Redskins could be interested in Adams, Wayne

Here's the link to the Article, which is more about workout in general than FA stuff:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...032902258.html

The club still is roughly $4.4 million under the salary cap, but could also still look for a linebacker. Representatives for former Philadelphia linebacker Keith Adams and former Detroit linebacker Nate Wayne were contacted in recent weeks, but little movement appears to have taken place concerning either.

Re: Redskins could be interested in Adams, Wayne

Personally I'm more for drafting some young talent. Quite a few of the young linebackers in last year's draft worked out well.

Re: Redskins could be interested in Adams, Wayne

How about both a vet and a young guy?

Re: Redskins could be interested in Adams, Wayne

I'm down with that, but I'd REALLY like to see the Skins pursue some young linebackers and honestly I'd love to see us use our first pick on that this year. Maybe trade down some picks and take CBs.

Re: Redskins could be interested in Adams, Wayne

I say just let Chris Clemons, Robert McCune, and Khary Campbell fight it out in camp. May the best man win.

If we can sign a vet on the cheap though, that's not a bad way to go.

I still think we need to use our 2nd rounder on a CB.

Re: Redskins could be interested in Adams, Wayne

All of those players are good options for the first month or so. I myself, am personally a McCune fan, and would like to see Clemons as a situational pass rusher.

Either way, they should have a contingency plan in case the three of them can't get it done. That's where a talented rookie comes in.

Re: Redskins could be interested in Adams, Wayne

With the depth in the draft of CB, I'd really like to see us go LB or even OL. I'd also like to see us package a couple 6th rounders and maybe move up in the 5th and grab some of that great CB depth.

Re: Redskins could be interested in Adams, Wayne

I think they will go get a nickelback in FA after the draft. I don't think Ade Jimoh would be the worst possible thing there, as he has the potential to be better than Walt Harris. They could use some help.

Re: Redskins could be interested in Adams, Wayne

As far as the draft, I wouldn't rule out DT or TE. But ONLY if the right guy falls.

I don't know the most about the NFL draft pool this year, but is the CB depth that good that we think we could land a potential stud replacement for Springs? When I think of getting a CB, I'm thinking it would be wise to find the guy that could pair up with Rogers for the next 5 years once Springs has to head over the hill.

The Gregg Williams defense needs great CB play to function, and I think it would be wise to shore it up with the 2nd rounder. From what I understand, there are a few real good corners available in the 2nd round.

There's more than one way to skin a cat though. We could just try to sign a temporary nickel this year, draft a LB with our 2nd rounder, and then worry about Springs' replacement later. I guess I'm just thinking it would be nice to take advantage of the CB depth now while it's there. Our 2nd rounder could yield a stud at CB.

I would personally rule those positions out. I think Fauria represents the blocking TE we need, plus there's Sellers, Cooley, Robert Johnson, and Manny White playing at the TE and H-Back positions.

I think DT is very settled with Griffin, Salavea'a, and Wynn comprising a 3-man rotation. Plus we still have young'ns there. I don't think these positions are priorities to address with our 2nd rounder, not when we have holes at Nickel and outside LB.

There are a lot of good DB's in the 2nd round, but no studs. We went high at that position last year with Carlos Rogers, so IMO it's not a good idea to use another high pick on a CB.

I think it is when you have Ade Jimoh as your nickel and your #1 CB is getting old. What you did last year in the draft has nothing to do with what you should do this year. You draft based on best fit for your team, and it just so happens we need another CB.

Again, if we fill the nickel role in free agency, and then worry about Springs' replacement later, that's fine with me. Then we can draft a linebacker and I'll feel good. But I think nickel corner is a bigger priority for us than LB, given that I think Clemons is more capable at his position than Jimoh is at his.

Re: Redskins could be interested in Adams, Wayne

Cromartie might drop to us, and he's a stud. He would be a nice CB pickup in the draft.

Nobody thought much of Lemar Marshall or Antonio Pierce when they were promoted to starter, and they're stars now, so hopefully, we have more buried treasure in our depth chart at the LB position.
