Skins sign CB Jerametrius Butler

Redskins Sign DB Butler

Could this spell the end for Ade Jimoh?

Re: Skins sign CB Jeremetrious Butler

I saw that this guy had been cut and wondered if we were gonna pick him up. We had him signed to a restricted free agent offer a couple years ago but the Rams matched. Obviously, there is something about this guy that the skins liked.

It is getting awfully crowded at the CB position. Springs, Rogers, Smoot, Macklin and now Butler have all been starters in this league. I figure Springs, Rogers and Smoot are on the final roster with Macklin and Butler duking it out for the fourth slot. Not sure if we will keep 5 CB's.

The only way Jimoh makes it is if his special teams contributions carry him. They just might do that - Gibbs has praised him on those grounds often.

Re: Skins sign CB Jeremetrious Butler

this is a shock to me. I remember it being reported that we were talking to him a while back. Maybe he's not really regained form from that 2005 knee injury & he's not a lock to even make the team. He was a pretty good corner a few years ago.
I sure hope this has nothing to do w/springs, and for that matter I'm not ready to see the Ade go either!

Re: Skins sign CB Jeremetrious Butler

I spelled his first name wrong by the way it's Jerametrius, not Jeremetrious.

Re: Skins sign CB Jeremetrious Butler

Well, we may very well be planning on carrying 10 to the 53 man roster, but even so, you figure that either Macklin or Butler will be the odd man out.

Re: Skins sign CB Jeremetrious Butler

I think our CB depth is pretty stellar right now. Other than Springs, I think all these guys are on the right side of 30 and, while not "shut-down" corners all capable of handling No.2 receivers without much help. Just off the top of my head, I would take our number three corner (whoever it ends up being) against any No.3 WR in the league. Even if Springs goes down with an injury, we are okay (not great - but not crippled either) as I think our No. 2 corners can do a credible job against all but the top 5-10 No. 1 WR's (Rogers/Smoot on Steve Smith? Can you say "Toast me up a TD").

Re: Skins sign CB Jeremetrious Butler

I am also kinda pulling for Westbrook. I am hoping the "he's a diamond in the rough" reports are right and that he turns out to be a real deal steal. He will probably have to be a practice squadder for this year however.

Re: Skins sign CB Jeremetrious Butler

In his latest blog JLC (well acually a guest blogger) said this...
"He's also durable, having never missed a game in his 6-year career. Schoebel could draw double-teams, which would free up interior linemen Cornelius Griffin and upcoming talent Kedric Golston to wreak some havoc, and give fellow end Andre Carter many sack opportunities. " I say offer Buffalo Shawn Springs and 2nd or 3rd rounder and see what happens. Given their glaring need at cornerback with the recent departure of Nate Clemmons and the uncertain long-term status of Schoebel, I think this deal makes a great deal of sense for both teams."

Maybe he was right on and the skins are gearing up to make a push for him. Knowing our depth at secondary would you guys give up Springs for Schoebel?

You can never have enough depth.

Re: Skins sign CB Jeremetrious Butler

It's most likely just a depth signing, the Skins went hard after Butler a few years ago when he was a RFA, so I know they liked him then. Maybe they think he's an upgrade over Macklin.

Re: Skins sign CB Jerametrius Butler

I know they wanted him in the past and I guess they ended up getting their man for a lot less than before. The secondary must have been a huge weak spot for us last year in the coaches eyes. Between smoot and spring's injury history I can't blame em bringin in all these guys.

Re: Skins sign CB Jerametrius Butler

I think unfortunately this may be a case of extreme stubbornness. They didn't get him in 2004 so they've been relentless for the past 3 years that they had to get him at any cost. And they wouldn't rest until they did, not keeping in mind that time has passed and he's now older and has gone through some injuries since they first went after him.

Not too thrilled about this move, especially with the signing of Macklin.

Re: Skins sign CB Jerametrius Butler

You just don't want Ade's job threatened.

Admit it - you have a man crush on the Ade.

Re: Skins sign CB Jerametrius Butler

Could this mean that Springs is still on the trading block? Maybe.
