NO! No more overpaid, often injured free agents. For some reasons, players think Washington is the place to go to get paid and not perform. Stop the madness.

Re: Javon Walker?

Javon Walker loves him some Javon Walker. He feels he needs to be #1, and he got edged out in Green Bay, and was outplayed in Denver this year. Marshall, Stokley and Scheffler out played an oft-hurt Walker this year, and he sees the writing on the wall.

He's got potential, but it seems like he's out for "me" and not the team.

Screw him. I prefer an NFL virgin. Maybe not as good at first, but you can develop him, and he's more likely to stay loyal to you.

Not much to add here. He wanted more money in Green Bay, they wouldn't give it to him, he got hurt, begged out and was sent to Denver. The knee injury from Green Bay lingered for the past two seasons and really shut him down for all but the first two games of this year. Now Denver "isn't a good fit". I don't know the whole story, but a big-armed QB, a bonafide young stud WR to take away any double-teams, a running game that produces. My only thought is that he felt he was healthy at the end of the year and just wasn't getting balls thrown his way. So he has two options:

A) Go through the off-season, get totally healthy, develop a rapport with Jay Cutler similar to the one Marshall enjoys, and have a dynamic pass offense in 2008.

B) Whine and complain and try to get traded to yet another team.

The guy chooses option B. No thanks. Plus he carries a big price tag and would require draft pick compensation (Denver gave up a 2nd rounder for him in '06, though I would think it would be more like a 4th and/or 5th this time around).

Forget Javon Walker,... Chad Johnson ! That's it. Chad Johnson will attract the attention Moss, Cooley, Randel El, and Portis can benifit.

Chad Johnson !!!

Nah, he's a distraction. We don't need that.

We have to spend money in other areas of need.
I think we are going to have to hope Espy, Mix or Thrash can step up next year.

Re: Javon Walker?

Distraction ? How ? Because of his interviews ? His play on the field is worth it to me.

At what cost? If he goes anywhere I might see him going to Miami for the first pick in the third round. Would the Skins be willing to give up pick 52 (or whatever their second is) for Johnson? Would sort of contract does he carry? I'm assuming he doesn't come cheap. Plus the Redskins really could benefit more from a guy like T.J. Houshmanzadah than either Chad or Javon IMO.

Creating bulletin board material, we don't need that.

Re: Javon Walker?

Sounds like Walker has made a bad name for himself. Can't argue w/that, but I still think the skins will at least listen to offers from denver & if they want to get rid of him you know they'll call here first.

I'm not a fan of bringing in C. Johnson, I think he's become more of a problem w/age. I see Walker as a better fit than Johnson, but I'm not for bringing in either if it costs a high draft pick.

I saw on JLC's blog that Mix was signed to a 3 yr. deal so maybe the Mix fans here will get a chance to see the kid play at WR. The fact that he signed a 3 yr. deal that late in the year says something, the front office & coaches must want to give him a chance & thought he might get scooped up elsewhere if they didn't sign him beyond this season. Usually players signed to a roster that late in the year are only for the rest of the season.

Let's hope the kid becomes a dependable wr & we don't need to draft or pick any up in free agency.

Yeah, this is pretty much what my co-worker, a huge Broncos fan, said about him. He has maturity issues and needs to have the attention on him always. I say we pass on him unless....everybody say it...

I couldn't agree more.

Here is a idea, how about getting good players from the NFL draft?
Hmmmmm?
Just tell Cerrato the draft has been moved to June.
