Trent Williams fined for altercation with Richard Sherman
Williams took the blame for the incident. “I mean, just high emotions, man. I let them get the best of me. It’s nobody’s fault but mine,” Williams said. “I’ve got to calm down a little bit. It’s just when you lose a game like this with high intensity, you’re a little on edge, and I reacted in an immature manner. I’m taught better than that. I’ve just got to be better. It’s my first playoff run, to have the season end like that, and to kind of be taunted, it’d take a bigger man to walk away, and next time I just got to be a bigger man.”

“While the playoffs may continue without the Skins, we’re giving the fans a little extra something and at the same time thanking RGIII for a great year and hope that he gets better soon!”
“Just having guys like [wide receiver] Pierre Garçon and [quarterback] Robert Griffin III in the locker room made a big difference this year.” Paul said. “Their attitude and their demeanor they brought to the field kind of affected everybody.”
“You have to pay a little bit more attention to that leg,” Goff said Thursday about the patellar tendon graft removed from his left (healthy) knee. “They’re just taking out a chunk from your knee, so it’s not the best feeling in the world. But since the beginning, it has been strong and sturdy. It’s just that there’s a fair amount of pain management and soft-tissue work that you got to do to keep it moving.”
“I’ll take the same process that I’ve taken the last four or five years,” he told reporters. “I’ll take some time to let the emotions of the season kind of get away, refresh for a little bit and then sit down with my family and make the decision as [to] whether I’ll continue to play or not.”
“That’s crazy, right?” Wall said last April. “Now RGIII and me are going to be doing our thing here together, ballin’ out, trying to bring D.C. teams back to respectability.” Told that was a lot to ask given their ages and their respective franchises struggles, Wall replied, “Naw, we’re up to it. We gotta do it — who else if not us?”

The Washington Redskins currently don’t have under contract their starting right tackle Tyler Polumbus, left guardKory Lichtensteiger, free safety Madieu Williams, nickel corner Cedric Griffin, and punter Sav Rocca as well as key reserves DL Kedric Golston, QB Rex Grossman, LB Lorenzo Alexander, DL Chris Baker and OL Jordan Black. Also restricted free agents are not included which includes FB Darrel Young, TE Logan Paulsen and top reserve OLBRob Jackson. If the Redskins were to re-sign all of these guys to very moderate deals, it would be an additional $8-12 million against the cap. This means the Redskins would need to clear at least $12 million from the payroll, even if they don’t upgrade a single position (outside the draft).
