its like the saying goes "One man's trash is the Redskins next overpriced free agent"

Re: why? (do we want to sign everyone's garbage)

Sign everyone's "garbage."

I sign my own garbage every week. I write directly on the hefty bag. In fact, I have a sharpie that I keep in my hat so I can sign garbage anywhere I go before I put it in the trash can.

By signing "garbage" I guess you mean that if someone is cut by another team, this means he is ready for the landfill, unless the Redskins race down and try to recycle him. And you are asking, why would we want to do that? Why not let people who have become garbage, by virtue of being cut, just be taken like any other garbage out to the landfill? Isn't that better than signing their garbage and then just strewing it out on the field at Redskins Park? We don't want teams to think that they can skip paying their garbage bill and just Fed Ex all their trash to Ashburn.

I can understand why Keyshawn disagreed with the Panthers' decision to toss him in the wastebin. I would object too. You get tossed in there and people throw their banana peels on you, their unfinished meals, their used dental floss, and then it's out the door, and into the trash compactor, and finally to an unceremonious burial at the town dump. One minute you're interviewing your team's draft choice on ESPN, and a few days later, you're lying there in a sea of refuse, cut to drift by your team, laughed at for your misfortune.

However, I'm reminded of the last part of the poem at the Statue of Liberty:

“"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!"” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

So maybe that's not a bad thing, to be the Statue of Liberty for the NFL. Bring us your wretched refuse, NFL! We'll leave the lamp on at Redskins Park for you.

Personally, I think that we need to look hard at every healthy DL and OL released by another team. Players at any other position need to be pretty exceptional (not washed up like Keyshawn or average like D. Jones). Our roster needs depth -- one of our greatest weaknesses last year -- so we need to be on the lookout constantly.

You know, that has always bugged me. Why do we ask for the huddle masses, wretched refuse and homeless? Shouldn't we ask for the smart educated and well fed few?

[Okay - thread hijack and Seinfeld rip-off both concluded]

That is meant to say that people who are rejected by their homelands, who have been excluded from wealth, religious freedom, from a decent standard of living, and who are thought of as refuse by their homeland - can come here to the welcome and loving arms of Lady Liberty, where we can make a country "E Pluribus Unum", (from the many, one), build a nation that gets its strength from unity, emerging from diversity, a nation of many diverse fabrics and strands that when brought together, are made into a quilt of great beauty and strength.
