Redskins sign Tryon, Horton; Other Skins Updates


The Washington Redskins signed cornerback Justin Tryon, a fourth round pick, to a four year contract. Tryon has good speed and cover abilities but he’s a little short and may have problems covering some of the larger NFL wide receivers.  We’ve had some success with undersized cornerbacks before, so let’s hope it works out. Like his teammate Fred Smoot, he’s known to have a mouth and enjoys trash talking. 

We may end up needing him, since Carlos Rogers is coming off major reconstructive surgery to repair torn ligaments late last season. There’s a decent chance he could start off the season on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform list.  Rogers never quite lived up to expectations, but has been a part of some top-ranked Gregg Williams defenses and his absence could pose a problem for us.

 In other injury news, Rocky McIntosh is also coming off of season-ending knee surgery but the Washington post reports that he is scheduled to be medically cleared to play on June 19th.  This is, of course, great news since Rocky was really having a breakout year before his injury. 

Finally, the Redskins signed their seventh round pick, safety Chris Horton.  With Horton and Tryon signed, we still have eight players left to sign.  Washington’s front office is going to start negotiations with their three second-round picks next week.

    Just for you TD, here’s a song about Why the Cowboys Stink.

  • http://landryhat davedallasfan

    hey that was funny as hell….wow….. why the cowboys stink….haahhaaa funny. i would like to go on record to say, as i’ve said in many of my posts before. i don’t like fatass. never did. never will. why, well, he’s the damn reason why this song should be written to, not about. and please ask his fatass why he passed on steven jackson in his first draft. if we’d have taken him, our running game would have made a difference, and we would’nt have had to lay everything on bledsoe, he would have been an asset, not a liabilty. even as good as bledsoe was he could’nt carry dallas at that point of his career. so was that jerry’s fault, hell no, hang that shit on the fatass, man. yeah quincy was a mistake, but we have romo now, so if fatass did one good thing it was to bring the kid in. fatass still did build a solid team here in dallas, one that has more potential for a superbowl, i can’t name one?????? so laugh alittle, cause the song is funny as hell, but the laughin will soon stop as the games begin. and fatass is not on our sideline. and as the song goes i’ll always remember fatass as a giant coach. maybe thats why i can’t get over my hatred.

    You’re the one team he couldn’t turn around. Gotta love how he tries to take credit for last year’s success too. And then steals all your players and coaches.

  • http://thelandryhat.com thelandryhat

    Gotta love it too when a Hall of Fame coach is begged to return to try and turn the team around and ends up losing his HOF credentials after making the team worse than it was.

    Yikes.

  • http://thelandryhat.com thelandryhat

    Yeah, what I was saying is Gibbs is no longer a HOF in my opinion.

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    Yeah but in your world Jason Witten is a Hall of Fame Tight end, so I don’t put much stock in your opinion Dan. 

    As I said over on your site, you live in your own world and you think you win an argument or a debate because you say so. Logic and fact have no place in your world.

    You’re like some deranged homeless guy who thinks that he owns a highrise because the urine-soaked alley he lives in happens to be connected to it.  Go back to your cardboard box and try to keep the muttering down while the rest of us talk grown-up talk, mmm-kay? Thanks.

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    I’d rather be a coach who people begged to return than one who was uncerimoniously dumped on his ass in disgrace.

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    Yeah, what I was saying is that Landry died in disgrace, humiliated and shamed. In my opinion.
    Want to keep it up Dan?

  • TDCowboys

    Yo have to admit that atleast Gibbs left the skins stock piled with talent, and did what he was known for by picking up random guys off the street and turning them into studs, Atleast he got the skins back to thier winning ways. 
    Oh wait my bad, he forgot to do that cuse he was too busy picking his fantasy lineup for NASCAR.   RIP GIBBS

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    Our year last year was just as successful as the Cowboys. We made it to the playoffs and then lost.

  • TDCowboys

    13-3 and 13 pro-bowlers was the only difference.

  • TDCowboys

    NFC Champs

  • WestCoastSkins

    Only problem is the ‘skins season was considered a success. The cowboys was considered a disaster.

  • WestCoastSkins

    Haha good movie. I like the “Shady Brady and Bill Belicheat” also.

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    Well said WestCoast. 13-3 and 13 pro-bowlers and yet you still ended up one and done just like us. What a waste.

