Aldrick needs to step it up too imo. I think its make or break for both, in fact both may not make it through cuts if they dont.

I'm not sure anyone's willing to go that far. Robinson is the fastest player on the team and Hank has been productive but not consistent. Hankerson had 3 fewer catches and 30 fewer yards than Moss (but 5 fewer TD). If we add someone via the draft they will probably replace 2012 preseason man-crush Desmond Briscoe on the 53.

Aldrick could and probably should be a returner this year.

Banks is gone (should be) and Crawford might be seeing time on the field at nickel if we don't draft a CB who can step up, so why risk a thin secondary on punt returns?

Yes he did, could be our new slot WR when Santana hangs it up and wouldn't cause us to move up like I think Justin Hunter would.

That would be my guess.
I'd replace Woods with Bailey

And Hankerson absolutely needs to step it up

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

Not Redskins thankfully, but the NFL offseason thread got locked. Rolando McClain strikes AGAIN!



Rolando McClain - Baltimore Ravens - 2013 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com


Ravens ILB Rolando McClain was arrested Sunday evening in Decatur (AL) for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Eyewitnesses say police ordered McClain and several others to leave Pines Park after a large crowd had gathered. McClain refused and began "cursing" at officers, before being handcuffed, and bailing out of jail shortly thereafter. McClain has now been arrested three times in his hometown of Decatur since 2011. He needs to stop going back there for the sake of his livelihood, and perhaps his personal safety. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome smartly guaranteed no portion of McClain's one-year, $700,000 contract. He will be released shortly. Apr 21 - 11:30 PM
Source: WHNT-TV Huntsville

-------------------------

The Ravens are "seeking more facts" on ILB Rolando McClain's latest arrest.
"The only information we have at this time is from media reports," said a team spokesman. That implies they've yet to speak with the mercurial linebacker, who was signed just 12 days ago. There are very few scenarios in which McClain keeps his roster spot. He won't find a third chance easy to come by. Apr 22 - 9:10 AM
Source: Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter


-------------------------


Ravens ILB Rolando McClain disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges reportedly arose after McClain said "(expletive) the police" as he walked by an officer, and "tried to jerk his arms away twice" as he was handcuffed.
We're guessing "(expletive) the police" wasn't what the Ravens had in mind for a comeback credo when they gave McClain a second chance. Hopelessly immature and out of his depth as a professional, McClain is leaving a league that loves redemption stories little choice but to give up on him. Apr 22 - 10:27 AM

Huh? We're gonna draft a WR now? If that's the case, and RT remains an issue this season you have to question the FO structure. And wonder if Vinnie is still in the building.

Insane.

I dont the think the Tackle prospects are as strong as the WR, Safety, and Cornerback positions.

I think they answered the Tackle position in FA.

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

Also, helping the Redskins, the Victor Cruz situation is getting interesting...

Time running out on Cruz's free agency | New York Daily News

Cliff notes:

*Giants offer Cruz $7 million, he declines and wants $10-11 million.

*Cruz gets a new agent, Jay-Z...who is pushing for a contract like Dwayne Bowe's (5 yr/$56 million).

*Other option is a $2.879 one-year tender to stay with Giants another season.

*Cruz did not sign an offer sheet with another team prior to 04/19 midnight deadline, meaning no other team wants to make him an offer.

*Giants can reduce Cruz's one-year, $2.879 million tender to $630,000 if he doesn't sign a contract by July 17.

*Giants GM Reese says he's not sure Cruz will report to team by Week 1. If Cruz holds out past Week 10, he loses a year of NFL accrued experience and will be an RFA again...and they'll repeat all of this mess in 2014.

“Victor is not here. He is a free agent. He is exercising all of his options, and we will see where it goes,” Reese said. “I don’t assume anything. We’ll see. I can tell you this: When we get ready to play, when the season starts, we will have some good players out there. I’m not sure if Victor will be there or not. But I don’t assume anything.”

They're not going to draft an RT just to draft an RT

I'd take a random rookie over Trueblood though.

Nfldraftscout has come out with their top 90 RBs in the NFL.

Royster came in at 73. Alfred came in at 11.

They also came out with their final mock draft and have us taking:


Matt Elam S
Dwayne Gratz CB
Nico Johnson ILB
JC Tretter OG
Lavar Edwards OLB
Jakar Hamilton S
Anthony McCloud NT

They signed 3 RT (Polumbus, Pashos, Trueblood) and have 2 players they drafted in the past 2 years (Hurt, Compton) that all are candidates at RT. This one is an example where the staff/FO clearly has a different opinion and vision of need regarding this position and the 2013 draft.

WR is still an issue on this team. Basically the future (2014 and beyond) of this position is Garçon and Hankerson. That's it. To ignore it in the draft is irresponsible. Also, using the BPA philosophy, especially if there is a run on secondary players in the 1st/2nd, WR may be the best value.
