Skins expected to sign Brown on Wed.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...2005Mar15.html

Defensive end Courtney Brown will visit the Washington Redskins today, according to two sources familiar with the plans, and the club intends to sign him before he departs Redskins Park for other scheduled visits.

Re: Skins expected to sign Brown on Wed.

I do like this news; hopefully its a good deal conract-wise. Knowing us though; its going to be a big conract. If that Moss rumor is true; I really have lost any and all faith in our front office.

Re: Skins expected to sign Brown on Wed.

how much "input" do you guys think LaVar had on this decision? Do you think they asked LA what he thought or that LaVar pushed for Brown to come here?

I dont know how much it effected the desicion; but it seems like current players on the team can have an effect on who comes here. Portis rumored ot have somthing to do with Moss/Taylor. I think Arrington proboboly pushed for him to come here; but I dont know if it was the deciding factor.

Lavar has also written and performed all of the songs the Redskins cheerleaders will be performing to next year. He's a real renaissance man!

Re: Skins expected to sign Brown on Wed.

Not a bad idea if he comes cheap. His potential outweighs his past injury problems. As long as we're not expecting him to come in and be an every down starter.

You hit the nail on the head!!! Williams likes rotation with his front 4, keeps them fresh on the field. I think that Brown will be a hugh plus to add to that rotation.

That Lavar he's something special!
Star players always have opinions and managment always asks for their views on players they bring in. Why the constant mocking of Lavar? He missed last year due to injury which is rare for him. He has brought attitude and great spped to our team. I assume since you are the great talent evaluator that only your opion is right, right?

Re: Skins expected to sign Brown on Wed.

This makes me nervous. When they intend to sign someone before they leave for other visits it probably means they're going to overpay. I mean if you get an offer you think is good enough to not even ask anyone else for I would think it means you've been overpayed. I like a multiyear deal for him but onyl a short one at a value. This does not sound like what is planned.

Yeah they always at least talk to the guys so they can feel like they are respected and their opinions matter. It doesn't even matter if they heed any advice but guys like Lavar, Ray Ray, Favre, McNabb are in the loop on big decisions.

Re: Skins expected to sign Brown on Wed.

I'm liking the idea of taking a chance on him. Like I said before, I think it will pay dividends, especially if we are constantly rotating people in and out.

Re: Skins expected to sign Brown on Wed.

We took a chance on an injury-prone Daryl Gardener and it worked out for us, if only for a year. This guy has a much better attitude.

He can't manage his own contract let alone someone else's, he also has a problem with being told where to play on the field ALA Marvin Lewis putting him at end which turn's out may be the best spot for him, and our scouting department need's his opinion on a player who has already established himself in the NFL?

What's his injury have to do with this? Unless your talking about his concusion? Then I would have to agree with you and give him a pass.


By the way what's great spped??????

And what's my opion?????

Are those medical term's for sphincter, and colon?
Sorry for the spelling errors. Not my intention to spell things wrong but I think you knew what I was talking about.

Who said anything about Lavar managing a contract negotiation? I simply said that managment always consults there prime time players before making a move. This is the reality of todays sports stars.

I will refrain from insulting you as you constantly feel the need to show that insults are the best way in a disagreement. I just do not understand why you have a thing for a player who is loved by many.
