Re: Free Agent DB's

here's why we didn't go after smith - he's going to cost an average of 2.5mill per year, and we only have 1.4mill in cap space.

that said, it's not like he has elite speed either. I still think the fallback 1st round option or our 3rd round pick can get us the same level of safety at a near vet min price.

Shouldn't the eagles be looking for a Wide Receiver? LOL. Oh well.

Re: Free Agent DB's

The only thing we really need to do in FA this off season is to add depth in free agency at the CB position.

Plus, we've got plenty of time to address it, so no reason to jump in to the bidding right now.

Re: Free Agent DB's

Florence is off the market. Ironically he's going to Jacksonville. To me that sounds like GW is trying to get back at the Redskins anyway he can.

Re: Free Agent DB's

Or maybe they just need a CB and he's the best one available.

I wouldn't read that far into it. The guy is a solid corner, but we weren't exactly pining over him, and Jax needs some corner help. Gregg Williams isn't their GM.

That said he was a guy I really hoped we'd snag. Damn.

Re: Free Agent DB's

Woah, they're giving Florence $6M a year!!?? For a guy who's never had more than 4 INTs in a season? I'll say it again, weak FA market this year...

Damn is right. We might never sign a first week Free Agent again. All the more reason to keep our 1st day picks. We should be aiming to draft 3 starters every year. The amount of money out there is getting ridiculous. Ironically Lance Briggs might be signing for a discount (not for the Redskins mind you).

However Redskin 1 was tracked in Marrieta, GA which has the boys at Extreme Skins thinking that the Redskins could be talking to DeMario Williams or Rod Coleman. My guess is that they're probably taling to DeMario but then again thats only my opinion.
