Redskins brass dined with free agent Eddie Royal on Tuesday night

Patrick Chung, Eddie Royal AP

Several reports surfaced Tuesday evening that the Redskins had signed free agent wide receiver Eddie Royal. They were quickly debunked, and as of early Wednesday Royal had not signed a deal.

However, Dan Hellie of NBC Washington reports that Redskins brass did dine with Royal late Tuesday. Per Hellie, owner Dan Snyder, G.M. Bruce Allen, and head coach Mike Shanahan were all at the dinner.

They ate at Morton’s steakhouse in D.C.

The Redskins signed two other receivers on Tuesday, luring Josh Morgan away from San Francisco and Pierre Garcon out of Indianapolis.

Should the team sign Royal as well, Santana Moss will have to start worrying about his roster spot.

    Eddie Royal should enjoy the super accurate passes from the great one RGIII. A good start for the new era Redskins if Eddie joins the new crop of receivers.

    i think they keep santana. if he’s cool with playing a smaller role he can still be dangerous when he’s on the field. anthony armstrong, donte stallworth, david anderson, brandon banks might be looking at new homes soon though.

    Eddie Royal will look Pro Bowl caliber playing in practice against CB DeAngelo Hall (again).

    Mortons? They should have taken him to Blackies! This franchise can’t do anything right!

    As a Redskins fan, it’s going to feel like they sold the team and started over a few months later.

    Trust me Santana santana is good money ! If Eddie Royal replaces Moss then Moss doesn’t deserve to be in the league at all.

    P.s. what about them moves the 9ers are making …?! ;) moss and maybe B. Lloyd at WR, resigning Rogers, and getting a solid nickel CB in Cox. Looking at Eric wright at CB. 9ers gonna on the NFC!!

    CRAP! Blackies is closed! Please disregard my last message, I guess mortons is the best they have in DC now. RIP Blackies Steakhouse. :-(

    I’m really excited to see how they make having four number two receivers work.

    @mianfr watch Saints tape, they’ve been doing it since Brees got there.

    Do not get rid of Santana Moss, he is still very very dangerous, would be stupid to. Do not get rid of Brandon Banks, that guy is super dangerous as a kick and punt returner and will be very dangerous running around in the backfield with RG3 wildcat/option style, look out for that one. I like all of these signings and as a Redskins and VT fan I’m excited. I love what the Redskins are doing. Danny is finally letting the GM and HC make the football decisions. If it was the old Dan S way we’d already of signed TO and Randy Moss by now and maybe Manning (risky with health issues). Love the new gameplan… Hail!

    Did he order his steak well done?

    unless they have faith in Hankerson as a big possession WRs get me some tall people please

    Man I was hoping the Pats would get Royal. Oh well. Maybe they get Jabs back instead.

    Do the Skins realize they can’t run 9 WR’s? Just have a Center, RGIII in the shotgun and 9 guys out wide….. nice

  19. mpayne12 says: Mar 14, 2012 8:50 AM

    Garcon, morgan, royal, gaffney, hankersen I hate to say it but its starting to look like moss is the odd man out here :( Hope its not true cause moss was a true skin. And a cowboy killer.

    Uhh… Eddie Royal has only been in the league for 4 seasons this upcoming would be his 5th. I say this because someone posted that he has his best years with Shanahan, but Shanahan was fired at the end of the 2008 season. So one year if that… Eddie Royal cant stay on the field since his rookie year. By the way, he hasnt signed with the Redskins yet and probably wont since they’ve already signed Garcon and Morgan smh at some of these social networks.

    I was starting to have thoughts about the Skins having another losing season. But with some of the moves they made I expect them to be competitive not Super Bowl contenders but not a team u go against an easy win. Good moves Skins. In a couple years we should be ready to compete.
