Re: Jamaal Brown Has Surgery..Again.

3rd round pick for a player coming off major injury? Yeah that's a pretty bad gamble imo and then to pay him? 2 extremely poor decisions. But oh well at this point, we obviously moved on.

Re: Jamaal Brown Has Surgery..Again.

It's easy to say from the outside that it was a bad decision, and in hindsight too of course. Obviously the team doctors would have reviewed all of his medicals and determined his medical risk was worth the shot. Plenty of guys come back from injury to regain their form.

Its a gamble either way. That 3rd round pick coulda been a developed Right Tackle by now, but you cant win them all.

The trade was indeed a gamble, but had he stayed healthy and performed at a high level, he would be lauded as a genius. You guys are only saying so due to hindsight.


That said, this is why you don't follow one mistake with another. Once the got injured while here on the Skins, Mike should have corrected the mistake and moved onto something else. Nope, he followed a mistake with another mistake of resigning him. You can forgive one mistake, but making two mistakes with the same person. Not so much.

Yup. Other teams, including the Saints, thought he would return to form. And if he had returned to form, we would have one heck of an OL right now.

There are lots of hindsight arguments in this thread.

Saints ended up drafting Martez Wilson with the pick we sent them

Re: Jamaal Brown Has Surgery..Again.

The hell with it. It's time to move on and it's time for the Redskins to give Jammal Brown a injury settlement and cut their ties with him. Great player, but he was a player who has landed on IR the last three years. I don't even think Vinny Cerrato would have made this trade for him. But Cerratto was dumb enough to draft Malcolm Kelly after team physicians advised him not to.

Re: Jamaal Brown Has Surgery..Again.

Of course we need our draft picks. How are we going to build a solid team without draft picks?

Re: Jamaal Brown Has Surgery..Again.

Financial implications of Jammal Brown’s contract are weighed - Washington Times

Posted before but worth tossing up again, regarding his contract implications

I think it does. Trading a high draft pick for an older player coming off an injury is not smart. Plus they moved him from LT to RT. Yeah hindsight is 20/20 but to me this is just using common sense.

Yup. Trading for a player one year removed from the pro-bowl was not a terrible move. At the time, I was good with it and actually pretty happy about it. Had it panned out, we would have been set at the tackle position for years to come.

Resigning him? That one boggled me.

Well Ridley's a pretty damn good player on one of the best teams in the NFL. I'd take him over Brown.
