Quick Look at the Redskins Initial 53-Man Roster (2013)

Redskins Hand out new Jersey Numbers

The Redskins started the day needing to get from 75 players to 53 players. Along the way they decided to keep 4 quarterbacks, which came as a surprise to everyone, and also decided to cut Chase Minnifield and Dejon Gomes. It should also be said that after Jarvis Jenkins and Rob Jackson serve their 4 game suspensions the Redskins will have to make room on the roster for them as well.

It’s possible that the team will watch the waiver wire in the next 24 hours and sign some otehr players and perhaps release some as well…there is also the possibility that the Redskins are looking for a team to trade Pat White to. Below is a quick look of the players we made the 53 man list.

  1. Nikki Miller says:

    Pat White is not the one who needs to be traded….

  2. Dr. ThinKingStein says:

    Why does everyone think the Redskins will trade Pat White instead of Rex Grossman? Do you know the confusion defenses will face with any play featuring RGIII & Pat White in the backfield?

  3. youre a fucking moron, drthinkingstein. theyre not going to run a single play all year with both of them on the field at one time

  4. R. Clarke says:

    Yeah cut Grossman and bring the WR you should not had cut Dezmon Briscoe. Injury or no injury. 4 QB’s what a joke!

  5. Grossman will be a good trade to the Jets, Arizona, Jacksonville or Buffalo for a couple draft picks, I think keeping White is a good idea. White is young and has quite a few years left to prepare him for the future. He can be molded to the player the Skins want, Grossman doesn’t have the youth, the accuracy or the ability to run the team in the level the team needs.
