Raleighredskinfan info for you....

Pierce is not our for sure. You see he is a RFA and can leave if another team gives him a offer and the Redskins don't match it!

Exactly why we are looking at Short and Favors. IF we can sign them and Pierce is offered good money elsewhere, Skins will likely not match the sheet (why would you for a backup LB?).

would the signing of pierce by another team give us a draft pick? if so I'm guessing it'd be in the 5-7 range but hey that's better than nothing if we can get one of the players discussed to sign for what we'd sign Pierce too plus get a pick for Pierce signing with another team.

Cool

Trotter will be here this year, then re-negotiate or leave.

We are too thin on the D-line to cut Brandon Noble until summer training camp at the earliest.

Why cut Noble? Hasn't really had a chance to show his abilities in burgundy & gold yet.

quite simply, depth

A little too much depth, if you ask me!

We obviously aren't going to carry Arrington, Trotter, Washington, Pierce, Mitchell, Short and Favors along with a slew of practice players. We aren't looking at Short and Favors for "depth". Somebodies getting cut or let go- as someone else pointed out earlier, maybe it's Pierce or Mitchell, but we aren't looking at both Short and Favors if we were going to keep the current crew. Now that I hear Trotter's cap number for this year is decent but balloons next year, maybe we keep him one more year, but unless he improves drastically this year, I bet he's gone. Plus, I hope we keep Pierce. He has looked good to me. Mitchell is getting old though...

I thought they just resigned Mitchell. Peirce is an RFA, so we can match if we want to. Why resign and restrict if you don't want em?

Lots of LBs, not a lot of linemen. Hmmm... sounds kinda 3-4ish.

They did just resign Mitchell, so if someone is to go it will likely be Pierce.

They will probably let them all compete at mini-camp and release/cut whoever ends up at the bottom of the list.

Hmmm...ESPN is reporting that the Giants cut Barrow, their middle linebacker. Any scouting stats on him? Might he be a possibility for the 'skins?

Who says we're going to sign both Favors and Short? Seems to be they are both being looked at but I don't think they'll both be brought in.

We aren't looking at Favors or Short as "starters" that's for sure.

Before you judge Trotter, remember...a bad Dline makes backers look terrible.
