Redskins Sign Todd Collins

Washington now has a logjam at quarterback. With Mark Brunell as the starter, and Patrick Ramsey and Jason Campbell on the roster, the went out and got Chiefs backup Todd Collins to the tune of a two-year, $2.5 million contract with a signing bonus of $450,000.

I don't know about logjam. I mean Ramsey should be gone soon.

I would imagine that the Ramsey trade it pretty much done w/ someone. (Jets, maybe the Raiders) either that, or we are just going to cut him tonight.

Re: Redskins Sign Todd Collins

An excellent move by the 'Skins. Collins is already familiar with Saunders' offense, so if Campbell struggles and/or Brunell goes down, we have insurance. Let's hope it doesn't come to that though.

Re: Redskins Sign Todd Collins

the Raiders could actually be a pretty good fit for Ramsey given Al Davis likes to throw the ball down the field. Ramsey is pretty good at throwing deep, but needs to improve on the intermediate routes. I hope he gets a shot to play somewhere.

Re: Redskins Sign Todd Collins

I feel a little better - I was getting a little nervous wondering what the Skins were going to do for the third QB.

Re: Redskins Sign Todd Collins

What's up folks ! New to the game but I'm gonna help keep the party going. Todd Collins is a good pick up, he can help Jason Campbell learn the nuances of Saunders' system. Good Luck to Patrick 'til whoever he plays for battles the skins ! HAIL !

Re: Redskins Sign Todd Collins

Welcome! I agree, JC is going to need help, so the pickup makes sense. He's old, though, so that's a concern.

Re: Redskins Sign Todd Collins

They should not have announced this until Ramsey was traded. Why would any team not just wait for the eventual release of Ramsey now? The Redskins should have clung to the idea that if a trade does not work out that they are going to bring Ramsey back again next year. The redskins alwasy seem to show their hand too much when they have a player to trade. I know that teams probably know anyway that the skins would not bring ramsey back next year but there is something to be said for thinking somethign and having all doubt removed.

That's true, but us showing our hand doesn't change the facts that the Raiders and Jets need a QB and that nobody was offering us anything higher than a 5th rounder (plus a possible 3rd). They might have upped their offer if they sensed a disparity in bargaining positions, but I think it's clear that PR isn't going to fetch much on the open market.

Re: Redskins Sign Todd Collins

We are still not sure if there is already a deal for Ramsey complete and just hasnt been reported yet. Maybe thats why the Skins signed him possibly knowing they already have a deal that lets Ramsey go.

They probably already have something in the works, perhaps part of a deal for Abraham?

This isn't news anyway, who didn't expect Collins to be signed and Ramsey to be dealt?? This isn't exactly a shocker.
