Courtney Brown (3/15/2005)
 
Sounds like the Skins are seriously considering him, what do you think, is he worth the risk?

Sorry Matty, I think this guys' a bust.

No need to apologize to me, LOL

I'd sign him up for a minimal contract loaded with incentives.

Blache worked wonders for our D-line last year particularly for Griffin. If Brown can stay healthy, and that's a big if, the guy is a difference maker who could be a real find for our defense and finally give us the strong pass rush from the DE spot we've lacked for the past few years.

He is a bust at $5m a year. But if he agrees to a serious pay cut and we work him in slowly (prior injuries) he should respond well. He has great potential.

From what I understand, he considers our team his preferred destination, but doesn't want to lose money coming here. The Browns have a standing offer that averages $2 million for the remainder of his deal. If we can match that and sign him, I think it's worth it. If we have to beat that (with guaranteed money), then it isn't wise.

I'd love to slap a load of "performance guaranteed bonuses" on him and let him play for the league minimum and a respectable signing bonus. I just don't think it'll happen.

I would sign him. Quality DE's are hard to find and this guy was a good enough prospect to be the #1 overall pick in the draft. I would take the chance as long as we don't give him a huge signing bonus.

I would sign him only if the price is right. He's a true pass rusher, and he's fairly young. As long as he stays healthy, he should be very effective.

Re: Courtney Brown
 
Doesn’t it sound odd that this is his "preferred" destination but he won't take less to come here? Wouldn’t that make whoever offers the most money the "preferred" destination? What the hell is the point of having a "preferred" destination when your decision will be based on solely on money? Sounds ridiculous to me.

If I had the talent, I'd prefer to be a Washington Redskin. If my disappointing career, already in jeopardy because of recurring injuries, was at the point where I may be signing my last contract, I would take the most guaranteed money.

If Courtney Brown continues to perform at the same level he has throughout his professional career (missing an average of over 6 games a season), this will be the last contract he signs. I don't begrudge him at all for trying to ensure his future with the money he will receive.

Re: Courtney Brown
 
The Browns have the standing offer of $2M per, but who knows how serious they are about bringing him back even at that price.

Regardless, I think he's worth the gamble. I'd roll the dice on him.

I think he would be alright if we pick him up. I think he could bounce back somewhat from his earlier years.

Id sign him but not at $2m a year.

Give him the minimum with loads of incentives so he has to earn his cash.

If the price is right. Role the dice. Williams could rotate him and maybe he wouldn't get hurt so quickly.

Re: Courtney Brown
 
I'd be ok with $2 million per year as long as the signing bonus was miniscule. I would want to be able to cut ties relatively painlessly in case he ends up being a bust here too.

Give him some more of those unlikely to be earned incentives, like they gave Brunell. They don't count against the cap, from what I understand. Like if he had 10 sacks in a season or something, give him a couple extra million.

I don't begrudge him at all. I am just tired of hearing all the crap about "being a Redksin for life" or a "core Redskin" or "wanting to be in DC". I mean just be honest and say you're gonna take the money no matter where it is. The rest is simply a load of crap unless it really means that being in DC is worth taking less money. What they should be saying is "I prefer to be wherever they'll pay me the most". For some reason many of them are afraid to say something like that but they are obviously thinking it. Don't go around talking about specific destinations unless you are willing to make it happen regardless of other factors. I mean if I had chance to play professional football I'd want to be a Redskin too but I have no problem saying that I would go to whatever team was going to pay me the most.
