The Washington Redskins wrapped up mandatory minicamp June 12, one day earlier than scheduled, and the team now moves into its version of a "summer recess." During this time, coaches will meet to address problems remaining with the team and the best course of action to have them resolved before Week 1.
Players will still participate in weight lifting and position meetings at Redskins Park, while the coaching staff will continue to evaluate and assess which players to retain to best complete the 53-man roster.
This six-week "summer recess" concludes when the team's official training camp begins July 25 in Richmond, Va.
While the coaching staff ultimately looks to trim the roster, earlier this week the Redskins announced they signed two veteran wide receivers—Donte' Stallworth, who left the Redskins in 2011, and Devery Henderson, according to NFL.com.
With the conclusion of mandatory minicamp, the Redskins had their last scheduled press conferences Wednesday. Head coach Mike Shanahan, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan each addressed questions from the media.
Over the next few months, the Redskins have five pressing issues that merit much-needed attention prior to the start of the 2013 NFL season.
