Rolle Signed?

www.profootballcentral.com

They are reporting that we have agreed to terms with Samari Rolle. So it looks like after 1.5 days of FA, our goal of just re-signing Pierce and Smoot is out the window.

The only good news is, we have a bit more money than we would have had re-signing them both. What does anyone think about the Rolle signing (if it is completed) and what should we do with any more money we have?

I am thinking a solid run at Marcus Pollard might be in the cards. He is a perfect fit for the Redskins offense. He could play the next two years, then Royal could step in full-time and we would be set at TE for years. Also, I wouldn't mind it one bit if we went after Chike Okeafor. He would upgrade that 4 man rush in a hurry.

Re: Rolle Signed?

If the Rolle deal is true, I'd like to know the terms of the deal

Re: Rolle Signed?

Yeah I definitely would as well. Apparently they haven't been disclosed the details yet. This is the only source I have heard confirming the signing yet, and so I don't know if I would accept it as gospel.

Re: Rolle Signed?

I'm just curious, Boss, why no Okeafor?

Re: Rolle Signed?

If this is true, and the deal goes through:

1. Draft Williamson in the 1st round
2. Sign Marcus Pollard
3. Draft another Guard/Center in the 3rd round, which would solidify the left side of the line.

We're set on offense.

On defense:
1. Try and sign either Reggie Hayward or Chike
2. Still need a replacement for Pierce - We probably don't have the cap room to sign Ed Hartwell

Re: Rolle Signed?

Re: Rolle Signed?

seems strange to think that pro football central has a foot up on ESPN, and just about any other publication in the free world

and would Rolle sign without visiting the Skins?

I've thought this too, but ESPN is virtually last in actually posting signings. I think this is because they are held to higher standards than places such as profootballcentral, and they can't afford to post incorrect material, so they wait until everything is official and signed. Their rumor central does list the Skins as big players for Rolle, though. That said, I won't consider it a done deal until someone else confirms.

Re: Rolle Signed?

Okeafor is definitely a little weak against the run, but he has 8 and 8.5 sacks in his last two years with Seattle. I was only thinking him because Reggie Hayward has signed with the Jags and the Skins need an edge rusher. Cody is good, but he would be unable to pressure off the edge. Now someone like Shawne Merriman? He would be awesome pressuring the QB. If Williams isn't there at 9, I think we should think long and hard about drafting Merriman, if he's even there.

Re: Rolle Signed?

Merriman is an outside linebacker. If I remember correctly he's even smaller than Freeney who is tiny by DE standards. We have the OLB positioned filled to the brim.

Re: Rolle Signed?

my thought on mentioned ESPN by name was for that exact purpose...Pastabelly wants to be right about this...and to still call the Skins the main suitor for Rolle, when neither side has met, and the Post reporting those as false rumors, i figure that his article is all but written, sitting in the web director's inbox, with PRINT WHEN THE RED PHONE FLASHES in the subject, and will be posted post haste.

if a deal was imminent, someone would have talked about it this morning over the wires...but there was nothing. he visted KC late yesterday...and with all the resources these guys have these days, someone would have seen Redskins One picking Rolle up in KC if this was true...

Re: Rolle Signed?

Merriman is a 3-4 LEO guy...can be a 3rd down pass rusher, as well as an OLB. he is definitely best suited for a 3-4, but would work in a 4-3, but not as a DE...

he's 6'4", 255 i believe...

He's actually bigger than Freeney and the remarkable thing about him is that he carries 275 and looks like he is 255. In other words, he could put on another 15 lbs. easily, and be bigger than Peppers. He really won't play OLB in a 4-3 set. He doesn't have nearly the cover skills necessary. His best fit is as the rush LB in the 3-4, but many, including myself, think he would be more than fit to play DE in a 4-3.
