I'd say it's worth an offer on our part. Can't be worse than what we have now.

I would wait for the Cowboys to overpay one of these guys first and sign the less expensive options...although I'd be curious to see if there is a true interest in CBs, given that we need to replace Landry (and I haven't seen anything in rumors about us wanting a CB).

I don't see us signing a #1 WR and a #1 CB at the same time, especially when we need a starting Strong Safety. I mean we could sign a #1 guy at each of those positions, but then we'd be this year's Iggles. Personally, I see the priority as:

- #1 WR (esp since MS said so)
- A strong safety
- A right tackle
- CB depth (unless we get a cheap starter)

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

I would think that CB depth might be a draft priority. The WR question is one that I feel would be best approached in FA, just due to the number of quality guys out there, guys that could become our best option the moment they are signed. If we have learned anything the past two seasons tho, is that our FO is way more frugal than the previous, but I guess that is stating the obvious. I hope we pick up a #1 WR and add young CB depth thru the draft.

I agree but i like the cb pool much better than the safety pool, i really was hoping branch or griffin wouldnt get tagged but they did, not sure who we would have interest in. that being said we need someone i dont want gomes as a starter

I agree that the CB pool is much better, but still the safety position is the bigger need...unless Haslett really likes Gomes as the starting SS. I'd rather get a starting-caliber SS than paying for Carr or Finnegan.

What safeties are out there in FA though? Tyvon Branch and Michael Griffin both got tagged.

Not many options...

Reggie Nelson is a name I recognize, Brandon Meriweather as well. Older guys like Brodney Pool and Madieu Williams are also UFAs. I am not saying we should get these guys, but they are the ones I recognize. Looks like we may need to gamble with Gomes, unless they get Laron somehow...which I doubt it.

All ages are of Dec. 31, 2012.

Despite that, there's probably someone's age that I'm off on, somewhere.
