--Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett looks ahead to this upcoming season and emphasizes that signing linebackers Brian Orakpo and Perry Riley Jr. is a priority for the team.

--After Roger Goodell discusses the possibility of eliminating the extra point, Redskins’ long snapper Nick Sundberg speaks out about why it should remain a part of the game saying “Once the extra points are gone, the field goals are gone too.”

--One article talks about why Warren Buffet thought about buying the Washington Redskins when he was younger and what player was his “hero in those days.”

--Whether or not the Redskins should place the franchise tag on linebacker Brian Orakpo or sign him to a long term deal remains a question. One article reviews the positives and negatives of using the tag on the free agent linebacker.

--One article mentions that the Washington Redskins should trade back in the second round of the 2014 NFL draft and what positions they should address with those picks. The Redskins do not currently have a first round pick in the upcoming draft after trading it away two years ago in the deal that brought in quarterback Robert Griffin III.
