Wink Re: Joey Galloway signed

He was obviously signed so McNabb would have someone his own age to pal around with.

Re: Joey Galloway signed

According to sources, the Skins are on the verge of signing Ricky Nattiel, Mark Jackson, and Vance Johnson (possibly because of their ties to Denver). Veterans Wes Chandler and Louis Lipps are also considering offers.

The TB & B. Allen connection once again. Galloway has really been on the move. Hard to say just what role he'll play, but his signing does not come as a surprise.

Joey is a class guy that was raised by great parents. He does everything for his high school & the younger kids in his home town of Bellaire Ohio. He still has speed & unlike some of you I root for the good guys in this league.I am partial in this because I know him & his family.

Re: Joey Galloway signed

Garcia made him a stud in 2007. He keeps himself in great shape. This is a great signing.

Re: Joey Galloway signed

Bottom line: this is a low risk/high reward move, if he makes the team awesome, if not no loss on our end. I doubt he makes it (the Pats cut him last yr) but I like the competition and he "could' take the 5 WR spot.

Re: Joey Galloway signed

What about Billy "white shoes" Johnson? Was he not available? I say Charlie Taylor last winter he looked like he still had a few catches left in him.

Re: Joey Galloway signed

Wow, yet ANOTHER 30-something player signed past his prime. How many does that make this off-season?

Kemoeatu
McNabb
LJ
Parker
Ryan
Galloway

Remind me again what has changed since Allen became GM?

Well other than McNabb, the rest are role players, not signed to splashy contracts, but performance based and easily cuttable. The FO isn't on a free for all spendfest, but bringing in young UDFA's and veteran talent in order to find the right mix is not the same as our past FO's plan.

While I concur that the contracts are indeed more easy to swallow than in years past. My concern is as I look around the rest of the NFC East, the other 3 teams are getting younger, whereas the Redskins are getting older.

I'm sure the lack of draft picks in recent years plays a part in that. So when you look at the shear number of over-30 vets signed this year, some of not most will be seeing significant playing time.

I am sure that Skins and Skins fans truly appreciate your concern.

Obviously a lack of draft picks played a part in it. The "shear number of it" doesn't follow, since currently we have at least 80 people under contract, of which 53 will be on the final roster and only 45 on any gameday (I know you know that), so just under half the bodies in camp won't make it, and it's easier to bring in older players like Galloway for a serviceable camp body because you don't have to really spend time teaching him the basics, like you would an undrafted FA. Camp bodies have to come from somewhere, and if some do make the final cut (as I am sure they will) I doubt it will suddenly overwhelm what youth we do have.
