The Washington Redskins could reunite defensive ends Phillip Daniels and Renaldo Wynn in '09, according to David Elfin of the Washington Times. Since Jason Taylor was released this week, the Redskins have been a little more focused on signing the 36-year-old Daniels. He was scheduled to start last season, but suffered a left knee injury in training camp, which prompted the club to sign Taylor.

Daniels is saying that the Redskins have approached the 34-year-old Wynn, who played a bit part for the Giants last season. The plan would be for Wynn and Daniels to rotate at left end.

But with all due respect to those players, it's not like they'll be feared by opposing quarterbacks. We'll see right away just how valuable defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth is. If the season started now, he'd be surrounded by far less talent than he had in Nashville.

The good news for Redskins fans is that Washington could land an elite pass-rusher with the No. 13 pick in the draft. Much, much more to come.
