If I heard right, they each lost 15 lbs. I believe

I would like to see them both clean out their lockers...

They were good Redskins in their day but we are going young and I would rather see RG3 spend his time building a rapport with the players that will be here for the long term.

Good idea. Let's get rid of good players so the 5th-7th round guys can get more reps.

Re: Redskins OTAs

Still need reliable vets to compliment "going young".

Ok sarcasm. Yes it is a good idea as a matter of fact. Do Moss or Cooley project as starters at the moment? I could be wrong but i think Cooley makes about 6 mil and Moss maybe 3 or 4...So you want to have about 10 mil in salary invested in players that will probably be sitting on the bench? Those 5th-7th round players that you dismissed have not peaked and may actually improve with playing time plus they can play special teams and help the team in ways Moss and Cooley can not. If Cooley and Moss are not in the starting lineup then they are basically useless other then as insurance against injury. And if they are in the starting lineup then it's not at the expense of the players you are thinking of, rather it's at the expense of players like Hankerson, Garcon, Morgan, Paul, Davis who we are hoping are the future of the offense. So yes the way things stand right now if given the choice I would prefer they are not on the team.

Re: Redskins OTAs

Starters or not, both should see significant playing time.

Moss maybe...but IMO that would be bad in a way because it means are young guys are not progressing. As for Cooley he has not been healthy since 2008. He used to be a good player but he's finished and Redskins fans don't want to accept it because he's such a fan favorite. He's slow and injury proned now. he has not had any yards after the catch in 3 years.

I honestly don't think Cooley is going to make the team. I think Moss fate will be determined by how the rest of the WR's look between now and the final cut in August.

Or maybe it just means Moss is still performing at a high level, if someone beats him out so be it, but regardless, whoever wins the spot will do so based on their ability, not their age.

Cooley was healthy in 2010 and had 77 catches in this offense. He's 29, not 39. Odds are he still has some productive years left.

I could see Moss having a good summer and cracking the lineup...I agree he still has some good football left in him. Disagree completely on Cooley...I think he is a shell of the player he used to be and we need to cut bait. And he was my favorite player on the team in his prime like he was for a lot of us...but I think it's over. The guy who used to catch a 7 yard pass and then drag defenders for another 5 yards is gone for good...

Starters - Garcon and Hankerson, Moss in slot.

Re: Redskins OTAs

Cooley's future here all depends on his knee. If he's healthy I have no doubt he can still play.

Sure Moss has a shot for that with a good summer but the fact that they almost signed Eddie Royal for that slot job is proof that Moss is not exactly on the firmest of ground.
