The one year contract is not a problem as you should know by now. We trade for guys with only a 1 year contract all the time. As for his injury problems you might have a point, But I still think a deal could be done. And no one said we need great value.

ramsey got a 6th, lloyd (who was owed a 1st) got a 3rd and 4th. Gardner got a 6th. 1 year deal = nuked trade value.

If we packaged next years number 1 and Betts we might end up with a 1st rnd pick to go with our pick at 53. Then we could address both LB & CB in the 1st and 2nd.

Or if the Jets end up as the team we with the most interest we could wait until Rnd 2 @ 35 and only give up next years 2nd. I say again I would hate to see Betts go but I really feel we are going to lose him anyway next year. And between Rock, Lumsford, and Nemo we should be ok at the Back-up RB spot.
This scenario is not viable. Portis has a tendency to miss a few plays here and there and I would not feel good with Rock as the #2. He fumbles it too much. Betts has the talent to be a starter and he isn't bad running kicks back. RB is an area where you need quality depth.

Re: Gerald Riggs Jr. A Redskin?

i was watchin some tapes of when spurrier was the HC, and rock wasnt all that bad as running back, i actually liked him when he took snaps, he was solid. id take rock over betts anyday, it jst seems like betts doesnt know what to do after he gets to the 2nd level, he never has big runs. rock cartwright is a stud......not to mentiion they always sow the hit when lofa tatupu laid betts out......that was vicious

Re: Gerald Riggs Jr. A Redskin?

we wouldn't have locked rock up for 4 years if we didn't plan on using him.

The Rock is a great special teams guy but as the back up to a number 1# running back if he gose down NO!!! He will never be the number one back on the Redskins for any time if we wanted another Super Bowl win!!! As for Riggs Jr I saw some of what he did in college and so so. What he can do in the NFL is a big question as well. Still in round 5 maybe lighting may strike!

I agree whole heartedly. And I am not saying that I want to trade Betts. I am only saying that If we were to draft Gerald Riggs Jr. the only way we would is if we made room for him by trading someone. The only RB with value other than Portis is Betts. I also believe we are going to be pleasantly surprised by Jesse Lumsden. I think between He and Rock we will have better than avg back-up at the RB position.

if you're somehow saying that drafting riggs in the 5th would make it okay to ditch betts, but its somehow not okay otherwise, that's crazy...

Was it as nasty as Betts taking out the Cowgirl with the rib shot? I doubt it because I don't distinctly remember it...

Re: Gerald Riggs Jr. A Redskin?

Boys Boys.......Taking Riggs in thr 5th or 6th is not a bad move if he is thought to have something. Betts,Cartwright or who ever other then Portis is going to have to make the team this summer! Lets say that they see something in Riggs that he can be our next good or even great running back. Do you pass because you have some so so backs already on your team? No you make the pick then see how it works out. Because you never have to much talent and runningback is a place you need it most! Before you say I think Riggs is the next coming I am not. But if he is you can't pass it up and to tell the truth we are do to hit a starter in the late rounds.
