      Supreme Court: Rejected Trade Marks that "disparage" Others Violates First Amendement

      This was a direct ruling on the Redskins case, which is still sitting in an appeals court in Richmond, but on a very similar case. The Skins case is said to have been awaiting the high courts ruling on this case and this is likely to help the Skins out with theirs. ...

      Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2017 (Continual Updates)

      Greetings to all. Summer is here, the OTAs are history, rookie camp is history, and mini camp has ended. The Redskins will now have their long vacation before training camp opens next month (July 27).

      Today we will feature our first roster prediction. Several more will be posted during training camp and the preseason. We’ll continue to monitor any free agent news, but nothing is likely to happen during this ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On his overall impression of the offseason program:
      “The number one goal, in my opinion, is for them to get stronger, work on their running and weightlifting and all of that stuff. I think they accomplished that, they got stronger. Then we wanted to introduce a system, reintroduce it on offense, introduce Greg’s [Manusky’s] new system, get it taught and then get out here and practice a little bit, do some situational work, which we did. So I feel like it was a good offseason program, I was happy about it, so we ended it today. After practice we have a meeting at 2:00 and then they’ll be on their way until training camp starts.”

      On if he feels like the defense can create takeaways this season:
      “Yeah, I think so. It’s going to be an aggressive unit, I think, and it’s all going to be dependent on pressure. You can have the best coverages in the world, but if you don’t get pressure on the quarterback, you’re not going to get any turnovers, so I think we did a much better ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On if he has an injury update on T Kevin Bowen:
      “No, he’s getting an X-ray right now… Leg or ankle, we’re not sure. They’re getting it checked out.”

      On LB Martrell Spaight’s injury:
      “Same injury as last year [shoulder].”

      On if he had any concerns about S D.J. Swearinger before signing him:
      “No concerns whatsoever. D.J. has been great. He’s been to every meeting, every practice and practices hard. He’s got a great attitude for the position. You can tell he’s got a mindset to play safety. He can do a little bit of everything. He’s improved. He’s playing with a lot of confidence. He’s a smart football player. I think you’re going to see more of D.J. Swearinger when the pads come on and he’s tackling more so than you are now. But I think he’s been great. I have no questions about his character.”

      On CB Bashaud Breeland:
      “Same thing. I think he’s grown up a lot just from his rookie year to now. I think last year we had some ups and downs, so to speak, in the whole defensive secondary and everywhere on defense – really ...

      Offseason Updates:

      The last of the OTAs started today and ends later this week.

      Brian Quick is not certain to make the roster of fifty-three. This speaks to the depth of the receiving corps.

      Look for Chris Thompson to have an increased role in 2017, especially in two minute formations.

      Jim Tomsula became animated toward the dlinemen last week for walking to the next drill instead of getting there quickly.

      BBQ believes it ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On his overall impressions:
      “I feel good. I think there’s an adjustment period for everybody, not just for the new guys, but for the guys who have been here playing with the new guys. So I think that’s the most important thing, getting everybody on the same page, figuring out everybody’s strengths and weaknesses and get things corrected and go from there. I feel good with the energy level that these guys have, their ability to learn and their desire to work hard. It’s been good.”

      On the absences of T Trent Williams, RB Matt Jones and TE Jordan Reed:
      “Jordan [Reed] is down in Miami training. He’s got a personal trainer down there. He’s working extremely hard. Trent [Williams], I believe, is in Oklahoma somewhere training and Matt Jones was absent today.”

      On his impressions of WR Josh Doctson:
      “He’s been impressive. I think the big thing for him is the confidence in his Achilles and I think he’s got that right now. I saw him out there today and yesterday, the last two days he’s looked better and better. It looks like he can ...

      I know, I know...it's all about THIS YEAR'S draft

      But I think most of us would acknowledge, you can't really assess how good a given draft was for several years. So I'm going to take us back to 2015 and take an honest look at McLovin's first opportunity to shape our draft selections.

      I'll warn you - contrary to McCloughan's reputation as a draft demi-god and talent-spotting savant - it's not particularly pretty.

      Our 2015 NFL Draft acquisitions were as follows:

      Round 1 - Brandon Scherff, T
      Facing a fanbase screaming bloody murder for a rebuild in the trenches, Scherff fit the bill. He's a big, cornfed mover of men and he has not disappointed. Solid starter, perhaps a ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On RB Samaje Perine:
      "Well, there's a lot to like. He was very productive in his years at Oklahoma. He's a physical runner, without a doubt. Nobody can argue that point. We got a chance to interview him, sit down with him at the combine. He's also a leader-type player, but really when it comes down to it, he can get from here to there – physically. He's a physical runner and had a lot of production and a lot of yards. He's a great kid. I think he's got a chance to be a special team player also. He's done some of that in his career. Can't argue the production and the toughness that he has, and that's what drew us to him."

      On if he planned to have this kind of size in this draft class:
      "That's always what you're looking for. It depends on the player, but we got bigger and stronger. We also drafted some speed. Fabian [Moreau] can run 4.3 and obviously Robert [Davis] is a very fast player, so we got a couple guys that can really run."

      On where the defense is right now on paper following the draft:
      "That's what it is – it’s on paper. You feel like you're better, everybody does at this time. It's how we gel as a unit that is the important thing – how they buy into Coach Manusky's scheme and Coach Tomsula's coaching, how they work well together and how they make each other better. That's a challenge that we have. And we're going to start out here. Phase I, they've already started. We're going to get them going and introduce them to the scheme and see how they work together."

      On if there is a common theme in their draft selections, whether it be attitude, speed or size:
      "You’d like a combination of all of them, but we definitely sided towards the attitude and the size. I think Jonathan [Allen] and [Ryan] Anderson, we figured out those two guys were tough, physical football players and that's very, very important. And Fabian, obviously, for being a corner he's got ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On LB Ryan Anderson:
      “Ryan, we’re very excited about. He brings an attitude to this football team. Having a chance to talk to him in Tuscaloosa, I spent a lot of time with him watching him play. Talking to a couple of his teammates – obviously we drafted one yesterday – nothing but high praise for him, not only on the field, but his leadership and his tenacity to get after people to play hard, play physical, [and] bring a style of play here that we’ve been looking for.”

      On CB Fabian Moreau:
      “Fabian is an ultra-talented kid. He’s a three-year starter. He had the Lisfranc injury a couple of years ago [and] he started every game last year. Unfortunately, he hurt his pec [pectoral muscle] at his pro day lifting weights. But, he ran a 4.38 [and] 4.35 at the 40 [yard dash] at the Combine. [He’s] just really talented. He’s an ex-running back. What I saw at the East-West Shrine Game with him in one-on-ones, you could see his change of direction, his ball skills. But speed, I think upside, are the keys to Fabian and we’re excited to get him.”
