--Despite efforts by head coach Mike Shanahan and general manager Bruce Allen to revitalize the organization with youth, some national pundits still believe that the Redskins have the fewest number of high-potential players under 25 in the NFC East.

--Today is the second day of OTA practices open to the media this offseason. With Robert Griffin III talking to the media for the first time and Kirk Cousins taking over the offense last week, here are a list of storylines to keep an eye on in the second week of offseason practices.

--The groundbreaking ceremony for the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center happened only 18 weeks ago, but the facility is on track for training camp and will be fully-functional by June 30.

--Yesterday, the Redskins announced the reunion between head coach Mike Shanahan and his former defensive coordinator Larry Coyer, who will serve as the newest Advance Scout for the Redskins. Here is what his addition and new offensive assistant Aubrey Pleasant bring to the organization.  

--Last season, offensive tackle Tony Pashos didn't make an NFL roster and spent the season in limbo. After a year away from football, here's a look at his efforts to regain a roster spot in the NFL with the Redskins.

--After signing the entire 2013 NFL draft class last week, in an offseason when the team is strapped for cash under the salary cap, here is an updated look at the Redskins salary cap situation.

--Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has been tasked with running with the first-team offense until Robert Griffin III returns, whenever that may be. But despite his big opportunity, Cousins is keeping a cool head and cheering for Griffin III to come back healthy.

--The Redskins name debate is never short on opinions, but here is another perspective from a Native American chief who says he would be offended if the Redskins decided to change their name.

--Meanwhile, others disagree on that approach.

--And according to the Washington Business Journal, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has selected a house in Loudoun County that he can call home.
