Whatever. I'll trust the new regime on this one. God knows the old regime responsible for bringing DT here doesn't have any credibility. What's more likely: Shanny and Allen have no idea what they're doing or Vinny and co. made a bad pick? You decide.
Enough said right there.

1- teams pay for potential, 2- he was a very good returner. 3- a 5th-7th rounder would have certainly been warrented.

Re: Redskins release Devin Thomas

If any team out there was willing to trade for him, we would have gotten something for him.

The fact that nobody would even give up a 7th rounder for him says 2 things: the rest of the league agrees with Shanahan, and/or they knew he was going to be cut so there's no use in trading for him.

Anything higher than a 7th rounder would have been a pipe dream anyway. The guy hasn't done squat.

Well, we have been shopping him for a while. Obviously if anyone had offered even a 7th rounder we would have taken that over just flat out cutting him. He isn't worth a side of rice pilaf apparently.

Having suspect agility and vision does not give him a high ceiling.

Yeah, plus Keenan hasn't been a coach for that long. Shoot it is practically yeseterday he was still an active player. Maybe Devin had a little attitude at practice as a result of not playing or automatically put on as a starter. Promote Austin and hope for the best. Maybe we should have traded for the "Freak".

Yeah, the guy was on the block for awhile and no takers. It just goes to show you how pathetic our overall roster is.

Re: Redskins release Devin Thomas

I thought he was somewhat unfairly put in the doghouse during OTAs for not being there all the time (and dropping passes didnt help I suppose) but he also came to the park before OTAs even started to get reps in and he was staying late each night. So maybe he just wasnt good enough

Re: Redskins release Devin Thomas

Not surprised nor am I that pissed at Vinny.

If you look at that 2008 second round--there are some real duds at WR; Jerome Simpson, Dexter Jackson, Limas Sweed, James Hardy. Only stud thus far is Desean Jackson. So it wasn't just the Skins that botched those WR evaluations. They just did it twice...

Eddie Royal was also a stud.

Re: Redskins release Devin Thomas

I'm wondering if Banks is going to take over at this spot too? I feel much more comfortable with him on KO rather than punts just because if he drops it (which I hope is behind him) he has time to pick it up and run without a huge disaster.
