When the Redskins took the field for their last minicamp weekend, there was a new number at running back: 26. And it belonged to Portis, who had been trying to get it from Ohalete since being traded to the Redskins.
Ohalete wasn't pleased that the team let Portis hold it up at his initial press conference. But he obviously must have relented. We're not sure what the terms of the deal are, but we can now sleep safely that it's been resolved.
For the record, Ohalete now wears No. 30 -- Trung Canidate's old number.
. . . Practice was only open for the first 30 minutes, during which time the team mostly stretches and does individual drills.
. . . One special teams drill I like involves players working in tandem on outside punt blocking against the flyer. Two players would hold onto either side of a long towel and try to stay in front of the flyer. If nothing else it teaches them to keep up with their teammate.
. . . Brandon Noble continues to look good coming back from his serious knee injuries.
. . . Former tight end Doc Walker watched from the sidelines.
