Philly always has cap room because they pinch pennies and splurge when needed.

If they don't trade McNabb, then they may make a move for him, and they can offer more for him than we can.

If we can get him, then great, but I dont think we need to overstep our boundaries

I'd personally prefer to see them pick up a 4th round pick though, so maybe that means trading down in the 2nd round and picking up a 4th rounder.
Devin Thomas would be great to have at the 2nd round. 6'2" 218lbs, he has one of the most productive seasons this year while being a focal point of opposing defenses all year. I think the only reason he may go into the 2nd round is because he is a Jr, and NFL scouts, unless they are drooling over you as a prospect already, tend to undervalue Jr's in the draft becuase they dont have another, senior, year to analyze them.

I am on the Devin Thomas and Jordy Nelson bandwagon. Lets ride!

Look at these stats after 8 years
Porter--284 catches 3900 yards 30 tds

Westbrook--285 catches 4300 yards 26 tds... Porter IMO wouldnt even be a band-aid at this point.. we should draft or try for #85.

Porter=Westbrook... and that aint good!
It work out well for the Raiders when they got Jerry Rice, the Eagles (for one season) and the Cowboys when they signed Terrell Owens. Free agents are not always a bust; unless they come here ;-).

I would be chuffed if Porter came here just for the reason that he has played in a WCO before and has some experience with the offense the Skins will be running.

As much as I would like to get Chad Johnson in a Burgundy and Gold uniform the cost would be far to high to accomplish that feat (Draft Picks and a massive salary cap hit). The Redskins need another reciever, Jerry Porter is a free agent pick up who could be acquired in an affordable fashion and could very well work out here.
