Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin Still In Critical Condition

In what was perhaps the scariest moment in NFL history, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest on the field during the Monday Night Football broadcast. Players on both teams stood mouths agape – many in tears – as Hamlin had CPR performed on him.

It was like nothing any National Football League game had ever seen.  The thousands in attendance in Cincinnati, as well as millions watching around the globe, all held their collective breaths in disbelief about what was unfolding before them.

Hamlin remained on the field for half an hour before he was whisked away in the ambulance. He remained in critical condition at the hospital overnight.

Redskins Preparing for Free Agency

Entering free agency with an abundance of cap space gives the Redskins lots of options to fill plenty of needs, even after re-signing cornerback DeAngelo Hall, defensive tackle Chris Baker, safety Jose Gumbs and franchising linebacker Brian Orakpo.

The Redskins dropped off dramatically after a division title in 2012. Following a 10-6 season they returned back to the NFC East basement in 2013 with a 3-13 record and no first-round pick to show for it.

That, coupled with their $36 million cap penalty for 2012 and 2013, makes this free agency period more important than normal.

Washington was tied with the Chicago Bears in 2013 for allowing the second most points points per game (29.9), which means the defense, specifically the secondary, will be a high priority in this free agent class.

So who might the Redskins target to improve their roster? Let’s take a look at who the team reportedly has their sights set on based on reports from local Redskins beat writers.

Jones-ing For Some O-Line Help

While I’m sure what I wrote had nothing to do with it, last week I blogged that I couldn’t believe that the Redskins hadn’t brought in an offensive lineman or two; at least give them a look, and see if they could try and improve the team’s anemic line play.

Early Play-Off Look For Redskins

Its definitely too early to really make play-off predictions, but Steve Wyche did so any way. There’s no real surprise information here. Obviously, he has the Giants, Panthers and Cardinals as locks, since all three of these teams are the class of their division, at least as it presently looks in the standings. He also lists Tampa Bay as being “In good standing.” Again, no surprise. They are 7-3 and playing pretty good football.
