Redskins Deny Bryant Johnson Visit Scheduled

"Johnson is definitely interested in the Bills as a potential employer. Advantages for the Bills, they have a #2 WR role open for the taking. Receivers coach Tyke Tolbert was his receivers coach in Arizona his rookie year so there's some familiarity there.

The only negative is Johnson does have another visit scheduled and it's with the Redskins."

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

After looking at some freaking stats, what does Johnson have over Reche Caldwell besides 2 inches (insert joke here)?

Oh man, that'd be sweet to get him. He's young and tall.

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

As said above though, Caldwell is only two inches shorter and also young.

So is Kwame Brown.

Sorry, I know what you meant but I couldn't resist.. I'd like to have either Johnson or Hackett in maroon and black by the end of the week.

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

Nothing to back it up but I've thought this would be a good move for a while now. He seems like more of a physical presence than Caldwell. We need a red zone receiving threat to take the pressure off of Cooley.

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

Interesting but has anything been confirmed by the Redskins?

This guy really doesn't excite me much, but as long as the price is right I'd be ok with it.

Yeah, I mean just today I decided there's no one on the free agent market that excites me as far as wide receivers go. THIS is if we're just looking for tall wide receivers. I thought that was the original goal right?

Hackett is 6'2". Johnson is 6'2" as well (could be wrong according to a post above). I'm definitely wait and see on Mix, but right now I REALLY want to draft one after our first round pick. Cheap and could work out just as easily as Hackett or Johnson.

LOL! We don't need this guy. He's a first round bust. Penn State WR's rarely turn out to be good pro's. Someone is going to overpay for him and I hope it's not us. I'd rather have Hackett.

"Insert Joke Here"...that's what she said! Zing!!

Seriously though, if we want a number 2 to complement Santana Moss then I think Reche Caldwell is just fine.

But if we're looking for a #1 WR then we probably need to push a trade for Johnson or Roy Williams.

My question is why? They've had similar stats and Caldwell has been healthier than Hackett. I'm not saying either should be a number one, must like SS is saying. But I'm thinking let's not waste money on people like Hackett or Johnson in free agency and let's talk about the draft.

I guess two inches shorter WOULD be a joke!

In my mind Johnson has a little more upside. He is stuck behind 2 pro bowlers in Arizona. I wouldn't mind Johnson, but I would still rather try and get a trade for a true #1 WR.

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

I'm sorry folks, but I can't understand how anyone thinks that Reche Caldwell is a legit number 2. I think we often get blinded by our own players. I don't know anyone who has ever heard of Mike Espy if he isn't a member of this board. I'm excited to see what Mix can do too, but I don't think that we should stand pat at wide out. Caldwell is mediocre at best, Mix and Espy (last year's darling) have shown absolutely nothing.

I'm not advocating by Bryant Johnson, but the Skins need another receiver. There is no one on the roster who I would consider to be a legit number 1, Moss can't stay healthy and Randle El is at best a number 2, Caldwell has never had more than 760 receiving yards. His second highest total? 352! I don't know what about his 141 yards and no touchdowns suggests he should be number 2 ahead of Randle El, but I have no faith in a Moss (who might play his average 11 games), Caldwell, Randle El, and (insert former practice squad player here) receiving corps. This team needs another wide out. I'm not sure that I care where to get him, but they gotta get one.

I, personally, would pursue Javon Walker if he's healthy and not too pricey. If he has an incentive laden contract, I would be all about because, when he's healthy and motivated, he's a great football player.

Re: Bryant Johnson Scheduled to Visit Redskins

I thought Hackett was somewhat injury prone?

If that's the case then how would he compliment the personnel we have now? We've already got two wideouts that borderline commit suicide every time they go over the middle. I'd rather have a sure handed, physical number two that can free up ARE and SM to do what they do best, make the big play.
