McIntosh and Rogers effect on player movement
 
Interesting article on the health status of Carlos Roger and Rocky McIntosh. The most significant part of it was how it relates to keeping Shawn Springs and not going after Lance Briggs.....

"Cornerback Carlos Rogers likely won't be healthy for the start of the season, but linebacker Rocky McIntosh will. Rogers' prolonged absence makes the retention of high-priced cornerback Shawn Springs more likely, while McIntosh's earlier return makes the signing of free agent linebacker Lance Briggs of the Chicago Bears less likely."

Good to hear about Rocky.

With Springs not getting any younger and Rogers not expected back until during the season I definitely think this bumps CB up to a pretty high priority for this offseason.

I heard on Sportstalk 980 that "Costly Corner Shawn Springs is staying with the burgundy and gold."

Lance Briggs has character issues as well. I'm not too hot on that. I think we should draft a corner as well.

The concern with Rocky is that this could become (if it hasn't already) a chronic problem with his knees, and in addition there are some concerns about Marcus Washington's health. And add to that Godfrey's possible retirement then I don't think Briggs is such a long shot. Though I think if forced to choose they are more likely to go after a WR in free agency/trade and draft a linebacker

As for Rogers. Well that combined with Springs' age is the main reason why I keep clamoring for Talib or Cason to be our first round pick.

Don't forget about H.B. Blades...he could provide depth in some way. I also think that finding a serviceable LB is not the hardest thing in the league today whereas finding CB depth is one of the hardest things to get. Also, if there are concerns about replacing Washington in the future, I think its realistic to expect to pick up a starting LB in the 2009 draft. I don't think an aging/oft injured Springs and an unimpressive/currently injured Rogers is our solution for the future at CB. I say defensively in this draft/offseason our top priorities should be:
1) a pass rushing DE
2) A starting CB
3) Another secondary member (either a CB or a safety that can play nickel/dime coverage and contribute on special teams)...hopefully groomed to be a starter down the line
4) Then if we have cap room or picks a backup LB.

Yeah it still wouldn't surprise me to see us go after Briggs regardless of Rocky's status.

Yeah I can't see Smoot and Springs holding up health wise for a full year.

One would think you'd hope for the opposite seeing as the Skins are your favorite team. I know most fans don't hope someone sucks so they can be let go.

somehow, Springs got over looked for the pro bowl. last year he had an all star caliber season. he was very good, and people were still talking about him moving to safety. it seemed like the respect he had for coach Gibbs kept him playing thru some of the smaller, nagging injuries that for a different coach may have sidelined him

I am keeping my fingers crossed that both of these guys can play this year and the Skins can address LB next offseason. I think that the main thing with Briggs is how much will he command on the market - if it is anything close to the $20 million in total bonus money he was looking for that was reported last year I just can't see us going after him with all of our other needs. Plus I would think that there are some other teams that may sound entincing to him compared to us - i.e. the Patriots LB's are getting old and if he had the chioce of us or the Patriots and the money was the same I don't know if the Skins could compete with Patriots.
