Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

I don't know anything about this guy, other than what I read and he didn't play last year. But it appears depth at the safety position is something we are actively pursuing. And I do agree with the search we need to find solid depth at the safety position.

Redskins Sign DB Hamilton

It is in the article who was released.

To make room for Hamilton on the roster, the Redskins released defensive back Stephen Tate, an undrafted rookie.

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

"Hamilton is expected to be on hand as the Redskins resume OTAs on June 2."
I thought the last line in this article was amusing. I'm glad he was just signed and expected to show up in 3 days. I don't know anything about him but why was he out last year? Injuries or just the fact that the Browns secondary was crappy in 05? Anyone? Happy for the depth and bring on OTAs and Training Camp then Canton. Im ready.

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

I dont understand why they signed this guy, when Doss and Schweigert are out there. Vinny Cerrato already said that we are not interested in Doss. His reasoning was that we have two draft choices that are safties and we wont be able to take all the safties on the roster to camp.

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

Hamilton is big 6-3 and 222 pounds. Looks like they are trying to add someone with size. Doss is small for a safety. Doughty is good but kind of skinny. I do not think this guy will beat out Reed Doughty for a starting position, but he is a change of pace.

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

I'm going to say that this guy won't make the roster, but there's no harm in bringing in a guy to push Chris Horton a little to earn his roster spot.

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

here's the link to his full stats:
NCAA DIVISION I FOOTBALL


1 year as a nothing, 1 year as a part time WR, 1 year as a part time RB, 1 year as a part time DB... nothing impressive besides his size i guess. doesn't really seem like a guy worth writing a press release about.

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

What a freakin joke. Another great pickup by the current front office/talent evaluators. This is pathetic. Players continue to be selected the way, which is by an incompetent committee who considers draft picks to be irrelevant. Doesn't seem like anything is gonna change in the FO.

Okay, sarcasm font off.

For the record, the above comments were made about the signing of Chris Wilson:

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

He's a warm body, but don't see him making final roster. Only way he makes the team is if he excels on special teams in preseason.

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

Interesting pickup. He was really highly regarded as a RB when he first came to VT. If I had to say one thing about him is that he had good overall football skills. The coaches moved him to WR to get him playing time due to a crowded RB backfield. He moved to safety the next year due to inexperience at that position. Basically, he's a good enough athlete to play where the team needs him most. He may not have put up the amazing eyepopping stats that most people covet but he did play solid and selflessly when called upon. A good team-first guy to have...if he can play at the pro level which I have no idea.

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

its gotten to a point that if the redskins listened to people around here, they would only sign washed up 30 something year olds. of course, at the vet minimum

Re: Redskins sign second year safety Justin Hamilton

I love this signing!

If you do a search you'll find that a few of us discussed him as a potential late round pick a couple years ago.

724 summed up most of his college career, this guy is a great athlete & team player. Very smart & well spoken as well. The coaches at VT were always looking for a spot where he could get playing time. They probably made a mistake by trying to play him as a rb right out of high school as he was tall & ran too straight up, but was no Eddie George. He was a decent wr, but when they moved him to safety he cracked the starting lineup as a senior.

That might not sound too impressive to the avg. fan, but think about it. How many players can play only 1 year at a position in college & still get an nfl job as a rookie at that position? I know he didn't play last year, don't know why. Probably wasn't picked up by anybody.

I think his range in coverage is going to be his problem, unless he's improved greatly. He's no lock to make the team by any means, but one thing is for sure, he can play special teams. The same has been said about K. Moore too. Actually the two of these guys have a lot in common it sounds like, only Hamilton is bigger.

He'll be hungry, so there will be good competition at safety in camp.
