That's why I would assume there would be a reason to find a replacement. You know he will play with the guys in front of him.

I would rather they find a replacement for the guys in front of him. Although, the coaches seem to have faith in him for some reason, he seems to be going into the Rabach zone (a player that was kept from year to year despite their poor abilities).

Great personality, can take a hit can dish out a hit..... when he's in position and not behind the play. Come on folks, he never could cover as a FS and when he was shift closer to the LOS and basically used as a SS he couldn't cover there either. When your supposed to be the last man or last obstical how are you going to end up behind the play chasing it down half the time?

He's like that cousin everyone has that you love cause he's family but some how seems to screw up occasionally. Then to decide your not going to have surgery in hopes you'll come back 100%, but didn't. Then knowing you had a bad season your going to decide not to have surgery yet again and more then likely come back no more healthier then before? Bye. Good luck. Hope we don't have to play against you but if we do we will put you in situation where you have to cover someone.

A healthy LL has a high value, IMO. But I doubt that he'll stay healthy unless he has surgery to repair his achilles problem which apparently has not healed completely using alternative healing methods.

An injured LL on the bench has no value.

I think I'd offer him a multi-year deal contingent on his having surgery on his achilles. If he again refuses to have the surgery, I'd probably offer him a one-year deal at a lower salary as long as there is a chance that he might get well enough to play by continuing non-surgical treatments. If he won't accept the one-year deal, then he can sign elsewhere.

I'd be reluctant to just let him go without attempting to work out a deal.

I am not one of those people. I have always thought that players should be able to get out of their contracts if they over perform. Why? Because the owners can cut them at will without having to pay them. Not sure why players even agree to such standards in the CBA. If a team can release a player during a contract and not have to pay him, then a player should be able to void his contract when he isn't paid appropriately.

gomes, moore, atogwe, horton, maybe barnes to an extent... we've tried to replace him, but everyone else is either worse or gets hurt.

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

Doughty is average and he fields a position that usually is occupied by average players.
That said based on what hes done on and off the field I'd love to have a Doughty jersey.
(under $50.00 of course)

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.
That janitor probably made $millions in stock options

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

I think all this talk of how well he is doing is aimed at getting him that 28 million on Thursday, and if that fails, drawing interest for him in free agency.

Everything else in this situation has been coldly calculated. So why not this too?

I don't think anything he does at this point is going to get the Colts to give him that $28M.

You know maybe not, but if that were the case why have'nt they llet him go yet. Maybe they are negotiating to keep him and all this talk along with the video are being put out there to get them to increase their offer. One of the guys I respect the most thinks the Colts want to keep him, Gil Brandt.

Like everything else, these things always go down to the last minute.

This way the Colts can say, we did our due diligence, we weighed all the options and in the end we had to do what we felt was best for the organization.

He's not staying.

The last two years I was quite surprised when he made the team coming out of the final cut down to 53.
