Re: THIS IS ONLY A RUMOR: KENDALL to the Redskins

I'm happy giving up anything rounds 4-6 right now. I'm not going to nitpick.

Nobody significant. The Marshall move cleared all the space we'd need to take on Kendall.

Of course acquiring Kendall means we have to drop one player to stay at the roster max. But that will likely be some no-name dipshit who has no shot at making the team.

At this point, after the Marshall move, the salary cap is not an obstacle to adding Kendall.

I don't view this as a panic move like the Duckett deal was. Our LG spot really is a disaster, we don't have a Ladell Betts waiting in the wings on the O-Line.
I agree that it is not a panic move, we do need help on our line. I think it is right that they are making a move, but I just don't know too much about Kendall I guess.

Also it is interesting that Gibbs was vouching for the O-line a couple days ago, saying that Heyer has allowed no sacks, and now runs to get some help on the Oline. Another funny point about that no sacks stat, is that on the play that JC got hurt Heyer didnt give up a sack, but he still let the lineman blow by him and get to JC right as the ball was released. It would be interesting to see how many QB pressures and hits have come from the Oline.

Sorry, did not format correctly... he is tied for the 20th best guard ahead of Dock according to Scouts Inc rankings for 2007. Put as much stock as you want into that. Troy Aikman could not stop talking about how good a Guard he is and how the Jets would not be stupid enough to get rid of him during the preseason game.

Re: THIS IS ONLY A RUMOR: KENDALL to the Redskins

In addition, if you analyze the comments of Gibbs and Bugel recently, they have gone out of their way to defend the play of Stephon Heyer. They indicate that he was not responsible for the hit on Campbell's knee.

That tells me that they're pinning that play on the LG. Heisel slipped in between Heyer and Pucillo, but you didn't hear Gibbs or Bugel defending Pucillo at all. I think they feel it was Pucillo's fault.

And you know that hit to Campbell scared the living hell out of them. I'll bet the decision to acquire an LG was made right after that hit. They then started calling around, heard about Kendall, heard what he wanted money-wise, cleared the space by cutting Marshall, and made the trade.

That is an interesting point, and in retrospect cutting Marshall makes much more sense .

Well, I don't get it because if it was about clearing salary space, how come we paid Godfrey 300K more than Marshall? What am I missing here?

Re: THIS IS ONLY A RUMOR: KENDALL to the Redskins

I think, that while Godfrey is older, he's better than Marshall.

I haven't seen what Godfrey was paid. Do you have a link?

I assumed it was vet minimum.

Re: THIS IS ONLY A RUMOR: KENDALL to the Redskins

I'm sorry, I'm just not sold on Godfrey being better than Marshall. I'm not saying Marshall was a beast and I'm not saying Godfrey is a scrub. But Marshall has played in this system and started, and Godfrey...well, what have we seen of him in a Redskins uniform.

Unless Godfrey masters this system in a short period of time or he's a really good playmaker, I don't see the upgrade here. Again, only time will tell.

He got $1.3MM. I'll try to dig the link up for you.

Re: THIS IS ONLY A RUMOR: KENDALL to the Redskins

Found a link on the Godfrey contract, Adam Shefter:

Day of dealings gets focus back on the field

Quote:
Washington signed free-agent linebacker Randall Godfrey to a one-year, $1.3 million contract to help the Redskins linebackers become more physical than they’ve been.
So the Marshall/Godfrey move was a net-zero impact on our cap, for the most part. It was simply about who they thought would help us out more at LB.

As for Kendall, we still have the cap room, regardless of the LB move. But this does cut into our ability to extend Cooley and fit him under the 07 cap. It's cuts into our ability, but it doesn't make an extension impossible.

Well, granted it was seven years ago, but he mastered this system pretty well when he and Williams were in Tennessee together.

Re: THIS IS ONLY A RUMOR: KENDALL to the Redskins

If you put Marshall and Godfrey side by side and ask who's the better player, even at 34 I think most would take Godfrey. He's played under GW before so it shouldn't be a major task to get him up to speed. The main concern is getting him into football shape.

Marshall simply doesn't have the size to hold up on the strongside for an extended period of time. As I said earlier, I think GW had flashbacks of Holdman getting run over and didn't want to see the same thing happen this year considering Washington has some injury concerns.
