...JaMarcus Russell visited Redskins Park today, but the team says don't read anything into that. Coach Joe Gibbs said they're just doing their ''due diligence.'' In other words, if some crazy scenario develops and Russell falls into their laps, they want to at least know something about him in depth.
They've also had Brady Quinn in town as well as Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson.
''It has nothing to do with Jason,'' Gibbs said.
''We've brought in every player who we felt was a first-round player. We brought in a studly running back. Does anyone think we're entertaining drafting a running back?
You do your homework. We feel settled at quarterback, but you do your homework. Should a certain set of circumstances arise, you have to be prepared.''
...The Redskins organized team activities begin May 8. No date has been set for the start of training camp, but look for it to be a couple days earlier than last year, but it won't be a big difference from years past.
...It's assumed that the Redskins would like to trade off the sixth pick in what many consider a draft that has five elite players. But it's not a given that they'll trade back; Gibbs acknowledged that it might be difficult to do that, so don't be surprised if there is real talk about them moving up.
