[URL=http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/7136037]Redskins Sign DE[/URL]
Whats the deal on this guy, I dont know much about him.

They have been courting this guy for a couple of weeks now. Gibbs must like something in this 30 yr. old DE, or Williams likes him. Probably will come pretty cheap and overall his stats are not bad.
|Sadistic Jeff ||03-02-2004 01:54 PM |
He was signed here in Chicago after a promising start in Seattle. He never quite found his nitche here, and was injured a lot. Has potential if they can keep him healthy.

He had a lot of tackles (41) last year. Sounds like he is a good/cheap pick up. Typical of Gibbs defenses in the past Daniels will be a role player. Situational substions for our d-linemen this year.
|BrunellFan ||03-02-2004 02:16 PM |
He's worked with Greg Blache before, thats why he's eager to come here, and Blache obviously like him as well.

WP says, "According to sources (probably Vinney Cerrato) , the Redskins are a leading candidate to sign Tennessee's Jevon Kearse, one of the NFL's best pass rushers. Washington is also believed to be interested in defensive end Bertrand Barry of the Denver Broncos."
Bertrand Barry had 11.5 sacks last year. Along with Kearse, this should solve our pass rush problems.
|BrunellFan ||03-02-2004 02:31 PM |
I dunno about Kearse now.... we only really needed on DE, I thought Wynn does a fine job as long as good people are around him. We should have gotten Kearse and maybe a blue collar DT. Then we draft Tommy Harris or Sean Taylor in the draft and our defense is set.
No surprise here, I figured once this guy was released Snyder would be looking to snatch him up for Blache. Sounds like a solid vet for the DE rotation.
I hope we'll stay away from Kearse, but it's likely that Redskins One will be headed his way early on Wed.

Daniels is better than what is on the squad now but that is not setting the bar very high. The thing I like best about Daniels is that even when the Bears had been eliminated from the playoffs, he played hard.
I heard an inteview with Gibbs and he said that they needed to get some great players and some good people on the defense. Daniels is one of the "good people". He should help the defense improve.
|azskinsfan2 ||03-02-2004 07:51 PM |
Sounds very versatile too. Can play either DE or Tackle and doesn't care which as long as we win. Sounds like the type of player we need on this team!
And since Blache already knows what he can do, that's just an added bonus. And we wouldn't have gone after him if Blache didn't think he could get the job done.
|Hail to the Redskins ||03-02-2004 08:23 PM |
Although he sounds like a good, solid rotation guy to team with R. Wynn on one side (opposite J. Kearse...
I think it's kinda odd when a DE makes more million in salary than sacks he has when starting all 16 games...
Daniels is set to make 3 Million this year, and last year had a whopping 2.5 sacks.
Again.. he's a solid pick up, BUT... he's in his 30's and had his worst season last year under our current DC. Just debating the 3 million that's all.
|azskinsfan2 ||03-02-2004 08:33 PM |
Maybe that had something to with how he was utilized in the D. Bouncing position to position won't help your play much. When he started at one position, sounded like he did a great job.
|beg8878 ||03-02-2004 09:36 PM |
I didn't know too much about him but I have a few friends that are bears fans and they spoke highly of his heart and said he has some skills at D end and D tackle
|Ghost ||03-02-2004 09:36 PM |
Just say No to Kearse, JG!
