Sure not as exciting as Lloyd and Randle-El, but we needed a replacement for Royal and Fauria is a decent stopgap.

I am so very confused. Do the Redskins plan on cutting their team or something? Where do they have any money left?

I see salary cap jail in the next year or two happening in Washington, much like what happened in SF and TEN the past couple years.
