Hightower is not the only veteran RB on the market, and also he is coming off a ACL injury. We don't have to rush to sign him and we are not going to over pay for him either. Other vet backs on the market are: Cedric Benson, Joseph Addai , Ryan Grant, LT ( Tomlinson) Ronnie Brown, Cadilac Williams.

You are right, but none of them have Htower's youth.

Re: Jabar Gaffney Released

I think the reason why we couldnt trade him to the pats was because entering the draft they only had two firsts and two seconds

Re: Jabar Gaffney Released

Since some have been wondering.....

Quote:
John Keim ‏ @john_keim
Shanahan says moss is in excellent shape. Says he's 15 pounds lighter... #redskins

Daniel Shiferaw ‏ @dshif
Shanahan says that Pierre Garçon, Josh Morgan and Leonard Hankerson are likely "at the top of the list" in terms of being potential starters

Chuck Carroll ‏ @FNNChuck
Shanahan says top receivers are TBD... lots of competition. High expectations for Josh Morgan and Pierre Garcon and Leonard Hankerson.

Skinscast ‏ @skinscast
Shanahan said Santana Moss is 15lbs lighter and in excellent shape
On another note people have asked about Cooley also...

Quote:
John Keim ‏ @john_keim
Shanahan says there have been no setbacks with cooley's knee. #redskins

Grant Paulsen ‏ @granthpaulsen
Mike Shanahan said Niles Paul has made a smooth transition to TE. He's 235 pounds and still running a 4.5. #Redskins

Rich Campbell ‏ @Rich_Campbell
Shanahan: Santana Moss weighs 15 pounds less than he did at the end of last season. Cooley's knee is not swelling after workouts.
Interesting note.... Niles Paul making a smooth transition and weighting 235lbs and still running a 4.5.

So which of the WR's will or should play slot?

Quote:
rant Paulsen ‏ @granthpaulsen
Mike Shanahan said both Josh Morgan and Leonard Hankerson can play in the slot. Santana Moss is down 15 lbs and in improved shape. #Redskins

ESPN 980 ‏ @ESPNRadio980
Mike Shanahan says Santana Moss is in great shape, 15 pounds lighter. Says best shape he's seen. Cooley doing great. Garcon not really slot

Rich Campbell ‏ @Rich_Campbell
Shanahan: It's highly unlikely Pierre Garcon will play in the slot. Morgan and Hankerson are stronger candidates.

Re: Jabar Gaffney Released

Last thing I'll say about Gaffney until we see Garcon in the regular season: I saw a quick NFL Network highlight of his amazing one-handed catch from the Vikings game...really impressive. Very glad the dude made it back to NE because money ain't everything and he's in a much better situation there.

I'll tell you I was at a cherity event recently and many of the Redskins were there, I saw many of the WR's Banks, AA, Robertson, Paul and I noticed Banks is short, Robertson is well not much taller then me it seemed at 5-7, AA was tall and skinny, but watching Paul.....I thought something was wrong. I thought oh wow Landry showed up, then I Realized it wasn't his number being worn. I then thought which LB showed up until I heard the announcer say the name Paul. He is huge. I was suprised and actually now knowing he's switching to TE makes me feel better cause I was worried about his speed.

He looks like a middle-schooler in that picture. Honestly he reminds me of this kid from Little Giants when he's standing next to the bigger guys.

Re: Jabar Gaffney Released

As I've said before, Banks looks like a 5-year old catching and running with a football.
