It seems to still be the general impression of the Skins that they will chase after the big names in Free Agency whether of not they are a good fit for the team. After all, Dan Snyder is still the owner, so why wouldn't they? Don Banks is simply expressing a commonly held view of how the Skins operate, although the way they operate may have changed. Nevertheless, even he acknowledged that the Skins handled the draft differently last time.

I don't think that the current Skins management will be viewed any differently by the general public (including national writers) than they were in the Ceratto era until it becomes so evident that a blind man could see it. That's just the way people are - we cling to our long-held impressions of others.

Personally, I don't care what Don Banks thinks or writes about the Redskins. On the other hand, I'm not sold on the Shanahan/Allen era yet, either.

I think the best option for NT after Franklin would be Branch from AZ. I am not sure if he's restricted or not, but he'd be a good additon to our NT rotation (Bryant and Nields).

Re: 2011 Redskins Free Agent Rumors and Reports Thread

I completely forgot about Branch, how did he fare in Arizona? I remember he fell down to 2nd round after the big hype, and if I recall right, the big knock on him was his laziness. I am sure he has the size to be NT, but if Arizona decide to let him go because of his laziness then I definitely do not want him.

As for those media claiming that Redskins will be big spender in FA; all I can say is, speculation is media's best friend. The idea of Redskins being big spender exploded right after JLC posted his article. And we all know how credible JLC is when it comes to Redskins.

Branch is an Anthony Bryant style player, though just 26. Basically, has the ability to two gap as a nose in the NFL, but the position coach needs to ride him hard to get adequate performance. Work effort concerns that caused him to drop to round two in the draft still evidence, according to Arizona reports.

I am in support of investing in more of the kind of player that Anthony Bryant is, and hoping that one of the two takes advantage of the opportunity in front of them to become the player we need. After all, we don't need both to pan out, only one, and we save a lot of money, and get improved performance over the average free agent.

Here is a nice article about Branch:

Stay Or Go: Arizona Cardinals Defensive Tackle Alan Branch - Revenge of the Birds

It seems that he was having some work ethic issues in his first two years, but seems to have improved in the last two. I am surprised that his name is hasn't been mentioned, since he is one of the true NTs out there (with the experience). Some of the other names mentioned such as Cofield and Okoye, would probably fare better as 3-4 DEs. I think Branch would be a good pick up and it would give us a nice young group of NTs.

I am for bringing Moss back, but why is Santonio Holmes being mentioned?? They seem to me to be the same type of receiver in this offense. I would think Hankerson and Kelly are the guys to watch early in camp. Also having Armstrong who has a year in the offense. I really dont see how we or why would bring in another reciever. Unless its a sydny rice. We need to invest the money on the oline, as we have seen, if the QB can't throw it, no one is going to catch it

Holmes is probably the backup plan, but I've heard the Jets don't intend on letting him get away.

Re: 2011 Redskins Free Agent Rumors and Reports Thread

I'm not too big on Holmes, solid player but not a dominant WR. I'd take him but not for big time $

Interesting pun. That's the problem, he's not so big himself. He's 5'11".

We'd be trading SantanA for SantonIO. Not to mention he carries more baggage than Santana -- Holmes has his substance abuse problems.

Re: 2011 Redskins Free Agent Rumors and Reports Thread

I really hope the front office (shanny) make resigning Moss a priority vs. signing Holmes. This would be the exact moves this franchise has made over the last 11 years. Letting your core guys leave to bring in a FA. We have to rid ourselves of these moves. We have young receivers and we need to develop them. Same as RB's, no need in bringing in a veteran. LB's, we have some young talent there. Lichensleiger (SP), Montgomery, seem to be ready to step up and play center. Let them compete for the job, Raymer has been good, but he may serve as a better back up at this point. We really need to develop our young talent.

All indications seem to point to that.

There are a lot of players on that list who are worth a shot. I'm very interested to see who the Skins sign.
