THIS Years Free Agent Class Is Incredible!!

I know its early, but there are 3 very good corners on the market this upcoming season (Marcus Trufant, Asante Samuel, & D'angelo Hall)...Should we look to invest considering Spring is prob gone after this season?? More importantly, will we have enough to invest in one of these guys with our current cap situation

Re: THIS Years Free Agent Class Is Incredible!!

Trufant and Samuel are worth looking at but I would definitely pass on Hall. Too much of a headcase and he thinks he's much better than he really is.

Re: THIS Years Free Agent Class Is Incredible!!

I'm wondering ST's salary affect on the cap and if we would be eligible for cap relief due to him no longer being on the roster. I'd be interested to see how Denver and New England handled this with the League. Its sad to even think about this......

This has been discussed by Charlie Casserly among others and they have indicated that there is virtually no chance the Redskins will get any meaningful salary cap relief as a result of Taylor's passing.

I really like Trufant but at this point we have enough talent at CB compared to some other roster spots. We really need to address the offensive and defensive lines this year.

I disagree about having enough talent at CB. Plus, here's something that no one is really talking about yet: The NFL is a follow the leader league. There will be a lot of teams trying to copy the Pat's style next season, there will be alot of passing going on and we'll need to defend it. The only unit I feel confident in, heading into next season is our linebacking corps.

Re: THIS Years Free Agent Class Is Incredible!!

Right now, we're already 20 million over the 2008 salary cap. This will change once they convert some bonuses, but it should definitely keep us from being a player in this free agent class, unless Vinny Cerratto can work some salary cap magic...

Re: THIS Years Free Agent Class Is Incredible!!

I don't think it's such a lock that Springs is gone.

And if we do keep him, I still think we should draft a CB in the first round to groom into a starter in a year or two (Talib or Cason remain my favorites); though I keep hearing Derrick Harvey attached to the Redskins come draft time. Still early though.

If we do go the free agent route, I think we should keep any eye on Nnamdi Asomugha (sp?) from the Raiders. I think he can and will opt out. And he's the type of big, physical cornerback that Williams likes.

Asante Samuel battled with he Pats not to be franschised this year. He agreed to take the tag and the 7 mil under the stipulations that the team would not re-franchise him in 08 if he participated in 60 % of the snaps and the team won 10 games... The patriots will most likely lock him up long term

Are there any D-Line free agents in the market next year??

Asomugha -- if he opts out and we can get him, I would be THRILLED. A buddy of mine is a raiders fan, so I see some games. This kid is great. Big and Fast.

Re: THIS Years Free Agent Class Is Incredible!!

I say focus on the offensive line first, the defensive line second, then worry about everything else.

I second that, plus he's tall. I think he could be a bargain compared to the others. With our #1 pick, we should go for either a DE or WR, then consider OL and DB.

Re: THIS Years Free Agent Class Is Incredible!!

20 million in the red is a bad place to start free agency. Convert some bonuses and restructure some deals, it will still be hard for this team to compete with oither teams for the talents of a Asante Samual, Trufant.

Dallas is 20 Million in the black on the cap and you KNOW they will be shopping for some big-time talent in the secandary when free agency starts.

Thanks for not rubbing it in. Don't you have a Tony Romo poster to go jack off too?

Re: THIS Years Free Agent Class Is Incredible!!

How about the Skins stay out of the free agent market for a year and stick with what they got and build through the draft? I know this is not the popular route and "winning the offseason championship" creates excitement, but if we restructure the contracts to get under the cap and start the youth movement by rebuilding through the draft I think the team will be in a better position in the long run.
