Re: 2012 Free Agency Wish List

Royal could be a Gaffney type of player here. I'd have no issue with bringing him in, but he doesn't solve our need for a big play guy.

Re: 2012 Free Agency Wish List

I'm all for Eddie Royal, and I think Eddie Royal is all for Mike Shanahan.

He brings some legitimacy, and more big plays.

Colston--we need height!
WR-Colston, Gaffney, Moss, Armstrong and Hankerson
RB-Helu/Hightower
FB-Young/Schmidt
QB- RGIII/Rex/Hill or Hoyer

If Nicks wasn't what Shanny was looking for in a guard, why the hell would we give him a big money deal? You don't sign players that you aren't sure can fit your system.

Pretty sure Armstrong will be gone and why was Royster left out there.

He only had 2, count'em 2, 100 yard rushing games the entire season. That's only one more than Torain. Why would we keep him?

Lol. How many did Hightower have again? We keep him because his initals are ER and that's where he sends defenders.

Plus Royal will only be 26 at the start of the season.

Can we really use two players with the initials, ER?

I don't see why not. Better than getting "MF" Matt Flynn right?

Colston: Matty may recall that I told him 2-3 years ago that we liked Colston a lot and were going after him. But we're going to have to outbid the Saints and Jaguars for him (and Bowe maybe to J'Ville as well), and Allen does not intend to get into bidding wars for them

Royal: Almost a lock...but then again so was Davin Joseph last year

As for the draft, I've only heard of interest in Wright, Criner, and Rainey

And Moss and Armstrong are definitely on the bubble
Colston would be a nice addition, all 6'4" of him. Of course, durability is a concern with him, but when healthy, he's a true #1 and a nice big target for Luck. (please let that rumor come true) If we don't get far in the bidding war, Eddie Royal isn't that great a consolation prize. I've never been impressed with Garcon either, seems like he's had a lot drops at key times in drives/games.

Hear of any other FA targets at other positions?

Would also love Rainey late, but his skill set is pretty similar to Helu. As a Gator alum though, I've enjoyed watching him make a lot of defenders miss and run through arm tackles. He could be special, definitely would be a good replacement for Banks returning kicks.

YES!!! Stated in another thread a bit ago that I have loved that kid since he came out and I really wanted to draft him that year. But oh well would love to get him now.

SKINSFANinOk- Yo bud remember that Eddie's first year was with MS. I am sure their is mutual interest from both side for him to come here and join the skins. Plus I think MS just knows how to use the kid so I would be excited to have him. I would look to that first year as far as production rather than the last three.

WR would still need that #1 guy, but I would say it would be a safe bet that ER could take SM spot and be more productive. one thing SM does a ton of is drop the ball. He has not been that big play guy for awhile.

He would be a Skin right now had it not been for AJ Smith playing hardball. I remember there being huge interest from us but weren't about to pay the price that AJ wanted.
