Sounds right to me. Yet it's also perplexing...I can't really think of a time when Brown looked like a bona fide starting RT during his time in DC?

The Skins will get no cap relief from releasing Brown and no one is going to take a chance on him, so the team will just need to bite the bullet and keep him.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

Uh oh........Bell's price just got higher

Free-agent tackle Demetrius Bell is scheduled to arrive in Philadelphia on Saturday night to visit the Eagles and will spend the night in town, a league source told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Bell visited with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Bell's visit was the Steelers' first with a free agent this offseason.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

After the Redskins draft RG3 or Luck with the first pick, Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan would be wise to turn their focus to the right side of the offensive line. They should draft a RT in the 3rd round.

With the 69th pick the Redskins select Bobbie Massey RT Ole Miss. If not him Schwartz will be the one.

Count on it.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

People keep talking about this Swartz kid from Cal. What about Willie Smith, a decent OT that we already have? The only thing about him is he hasn't played on the right side.

Depth. Willie is a defensive end turned OT. Could be great. Drafting a RT who has played that position and ready to play the position is glaring need. If he is good enough to start at that position then he should be drafted. Redskins have no depth on the OL and it's time all that changed. Two offensive lineman in rounds 3 and 4 and a safety in round 4 not necessarily in that order and we will have done good.

You cannot expect undrafted free agents to be ready to take over RT position in their second year. That's exactly how not to assimilate RG3 to the NFL. The reason he went undrafted is because he is a major project who needs alot of coaching, practice, etc before he can be depended on. Yes he did all right last year and got great experience but Massie and "the Swartz"(may the Schwartz be with you) are both still better players at even this point and have higher upsides to be full time starters in this league.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

I am not sure why Jamal Brown gets bashed so much. He is a good RT, when healthy. I he can recover from the hip surgery, he still can have two or three years playing at a high level. I think we have more depth on the Oline, than we have had in ten years. Our back ups are Tyler Polumbus(26), Willie Smith(24), and Maurice Hurt(24). All young and still improving. The only time the Oline could not protect the QB was when Eric Cook was in at center(I cant stand him). Brown had no off season therapy last year and is now two years removed from the surgery. I would be happy with them picking a RT, but I don't think it is an emergency. If we had not got screwed with the cap situation we would have signed someone like Eric Winston. That would have been a luxury, it not a necessity. I would rather them pick a linebacker like Mykal Kendricks in third.

That's primarily the problem right there.

I'd love to see what he can do at 100%. Shanahan recently said that JB has been working on his flexibility this offseason by taking yoga and that's helped in breaking up scar tissue. Let's hope that helps him.

The problem is Brown hasn't been healthy in two years. I mean you can only give a guy so much time to get healthy. As far as Willie Smith goes, he was an UDFA last year. Occasionally picking up UDFA's work out, but more often than not they are stashed and given time to grow, meaning multiple seasons on the bench, before they are ready to start on a full time basis. Smith showed flashes last year but I would stash him some more and then give him a look in a couple more years. He's good enough to be a backup swing tackle right now though.
