Rookies are paid based on where they were drafted, not much that a team can do about that.

Re: Report: Redskins Release Casey Bramlet

I agree, I thought they should sign both landry and dockery, and forget the free agent CRAP

Re: Report: Redskins Release Casey Bramlet

So just sign no free agents at all?

What's the point of that? Free agency can be just as valuable as the draft when used correctly. When you compare what the Skins did in free agency this year to the rest of the league, I thought they were selective and smart for a change, and the deals they gave out were very reasonable.

Re: Report: Redskins Release Casey Bramlet

They could move collins over and make him a QB assistant coach, thats all he seems to be good for. Make Palmer #3,sit with Brunell at #2 and pray that Campbell doesnt go down. With Campbell in there, Ladell Betts profited from the fact that defenses finally feared the long ball, something they dont have to do with Brunell in there. He's been done for a couple years now.

Re: Report: Redskins Release Casey Bramlet

how were the redskins effective in free agency if they did not acquire any D-linemen? We went 5-11 with the D-line we had last year, with the worst defense in the league, the least sacks, and a horrible run D. I like the looks of the offense for the most part, but the D-line? are you serious?

Not only that, but per NFL rules all teams must submit their depth charts to the league prior to the first preseason game (I'm pretty sure it's the first preseason game).

Why that's a rule, I don't really know. I think it's primarily for media purposes actually. But every team has to submit it. Just about everyone knows rankings are subject to change and, like you pointed out, it's often just the way the depth chart was at the end of the previous season. But it's required.

They filled a glaring need at MLB and significantly boosted the CB depth.

As far as the d-line goes there must be some very logical reasons as to why the felt they could stand pat.

We'll see very soon what that thinking was.

So, grabbing a tackling machine will somehow not sure up the run defense? What are you talking about? Getting DB help to try to bolster a defensive backfield that gave up big play after big play last season, that wasn't a good move?

Basically, you're saying the Skins should have given Dockery whatever he wanted, drafted Landry and then tried to pick defensive lineman, exclusively, after the first round. Because, as you said, "screw free agency." That's some of the worst logic I've ever heard.

I wish they had picked up a d lineman as well and I also wish they had drafted some, but just because they didn't does not mean that the rest of the offseason acquisitions were horrible. C'mon.

It's kind of ironic really. The interior of the D-Line is one area that the Redskins are definitely looking toward deep in their draft, and not free agency, for improvement (with Golston and Montgomery) and yet they're getting lambasted for that.

Re: Report: Redskins Release Casey Bramlet

We all know 5 years ago MB was a good NFL qb. But I'm talking about TODAY. THE PRESENT.

If an NFL qb can't throw a 15 yard out then it's time to hang it up. And from what I saw he can't throw the ball with any velocity what so ever. I'm not the only one saying it. Some of the beat reporters that cover the team and watch all the practices are saying the same thing.

It might be your opinion that the d-line is the weakest position... but actions speak louder than words and with the lack of moves along the d-line the Redskins coaches have spoken loud and clear that they don't agree with your opinion.

Well first of all, because I think the staff believes with the development of the young DTs and the way Carter came along at the second half of last season the D-Line will be significantly improved.

Also, how about we look at it this way. Suppose a team had a terrible running game. Well on the one hand you could just get a new running back. Or you could say we have a good back but he needs protection up front-so let's get new linemen, or we have a good back but our receivers are no threat so the defense can stack the box-so let's get a deep threat at receiver than can draw a double team.

You follow?
