Maybe Portis will be traded? That's a loaded backfield.

Willie Parker, Larry Johnson and Clinton Portis now will have an open competition for the Redskins starting RB job - best back wins.

Let the competition begin! No one is just going to show up and be handed the job. Shanahan really does like competition. I like it.

re: Willie Parker a Skin

I like it, I think I kind of jokingly said a while back we should sign Parker too after signing LJ.

This gives us a pretty good 3 headed monster at RB. Shanahan loves to have a stable of backs.

Re: Willie Parker a Skin

Woah. One minute Parker's about to sign on the dotted line, next minute he's gone, and now he's here?

Didn't see that coming

I think with him and Buch though we're getting two high quality individuals...if nothing else

Re: Willie Parker a Skin

I'll be interested to see what we do about RB in the draft...and who survives training camp.

Mid to low round pick in the draft, this helps address LB needs.

Re: Willie Parker a Skin

2 things I like about it:
1) competition at the position will benefit the whole team, sends a big message to CP in case he hasn't gotten it already w/LJ
2) is a short term fix & allows the team greater flexibility in the draft to address other positions. They can nab a young rb.

What I don't like:
1) 3 old rbs, was hoping we could get a rook to make the team, play spec. teams & be the 3rd back. At least, like I mention above, it's a position that is less of a need for the draft now.
2) are either LJ or WP an upgrade over Betts if he can recover?

Re: Willie Parker a Skin

A move like this helps keep our options open in the draft.

Portis, LJ, Parker certainly looks a lot better than Portis, Betts, Cartwright

Maybe this is the big announcement SS was predicting a few days ago...or not. LOL. Anyway, wow, talk about this coming out of nowhere.

Re: Willie Parker a Skin

I'd feel better if Portis wasn't the youngest/best of the bunch.

I guess Parker is younger, technically, but I don't like this one as much as the LJ signing.

It's not.

Once Parker left without a contract last time and we signed LJ, I thought that was it for Parker
