I'm not either but I understand what you're saying. Orakpo is a good pass rusher, and his bull rush is effective, but I feel that's his only move, and if the tackle he's going up against is good against it then he's pretty limited. It's better than nothing but I feel the elite rushers have a wide array of moves they can use to get past the tackle, i.e. the bullrush, the rip, the club, spin move, etc.

We keep both Rob J. and Brian Orakpo next season. We sign Rob to a 3 year deal and Rak is still under contract. Rak has to prove he can stay healthy a full season. Rak has to be looking at the way Rob J. has played and needs to step us his game for next season. We need good back ups at the OLB positions. The Redskins will keep Jackson he has shown us his value to the team.

I know it's been said before but Jackson and Rak are such different types of players it's hard to compare. I do think Rak is the better every down player between the two and is better at sealing the corner and stopping the run. He also gets held a lot more and as the defense improves he'll get more of those calls. The two do such different things. IMO, a defense with both is much better and if Haslett comes back he should come up with good ways to use both.
As for affording both, unless the year finishes with a SB victory and Jackson gets a couple picks while winning the SB MVP causing the Raiders to throw $6 million a season at him, my guess is he'll re-sign before FA starts.
