Paintrain, you are quite the smart ass today.
Very funny!

I'm sure he'll be a fine complement but I don't know that he's so much better than what we currently have, yet his contract would likely say otherwise.

As for Walker, yeah when he's healthy and motivated he's great. Question is will he be healthy and can he stay motivated.
My response is that your right. I don't think theres a great argument to be made for any of the free agent WR's(except Moss). They are all guys who have not done all that much in the league and are going to get paid mostly on potential. The best thing you can say about Johnson is that he was 3rd behind two great players and maybe he will bust out with more opportunity. And the best thing you can say about hacket is that he played in Seattle and knows the offense. In either case we will overpay based on what their actual production should merit. I rarely advocate trading draft picks but in this instance I believe that trading our #1 or #2 pick for a legitimate #1 WR is the correct course of action...it takes two to tango on that though.

Maybe they were thinking of Spencer Johnson

No trust me I couldn’t agree with you more, but, I use it a lot to get background on potential players when we discuss them on here and never have I seen them pull this kind of trigger. I just wanted to put it up as I thought it was really kind of strange....???

For Chad Johnson or Roy Williams I'd strongly, strongly consider it. I'd love to get a 4th rounder as well out of it though.

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

I checked their website and they didn't mention anything yet. I actually like the sound of this guy if we don't pay to much. Here's an article regarding his visit with Buffalo today.

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

I LOVE this move of Bryant Johnson. This kid does something every time he gets a shot. He knows the west coast offense, and hes big enough and strong enough to go over the middle. He also won't break the bank. Perfect signing!

They are the two I was thinking of that I would give the pick for. I prefer Williams because he's younger and his personality may blend in better.

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

JLC makes no mention of Bryant Johnson

Nothing Doing At Redskins Park
Vinny Cerrato and Karl Swanson are interviewing candidates for the vacant director of PR position, with more interviews scheduled for tomorrow..

Skins have no free agent visits planned (they told free agent safety Will Demps he could come in for a visit during talks with his agent over the wekeend, sources said, but we'll see when or if that happens)>

That's it. Pretty quiet. Quite weird, but as a worn-out beat schlub I ain't compaining. I could get used to this

What do you mean he does something everytime he gets a shot? He started 8 games last year and had 26 catches for 291 yards and 2 TDs. So what exactly does he do?

(As a comparison David Patten started 7 games in 2006 and had 22 catches for 217 yards and 0 TDs.)

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

Maybe a little off topic but why does JLC always need to make mention how hard he's working? There are a lot harder jobs in this world then covering a football team. I am sure he has bad days at the office just like the rest of us but we really don't need to hear him whining every day online.

LOL I'm scratching my head over that one too.

He's never even had a 100 yard game if you can believe it.

He never had a 100 yard game? That has me 2nd guessing if we should even be bringing him in.

You should start writing your posts that way

"Well I just put little Celt Jr. to sleep, took a while because he's hopped up on fruit punch Capri Sun. Might want to keep an eye on Bryant Johnson. Ok, that's all I got. I'm beat! Need a break. I'm gonna take a nap now."

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

Check out his stats, very underwhelming. I just quickly scanned through all of his game logs and I didn't see a 100 yard game in there.

Here are his best games by season:

2007: 6-80
2006: 6-82
2005: 6-66-1
2004: 7-54
2003: 6-86
