Redskins brass dined with free agent Eddie Royal on Tuesday night

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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!!

  5. 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!

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
