Redskins players gathered yet again at a local Northern Virginia high school this week for another round of player-organized workouts. After impressive attendance numbers last month, 31 players are reported to have shown up today. The usual guys (and organizers) like London Fletcher, John Beck, Lorenzo Alexander are present, and there has been a pleasant surprise with the addition of Brian Orakpo and Malcolm Kelly.
Kelly, who missed the entire 2010 season on Injured Reserve, will be looking to shed his “bust” label and have a productive year. It remains to be seen if he can stay healthy. His size and hands could sure benefit the less-than-flashy Redskins offense, especially in the red zone.
Notable absences from today’s workouts include Laron Landry, rookies Maurice Hurt and DeJon Gomes, and Trent Williams.
Also, some additional good news, the word on the street is owners and player-reps are meeting in Chicago over the next few days and have been told to clear their schedules. It sounds like they’re going to hit the debate table pretty hard.
