I'd rather keep Moss AND Gaffney. He's only played all 16 games once in his 4 years in the league anyway. Royal has done essentially nothing since 2008, his only big stat year.

Eddie Royal, WR for the Denver Broncos at NFL.com

Niles Paul can return.

Niles Paul hasn't proven he can return or catch effectively yet, just block effectively. He tips our hand whenever he gets on the field, which negates his prowess at blocking.

One of Moss or Gaffney needs to get the snip-snip, since it makes no sense to have two possession guys who don't scare defenses deep.

I don't hate our offensive line. I don't think our right side is very good, but I would rather re-tool the line than rebuild it from scratch.

Our left side was actually pretty decent until Stieger got hurt and Williams got suspended. I think Chester would be better with a better center (Myers perhaps or Steiger if we signed Briesel to play LG) playing next to him. Not sure about Brown, he seems like a solid backup but done as a starter at this point.

The actual big deal is that Moss isn't going to make the team, which is the admission the Redskins made with Royal.

As far as getting outbid on Royal...thank god we did. One of the worst regular offensive players in football the last three years. Better options out there with Steve Smith, Jairus Wright, Eric Page, or even Moss.

Agree on Chester. If we moved him to C or even left guard, he'd work well there and his contract would look a lot better.

I think Jammal Brown actually has a nice skill set to slim down just a bit and play a ZBS right guard. He lacks the footwork to play tackle, but could do what Mike Williams did for us in 2009.

Anyway, that's how you could upgrade at two or three positions on the OL while keeping the same set of starters. Just have to add a RT then in the draft.

Oh well...he could have replaced Moss & Banks. Disappointed we didn't get him on one hand but I was also one of the guys who wanted to see what some of our current young WR's could do with improved QB play. Want to see Hank, Paul & Robinson get a shot for playing time.

I'm okay if we don't sign Royal. I just hope Shanny doesn't go on a WR spree again like last season.

re: Redskins Add WRs Pierre Garcon and Joshua Morgan

While I'm a bit disappointed we are probably not getting Royal...I do think we need to focus that portion of the salary cap toward other needs. Garcon and Morgan are good additions. Hopefully Hankerson develops further this season.

Steve Smith physical with the Rams.

My guess is no. IMO last year was a desperate attempt to stock up on bodies to find a diamond in the rough. This year seems like, "F that, let's get a few of proven quality."

The Chargers have gave Royal a physical. I just cant imagine them giving him more than 6 million a year, to be there returner and 4th reciever. Crazy.

re: Redskins Add WRs Pierre Garcon and Joshua Morgan

Yeah, I think Morgan, Garcon, and Royal are all similar enough and statistically close enough that it's not a big loss. Might not be a loss at all.

Would be nice if there's another Victor Cruz out there this year.
