LL is damaged goods at this point. Teams move on from guys like this all the time.

Agreed. And I already don't think he's going to get the guaranteed $ he is looking for b/c of the achilies. Which is why it was so silly to shut off talks when we did.

C'mon dude, let's hope Meriweather can turn things around here w/ a great DB coach. My assumption is Morris has significant input on our secondary now, so he probably thinks Meriweather can do something here. Let's give them both a shot.
Yeah lets not forget, the second best saftey to come through Washington, since Ken Houston, was supposedly a bust. Ryan Clark has been one of the best free safteys in the league, since the year he played for us.

Re: Redskins Sign S Brandon Meriweather

I look at the Giants and Green Bay, neither have great secondaries but very good to great front 7's. If we resign Fletcher I think our front 7 is pretty good. Riley is coming along, add in Jenkins if healthy and every players 2nd year in this defense. We just need some young guys to come along and our defense will be fine. Gomes was a rookie last season, he is gonna surprise some people this season.

I like the signing of Brandon Meriweather, this might be his "last chance" at a nice contract. If he returns to form he can get 15-20 million more before his career is over, if not he is a minimum salary guy for the rest of his days.

Sure, but do they ever end up with what the Redskins currently have?

I suppose the Patriots did last year, but that's a team that won the gamble that it could outscore people and ended up in the super bowl.

We're 2 days into free agency and still have the draft. I don't think they're done addressing the secondary yet.

It's hard to believe they would be at least. But if you look at the salary structure of the deals, it's clear to me that the only priority they have remaining is: No. 3 WR. After that, it's all bargain hunting.

Last year, they abstained from bargain hunting entirely (unless you count Sav Rocca). A function of the condensed offseason, perhaps?

EDIT - forgot MLB obviously. Must think they'll get Fletcher locked up if they're not bringing in a replacement.

Re: Redskins Sign S Brandon Meriweather

Does anyone know anthing about this Shawntea Spencer CB. I have heard he was an up and coming star that fell off a cliff after Carlos Rogers got there.

He was hurt last year, and probably throughout the lockout.

He had really good back to back coverage seasons. I can't remember if they were 2007-2008, 2008-2009, or 2009-2010, but he was a no. 1 CB in this league for a bit.

There is no market right now for Fletcher. According to the ES insiders, they are about 2mil apart right now, but Fletch doesn't have any leverage since there really is no market for him.


Also, don't forget about the draft and June 1st cuts.

Re: Redskins Sign S Brandon Meriweather

so, GT, what's our move at safety then? resigning a guy for a lot more money that can't stay on the field and doesn't really care? i mean, come on. there are a bunch of average ho hum safeties out there, and we're going to try a couple of them out.

Are you asking me where would I go from this point, or if I would have decided not to dig a hole in the first place?
