As the new GM would you go after Ronnie Brown?

Supposing you are the new Redskins GM would you go after Ronnie Brown after the season? He's currently in his contract season that officially ended yesterday. It would be foolish for the Dolphins to part with such an amazing player, but the Redskins could pay more. Would you? Should we?

I'm not sure he's worth what we'd have to pay to get him. And can anyone say torn acl?

Brown is a very good back who can do many things but i wouldnt want to pay what it would take to get him.

With a better offensive line, cheaper running backs can thrive. Unless you're talking about Adrian Peterson, you wait until the third round or later to start drafting backs. And you absolutely don't break the bank on a high priced free agent running back.

Re: As the new GM would you go after Ronnie Brown?

He's had some pretty serious injuries and he was just put on IR. Besides that I'd rather look to the draft and not spend big money on a RB, again.

Re: As the new GM would you go after Ronnie Brown?

Uh, is there something wrong with Betts and Rock?

I had to say that. Especially since some think they are the best.

Is there something wrong with Ganther? Obviously we have not seen enough of him to call him Portis's replacement but I was excited to hear he actually blocked well, and ran well. Heard he trucked 2 people? Can we not see if he is the Portis type of back we have needed to replace him and maybe pick up a bruising back to compliment or look for a scat back if Ganther can keep trucking people?

Re: As the new GM would you go after Ronnie Brown?

I actually wouldn't have a problem at all if we went with Betts as the #1 and Rock as the #2 next year. Neither are long term options though and we need to start thinking about that.

Re: As the new GM would you go after Ronnie Brown?

We probably can't get him. He falls into the same category as Campbell and Rogers, draftees with 4-5 years of NFL experience. Even though their contracts will be up, the expiring CBA and uncapped season limits their ability to become unrestricted free agents.

Any player with less than 6 years experience remains the exclusive rights of the team that drafted him. So the Dolphins will be the only team who can negotiate with him. He can only leave if the Dolphins decide they don't want him.

Same for the Redskins with Campbell and Rogers. They can't go negotiating with other teams unless we let them.

I'm eating a lot of crow here, I like what Betts and Rock have done in the last 2 or 3 games when they have been relied upon to move the ball. I especially like them on the field together. If we went rebuild mode I wouldn't have a problem keeping them until we found a viable replacement. Maybe it's Ganther maybe it's not but it would give the team time to aquire someone. In the past I have not liked either Betts or Rock but the good news is they don't have the wear and tear that Portis has and I don't see the need to bring in someone elses broken down backs who have a lot of miles on them.
