Redskins bringing Joe Mays in for a visit

With players already lost to injuries in the early days of camp, the cycle begins for unemployed veterans.

According to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com, the Redskins are bringing in linebacker Joe Mays for a visit.

They’re running short after the loss of Keenan Robinson to his latest torn pectoral muscle.

Mays was dumped by the Broncos this week, and would be starting-caliber replacement for the Redskins.

    Joe Mays is the blue collar, people’s champ. As an Eagles fan, I would love to have him back in Philly.

    I fail to see how bringing in a starting caliber linebacker from a top tier team like the Broncos is “dumster diving.” I realize we as fans are passionate about our teams but this just sounds like hating

    They’re not looking for a starter Robinsonwas is a back up. So they are just looking for depth.

    That would be a good pick-up for the Skins but, a GREAT pick-up for the G-Men!!! We need the ‘backer help a lot more than the skins do!!!! Haha

    For a Mules fan aka Colts fan to start talking about a team dumpster diving when trying to sign a starting caliber MLB when your team just signed a rugby player is pretty pathetic.

    Don’t be bitter Bronco fans….sounds like Von Miller is in the dumpster….

    In Denver, we call him the “Idiot Cannonball.”

    They lost a rotational third-string linebacker who has played maybe 40 snaps in his career and are considering replacing him with a five-year starter. Are we sure we all understand the words “dumpster” and “dive”?

    Mays plays very hard, and I wish him well…Im an old skool Bronco fan, and I tend to keep rooting for Bronco players, even after they’re gone!

    Mays is a great dude and did his best to try an become the “man” in the middle of Denver’s defense. He’s just a few steps too slow and can’t cover anyone if its asked of him. He’s a great backup and special teams guy tho. I’ll miss seeing him in the orange and blue. Good luck to him

    Ha! You downvote the dumpster diving comments but they’re right. Joe Mays is old and slow. Watch the Denver at New England game last season and you’ll see how slow he is.

    Also, he’s coming back from a season ending knee injury late in his career.

    @golfmijo He’s not a starting caliber linebacker. Denver hasn’t had a starting caliber middle linebacker since the great Al Wilson.

    Now that Mays is gone, 3rd year player Nate Irving from North Carolina State has his chance to shine.
    I’m happy for Irving after all he’s gone through to come back from that awful crash. He displayed his first round talent last preseason.

    As a Bronco fan whenever I hear the name Mays, I can’t help but picture Matt Schaubs ear nearly ripped off. Man that hit will stay with me for a while in the top ten. Great guy on and off the field. Am I the only bronco fan out there who thought the release was a little questionable?

    This guy can lay the wood

    It doesn’t matter if Joe Mays is old and slow, he’s replacing a guy who’s young and slow and has trouble reading the offense and changing direction.

    That said, all the best to Keenan Robinson, good luck with rehab, and I hope he can develop into a starting caliber player in the future.

    Your talking about one game for starters, one game does not sum up a guys career. .you don’t have to be fast its about being in good postions to make a play, zero blitz can make anybody fast..haslett scheme will utilize the kids potential the way he was never used, that’s even if he makes the team because for once skins have depth at ever postion, no worries here.
