Bernard Berrian

I don't know why the Redskins aren't considering signing Bernard Berrian from Chicago, who is going to be an unrestricted free agent, instead of toying with the idea of signing Chad Johnson. Berrian is 6-1, 185 lbs, and had some good stats this past season: 71 Rec/951 Yds/5 TDs. Keep in mind that this guy had the Grossman/Griese/Orton trio of mediocre QBs throwing at him, and he still performed better than S.Moss (61 Rec/808 Yds/3 TDs) or even Randle El (51 Rec/728 Yds/1 TD).

Berrian would give the Skins the tall possession receiver they've been craving and they wouldn't have to give up any picks. I think that a WR tandem of Berrian, Moss, and Randle El, along with Chris Cooley, would give the Redskins a solid passing game. Plus we wouldn't deal with the baggage that Ocho Cinco brings, nor worrying about shelling out tons of $$$. I hope that now Gibbs is gone, DS doesn't go back to his old ways of giving up picks at the drop of a dime.

Re: Bernard Berrian

Berrian is not a possession reciever by any means he is a speedster

Re: Bernard Berrian

I'd sign him in a second. How durable is he?

yep that's all plus he does demand a extra attention like CJ or a possession WR.

Re: Bernard Berrian

Berrian has had decent stats with mediocre QBs, I think he could do better with Jason Campbell. In regards to being a possession receiver, I'm not an expert on that, but Chad Johnson is 6-1 and 190ish lbs...and the Redskins are looking to get him. Granted that by no means I'm saying that Berrian is better than CJ, but he has the same physique, and could probably thrive with the Redskins and the WRs we have. I'm afraid that the Redskins are going to overpay and waste draft picks with CJ. I mean, New England only gave up a 4th round pick for a head case like Randy Moss, and had he failed, they only would have loss little. I think the Redskins, should they convince the Bengals, are going to pay a lot to get CJ, and it will be a catastrophe if he doesn't produce here in Washington.

Plus, come on, Berrian would be better than Jerry Porter (which was brought up in another thread) and would improve the WR corps.

Re: Bernard Berrian

Another thing, I think it would be great to get CJ, but it just seems impossible and if it happens, I'm concerned that redskins are going to start handing out 1st and 2nd round picks. I mean, just think that last year, we were very close to having the Redskins give away their 1st round pick for Lance Briggs, we didn't and we got Landry. I get the feelings that Danny is going to overspend/overcompensate for CJ.

Re: Bernard Berrian

Landry was a hit or miss like all college players are R. Bush hasn't lived up to the hype he got. Calvin Johnson to me is medicore in the NFL. It's a big difference from college to pro. They can be the heisman trophy and not starter or get picked until the 5th round (Troy Smith) but he was so good it college. CJ has proven to be a pro bowl cailber player every year not one not two every year and Benard Berrian has not.

Re: Bernard Berrian

I wouldn't say "give away" The rumored deal would have been a swap of first round draft picks (and yes I understand they had the 31st overall) plus we get Lance Briggs. We're not just throwing away the pick

Yeah and we were getting a pro bowl caliber player if Landry hadnt panned out everyone would be pissed that we didnt pull the trigger (even though Briggs will be here in 2 weeks)

Re: Bernard Berrian

But see, aren't people complaining how Snyder keeps giving up draft picks? I mean, I am glad the Briggs trade didn't work, and we got a great young player out of the draft. I'm telling you all, if the Bengals trade CJ, we're going to be giving up a lot, and ppl will be complaining about it. Oh well.

Some people just complain to complain though. That's not going to change

Re: Bernard Berrian

I like the idea of Berrian.

Seems to have the same physical specs of Johnson. I'd take him over Johnson.

Re: Bernard Berrian

We will probubly still end up with Briggs. He wanted us like a passion and I belive the feeling was mutual. Now with McIntosh he may be back in time he may not. Yes he is healing but can he put a hit on someone and take one?

We definitly need to do something about our WR situation. I'm tired of picking up the WR and two weeks to two months we are letting them go. It's time to start getting and keeping good quality WR's. I would say find a way to give him DS standard norm of 30 mil. lol. and bring him on board to compliment Moss and maybe still go after CJ. Then we would have a couple of speed guys to set up a speed package forcing the defense to figure out who to cover, solid possession WR and two targets for the end zone in Cooley and CJ.

Then they can dump the older WR like McCardell, dump the non productive types like Lloyd, and Caldwell, I like Thrash...I was always a fan and happy to have him back but only to be used on SP for the most part? please, open up a roster spot for a more needed spot else where.
