Whatever happens I'll trust the decision.

I have been saying that all along Matty about DP. As much as many of us (including me) would like to see him stick around for depth, the question with him becomes"What is he going to do on sundays'"? Being the #4 receiver, coupled with his salry he would have to play ST in order to warrant a roster spot. Since he does not play ST is it worth it to the team to keep him around maybe to catch a few balls as the #4 receiver.

Re: Patten to be released?

It's all been said aleady. Patten is the better player. It won't surprise me if he gets cut tho, hes a spare part at this point.

Re: Patten to be released?

It would be a critical mistake to release Patten. We need him for depth, and also to keep people from getting at all complacent.

Taylor Jacobs has had his opportunites here in my view. He has the talent, but he has to go somewhere else to realize it. We don't have the time to wait for him to develop anymore.

If it suits you, you can listen on-line. I get it in SW Florida. Below is the link. Hit the drop down under "listen", select "listen live". It will take you to a sign in, and...........................

Re: Patten to be released?

I'm thinking this is bs speculation and think you'll see Patten in Redskins gear on opening day...

I think I found the problem with this report! It's only a rumor, coming from Radio 980 and not a reputable source.

And the Boston Hearald isn't the biggest paper in Boston for good reason as well!

Re: Patten to be released?

This report is 100% garbage. I can't believe we went to five pages with this thread.

Gibbs has been saying all offseason that David Patten is having a tremendous offseason, and that he looks great. He's not going anywhere, he could still be our #2 WR.

Re: Patten to be released?

The only thing missing from this thread is a reference to LennyP's earlier story.

That, and this pencil.

Isn't this the same thing they say about Taylor Jacobs yet you're ready to toss him out the door too. The difference is Jacobs plays special teams and is much, much cheaper.

The Taylor Jacobs situation is very different from David Patten's for a couple of reasons:

1) Taylor Jacobs has never done anything in this league. Patten has, he was an effective deep threat for the Pats. So you have to at least give Patten a chance to show that he can be that player again now that his knee is healthy.

2) Jacobs is the epitome of a practice field player. He wows the coaches on the practice field, and then on game-day he can't get anything done. It's because he's a major pussy, when the bullets start flying he hides in his litte shell like a turtle. He had plenty of chances last year to make an impact with Patten and Thrash both banged up. He didn't get it done.

And lastly, how cheap Taylor Jacobs is has nothing to do with anything. The only reason to care about a player's cap figure is when you have other holes to fill on your team. The Skins have only two areas that could use upgrading, IMO. That's the offensive line depth and CB depth. But at this stage of the offseason, there is literally nobody available who would represent an upgrade at those positions (well Ty Law, but we couldn't afford him even if we cut Patten). So, since we can't do any upgrading, cap space is not an issue for us. You simply keep the best player.

Yes! Amen! I have been shouting this same sentiment on the board for a looong time about Patten. We are UNDER the cap. There is NO ONE to sign. Who cares if hes being paid "too much" to be a #4?

Have you heard that patten WON'T play special teams? I haven't heard that myself. If he is willing , then I say keep him regardless of the money. What happens if our WR corps gets decimated with injuries? We will ens up in the same boat as last season. Would you be more comfortable with Jacobs or patten starting if injuries were to dictate that situation?

Yeah. I don't care if it's an inefficient use of Dan Snyder's money. I only care if it's an inefficient use of cap-space. There is a difference between the two.

And keeping Patten would maximize the talent on the team, while keeping the team under the cap. That's efficient use of cap-space.
