Lemar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

What is going on - from starter to off the team. Whose cereal bowl did Lamar piss in? WOW!


FROM Profootballtalk.com:

'SKINS SHUFFLE LINEBACKERS

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Washington Redskins have signed linebacker Randall Godfrey. To create room for Godfrey, the Redskins released linebacker Lemar Marshall.

Godfrey, an 11-year veteran, has spent the last three seasons with the Chargers. Before that, he played for the Titans, Seahawks, and Cowboys.

Marshall entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2001, and has spent his entire career with the Redskins. He has been a starter for most of the past three seasons, and he was due to earn $1 million in 2007, the final year of his contract.

If this is true, I'll die.

Luckily, I don't trust anything AJFC says!

It looks like they didn't want to entrust him with the starting position in M. Washington's stead. They probably scoured the free agent pools for a possible starting LB. Godfrey is what they found.

Maybe this guy can pick up G. Williams defense better than anyone else available.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

Why would the release Marshall when there is so much other camp fodder they could cut to free up a roster spot? I call BS on this until there is a link from a reputable website.

No way, that couldn't be it. Some guy off the streets wouldn't know GWs defense better than Marshall.

But if this is true, and I have no reason to believe it isn't, Marshall just didn't return to form. It's possible they wanted him to hit the market sooner rather than later so that he get on with another team.

This is BS. We didn't release Lamar Marshall.

Daseal - that hurts! But I understand...

Lamar was supposed to be good enough for us to release Pierce - and surely we could have at least traded his ass for a can of tuna. Is he hurt? Did he tell Gibbs that Tony Stewart is overated? Did he ask Williams if he could re-enter the draft as a safety so the Skins will pay him big $$? There's got to be some explanation here...

Wow, interesting.

Must be a good reason for it.

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

I haven't heard anything over here. I'll see if I get some time to look into it.

On a somewhat related note though, Jeremiah Trotter has been released.

If Adam Schefter is reporting it I'd say it's true.

Should we give Totter another shot? Veteran minimum?

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

Assuming this isn't a bogus lead - anyone know anything interesting about Randall Godfrey? For instance:

1) Why he wasn't on a roster
2) Is he broken
3) Why no one has spoken about him this offseason
4) If he was a bear, what kind of bear he would be
5) Favorite Power Ranger

Re: Lamar Marshall released for Randall Godfrey??

This makes no sense whatsoever. If Godfrey turns out to be another Holdman, I will have lost all confidence in the FO.

No Sh*t.

I was just coming on to ask when the next round of cuts was due. Anyone know the date?
