Per some guy named Adam Schefter (yeah no idea who he is either), Tim Hightower is visiting the Patriots today

I've been wondering why the Redskins haven't re-signed Tim Hightower. Perhaps they feel confident with Royster and Helu. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Redskins drafted a young running back prospect in the later rounds.

hall's been a poor true #1 cb for more of his career. i'd imagine a new year and a new coach aren't going to change that much, judging from past performance.

I don't understand why people are so worried about being able to find a replacement for Hall if the team cuts him for cap space.

Andre Goodman, Kelly Jennings, Chris Johnson, Phillip Buchanon are all UFAs right now. None would command more than a one year deal.

Ultimately, you have to replace him through draft and development, but that was never not the case, and it doesn't matter if he's on the roster or not: it doesn't make acquiring a starting CB more difficult.

C'mon Tripp none of those guys have the playmaking ability of Hall. Especially Johnson and Buchanon.

We all wish Hall would give consistent effort, both mentally and physically, but it's a little silly to pretend he's nothing more than an average talent.

Pats also had Grant and Addai visit. I can say with 98.375% confidence we're bringing back Hightower and adding Owen Schmitt.

2, 4, 6, 5: win totals with Hall on the team.

I'm not going to argue for or against Hall as a playmaker today, but I will tell you that no correlation exists between plays he makes and games the Redskins win. Its entirely possible that we would have won fewer (or more) games in 2010 without him, but because the team has had so little success and because he's such a liability in coverage, there's no argument to be made that he's a significant or critical member of the team going forward.

Right now, he's just getting paid a decent percentage of our cap. We can easily work it out so we can keep him, but what's the point? We've had his age 25-28 seasons and didn't get anything from them in terms of coverage on the back end. I highly doubt it's going to get better as he ages.

And I wouldn't see the evil of cutting Hall and his $6 million salary, and then bringing him back at 1 year/$1.5 million. It's more than he would get elsewhere, he can still wear the 'C' patch on gamedays, and we're saving more than $4 million on the cap to do so.

Would we cut young or carry 2 FBs? Either way I can't say I'm in favor of that move.

Someone would probably pay him more than 1.5 million. Besides.. he's still probably our best corner, which isn't saying mcuh. Hopefully Morris can get him to play to his potential.

I like both those moves.

I like this idea though my intuition is a restructure w/ us is more likely because some franchise will pick up Hall on a 3 yr contract.

And the 1.625% has you leaning where? Also I have no problem with adding Schmitt. We were carrying 2 FBs last year and it's not as if Darrell Young is Vonta Leach.
