also meant to add that maybe Danny & Vinny watched some of the big signings last year, e.g. 49ers, and see that it worked no better for them either. In addition, the Skins got great value out of a number of players this past season that were draft picks, undrafted or relatively inexpensive free agents.

Re: Cerrato: Skins won't be a big player in free agency

From our good....friend Peter King:

7. The Redskins are telling agents they're not going to overpay in free-agency this year, which would take an incredibly valuable stalking horse away from the market. We'll see how long this lasts, but I hear Washington has put a number on its top free agents, and if the Skins are outbid, they will be willing to let them go rather than up the ante. Bad news for agents. Great news for teams who hate Dan Snyder paying jillions for the Brandon Lloyds of the world.

-----------------------------------------
I'm really starting to think that Cerrato is starting to become a positive influence on Synder. It also looks like he learned a thing or two from Gibbs about picking players and building a team. I will say that the way he came to power was sketchy, but the guy seems to be doing a good job of balancing between what his coaches want and doing whats best for the team.

Re: Cerrato: Skins won't be a big player in free agency

I really dont see us signing that many free agents to begin with maybe 3 or 4 but nothing spectacular. I dont even see us landing Briggs anymore

I like it. I don't think we need more than 1 to 3 low-key free agent acquisitions.

Re: Cerrato: Skins won't be a big player in free agency

I love this path the Redskins are taking! Let other teams overpay for aging veterans and lets stock up on draft choices and low to mid-tier free agents. Yes Drew Rosenhaus and other agents hate this, but how many times have the Skins paid through the roof and been burned with massive signing bonuses and loss of draft picks for average play? Redskin fans - this is a great thing I think the Redskins need to get away from "winning the offseason free agency title" as much as possible. Signing high price vets strains your cap, hurts the teams ability to sign descent depth, and also makes retaining your own talent harder when you throw more money on outside free agents. Let Redskin One sit idle on the runway at the start of free agency when all the stupid contracts are being signed and than go after the midlevel guys and stick to the draft to build the team.

Re: Cerrato: Skins won't be a big player in free agency

Doing this now also is good for a not so obvious reason: It allows them to have the cap room to spend on a free agent in a future season if they are totally enamored with the guy.

Re: Cerrato: Skins won't be a big player in free agency

Call me crazy but maybe Vinny and Danny have actually learned something. Whenever we've had "quiet" offseasons we've made the playoffs... while whenever we've gone crazy in free agency it's resulted in losing seasons.

You're crazy But that is a very good point that more people need to realize.

Good point, that's the way the Pats & hate to say, Cowpokes, have done it in recent years. Use free agency to add those 1 or 2 guys that put your team up there.
