That said, we have to think about who'd we replace him with. If we replaced him with a rookie, it would cost, at minimum, $405,000. Minimum for a 3 year veteran would be $630,000. Ultimately, cutting/replacing helu would result in minimal savings or actually be more expensive. The ideal solution would be for Helu to come back healthy and do what we drafted him to do.
Personally, I think the team is unsure if he will be able to come back 100% or come back on time. I also thought there was something wrong with Royster as well?

I'd probably cut Helu and take a chance on drafting someone fast/edge runner in the 6th round again. Otherwise the radio was talking about how the team could restructure some other players to get more CAP space to pick up another player if need be.

Word to the turd. Can't bank on Helu, and I loved that kids potential. Morris and Bush duo would be deadly. Do it.

Obviously that's partly why he's a ball hawk, and the move to safety will maximize his skill set.

It's the smart move for the Skins IMO. Irresponsible to count on a 2nd/3rd round draft pick to have the football IQ to play FS well. We can look at other FAs, but they're either gonna command more than Hall or be one year stop gaps. And, again our defense is unique. Hall knows it inside and out.
Almost every defense in the NFL is unique. Halls biggest problem is he bites on plays and lets players behind him... And hall got dragged by jake delhome, I will never forget that. He's a good tackler for a corner, but for a safety he's below average and running backs and tight ends would drag him. I think I would draft a safety who played safety in college and has experience playing safety and understands he can't let someone behind him. So agree to disagree. I don't see hall playing safety all that well, especially with how inconsistent he is and how often he gets beat by average receivers

I am actually really intrigued with that combo. With the pistol read-option you could have a million combinations of routes and runs that would keep the defense on their heels. I like it.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

I'm not worried about the RB position. MS is known for being able to pick up what he needs in a RB in the draft.

A RT and another WR and TE is what I'm concerned about. The Tackle from the Browns might fix one spot. If Davis stays healthy then we have another spot fixed plus I thought the team picked up a TE right after our season ended (maybe PS player).

That was the most logical destination. I bet he'll do well there.

RB is an issue for us though. The news on Helu continues to look bleak. Royster is nothing special.

Luckily our HC has arguably the best eye for RB talent in the game. Outside of Bush I preferred we draft a guy.

I traveled to Carolina for that game. Haven't had confidence in him as a tackler since. He had a great second half of the season, and I'm worried who we are going to get to replace him at CB, but to move him to safety would be a nightmare. Banks could do just as well in run support.

What about Leon Washington? He just got cut. I'm sure he won't command much money.

I trust Mike to make that call i.e. Washington > or < than draft prospect. But sure.

Royster will probably hang around. I remember Smoot saying something about coaches really liking him.

I've never taken to Royster as I've always thought he wasn't a hard nor fast runner.
