Griffin to Garcon is going to rule.
Typical over reactionary BS. Dudes act like we gave him a Calvin Johnson contract or something. He was considered the third best WR prospect (production/age combo) in free agency and he got the 2nd best contract, mostly because Colston went back to NO and he's had 2 micro fracture surgeries in the past 26 months. He got a contract that when it's all said and done will be around market for a moderately productive WR who is 26 years old and his curve is ascending.

I think that the perfect offseason for some people would be if we:
-Re-signed all of our players whose jerseys they have hanging in their closet
-In free agency signed young, All pro players (preferably guards and tackles) to incentive laden contracts with a base salary of what else, VET MIN
-Repeatedly traded down until we had 2 picks in every round (not sure if they'd ever be used though)

And of course, win 13 games with 'young, hungry' players.

If we also sign Royal... where does Gaffney fit in?

Jabar Gaffney was indeed our best WR last season. He would have been our leading receiver even if Moss didn't get injured. If the Redskins cut Gaffney, that would really surprise me.

Nope, I think it's just getting crowded at the position. We need to keep him.


New England has just stated they'll bring him back if we cut him.

It may be a mild surprise only because we'd probably prefer someone with some experience in the system but he's really just an older version of Morgan. He's got no deep speed and is a possession receiver. I can see him in our rotation next year but I can just as easily see us moving on from him.

New England can have Gaffney for a low round pick. Come on BA, start dealing! LOL.

Don't be too surprised, cause there's already whispers of it being a possibility.

He was definitely our best WR last year but that's not really saying much. As well as he played he's not a playmaker, and it's obvious that's what we need more than anything.

Or

1. Garcon
2. Hankerson
3. Morgan/Royal
4. Royal/Morgan
5. Paul
6. Robinson or 2012 draft pick

Without the offseason it's probably unlikely that Hankerson can elevate to #1 status but the hope is that he emerges as a #1 eventually.

Gaffney deserves another year here, but his trade value hasn't been as high since his early years & the position is getting crowded. Look at it this way, if the coaches feel like he's on the bubble to make the roster in camp, might as well get a late round pick for him, especially w/our recent trade factored in.

I guess he's expensive for depth, but I think he's a better WR than Josh Morgan. I'm probably in the minority there, but I would like to keep him for depth. I can see Morgan not panning out. Gaffney was productive in the system and could provide some veteran leadership to the new guys coming in. I'd like to keep him around.

Matty,

He may not be a gamebreaker -- but he's reliable which is something. He runs good routes and makes catches on balls near him. I think every team needs at least one guy like that.

Sending Gaffney to NE for a 4th or 5th wouldn't make me lose any sleep.

No way we'd get a 4th, or a top half 5th for him.

NE has been known to do weird deals like that. I remember a few years ago they gave the Iggles a 4th rounder for freaking Greg Lewis.
