Rolle Signed?
 
[url="http://www.profootballcentral.com"]www.profootballcentral.com[/url]

They are reporting that we have agreed to terms with Samari Rolle. So it looks like after 1.5 days of FA, our goal of just re-signing Pierce and Smoot is out the window.

The only good news is, we have a bit more money than we would have had re-signing them both. What does anyone think about the Rolle signing (if it is completed) and what should we do with any more money we have?

I am thinking a solid run at Marcus Pollard might be in the cards. He is a perfect fit for the Redskins offense. He could play the next two years, then Royal could step in full-time and we would be set at TE for years. Also, I wouldn't mind it one bit if we went after Chike Okeafor. He would upgrade that 4 man rush in a hurry.

If the Rolle deal is true, I'd like to know the terms of the deal

Okeafor? No. Pollard? Maybe. I'm anxious to know the terms of the Rolle deal. Hopefully, is isn't what was initially 'rumored'. And Smoot is still available? Hmmm. It seems other teams are balking at the coveted $15 million dollar (bonus) signing price too. :oink:

Yeah I definitely would as well. Apparently they haven't been disclosed the details yet. This is the only source I have heard confirming the signing yet, and so I don't know if I would accept it as gospel.

Why? As long as the money is right, it's ok. :oink:

I'm just curious, Boss, why no Okeafor?

If this is true, and the deal goes through:

1. Draft Williamson in the 1st round
2. Sign Marcus Pollard
3. Draft another Guard/Center in the 3rd round, which would solidify the left side of the line.

We're set on offense.

On defense:
1. Try and sign either Reggie Hayward or Chike
2. Still need a replacement for Pierce - We probably don't have the cap room to sign Ed Hartwell

I don't believe this....at least until it is confirmed by another source.....especially with Smoot still out there...

seems strange to think that pro football central has a foot up on ESPN, and just about any other publication in the free world

and would Rolle sign without visiting the Skins?

Exactly.

I've thought this too, but ESPN is virtually last in actually posting signings. I think this is because they are held to higher standards than places such as profootballcentral, and they can't afford to post incorrect material, so they wait until everything is official and signed. Their rumor central does list the Skins as big players for Rolle, though. That said, I won't consider it a done deal until someone else confirms.

[QUOTE=e16bball]I'm just curious, Boss, why no Okeafor?[/QUOTE]

I really don't know much about him. But I believe that what we were able to accomplish as a defense last year works. If Okeafor is a pass rushing DE who plays the run equally well as long as the money is right, sign him. I'm sold on drafting a WR and a DE in the upcoming draft. On my wishlist is DT Shaun Cody USC and WR Troy Williamson SC. :oink:

Now, I liked Hayward until he signed with JAX. Okeafor hasn't been plagued with injuries has he? If not, give him a go. :oink:

Re: Rolle Signed?
 
Okeafor is definitely a little weak against the run, but he has 8 and 8.5 sacks in his last two years with Seattle. I was only thinking him because Reggie Hayward has signed with the Jags and the Skins need an edge rusher. Cody is good, but he would be unable to pressure off the edge. Now someone like Shawne Merriman? He would be awesome pressuring the QB. If Williams isn't there at 9, I think we should think long and hard about drafting Merriman, if he's even there.
