Arizona to Franchise LB Karlos Dansby

Bummer dude. One high-quality, impact LB is off the market in all likelihood. I'm a believer that LB will be a need next season with Rocky hurt, and Dansby would have been a good fit. Even if we didn't want Dansby himself, this shrinks the supply of quality LBs on the market, which would drive the price up for everyone.

Of course there are much bigger and better things to think about with the game against Dallas only two days away, but I thought I'd mention it since several on the site have thought about Dansby.

Re: Arizona to Franchise LB Karlos Dansby

Didn't know he's been playing in the middle. Have to wonder if he would be as effective moving back to OLB. Maybe mike is his best position.

As we discussed in the thread about Briggs, OLB is a position of need, but I hope we gamble on a day 1 draft pick that can contribute immediately.

Re: Arizona to Franchise LB Karlos Dansby

Jeez, Rocky goes down and all of a sudden LB is a big need? I just don't see it. I like our depth and I think guys like Godfrey and Blades can hold things down in the meantime. Knowing how GW likes his backers I'm sure we might add a player or two to that spot, but I just don't think we need to go crazy and add a high profile guy.

With Dansby off the market, Briggs is really the only impact LB left out there. Since supply is so short, Briggs just got that much more expensive. The draft may be the way to go after all.

We'll definitely have to add a player or two, the question will be whether we're adding a starting caliber guy or backups behind Godfrey, Campbell, and Blades. If nothing else, Rocky's absence leaves a void in our depth which absolutely has to be addressed.

We can probably patch things together with Godfrey on running downs, Campbell on passing downs, and Blades mixed in on occasion. But for the long term, Washington is getting older, Fletcher is older, etcetera. Spending on Briggs is probably cost prohibitive now that Dansby is off the market, but I'd definitely be thinking of a 1st, 2nd, or 3nd round LB in the draft this year. Even when Rocky gets back in 2009, we're going to need youngsters at that position.

I agree that we don't need a big time signing, but it would be worth a draft pick or two in the middle rounds, mabye earlier if there's a good one available. Godfrey is old & we don't know that he'll even make the team, while Blades is ideally a mike. We need some depth there one way or another.

Look at it this way, we drafted 2 LBs last year, one made the team & 1 cut, then plan for Rocky to be out for 08, that's a net of 0 in terms of improving depth, which the staff said was a priority last year.

He's more of a down lineman type. Not that he isn't a good player, but I'm not feeling him as an LB in our system.

Re: Arizona to Franchise LB Karlos Dansby

This is the advice I think needs to be used right now for the Redskins on almost the whole team.

Keep and use the draft picks in place (if we can trade down and pick up more all the better), and than fill the holes with mid-tiered and lower priced free agents and the team would be better off. We have enough high priced players on the roster, lets keep picking up cheap, "blue collar" players and I bet you that the stories of unheralded players like Lorenzon Alexander, Anthony Montgomery and Stephon Heyer keep appearing and pretty soon Dan Synder won't need to have Redskin 1 on the runway warming up at 12:01 every year when the free agent market opens up.

Re: Arizona to Franchise LB Karlos Dansby

I"M SO SICK OF LANCE BRIGGS. We have guys that have been around long enough to pick up the slack until Rocky get's back. This is why you have guys like Blades (who was a tackling machine in college) on the roster. What about Khary Campbell? He has started in the past for us and done ok. LB is does not seem to be an area of need. DE and O-line is where we need to start looking. Signing big name guys does not seem to work around here. It's all about how well guys can play together.
