Reporting Grant Paulsen
Redskins center Casey Rabach was one of the Redskins who showed up at Redskins Park on Tuesday morning, just one day after the NFL lockout was officially lifted.
Rabach and many of his teammates were permitted to work out at the team’s complex for the first time since the end of the 2010 season (save for one day when the lockout was momentarily halted during the draft). The 33-year-old center and sixth-year Redskin is ready to start building cohesion along Washington’s offensive line.
“We speak a lot about continuity on the offensive line and that’s something you usually build during an offseason and through training camp,” Rabach said. “We have to kind of accelerate that this year. I’m just happy to see that Will and Kory are going to be next to me. Hopefully we can pick up that continuity where we left off last year where we felt like we were getting better at the end of the season.”
As for what he thinks about the Redskins’ quarterback position?
“Any time you don’t have a set in stone starting quarterback there’s going to be a lot of question about who’s going to be in that role,” he told reporters on a hot day at Redskins Park. ”I think John Beck has definitely stepped up in his leadership role this offseason, has worked tirelessly to put himself in the best position to win that job. It’ll be interesting to see who will be our starting quarterback.”
