Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

Does anyone think that we can sign Ward or Mitchell for under 6.5 mil? If so, I don't see any reason why we can't add Ward and Talib.

How is a proven dynamic PR/KR a luxury of luxuries. Sproles wasn't cut for performance, he was a cap hell casualty, and if he came here (at around what his contract would have been this year) it would be a solid move by the Skins FO.

Remember how bad our ST's were? and a dynamic screen game plays to Griffin's strengths, just mixing those with Garcon's screens would force the defense to play the whole field.

And we all know Gruden made good use of 2 RBs in Cincy, so I expect Helu to have the same or even more success next year. Sproles is better, but there's not a big gap between the two.

That being said, I'd still like to see Sproles here, mostly for the KR\PR side of him. We would need to be careful how much we used him offensively because Morris does better when he's heavily involved in the offense, and Helu already takes enough snaps away.

I like Helu as the primary backup, but Sproles is a much better 3rd down back and receiver out of the backfield. I'm not choosing between the two.

Exactly. Getting weapons for RGIII is a definite need.

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

I think we should definitely take a look at Roger Saffold and Zane Beadles. Add those two to the right side, draft a center, and BOOM, offensive line is no longer the liability it once was. Just worry about the price Saffold might command, and the Rams let him go to save some cap space....

Mitchell will be under $6.5... he has only started 1 year, and misses lots of tackles

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

Sproles is a offensive weapon as a receiver and can return punts. He would upgrade our offense..

Ward no. Mitchell yes. Mitchell and Talib would transform our secondary.

agreed I didn't get the negatives around him, and I hope that he proves the Skins did the right thing.

So you have no confidence that Thompson will be able to grow into this role? That remains to be seen. But this has been the problem around here, not having the ability to develop our own players, or not doing it enough.
