Drafting a safety.

How does everyone feel about trying to get an athletic safety who's known for his coverage with a late roud draft pick? As everyone knows, this team has some serious issues at that position. I think it's a good idea because Archuletta sucks, Vincent is getting old, Prioleau is about 30 now, I'm not sold on Fox being a starter, and if we move Springs to safety, we all know how injury prone he is. There's a lot of good safeties in the NFL who were not taken in the first round.

Re: Drafting a safety.

Only 26 or 27 I believe. That's just entering the prime of his career. Honestly, it wasn't even an issue for two seasons. I think it's the problems up front causing the problems in back.

Re: Drafting a safety.

I don't know how much he is going to command, but what about going after Ken Hamlin of the Seahawks?

Re: Drafting a safety.

I really like Reggie Nelson from UF. He has the speed, he can hit, and he can actually catch INT's. But he's not good enough to draft at 6. The only way we get him is if we trade down.

He's good, but he'd be overpriced, and I think he's kinda old (correct me if I'm wrong). However, that would definitely seem like the typical FA signing for the Redskins. I'd rather not sign any FAs this year, unless a good value presents itself.

If he is overpriced I'd like the Skins to show a little fiscal responsiblity.

I think Hamlin is not too old - he is 25 and has been in the NFL for 4 years - although I believe he had a severe head injury so I would not throw a lot of money at him.....

Re: Drafting a safety.

Hamlin is only 26 Seattle Seahawks - Team But, I don't think we should go after him because, and I could be wrong about this, I believe that he known more as a big hitter than a cover guy. His nick name is "Hitstick Hamlin." We already have a big hitter. I'd rather go after a guy in the draft. I would not be opposed to trading up draft picks, there seem to be a lot of good defensive linemen that we can get anyway.

That's the optimal situation. I think he's under contract which might command some kind of trade.

He lost his starting job this year so he could be cut.

Well its not like he would go for anymore than a late round pick, and I'm fine trading a 6th or 7th away for Clark.

If Clark is let go by the Steelers, could there be a bigger no-brainer in the world?

Bottom line: he worked well with ST, they communicated well, and they got results. He knows how we do things. F Ken Hamlin, F drafting somebody, F paying anybody a lot of money... if Clark is available, he should be our #1 target, hands down.

Sorry but you're dead wrong. If he's cut after June 1 we would save about $600k this year with approx. $7M hitting us in dead cap next year.

It can be done very easily.
