Re: free agency 2011

Maybe we can sign Sydney Rice and maybe a Legedu naanee this offseason.

Orton will be the biggest QB FA available IF Denver lets him walk but I doubt they will.

I'm probably in the minority on this one but I am 100% behind the players. The owners agreed to a deal and then backed out of it. They are trying to expand the regular season for no other reason but greed. You signed a deal, live with it.

Back on topic, I think we will be very aggressive in free agency (whenever it is) at the same time purging much of the carryover roster (Moss, Rabach, Dockery, Portis, Daniels, Carter, Sellers, maybe even Fletcher) in another transition year.

I agree with this, finding a good NT is a hard thing to do, and he simply is a great NT.

I would target a center, either cheap, like Lyle Sendline, or expensive like Ryan Kahlil

I would also consider going after a proven receiver like Vincent Jackson.

Dashon Goldson is a solid FS who is definitely an upgrade over Kareem Moore.

I very much disagree with you. The CBA expires this year. That is part of the deal the players signed to have these rules expire this year. They should live with the fact that they are making way too much money while the owners profits are diminishing. Theres no way any single player should be making more money than an owner, but it happens....hell a few owners are losing money every year. It is not greed, it is smart business, and it is not cheep, they have the right to not re-new the CBA because that was in the original contract.

Re: free agency 2011

What player is making more money than an owner?

Re: free agency 2011

Green Bay Packers' operating profit drops to $9.8 million - ESPN

I also remember reading an article last year about how much each team makes per year. A few teams lose money, and a whole bunch don't make very much. I'm sorry but I couldn't find the link.

Re: free agency 2011

NFL Team Valuations - Forbes.com

not the original list I saw, but these work too... I count 6 teams that some players make more than, and the seahawks and raiders apparnatly lost money. Not sure how reliable these numbers are, they seem off considering how much teams like the Bills and Jags made, but then again I do trust forbes. The numbers are apparently going down every year the way the CBA works.

Re: free agency 2011

Vincent Jackson is the only big free agent we need. The rest of the class should be made up of hard working role players.

Re: free agency 2011

No offense, I'm a little tired of having a team of hard working role players. I want some playmakers.

Re: free agency 2011

We'll need to make a few, high-quality (read: big money) signings in this class, which is an unreasonably strong class because no one really hit the market last year.

But there's a difference between giving a couple of big money deals to guys who can improve the overall quality of the roster, and what the Redskins do, which is give creatively deceptive not-so-big-money deals to players who don't actually improve the quality of the roster. More Andre Carters, fewer Adam Archuletas is what we need.

And by fewer, I mean none.

Which is to say we should fix this fallacy. We shouldn't give three year contracts to role players on the FA market, we should bring in undrafteds (like Brandon Banks, Keiland Williams, etc) to plug the same holes we would be filling in free agency.

I agree we should go after Jackson. I think we should also go after Ike Taylor, who plays the same defense we play.

I would also go after Ngata, Joseph, Greenway, Woodley, Rice, and Kiwanuka because they are really great players who all should be franchised to stay with their current teams. If they aren't, we can use them on our roster.

But we have to stop going after "next best" types in free agency. It's troublesome to pay "15th best in NFL at their position" guys like top three guys at their position, which is the mistake the Redskins continually make.
