I appreciate what he has done in the past but it is pretty sad if we can't find a better guy than an injured James Thrash.

Really good guy, solid locker room presence and has been a solid teamer, TRUE REDSKIN, a #3 WR hes not.

But it will be retire or get cut for Thrash. Enough, enjoy the rest of your life while you can still walk. Maybe, a ST or WR coaching career down the road.

re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

I thank him for his years with the team, but really he needs to look out for his health first. I dont think he is going to make the team this year anyway, at least I sure hope not. And if he does make the team, how much will he really play and contribute? Lets go with Roydell or a young guy and keep it movin....

I hope he retires. I think he will. He's a smart man, I'm sure he knows he'll almost certainly be cut if he doesn't hang up the cleats.

It's kind of a bummer to think Jansen and Thrash won't be in the locker room anymore.

Yeah he is so intelligent and I can either see him as a coach or working to make the NFL better somewhere in a corporate office with the league. He has been an asset to our locker room and, at times, on our field.

Great guy, but overall there is good news out of this. Hopefully some of the younger guys will get more of a chance.

re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

I think Thrash has been a great example for all the younger guys over the years and has been a ST's beast. I appreciate everything he has done for the Redskins, but I would like to see him retire and go out with the dignity he deserves.

re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

I love him....he keeps his mouth shut and plays hard.....but 1 or 2 TD's a yr aint going to cut it. We need more from our WR's that are active.

Sadly, many young (and veteran) wideouts don't follow this philosophy.

Another thing about Thrash, via Cooley's blog, is he apparently studies and takes notes like no other. He is the true professional as he is 100 percent focused on improving all the time. I am not surprised that Zorn will allow Thrash to take his time; teams have got to love guys like this even if their output may not be as great.

Great character guy, and brings great veteran leadership. I hope he decides to stay around another year.

re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

James Thrash has stretched his career incredibly far & still plays like a rookie looking to make the squad. Along w/Jansen, he's been one of the few solid long-term vets that we've been blessed to have on the team for so long.

If they cut Jansen, Thrash knows that he could be next. At 34 it would be ideal for him to step away & it would be nice to see a vet retire w/the team for a change, rather than go on & play in spot duty somewhere else.

Then again, this dude has made the team beyond crazy odds before. Maybe he'll try once more...

re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

I agree with the sentiment everyone seems to be sharing that its time for him to go. His health aside (which is the most important thing for him), its better for the team if he goes, as his vacancy would create a spot for a young guy who we can groom. At this point, it doesnt make sense for us to waste a roster spot on an old, declining #5 WR, who doesnt contribute much to the offense or ST, and at best will only be around another year or two. Right now, he may be a better olayer than a guy like Marko Mitchell, but guys like Mitchell are more "deserving" of the roster spot.

A classy guy all the way. Has has always been one of my favorite players. There are many players who could learn from James Thrash and how to handle themselves like professionals.
