Report: Redskins will target Jenkins brothers, Holmes in free agency | Rich Tandler's Real Redskins

First I'd really heard Holmes' name mentioned for us. Cullen and Kris have been on our radar for several years actually. And I see Yanda as a longshot personally. Ravens will do anything they can to keep him.

Help on the lines is priority #1 in FA

I'd like to see the Skins FO accept that they are in the process of building a team and, accordingly, draw a line in the sand in terms of the age, injury risk, and knucklehead risk that is acceptable in the players they pursue in Free Agency.

To be more specific about the age limit, I would like them to stay away from players who will be older than 28 at the start of the season.

Based on the above and his ability, I think that Yanda, who turns 27 on 9/15, would be perfect.

Holmes is a very good player who is only 27 but he fails the knucklehead test. The risk of his being suspended for one year due to a second substance abuse policy violation is worrisome to me. Still, he is a very good player and he's only 27. I'm torn on this one.

Cullen Jenkins, at age 30, is a little older than I'd prefer but I think he's a good fit for our defense at RDE. I think I might make an exception to the age limit and go after him.

Kris Jenkins is a very good football player who plays a position of great need for the Redskins. Unfortunately, he fails both the age and injury tests for me, so I hope they pass on him.

I would definitely re-sign Jammal Brown and Rex Grossman.

I think we need an ILB, so I'd like to see the Skins go after Kevin Burnett (age 28).

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

I'll take the entire list in that article EXCEPT Holmes.

1. We do not need him at WR, a deep position.
2. We do not want someone like him on the team.

Just sign Moss.

I wonder what happened to make this news public? Redskins FO have been tight-lipped about what they are doing and plan to do.. On other hand, the list seems pretty good, I have no complains except for Kris Jenkins. Kris have history of injuries, but perhaps playing beside with his brother will motivate Kris to play hard and throughout injuries if it comes up.. I really hope we will be able to resign Brown and Moss - the veterans are essential to our offense.

So there is a chance we can have 3 Jenkins on our Dline at once. Kris, Cullen and Jarvis. Woah...

Holmes is better than Moss IMO

No question, but Moss knows the offense better than Holmes.. Beside if we actually sign both, I would think they play different spots - Holmes as #1 and Moss as #2 or slot WR.

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

I'm a believer of "you can't have too many targets" So I'd take Holmes or Edwards right now

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

What if the only way to get Cullen Jenkins was to sign his brother? Is he worth that?

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

I've got no problem with bringing in Kris Jenkins. Yeah the injuries are a bit of a concern but in a rotation I think he can still be productive.

I'm okay bringing in Kris Jenkins for a reasonable contract. From what I saw on Hard Knocks, he seems to be a good locker room guy. Plus he's got good experience at the NT position on a very good defensive team. He could be an asset to help bring up the young D-linemen we drafted.

NFL.com news: Redskins prepared to make run on big free agents after lockout

In this article, JLC said that Redskins plans to pursue to resign Philip Buchanon.. I think it's starting to look obvious that Redskins like Kevin Barnes as a replacement .

I want Barnes to have a chance to start, after sitting for 2 years.. I like Joseph out of those three.. Well, of course I would love to have Nnamdi but I expect him to be well out of our budget range, which leaves to Joseph and Taylor. Arizona traded Taylor back to Steelers for a reason and then Steelers apparently won't resign him for a reason. I do not want to find out what the reason is.
