The Washington Redskins head into the 2013 NFL season with a lot of hype and expectations. While a list of players fuels the core of the team, a number of role players are looking to contribute as well.
Some of those players are household names, and others have maybe never been heard of before. A player may only be given one shot to make a name for himself. That opportunity must be taken full advantage of before it's too late.
The Redskins' first preseason game comes on August 8 against the Tennessee Titans. That's the first chance players will get to show coaches and football fans everywhere just what they can do. Before long, the team will be cut down to 53 men, making up the opening day roster.
The season is young and filled with unknowns as August is just now getting underway. In a span of five or six months, look for these faces to up the ante and take their games to new heights. They may be difficult to find now, but before long, all NFL teams will have an eye on them.
