Hamilton didn't seem to alway's have his head in the game , it was like he was lost in space sometimes

Is it me or does it seem like they are having trouble figuring out what to do at safety?

There is a big hole to fill there, one which won't ever fully be. I know doughty showed up in the last few games, and I am routing for him, but it seems like the position is up in the air. They have brought in several guys to tryout for the position, and have gone as far to say as they don't know yet where they'll line Landry up.

This makes me a bit nervous, but I figure it is still early in the offseason.

landry + a warm body is still a top flight safety duo. obviously it'll never be what we wanted, but it's really not something i'd spend too much time worrying about.

Justin Hamilton was more of a Justin Case. Chris Horton seems to know how to tackle, which means he'll serve as a close backup to Doughty.

Nothing to worry about. These type of moves happen all the time at this time of year. Guys get signed and then cut shortly after. Call it the shuffling of warm bodies.

I still think we're in good shape with Doughty. Call me a Doughty backer I guess, I think he's going to be fine.

Every time they sign a draft pick they will have to cut someone since they can only carry 80 on the off-season roster. Nothing to be concerned about.

I just had a rather general question...
When should we expect the Skins to sign any of their second round picks?

i think they are going to start to negotiate sometime next week. i heard that the team wanted to take a look at them during OTAs and see how things worked out. i'm hope we have no trouble signing them.

Re: Redskins Sign Chris Horton, Release Justin Hamilton
 
in regards to the safety issue, we have doughty and the newly signed schweigert, who even though was on the raiders (who was a top 10 D) last year, we are going to be competitive in that area. Both of the guys i just mentioned will never be a ST, but they will be much better than AA who we had 2 seasons ago. And with a similar defense in like we had last year, both of those guys should be adequate in what we need them to do. There will never another ST, but if we can find a guy who is consistant in all aspects of the D, then we will be fine. We have more pressing issues to worry about, i.e, what depth do we have if there is a signifigant injury to either of our lines, or backers?

In regards to the draft picks, I will be willing to bet that they will all be signed by the time camp starts, and since none of them will be paid 1st round money, we will be able to afford them for cheap, and long term deals. Plus wait till camps around the league start, and if there is anymore additions that need to be made, we will have cap room to make those moves. I am anxious for the season to start.

Not a big surprise, nice info, but I'll file this info under "doesn't really matter".

the FO's done well in pikcing on EJ and SS though as last minute (CHEAP) deals.

neither one's a pro bowler, but both could be quality backups or average starters.
