Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

If we go into the season with Grossman and Beck as our top QBs, I think Grossman starts week one

They definitely want interior OL help, Joseph is probably out of reach and Yanda might be too actually

I don't really know Haynesworth at all, but have had the chance to meet Kris Jenkins multiple times and he's the complete opposite of what we all perceive AH to be-personality wise. Super nice guy. From a locker room and community and media relations point of view, he'd be a godsend. On the field is probably another story

I think Holmes is not likely to happen

Aubrayo Franklin is high on the radar. But could be another one out of reach

Kevin Burnett could be another target

Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

Rex loves Holmes and will never let him go...forget about getting him and aim lower.

ILB will be one of the more interesting camp stories, if there's a camp. Rocky's chances of staying have increased, according to SS, and then Lorenzo moving to ILB adds another. I would really like to see that position play out w/the guys we have, including Rocky.

Quite a sensational title for the article, JLC. Ah, some things never change.

Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

This is, what, the 7th straight week we're we've been linked to yet another player?

I mean...it's getting to the point where it seems like we're targeting EVERY free agent available. It's ridiculous. We can't try and get EVERYONE.

Marshall Yanda though would be a Great addition to this team, thats a signing I'd approve.

Kris Jenkins- I've said it before, why get a guy who's coming off two acl surgeries in the past couple of years, On the same knee. We just signed Kemo with his knee problems and that one didn't do anything now did it.

Cullen Jenkins I'd love to have.
I don't care about legal problems unless Holmes is suspended in the playoffs. I agree with the kris Jenkins point, but would still love to sign him to have him next to his brother. I think that would help create great team chemistry. Plus Jenkins could teach other's how to properly play the NT position in the 3-4. Even from a coaching perspective (haslett/shanny) picking up cullen and kris. They can say how things were done in GB and how things were done in NY, and Haslett can sample that and use it to improve our overall defense.

Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

I just want to say that I am a logical person, and a fan of the tank for luck strategy. However, I am red in the face with excitement right now about all the free agents we are looking to pick up. The fan in me is overtaking what I know is in the best longterm interest of our team and is totally on board with buying every free agent mentioned. I wonder how long my excitement will last? I'll probably complain about how this was the dumbest thing we could possibly do at the end of the season (which it probably is) but I'm just so excited to see us (hopefully) signing all these guys. My emotions are taking over my better thinking.

It's not the same thing. Backups don't have the experience as players that execute and actually get to play and see what works and what doesnt. Plus if healthy Jenkins can actually contribute to our team, and if not, he can provide leadership to our other NT's. But I do see your point. Although I don't think it is quite the same, you are mostly right with regards to backups being able to give info on other systems to haslett. But I don't think these players are being pursued purely for their knowledge of other systems, I think it is simply a bonus that adds to us wanting them.

I also think signing Barry Coefield could be a way to get info on the giants (as a plus...not that I don't think we don't want him)

Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

Also Kris will be cheap after two awful injury filled seasons. He will be low risk with possible high reward pick up

Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

I mean if we're forced to spend the ton of cap space we have, which players are we looking at to realistically get?

Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

Fingers crossed on getting Cullen Jenkins.

Yanda or Chester would be nice additions.

Cofield? Is he a small NT or a big DE? He might be a square peg in our system.

Holmes would be good if we are looking to add weed smokers to the locker room.

You must have a very interesting definition of logical.

Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

Why are we even talking about this? Why are we considering at all that this could possibly be true-ish

We're talking about Jason LIECanfora here. When is the last time he reported anything about the Washington Redskins that was anything close to the truth? When was the last time he reported ANYTHING on ANYTHING that was anything close to the truth, that wasn't already said by a much more reputable source?

The guy specializes in sensationalism. He specialized in it when he was here, and he has a stick up his butt about the Redskins ever since he left. There are a lot of guys who throw crap at the wall hoping it sticks, but Jason LIECanfora has a crap machine gun with unlimited ammo. This is the man who STILL insists that the Redskins are looking to sign JeMarcus Russell. Is he saying that because thinks we actually are going to sign him, or because he knows it'll make non-Redskins fans guffaw at our stupidity while it drives views to NFL.com to see his stupid articles?

Out of nowhere during the draft on the NFL Network during the draft, when they were talking about our draft class and John Beck, out of nowhere LIECanfora goes "You know, I heard that Marc Bulger was someone that they were interested in last year that they could sign!". Really, Jason? Because ya sure as hell didn't report that last year, nor did you have any inkling that McNabb was going to end up signing here.

The guy is a hack on the highest level. Here's a tip; if Jason LIECanfora claims we're going to do anything, be prepared for the football team to do the exact opposite. If he says we're not going to do something, it's probably the thing we're going to do.
