Yeah, it lacks talent in both spots. I dont see Sharpton as a starter. I like Amerson and we will see if he is talented to start outside.

Cant expect to draft 3-4 starters right away. And the talk of going WR first in a deep WR draft is flat out retarded with the holes at both Safety spots, ILB, and especially Oline.

Im really confused about our Oline approach. Folks our number #1 asset is RG3, if we dont protect him, we set the franchise back another 5 years minimum. Its like we forgot he had major knee surgery. Polumbus, Chester and Monty cannot pass block. Kory L wasnt great either last year. We better get that straight before the season.

Monty is gone.

Seems like Allen and co. are well aware the line needs help. That's why the signed Lauvao and were pursuing Penn.

Can't fill all of our needs in one offseason. And it's far from over too.

Your comment is fair enough. But the WR idea cuts two ways. Since it is a deep draft, we could get a WR with talent in the 6th round, sure. But since it is a deep draft, we also could get a first-round talent in the second round. Wouldn't you want RGIII throwing to a WR with first-round talent?

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

just in case anyone missed it last night...

Redskins lose Donald Penn to Raiders

Not a real loss in my eyes, he has had a knee injury in the past. Its not like the Buccs killed it on offense last year. I wouldn't consider him elite.

If the right player is available in the draft my philosophy is get him regardless of position. Picking a guy that makes a position special is worth it. Rather have Benjamin than some ILB. If Benjamin is not there then bring in Skov.

The simple truth.

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

We cant fill all the holes, but you have to be able to see the big picture and fill the most important ones. Jay throws the ball more than Kyle. Being able to pass protect should be of the highest importance especially with a QB coming off a major knee injury.

Don't hold your breath on that one. That position has been addressed 4 times over the past 4 years (Hurt, LeRibeus, Gettis, Lavaou) and Chester is still on the roster. Our starter will come from that grouping. May see one as early as the 4th but I don't think this is a priority.

With the Jordan signing, same thing at ILB. Been addressed with the signing of Jordan and Sharption, re-signing of Riley and Robinson on the roster. Can't see a pick of Borland or Skov.

Based on our approach to free agency (which I am about 65-35 in favor of at this point) I'm thinking we either trade into the 1st round for one of the safeties, draft a WR at 34 or trade back to try to get additional picks. I don't think a RT will be a value at 34, we should be able to get someone in the 3rd at that position.

I agree with you for the most part, but with Griffs injury history the value of any o-lineman we pick is a little higher than it would be for alot of other teams. We HAVE to protect him

True. But we also HAVE to give him weapons, especially with Reed's dicey health.

If I had to guess right now this could change 3 TE's & 2 QB's on final 53.

We should have went after Quintin Demps. Giants got him that sucks.
I just saw a report Incognito still hopeful to play next year. I still say sign that guy.

There is no doubt in my mind that we need an upgrade at RT this season. I think we might need to go for a rental right now and then explore ways to fix the problem on a long-term basis. I would definitely like to see the Skins go after Tyson Clabo or Eric Winston on a short-term deal.

We saw what Griff did a couple years ago with limited weaponry. I think keeping him upright is higher on the priority list than surrounding him with weapons. Reed i think we shutdown because the season was obviously over. Not that the concussion wasnt serious, but it was a high risk, low reward situation to play him at that point. Im not ready to call his health "dicey" yet.
Ideally we address the oline and a wr. Im not as concerned about safety so much. We have Thomas, Rambo, and Gumbs and with the addition of Hatcher im interested to see how they play with a pass rush. BW is back and who knows maybe he can stay healthy.
