Wow, heavily on the wide receivers and tackles. Maybe one of these guys sticks! It would be nice to find another diamond in the rough - especially if it's a WR.

Camp Bodies? You always need guys to run routes and others to make tackles, well you can't tackle this weekend, but you know what I mean.

I feel like WRs are about the most unpredictable position to draft, so it surely couldn't hurt to take a look. Even "sure things" like Calvin Johnson and AJ Green would have scared the crap out of me if we drafted them before we knew how they'd turn out.

Yeah, I thought the same thing when I saw the roster. Message is we need to see improvement. Havent seen the consistency from Robinson, Hankerson, and Brescoe....time for someone else to get an opportunity.

Yeah, the thing is, Robinson has the ability and speed to get open deep, we just need him catching the ball more consistently, but we can probably say that for Hankerson, Brescoe, and Paul.

One play but he did stand his ground.

What kind of contracts do these UDFAs sign? Is it a contract only good for training camp, where they need a new contract if they make the team? And with the new rookie salary cap, are some of these guys making as good money as say a 7th round pick?

Any WR we should have our eye on from this group?

Skye Dawson. Our new return man and when Moss is gone, our slot receiver.

Awesome name for a returner

Aside from Skye Dawson and Xavier Nixon, the one that intrigues me the most is Marvin Burdette. He led the nation in tackles per game with 13.08, and is UAB's all time tackle leader with 406 tackles; he also had 3 career INTs. Now let's see what he can do as a Redskin.

They get a 1 year league minimum rookie contract (around 400k I believe) with no guarantees beyond a small bonus, mainly meant for travel expenses. Usually the bonus is a few thousand. There can be some slight bidding on them, as teams can spend up to a certain amount on a bonus for a single player (something like 15-20k) but teams are only allowed a set amount of total bonuses combined for all UDFA's (to keep bidding wars down on UDFA's). The CBA doesnt allow the teams to offer more money per year, they are stuck with that. They can only try to offer a bigger bonus (the only guaranteed money) than another team if an UDFA is undecided.

They do actually get paid something for attending offseason workouts as well. Its not much, but they can make around $800 a week plus free room and board as long as the team keeps them under contract. They will also receive pay for TC that is separate from the contract, which is for regular season only. So an UDFA can still make $8-10k plus the "signing bonus" even if they get cut at the end of TC.
