re: Mega-Merge: 2010 Free Agency Rumors and Reports Thread

I'd take Sproles as long as the team traded or cut Cartwright. I'd rather have a KR that actually does more then just KR meaning KR/PR and possibly being 3rd down back vs. taking a roster spot to just KR. I don't care how much of a locker guys he is.

I'd like for us to get rid of Portis's big contract and has anyone heard anything about whether the doctor will clear him to play in the future? Does he still get the head aches?

If you would have asked me a few weeks ago I'd have figured Portis would be gone due to contract, Betts and Cartwright gone due to age, leaving us with Ganther, Mason, and Alridge, then a draft pick and possibly someone like Sproles who could be a KR/PR and
3rd down back. But since Shanahan has said Portis will be back then Betts and Rock are expendable for someone healthier and younger to take over next year when they know the offensive plays better.

Filed to ESPN: Thomas Jones will not be restructuring his contract with Jets + will be released this week. He'll be a free agent March 5th.

Is 2 or 3 = 1.5? I don't know what he is worth so I threw some numbers out there. He is viewed as a part time back and we are already paying a runningback 10 million so how much should we really commit to the postion.

If Sproles is looking for Reggie Bush $? If so, pass.

I think his asking price is in the 7mill mark, saw that somewhere. But this season what difference does it make? if they sign him to a long term high salary maybe i would be less happy, but Sproles is a playmaker in his prime years and i would take him regardless of this year's salary/signing bonus.

It still makes a difference in the way that salary, more than anything else, seems to dictate usage patterns. If you sign a guy at 7 million to play RB, then he's pretty much playing three downs.

Maybe that's not a bad thing, but Sproles is one of the rare guys in the league who has never run behind zone blocking at any level. Not at K-State, and not with the Chargers. Marty and Norv, independantly, are two of the only offensive minded coaches who have really not embraced zone blocking concepts in any capacity, at least to this point.

Zorn's scheme was primarily zone blocking, but there were some man elements in the week to week gameplan (likely due to Bugel).

Rolle will be a free agent he and Landry would make a nice tandem.

Unless we are going to offer Rolle a boatload of money, it sounds like Rolle is going to be back with Cardinals with different structure contract..

re: Mega-Merge: 2010 Free Agency Rumors and Reports Thread

Rolle becomes one of the better players in the free agent market upon his release, but it's critical that people don't think of him as a pro bowler. He doesn't consistently perform at a pro bowl level at safety, and especially not at corner. With that said, league average performance has a lot of value, and Rolle could be a valuable pickup.

The problem is that I don't think a Rolle-Landry tandem fixes anything. Landry needs to develop into a very good free safety (or just 'safety' who doesn't line up in the box 80% of the time), or he needs to hit the road. Strong safety can be an intermediate step to that getting cut part, but putting Landry at strong safety is the opposite of a career saver. Develop or get the crap out.

re: Mega-Merge: 2010 Free Agency Rumors and Reports Thread

By all means, if the internal evaluation comes back that Landry's problems can't be fixed, we should sign a free safety in free agency. But then the goal, obviously, is to replace Landry. And that should be clear.

I guess I wouldn't mind it since we don't know what Portis will be able to do since his concusion. Then there's the fact that we have a guy on the team who is, I'm guessing, making 400K to 500K to pretty much play 4-7 plays the whole game. ... Cartwright.

WTF? I know we can't fix everything in one year but can we get rid of the old dead wood and make an attempt to get younger across the board? Daniels is 37y/o. OMG. Wasn't he cut last year and brought back for a one year deal?

You said if he wanted that much you'd pass, so I gave you a lower number.

re: Mega-Merge: 2010 Free Agency Rumors and Reports Thread

Has anyone heard much about us looking to pick up Peppers? I know that our name gets thrown into most the the FA rumors because we are always looking to "make a splash," but it is briefly metioned in the Haynesworth post below.

Redskins Insider - Haynesworth is the key in Redskins' use of 3-4 defense
