. Details of his contract were not immediately available.

The hold up for LeRibeus were the deals signed by third-rounders last year. The primary factor determining how much a draftee will earn is how much players drafted in, and immediately around, his draft slot collected the year before. A player should make a little more than the player drafted in the same slot the previous year; he should also get paid slightly less than the player drafted immediately front of him and a bit more than the guy taken right after he was.

That was not the case in 2011 when agents were in a rush to get players signed and in training camp before the ink on a new CBA had dried. That, in turn, caused problems when slotting this years third-rounders.

Dallas sportscaster really doesn't want you comparing the Cowboys' O-line to The Hogs

Dallas sportscaster really doesn't want you comparing the Cowboys' O-line to The Hogs

You'd think that comparing an offensive line to The Hogs — that famous unit who played a major role in the Redskins' best days in the 1980s and '90s — would come across as a compliment.

But one Dallas sportscaster didn't take it as such when a CSN reporter tried to do so. 

On Wednesday's edition of Countdown to Training Camp, Newy Scruggs joined Chris Miller and Doc Walker to talk about the Cowboys. During that discussion, Miller asked Scruggs if the team's revered offensive line could end up as the second coming of The Hogs.

Scruggs responded by calling that thought disrespectful. Not disrespectful to The Hogs, however.

"We've already had a great wall in Dallas that won three Super Bowls, OK?" Scruggs said with a tone that was a mix of annoyed and incredulous. "Why can't they be that next version? Let's not compare them to something that's over in Washington."

To see Scruggs' full answer to Miller's question and his entire explanation for why he didn't like it, watch the video above. And for any Redskins fans who don't like the way he spoke about The Hogs, here's the man's Twitter. Now, tweet away.

Ryan Kerrigan is capable of even more sacks, but he needs help from other defenders

Here's a list of things you can depend on Ryan Kerrigan doing: having bigger biceps than you, being a part of the world's cutest engagement photos and showing up on Sundays to harrass opposing quarterbacks. 

The Redskins' 2011 first-round pick has never missed an NFL game and has averaged 9.75 sacks over the course of his six-year career. But CSN analyst and former Redskin Doc Walker thinks the 28-year-old can be even better than the production he's posted for Washington.

"He can get that waking up," Walker said, referring to the 11 sacks Kerrigan notched last season. "I need 16, big fella."

But in Walker's opinion, there are two things that are holding the Pro Bowler back from reaching the next level. For his full analysis of what's missing, watch the video above.
