No go Plaxico, or Muhammad?

Yesterday Joe Gibbs stated: "We'd like to solve everything we can through FA."
As far as in regaurds to Plax and Muhamad he stated; "do we have the money, do we have the cap room? I'd think it would be tough for us to go after one of those two guys"

So does this mean we won't try on these two guys? if so who will we try to target? So I ask u warpath, who would u go after outside of those two guys to sign as Wide reciever.

I still think Jerry Porter, David Patten, and Kevin Johnson are viable options for the team. As far as the draft, I really hope Mike Williams has a bad combine to make him avialable at #9 or past that. he will be a star in this league. I would love to see him at redskin park.

Re: No go Plaxico, or Muhammad?

I think that is exactly what he's saying, Gibbs doesn't want to pay an arm and a leg for a receiver. Muhammed is asking for a signing bonus over $10 million, and Plax would command a tidy sum as well. Trying to crunch them into our salary cap situation would create holes in other positions, it's just not worth it. Kevin Johnson seems alright to me, but I'm not sure how much of an upgrade he is on James Thrash or Taylor Jacobs. Jacobs, in my opinion, could do some damage if given a chance. I'd like him in the 3rd receiver role though. I'd love to see David Patten as a Redskin. He's hard working, humble, doesn't piss & moan, and he makes key plays when you need him to. He'd be a nice complement to Coles, and he'd be affordable under our salary cap.

I don't know what to think about Porter. He reminds me of Michael Westbrook to be honest, lots of ability and shows flashes of brilliance, but they don't come any more inconsistent.

I believe TJ Houshmandzedeh from the Bengals is available. I wouldn't mind seeing him in burgundy & gold either.

Re: No go Plaxico, or Muhammad?

I don't think Muhammad was ever a serious consideration, not when the first thing is agent says is basically show me the money.

Burress is an intersting option but he's going to be looking for some big bucks as well.

It's kinda refreshing to hear Gibbs acknowledge we can't go after a big name, high priced player. When was the last time we heard this from Redskins Park??

Maybe if we didn't go after Brunell last year it would be a different story, no sense in unearthing that conversation again though, LOL. I think we beat that horse in to submission.

Smootsmack, hasn't Taylor had injury problems throughout his career? If so, then no thanks.

Can someone find a list of the restricted or URFA's? Specifically a list of the available WR's?

Maybe Kerry Campbell???

Re: No go Plaxico, or Muhammad?

I'd explore the options of D. Patten or D Givens, but have great speed & good hands. Both would be an excellent #2.

Remember the Skins are looking for a good #2. Burress & Muhammed are #1's & they are looking #1 bucks.

I think Gibbs & company will find the perfect fit to compliment Coles & company.

Re: No go Plaxico, or Muhammad?

Smootsmack came up with a spreadsheet of all the UFA's and RFA's, once I get my lazy ass around to it I'll get it up on the site, hopefully tonight.

It was just the UFAs actually...once I get my lazy ass around to it I can add RFAs

Sorry, I just hadn't even thought of putting RFAs

Re: No go Plaxico, or Muhammad?

to be fair, gibbs also said he doesnt worry about the money and lets synder handle it. Which makes no price to much. mushin is looking for a final contract with big money though, hes on the way down

Re: No go Plaxico, or Muhammad?

Patriots recievers should be what we go after, they're good and don't draw that much attention. Plus they win. no RFAs this year, don't want to give up draft picks. we rather get them
