i was just looking at us getting rw mcquarters who could also fill the need of a decent PR/KR.

I don't think we can say that until we get a chance to see how Campbell has progressed over the past year. Who knows after we get a chance to see him play in some preseason games we might be calling for him to be our starter this year. I don't think that will happen but it would be nice if he was performing good enough to bring up that conversation.

because we need someone who can play wr NOW. We can draft a wr but they won't develop for a few years.
Bruce is 34, has a few years left & can still play. Wherever he goes he'll get more than the vet minimum, unless you know something about his past injuries that's keeping him from healing.

I guess so. It's just rare to have someone sit a year and still come in and win. I mean Carson Palmer didn't even do it, but I'll admit I was being a bit melodramatic.

I've never been thrilled with his pick in the first round especially with the guys that were left. I think he would've been around later. Oh well. Hopefully, I will one day think that was a genius move to trade up for him.

I cant believe everyone is so willing to pay a 34 year old receiver who is past his prime. It just doesn't make sense. If you are going to pay a 34 past their prime WR, why not take a shot at TO. Probably going to be around the same price and he is by far a better receiver than bruce. plus he is a couple of years younger. (I in no way want TO on the Redskins) I was being sarcastic before someone goes on a tangent about TO and Redskins.

They were muted last year and made some moves so they could be more aggressive this year.

DE, LB, WR, K, CB, OL... These are all areas of need and they could all be filled in the first 36 hours. The teams in the East are already getting better and since they can't draft anyone decent after the third round, free agency is the only way to keep up.
CB? I agree we need depth, but you're not saying we should bench Springs or Rogers?

OL? We also need depth there, but you're not saying to bench one of the starters?

We definately need help at DE and WR. I don't think anyone would argue with you and I've never done so. Those are positions of need. Of course we might need help at LB because we just dumped Arrington. But getting 3 new starters wouldn't be going crazy (I've always said that was reasonable and probably to be expected). So, are you just being argumentative for its own sake, or do you actually disagree with what I said?

What I have disagreed with is people who want to upgrade starters everywhere (i.e. TE, LG, WR, SS, DT, DE, OLB). We could improve over the starters at all of those positions, but not all at once and certainly not all at once through free agency.

Taylor's trouble could be come the Redskis if he gose to jail....need a back up plan and that is saying Clark resigns! Three stars like DE,WR and LB would fit the bill!!! Then some vet back ups on the OL and DL.

Is this because you don't think Taylor is going to be around or Clark? Lets say we do get Archuleta with Taylor and Clark isn't that over kill? We need Clark or someone at S but we also need a DE and a LB maybe a 3rd CB. The Taylor thing really has me thinking he might not play!!! So if its that I can see a player here but Archuleta will damand to high a cost. There are other free agents that could fill that need at a lower cost I think!!!

Re: Why We Shouldn't Go Crazy in Free Agency

i think theyre maybe planning for the possibility of taylor being gone. archuleta would be an upgrade over clark, but that would be a shame to see such a team guy a) get the boot or b) get benched
