Re: Top 5 Free Agent Signings / Bust By The Redskins All Time

A straight up trade for Mike Oliphant if I remember rightly. I think we got slightly the better of that trade.

Is it just me?

There were no replies after Matty's post about Byner when I replied but now there are 4.

SHAWN SPRINGS man!!! The guy led our team in interceptions and sacks last season! Further, he has proven to be a tough, phyisical, shut-down corner. When he came here there were a lot of question marks about this guy, but he has definitely provided the answers with his superior, pro-bowl quality play.

A guy that didn't stick around long but was a force on the D-line and made plays in the back field was Daryl Gardener. Why did we let him go?

As I recall he only signed a one-year contract with us, then wanted a long-term deal for more than the front office thought he was worth.

He had attitude issues, in a nutshell.

Gardner also had a back problem. I think he road the bench in denver the following year.

he was injury prone, the broncos signed him and he ended up being benched and insulting the coaching staff etc daily in the media there.

while he was here i think 5 games into the season he said he was looking foward to next year i think (Was that him?).

the skins got one great year out of him, but he was in no way worth the risk of a long term deal.

Re: Top 5 Free Agent Signings / Bust By The Redskins All Time

Lets not forget Mark Carrier. He came the same year as Deion and I knew we were in for a long season. Hell Sanders was damaged goods from the start and was way past his prime. Carrier was just not there!

Speaking of F/A busts, don't forget Carl Banks, Al Noga, and Leonard Marshall.

Carl Banks and Leonard Marshall were done long before they came to the Skins. Al Noga ... I remember when Ritchie Petitbon was asked why they let Fred Stokes go. He said something like, 'Fred wanted more money, so we signed somebody better.' That somebody was Al Noga.

Oh boy, what a doosie he was.

Didn't we trade for Lachey? Wasn't he the Jay Schroeder to the Raiders deal? As long as we're talking free agents from the USFL (Sanders, Bryant) we need to mention Gary Clark.
