Redskins | Want Brian Orakpo rushing more

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 11:04:24 -0700

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he wants LB Brian Orakpo rushing the quarterback more often this season. "We want to get Brian rushing more than he has in the past, especially on third down," Gruden said. "Turn him loose, meaning also that when he has his hand down and he's rushing, he needs to rush. There's sometimes he's just peeking around and not getting up the field. Brian Baker ... will help him out quite a bit."

Redskins | May not sign Brian Orakpo to new deal

Wed, 26 Mar 2014 11:13:31 -0700

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden indicated the team may allow LB Brian Orakpo to play under the franchise tag tender next season in order for the coaches to evaluate him before the team gives him a long-term deal. "We'd like to get him here for as many years as we can, but right now I wouldn't mind letting him play out this franchise tag and see what happens," Gruden said. "He's a talented player. I think he can do a little bit better. [We] can ask more of him where he could be more productive as far as getting his hand down and rushing more instead of dropping [into pass coverage] quite so much. We have high hopes for Brian and whether the deal gets done or not, we know he'll be a big part of our success [in 2014]."