    The only thing your record and pro-bowlers says is that you botched your season that much more. All the victories in the world doesn’t count for squat if you can’t win when it counts. Just ask the Patriots and their 17-1 season.

  • TDCowboys

    no no no you seem to be misreading what I wrote. 13-3 and 13 players on the Dallas Cowboys who went to play in the Pro-Bowl. What did you guys do? O yea thats right you got rapped by the Seahawks and didnt even belong in a playoff bracket. We however lost to the Super Bowl Champs, not a team that got destroyed by Green Bay a week later. So yes I aggree you gotta win when it counts but to compare your skins season to the cowboys just says you like to huff Ether.

  • WestCoastSkins

    Yall were still a disappointment no matter how you look at it. And by you saying we didnt even belong in the playoffs makes us look that much better for being there.

  • TDCowboys

    How does it make you look better when you barley make it into the playoffs and then get CRUSHED by seattle in the first game????? The season is always a dissapointment when your NFC Champs and your 13-3 and you have 13 players going to the pro-bowl.

  • TDCowboys

    And we loose in the first round

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    We destroyed the superbowl champions late in the regular season when they were playing at home with our backup quarterback and our hand tied behind our back. You couldn’t beat the Giants when they were on the road in Dallas and you guys had an extra week to rest and prepare.

    Also, we didn’t get crushed by Seattle. Things fell apart in the end but for a while there in the 3rd quarter it looked like we were going to pull an upset.  What really would have been painful is if we had the game wrapped up and then lost because our star quarterback botched the snap for the winning field goal. Now THAT would be a pretty humiliating loss against Seattle.  

  • TDCowboys

    Im pretty sure we put up 76 points on the Giants in the regular season and beat them both times. What did you guys do the first time you played them????????? So dont give me that, you couldnt gain 2 yards on four tries. WITH ALL YOUR RUNNNG BACKS

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    You couldn’t beat them when it counted. That’s all that matters. What we did in September is fairly meaningless; the Redskins were a very different team in September than they were in December.

    As for getting two yards, that can be pretty tough. The cowboys couldn’t get more than HALF that amount in an entire game against us as I recall.

  • TDCowboys

    We both know that you guys despretly needed to win that game and we despertly needed to escape without injuries (13-2 Homefield advantage and 13 pro bowlers lol). See thats a game that doesnt count. ..Also if the skins would have gotten those 2 yards and won, then the Giants would have never made it into the playoffs. But according to you that game didnt count?? Also you never saw Barber get stuffed 4 times on the two yard line to loose the game period.

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    Oh please. WE both know that you guys want to spin it that way, but your revisionist history is a bunch of crap. The Cowboys played their starters for an entire half and were killed that half too.  The cowboys REALLY wanted to knock the Redskins out of the playoffs and you know it.

    Saying it doesn’t count is a pathetic rationalization and you’re better than that. 

    I never said that the Giants win over the Redskins in September didn’t count. I give them credit for that comeback and that was the first preview we had of the toughness and grit that team was going to show throughout the playoffs and the superbowl.  I’m just proud of the fact that we were able to go to New York late in the season and totally dominate that team.  Yes, the cowboys did that too, but unlike the Cowboys we didn’t shit the bed in the playoffs against them; we never had a chance to play them. 

    The Seahawks have bragging rights over us. The Giants own you guys. That’s all I’m saying.

  • redskin777us

    The biggest reason for loosing to the Giants in September was coaching decisions. Thinking a 14 point lead at halftime was a reason to coach a game on cruse control was pathetic. From play calling to personnel decisions was flat out wrong on many levels.
    I take nothing away from the Giants players playing better than we did in the second half, don’t get me wrong…….however, we stopped attacking them in the second half of that game, like so many other times Gibbs thought a touchdown lead or more was good enough to win. One the field their players did to us in the second half what we did to them in the first half, they flat out took it to us.  Over the last 4 year we lost far too many games for that same reason, we would sit on a 10-14 point lead.
    Zorn  has said we will not stop attacking teams when we have a lead I like that. The man was a pretty good QB and played against defenses that never stopped coming at him when they were loosing. So from an offensive play calling perspective I am all for that attitude of attack, attack, and attack some more.  Then, when you’re playing against the Allas Cowboys (no, this is not a typographical error, because we all know the Cowboys have no D) just for good measure, attack some more

  • TDCowboys

    RG THE GIANTS OWN US??????   You have really lost it this time im not even gonna show you why your dead wrong because you know you are, and ill just pretend that you were drunk. NO one has ever put up 76 points on the Giants in the regular season but yet they own us cuse they won by four points in the playoffs????YOUR BANNED!

