Redskins To Hold 'Mini-Mini' Camp As NFL Lockout Continues

Let's get the bad news out of the way first: there will be an NFL lockout this winter. How long remains up in the air, but it's already happening. This is also bad news for the notoriously strict Mike Shanahan, whose view on the importance of OTA sessions became very clear last season.

No coaches can be present, but it's better than nothing. Hell, via Steinberg, Brian Orakpo has already volunteered to play Jim Haslett and call plays where he rushes the passer all the time. See, everything will work out fine.
