All I meant was I could see us moving on in terms of a cap related move. I know Shanny loves him and he's a great fit in this offense, so I also wouldn't be surprised if they make something work with him. Tough to tell right now where we're heading until we start making some cap moves.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

More concerned about Right Tackle than rather if Kory L stays or not. Gettis, McRib, or Hurt can step in and play at Guard. Monty and Chester had beast years, not concerned about the interior.

I'd imagine we bring back Polumbus on a cheap deal and let him battle it out with Compton and/or a rookie RT.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

Heard Chris Russell on ESPN 980 yesterday. He had a couple intersting points:

- It's unlikely we franchise Davis again. Coming off the injury and suspension, the franchise tag amount is probably too high. He suspects they let Davis test out the FA market, then decide if they want to bring him back.

- In general terms he thinks it will be a very quiet offseason, partly due to the cap penalty. His thinking was they might take a small step back this year, with the idea of taking 2 or 3 steps forward in 2014.

I don't have a problem with a quiet offseason. After all we did win 10 games and the division. Get healthy and build off that and add a couple of new pieces.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

The Skins really don't have much cap space this year, but it would be nice if they can sign a free safety like Jairus Byrd or Dashon Goldson.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

Of our own free agents, I hope we at least resign Lich, Sundberg, Alexander, Rocca, Davis, and Young.

Good point, I forgot about TJax, he looked good last preseason.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

I hope we keep Fred, but I wouldn't be shocked if we let him walk. Just wouldn't shock me. Wouldn't be shocked if we cut Adam Carriker either.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

A good point was made on Sirius XM NFL Radio the other morning. With the salary cap stagnant, big name players are still going to be outdoing each other for contracts, where is the money going to come from? The middle man of the NFL. Middle tier players aren't going to get the money they got in past years IMO because of this. Add onto this lack of payday for free agents the fact that although there is not top tier talent in the draft, many positions are very deep. TE for example. I can see Davis trying to see what he can get, not get very good offers because teams can't afford it or want to draft a cheap rookie instead in a deep class. If Davis is not happy with what he finds, which I don't think he will be, I see him resigning with us. That's not even mentioning the injury that will scare some teams away. Maybe I'm just talking myself into keeping him. I hope get him back though.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

Is there a Fred Davis in this year's draft? A second round tender for under 2M doesn't seem like a ton of money for a player in this league: Jackson is worth it.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

I dont see a big market for Fred and coming off knee surgery we have leverage for a good deal. I dont think it will be for huge money, but a nice raise. I think its a no brainer to want to keep a top 10 TE.

You say there is no big market for him but in the same breath say he is a top ten TE????? In league were the TE position is at all time high.

Come on Bro.
