Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

Bowen is Hatcher's best friend, and I am sure they lured him here with that (to a degree; not to say the $$ didn't hold sway). I suspect it was with a view toward negotiating a lower number with Bowen so that he could also stay, which makes great sense to me.

I get what you're saying. I think it would be a shame for Hatcher to come here only to see his best friend cut.

On the other hand, pro football is a business and Bowen has underachieved based on the value of his contract. Unfortunately, he has been a non-factor in rushing the passer. So now, if he wants to be on the team with his best friend, it's up to him take a pay cut.

Sentimental reasons aside, I don't know why several posters have said they want him back. He's been no better than average since he's been with the Redskins.

Yep, Bowen is vanilla, we need to swap him out ASAP.

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

Do Kenny Britt and his agent have a plan? If so, it seems to be to visit as many teams as necessary until they find a GM who is stupid enough to sign him to anything other than a one-year "prove-it" deal.

When Britt visited here, I thought we might sign him. I thought that Britt and his agent might see the value of signing here to his career aspirations, if he has any. After all, we need a big, fast WR across from Garcon and Britt would be playing with RGIII if he were to come here.

Don't get me wrong; I have no opinion about whether or not we should sign him or even if Bruce wants him on the team. I'm just sayin'...

Britt was on thin ice last year and still played like crap. He strikes me as a confused, entitled individual who thinks a big contract should just be handed to him.

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

Fair number of visits this week but few signings. Sounds like we're really trying to let the market settle? I wish we'd pull the trigger on de la Puente, guess he didn't like our offer?

Anybody hear about Dez Briscoe? I think he was an RFA, but I can't see where (or if) he signed.



Thanks.

They didn't tender him a new contract, so he's unrestricted. Hasn't signed anywhere

I doubt he will until camps or OTAs begin. He didn't show anything but stone hands here.

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

I know our WR Corp is not a strength and is, generally, pretty average.

Then I think of 2011's top three wideouts:
Jabar Gaffney
Santana
Donte Stallworth

Given its mediocrity, it's sad to think how phenomenally better our current group is than the 2011 group.

The greatest mistake in Redskins history was getting rid of Gaffney, who is way better than Garcon.
