all these are mediocre players at best (except Griffin). with a player like Branch, Jenkins or Hollis Thomas that would free up the double team off of others on the line which will cause more pressure and effectiveness of the secondary

Could be, but do they have the same agent, because apparently he was there with Kris yesterday.
Hell, maybe the ravens are going to try to get him and he's just looking in PG because he went to UMD and knows that area.

You can say the same thing in reverse. If we had better ends and secondary it would take pressure of the middle. Defensive tackle is not the weak point of our defense. Not even close.

The problem is that we have holes everywhere on defense. I agree that we need better ends, but DTs are the heart and soul of a defense. They aren't as sexy as LBs or DEs as they don't get the stats, but if you can't get pressure in the middle your defense is going to suck (see Redskins 2006 defense). I saw a lot more pressure coming from the edges last season than I did up the gut.

Re: A Kris Jenkins Rumor

Jenkins is a monster when healthy... imagine him pairing up with Griffin?! Wow!

Injuries are definitely a concern with him though.

I think your mistaken about the Elvis sighting, because I believe I saw him at Wendy's, however that is a simple mistake as they are owned by McD's.

Are you kidding me? Elvis works at a truck stop in Natchez, MS, and moonlights as a lounge singer on one of those Gambling Riverboats.

Kris Jenkins would be a good pick up, if the price is right. Plenty of other areas need to be met before overspending on a DT.

They are the most important position on the field, and with that in mind ours are likely inadequate. We have a bunch of guys who can play, but it's a position where we need to get a stud. That's why we should draft Branch.

My dad builds houses in Montgomery and PG Counties, and today his sales guy told him that Kris Jenkins (DT - Car) was in today looking for a new places to live with his agent. I know that Jenkins went to UMD, so that could be his only association with the area, but the sales guy (who sounded like he didn't follow football) seemed to think that he was moving to the area because he was going to play for the Skins.
I know free agency doesn't start for over a month, but maybe he knows something and that's why he was looking for a place close to FedEx. Or, it could just be a senseless rumor or miscommunication or whatever, but I figured I'd pass it along anyways.
I will take this for what it is. A grain of salt. If this is true I will only say this. NO MORE FREE AGENTS. Bringing in players from another system is just not the way to go and every Redskin fan should know this. Does anyone remember Dana Stubblefield? Or how about Dan Wilkinson?

I agree. The defensive lines biggest problem is age. We have few draft picks, and at least two need to go to this unit.

I like Kris Jenkins, but he and Griffin are very similar players. We'd be better off with Alan Branch. Gotta inject youth if we are going to survive the next few years.

Exactly. We need a serious youth movement on defense and it might take some time. We need to build just like Tennessee is doing it.

Jimmy Johnson was on Brian M. show today and he said the Redskins are always looking for the quick fix. Well bringing in more FA's is just a quick fix. Let's draft this year and next year and try and stockpile.

One of the problems is Joe S. keeps getting hurt. We got enough mileage out of him and if a smart GM was here, he would have realized that we needed a young player waiting in the wings. Perhaps Goldston is the player but who knows. He played ok. But the main reason we kept getting gashed on the run was Carter, Marshall and Holdman. Carter and Marshall should not be in on run downs and Holdman just needs to be cut, or be in a back-up role.

I agree. We need a behemoth run stuffer. That will improve our LBs in run defense, and our DEs in pass rushing. Doesn't Branch fit that mold?

Re: A Kris Jenkins Rumor

When Kris Jenkins is healthy, he's one of the top 5 DTs in the NFL. He is so significantly better than any of the DTs on the current roster that it's not funny. In fact, I think he may be better than any DT the Skins have had for this entire milennium. Maybe the last DT the Skins had who was equal to Jenkins was Dave Butz?

The problem is that he has spent a lot of time on the sidelines with injuries. So, if the Skins were to sign him - and he will cost way more than a league minimum with incentives to get him signed - the whole thing could go south with another injury. Or, the Skins interior defensive line could get significantly better overnight if he stays in the lineup...

Alan Branch might become a premier DT in the NFL. Or he could become "Dan Wilkinson" who was also projected to be a monster on the DL for whomever was lucky enough to get him. That never quite materialized, did it?

Someone said the defensive line's major problem was age. I don't agree. I admit the defensive line is old, but more importantly, the defensive line is lacking in physical talent. That's harsh, I know. But what team in the league would trade their four defensive line starters for Carter, Griffen, Daniels and Salavea even up? Surely none of the teams in the playoffs... Yeah, I know these are great guys who fight their guts out every week, but the fact is that they don't get the job done most of the time.

Would I sign Kris Jenkins? Probably not at the price he would cost if he were out there on the free agent market. And to inherit his current contract, you'd have to trade for him and the price to acquire an All-Pro DT would not be cheap. He'd be a significant upgrade, but I think I'd have to pass on the opportunity.
