I think in the case of Sproles, he's been demanding big money and the Chargers (namely AJ Smith) are trying to prove to him that he's not worth that much

That makes sense. I also saw an interesting take on SD not tendering Sproles, that had to do with the Colts. If they tender him, than any team can match and sign, BUT if he is untendered than the final 8 teams can't sign him unless they lose an equivalent. Thus Indy couldn't sign Sproles, unless they lost either Brackett or their other UFA at about the equivalent contract.

It's what I would do in the same situation, but do you think there's a chance that Sproles takes a very similar offer from a different team out of spite?

I really think we should cut Rock and Randel El and just go ahead and sign sproles because thats one player that can do 2 of there jobs (punt returns[el] and kick returns [rock]) as well as 3rd down running back.

What I read was more from the SD side that they were worried about it, not so much anything saying Indy would.

How is Rotoworld in terms of reporting on rumors? They have us linked ot Darren Sproles.

good for you. i was just saying that to a buddy of mine. Morton was a beast returner/back out of the backfield which is what L.wash is. Nah to a L.Wash Signing. keep the pick and sign someone younger and healthier.

Re: Would Dunta Robinson & Darren Sproles be 'business as usual'?

id like Sproles.. and i still want a rookie to contend as well.

But Portis, Sproles, and a Rookie of his choice would give Shanahan alot to work with.

Re: Would Dunta Robinson & Darren Sproles be 'business as usual'?

it seems this is going to be 2000 all over. Interest in Sproles, Robinson, Peppers, Dansby, Clifton...I mean seriously. Its just ridiculous. I dont know where the talk is coming from, but George Allen never worked this way in previous destinations. He built some solid teams in Oakland and Tampa with the draft by adding a FEW veteran FA. This just had Danny's little paw prints all over it.

Until it happens it has Mike Florio's paw prints all over it. It's a common practice in the agent & NFL media circles to associate the Redskins with big name high priced players.

Regardless, Sproles, Robinson & Dansby is far from a repeat of 2000 where we signed players at the end of their careers.

It's certainly not coming directly from the team, that's all I know. I wouldn't get too excited over fan driven rumors and speculation.

So is it your contention that no big name FA's should be considered, or else DS has his hands in it? That a good FO would purposely ignore the highest rated FA's because 10 year ago a young hyper owner made bad decisions? That in an uncapped year, where many needs can be filled without forcing other areas to be left untouched, a responsible FO with a large checkbook should withdraw its name from contention for players who are definite, or at least probable, upgrades to the overall team.

Signing one, two or even many of these names would not mean that the OL was not being addressed as it has in the salary cap era. Indeed, you can make a case that by filling these needs with upgraded FA talent, you open the draft to filling more of the most needed areas (OL/QB) with top young talent.

Of course we may not sign anyone, wouldn't that be a hoot.

What does George Allen have to do with the current team?
