Redskins Vs. Bills: Redskins Issue First Preseason Depth Chart

With their first preseason game coming up on Thursday evening, the Redskins released their first depth chart of the preseason Monday.

Redskins Training Camp: Mike Sellers To Retire, According To Report

A long-time veteran of the Washington Redskins is expected to announce his retirement come Monday. According to CSN Washington reporter Chick Hernandez, that player is fullback Mike Sellers who is about to hang up his cleats for good.

From Hernandez:

Sellers spent 11 of his 12 NFL seasons with the Redskins, including a stop over in the CFL with the Edmonton Eskimos and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. His career highlights included a Pro Bowl selection in 2008, over 1,000 career receiving yards and 18 total touchdowns.

Sellers, who was also used as a tight end and on special teams last, was released by the Redskins last March

Redskins Training Camp 2012: Team Has Discussed Adding Another Running Back, According To Report

The Redskins first day of training camp came to a close Thursday as rumors began to swirl that the team would go out and get another running back. From Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Benson rushed for over 1,000 yards in 2011 while with the Cincinnati Bengals, while Grant is also a free agent who put up 827 all-purpose yards with Green Bay in 2011.

As for the running backs currently on the team, Mike Shanahan told the media that the competition between Tim Hightower, Roy Helu, and Evan Royster was wide open, as the team has decided to limit the activity of Hightower, who is coming off surgery to repair a torn ACL.

In other news, Shanahan said that tackle Jammal Brown was placed on the team's physically unable to perform list, where his name was joined by those of cornerback Tanard Jackson (calf) and running back Tristan Davis (knee).

Redskins Training Camp 2012: Jammal Brown Starts Camp On PUP List, According To Report

Washington Redskins right tackle Jammal Brown has not passed his training camp physical, has not been cleared to practice, and has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, according to a report by Mike Jones and Mark Maske of The Washington Post.

It is not clear what Brown's injury is, and Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan was expected to address Brown's injury after Thursday afternoon's practice. Brown has ended both of his previous two seasons in Washington on the injured reserve list due to his problematic right hip. This past offseason, Brown had reportedly taken up yoga to increase his flexibility.

According to Jones on Twitter, Tyler Polumbus took the first-team snaps at right tackle during Thursday's afternoon practice.

Redskins Training Camp: Top 4 Redskins Storylines Heading Into Camp

The Redskins will begin training camp practices Thursday morning. SBNation DC counts down the top storylines heading into this year's camp.


ESPN 980 Program Director: 'Nobody Called Me From The Redskins ... CBS Does This All The Time To Us As Well' (Updated)

Wednesday afternoon, the Redskins put a halt to 106.7 The Fan's (WJFK-FM) planned live broadcast of Robert Griffin III's pre-training camp press conference, which was broadcast on the team's flagship radio station, ESPN980 (WTEM-AM), CSN Washington, and all four of D.C.'s network TV affiliates. The team's intervention prompted a rant from 106.7's afternoon host, Chad Dukes, who has been known to express his frustration with the Redskins before.

Reached by phone Wednesday night, ESPN 980 Program Director Chuck Sapienza said that he had no prior knowledge that the Redskins would stop 106.7 The Fan's planned broadcast of Griffin's press conference.

"That had nothing to do with us," Sapienza said. "We had no say over it ... Nobody called me from the Redskins.

"If someone had asked me if I would want exclusive coverage [of Griffin's press conference], of course I would. But I don't have the authority to stop [rival stations from broadcasting]."

However, Sapienza did criticize 106.7 for using what he believes are similar tactics in keeping potential guests off 980's airwaves.

"They put a stop to us having [Nationals General Manager] Mike Rizzo on the air," Sapienza said. 106.7 is the Nationals' flagship station; however, games are also carried on Richmond's WXGI-AM and the AM and FM stations of Virginia Beach's WXTG. All three stations, like ESPN 980, are owned by Red Zebra Broadcasting, which was founded by Redskins owner Dan Snyder, and both WXGI and WXTG-FM carry Redskins games as well.

Sapienza said that Rizzo had not been on 980's airwaves since before Major League Baseball's All-Star Break. He added that the station had been prevented from honoring TV sports broadcaster and D.C. native James Brown in its "Lunch With A Legend" series due to Brown's position as the host of CBS' The NFL Today. Similarly, Sapienza said, the station was unable to have former Redskins General Manager Charley Casserly on air due to the latter's position as a CBS NFL analyst. CBS owns WJFK, as well as all-news station WNEW-FM (99.1) and talk station WNEW-AM (1580).

"I like 90 percent of the guys over there [at WJFK]," Sapienza said. "I like [WJFK program director] Chris Kinard. He's a smart guy. But CBS does this all the time to us as well ... It's kind of funny that they're upset about this, when they just did the exact same thing."

Sapienza also reaffirmed that the presence of Snyder on Red Zebra's board of directors does not interfere with 980's programming.

"I've been program director for two years and vice president of programming for one year," Sapienza said. "This conversation we're having now [15-20 minutes] is longer than any I've had with Dan Snyder."

Kinard responded Thursday afternoon by email: "Having an exclusive personal services contract with an individual is a lot different than barring a station from covering a news event. This was a press conference, not an interview request. The Redskins barred 106.7 The Fan... and ONLY 106.7 The Fan, from covering a live press conference. And only because the Redskins own 980. Listeners can make their own minds up about how this will affect their listening habits."


Redskins Training Camp 2012: Robert Griffin III Addresses Media, 106.7 The Fan Denied Live Broadcasting

Robert Griffin III's pre-training camp press conference Wednesday afternoon was broadcast live by all four of D.C.'s network TV affiliates, as well as by CSN Washington and by the team's flagship radio station, ESPN980. One station that was shut out of carrying the press conference live was D.C.'s other sports talk radio station, 106.7 The Fan.

The station was set to broadcast the 5:30 p.m. press conference live. However, 106.7's program director Chris Kinard says that Redskins Vice President/Communications Tony Wyllie called the station just before the press conference was set to begin and threatened to pull its team-issued credentials if the station went live to Ashburn.

"It was 5:27 p.m.," Kinard told SB Nation D.C. "We were setting up our equipment to broadcast the press conference."

According to Kinard, Wyllie told him that 106.7 was prohibited from doing live broadcasts of any press conference being carried by ESPN980, the team's flagship station which is also owned by Red Zebra Broadcasting. Daniel Snyder, the owner of the Redskins, is an investor in Red Zebra and serves on the board of directors of its parent company.

"Normally, we wouldn't carry, say, a Mike Shanahan press conference [during the week]," Kinard said. "But this was a newsworthy event that's not scheduled weekly ... They flat-out told us that we're the competition.

"I'm not going to risk our credentials over it."

"This is a broadcast rights holder issue," Wyllie wrote in response to an email from SB Nation D.C.

Kinard said that he has filed a formal complaint with the NFL, the second time he has had to do so since the station went to an all-sports format in 2009. He said that Wednesday's incident was not the first time he and the Redskins have butted heads.

"They used to make our reporter drive off the [Redskins Park] property before he could do reports," Kinard said, referring to former 106.7 The Fan man Chris Russell, who jumped to 980 prior to the 2010 season. He was replaced by current Redskins reporter Grant Paulsen.
