What Was That About the Washington Redskins Not Needing Terrell Owens?

At least he shows up to practice, unlike the entire corps of Washington Redskins receivers.

Starters Santana Moss (Florida) and Antwaan Randle El (Illinois) are often working out at home this time of year, and fellow veteran James Thrash has been at the NFL Players Association meetings in Maui as Washington’s player rep.

But whither youngsters Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly?

The pair of 2008 second-round picks combined for just 18 catches, 138 yards and no receiving touchdowns in their disappointing rookie seasons that began with them earning the scorn of coach Jim Zorn for their poor workout habits leading into training camp. So probably no Redskins need to be here more than Thomas and Kelly, but they’ve been absent.

See, that’s the thing you have to remember about the Redskins. They often have to overpay aging skill players, because they suck at the draft.

Hail indeed.
