ASHBURN, Va. Nike Air Jordan 11 Retro Mens . -- The Washington Redskins struggling defense hopes it has found some answers at safety -- or at least some solid help after signing veteran Donte Whitner?shortly after adding another free agent at the position, Josh Evans.Both players were on the field Wednesday for the Redskins. Whitner, a three-time Pro Bowler, is the headliner because of his reputation. He was the No. 8 pick by Buffalo in the 2006 draft before signing with San Francisco in 2011.He spent the past two years with Cleveland, but he was released by the Browns in April -- something that still doesnt sit well with Whitner.The way they released me and waited so long to do it, someone had a personal vendetta, Whitner said. I dont know who it was.He added that the Cleveland slight will add fuel to his fire.?I always played the game with a chip on my shoulder, but it adds to it, Whitner said. To get slapped in the face with a release like that on the last day of free agency before you report to offseason training, its a slap in the face. If I was sleepwalking or anything before, Im definitely woke now and ready to play the game.Whitner was not in any teams camp this summer, though he did have workouts with other teams. Whitner recently had tweeted that both Carolina and Los Angeles offered him a contract. He reiterated those claims Wednesday, saying he turned down a multiyear deal with the Rams because he wanted a one-year deal to prove himself. Whitner also said he worked out for the Giants on Sunday.The Redskins needed more safety help, as their starters entering the season both are now on injured reserve. David Bruton Jr. was placed on injured reserve Wednesday after suffering a concussion in Sundays victory over the Cleveland Browns.On Tuesday, a source said the Redskins wouldnt be signing Whitner, but because of Brutons situation, they needed additional help at defensive back.A week earlier, safety?DeAngelo Hall had suffered a season-ending ACL tear in his knee.The Redskins also have a converted cornerback, Will Blackmon, starting at safety, plus Duke Ihenacho and Deshazor Everett.The Redskins need Whitner to provide leadership and hitting skills. He is known for his physical style, and the Redskins defense has missed too many tackles -- the past two games in particular. Theyve allowed a combined 248 yards after contact the past two games, according to ESPN Stats & Information.Evans was a sixth-round pick by Jacksonville in 2013, but he was released by the Jaguars in their final cuts. He worked out for Washington last week.The Redskins also released defensive end Kendall Reyes earlier in the day. Air Jordan Retro 11 For Sale Cheap . Now tied for second in the league in shootout goals, the 24-year-old likes to see what the opposing goaltender has in store before he ultimately lands on a move. Air Jordan 11 Buy Online . Defenceman Yannick Weber scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Canucks breathed a sigh of relief with a 2-1 win on Saturday night. http://www.efsfl.com/ . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. Ken Griffey Jr. has a different game to watch during the World Series.The newly inducted member of the Baseball Hall of Fame can certainly be forgiven for having his attention elsewhere Saturday night.

He also played four years for the Cubs.- TREY GRIFFEY, Arizona, senior wide receiver.Son of KEN GRIFFEY JR., who played for three teams over 22 MLB seasons (1989-2010).Instead of highlight catches in the outfield, Trey has 17 receptions for 305 yards and a touchdown this season. His 17.9 yards per catch leads the Wildcats.Junior, inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame earlier this year, was a 13-time All-Star center fielder who won 10 consecutive Gold Gloves (1990-99). He hit 630 home runs in his career, including a game in September 1990 when he and his father hit back-to-back homers while playing together for Seattle.- KENNY HILL, TCU, junior quarterback.Son of KEN HILL, who played for seven teams over 14 MLB seasons (1988-2001).The younger Hill succeeded Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M and had a single-game school record 511 yards passing in his first start. He later transferred to TCU, where after having to sit out last season he is now second in the Big 12 with 357 total yards a game.Ken Hill was a National League All-Star in 1994 with the Montreal Expos, when the right-handed pitcher had 16 wins in the strrike-shortened season the year his son was born.

He went to the playoffs eight times with three teams (Minnesota Twins, Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers). He was a .277 career hitter and had 353 homers.- PATRICK MAHOMES, Texas Tech, junior quarterback.Son of PAT MAHOMES, who played for six teams over 11 MLB seasons (1992-97, 1999-2003).Mahomes was an eye-popping 52-of-88 passing in his last game against No. 16 Oklahoma, matching the FBS record with 734 yards passing and breaking the total offense mark with 819. He is the national leader with 473 yards passing a game, nearly 100 more than the next-closest player. He gave up baseball last spring to concentrate solely on football.Right-hander Pat Mahomes was 42-39 with a 5.47 ERA in 308 career games (63 starts) for the Twins, Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Rangers, Cubs and Pirates. He was part of the 1999 NL playoffs with the Mets.- DANTE PETTIS, Washington, junior wide receiver/punt returner.Son of GARY PETTIS, who played for four teams over 11 MLB seasons (1982-92).Dante shares Washingtons career record with four punt returns for touchdowns.
