If they bring him in, he'll be the 4th back behind our current three.

And especially since there's talk of bringing Hightower later in the season when he's healthier. No one knows if Hightower will be claimed by someone else, I highly doubted at this stage of his health status.

Re: Official Redskins Final Cuts Thread

I don't know how I feel about bringing him in, honestly I was of the mind set that they needed to keep four RBs since there always seems to be a decent amount of injuries to Shanny's backs.

Hightower to me is the guy I want, but I would take Slaton if they don't feel TH can get back at it this year.

That and we were talking about getting him for a guy we were going to cut anyway. Free player with some upside.

Re: Official Redskins Final Cuts Thread

Slaton is better then any back we have atm. People are on the Morris train right now but the guy is running over 2nd teamers and the Colts. Who couldnt stop my high school team from scoring last year. Helu should be the starter is we dont end up getting Slaton. Hes our best back, only thing is... People say he has durability issues.

If he was so good why is he waiting for his 3rd team? He is no Darren Sproles.

His two banged up achillies tendons and his injuries last year say he's got durability issues.

Of course Slaton may very well be a flash in the pan. He had his own injuries if memory serves me correctly and he certainly hasn't done anything recently.

That said he also might have been Pushed out of the ideal system for his skills by a guy called Arian Foster.

So what I'm saying is: the guy might make a nice insurance back who has at least some plausible possibility of returning to a form that would make him pro bowl RB. Stranger things have happened... we are talking about Football after all.

I said he's the best back THE REDSKINS would have. Not in the league. Helu struggles to beat out Royster and another rookie RB. The only RB out of the 4 to do anything productive would be Slaton, and he was beat out by one of the best RB in the NFL at the moment. Doesn't mean he wouldn't do great things here.

Bush is better then Slaton as well, but it still doesn't change the fact that Slaton would be better then anything we have at the moment. There is a reason Kyle want's to trade for him even though we are so "deep" at RB. Just saying.

Morris played against the Bears first team and looked good.

Re: Official Redskins Final Cuts Thread

This is kinda nitpicking because I know they have to work on building at every position, and I don't know* what they try to do and it just falls through....

I feel like the front office should quit worrying so much about stockpiling RBs, and get more results on bringing in secondary and OL that could start for us. Even though they're probably working on that.


*(not like SS does (thank you!) let alone what's happening in Allen and Shanny's offices)

Re: Official Redskins Final Cuts Thread

My guess would be Kyle S. while at Houston coached Slaten who as a rookie rushed for over 1,200 yds and almost 5 yds/carry . I think we have a nice group of backs either way !

No. They could bring Reggie Bush over here and he still wouldn't be a better back than the ones we have. He'd be a better 3rd down back, but that's about it. Slaton is barely hanging onto a roster spot for a reason.

I'd sure as hell take Reggie Bush.

Slaton, meh. Good depth.
