    Classic case of a guy with limited talent measurables but a non stop motor who doesn’t quit on any play. I like him and he’ll be a good player on any line rotation in the league

    Come back to the niners..we’ll put you on rotation like ole times

    Middle of the road player, but he was entertaining for sure. Best of luck Ricki.

    Smart guy, good dude. Owns 26 Dunkin’ Donuts franchises.

    Great guy but he was probably better fit for the 4-3 dance club.

    Abs they’re doing what with that 4 million? Just because a d line is awful you don’t have to get rid of all of them. The Redskins need more all-about-the-team guys, but they seem content to get rid of all of them. I would boycott the skins, but I doubt know what I round do on my Sundays.

    Does anyone know what’s going on in D.C.? I sure don’t.

    They did him a favor. Thank God that the Washington Ringling Brothers set you free. It’s a blessing.

    Geesh first our basketball coach and now an NFL defensive tackle . . . tough day for the Husky faithful.

    He was talking smack about the teams offseason mishandlings. The skins don’t have enough depth to part ways with him, no matter his talent.

    Wow so i guess every pick is gonna be a d line man. Baker francois. Allen needs to be shown the door

    He can co-star in Talladega Nights 2 with Will Farrell.

    Didn’t they just prove the point he was trying to make? Some team will be happy to have him.

    The Redskins can’t handle it when people speak the truth about their dysfunction. One of the worst run franchises in the NFL.

    McCloughan drafted him when he was 49er GM, acquired him again when he was Redskins GM. Soon after McCloughan was let go, he is cut. House cleaning.
