They better not trade Johnson because we can't afford to give away any draft picks, especially a first and a third.

Good!!! The Redskins should beware of players who are perennially dissatisfied with their current teams. Surely, we don't need a clubhouse distraction no matter how talented the player---Chad, please stay away.

You make an excellent point, while I admire CJ's talent and the numbers he's posted the last five years, there's more to him than meets the eye.

Make no mistake, I'd love to have him because of the contribution he could make to the offense, but at the same time I have reservations about his ego, a new coach, and a young QB. If the team struggles initally with the process of learning a new terminology, would he be able to curtail his ego if he's not getting a lot of balls thrown his way? I love the guy's talent, but I'm apprehensive about how well he'd fit in.

Pretty much! We all know money talks and if the Redskins want Chad Johnson badly enough they'll spend what is needed to get him. While I'd love to have someone of his ability and star power on our team, I'm not ready to sign over the farm for him so to speak.

Re: Lewis: Johnson Going Nowhere

You should see my Bernard Berrian post, all the ppl there want CJ, even though we all know it's going to mean our 1st and 3rd pick. Once again, I hope we dodge this bullet like we did last year with Lance Briggs.

Re: Lewis: Johnson Going Nowhere

Do mention Bernard Berrian in the same sentence as Chad Johnson is absolutely terrible. Javon Walker I can see since he may be cut. Roy Williams could also be a great pickup for cheaper than CJ.

Exactly. It is called building leverage.

Agreed with Javon Walker, but if they cut him. That's my concern with CJ, we are going to give away a lot. I mentioned Berrian b/c he's an UFA, and the Redskins wouldn't need to give their picks away. I heard Riggo today talking about Andre Davis from Houston as well, once again anoter UFA.

Re: Lewis: Johnson Going Nowhere

Said this in another thread, but based on last years production and the expected production from these two guys in 2008, Chad Johnson would add roughly 1/3 of a win to our expected total if he replaced Santana Moss in the lineup.

1/3 of a victory. Unless you think Ocho Cinco is going to get a lot better than last year, or that Santana is going to get far worse, that's a pretty negligible difference, I'd say. A first and a third round pick and $20 million guaranteed are not as negligible.

No deal.
