Redskins Notes (3/31): K Wright, Evans etc

Redskins | Team expected to sign K. Wright
Fri, 31 Mar 2006 18:42:59 -0800
ESPN.com's John Clayton reports the Washington Redskins are expected to sign free agent CB Kenny Wright (Jaguars) to a one-year contract next week.

Redskins | Team expected to re-sign D. Evans
Fri, 31 Mar 2006 18:41:16 -0800
ESPN.com's John Clayton reports the Washington Redskins are expected to re-sign free agent DE Demetric Evans to a multi-year contract that is worth $1 million per season.




Big news, Evans is back and our DL depth is secure now (3 capable DTs and a sub, 3 capable DEs and a sub) with true #1s (carter/griffin) for each.

Wright is a good corner that should really help our depth and is pretty solid himself.

This leaves the skins with about 3.3$mill in free cap space to sign lloyd, draft picks, and look at a good backup/okay starter quality LBs if they want. My guess is that we'll probably call it quits on FA unless Keith Adams comes cheaply.

Re: Redskins Notes (3/31): K Wright, Evans etc

Quick look at contracts of two guys the skins or board members were interested in:

Texans | Contract update: S. Cowart
Fri, 31 Mar 2006 18:24:54 -0800

Houston Texans LB Sam Cowart signed a two-year contract with base salaries of $710,000 (2006) and $2 million (2007).

Jets | Contract update: A. Dyson
Fri, 31 Mar 2006 18:30:38 -0800

New York Jets CB Andre Dyson signed a five-year contract with base salaries of $750,000 (2006), $850,000 (2007), $1.225 million (2008), $2.05 million (2009) and $2.1 million (2010).


Dyson got about $4mill in signing bonus and makes slightly more per year than carlos rogers. He would have been my pick to sign, but he's really a #2 type corner, and the jets give him the opportunity to start every game.

Very, very smart signings. Outside of that redundantly mentioned LB spot, this defense has no weakness.

I love it!

Re: Redskins Notes (3/31): K Wright, Evans etc

evans will be good for depth now, i'm glad he didn't sign elsewhere. Even though i've never heard of kenny wright, i think he will give us some depth at corner, and possibly take the nickel job.

Wright started, every game I believe, last year for one of the best defenses in the league.

Re: Redskins Notes (3/31): K Wright, Evans etc

He did start every game for the jags last year, and he played 3 years for the texans as a #3 and also had 5 starts there (presumeably due to injury).

110 games played, 50 career starts, 1 game as a DNP (did not play)... that leaves 1 game unaccounted for (the 2003 texans game where i'd guess he missed due to injury).

the fact that its a 1 year deal for a #3 CB means it a sub $1mill payout i'd assume.

Re: Redskins Notes (3/31): K Wright, Evans etc

So, with Ade Jimoh and Kenny Wright about to be signed, does that change the draft priorities you think? With Springs, Rogers, Wright and Jimoh presumably the top four corners, now I'm not so sure cornerback remains an absolute need in the draft.

According to this we could be going OLB in the second round. Plus we might be bringing in LB Keith Adams and re-signing Warrick Holdman
