Helu, Royster, and now Johnson represent a shift in philosophy regarding the appropriate investment in the RB position. They come a dime a dozen, so unless it's an Adrian Peterson level talent, why burn a first day pick on a RB? Get them late and focus on other positions with your first day picks. Love it.

We need to continue the depth building process and get that QB of the future on the roster. Long way to go but I like the way they're allocating resources. Picking a pass rusher in Kerrigan early, and then waiting to get the RBs off the scrap heap is the right approach.

Im starting to wonder if Shanahan is gonna go after Hillis next year. I think Hightower will be back next year but may not be as effective as he was before. We need a big rb who can also block.
Well, last season, I noticed Keiland Williams and even Mike Sellers being outlets while Torain was hardly involved at all(or at least absolutely unmemorable), so I doubt his hand was a major factor.

I doubt Shanahan will pursue Hillis very hard. He'd probably offer Hillis a low, inexpensive offer that is far below what Hillis wants.

IR'd earlier this year. He'll be back for somebody if not us. If I remember, he could catch as well as run.

In addition, Hightower's contract is up this year so he is a free agent. To get him back, the Skins will have to do more than just wait for him to show up in Ashburn for the off season rehab program.


A few posts back someone ragged on Royster's pass catching abilities. He may not be a great receiver, but he does not have "stone hands" either. He can be in the game on third and long...

Quick hits: Helu limited again, Landry hasn’t had surgery yet - The Insider - The Washington Post

This is a good link updating allot of things, also gives insight into the Torain cut.

Washington Examiner ran a short piece mentioning that at least one NFL team wanted to sign him off our practice squad, but did not say which team or teams had interest. Implication was that Shanahan used this circumstance as reason to release Torain and promote (protect) Robinson.

Another team was about to snag Robinson from our practice squad. So they needed to make a roster move and ATV was expendable after Royster showed he can be a back up or starting back here. ATV ODD man out.
