Re: Redskins turned down Al Wilson!! plus great offer

if we could get a mlb who already knows the system who is just as good in free agency and keep our #6 pick then why not just go that way? we did the right thing

Cause the picks would have been nice too. I think they did the wrong thing by turning that one down. Al Wilson is a monster. Also, if they were willing to give up Wilson, why don't they just send Bly over?

Re: Redskins turned down Al Wilson!! plus great offer

Al Wilson has supposedly been mentioned in trade talks with the Panthers as well. I wonder why he's on the block

u dont do the deal because there is a player u can get at the same position without giving up that pick. if we want to get rid of the pick we can do so easily and im sure better offers will arrive, offers that include players that are in a position that we need that we cant get through free agency, i.e. cornerback.

I said they should just change Wilson to Bly, but anyway, Al Wilson would have been a long term answer at MLB, not a stopgap. Now, I love London Fletcher, but the guy's on the downside. If he plays more than 3 years here I'll be shocked. Al Wilson is still relatively young at 29. I think he's got about 5 productive years left. However, it doesn't matter cause it's not gonna happen. However, they should just replace Wilson with Bly and the deal should get done.

We might have turned that down,but there might be a new trade in works.

More Dre Bly

As I've been writing since Sunday, don't rule out a Dre Bly trade. I continue to hear this cat is pushing to get to DC bigtime, and it seems like the trade talks are still on. The stuff I hear just won't go away and I am beginning to think it is going to happen.

Denver does not want to give Bly an extension, but the Redskins will. I heard today that these trade talks actually stretch back to before the combine and have taken on various forms (including the Springs for Bly proposed swap that the Broncos killed because the Skins wanted cap relief, as reported first on this lil blog Sunday).

So now the Broncos are bringing in corner David Macklin and are open to dealing Bly. And the Broncos have a hardcore interest in Washington's sixth overall pick, numerous league sources have told me, and the Redskins remain very open to dealing it. As I've reported previously, the Redskins are also deadset on trying to get that third-round pick back from Denver they lost in the Duckett deal.

And, trust me, these teams have been talking about swapping draft picks for weeks, I hear on very good authority, and have already had the parameters of several potential deals in place. So, I still think there is a very good chance we see Bly come to DC, along with Denver's first-round pick, and second- and/or third-round pick, plus maybe a conditional late round pick, in exchange for the 6th overall pick.

In that scenario, the Skins would make a big play for the 19-year-old defensive lineman from Louisville, Okoye, to address that need, and get young offensive and defensive linemen with the additional picks (I hear they love this kid by the way). Also, Springs would likely get traded for picks (don't rule out him landing in Detroit, Arizona or even Baltimore) and Bly gets his money in Washington.

And trust me, I am not going to put everything I know out there right now, but the Skins could make this happen cap-wise, with little problem.

Al Wilson would've been nice but Fletcher already knows the system and fits in well.

Re: Redskins turned down Al Wilson!! plus great offer

I'm tired of dealing with Denver. Something tells me that they're going to come out with our 2008 2nd round pick if we go down that road again.

wilson is only 2 years younger, i dont think that makes a long term answer. he will be 30 at the start of the season and fletcher will be 32

Okay, but I still think they should make the same trade for Bly, which was actually the poorly illustrated main point of my first post. I think Al Wilson would have been nice, but Bly would be better. If they could have gotten Wilson instead of Flet I would have been happy. However, it didn't happen and I'm happy this way too.

Re: Redskins turned down Al Wilson!! plus great offer

al wilson is good, but fletcher + #6 is better than wilson and #21.

the broncos are making decent offers though.

Re: Redskins turned down Al Wilson!! plus great offer

we want dre and springs at corner next year trust me! i am telling you that it couldnt get any better than that for us...it also might give arch a chance to be more of a linebacker at safety if we have two guys who can cover the way those two do...carlos rodgers is a bust people...cant play a lick you tell me a good game he had and i will show you 5 bad ones, corners need to be consistent and he isnt.

there are so many scenarios out there but the more i look at it the more i say trade back in the draft to get more picks and or players via trade. i mean its obvious that we dont have the sack to make the 6th selection in the draft, but that might not be a bad thing all and all.

Re: Redskins turned down Al Wilson!! plus great offer

Arch and Rodgers are in the same boat in my book, its just nobody pointed out all of rodgers mistakes cause he is young and arch had a big pay day last year. but rodgers is in the same boat as arch if you ask me.
