Re: Should We Resign Dockery???

Samuels is making big money. Jansen is making big money. Thomas is making ridiculous money. Rabach's contract is nothing to be scoffed at.

Dockery's season is one of three outcomes.

1. He improves on last year's performance, and has a great year.
2. He doesn't improve, or regresses.
3. He gets injured.

If # 1, I think he will want a big money long term deal. I'm not saying he won't get paid, but it ties up your cap bad to be paying 5 guys on the oline like probowlers.

If #2, it may be time for a change. If he ends up being a liability on a great offense, we'd be better off replacing him with a young guy who's been working with Bugel, or a first day draft pick.

If #3, he will probably want to resign cheaply to prove he deserves a big payday. I would certainly give him the chance. I would make sure I have starting caliber competition on the roster.

I just read somewhere that Dockery lost like 25 pounds and is much more agile. Bugel said something like this year Dockery is going to blow up in a good way for the skins...

Re: Should We Resign Dockery???

as someone else said, your biggest friend on a football team is o line continuity. he needs resigned at reasonable money. i think the redskins biggest fear is if mr dockery has a monstorous season and goes to the probowl. then he might walk. you cant have your line eating up that much cap. anyone know how old randy thomas is?

Yeah...I think you have to sign him again. Must keep the consistency in the offensive line to make this all work!

No doubt, Yes, end of subject
I am tired of being a special teams ace, but I really have nothing to say.

Re: Should We Resign Dockery???

I agree with the other posters who mention O-Line consistency. As far as the cap goes, I don't know enough about it. I think the FO has done a pretty good job with the cap (although the media would have you think otherwise), and if they think the cap will work, then I say do it. It also seems to me that O-Linemen peak later than most other positions, and he has progressed steadily over the years.
