From John Clayton ...
The Redskins may lean toward picking Miami safety Sean Taylor over Miami tight end Kellen Winslow Jr., particularly if Winslow chooses the Poston brothers as his agents.
The Redskins currently have a grievance against them filed by the Postons for what they claim is a missing $6.5 million roster bonus in a restructuring of linebacker LaVar Arrington's contract.
I hope this is true, and not because of the Postons. Taylor is a force on the defensive side (somewhere between Ed Reed and Roy Williams) and will help ease the pain of a departed Champ Bailey. He will win games for the team who drafts him.
With Portis, Coles, Gardner, Thrash, Big Play D' McCants and Taylor Jacobs all on offensive there's just not enough plays in a game to get anyone else the football. Let Sellers play H-back and either Flemister or Rasby at TE. The three of them won't have 40 catches combined at the end of the year.
It's a nice dilemma to have ... two great players who'll fit into our system perfectly. I tend to lean toward Taylor but I'll be happy with either at this point. Both are significant upgrades.
There has been speculation that Winslow won't sign with the Postons because he wants to be a Redskin.
So when the draft comes and Winslow has no agent, is it worth the risk to draft him?
