Daniel Snyder and the Washington Redskins organization have “started the process” of designing a new stadium to serve as the team’s home, according to Comcast SportsNet.
“Whether it’s Washington, D.C., whether it’s another stadium in Maryland, whether it’s a stadium in Virginia, we’ve started the process,” Snyder said.
“We are going to push forward. We’ve started meeting with architectural firms. We are in the process of developing because it is a long term that you do it.”
This is big news for the Redskins.
Today the Dallas Cowboys claimed Jemea Thomas the former sixth round draft pick of the New England Patriots in the 2014 NFL Draft.
In a corresponding move the team released wide receiver Tim Benford.

Alejandro Villanueva just wants an opportunity to live out his dream. After returning from Iraq as a United States Army Ranger, Villanueva enlisted in the Regional combine.
After an impressive showing the 6’7 defensive end was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles. Well today Villanueva worked out with the Pittsburgh Steelers, just a few days after being released by the Eagles.

This would be a feel good signing, but I cannot see him making the roster even if he is signed.

We just spoke to Stephen Godbolt a top 15 senior cornerback who played last season at Tennessee State, who confirmed he has transferred.
Stephen Godbolt IIi, has transferred to NAIA Webber International, in Florida.
Godbolt could have entered the Supplemental draft but he wanted to finish his college degree.
I spoke to Stephen who said he is excited to be playing again, and he hopes to suit up this Saturday.
Godbolt is a very solid player and will likely get a look from NFL teams.
With the first wave of roster cuts over, nearly 500 players have been made available for teams to either sign outright or claim on waivers.
