Re: The Redskins' new approach to free agency

I'd be happy with the following
- FA WR (Johnson or Hackett)
- Stud D-Lineman on the first round (Calais Campbell anyone?)
- Add depth at CB/OL/DT positions with the lower rounds
- Maybe add depth at the above positions with a cheap free agent
- and the big one...less conservative offense that allows JC to use our offensive weapons effectively

This way, we don't need to overspend in free agency, keep our picks, and maybe insure that in future seasons we don't need to re-structure 50 contracts to get under the cap. After all of us complaining of the crazy-spending approach to the offseason, we should be glad the team is going the conservative route.

Re: The Redskins' new approach to free agency

In another bit of free agent news for the Redskins today, wide receiver D.J. Hackett did not accept the team's contract offer and plans to explore his options, a league source said.
"We're interested but it has to make sense for us," said Vinny Cerrato, Washington's executive vice president of football operations. "That's what we've said all along about the guys we like [in free agency], the money has to make sense, and that hasn't changed."

Translation...We don't have any money left!!!!

Re: The Redskins' new approach to free agency

while not exactly a FA signing i think the addition of d. hall is a pretty big off-season move.

go skins!

I'm not really alluding that we should pay Hackett, but to the "new approach" to FA....translation...we don't have any money. I'll buy the new approach after a few smart offseasons in a row.

Re: The Redskins' new approach to free agency

Does anyone think our new approach has anything to do with Gibbs being the team advisor? Snyder may be a bad owner to some people, but one thing he is for sure is a believer in Gibbs. Maybe Joe is whispering in his ear a little this offseason.

That's partially it. But it's also that we've been pretty smart about free agency/trades (active, but making good choices for the most part) the last several years with the exception of 2006. Unfortunately for a lot of people their calendars go 2000, 2006, and now.

Re: The Redskins' new approach to free agency

2006 wasn't all bad, I mean ARE and Carter are going to justify the money they got to come here. And Todd Collins, to everyones surprise, is no schlub.

You forgot about the great Adam Archuleta.

More bad than good, no doubt, but we did get some value out of the FA haul that year, even though we wasted a lot of money.

Aside from ARE's punt returns, he did pretty good at wide reciever, most people expected like 500 yds out of him, and he ended up getting 700 yards.

I like ARE but i'm not sure he's a #2 reciever. He really hasn't done alot w/ punt returns either, so you could call him overpaid.

All perfect except I dont mind being a little conservative as long as it yields production from Cooley, Protis, and Sellers on the ground/short passes. We can wear out teams that way.

if not ARE then who??? he was the best #2 we had at the time we needed one. That is why we need to either draft a WR or pick up a FA. ARE is excellent in the slot and on specialty plays. He is an asset to any team and I would not call him any more overpaid than Archuleta, Lloyd, or some of the crazy FA deals that were put together by the Raiders, Jets, and Browns. ARE has shown hard work and stepped up when we needed him. IMO that merits a little overpaying.
