I think we need to renegotiate contract with whoever we can Cooley, Hall anyone that can add more cap space.

Why? I thought we were in the top two or three in terms of cap space.

Yeah but I've got BIG plans for this team, if we're giving up all those draft picks for RG(3) then we need to hit FA hard.

I would say the only big draft picks we are going to lose in this trade up are our second rounder this year and our first rounder next year. Anything from the 3rd round on is a crap shoot in terms of success in the NFL. I think we can acquire two starting caliber FAs this year's and next year's offseason.

The safety position has been a huge problem ever since we lost Sean Taylor. A healthy Landry and Atogwe would be fine, but Atogwe is getting older (will be 31 when the season starts) and who knows what will happen with Landry.

Despite of what people think, we could survive with the CBs we have now (it may be ugly though), but not with the Safety problems we have been having for a while. I would rather see the team spend money on a safety and adding depth at corner, than the other way around.

Although, I must say that an improved offense may even help us overcome some of the defensive deficiencies we had last season.

Re: Redskins: 2012 Off-Season-Free Agency/Trades

Our secondary is not organized. I bet we spend a few picks there if we dont trade picks.

Cap room doesn't mean you overpay guys for that aren't producing up to their salary. Do you think Bill Gates pays a janitor 400k a year? Nope. Why not? He has the money to do so if he chose. It's about doing smart business which is something we have long neglected. Cooley is going to have to restructure to stay, which I'm quite positive he will. He knows that Fred Davis is the #1 now, so he'll be a great guy coming off the bench or in the 2 TE set.

Ugh.. Barnes is the least athletic skill position player outside of Reed Doughty I've seen in a while. He's a stiff.

That does not bother me at all.

I think we add a couple of CBs in FA and the draft. We got to hit on one.

Re: Redskins: 2012 Off-Season-Free Agency/Trades

I really don't want to talk about Doughty. I know some of you guys really like him, but I can't believe we haven't tried to replace that spot in the last couple of years. He is a fair safety to some extent, but by no means a good player.

My comments were in response to a comment that made it sound like we were over the cap and desperately needed to restructure a whole bunch of contracts to get under the cap.

Now, Cooley has had injuries that have affected his play, hopefully he's healthy and can go back to his old self. He's 29, will be 30 by the time the season starts, so it is not like we are talking about some over the hill guy. While yes, I am sure the team would like if he restructured and it may happen, however, I personally don't think is a must situation.

It's funny though, when a player gets a bit older and the team wants to move on from them, we praise the teams for making a sound business decision. Yet when a player who outperforms his contract and wants to get more money, we say "shut up and just play ball".

You and I probably wouldn't even have an opinion on Doughty if Landry, Kareem Moore, and Atogwe have been reasonable healthy over the past three/four seasons.
