I hope Thrash does stay here in some form. As said often in this thread, he brought a good thing to this team for a long time.

This team certainly doesn't seem to be holding on to anyone just for the sake of holding on. I hope that opens the competition level across the board.

Thanks James for being the type of player I enjoy pulling for. Would love to see James stick around as a coach for the young wide outs.

Re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

On the field impact, it should be a really interesting training camp battle for the #5 spot between Mitchell and R. Williams.

Off the field, Thrash is the ultimate professional and a class act. I hope Snyder is smart enough to give him a role in the organization (when he retires) to keep him in the fold.

I would like to see either ARE be put in the slot or released myself. I just think that we are paying him too much for the amount of production that he has had.

You mean his career high in receptions and touchdowns last year? Yeah, he's garbage, off with his head!

He is making more money than JC for crying out loud. His career season high numbers weren't that impressive to begin with. He is a slot reciever at best.

Re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

Does anyone know the level of input that Zorn has had in this transaction and in Jensen's release? I'm just curious to know how much of a say he's had, especially since his name has come up when both of these players were released (i.e. Zorn talked to Jensen and Thrash, etc., etc.). I'm wondering if Zorn in his second year is getting more of a saying in player transactions.

Re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

In Hixon's interview he seemed to indicate that Roydell Williams had the inside track to be the #5 guy. But I don't see that happening personally. The number 5 guy has to be a special teams baller, and that's not really Williams' forte.

Re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

ppl use career highs and the term improvement. but you have to look at the numbers and see what he has done for the team.

Who's getting paid more than who isn't ARE's fault. That said, even Zorn has said that he would be best suited in the slot. The hope/expectation is that either Thomas or Kelly is the #2 guy by the start of the season.

His level of input has always been high

Hopefully ARE can be a slot receiver due to the emergence of Kelly and/or Thomas. I personally don't really care to see him in B&G anymore either, but we pulled our typical restructure move with him, so now he'd cost a fortune to cut, and we'd have to restructure someone else. I'm tired of that viscious circle.
