Bolstering the OL by signing WRs.
Seems counter intuitive to me, but hey what do I know?
Well look at how many wr New England has signed this off season. I don't hear anyone complaining or making jokes about what they do.

New England's OL > Redskins OL

I like this move. A lot, actually

Yeah, bruce I believe drafted him. And he probably asked Raheem if he was worth bringing on.

He was drafted by the Bengals not Allen.

Re: Redskins Claim WR Dezmon Briscoe

As someone posted earlier, best case he does for us what Laurent Robinson did for Dallas last year, come in, play if/when someone gets hurt and makes the most of his opportunity. If not, then he's a camp body that plays with us until the end of August and we don't have to think about him again.

Gauging from the fact that 4 teams also put claims in for him, he's 22 and would be the youngest and biggest (and statistically one of the more accomplished over the past 16 games played) receivers on our roster, chances are he makes the final 53.

Re: Redskins Claim WR Dezmon Briscoe

But why did he fail his physical with the Bucs? What type of injury is Dezmon Briscoe recuperating from?

Redskins claim WR Dezmon Briscoe - The Insider - The Washington Post

Quote:
Briscoe had been waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He led the Buccaneers with six touchdown catches last season but, according to reports, missed some of the teamís voluntary offseason workouts and failed the clubís conditioning test before training camp. According to the Tampa Bay Times, that test requires players to run 16 sprints of 110 yards apiece in a predetermined amount of time.

Re: Redskins Claim WR Dezmon Briscoe

There's a rumor going around, that Fat Al was Briscoe's trainner for the conditioning drill.

From an earlier post of mine

His departure from Tampa was more due to not showing up for all voluntary workouts this offseason, Schiano wanting to implement a new culture which means some surprise cuts.

Bucs had planning to move him long before he failed his conditioning test (and who knows what that means exactly).

I'd be surprised if he makes a impact honestly but we'll see

His problem is that he probably needed a coach like Schiano to give him a kick. Someone else said he's like Devin Thomas. And he kind of is, not in style of play, but in desire and making football a priority. He's got the talent though, for sure
