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

I like the move. I hope it is for a 5th Rounder if only that it may mean the Skins are at least trying to get as much value for their picks as possible. The Skin's draft next year is going to be filled with linemen both Offensive and Defensive

Even if we pay a fourth, I'll be okay with it. We may get more than one year outta the guy and, if so, that's a huge help.

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

Yeah, they just confirmed it on Redskins Radio. He just needs to pass a physical. I feel better about the Oline!!

If Godfrey is just as good as Marshall, why even let Marshall walk?
Yeah let's keep the Godfrey/Marshall talk out of this thread

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

I like the signing as it shores up the only glaring question mark on the O-line. I wish, however, we could have found a younger guard to trade for and had not traded our 5th rounder. A 5th rounder seems kinda high for a 34 y.o. disgruntled guard. Isn't that what Miami gave up for its new starting QB?

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I think we have all our DC's next year except for our 4th which we still owe as part of the Duckett trade last year.

Pete Kendall To The Rescue
The Redskins have acquired guard Pete Kendall from the New York Jets to fill their void at left guard, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Kendall, who has endured a rocky relationship with Jets management in recent years, is a smart, capable veteran who can replace departed free agent Derrick Dockery. He can play all three interior positions but the Redskins have an immediate need at left guard, with tackle Todd Wade struggling to make the transition to that position, and relying on reserve Mike Pucillo in that spot in last week's preseason game.

Kendall, who turns 34 next month, had begin working with the Jets starters again in recent weeks, and over the weekend teams that inquired about his availability were told that New York planned to keep him. However, the Redskins were eager to firm up the left side of their line - quarterback Jason Campbell was nearly lost for the season due to a hit Saturday night and could miss the remainder of the preseason - and Kendall was considered the best option available.

Kendall (6-5, 292) is in his 12th year and spent the last 4 with the Jets and was a first round pick by Seattle in 1996. He has started 156 games.

Three NFL executives who scouted the Redskins over the weekend all came to the same conclusion about Washington's issues at left guard, and time was running out for Wade to make the transition. Now, with Kendall here, Wade could go back to being a reserve tackle if need be - Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels has missed nearly the entire preseason with a knee injury - and Washington's depth on the line - considered a major deficiency by many scouts - is much improved.

The Redskins have been averse to trading any more 2008 draft picks - their 4th rounder is already gone from last year's acquisition of TJ Duckett - and I have not been able to nail down if they gave up a 4th or a 5th in 2009, but it's believed to be one of those two picks. They gave Kendall a $1 million raise as part of the deal as well, so he'll make $2.7 million this season. Kendall has played previously for Seattle, Arizona and New York.

Kendall is not here yet and must still pass a physical, but that looks like a mere formality at this point.

Good move by the Skins and one, frankly, they had to do because of the position they were in. Like people told me over the weekend, they were asking for trouble with the combinations they had.

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

I like the move, it should put an end to the experiment and speculation at the position. I have not liked what I've seen the last two weeks on the left side, this move let's me know the coaches were not impressed either. I'm sure we all were hoping the move with Wade would work out, but obviously that does not apear to be the case.

To me, the pieces of the puzzle all fit now. The 'Skins clearly have been working behind the scenes to acquire an answer at LG. They needed to clear the cap space, the Marshall move allowed them to fit Kendall under the cap and still maintain enough space to extend Cooley this year if they wish.

It may be just a rumor at this point, but I think the salary cap moves of late speak to this being a 100% done deal. I'd take it to the bank, Kendall is a 'Skin.

Great series of moves IMO. Way to go FO.
i actually like all that a lot. You're right about how lamar's cut makes more sense. I am actually really happy and content the way we did this.

I am really happy about this. Dockery wasn't worth the money and this is a good way to fix some wrongs. I still wish we would have locked doc up a year before but it is what it is.

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

Know what I love? The Bills paying $7 million a year for Dockery vs us paying $2.7 million this year for Pete Kendall.

And they both have the same strengths: run blocking. Dock certainly has more potential because of his youth, but man, I don't see a glaring difference between Dock and Kendall at this point in their careers.

Shrewd moves by our FO. Definitely doesn't make sense to pay Dockery that much when you can get a similar LG for a third of the price (draft pick notwithstanding).

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

Should any of this following statement by PFT be of concern?

"...It had become increasingly clear that a divorce was needed. Cimini devoted a recent item to Kendall's history of using painkillers to allow himself to play. Though Kendall stopped short of saying that he wouldn't continue to use medications in order to be able to suit up and perform, a source with knowledge of the situation made it clear to us that Kendall would not be using any pain medication if the team didn't adjust his contract..."

As SmootSmack stated earlier, PFT may not "filter" a lot of their rumors, but this issue of potential continued "use of painkillers" caught my eye...if true of course.

Two years from now, I think the Dockery non-signing looks even better for us. He'll be a few years older, and by then we should have acquired a top notch guard via the draft at a much lower salary.

Let's just hope we can make it through the season with Kendall and Pucillo at guard.

Well, his contract got adjusted here in Washington. He got what he wanted, the extra $1 million added to his salary. Seems like now he should be satisfied and would be willing to take any painkillers if need be.

I think that's a crappy rumor though, and just something to fuss over. I don't think this issue will have any impact on the Washington Redskins.

If the Pete Kendall experiment doesn't work out, it won't be because of the painkiller issue. It will be because he has to pick up a new blocking scheme, get used to new teammates, or because he actually gets injured.

For the record, I think the Pete Kendall experiment will work out just fine.

Let's hope so. So now we have two former Jets playing guard for us.

As an aside, Chad Pennington aint looking so good this preseason.
