The Washington Redskins have hired one of their former quarterbacks to help decide roster moves.

58-year-old Doug Williams was hired Monday to become a personnel executive to work with general manager Bruce Allen on making roster decisions.

Williams, who last season was the head football coach at Grambling University, played with Tampa Bay and Washington in the NFL and also in the United States Football League (USFL).

From 1986-89, he was the Redskins signal-caller. Williams retired with a 5-9 record as Redskins starter (8-9, counting playoffs) and a 38-42-1 record as a regular season starter (42-45-1, including 7 playoff starts). He had 100 passing touchdowns, and 15 rushing touchdowns, in 88 NFL games.

He is considered to be one of the 80 Greatest Redskins of all-time.

NFL umpire Roy Ellison has been suspended by the league for one game without pay for making a “profane and derogatory statement to a Washington Redskins player.

The NFL announced on Friday that Ellison will not work a game this weekend as punishment for words directed at left tackle Trent Williams during last week’s Redskins’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Williams told league officials he was called vulgar names by Ellison and did nothing to provoke it.

Both Ellison and Williams are black.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has wasted no time at all in affirming that 2012 NFL Draft pick Robert Griffin III, is the team’s starting quarterback, “period.”

The Redskins wrapped up their rookie minicamp over the weekend by putting the Heisman Trophy winner and number-2 overall pick as the top QB on the depth chart.

Griffin is ahead of fourth-round pick Kirk Cousins and last year’s starter, Rex Grossman. The latter two will battle for second and third string spots.

RG3 picked up several other awards his final season at Baylor in 2011, was a concensus All-American, 1st team All-Big 12, Davey O’Brien Award and the Manning Award.

Browns trade up to 3rd spot to nab Alabama RB Trent Richardson

During the NFL off-season, Cleveland Browns fans had heard the name of QB Robert Griffin III as the player that the team coveted. But they were not going to beat the Washington Redskins out for his services at #2.

So, the Browns braintrust turned to trading their number-4 spot to the Minnesota Vikings to gain the third spot to get another need, a running back.

They drafted the best runner in the NFL Draft in Alabama’s Trent Richardson.

They weren’t going to let their next choice get away and traded three later round picks to the Vikings to get a playmaker for their anemic offensive attack. The Vikings received picks in the fourth round (# 118), fifth round (# 139) and the seventh round (#211).

Richardson is a dynamic and explosive running back who should help an offense who scored just four rushing touchdowns and 218 points in a 4-12 2011 season.

Eventhough Richardson is just 5-foot-9, 228-pounds, some media experts think that he could be the next Greg Pruitt in Cleveland at running back. He rushed for 1,679 yards last year at Alabama.

Some Browns fans were mad that the team did not address another need in the first round, wide receiver. The team passed up Julio Jones of Alabama and Justin Blackmon of Oklahoma State.
