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.

Maybe he gives us something, maybe he's cut before the season.

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.

Sandtrap, what would you do in this situation: You are a new coach who needs to overhaul the roster. However, it is the beginning of an uncapped year so there are fewer young free agents on the market. You also do not have your full number of draft picks.

What you would do is bring in many older players who might fit your system. If some of them stick, then you've found contributors. If they are too ancient to be capable, you would cut them.

The fact is that if you look closely you will see that Shanahan is trying to get younger but lacks significant resources for doing so.

Sandtrap is our token Cowboys fan. There are a couple others, but he visits regularly.

We will have several unique formations this year in addition to the 10 WR offense, we will have a 5 RB set and then the infamous 4 TE formation. There will be a lot of creativity this season.

I like it. Keep 'em guessing.
