ASHBURN, Va. - Head down, flip-flops sliding with a noisy reluctance across a concrete path, a Redskins media person striding at his side like a chaplain, Donovan McNabb resembled a death-row inmate on his last walk as he moved slowly toward an outdoor podium Wednesday morning. Swing low, sweet chariot, the NFL schedule was comin' for to carry him home. No last-minute call from the governor, not even Eagle Ed Rendell, was going to get the Redskins quarterback a reprieve from this sentence.

          Running back, 6-foot, 212 pounds Chosen by: Washington Redskins, sixth round, 177th overall. Skinny: Penn State's all-time leading rusher went to high school in Fairfax County, Va., only a few miles from Redskins Park.    He got off to a rocky start in his conference call with Redskins reporters, saying he was "originally a Cowboys fan," that his "favorite times with the Redskins was when they got Deion Sanders," and that he's "excited to be in there with McNabb," even though Donovan McNabb isn't expected back next season.

Washington Redskins all-pro safety Sean Taylor, one of the best at his position in the NFL with a physical, punishing style of play, was in critical condition yesterday at a Miami hospital after being shot by an intruder in what appeared to be a home invasion or attempted robbery. The shooting occurred about 1:45 a.m. yesterday at Taylor's home in the Palmetto Bay section of Miami. Local police said Taylor, 24, and his girlfriend heard noises from the rear of the home, and Taylor went to investigate.

The Washington Redskins were reeling yesterday, trying to deal with the death of Pro Bowl safety Sean Taylor. Taylor, 24, died early yesterday morning, little more than a day after being shot in his Miami-area home, the victim of an apparent robbery attempt or home invasion. Taylor was shot once in the leg and suffered a significant loss of blood, with the bullet severing his femoral artery. After seven hours of surgery Monday morning, there were signs of hope Monday evening when Taylor appeared to respond to commands to squeeze his doctor's hand and move his own eyes.

Jeremiah Trotter, Washington's biggest off-season signing, displayed his new burgundy and gold No. 54 jersey for the cameras at Redskins Park yesterday. The former Eagles Pro Bowler, signed as a free agent last week, said the chance to face his old team twice a season was one reason he chose the Redskins. He will get his first shot Sept. 16, on Monday Night Football. The other game is Dec. 15. "That Monday night game is going to be a very special one for me," he said.

The Swedish Bikini Team parachuted into Redskins Park yesterday. Instead of picking at the bottom of the NFL draft, as the God of Parity intended defending Super Bowl champions to do, the Washington Redskins exchanged that pick, plus the No 6 they acquired from San Diego last year, and (better sit down for this, Norman) selected Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard, of Michigan. Remember the old Ray Charles lyric, "Them That Gots Is Them That Gets?" Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke had to be humming it after the shrewd trade with Cincinnati that assured his team a shot at Howard.

The Washington Redskins moved quickly in their pursuit of Mike Shanahan yesterday, flying in the former Denver Broncos coach on the same day the team fired Jim Zorn. Shanahan and wife Peggy landed at Dulles International Airport near Redskins Park in midafternoon and were driven away in a limousine to meet with owner Dan Snyder and general manager Bruce Allen. Snyder planned for Shanahan to stay overnight at the owner's house in Maryland, and a formal hiring announcement could come as early as today.

Washington Redskins place-kicker Brett Conway's career could be over because of a torn leg muscle. Conway hurt his leg kicking a field goal in the first half of the Redskins' 31-23 victory over Arizona on Sunday. He arrived at Redskins Park yesterday holding a large white envelope that contained his MRI exam results. "It shows a lot of tears in it," Conway said. "It's probably the worst I've seen. " The Eagles visit Washington next Monday night. The tears are in the quadriceps muscle, and it's the fourth major injury in Conway's career.

Andy Heck walked in the front door of Redskins Park yesterday. After examining his own desire and deciding whether his degenerating back could take it, Heck has returned for another season with the Washington Redskins, even though he is not expected to start for the first time in his career. Heck, entering his 12th season at age 33, has had back problems since he was a rookie. It gets worse every year, and a flare-up a month ago kept him home in Chicago as his teammates started camp.

Less than five days after the Eagles released DeSean Jackson, the Pro Bowl wide receiver signed a three-year contact with the Redskins, according to an NFL source. "It's going down!! Burgundy and Gold," Jackson posted on Twitter. Jackson's three-year contract for $24 million comes with $16 million fully guaranteed, a source confirmed. It is a good deal under tough circumstances. The agreement was reached late Tuesday night after a day of negotiations and days of speculation about where Jackson would land after the Eagles cut their top receiver.

ASHBURN, Va. - Eleven days after, the furor over Donovan McNabb's benching is dying down. No one could remember a veteran quarterback being told to take a seat in the final 2 minutes of a winnable game, certainly not for an undistinguished backup like Rex Grossman. No one could remember a veteran coach offering up such a kaleidoscope of clumsy explanations, as Mike Shanahan did. The initial reaction was loud. Time and the NFL schedule, though, march on. In some ways, McNabb has never been surrounded by such a wealth of good feelings as the quarterback scorned; pretty much everyone toting a microphone has taken his side.

ASHBURN, Va. - Mike and Susan Sacks used to be devout Eagles fans. Cheered when their team won, gnashed their teeth when it lost. That all changed on Easter Sunday, though, when the Birds traded Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins. Now, the Sacks - who live in Coplay, a small town just north of Allentown - sing "Hail to the Redskins" rather than "Fly, Eagles, Fly. " They made the 4-hour drive yesterday morning to watch their new favorite team and their old favorite quarterback.

Washington needed the audacity to change the culture of its football team and did so with sweeping alterations. There's a new coach, new quarterback, new coordinators and a new general manager that will try to bring the pride back to the burgundy-and-gold. The parts are surely there to improve on last year's dismal 4-12 season. Bringing them together, and healing any damage inflicted by disgruntled defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth in the offseason, will be the primary tasks of Mike Shanahan's first training camp as Redskins coach.

For the first time in 11 years, Donovan McNabb was on a practice field surrounded by jerseys that weren't green or white. But just 2 weeks after being acquired from the Eagles, McNabb is already a leader of the Washington Redskins. "He's a natural leader," said Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, who traded a second-round selection in this week's draft and a third- or fourth-rounder in 2011 for McNabb. "He's got charisma. He enjoys practicing. He enjoys the game. The way he practices, the way he handles himself, there's a sense of urgency.

The Washington Redskins were of two minds yesterday morning as they returned from Easter weekend to resume their offseason conditioning workouts. The players were pumped that their NFC East-rival Eagles had given them an unexpected gift in six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb, but there was also sadness for incumbent quarterback Jason Campbell, a beloved and respected teammate who likely will depart Washington soon. "I was very shocked when I heard about the trade," said Lorenzo Alexander, who has moved from defensive line to outside linebacker in new coordinator Jim Haslett's 3-4 scheme.

Albert Haynesworth walked into the lobby of Redskins Park on the first day of free agency. After being congratulated by front-office chief Vinny Cerrato, the All-Pro defensive tackle turned and introduced his mother. Once the pleasantries were done, the parties went to work - completing the paperwork on a 7-year contract with the Washington Redskins that is worth about $100 million and includes an NFL-record $41 million in guaranteed money. "With the contract, it's going to be all on me," Haynesworth said at a news conference.
