I just meant long shot in being able to make the Redskin active squad and being a contributing player in 2008-2009 season.
I think the FO will end up putting him on injured reserve and let him rehab his knee all the way before letting him in a regular season game and re-injuring himself. The Vikings brought him back too soon that is why he injured himself.
Regarding the knee, I realize the advancements in knee repair has come a long way, but he has played very little in two years. We can not expect him to rehab his knee and be the same level of player he was coming out of Wisconsin. He has missed a lot playing time and experience. Plus the knee never comes back to what it was before a re-constructive surgery, much less two.
I hope this guys becomes the next great DE.

Re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

Or he may end up on PUP list for 8 regular season games, which during that time would free up a roster spot during recovery.
You only get one of these slots though....so Carlos Rodgers better heal up fast!

The one thing we got going for him on the durability front is that here in Washington he'll be part of a rotation. So instead of having to take 60 or so snaps per game, he might be limited to just 20, max. However as far as the pickup being crucial, I wouldn't say that, it's of a relitively good size piece of the puzzle, but by no means a big piece.

Re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

Santana Moss's Charity Bashes/Waiting For Erasmus

Erasmus James, the Skins new DE acquisition, has yet to take his physical. Would be shocked if he doesn't pass it, even though he failed Minnesota's with his left ACL problems, and will update you on that info when I get it. Also, I screwed something up yesterday and, like a moron, forgot what year it was (seriously) when looking at Erasmus James's contract. Indeed he does have a $1 million salary left on his contract ... but that's in 2009. In 2008 he will earn $695,000 if he makes the Redskins. So he has two seasons left on his deal.

Re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

Not a fan of this move at all...but I will think positive and HOPE that he turns out to be a steal.

Re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

Guy's we only gave up a 7th round pick for the guy I think it's worth the gamble...And having his old college line coach John Palermo only makes me feel confident he will contribute..Who knows him better?

Just tired of giving up draft picks for anyone. Most of us were fine with giving up picks for Lloyd and Duckett until the draft showed up and we were light on picks. Not that a 7th round is that valuable, but a guy with his history should not warrant a pick.
Like I said, I am going to be positive about this and HOPE he plays to his potential.

Re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

A 7th round pick for an unknown is the same whether it's in the draft or on a former number one pick with injury trouble. The talent was there prior to the draft, so maybe if he can get healthy, we just got a steal?

Re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

for a 7th round pick its a no brainer man. if he is healthy, he makes the team and cost us a 7th? if not we cut him and keep our 7th? no big deal. i do like his chances if he is healthy, alot better than the DE we just drafted in the 7th round! the only bad part of this deal is almost puts an end to my jason taylor to the skins hopes!

Re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

James update, physical now scheduled for tomorrow.

Redskins Insider

Erasmus James Update

The Skins new DE reported to Redskins Park today but did not take his physical. It's now scheduled for Thursday.

The Redskins are not concerned about his ability to pass the medical tests and are viewing the deal with the Vikings as a completed trade even though James failed his physical with Minnesota. They aren't worried about it, and these physicals are often highly subjective as well with the standards varying by team. If you really want a guy to pass a physical and he has all his limbs then it can pretty much happen. (I know of several teams in recent years that failed current Redskins Rocky McIntosh, Stephon Heyer and Malcom Kelly coming out of college, for instance).

As I noted yesterday, you can't knock this move. James has some upside and yes the ACL is a concern both short and long-term. But for a 7th round pick, why not take a shot? Especially with such an overt need at his position.

Re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

It's a 7th rounder. who cares. We gave the pick to ensure we got him, there were 20 teams ahead of us that could of picked him up off the waiver wire. We must not need picks if we are drafting punters in the 6th round. Does anyone know how many punters were taken this year? Only 1. We could of signed an undrafted Punter. So a seventh rounder for a 1st round player is not that big deal, even with his injury history.

I'll maintain my wait and see approach on EJ. But at this point there is nothing lost and nothing gained, yet.

We must not need picks if we are drafting a punter in the 6th round of the draft for Durant Brooks at selection #168?

Why so?

Since he was the only punter picked in this years draft, and we need competition for frost. I'm sure glad we picked what should certainly become the future punter of the Redskins (Maybe this year) and happened to be the #1 punter in the draft.

Re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

It seems as if people are very high on James. I know he was a 1st round pick, but what makes people think he actually will be something special? (a genuine question)
