Default Jeremiah Johnson released by Redskins

According to Rotoworld...just making note of the former Texan.

" James Davis will take Jeremiah Johnson's spot on the Redskins practice squad.

That was short-lived, as Johnson was signed less than 12 hours ago. The Redskins evidently like the upside of Davis more than that of Johnson."

Since Slaton may not play this next game it may be a good pick up for us...

At least as a practice squad edition...

How his preseason wasn't enough to warrant a spot here...I just don't know.

He has probably not rehabbed/recovered from his dislocated toe.

100% agree timekiller - He played very well when given the opportunity. He has a knack for letting his blockers set up before hitting the hole. At first I thought he wasn't really running at full tilt until I watched a bit more of him and realized he is just more patient than most and probably lacks the burst of a first team back.

If his toe is not dislocated anymore I would like to see him resigned by the Texans. And then the Texans cut Slaton.

Like Foster, he also ran this zone scheme in college......Oregon is notorious for their zone scheme (which is why I was really high on Unger when he came out), it's the reason why they're starting to turn out good RBs at the next level. (Jonathan Stewart and now LeGarrette Blount in TB...who I still think the Texans should've taken a late round flier on).

During the preseason J. Johnson was easily our second best back and who I think (if healthy) could be signed and step in and be our second best back. Like Foster he gets every yard available and sets up his blocks very well.

We don't know all the details on the toe injury, but if he's healthy I hope we sign him. With that position it only takes one injury to make what was a strength on your team into a weakness. We still have 10 more games to play and if Foster goes down all we have is old man Ward and Steve "Dude, where's my game?" Slaton.

Didn't know that he went to Oregon and is familiar with our scheme - makes perfect sense that he would look so comfortable in it though.

I've believed for some time that Jeremiah Johnson will prove to be a "better Steve Slaton". We need to get him back here somehow. With Foster & Ward you have two big guys who can carry the load and Johnson is the perfect guy for that change-of-pace 3rd down role.

Agreed. If he had not hurt his toe I think he'd be our second back.

I agree. If something like that were to happen 8 weeks from now, & we go looking for a RB, and JJ is sitting on his couch, fat from eating Marshmallows all day.... that would suck.

Makes more sense to put him on the PS (I don't believe we have a RB on the PS now) Keep him healthy for the year.

Next year, deal Slaton & decide to resign Ward or move JJ into the rotation.

He's just got the coolest name....

He's short (5'9") but at 218lbs, there ain't nothing small about him. He's a big back, just like Ward.

I still think he would be a great change of pace back though, because his style is so different from Ward or Foster. The way he uses his blockers, very nice.

We won't be able to trade Slaton until the end of the season anyway, so his value now doesn't matter. He needs to get involved on gameday, break off a few good plays.... sky's the limit, kids got talent.
