Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

Campbell was a combine hero a few years ago right?

Hasn't he pretty much been a bust?

Nothing wrong with giving him a look I guess, I'm just not seeing what there is to be excited about.

Not zero. He is a great athlete. Perhaps the Skins think he can be "coached up". That's debateable but it might be worth a try at less than $1MM. We're not exactly loaded at OL.

Blocking TE? Jumbo Package? Safety?

John Keim is always good, and he was excellent this morning on free agency:

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

Apparently some people actually trust Polumbus and Compton.



The more guys we being in that even have a chance at being an upgrade, the better.

If Campbell's career gets on track, he could be a big step up from what we had last year at the position. Also a decent fallback option if we can't sign or draft a better RT.

If we're going to address the position in the draft, we need a backup plan and I really don't want it to say POLUMBUS on its back.

Not at all, and if Campbell of all guys is getting a look then neither does the front office. I just highly doubt Campbell is a real solution.

On point as usual, can't argue with anything here really.

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

Good summary of our Day 1.


No splash, but Redskins busy as free agency starts

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

The Panthers showed that you don't need to have a secondary like the Seahawks to have a dominant defense, your front seven dominates and your back four will be just fine, so maybe that is what Washington is thinking. Not to mention we do have some young guys in our secondary, maybe they are high on one or two of these guys.

agree, especially with the points on how poorly the Defense was built...but I know people hate it, but Haynesworth alone set this organization back, BIG TIME.

The Oline stuff im less inclined to believe because Kory L, Monty and Chester were awesome the year before. Now with the a system change, it really doesnt matter who is behind them, it makes no difference because I would expect them to struggle with Jay Gruden and his different running approach. Now the Polumbus not being upgraded, there is no fucking excuse for him.

im thinking the same way. there is still some guys avail who would be an upgrade for FS, there are still some decent corners and revis out there, it may be financially easier to upgrade the front 7 instead of getting into the secondary bidding war that was day 1.

RT is the one spot i think we need to put money at for a solid/acceptable starter. that is the one spot i want to address in earnest and not wait for the draft or late preseason cut.

I can see if they are willing to let P. Thomas and Crawford recover from injury and are maybe thinking of bringing Merriweather back as a reason to not go after one of the top guys at CB or S. I don't endorse the strategy, but I can see it as one of their ways of thinking.

I hope we make moves over the next few days to bring in at least one starter at safety (Clemons), a nickel CB (Munnerlyn or Graham), a couple of pass rushing DE (Smith is a good start) and a potential starting OL. I'm nowhere near the panic button yet. Too many times in the past I was dancing in March and drinking in October.

If they do that, I will blow up Redskins Park.

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

I think right now only 2 of our 5 lineman spots have been set.
