--Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan may have had a Pro Bowl season last year, but is adament about improving on last year's success with the return of his partner in crime during his third NFL season.

--The Redskins took a risk signing Giants defensive tackle Barry Cofield to be the anchor of the defense, understanding that he had never played in the 3-4 and was an undersized nose tackle. Three years later, that risk is paying off as Barry Cofield feels perfectly at home at nose tackle.

--According to an NFL.com article, the Washington Redskins have an atypical power structure in the front office, with head coach Mike Shanahan making most of the personnel calls on the roster and general manager Bruce Allen acting as the public face and the glue that holds departments together.
--SI.com writer Peter King attended last week's OTA practice and left with "little doubt" that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will be ready for Week 1 of the 2013 season.
