Let's give Polumbus another shot to start the season. If he's that horrible, he could always lose the job later on.

I don't think it's that reflection, as much as we need two to stick, the starter and the backup. So get enough competition to make sure we cover depth as well. It's really just how this FO has handle every week area (on offense) that we have had.

I have said this before, I think you see Shanahan's ego more on Defense where he gets one guy, and trusts his instincts that he is the player they want, as opposed to offense, where every year we see positions that look like a bunch of mush, and pick the best from it. It's happened at RB, WR, and now RT. No defensive position, that I remember, has gotten nearly the sign a ton, and let the cream rise, as the offensive talent. I wish it would, atleast CB and safeties.

I'm actually OKAY with Polumbus coming back.
I'm with you despite the fact that I think Polumbus sux in pass pro. Given our $$$ scene, we have little choice but to add cheap talent and hope that some cream rises to the top. Besides, there is still is a long way to go before the season opener and some old vet tackles who are still good always end up in summer cuts from other teams.

Competition is good, hopefully Compton can rise up.

So lets gets this straight....We've signed 3 vetern Tackles, bringing back Hurt and a rookie who Shanny wanted in Compton last year for competition at the Tackle spot....meanwhile no signings of vetern secondary players. So that means we are happy with the weakest part of the team last year...?

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

This is probably a really dumb question so if they answer is as simple as "No, they can't do that" that's good enough for me, but could the Skins sign a FA to a 'back-loaded' deal that keeps them under the cap for this year but pushes guaranteed money into next season?

I'd have to assume not but I just figured I'd ask.

Skins avg. 4.7 yards per carry on non-quarterback carries.

Yes, they definitely can.

Signings aren't made in order of priority.

I'd say we did have one solid move. We brought back Kory L.

Who knows what will happen at RT. We do know now though that we have our entire OL returning with a couple of injury plagued veterans returing to health. Time will tell if JT or TP can replace Polumbus on the line or if we are just going to ride it out for a year till we get our space back.

Who knows.

This move has nothing to do with our ability to sign or bring in secondary help though.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

Well yeah, but it seems if we were going to bring back Tyler, especially on a 2 year deal, it would have been done sooner. Is Compton not ready to back him up?

There were two weak parts to the team last year, Secondary and RT. Bad secondary gives up TD's. Bad RT gives up injuries to RG3. A bad secondary can be fixed with cap space back next year. RG3 can only be fixed so many times by Dr Andrews.

Im all for going after RT.

Btw, what veteran CB was signing for what we got the three tackles at? Its not like we have 30 mil wrapped in cap space this year for the RT's.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

Exactly Skinzman.

These RTs all got little to no gaurenteed money (TP and JT for sure) and most likely signed vet min deals. They will probably be under the rule of 51 once the roster fills out.
