Redskins OLB Ryan Kerrigan nearly recovered from knee surgery
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan appears to be on target to join the team for training camp after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery that prevented him from participating in earlier offseason activities.

Kerrigan, who registered a career-high 13 1/2 sacks a year ago, had the operation to alleviate pain in the area.

"My leg feels really good and I'm glad I got the surgery - not just for football but it makes my everyday life feel better so I'm glad I got it done," he told CSN Washington. "Now it's just a matter of getting stronger and getting into shape."

Kerrigan added that he's been running and now only needs to regain strength to insure his place at training camp.

Redskins' David Amerson looks to win back starting job
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

After a sub-par 2014 season, Redskins cornerback David Amerson is no longer expected to be a starter. Bashaud Breeland and free agent pickup Chris Culliver have knocked Amerson down to a nickelback role. 

Amerson lost the job after a season in which he indecisive and lacked aggression, he admitted to the Washington Post. Amerson didn't record an interception and had just seven pass breakups. 

“At the end of the day, that’s all it comes down to: just making plays. That’s the thing I felt like I was missing last year: being that big play-maker, game-changer,” Amerson said. “I basically had been that all my life, but it was different for me last year. It was unusual for me. So I need to get back into my groove and just find my swag. … Like I said, I’ve been that all my life, and always had that – I wouldn’t call it a gambling type of mentality – but knowing when to go and make that play, when to step up. It’s something I think a lot of people naturally have in them, and knowing when to bring it out. I just have to have that mindset.”

Redskins WR Pierre Garcon determined to rebound in 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It's one thing for veteran wideout Pierre Garcon to desire a more prominent role in the Redskins offense this season. It's another thing for him to go out and prove it.

And that's what Garcon has done in the offseason. He has not missed a voluntary practice and was stellar at minicamp.

"I'm impressed [with] Pierre," Jay Gruden told the Washington Post. "Pierre has been here every day, working his tail off, doing a great job."

Wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard was even more effusive in his praise.

"Can't say enough good things about him," he said. "He's a pro's pro - a guy you model your game after if you're a young pro; a guy you pick his brain ... You watch him work; you process the game - or try to process the game the way he does. The consummate pro."

Hilliard caught 68 passes for 752 yards in 2014, a year after racking up a career-high 1,346 yards receiving for Washington.

Redskins safety Jeron Johnson embracing new mentality
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

There is no comparison these days between the Seahawks and Redskins. So former Seattle and current Washington safety Jeron Johnson believes he must be careful not to push everything he learned from his old team onto his new one. He prefers to just transfer over what will help his teammates and himself.

Johnson is the lone member of the Redskins secondary that not only played for winning teams, but participated in the last two Super Bowls. He played behind the premier combination of Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas in Seattle. He is now a starter on a team that must improve greatly to contend for a title.

"I had to shake myself out of comparing everything to Seattle because I'm in a new situation," Johnson told ESPN. "I'd definitely love to have the success we had in Seattle. I bring a little knowledge I did obtain from Seattle. I just want to share the knowledge. I don't want to be Seattle. I want to have our own identity, but who wouldn't want to do the things they've done?

"So it's automatically, 'I did this in Seattle and in Seattle I did that.' I have to shake that whole mentality and get on with what the Redskins are doing now."

Johnson played in 15 of 16 games last season and finished with 12 tackles.
