UFAs Briggs and Samuel

Given that two of our young defensive players, Rogers and McIntosh, are recovering from serious injuries, I was curious to get people's opinion on two big time unrestricted free agents: Lance Briggs and Asante Samuel. I know that Briggs is the most likely out of these two to come to Washington, but Samuel could be a nice addition to our defensive unit. I honestly think that had Samuel not gotten tagged last year by the Patriots, he would've come here.

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

I am not entirely opposed to the idea of bringing Briggs here for the right price. As for Samuel, I think the draft has several good DBs that the need for him really isn't there. Especially not at the high price he'd command.

Can Briggs play within your defensive system ,many questions on that.As for Samuel if he leaves he's going to the Jets.

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

Briggs would be nice, he likes 2 hit but only at the right price i don't want 2 over pay for anyone i'm tired of doing that, its not my money but i'm tired of other teams laughing at us. Samuel's might be a product of the system i hold judgement on him plus i think he's goiing to ask for way 2 much $ can't blalme him but i think it's out of our price range.

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

I not big on Briggs but like for the Skins to look at Antwan Odom DE and Tommy Kelly DT! The go get Brayant Johnson WR and Jacob Bell G! Then with our draft get a DT and a CB in the first two rounds! As you can see by the Giants great season just played a great D line works well with good LB's. We don't need Briggs!

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

Both are character issues. Both are good players, but they both would want tons of cash. I say our LB's are fine...draft a DB and see if you can maybe get a little veteran depth for cheaper.

I agree with the samuel comment. I believe that he is a product of a system. He is a good player, but I don't think that he is Champ Bailey or Nate Clements type talent. He is a good player, but I don't want to pay the money that he is asking.

I couldn't agree more.
He is a smart cover 2 corner. He wants too much money for his skill set. He can't take a WR out of a game.

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

I hope we sign neither. Briggs is one of the most over rated defensive players in the league in my book. He tackles well and is average in coverage, he cant pass rush and knowing chicago is willing to let him walk should be a red flag. I have a feeling if we signed him it would be another Jeremiah Trotter situation. I dont think we go after samuel either because we were targeting Clements last year until the niners gave him that ridiculous contract...some team will give samuel the same money if not more and i hope it isnt us.

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

Both of them are overrated and will cost way too much money. It would be a mistake to sign either of them.

First question is what is going to be done with McIntosh and Rogers?

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

are jacob bell and odom even free agents, if they are I say these would be excellent moves for the redskins. if not trade ladell betts for rights to Pacman Jones, Jacob bell and antwan ODOM. then draft jamall charles in the third round from Texas

I believe they both are free agents. Regardless, suppose they weren't-did you just say trade Betts for Odom, Bell, and Pac Man??

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

it could go either way..i think Briggs would bring the immediate impact over samuels. But i wouldn't mind having either one

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

Briggs would be nice but he would be too pricy... We all know by the way he held out in Chicago that he thinks hes way better than he actually is.
