Like the Cardinals defensive line.

Moore played one year at the University of Texas after a college career that did not go as planned. He originally signed with the University of Alabama in 2009 – redshirting as a freshman and serving as a backup in 2010. He was placed on indefinite suspension in 2011 after a violation of team rules. Moore then transferred to East Mississippi Community College and, eventually, Texas.

Moore started five games for Texas, registering two sacks and eight tackles for a loss.

Redskins awarded Moore off waivers - Washington Redskins Blog - ESPN

Three colleges because of a suspension for "violation of team rules". But still good enough to transfer to Texas and get drafted.. Three NFL teams is a more concerning red flag. Perhaps we can get lucky and coach something out of him..

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

Rich Tandler listed 5 FA's who he thinks the Skins should continue to pursue:

S Ryan Clark—They still need an experienced safety and Clark could fill the void until Phillip Thomas and/or Bacarri Rambo are ready to play.

I agree. He would be a leader and mentor in the secondary, IMO. Also, he already knows the defense. He may need some time to get used to the idea that he's not going to get the contract he would like to have at this point in his career.

OLB Anthony Spencer—As noted here yesterday, the Redskins still need some depth at outside linebacker. Given the microfracture surgery he had last year he might not be the ideal option, but there aren’t many out there.

Again, I agree. If it looks like he is going to recover fully, we would be in a position to wait for him. Medium risk, very high reward, IMO. He may turn out to be a great signing for some team.

WR Robert Meachem—I get the feeling that the Redskins are going to add another veteran receiver as insurance in the event of either a problem with Leonard Hankerson’s recovery or the inability to land a receiver in the draft. Meachem hasn’t been very productive the last two seasons (average 15 rec., 265 yards, 2 TD) but he has size (6-2) and speed to be a contributor as a No. 4 wide receiver.

I disagree. How many #4 receivers do we need? We'd be better off signing Kenny Britt if management believes that they might be able to help him turn around his career. Then we're looking at a potential #2 receiver.

C Brian De La Puente—The former Saint is still out there after visiting the Redskins last week. At 306 pounds, he’s could easily get up to Jay Gruden’s ideal size for a center. At age 29 he’s a medium term solution in the middle of the line.

To me, this would depend entirely on the contract. Kory can play center, but if we could get De La Puenta, it would definitely strengthen the OL.

OT Eric Winston—...there are few options left that would be a clear step up from the much-maligned Polumbus. Winston has a chance to be one of them and he could be a good fit as long as they don’t pay him like he’s the savior.

I'd be OK with Winston. Tyson Clabo might be an option, as well.

He didn't mention Owen Daniels but I like the idea of giving RGIII another weapon, plus I think we need some insurance at receiving TE.

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

The only one of those I would approve of is...Eric Winston! Somewhere, JoeRedskin is sighing.

In all seriousness, Clark is too old, Spencer would be asking too much considering his age and the injury, Meachem is just another mid-tier WR(wouldn't mind him, but I'd like a legit #2), and De La Puente would be a decent signing, but would push Kory L. off the roster(considering his salary). Winston would be a clear upgrade, for a few years, anyway...

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

I like the idea of Phillip Thomas starting at SS.....I wouldn't mind Clark returning....his experience would be a great addition.....but Thomas should be hungry and eager after missing his entire rookie season....

An alternative plan for FS might be to sign or trade for a veteran CB who still has a little tread on his tires and move DHall to FS.

If we were to sign De La Puente, I don't think Kory would be going anywhere because he is a good, versatile OL and we'd still need a backup center. Besides, I don't see anyone on the roster who I think would be likely to beat out Kory at OG.

Me, too! You and I may be his biggest boosters. I loved the guy coming out of college. Let's hope he's fully healed and ready to compete.

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

Per Rotoworld:

The Redskins plan to use Shawn Lauvao at left guard.

For now, at least, undersized Chris Chester is staying at right guard, with Kory Lichtensteiger penciled in lightly at center. Lauvao was a right guard in Cleveland, but struggled there and the Skins apparently believe he'll be better off playing next to LT Trent Williams. Lauvao's contract was among free agency's biggest head scratchers, receiving $17 million over four years.


There is next to nothing in this article that makes me feel better about our OL. So far, I feel that the Skins have failed to significantly improve the OL in FA.

I don't understand why the Skins overpaid Lauvau and then changed his position in order to have him replace the OG who wasn't a problem while keeping in place the OG who was a problem.

Right now, I'm still hoping that we sign a legitimate starting RT and that McRibust gets in shape and wins a starting job at OG.

A while back, somebody, Scheend10, I think, stated the importance of a "fast FS" in Haslett's defense. Well, Hall's fast...we need a fast FS...Hall has said he would like to move to FS...not to hard to connect the dots. For this year at least, though, I think Hall needs to stay at CB.

Hey, I was the guy before the draft that said, and this is a direct quote, "Whoever gets Phillip Thomas is one lucky team." I loved the guy coming out, and had huge hopes for him. And it's not just the fans; Bruce Allen said Thomas would have started last year.

You're kidding, right? KL is an undersized guard that can't pass block. He would be a very small anchor (too small as a center) on the line that is being built.
He knew Shanny's offense from his days in Denver. he played the year Shanny was fired, and then he was cut by McDaniel.
He is a system guy.

Yeah we really need one of the young DB's to step up. I don't think Rambo can play. But Thomas might be the physical presence that we've been lacking at safety. My concern w/ Thomas is he's had two major injuries now in 3 years.
