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.
Good post, Schneed. I agree.

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

So it looks like it will be a 2009 pick, conditional pick 4th or 5th (depending on playing time I suppose)

Not a bad deal I suppose. He's old, but he can still hold it down for another couple of years.

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

So is there a possibility that Wade could play LT until Samuels comes back? I know he's not 100% himself and it matters less to me since Campbell probably won't play anyway, but it might be some improvement over Heyer. Or does Wade's failure at LG mean he is purely suited to playing the right side?

If Wade is back to being a backup tackle, then I don't see why he shouldn't do exactly that - backup an injured tackle.

BTW, assuming there isn't some poison pill aspect to the Kendall deal, his health or some other surprise, he looks like a brilliant acquisiion, if you look at him as Dockery's replacement. (As oppossed to an act of desperation) Less expensive and at least as good at the very worst. He is oldish but we can just say experienced instead.

I guess I have to give it up for the FO. They never would have gotten a deal like this in FA. I prefer the approach of putting together your team and soldiering forward regardless, but this move seems like it was too good to pass up. (I guess I have visions of Snyder getting carried away and plotting more and more trades every time someone makes a bad play in a pre-season game)

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

Hopefully this allows Wade to go back to his natural position, because frankly Jansen looks like poop. We may need Wade to fill in for Jansen at some point.

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

It's a nice aquisition but it seems like it will be a while for him to learn the offense.

I don't see any offensive cohesion with him until the second half of the season.

I like the add, but I don't want to be a dreamer.

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

Don't know if Wade can play on the left, but I imagine he can, if he was going to LG. But having him backup Jansen is crucial.

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

This is a great short term signing by the Skins. Kendall will be able to fill the void at LG, Wade just couldn't get the job done, but who knows if Jansen struggles at RT Wade could jump in there right away. I now feel a hell of a lot more comfortable about the O-line depth. Samuels, Kendall, Rabach, Thomas, Jansen starting, and Wade, Pucillo, Heyer, and Fabini as capable backups. One thing that concerns me is how old our Line is, we're definitely going to need to get some youngblood in here after this season, but we still have this season to be excited about.

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

I like the trade.

Just an observation: are the New York Jets officially our farm team, or is it still unofficial?

I agree, AND we still have a good number of high draft picks left for us to TAKE said linemen with.

Re: KENDALL to the Redskins (confirmed)

Great move FO. i hope this sures up the oline issues. Also I think you guys are right about getting rid of Marshal to clear room for Kendall, and also upgrading the position of LB with signing of Godfrey. Now that we seem pretty set on our roster, we should concentrate on getting cooley locked up for years to come. Hail!!

CNNSI is reporting either a 2008 5th rounder or a 2009 4th rounder, presumably based on playing time, but they could very well be wrong. If that is the deal, barring injury, it would appear that the 2009 4th rounder would be the most likely outcome. By the way, Kendall apparently was signed through 2009 by the Jets (with base salaries of $2 million for 2008 and $2.393 million for 2009; ESPN.com). Anyone know how the Redskins dealt with the contract? Adam Schefter reports a 2-year contract (is that an extension, or was the old Jets contract just voided out?). Just curious, but all the details probably aren't out there yet. At this point, I like the move, probably the best option they had and a 4th rounder two years out doesn't seem so bad to me (at least in 2007 it doesn't).

Exactly, hopefully we keep those high draft picks to get someone. I wouldn't throw our 1st rounder on a lineman, but we can definitely find quality guys in the 2nd, and 3rd rounds.
