A morning roundup of what the local and national media have to say about the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, July 17, 2013.
--One of the most talked-about positions heading into training camp is the outcome of the competition to start at free safety this season. A preview of the camp competition.
--Redskins offensive guard Josh LeRibeus was a high draft pick in 2012 and figures to mesh well with the team's zone-blocking scheme. Will he see more playing time this year? If not, which 2012 draft pick do YOU think will see more playing time?
--The Washington Redskins are packing up today to move the necessary football equipment down to the Richmond Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center. How should the players prepare themselves?
--The Redskins have developed a meaningful rivalry with the New York Giants under head coach Mike Shanahan. Heading into training camp, here is a look at what the G-Men have been up to this offseason.
--Redskins will have tough decisions to make for playing time at tight end, but opposing defenses will have a harder time stopping whoever takes the field.
--It may be a slow news day in the NFL, but that doesn't mean that Redskins fans are excited for football season. Here's a gallery of them 'Griffining' around the globe.
--Even though the Redskins have found multiple long-term answers at quarterback, how the training camp snaps play out will have largely to do with health rather than talent.
--Meanwhile, the running back competition is likely to be less focused around who starts and more focused on who alleviates pressure off franchise back .
--The Redskins retain each of the starters along the defensive line from last year, and return veteran contributors Adam Carriker and Kedric Golston. What does this mean for the competition? It could mean big expectations for the unit.
--On the offensive line, the Redskins dodged the proverbial bullet last year, keeping all of the starters healthy and active for all but one start. Do they have the depth necessary to succeed if they aren't so lucky this year?
--NFL expert Albert Breer gave positive marks to Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder, crediting him with taking a step back and letting football experts run the show. He compares that to the system in Dallas, where Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has yet to take that step forward.
