Definitely surprise cut of the year for the Skins.

Perhaps more importantly though, this move tells me that they're concerned with Marcus Washington's health (more so than they're letting on) and wanted another veteran starting out there.
True, given the fact MW has been so banged up recently perhaps the coaches just aren't confident in having to start Marshall again? I wouldn't like the idea of him starting on the strongside either.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

I always hate to see career long skins cut or traded. Marshall always filled in wherever needed. I did get the impression from a couple of his comments in the offseason that he wasn't happy w/Rocky being promoted.
Maybe he was becoming a distraction?

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

Well, there was some initial shock for me because of what Lemar HAS done for us in the past, but when I think about it more, we have a very good bunch of young LBs. Rocky, Sartz, Blades...they all look like they'll be great. (Rocky already is).

I guess we're actually thinking about our future. We have begun making some huge successes out of draft picks and young talent in the last few years instead of relying on old vets...Taylor, Rogers, Campbell, Landry, McIntosh, Betts...there's probably plenty more.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

I think the Front Office just realized that they had almost gone through an entire offseason without casting aside another long-time skin and figured they had to change that.

I don't know, maybe he's injured, maybe he mouthed off to a coach, whatever the case is, I can't help but believe there had to be someone other than Marshall that could have been cut to make room for yet another guy who doesn't know our system.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

Now, that's a shocker! Damn, I thought Lamar would do just fine in a backup roll.

Me too, I thought he might get in on passing downs some for Fletcher.

Naw, LeMar's a pretty quiet, keep your head down, type of dude; can't imagine him mouthing off. I'm scratching my head on this one.

Well, this was about as smart as chewing rocks.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

This is a Bull Shit move if true. Marshall is a proven NFL LB. They do not grow on trees. I do not care if he is only good at WLB and not at SLB where we now have a need. There are several worthless back up LB on our roster that will never make it in the NFL. Dallas Sartz? Cut them before you cut a real player that will contribute and can back up all three positions.
The ironic part is I finally watched the Steelers game last night and Lemar played well. If true this is a bad move. Depth will be hurt by this move.
A coaches ego might be playing into this if it is true.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

It wouldn't be so crazy if Godfrey wasn't 3 1/2 years OLDER than Marshall, but this tells me that there wasn't a spot for Lemar, not only from McIntosh taking his spot (he earned it) but maybe another young LB will take some of his work too. We wouldn't have cut him and signed Godfrey if he was going to have a significant role.

Redskins.com has it on the main page. It's a video clip "Breaking News 8-21".

MAYBE that's why he needed to be cut, or have his pay cut. He's a proven LB that lost his job to a more talented and bigger young LB. He'd be making more than he'd really be earning as a backup, so maybe they didn't want to pay a backup player a starter's contract.

Football IS a business.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

Just heard it on Sports Talk 980 in DC. Not sure what the FO is doing cutting a guy who has experience and can play back-up roles at MLB and WLB. Just when I thought they knew what they were doing.
