Free Agent WR's Rated

1st Choice
Antwaan Randle El #82

Height: 5-10
Weight: 192 lbs. Age: 26
Pos: WR
Experience: 4 years
College: Indiana
Drafted: Year:2002 Round:2 Pick:30, Steelers

Due to Randle El’s Versitility I feel he will be the best pick-up as a #2 WR and a return specialist. He will give the Redskins an added dimension in the passing game and the running game. His 15.9 avg yds per reception in the highest of this group.

REC 35 | YDS 558 | TD 1

SPLIT REC YDS AVG LNG TD
2005 35 558 15.9 63 1

2nd Choice
David Lamar Givens #87

Height: 6-0
Weight: 215 lbs. Age: 25
Pos: WR
Experience: 4 years
College: Notre Dame
Drafted: Year:2002 Round:7 Pick:42, Patriots

Givens size and production in an offense that is a collaboration of very good players, is impressive. I would venture to say that he is probably the best Receiver the Patriots have. I think he will be very productive opposite Moss. If you add Patten to the mix I think all three would thrive the way the “POSSE” did in the 80’s.

REC 59 | YDS 738 | TD 2

SPLIT REC YDS AVG LNG TD
2005 59 738 12.5 40 2

3rd Choice
Kevin Devon Curtis #83

Height: 5-11
Weight: 186 lbs. Age: 27
Pos: WR
Experience: 3 years
College: Utah State
Drafted: Year:2003 Round:3 Pick:10, Rams

Curtis had the most production out of these WR’s . He also played in a system that was full of options for him to pull down 60 receptions when he plays opposite Holt & Bruce is a feat in itself. He too has the ability to stretch the field as well as playing a possession role. He could see some action in the return game as well.
REC 60 | YDS 801 | TD 6

SPLIT REC YDS AVG LNG TD
2005 60 801 13.4 83 6

4th Choice
Koren Robinson #18

Height: 6-1
Weight: 205 lbs. Age: 25
Pos: WR
Experience: 5 years
College: North Carolina State
Drafted: Year:2001 Round:1 Pick:9, Seahawks

Robinson could be the best of this bunch if it wasn’t for the possible baggage. From all accounts in Minnesota he was a great teammate and seamed to get his life back on track. He has the best combination of size and speed of this bunch, and probably the most upside. Oh and did I mention he is going to the Pro bowl as a returner.

REC 22 | YDS 347 | TD 1

SPLIT REC YDS AVG LNG TD
2005 22 347 15.8 80 1


5th Choice
Joe Michael Jurevicius #87

Height: 6-5
Weight: 230 lbs. Age: 31
Pos: WR
Experience: 8 years
College: Penn State

I love this guy. He plays with so much heart. He would make a great possession receiver, which is what we really need. The only reason why he is 5th on this list is his age. At 31 years old he might actually cost to much to pry him away from Seattle. He had a monster year in the RedZone and could play a similar role for us.

REC 55 | YDS 694 | TD 10

SPLIT REC YDS AVG LNG TD
2005 55 694 12.6 52 10

I would not be dissapointed with any of these WR's. And it would be great to get two of them, although the salary cap could prevent that. It might be possible to sign a combination of Robinson and one of the other WR's. maybe...

Randle El & Robinson
Givens & Robinson
Curtis & Robinson

Re: Free Agent WR's Rated

good assessment, I agree. Hopefully R-el's hype hasn't driven his price up to insane levels, but if he comes here he may be the 3rd WR instead of the 2nd... he did much better in that role in pit. i'd rate curtis 1/2 in talent, but down him because he'd cost our 3rd, which i'd rather keep if possible.

I didn't think JJ would want to leave seattle, but seeing that he's only 31 and could play for 4 more years, maybe he'd consider moving. I doubt seattle is going to let him go very easily though since he's not going to command #1 money.

Re: Free Agent WR's Rated

You would think Randle El would have the Redskins at the top of his teams he would want to play for, if the pay is relatively even. He has not been able to reach his potential playing in Pittsburgh - he seems to be very underutilized. Chicago is his hometown, but I think he will go where he demonstrate his skills to the utmost, and that is here.

Re: Free Agent WR's Rated

Nice list. A couple of flaws I see with your plan:

1. W/O a CBA we're not going to be able to sign anyone without cutting loose a few big names. Who would you propose to release? Don't include folks like Arrington or Ramsey, since it's almost a foregone conclusion they will not be part of the team in '06.

2. As far as signing Robinson and someone else, given his history of being a problem player, would he be #3 on the depth chart? If so, what benefit is it to sign him for a couple $MM other than punt returns?

3. Jurevicius would be good but I seriously don't see him going anywhere outside of Seattle. He was ready to retire at the end of '04 and I believe he lives in the NW which is why Seattle was able to coax him into 1 more year.

4. Randle El would certainly be the biggest impact player on the list, but he might be overkill in terms of filling our needs. Needless to say, after a good year, Super Bowl app, etc. he won't be a bargain basement FA. Don't see this happening because he will be able to command a high market value because of his versatility.

5. With all said, I think David Givens or Koren Robinson as a single signing would be the best move we could make. Givens gives us a solid complement to Moss as a #2 with Patton going to the #3. Robinson I don't know as much about regarding his receiving skills but he at least would give us a solid #3 with Patton in the #2 slot, plus he would add the dimension of being a punt returner.

R-el is a good #3 and okay #2, he's not getting #1 money. he was more productive in the slot.

Re: Free Agent WR's Rated

I agree that we need a guy who's big and can just CATCH the ball. I will disagree that it's not possible to be successful with two smaller, fast guys. Cooley is our possession receiver if you see him that way.

Re: Free Agent WR's Rated

Wasn't Randel El drafted in the third round?

Curtis and Givens are the 2 that intrigue me in this group. In the past we have taken guys on the verge of breakout seasons. Curtis filled in admirably for Bruce and holt during their injury ridden season.

Re: Free Agent WR's Rated

From what I have heard from people that understand the cap process, it is not going to be that hard to get under the cap without having to cut a bunch of people. Restructuring some key players, who I think will be more than willing to help us get back to the SB. Robinson will come to Washington cheap. Givens will cost us, how much I don't know, but probably do able. I also think a CBA will be signed.

As much as I like JJ we need fresh legs. I also highly doubt he'll have a repeat of last years performance.

I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but I still don't think we should look past Antonio Bryant as a possibility. I know he's a former Cowboy and had that run-in with Parcells, but I think he's worth a look.

Re: Free Agent WR's Rated

I like Randle El, but is there substancial difference b/n him and Patten. Patten, i think, can become a legit threat w/ an improving offense. I don't know the # comparison b/n the 2 but i would guess their YPC, would be similar. I may try go a cheaper route w/ Curtis, or Robinson (if gibbs sees fit).
