Why the Redskins will LOVE Matt Ioannidis

I’ve written a lot these past few weeks about the types of players Redskins General Manager Scot McCloughan likes. Fifth round pick Matt Ioannidis is one of those guys, and he is a player the team is expecting a lot from in 2016 and beyond. First, he’s showing himself a guy who can play anywhere on the defensive line, depending on wherever they need him to be, in whatever scheme...

Washington Redskins: How will they fare in the trenches in 2016

This edition of the Washington Redskins position preview will focus on the big men up front, the offensive line. The team has had issues in this area the last few years.
