As expected, the Redskins placed defensive ends Phillip Daniels and Alex Buzbee on injured reserve earlier today and re-signed defensive end J.T. Mapu, who had originally joined the team as a rookie free agent out of Tennessee on May 15.
Mapu (6-4, 290) had 65 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles during his four years with the Volunteers. He was classified as a "tryout" player at the club's minicamp in early May.
Now, let's return to our coverage of disgruntled Giants players. Wide receiver Plaxico Burress will show up for camp Thursday, but he's not happy about it. Check back at 6:35 p.m. ET for my take on the situation.
Oh, and if you're just joining us, welcome to the new NFC East blog. Hashmarks died peacefully in the night. Seats still available at the funeral.
Thanks for everyone who e-mailed this morning to ask what happened to the blog. It's basically been replaced by eight seperate blogs that will comprise the NFL Blog Network. I've really enjoyed visiting with you guys over the past year, and I hope some of you will hang around the NFC East blog.
