Most of our guys are aging "system" guys. I think those two -- and maybe Landry and Fletcher as well -- would be assets on the free agent market in any system.

Well, of course Orakpo as well, but he's still three and a half years from free agency. That's an eternity in the NFL.
Do you really think Rogers would get big money? Even with all of his dropped INT's?

Re: Lorenzo Alexander

Lo Alexander is just a football player. End of discussion.

His actual job is to defend passes not to catch the ball. I think he gets paid weel but would get more if he was making those ints.

Catching the ball is part of his job since part of any defensive player's job is to get turnovers. He's got one part of his job down(coverage) but not the other(forcing turnovers).

Re: Lorenzo Alexander

I have been saying for the last couple of years, the guy just makes plays every game. Whether its special teams, DT, DE, he just ends up making a play during the game. As far as him at OLB, i think it is just as bad as Carter. Chris Wilson deserves a chance to play. He fits the role a whole hell of a lot better than those two DE's trying to play OLB. Wilson is quicker, not as bulky and can do both, rush and cover.

Re: Lorenzo Alexander

^Said the same thing earlier this week. Not sure why they don't have Wilson starting and Carter/Alexander as the back-ups. Wilson already has the experience at linebacker (backing up Orakpo last year) and has shown he can handle the position, at least for now.

Re: Lorenzo Alexander

Let him play OLB all season, see how he does & then give him an extension w/some starters $. If anybody deserves it it's him.

Re: Lorenzo Alexander

Wilson is the question I should have raised vs Carter. I know Wilson can pass rush, but I'm not sure of his coverage ability and I've seen him over commit on running plays. I was impressed with Alexander's speed for a guy his size, though, and the fact that he doesn't give up on plays. He chased someone down the other day and that's not something you see too many guys at 270 doing...

Re: Lorenzo Alexander

If Wilson plays well at OLB, might be interesting to try him as s starter in Lorenzo's OLB spot and move Lorenzo on the inside, where his size would be appreciated. NOt knocking Rocky but he is kind of smallish to stand up to an unblocked OG.
Please keep Carter off the field except to rush the passer. He is so one dimensional it is time to get rid of him when we can find someone or two to replace him.

I remember he injured something trying to chase down Brian Westbrook.

I think he's like our Anthony Spencer/etc/etc. The run stuffer, etc of our D.

Re: Lorenzo Alexander

Wilson has been playing a little more and more the last few weeks if I am not mistaken.

Lorenzo is a great player, and one of the coolest Redskins players as we all have seen. Since he actually answered our questions via video message!

Carter also has no hands bro, to much tape I guess.
