Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

Any news on new PS signings? Last I heard we still have four slots open.

Looks like we have at least one more slot filled. Looks like the 3rd QB is Jonathan Crompton, formerly of the Chargers.

Personally I would have tried hard to land Adam Weber but if the Shannys feel good about Crompton, cool. Any attempt to add talent to and get younger at the QB position is potentially a good move.

Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

FWIW, Rotoworld is listing Eric Olsen as a center for the Washington Redskins.

As far as his ability is concerned, he doesn't need to be a world beater; he just needs to better fill a team need than someone else who was on our roster.

Dolphins cut AJ Edds

I am a homer here for this former Hawkeye, but I know a few Dolphin fans that say he had a great preseason and they are pretty ticked off he was cut. I would like to see the Skins go get him as he is good in coverage and a complete backer.

Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

Crompton's an interesting choice. I remember him being a guy they seriously considered in the later rounds of the 2010 draft

Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

With the exception of Romo, Brady, and Cassel it's rare that a QB is a diamond in the rough, so to speak. The really goods are generally found in the first few rounds of the draft. And even then it's a crap shoot.

There's a trend with Shanahan where he seems to think that spending a high pick on a quarterback is not necessary because there's an abundance of undeveloped quarterbacks out there with high-round skill sets he can get basically for free. The reasoning can essentially be summed up as "why spend a first round pick on an undeveloped Blaine Gabbert if I can get an undeveloped Jonathan Crompton for free?"

I don't know if he's right or wrong (I suspect his guess is correct), but we're a year in now without McNabb, and Rex Grossman's still the starter, which at least suggests that Mike Shanahan hasn't quite discovered how to take an unwanted quarterback with a good skill set and make him a franchise level player.

I think he's on to something, but if John Beck is the best example of an unwanted player who fits what Shanahan is trying to do, I think it's difficult to believe to think Shanahan is close to finding an elite quarterback in the trash heap. And I think to a degree, both Mike and Kyle Shanahan expected to be further along at the QB position right now, even if no one else in the world did.

Well, Shanahan did extend an offer to Romo during his time as Denver's HC, but Romo decided to go to Dallas.

I liked him in college. I wouldn't mind taking a look at him on the practice squad. The kid put up numbers, and was a gritty player at w.michigan.

I was a huge proponent of drafting LeFevour on here while the masses wanted Bradford or Cutler.

I certainly did. He's a local guy.
But he keeps getting that weak arm bad rap.
