I just hope that he doesn't take the spot of a young guy in the secondary with potential and then get suspended again for whatever.

Per the DE sitz, with both Cofield and Baker able to backup there I think we're in pretty good shape. Jenkins is still the X factor on the line as Bown and Cofield are solid.

only if you want to give him a backloaded/high bonus vinny type contract, which we've been steering away from lately.

Not at all. You only need to have the first year with a lower number. A lot of the contracts tend to have a lower first year salary anyways due to bonus money being paid early, even from Shanny and Allen. Look at Garcons contract. 2.1 mil base salary last year with a cap hit of 4.7 mil, 5.6 mil base salary this year with a cap hit of 8.2 mil. Most teams do it that way. They escalate the annual salary so that if they cut the player before they finish the contract, they are paying out less than if they had the annual salary stayed the same through every year.

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

So I stopped off at the grocery store today after work to pick up a couple of the NFL Season Preview magazines. I decided to get two (Lindys and Sporting News) and was going to get Pro Football Weekly's (which is out of business, yet had the magazine out so this might be their last one) magazine. I went to skim through it and saw that they had the Redskins finishing 3rd in the division. I immediately put it down saying to myself "now I know why you all went out of business," and bought the other two.

I just started reading through the other two. Lindys has us finishing 2nd (which is respectable/more understandable) saying that basically they didn't pick us first because they thought we had too much what ifs regarding RG3s health. And who did they have finishing 1st? The frickin' cowboys who just got a new defense, got beat by us twice last year, and have Romo as their QB.

Then I looked through the Sporting News Magazine. Sporting News has us finishing 4th in the NFC East, and has us as the 23rd best team in the NFL. Their reasoning is something along the lines of "theres a lot of change in the NFCE and new champions from year to year with some years the winner finishes last, and with RG3s injury it doesn't make our case better."

Now sure some of these magazines were made almost a month ago, but still it was almost 2 months ago that RG3 was already being talked about being ready for the first game of the season.

A few other things to mention about the magazines:

- Sporting News gave our draft a D, and failed to even mention Rambo, or Reeds names.

- Both magazines said very good things about our DL; I, along with others here last year, didn't think they were that great, just OK/Solid.

- To go on about this now even more meaningless magazines, Sporting News had the Giants winning the NFCE (1), Lindy's had them finishing dead last (4)..

- A "scout from another team" said that RG3 isn't "a progression-type QB...when he's in the gun, when he has to read defenses, he has a long ways to go."

- both magazines have the Broncos reaching the super bowl

- EJ Biggers is rated by Lindy's as the 5th best NB in the NFL (they do a position by position ranking, ie No. 1 CB's, No. 2 CB's, NBs)

Apparantly it does include blogs such as the Bog. I got a notice this morning when I tried to read an article on the Bog that I've already used my 20 free articles for the month.

Balancing risk vs. reward with RG3 | Comcast SportsNet Washington

This article says what a lot of us have been saying for a while. The read option doesn't expose RG3 to injury; rather scrambling is the problem. This next season, I hope RG3 utilizes the sideline more instead of taking the hits.

Amerson, hall, Wilson, Biggers, Crawford, 6th?

Thomas, Merriweather

Rambo, Jackson, Pugh (PS)

Gomes gone who else or will we even keep 8 defensive backs? Any one have any idea how that plays out?

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

Cult - I'm kinda surprised by the comments and predictions in the magazines. Based on the progress of healing, Griffin isn't going to miss that many games. Granted, we haven't seen enough of Cousins yet to determine that he actually is a starting QB material but the way we ended the season (not counting Seattle game), the team started to gel together. Enough to help Cousins to win games. If Cousins played bad at the Browns game then I would be worried but after that game and how he rallied at ending of the Baltimore game, I'm convinced he can win us some games.

Based on last season, our defense wasn't good so I guess it kind of make sense to at least assume that the defense won't improve much. It doesn't to me but I could see why some people would think that. I love the idea of flying under radar so if many people actually believe that then I'm happy.

I looked at two mags and both had us 4th in the division, I was shocked and honestly don't get it. I just hope the Skins put their stamp on the division this year and prove them all wrong.
