The Redskins used a valued selection on a luxury item and inadvertently opened the door to a potentially awkward training camp.
Addressing the receiving corps in free agency and drafting multiple guards count as positive steps in the new Robert Griffin III (RG3) era. Passing on a needed tackle, running back or safety in the fourth round for another quarterback – Michigan State’s Kirk Cousins - in RG3’s first season does not. From the moment the Washington Redskins shipped three first-round picks plus a second-round selection to the St. Louis Rams last month, the plan should have been — and in the eyes of the staff, presumably is — to maximize their new asset’s potential. I am stumped how adding another passer does that. As always, team comes first and smart organizations draft talent over need, but within reason. In this case, special consideration should have gone…

Spokesman: Player arrested early Thursday in Arlington County.
Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather was charged with driving under the influence this week after being stopped for speeding on Interstate 66, according to Arlington County police.

Tell Us: Should the 'Skins draft a franchise quarterback or fill another need?
The NFL Draft has finally arrived and the Washington Redskins are sitting in the No. 2 spot in the first round. ESPN projects the 'Skins will select Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin, III. If RG3 comes to Washington, it will be the first time the Redskins have drafted a quarterback in the first round since Jason Campbell in 2005. Griffin threw for more than 4,000 yards and rushed for almost 700-yards last season while reaching the end zone 47 times. The last time the Redskins drafted a Heisman Trophy winner was 20-years ago when Desmond Howard joined the team, according to the Washington Times. But to move up in the 2012 NFL Draft, the 'Skins gave up a king’s ransom. To move into the St. Louis Rams’ spot, the Washington Times reported …
