Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

We still have the draft and June 1st cuts coming. Chill out folks.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

I think we will sign fletcher at some point, but my guess is he will be some where in the three to four million dollar range. If he really wanted 7-9 million, he wont be to happy. Unfortunately for him, thats market.

Gotta say, little disappointed in the Skins effort in FA to improve the team. Little headway in the secondary and Oline. Great effort to get a QB and WRs which is awesome, but not resigning Fletch is troubling as well.

So are we taking the chance with Kory L coming off a serious knee injury who wont be able to step on the field to possibly late august? Or Jamal Brown while still decent in run blocking, but is horrible pass blocker?

At this time we still have no answer at safety other than Maryweather(feminine spelling until he proves otherwise) who has struggled immensely the last 2 years at safety. A good friend who is a Vikings fan, first thing he said about C Griffin "talented, but takes alotta plays off. Needs to be motivated to give 90%". We have 3 spots at safety and 2 spots at CB including nickle where we need bodies. Gomes is the only guy worth returning at safety, he could challenge for a starters spot which is promising.

We need to grab some remaining talent. Our picks in the 3rd and 4th rounds are extremely important.

We need to pick it up a little bit, letting Josh Johnson get away is disappointing.
O Line was not as bad as most are making it seem. We did pretty average with TWO backup tackles at the end of the season. I bet if we paid big money to those back up tackles on the FA market you would complain still. Can we get past the draft?

Also, whats so good about Josh Johnson? Guy doesn't know the offense half as well as Rex. If we got him we would essentially have 2 rookie QBs coming in. Would have been nice to get it but it's not a big deal and nowhere near a disappointment.

We have had worse Free Agency periods where we went out and got the people we needed but overpaid. We're in good shape.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

I'm perfectly fine with Grossman as the backup. His decision-making and at times his accuracy and throwing ability blows goats, but he does know the offense very well and can help Griffin learn the playbook.

Also, there's NO chance of him challenging Griffin for the job. As long as he's content being the teacher and backup, he's a far better backup to have than an outsider.

Can't fix everything in one year. As far as the o-line is concerned I think that they think that the younger guys that got some time last year will improve.

The secondary is a potential disaster. You said it....They need to REALLY strike gold with the 3rd and 4th rounders and hopefully those picks will be secondary and 0-line. Those two guys might have to be starters or play significant time.

Josh Johnson?? Really??? :confused:

What scares me is that Shanahan will say..." we're going to play the guy who gives us the best chance to win!" And then comes Rex to start the season. We all know he doesn't like to play young guys. We may not see RG3 til mid season.

i really, really hope this doesnt happen, i really cant see it happening considering how bad rex played. RG3 gives us the best chance i beleive, i think he will pick up things fairly quickly in the full offseason. There will be hiccups but thats expected.

Dont worry. He said that with Rex and was right. Said with fat ass Albert and was right. RG3 will start day one, barring he turns out to be a complete idiot.

how many more years Shanny got? Id really like Mo Hurt to step up on the inside at Guard, think he can improve and make a difference. RT is a serious issue, amazed this hasnt been addressed.

The Patriots added about 3.5 (using AV as a measuring stick) times as much vet talent as the Redskins did, using about half the cap space to do so.

It can be done, but the Redskins obviously felt their entire roster was really close to being playoff-caliber, just was short on the end of passing and receiving.

So now that those needs are taken care of: super bowl!

Here's why nothing this team does surprises me: I saw Casey Rabach start 32 games AFTER I realized he was a known weakness on the offensive line that opposing coordinators would exploit. Then after those 32 games, Shanahan gave him (and Mike Williams!) a 3 year contract extension. And he arguably played worse for Shanahan/Forester than he did for Zorn/Bugel.

Call me crazy, but I don't see a snowball's chance in hell of that happening. Griffin is too smart and too talented to not have on the field, especially after what we gave up for him. Even if it means scaling back the playbook for him, he will be out there.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

Why the hate for Josh Johnson? I personally dont think he is a bad player and see him as 3rd QB who could push then replace Rex as the no 2 this year or next year. i was disappointed

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

i think we might be out of cap space until the fine gets reduced or players restructure.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

So, Anthony Collins re-signed with the Bengals. Do we have any other plans to improve our OL in free agency? Offer Demetrius Bell a one year contract, make him prove it. I hear the Bills are only offering a one year vet min. Give him a bit more. See how he does. At worst, he's solid depth.
