Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

Schefter just posted that there's essentially a bidding war between us and Cleveland for Fred.

I'm nervous.

One league source familiar with thinking of Washington free-agent TE Fred Davis said Redskins and Browns "are serious about signing him."

Hopefully we'll beat them out for Davis like we did for Griffin. New owner though, so we'll see if he's as shy with the trigger as the last guy.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

I can't see anything other than money and returning to his hometown as being reasons to sign with CLE.

This had to do with who signed first.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

He continued: ďI even asked Bruce why [the offer] changed, and he said, ĎItís because of the cap,í and I got emotional, because this is home. I love the fans, I love the team and the coaches and the guys in that locker room, and the city. But, Godís moving me in a different direction, and itís the Cardinals. Hopefully, Iíll be able to carry over the same type of hard work and play that I had here, and bring it there. But it was definitely hard. It just didnít add up for me to stay. But I know, in my heart of hearts, if it wasnít for the cap, I would've been here.Ē

This is an exert from an article in the Washington Post.

Zo wanted to come back, we wanted him back, the cap penalty cost us and he knows it. No hard feelings and what ever was written before about him being upset with the organization was just looking for press. I wish the guy the best.

If Cleveland wants him they will get him, they have a lot of cap freedom and are poised to make some big moves.

Yup. If we lose Fred, its not the worst thing in the world. We had a potent offense without him for much of last year. Given all our other needs, TE is not a position worth breaking the bank for, especially not one coming of a major injury and one mistake away from a 1 year suspension.

We can get buy with paulsen and a cheaper, pass catching TE this year. Next year, we'll have plenty of money to splurge on"non-essential but "nice to have" guys like Davis.

Former second rounder who has had some shoulder problems but reported to play well when healthy.
I think this may be a decent signing.

If I'm a TE, I'll take Weeden. That dude needs to dump off the ball a lot more. More catches. More stats.

When it comes down to it, it's mainly a money issue.
