Looks Like we're Pushing for Ladell

Running back Ladell Betts is close to agreeing to a contract extension with the Redskins, according to numerous NFL sources, and the Redskins are working hard to prevent the veteran from hitting the free agent market.
-- Washington Post

Not sure how much stock to put in this but looks like Duckett was a one year plan.

I appologize if out there I tried to see if anyone posted this and didn't see it.

Re: Looks Like we're Pushing for Ladell

Seriously, and that rumor that the redskins went and got him to prevent the eagles from getting him is rediculous, if that is actually true, I might get sick to my stomach

Re: Looks Like we're Pushing for Ladell

I guess we're going to go down the bag on the Duckett deal path again.

I agree in hindsight the move stinks. But at the time we were looking for an insurance policy for Portis, and Betts in the past hasn't proven to be very durable. Turns out it was an expensive insurance policy we didn't need.

On the topic of Betts though, I'm glad we're pushing to keep him. Perhaps a sign that the team will look to reward their own more often?

Re: Looks Like we're Pushing for Ladell

Yeah I'd rather not have my thread turn to a bag on the Duckett deal thread. I figure whats done is done, both are great backups.

Re: Looks Like we're Pushing for Ladell

Good news and a good move to try to keep Betts (still a stupid move to trade for Duckett-i couldn't help it- i promise never to mention it again until the draft next year).

Re: Looks Like we're Pushing for Ladell

Ladell is definitely a true redskin. Always plays 100%, fights for that extra yard, and I can't remember him ever complaining about lack of touches in the past despite his backup status. If we are gonna stay a running team, it is important for us to sign ladell and dockery, indicating that we want "redskin players" to help us execute "redskin football". I'm confident that we will always be able to run the football as long as we have this veteran O-line, with sellers, cooley, and betts or portis in the backfield.

Re: Looks Like we're Pushing for Ladell

I really hope Betts does sign. We need him for depth. He's no Portis though.

As for Duckett. I think it was a great move considering Portis was hurt. He was insurance, only. But I sure would like to see more of him out there the rest of this season!

Totally agree. That's what insurance is all about. Insurance against the unknown future. I pay a SHITLOAD ( like most of you) every year. I rarely use it.
I would love to find a useful place for Duckett as well. Sellers leading for Duckett.........can't beat it

Re: Looks Like we're Pushing for Ladell

i'd love to keep ladell. let's face it, rbs just don't last long and we need all the quality depth we can get. ladell could likely start for most of the 32 nfl teams (i know he is now).

Re: Looks Like we're Pushing for Ladell

Hell, Betts is the best receiver we got this year!!!! I do believe he leads the team in reception and if not its pretty close!

I hope he resigns as well. He is a good solid backup that can step up when needed.

Re: Looks Like we're Pushing for Ladell

I am curious though if he's stepped up his performance this year because he's playing for a contract. By "stepping up" I mean play through injuries he normally doesn't play through
