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.

Not like we needed a healthy starting right tackle or anything

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

He's also changed the spelling of his name to DeMetress...and when Orakpo has him lying flat on his back, we can call him Da Mattress...ba zing!

Anyhow, 5 year deal is about 4 years more than most people though he'd get. So it will be interesting the details

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

From Matt Williamson's NFL Chat:

NR (Columbia, MD)
What are some options at right tackle for the Redskins now that Bell is not available? I don't like going into the season with Jammal Brown as the only option, given the questions on his health.

Matt Williamson (12:05 PM)
Yeah, I don't blame you at all. Good observation. Maybe M McNeal or Pashos. It's not like the Skins have draft picks to get a lot of impact in the draft.

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

I know it maybe be difficult to hear this, but Trent Williams is going to return as LT.

I didn't know this was a bad thing. And welcome to the board.

Interesting screen name, no?

Also, a lot of people will be disappointed to hear that. We were all counting on Trent Williams to not return as LT, so we could continue our master evil plan to destroy our beloved Redskins.

Thanks, I was reading alot of peoples mock o-line and their starting lineup didn't include Trent Williams; I guess they think he's going to get suspended, or something. That's why I said that, should have probably quoted it.

He will be in a Skins Uniform next year. He is a better player than JB.

Ah ok. Yeah I have no idea why Trent wouldn't return as starting LT. He served his time so he's good as far as I'm concerned (as long as he stays away from the weed.) I'm glad he got his 4 game suspension out of the way last year though, because I'd hate to see him miss the first 4 games this year while RG3 is hopefully in the lineup.

Okay that explains your comment. Unless something drastically changes, I think TW will be back at LT. Hopefully he won't do anything stupid to get him suspended for a year.

Yeah, I don't think he will; he's not that stupid.
