I don't know if anyone knows the answer to this question. Will Jonathan Crompton revert back to the Redskins practice squad again if no other team claims him?

Re: Official Redskins First Cuts Thread

I would think a trade between the Lions and Skins would be forthcoming for Hightower wouldn't be totally out of the league of possibilities. The Lions are in dire need of a bona fide starting RB. Kevin Smith isn't going to get the job done as Jahvid Best is pretty much a bust. I wonder what kind of draft picks we could get. Maybe a 2nd or 3rd rounder(s)?

Re: Official Redskins First Cuts Thread

Hightower is less than a year back from his injury, Helu could be looking at IR, and that leaves us with Royster and a rookie. Why would we trade a back? A high pick for Hightower? Pass the J.

He won't automatically revert but I believe that we could choose to PS him in a few days if still unclaimed.

Hightower looked pretty quick to me while he was in the game. Would shock me if the Skins cut or traded him. Now, if only they would "cut" these hideous mustard color pants and never bring them back.....

I think we would be lucky to get a fourth for hightower. Not that i thinks this trade is going to happen.

If the Lions make it worth our while why not? It all depends on Roy of course, but damn the Lions are in dire straights. A couple second rounders might be worth it.

The Lions have no backs Punch, I mean no backs. Kevin Smith isn't starting caliber, and hasn't been for awhile now. Best is a bust. The HT trade would be a gamble with Roy being hurt and maybe IR bound, but I think we could get at least a couple mid rounders for him, maybe at least one second rounder. Lions are not going to get to the promised land if opposing defenses can just concentrate on stopping the passing game.

Best isnt a bust, he just has serious concussion issues. When hes out there hes pretty explosive, especially in the passing game.

You bite your tongue. Those pants are a national treasure.

Oh i am not denying that the lions need a back but to give up a second rounder for a guy who just saw his first action in almost a year would be - well stupid. Plus as you yourself pointed out helu is injured and royster probably cant shoulder a real heavy load. That leaves us with alfred morris who i love but im not pinning my hopes on him just yet. It doesnt make sense from either side. If helu was a go than i could see the lions offering up like a fifth and seventh for hightower.

I'd love to see Cooley, Moss for a quality RT or something like that...we need players, not picks. And I read some article suggesting that Cedric Griffin is likely going to stay because Barnes is out...boy I sure hope that isn't true...he has sucked bad

Redskins trade CB Kevin Barnes to Lions [this post has been updated] - The Insider - The Washington Post

Barnes, who served as the teamís third cornerback last season, recording 26 tackles, two interceptions and four pass breakups in 15 games, was competing for the same role this season. But he apparently lost that position battle to seven-year veteran Cedric Griffin, who signed as a free agent during the offseason.
