No deal for Joe Mays with Redskins

The Redskins are looking for some depth at inside linebacker in the wake of Keenan Robinson’s torn pectoral, but Joe Mays won’t be jumping into that role. 

Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com reports that Mays visited with the team on Saturday and left without a contract. Mays was released by the Broncos last week, saving the team $3.5 million under the cap that they could potentially use to find a player to help them survive the absence of linebacker Von Miller in the event Miller’s appeal of his four-game suspension fails. 

Mays has reportedly drawn interest from several teams since getting dumped by Denver, so the Redskins could potentially return to the picture as a landing spot if he’s unable to find the deal he’s looking for with another team. Mays spent the last three years with the Broncos, starting 21 times over his tenure. His 2012 season ended early because of a broken leg. 

The Redskins will be starting London Fletcher and Perry Riley at inside linebacker with Bryan Kehl and Roddrick Muckelroy currently making up the experienced reserve options.

    He didn’t have enough PED’s on him, that’s unacceptable in the Redskins organization..

    If he was smart he would’ve taken less money to win a SB this year with RG3. Could’ve made a name for himself.

    Glad they held the line and not overpay.

    Unlike the rest of you dummies… Mays just found out that the Redskins don’t overpay idiots off the streets anymore.

    I’m guessing he refused to take the roids.

    No one on the Redskins has been popp ed fur roids. One popped for taking ADD drugs when they were prescribed for him, another for taking Tylenol 3 after he had a tooth pulled, and the latest was popped because his supplement didn’t list all of the ingredients.

    Yeah, they are just all roided out. Keep up with the “wise donkey” remarks, they just make you look not so wise.

    I like all of the Redskins haters who take time out of their lives to make a .comment about a team that they hate.

    All you that are leaving comments about PED’S look very stupid. The suspended redskins were for pot, and a GNC over the counter product that me and you could go buy at the store. Some how people turned to trying to use comment sections as a smart ass reply section…well here’s food for thought…. If you wanna be a smartass don’t look like a dumbass doing it.

    as a broncos fan i’d tell ya he’s a liability in coverage, but he is a bad man when it comes to tackling and hits. a legitimate intimidator
