One thing he doesn't like is Clinton Portis as a teammate. Though no rumblings have come out of the Redskins' locker room about him, more than a few around the league view him as possible trouble. That hasn't happened yet, but some are waiting to see how he handles another year like last year.
Those aren't the only things some don't like.
''They've had no plan and no patience and I hear they don't have any confidence in Patrick Ramsey,'' he said. ''And they said a year ago that they had a three-year plan and now they can't even get it into Year Two. . . . The guy they brought in from Jacksonville [Bill Musgrave] is no guru. He got fired from there and he quit in Carolina and his offense was not innovative. I've got a feeling this thing isn't going right.''
. . . But don't expect the players to hang their heads after the departure of Fred Smoot. At least one defensive player liked what he saw in Garnell Wilds last season -- and this person likes Walt Harris as a starter, too.
This defender called Wilds a ''playmaker'' and was confident he could be a capable nickelback this season. That is, if the Redskins don't draft a corner.
. . . According to NFLdraftscout.com, the Redskins are interested in San Diego State outside linebacker Matt McCoy, likely in the fifth or sixth round. He's expected to visit Redskins Park soon.
