I think it will come down to what kind of offers he gets. We haven't been breaking the bank on anybody.

Re: Free Safety

IMO the only FS we have is Moore and he's not a starter on most teams. Good news is it's May so he's the starter... for now. I thought we should've grabbed a FS in a deep draft class, but assuming we get Atogwe none of this matters. If we don't then we need to be mildly concerned.

Solid SS's, or basically guys who can be effective playing closer to the LOS, are definitely more plentiful.

Re: Free Safety

Redskins Mailbag:



Question: Who do you think would make the best free safety for the Redskins this year? Reed Doughty? Chris Horton? LaRon Landry? Or a player not yet on the team?

-- Sean K.

Gary: Lots of question on this topic this week. First of all, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett wants defensive backs who can play both strong and free safety because they could line up at either position depending on the play call. That said, Haslett appears committed to playing Landry closer to the line of scrimmage, as a strong safety, on many downs. Horton, who played strong safety the last two years, would likely be Landry’s backup. That likely leaves Doughty and Kareem Moore competing for playing time opposite Landry, at free safety. Doughty and Moore alternated at free safety during the Redskins’ most recent mini-camp. Based on experience, Doughty has the edge, but Moore has shown some big-play ability--and big hit ability--in his limited playing time. This is going to be one of the top training camp competitions to watch this summer.

Re: Free Safety

Schemes like the cover-2 couldn't gives two craps about the distinction between free and strong, since all the nomenclature really boils down to is which safety gets to be on the TE's side. I know this is some 3-4 variant, but the safeties can simply be assigned portions of the field to cover.

That said, the least-knuckledheaded of the safeties should be playing the "free" role of being the last line of defense simply because one big mistake and it's a touchdown, and that means anyone but LaRon. Basically, I'll take Hal Gill over Mike Green.
