Tryon inks for four years

Tryon inks for four years

Justin Tryon signed a four-year deal with the Washington Redskins, according to Jason LaCanfora at the Post.

Update: Dave Elfin on Redskins 360 said that Tryon's signing bonus was $426,000.

He may need to get up to NFL speed in a hurry. The general feeling around Redskins Park is that it's looking more and more like Carlos Rogers will open the season on the PUP list. Should that happen, Tryon, Leigh Torrence, and John Eubanks will be the nickel and dime package depth being starters.

Following is the Redskins' press release on the Tryon signing.

WASHINGTON SIGNS FOURTH-ROUND DRAFT PICK JUSTIN TRYON

Ashburn, VA - The Washington Redskins announced today they have signed rookie cornerback Justin Tryon. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. In addition, the Redskins released safety Patrick Ghee.

Tryon (5-9, 190), a fourth round pick (124th overall) out of Arizona State, totaled 103 career tackles (80 solo), four interceptions, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble in 26 games (all starts). He also had 12 kickoff returns for 372 yards (31.0 avg.).

As a senior, he totaled 56 tackles (43 solo), one forced fumble, three interceptions, one interception returned for a touchdown and a team-high 16 passes defended (11th in the Nation). Tryon earned third-team All-America honors by The NFL Draft Report, second-team All-Pac 10 and Arizona State's Most Improved Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2007. He had his first career interception return for a touchdown (69 yards) at Washington State (10/6/07).

Tryon prepped at Taft High School in Woodland Hills, California, where he earned second-team all-city honors as a running back.

Ghee originally signed with the Redskins on May 6, 2008.

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Cornerback Dashaun Phillips had a very short return to the Redskins’ active roster.

Phillips, who started the season as the nickel cornerback before being benched and eventually released and moved to the practice squad last month, was re-signed to the roster on Friday. He made the trip to Arizona but he was inactive for the game. The Redskins announced today that he has been released again.

It is possible for Phillips to return to the practice squad if he clears through waivers.

The transaction clears a roster spot for the return of offensive tackle Trent Williams, who has been suspended for the last four games.

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Among all the darkness and depression that has followed after the Redskins' 31-23 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, one bright, shining light has emerged: Jamison Crowder's touchdown celebration.

Late in the third quarter, the second-year wideout was on the receiving end of a 26-yard Kirk Cousins strike, which put his team in the lead on the game's scoreboard by three. However, it's what he did post-catch that put his team in the lead by a far larger margin on the swagboard.

Feast your eyes on this dance, and if you've already seen it, feast your eyes on it again. And again. And AGAIN:

Do you see how much Juju he put on that beat? And did you catch how he gave the ref a little somethin'-somethin' right at the end of the sequence? Calling that flawless would be an insult to Crowder.

Apparently, Jay Gruden was heard screaming at his players in the locker room as they were processing the matchup's result Sunday night. Is it possible he was just loudly complimenting Crowder's moves?
