Sorry for the "absence"

Sorry for the "absence"

Folks, I want to apologize for not having posted here for a while. As some of you know, the "real" home for this blog is located at WarpathInsiders.com. That's where my articles on the Redskins are posted immediately and frequently. If you want to catch up on what you've missed, just go here to the site archives and you can get everything I've written for the site.

Some are under the impression that WarpathInsiders.com is a "pay" site. While there are some articles there that require a subscription to access, my blog and many other great articles are available for anyone, just as they are here.

Also, if you're using RSS or another newsreader to alert you to new entries here, you can do the same thing for the WarpathInsiders site.

That being said, I will be sure to start cross-posting my blog entries here starting immediately. I like the archive feature here and, most of all, the regular comments I get from a lot of you. They will be posted first at WarpathInsiders.com and there may be a delay in getting them copied over to here, but I promise that I will do so as soon as I have a chance.

Thanks much for your loyal readership for what's coming up on two years. Although it's not a huge audience here, it's a loyal one and it's a lot of fun getting your feedback and comments.

OK, time to get to Redskins Park, I should have a new post in the next 24 hours or so.

Redskins 2017 NFL Draft preview: What you need to know about the Redskins' draft

The 2017 NFL Draft isn't officially here, but it's very near. And for the Washington Redskins, this year's NFL Draft brings with it a lot of intrigue.

The Redskins are coming off an 8-7-1 season and are in the middle of an offseason that's included a lot of change. Therefore, the team needs to ace their 2017 NFL Draft and bring in a rookie class with a lot of talent.

Kirk Cousins tweets about signing an extension – but don't get your hopes up Redskins fans

Kirk Cousins tweets about signing an extension – but don't get your hopes up Redskins fans

From February to July of 2016, Redskins fans anxiously waited for news that quarterback Kirk Cousins would agree to a contract extension with the franchise. It never happened. It's late April, and Cousins and Washington are on the same track in 2017. 

While fans grow wary of the lack of movement towards a new deal, some league sources think contract talks will heat up as the calendar draws closer to the July 15 deadline. 

That doesn't mean Cousins can't have a good sense of humor about things.

To be clear, this is another year of Cousins working to promote the Holland Hospital in his hometown in Michigan. This is not an extension with the Redskins. And it gave a number of Redskins fans an outburst of excitement before a stark realization. Below are a few Twitter responses:

Considering how testy the contract talks between the 'Skins and Cousins representatives have been at times, it's good to see the club's all-time single season passing yards record holder be able to laugh about things. 

It doesn't, however, mean much about the actual negotiations between Washington and Cousins.
