Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Percy Harvin is seeking a trade out of Minnesota... I kinda wonder how much it would cost? (Presumably too much for us, anyway.)

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

hmmm i dont know and wouldnt send a 2nd for Harvin, but I bet there is a player the Skins would send.

Percy Harvin is the much better Eddie Royal we couldnt sign in the offseason. This is a YAC type, big playmaker.

Nah. I don't want to have 0 second rounders for the next 2 years in addition to the 0 first rounders we don't have for the next two years. Plus what's to keep Harvin from doing to us what he's currently doing to Minny? Not to mention the migraine concerns he's had in the past.

I think the migraine concerns have lessen because of a different treatment he started receiving last year. He played in all 16 games last year.

I dont think Minny would honor his request, but he is talent. Runs the ball, catches obviously and he would solve the kick return issue. Shanny would love this guy.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Really feel like we're already heavily invested in the WR position this year. Way too much downside on this for far too little gain, imo.

Completely agree. But I think it is a really fascinating 'what if' discussion. Just like the Talib scenario. Worth discussing, but ultimately, unlikely to reach fruition.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Our FO has been working wonders with draft picks the last 2 years. I think we can get a bigger impact from the picks than Harvin. We're deep at WR already.

Griffin was worth ANY price we could have paid, but we need to support him now.

My hope is that Robinson turns out to be that shifty, speedy slot receiver that we need. All indications from OTAs and minicamp point to that assumption. We'll see once the pads come on.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Robinson could and probably should replace Banks as the return man too.

That's an intelligent comment.

...assuming he can hang on to the ball. Preseason was very rough on Robinson. I'm glad we stashed him on the PS. He needed time to develop.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Who do you have returning then?

I really don't believe Banks will make it as a WR, so he won't make the team.


Terrence Austin is a good option. He or Robinson should be a returner for us. I don't want Moss or Hall out there full time, or any of our starting secondary guys. We're already thin enough in the secondary to risk losing someone on a punt return.

I'm only talking about Robinson because the people that are allowed to witness the practices won't stop talking about Robinson. Same reason why we all talk about Minnifield, really.

I completely agree. I'd hope that TA or Robinson beats out Banks. With presumably three QBs on the opening day roster, I have to assume that we won't have the ability to hang on to Banks (which is fine by me).
