Re: 2013 Free Agents

It looks like one of our Free Agent targets could be staying put:

Re: 2013 Free Agents

Reading that Eric Winston can be signed as early as this evening, because he was cut.

What are people's opinion on him?

-He's obviously a fit for the scheme and can play at a high level, but does he still have the desire?

-I believe he's 30 now, so that comes into play too.

-What are the teams feelings on Tom straight outta Compton and Polumbus? Polumbus was descent in run support, but god awful in pass-pro, is that something that can be improved upon this offseason, or is he just too slow?

Personally I think I would steer clear, and just draft another T in the mid rounds to push the current RTs.

Winston is legit, Compton is coming along but probably not a starter, Polumbus needs to go now. Winston is gonna be a good value starter

I want him as our RT, but that doesnt mean that we can afford him. To me, it depends on the cuts that can be made without hurting the team. Sure we can cut DHall and have the space to sign him, but does that leave us enough to get the draft class signed as well as other depth. If we have to cut to deep to make it happen, then dont pursue him.

As for Compton and Polumbus. We have to move on from Polumbus. He is bad in pass protection, and that forces RG3 to take off running (both if his injuries happened on a scramble). Polumbus will never be good at pass protection. He is very tall, and unfortunately plays very tall. DE's can almost at will get underneath his pads and push him back. That forces him to plant hard and brace for those hits, which makes the speed rush effective. Unless Kyle plans on helping him out (which I doubt) then we need a better pass blocking RT. Can Compton fit that bill? I have heard good things about him, but would still like another legitimate RT to push him for the job.

I don't know where you get value starter from? He's going to get top 5 RT money. That's not value as I see it. That being said, I would love to find a way to still get him in a Skins uniform. He was interviewed on Sirius XM NFL Radio this morning and made it sound like money will still be a big factor but looking at a team that can contend will be important too. Climb on the RGIII express Mr. Winston.

Don't forget to tweet to him about joining the skins!!

Re: 2013 Free Agents

To me, the #1 personnel concern for this team and franchise is to acquire people who can contribute to protecting RGIII. We need to fix the secondary and I think we will, but RGIII is at the core of our hopes for a championship team.

With that in mind, I think the Skins are probably looking hard at Winston as well as Sebastian Vollmer and perhaps other FA's at RT. I believe that the Skins would be willing to pay a lot for a quality starter at RT regardless of their cap situation. Somebody on the current roster who they'd prefer to keep would have to go instead.

KC was a bad experience for Winston but I see no reason why he couldn't fit in well here.

I know this much: A lot of Redskins fans, including myself, are going to breathe easier once we get a legitimate RT to help protect RGIII.

value as in what he will cost vs how he will perform. He will probably out perform his cap number at RT. Rated #3 RT for the Chiefs and has already excelled in ZBS.

Ahh, I agree there. Question is, we have done no restructuring, which makes me nervous, how are we going to afford signing him? We don't even know if we have made a call to him.

Rumor: T Tony Pashos may be a Redskin in the next couple of days.

Makes more sense than Winston, at least $$ wise.

I think that's likely going to be our approach to free agency overall, the 2nd tier value types.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

Didn't Pashos turn us down, or we turned him down about 2 years ago?

Re: 2013 Free Agents

Pashos makes no sense to sign now. He will be out the entire season due to a recent surgery (about a week ago) that takes 9-10 months to heal.

He just had foot surgery and will be out 9-10 months. That would be a useless signing for 2013.
