Redskins Could Become a Suitor for Strahan?

washingtonpost.com
**Last paragraph of the article**

Says Snyder has been impressed with Michael Strahan and should he become available, he could pursuit him.

This is by far the dumbest thing Snyder could ever. Our D-Line is already suffering from aged players. Why add another? He's 35 and could ask for a hell of a lot of money.

Very true....the 'Skins should start looking for a solid back up to Ladell Betts...looks like Portis and his gimpy ass knee will be an issue all season.

Re: Redskins Could Become a Suitor for Strahan?

This makes me curious as to what the Giants want as far as compensation would go. Strahan said he wanted to play for a contender. I doubt he'd want to come to DC.

Redskins won't sign Strahan unless Strahan wants to stick it to Coughlin for a lesser than 4 million style 1 year contract. He's 35 recently divorced hoping for some help. Turns out he'll end up jobless til late preseason....

much worse than that IMO. When Deion was here, he played well, but he was no longer prime time & teams threw his way rather than to champ's side. Strahan is old & coming off injuries, I'm not even sure he would be able to take Daniels' starting job.

That's BS. Strahan wants to be paid.

Re: Redskins Could Become a Suitor for Strahan?

Although I believe Strahan could go somewhere and make a bit of a difference. I dont think he is the player that he wants to get paid to be. He is asking for way to much for someone not just on the downside of his career but nearly at the bottom of the hill. he wants to much and is to much of a risk. But if there is a team that likes these old players who only stick around for a year or two and are a shell of the player they were it is Dan Snyder and the Redskins.

I agree NO to Strahan!

Re: Redskins Could Become a Suitor for Strahan?

He's definitely looking for one last payday and Snyder is the only one dumb enough to give it to him. Please don't let this happen.

Re: Redskins Could Become a Suitor for Strahan?

I mean, if we didn't go after any fresh talent in the draft, I can't see us going after Strahan unless it's some divisional thing a la Arrington.

Re: Redskins Could Become a Suitor for Strahan?

Strahan wants big money and probably atleast a 5 year contract, he aint coming cheap. he is 35 so he is not young in football years. Like I said I do beleive he can still produce a little but he is not going to produce what he wants money wise.

Re: Redskins Could Become a Suitor for Strahan?

It is all about the ROI (return on Investment) and I dont see the ROI in Strahans case high enough.

Re: Redskins Could Become a Suitor for Strahan?

Strahan was not a horrible player, but if he had played in Seattle or Green Bay, most people would not know who he is. He is largely a mythological creation of the New York Press. Mike Lupica probably had him on speed-dial. Pass.

Maybe we can get TJ Duckett for 3rd and 4th round draft picks! :smashfrea

I don't care for Strahan either.. Old and has missed a lot of games the past 2 years..
