A morning roundup of what the local and national media have to say about the Washington Redskins on Friday, June 28, 2013.
--Is there really anything to be gained by the Washington Redskins playing quarterback Robert Griffin III during preseason action?
--It may be more than seven months away, but given the down time of the offseason, is it worth pondering whether or not the Redskins are true Super Bowl contenders? Two reporters discuss.
--With Robert Griffin III recovering from ACL surgery this offseason, the Washington Redskins have been one of the most compelling news sources in the NFL this offseason. What if the next time they had the top story, if the NFL forced them to host 'Hard Knocks?'
--Washington Redskins great John Riggins goes on the set of CSNWashington to discuss hunting and life after football with former teammate Rick 'Doc' Walker. He also discussed his new show, debuting Saturday, July 6.
--Here's a look ahead to the regular season, with an in-depth look at the moves made this offseason by the archrival Dallas Cowboys.
--With training camp less than one month away, CSNWashington continues their competition previews with a look at right guard.
--Remember Redskins outside linebacker Brian Orakpo? Well, he's back. He's healthy. And SI.com thinks he is poised for a dramatic resurgence in the final year of his rookie contract.
--Undrafted rookies face an uphill battle for a roster spot on the NFL, but Xavier Nixon is ready to battle in training camp for consideration.
--Redskins tight end Fred Davis could be back on the field much faster than yesteryear players with Achilles' injuries. According to the surgeon that performed his procedure, Davis needed a much smaller incision and is technically ahead of expectations.
--It's no secret that the Redskins were banged up last year, but still managed to win seven straight and win the NFC East for the first time since 1999. Without factoring in any of the additions made this offseason, along with the retention of 21-of-22 starters from a year ago, can the Redskin get significantly better just by staying healthy?
--One local reporter asks which Redskins' jersey you would buy, because why not? Unlike ages past when talent on the team was limited, the decision may not be as simple as you might think.
