Pryor and Brooks would probably be our best bets among those listed, being free safeties. My favorite is Deone Bucannon; he's more of a strong safety.
Thats a little concerning because at least going in it seems like there hasn't been a highly regarded safety class for a couple years now. Though looking back last year was probably the first respectable class to come along since 2010 (Eric Berry and Earl Thomas) and before that 2007 (the year Landry was drafted).

To put it in perspective Scouts Inc has 11 players at Tackle this year with a 3rd round or better grade compared to just 5 safeties. Maybe not the best apples to oranges comparison but then again you usually play with 2 tackles and 2 safeties so might not be too crazy.

Plus, we have no decent safeties! We should have outbid the Steelers in this case. Bottom line: the FO failed to land the quality young safety that we need.
OR

the FO decided that their evaluation of him didn't equate to the $$$ he was asking for.

OR

he decided this team wasn't the right fit for him and his aspirations.

OR

he wants us to change the name before he joins the team.

We are way more then 1 safety away from being a good defense... Overpaying for a free agent on top of a crappy roster got us where?

To be fair to the kid I think the consensus on that video is that it was staged. However that hasn't stopped it from being used on forums, social media, and blogs across the internet.

This is a good point and I kind of see what Allen's plan is. He's trying to build a team through the draft. The modest signings are patching some things up, but he's not building through free agency. He needs a couple more really strong drafts before I see him being aggressive in free agency.

I also think he's expecting better play from some of our young players, and the ones that were injured last year.

The point is they wouldn't have been overpaying in this market.

Four years ago we all thought it would take Shanny a few years to get rid of the bad contracts and smart drafting for us to field a contender.

Now, we all think it will take Allen a few years to field a contender.

I dont think we are far off from having a chance with a healthy griffin but the rational side of my brain says in a few years, we will replace Allen and be talking about how we need a few years to field a contender.

Thank goodness we have RG3 or i would have zero hope going forward.

This ESPN rundown on him is not positive.

League source tells @ESPNRadio980 that Antonio Cromartie would be "open to coming" to #Redskins but so far the team has not reached out.
