Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

Rak is in his last year of his current deal, so if he has a good year we can't trade him.

Yes sir, JJ was starting to show a little of his pre-ACL skills towards the end of last season.
With Carricker, Jenkins, S. Bowen, along with Golston, Doug Worthington and late season practice squad signing Phillip Merlling we are pretty big and deep at DE. I like the big kid Worthington, in the 6 games Worthington was active he was not pushed around and held his own. If he can continue to improve I would not be shocked to see Golston the odd man out of this group.

Wr is another position a possible return to health will hopefully show up well on the stat sheet in 2013. Morgan and Hankerson played injured most of last season. They still flashed some skill at times. Aldrick Robinson also was dinged and he looks promising as well. This is a good young group.

I think BHA said trade mid-season. Anything wrong with that?

It's just not going to happen but it doesn't hurt to dream I guess.

Hmmmmm it could be a smart preemptive move. Not sure how Orakpo feels about playing out of position so to speak, but per his agent and contract talks the following year they'd be pretty smart to "market" Rak as a premier 4-3 DE pass rusher who's been poorly utilized. And then we see a 1st round pick just walk away without getting anything, let alone pretty underwhelming production during his time here.

A "forced" mid-season trade, especially if a 4-3 defense is desperate, might be the smartest move even if all we can get is say a 3rd round pick.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

Like I said, keep dreaming.

We're not going to trade our best pass rusher mid season if he's having a good enough year to warrant a high pick.

Aren't you talking about trading him during the season?

I don't understand the concept of trading away a key player during the season and hurting yourself in the process.

Guys that average nearly 10 sacks a year don't grow on trees.

Right, but if he indeed has a solid 2013 campaign, becoming a FA after the season, we'll face a bidding war. And again if his agent is smart they'll market Rak as a player poorly utilized, which is probably true i.e. capable of Jared Allen type production out of the 4-3...and then we get squat, right?

Trade him mid-season and at least get something. My assumption here is Rak probably won't be on our roster beyond this year regardless and isn't going to be the difference between winning a Lombardi.

Trade Rak for a 3rd round pick? Madness.

2 x probowler and he has been injured the last 2 year previous years with the same injury. So nothing been wrong, he's been solid.

I think he's on the cusp of one of those mid teen sack total years and with Kerrigan, Jarvis Jenkins, AC, all healthy our D-Line is set.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

If you are really counting on Rob Jackson to start 16 games and be efficient those games, I think you will be disappointed. I like Rob Jackson, but he seems like one of those players that looks good for a couple of games and then when he actually has to start for an entire year, people will forget about him. Making the flashy play every once in a while does not mean you are a solid starter. I think of Rob Jackson as Jarret Johnson from the Chargers. On the Ravens he looked good when he played, the Chargers then got him started him for the majority of his season and then you never hear from him again. Good teams have a lot of players like Rob Jackson.
Look at what happened to the defense without Orakpo before you start thinking about replacing him. Kerrigan was taken out and completely disappeared for a lot of games. Jenkins is coming along but still not sure what to expect from him especially with his knee. If you trade Orakpo there will be no pass rush, just like last year. The DLine and outside linebacker need to improve in terms of talent, not to trade away its most talented player. Redskins need to look at this position group as well as something they need to improve. If they do not then people will then blame the DB's for the fact QB's have 7 seconds to throw the ball. There were times last year where I felt the QB could hold the ball for as long as he wanted and the Skins still would not get him. I hope Orakpo comes healthy and plays to form, because if he doesn't, based on last year, it will be a long year for the DB's and the defense.
