Archuleta hit the road......

The Ram have signed Corey Chavous to a 5 year deal to replace Archuleta at the S spot as reported by the AP.

Re: Archuteta hit the road......

wow...that's a pretty big addition for the Rams. Makes me wonder why Chavous wasn't on the Skins radar. I didn't even know he was a free agent. I would have preferred to put him back there with ST.

Re: Archuteta hit the road......

I mentioned him... I think he was the best FA safety. I'd be interested to hear his contract numbers though. much better than AA and the rams are winning the offseason right now.

monster DT (stopgap, still good)
centerfield S (plenty of years left, smart, quality guy)

I never really liked Matt Stevens...did anyone else get the impression that whenver he thought he might miss a tackle he would just grab the facemask?

I don't know if there's anything more insulting than calling another safety Matt Stevens...kinda like when I call Peyton Manning the Alex Rodriguez of the NFL.

Re: Archuleta hit the road......

I was good with Stevens for most of his time with the club. What are Archuleta's strengths?

Re: Archuleta hit the road......

Apparently Archuleta is meeting with the Bears on Monday. I wonder if we met with Archuleta to force the Bears to up their ante to him and thereby maybe not have enough to sign Randle El. Or if we're meeting with Randle El for the same reason.

My gut says no, but still...

Maybe the Skins will just make everyone cancel their trips to Chicago. That would be sweet!

Archuleta is like a poor mans Roy Williams that still has the ability to play at a pro bowl level. He'll basically be an enforcer across the middle with Taylor. Man can you imagine running a slant route and getting hit by Archuleta, Taylor, and Washington at the same time. Actually he reminds me a bit of Pat Tillman and Michael Boulware. He played LB in college but was drafted 20th overall as a safety. Hope this helps.

Re: Archuleta hit the road......

The issue that I have with Archuleta is simply that he can't cover. I like to watch him light people up, but I think I could create separation on Adam Archuleta

He got 16 million for five years....first three years it said in the AP he will get about 4 million annually the first three years. Hope that helps!

huge for a safety, hits hard, plays the run well and can handle the super heavy running backs (remember alstot blasting clark backwards?).

damn... yeah thanks, it just makes me depressed we didn't make an attempt on him. I think GW is going for a fear based defense though where no one wants to catch the ball.

I don't want Archuletta or Randle-El.

For the love of God will they sign a pass rusher...
