Not quite... the old Danny would have signed Hall to a mega deal. This move is relatively low risk, potentially high reward. I'm not a big fan of Hall either but I'm willing to see if he can prove me wrong.

Re: Redskins Release Torrence

I'd rather they cut Springs instead of Torrence. Torrence might not be very good in coverage, but at least he plays more than 2 games a year.

How about we wait and see how this plays out on the field?
same thing I was thinking....

Doesn't it make sense to anyone else that they release the old guy that is going to be replaced by the new guy who is replacing him?

Also, Tryon is a first year corner who may have potential. Remember that this is the first year Rogers has looked good, even though he was a first round pick a couple of years ago. I'm sure that if Jerry Grey thought Torrence was that important he would have made sure they released someone else. Just try to keep "4th corner" in perspective guys.

We should totally cut Portis and pick up Travis Henry while we're at it. :frusty:

I think it was an ironic statement.

I thought that Rogers looked good last year too, not great, but very good.

Re: Redskins Release Torrence

Good for Torrence. He lands work, I think with a little help from Jerry Gray.

Torrence Finds Spot in New Orleans

From Jason La Canfora:

Recently released cornerback Leigh Torrence was claimed off waivers by the Saints and Vikings, according to sources. He was awarded to New Orleans based on fact that they have a worse record.

Among the teams that expressed interest in having him visit had he become a free agent were the Patriots, Bears, Eagles and Ravens.

Re: Redskins Release Torrence

Hey while were at it......does anyone know why Brunell was throwing with his right hand in his last game? Probably not the place but wasn't he a lefty with us and some of the excuses were that the ball spins the wrong way for the WR's? I kept watching the game just to make sure I was seeing it right.

Just curious if you are actually serious or if this was a poor attempt at a joke??

I honestly thought that if Hall stuck they would cut Springs next year. I kind of agree. Torrence was a real talent that would have made a great fourth corner next year. We would be able to go into next years draft with out even thinking corner. If it were up to me I would have released Fincher. Cerrato said they might only keep five LBs prior to the season and load up the practice squad. That is what I would have done. I love the Hall adition, but letting a corner like Torrence go was careless.

Re: Redskins Release Torrence

You got me thinking Killa. (About time right?) If Hall does'nt make it, who replaces him and Torrence next year? Tryon? That may be the case. More than likely Fincher would have been safe on the practice squad and we could have opened up a space there by releasing Westbrook who is'nt as valuable as Torrence. I could be wrong but I don't see Westbrook having much of a future here.

They're not. That would have been Brunell's base salary here in 2008 had he not been released.
