well, you've made it clear you'd keep OA and LL at 5mill ea for this year from what i remember, and i don't think wasting that much cap space on guys that are going to be spending most of the year on the bench is any better of a plan than new blood...

I mean, if your problem with Atogwe was his cap number, then I buy his release as a positive. But that was a football decision, not a cap decision.

Lowery's cap number is $2 million btw.

Re: Redskins Sign S Brandon Meriweather

Meriweather wouldn't have been my 1st choice but it fills a need with a starting caliber player.
Meriweather has the skillset that once made him a pro-bowl Safety.
But his performance of late has not lived up to his talent.
Hopefully Meriweather has decided to re-focus and Raheem Morris can be a catalyst?
If so then the signing would be a steal.
But, even if Meriweather is merely average he fills a need at a fair cost.

Decent buy low opportunity, but I'm caught wondering what 'plan A' is.
Deep breaths everyone. How many games did Atogwe and Landry miss last year and where did the Defense rank at the end of the year? The biggest thing that could benefit the Defense would be a halfway decent Offense that doesn't turn the ball over, can control the clock and give the Defense a chance to play with the lead. Every team has holes and the Redskins are no exception. Giants had a crappy running game and the Pats had a crappy Defense. So what?

There is still the draft and free agent signings will happen through the summer. O-line did fine last year despite injuries. Besides, with a rookie QB, we will still be in rebuild mode next year.

Re: Redskins Sign S Brandon Meriweather

Not particularly crazy about this head case Meriweather.
A great pass rush and many sacks will cure a weak defensive backfield. Kerrigan will help. Orakpo needs to step up fulfill his potential. He played very undisciplined at times last year. It also seemed like Orakpo played worse as the year went on, which was a major disappointment.
Amazing that we can now say $2M is a small salary.
I am really tired of the salary cap. I wish it would go away. It destroys good teams.

Re: Redskins Sign S Brandon Meriweather

Dejon Gomes and Meriweather at starting safties with Doughty being the valuable back up swing safety, plus draft a young fast centerfield type saftey and hope he can replace Meriweather later this season or next season. I think Gomes is going to be good, plus he was drafted by our team, I like the idea of having as many starters as possible being drafted by the team.

Secondary and O-line depth will be the focus of our draft and I am confident they will find some solid players.

Doughty is only good at being burnt toast.

Anyone is better than someone that can't stay on the field. That's just common sense.

Or celebrate after letting an opponent get a first down.