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    And yet…they STILL own you.  They own you because they won when it counts. Nobody cares that you put up 76 points in the regular season. Talk to the Bills and Bengals and Vikings fans about almost.  They own you and they’ll always own you because they won and they went on to win the superbowl and you guys STILL haven’t won a playoff game.

    Deep down, you know I’m right. Tell me honestly, would you rather have the playoff win and a chance at the superbowl or the 76 point record? 

    What’s that? You want the playoff win? Then SHUT THE HELL UP!

  • Staubach

    Cowboys and Skins fan may hate each other and get on the others nerves, but we  both have a heck of lot more class than Eagles fans

  • TDCowboys

    I understand your point about them winning when it counts guy.. But Deep down you know your being retarded and talking out of your ass, throwing phrases around like “will always own you”????
     Usually you have decent stuff to say and are usually good with facts but your opinion is just based on the fact that you hate Dallas. And based on your theory “They own you and they’ll always own you because they won and they went on to win the superbowl”. So your saying that everyone the Giants have beaten last year that they “own” them??? Thats a little over the the edge there sport.

     Cowboys vs Giants 53-35-2 Dallas leads the series infact Dallas leads the series on EVERYONE in the NFC EAST… THE DALLAS COWBOYS OWN THE WHOLE NFC EAST. Not just because we lead the series on everyone but we have 5 superbowls which is more than SKIN,Giants,and Eagles combined. Those are facts, and Im sure you know this. So for you to say stuff like the Giants will always own the cowboys just makes me realize why LandrHat always tells you “YOUR BANNED”

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    Okay let me clarify. They owned you LAST SEASON. I don’t mean for all time.  You need to avenge yourself for what they did to you. Until that happens, you’re pwned. 

  • WestCoastSkins

    Thank you for finally agreeeing with me that your season was a dissappointment. I know ours wasnt much better but our perception of a good season was different last year than yours.

    I disagree the Giants own the Cowboys last year. The Cowboys beat them solidly the first two matchups and for whatever reason their heads were just not in the game for the playoff matchup

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    Giants won when it counted. The Cowboys went home. The Giants were the ones who sent them home.  I think they’ve got bragging rights if you ask me.

    The two losses during the regular season might as well have not happened because of the Cowboy’s late 4th quarter collapse in the playoffs.

    Any cowboy fan who thinks they have bragging rights over the Giants for the two regular season games is pathetic.  It’s like bragging about pre-season games.  The Giants sent the Cowboys home and they themselves went on to win in the superbowl. End of story.

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    You said it yourself. The Cowboys season was a disappointment.  The Giants season was the Cindarella story dreams are made of.  Case closed.

  • TDCowboys

    Exactly DREAMS it wont happen again, and to base your overall outlook that the Giants ARE better than the Cowboys because the Giants pulled a miracle is retarded. You know better than that guy

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    The Giants WERE the better team last year.  If you can’t be man enough to admit that, you’re no better than those pathetic Patriots fans who were whining about clock management during the superbowl and said they should have won.

    The Cowboys seem to have a stronger team this year. I’d certainly rank them higher.  But really, who the hell knows what’s going to happen? Until they play, it’s all speculation. Until you prove it on the field, they still own you, and until someone takes the superbowl trophy next year, they’ll still be the defending champs. 

    To say otherwise is not only disrespecting the Giants, but it’s disrespecting the Superbowl and the NFL in general. Like it or not the Giants deserve props. 

  • TDCowboys

    The Giants get my props for beating al the odds and even i have posted that before. But I DO NOT and WILL NOT Respect the Giants. In the begining of the year all they and thier fans did was bitch at each other, and thier doing it again, I mean in game 3 they already wanted Coughflin gone…There not a team to me they just had the ball bounce thier way. What kinda team that wns the SB and then does nothing but bitch about money and being traded in the offseason?

  • TDCowboys

    Now giants RB Bradshaw is sering a 30 jail sentence for violating his probation…(I know its minor and happened a while ago) but it helps my point.. And by the way Everyone exept Cowboys players are getting arrested or having run ins with the law (nfl.com everyday)

    Uh, a witness to some of Pac Man’s crimes was apparently thrown out of a building and killed. You might not want to jinx yourself there buddy. You better hope that you’re right.
