[quote=Skinny Tee;449825]You have to love this time of year when people think that our entire draft class is going to contribute on the field this coming year and not be a liability in any way.

I too use to have that but then saw many seasons go by where people after the 2nd round have a hard enough time making the team, let alone playing every down.[/quote]

I wouldn't be suprised to see the top 3 picks combine for 30 receptions and nobody else see anything other than ST duty this year. But, I've been beating that horse in other posts since April so....

James is not worth a look. I think some of the reason he was cut was financial (why pay the 4th DE on your team 1st rounder money) but I doubt he'll find a team before the preseason injuries mount for some team.

he'd be a better backup than what we have currently, and would be dirt cheap, so there's no real risk.

Remember when people were upset when we didnt take this guy with our 1st round pick?

That said -- hes good depth, and cheap. At this point we can afford to take maybes at that position.

Then why wait to cut him until he failed a physical? It's not like it matters in terms of the salary cap?

Would you cut Chris Wilson or Demetric Evans? I think both of those guys have done more than James [I]in the NFL[/I].

you don't have to cut either. we haven't even gotten to a pre season game yet, and the scrubs we signed as FAs are terrible longshots.

are we that thin, that we want to pick up a guy that cant even pass a physical? lets at least look at players that can at least get on the field

I would give him the vet minimum problem. Maybe he needs a change

right
my bad, got some names mixed up. The skins looked hard at Brown in 2000 when we had the 2 & 3 overall picks & got Lavar & Samuels instead.

Brown went #1 overall though, so the Skins never had the option of taking him.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Evans and Wilson are currently better than the one knee James.
James has two ACL replacement surgeries on the same knee with in two years.. ..not good. Pius he is an undersized speed pass rush DE, so having a bad knee pretty much takes away his strength (speed). I would not touch the guy.

I just saw on Redskins.com that we TRADED for James. A conditional 7th round pick. Wasn't he cut? That's BS. Only the Redskins could trade for a player that was cut. Also, what does that mean for salary? Instead of picking him up as a FA and giving him a vet. minimum, are we now liable for the rookie 1st Round salary that he's supposed to get paid? Anyone know what that is? This doesn't smell right...

At least we only gave up a conditional 7th round pick. Just don't think he will be healthy enough to help.

Has he taken or passed team physical?
