Re: Royal Flushed

What? At this rate all of the decent FA will be gone before we sign just one.

Good for you RR! He had a roller coaster ride last year but came through in a couple of games. I think the Skins may have a different guy in mind to take over the TE spot...

Re: Royal Flushed

Jesus! Who the hell did he blow for that? That is a vintage Snyder type contract. I am glad we didn't spend that kind of money on him. He was serviceable at a cheap price. He will now be stealing a paycheck with that contract.

Re: Royal Flushed

good for him. I thought Royal was a good guy, true, he did have some absolutely horrible games last year, i.e. the four dropped passes game, but i thought he was still serviceable. Now we have to get someone to replace him.

Re: Royal Flushed

Re: Royal Flushed

Wonder who Saunders and co have in mind as a TE?

Never felt Royal stepped up to the next level...

Re: Royal Flushed

Good luck to Robert Royal. He worked hard here, and had a few bad games, but overall did what he was asked in the offense. I can't say the Redskins were willing to offer him that kind of money.

No man. I agree its starting to look that way but the fact of the matter is its not even close. I think Shaq injured ass got paid 30 million to play for the Heat last year. The most Peyton will bring in is like what 17 mil. And we wonder why all the tall people play basketball.

Re: Royal Flushed

I think Robert Johnson can turn into a pretty decent TE for the skins, plus I believe Gibbs and Co will either sign someone or draft a TE.

Re: Royal Flushed

with the lack of day 1 picks, i'd bet on a FA TE signing instead of drafting one.

Re: Royal Flushed

That's ridiculous money for Royal. Robert Johnson doesn't seem like too much of a step down. Also, blocking tight end is the type of position that cries out "undrafted free-agent".
