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.
im all for KR. he really is a gibbs guy. reformed christian. seriously an overall good guy.

Not only did he play under Martz but he was a perennial Pro-Bowler under Al Saunders. So they have a good history together. For the right price he's a perfect fit here.

Re: Predict our first major player acquisition

I'm wary about Koren Robinson because he drops so many balls. I know he had a resurgence last year, but I'm not sure he's the most reliable to be our #2.

Randle-El really is a #1 guy. He's that good. He would have a breakout year like Santana did for us if he was a # 1 somewhere. I'd be surprised to seem him leave the Steelers though.

I think Isaac Bruce can still play. He had a decent season last year and that's with him being hurt part of the season as well as Bulger. His ship hasn't sailed just yet.

I'd just like another guy that could stretch the field. Antonio Bryant seems like an intriguing project. I wonder if he really does want to prove himself and a bit of redemption or if he really is just a mess.

Re: Predict our first major player acquisition

i dont think randle-el should HAVE to be a #1 guy. we have that in moss. i agree with wheover thinks that the super bowl will drive the price up on randle-el but i WOULD like to have him for the right price.

My bet is that the Skins don't go for a WR in free agency. I think Al Saunders will want to add another pass receiver at the TE slot. There are several good prospects at that position in the draft.

Re: Predict our first major player acquisition

Any chance we could afford Jurivicous AND Bruce/Givens? Could you imagine that starting trio? Moss, Bruce/Givens and Jurivicous as the possession and red-zone guy? Not sure what the cap is, but I'd be all for dropping Patten to get this combo.

As for KR, I need to see him stay on the straight and narrow for another solid year before I'd even look at him.

That is just rediculous. Pay a guy a few million dollars for a year, he retires, then we are stuck w/ his dead money the next year or two. We do not need another 30 something year old receiver. we have two already

Randel-el is more hype than anything else. He had mediocre numbers (even when considering his team) and a stellar reputation because of a superbowl and thowing touchdown passes. Randel-el at a good price would be nice, but he's looking for money. If he wasn't looking for big bucks he wouldn't leave the steelers so theres really no extra incentive to be a redskin. Quite frankly I think patten is a better wide-out then Randel-el.

Bruce is old but proved effecient even last year. Someone mentioned about about him and saunders as well. Looks like it's going to happen, but we'll see.

I agree 100% about Randel-El.. He's a decent #2, but nowhere close to a #1.. I've been very vocal about wanting Givens with Bruce and Moulds as secondary options at #2.

So where did you hear that Bruce is planning on retiring after next year? Because I didn't see that article, perhaps you could link it here? That's a ridiculous assumption to make.

You know what we really need? A WR to come here and make an impact, take pressure off Santana Moss, and gel right away with our offense. His familiarity with Al Saunders makes him the perfect fit.

I'm not saying break the bank for the guy, but he's the best available option for us.

HE IS 34. ARE WE BRING BACK GEORGE ALLEN AND GETTING THE OVER THE HILL GANG BACK TOGETHER!! WHY PAY A 34 YEAR OLD GUY WHEN THERE ARE YOUNGER, FASTER, BIGGER, MORE PRODUCTIVE, AND ALL IN ALL BETTER RECEIVERS ON THE MARKET. YOU PEOPLE ARE BASING IT ON HIS NAME AND PREVIOUS YEARS STATISTICS. HE WAS HURT LAST YEAR, NOT VERY PRODUCTIVE OTHER GAMES. I AM NOT SAYING HE WOULDN'T BE SERVICABLE, BUT REALLY, WHY NOT MOULDS, BIGGER(WHICH WE NEED) A LITTLE YOUNGER. WHY NOT JEVON WALKER, HE IS BIGGER, BETTER, 7 YEARS YOUNGER. YOU MIGHT AS WELL GO FOR RANDEL EL, HES THE SAME PLAYER, SIZE AND SPEED WISE.
