I could swear that I've heard in the past that he's a local guy and has said that he would love to play for the Skins. I know that really doesn't mean much when there are actually millions of dollars on the line, but maybe he'd be willing to work out a good deal just to play here. (Why do I put so much faith in these players?)

Re: Predict our first major player acquisition

I hope we don't go after big name players. As a general rule, that's a formula for wasting cap money.

We need to find bargains. C. Griffin and M. Washington were not big names before they came here because both played on poorly coached, lackluster defensive units. Both are still in their prime and came in healthy.

We need more like them.

Re: Predict our first major player acquisition

I dont see anyone mentioning Chris Hope, safety from pittsburg. he is far better than Archaletta(forgive the spelling) or Jevon Walker. We need a big receiver, not another 5-10 180lb guy. which is what Randel el, givens, ect are. Walker is like 6-3 over 200lbs and young.

Dude, again stop w/ the Isaac Bruce stuff. He is way past his prime, not worth the vet minimum. we dont need another small receiver especially one his age.

I TOTALLY disagree with this. Bruce knows our system, he played under Martz for several years who is a disciple of the Gibbs offense. The guy could come right in and run solid routes for us. I wouldn't pay a lot for him because as you say he is old, but he is still an effective receiver. It was only one year ago that he had 89 catches and 1292 yards. Last year he missed 5 games, got nagged by injuries all season, and Martz was sidelined. I wouldn't pay a lot for him given that we could get a David Givens for pretty cheap, but Bruce would be able to come in and assimilate our offense very quickly. He knows the Saunders style offense already.

he knows the style of offense, and i think he could contribute, but would you rather go after someone else?

QB Tommy Maddox

WR Brandon Lloyd

CB Charles Woodson or R.W. McQuarters (special teams)

DE Jon Abraham

OL Jeff Backus

K Vinatieri

Any of these players especiall at WR or CB would please me. Feel free to disagree or add to this

Not really. Randle-El is a hot commodity and will be way overpriced when all is said and done. I don't want Antonio Bryant, he's a cancer. Jurevicius would be alright, but he's been in west coast offenses, not our style of offense. I'm not interested in Koren Robinson, he's not a Gibbs guy. Brandon Lloyd is restricted and I wouldn't want to give up any of our precious draft picks for him. I think I'd like Givens about as much as I'd like Bruce, between them it would come down to price for me.

I don't think that fans can pick out the bargains like Griffin and Washington. We're more familiar with players who have been publicized. Chris Hope and Randel El have been mentioned here because their team won the Super Bowl. They're both good players you'd like to have but unlikely to be bargain deals.

I'd throw Moulds into that mix too. I know he supposedly had problems in Buff. last year, but he was never a malcontent before and I think the Buffalo offense and/or coaching staff had real problems last year. He is about the same age as Bruce and was a first tier WR for a long time. If he gets cut, and the price is right, then my I would go with Givens first then Bruce or Moulds then Randle-El.
