I doubt this happens. Plus, our WR corp is pretty full already.

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois

Well, if he is cut, I think he would be an excellent addition on the cheap. He excelled under Shanny and, with Moss getting long in the tooth, would be someone who could step into the slot receiver position. I think he certainly has the ability to challenge Briscoe or Robinson for the 5th/6th WR slot. As with everything this year, much is dependent on the how he would affect the cap numbers.

Im pretty sure Royal will be a Redskin within the hour of being cut from the Chargers. If this was to happen

Can't hurt to bring him in on the cheap for a look.

He was stupid to go to San Diego last year.

Well you need at least 5 active, usually 6 on the roster.

You kinda have to think about the future as well with the cheap acquisition of a player like Royal. Moss is gone at the end of the season, Royal could slide into his most effective position at the slot. Also kick return experience, another weakness of ours. Back up slot receiver is a need and getting Royal on the cheap would be a win imo.

and the downside of bringing him in is what exactly?

let's say a WR gets hurt like garcon did last year. wouldn't royal be a better injury replacement than briscoe?

i sure think so.

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois

Briscoe was absolutely terrible last year. He had the drops all season. One of the UDFAs is an upgrade over that guy.

I am still shocked he even has a roster spot.

And to answer your question, if Garçon goes down, (and he did last year) Briscoe still didn't 'play' other than serve as a decoy. You guys are liking Royal to a stud fantasy player but, the truth is he's no better than Moss, Garçon, or Morgan given the same opportunities.
If one of the receivers goes down, how is putting Royal in the game going to mess with chemistry more than putting Briscoe in? Its not like Briscoe is getting tons of reps, as you said, he didnt even play when the injuries happened. Well, then there is no chemistry to mess up when it comes to Briscoe.

If you have the opportunity to upgrade the team without a huge salary cap hit, then you do it.

This all may be a mute point anyways since there is a chance we keep 4 TE's this year. Meaning Briscoe may already be replaced by Jordan Reed.

VC brought in high profile names at high cost, Shanallen has brought many medium level players and let them compete, that's how you build team chemistry.

#Redskins observations from OTA's : Glimpse of the (near?) future - Several times, saw Amerson at RCB, Thomas/Rambo at S, R. Crawford @ LCB.

#Redskins observations from OTA's : A few times saw #Redskins use this alignment in nickel. DHall at LCB, Crawford at RCB w/ EJ Biggers-slot

#Redskins observations from OTA's - Rookies David Amerson and Bacarri Rambo each had a INT against Rex Grossman. Rambo was at FS for his.

#Redskins observations from OTA's : After throwing two straight picks, Rex dialed up a long ball to Aldrick Robinson beating Amerson/Gomes.

#Redskins observations from OTA's - RB Jawan Jamison had a nice "2nd level wiggle" on 1 run (@John_Keim) & did nice job in pass pro mirror.
------

So what I gather from that (of course its way to early to start coming to conclusions)

- Amerson is looking just like he did in college: great coverage one play, beat the next.

- Phillip Thomas is getting burned by Niles Paul. Not helping his case with me saying he doesn't have the speed to play in the NFL.

- Rambo looking like a good/great pick (as a lot of us had thought and hoped)

- Skins are using Biggers at the Slot, although I read (I think in PFF) that he is a lot better outside than in the slot. Interesting.

- Jawan Jamison getting attention already. I can think back to this time last year and Chris Russell was saying noticeable things about a guy named Alfred Morris.. I could easily see him & Thompson both on the roster and Royster and Helu gone.
Even though Niles Paul runs a 4.5. Yeah one play in practice isn't gonna tell me that he doesn't have the "speed" to play in the NFL.
