Monday Round-up

Well it was quite the weekend. I had a hell of a time Saturday night, flipping between the Caps, the speedskating finals, and of course the NBA All-Star festivities.

And all three were disappointments.

Apollo Ohno scored a silver thanks to some greedy South Koreans, the Caps managed to lose in a shootout and of course the Dunk contest was a washout. So much for my hard work with the remote.

Anyway, here's what's been going down on the web this weekend.

Darrell Green (my favorite athlete ever) ran a 4.43 40-yard dash today. Oh, and today happened to be his 50th birthday.

The 'Skins signed Justin Medlock to compete with Graham Gano for the placekicking job. Medlock is a left-footed kicker from UCLA who spent last year in the CFL.

Donte Whitner? The guy who the Bills reached for with their No. 8 pick in the first round in 2006 (and benched in 2008); he's coming to DC? That's what Hogs Haven says (however, Whitner still has a year left on his contract, and isn't worth trading for).

The National Football Post's Matt Bowen (a former Redskins' safety) thinks Jason Campbell deserves another shot as the starter (even if the 'Skins draft a QB, which he thinks wouldn't be a bad move).

And Rich Tandler might dislike the free agency rumors that always surround the Redskins, but they keep on popping up (this time it's Whitner and Karlos Dansby).
