Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

I really think the reason they picked him up is because he has NFL experience...outside of our starting safetys....who only have 1 year experience....we've got no experience with our safety depth.

This guy played several games and knows the speed of the NFL...rookies dont know that yet, and they are lower draft picks to boot. We really should have an experienced backup safety on the final roster....I think maybe this is what they are trying to do...but this guy is a stretch at that attempt.

He was released late preseason last year....he had an ankle injury.
He was likely average at best.

I wouldn't be suprised if they continue to keep their eyes open for an aging vet to get cut late in preseason for safety....and of course, LB, CB, Dline too.

Very true dmek. I'm glad you didn't leave out the 'vet minimum' as thats very important.

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

honestly, i do remember mentioning him (i think) in his draft season. there's a good chance he can plays teams for us, but i don't think he'll be playing too much on normal downs...

Out of our 2008 Undrafted free agent class of 13 players. We picked up two linebackers, both with good size.

Curtis Gatewood OLB, 6'3" 248lbs, Vanderbilt
Bryan Wilson LB, 6'3" 250lbs, Morgan State

Listen carefully SmootSmack...

Tear yourself away from the computer, too much searching for arcane bits of knowledge and scraps of informations leads to impotency (or is it celibacy?).

If you know how to do it right, it takes 45 seconds tops...I'm talking about searching

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

Stuart Schweigert

SS is a great value pickup. he's a suitable, but not great, starter. more of a tackler than a coverage guy, but he's better than doughty right now... same sort of player though (and at 26, he can give us at least 3 good years).

the fact that landry can cover the entire deep field solo means that working with a limited coverage safety really isn't a big deal at all.

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

Skins sign rookie safety Chris Horton. Release Justin Hamilton, that was short lived.

Redskins Sign Seventh-Round Pick Horton
By Gary Fitzgerald
Redskins.com
June 12, 2008

The Redskins have signed rookie safety Chris Horton, the team announced on Thursday. Horton was the Redskins' seventh-round draft pick in last April's NFL Draft.

To make room for Horton on the roster, the Redskins released safety Justin Hamilton.

Horton, who played college football at UCLA under former Redskins defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker, was the 249th overall selection in the draft.

The 6-1, 216-pounder started every game the past two seasons at UCLA. He finished his college career with 238 tackles (160 solo), three sacks, four interceptions and three forced fumbles.

As a senior last year, Horton finished second on UCLA's defense with 90 tackles (64 solo). In 2006, he led the defense with 95 tackles (64 solo).

Horton grew up in New Orleans.
