I'm not the biggest Soriano guy, but not sure closer is the Nats biggest concern. Besides, they've got a few options. Like 3 of them.

Jason Whitlock on PTI: Nats "have one big glaring problem that will bite them in the rear end come playoff time. They don't have a closer."

As for the report about Hoyas-Terps in 2015 Gavitt Cup (BE v B10), JT3: "I have no idea. The conference offices will determine opponents."

Ben Standig

JT3: "All other years will be determined later and I definitely have not had any discussion about any other opponents past Towson." #Hoyas

Ben Standig

I spoke with JTIII about rumors that Hoyas will face UVa in 2015 BB&T. Georgetown making 1st appearance this year & will face Towson.

Mark Rypien said his induction will be Oct. 19 for the #Redskins' game against the Titans, which will also be the "homecoming" game.

Gruden called Ryan Clark "one of the greatest tacklers at the safety position in this league."

After Mark Rypien refers to Robert Griffin III as "Robert Griffith III," Griffin responds by thanking "Mark Ripken."

Fittingly, there is no special teams player of the year award.

Zac Boyer

Alfred Morris has been given the #Redskins' community service award, while Robert Griffin III receives the "Salute To Service" award.

Trent Williams and DeAngelo Hall have been named the #Redskins' offensive and defensive players of the year at the "Welcome Home Luncheon."

Carmelo says he's not "bitter" but "I know what I went through last year from an emotional standpoint & I don’t want to feel that again.”

Melo missed playoffs for first time in career last year. Says this year will be different for NYK: "I believe we will be in the postseason.”

Zac Boyer

Gruden said "it's hard to say" if Bowen would return for the start of the season. Needs to practice.

Zac Boyer

Gruden has no specific ties to any number of players at a certain position. The decision on how many players are taken will be after Tampa.

Zac Boyer

Thompson will be a game-time decision, Gruden said.

Zac Boyer

Gruden figures first cuts will take place Sunday. Deadline is Tuesday.

Zac Boyer

Seastrunk missed practice for personal reasons.

Zac Boyer

Porter is most likely out for Saturday with a hamstring strain.

Zac Boyer

Gruden said Moses will be the backup right tackle for the next two preseason games.
