Redskins training camp 2010 has begun and it is already an eventful one. Fans will now begin to see the fruit of the offseason labors of Head Coach Mike Shanahan and General Manager Bruce Allen, who have attempted to revamp the roster to lift the team from its 4-12 finish last year into immediate playoff contention this year.
To get a firm handle on what we should be watching and what we should expect from this training camp, DC Pro Sports Report went to four impeccable sources for Redskins news and insight. We spoke to John Keim of The Examiner, as good a beat reporter as you'll find in this town; Rick Snider, a must-read columnist for The Examiner; Rich Tandler, an encyclopedic source of Redskins information past and present; and Express Sports Editor Clinton Yates, who knocked my socks off with his knowledge and wit in a podcast we did together earlier this year. Readers of DC Pro Sports Report are familiar with all these guys -- we keep going back to them because they're as good as it gets. We asked each of them 3 questions about the training camp and I think you'll find their answers fascinating and, sometimes, even surprising.
As always, their responses are presented in the order we received them. Read on and learn...
