Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

Jackson's highly unlikely to come here for a number of reasons but for the sake of discussion, I'd be fully in support of him signing here.

He is what we've been needing for nearly a decade if not longer, a true threat at the WR position that teams have to game plan for. Garcon is a helluva receiver underneath and with the ball in his hands but we've never seen him catch a vertical route. Nobody else on our WR corp is more than 'just a guy' or worse. Adding Jackson to Garcon and Reed gives us a tremendous array of passing options.

As for the off the field stuff, yeah it's a concern but I don't worry about our locker room with stuff like this. For better or worse, Shanahan brought in a ton of character guys via the draft and even free agency who were captains of their college teams or leaders on other teams. We don't have the mercenary locker room culture that existed from 2000-2010 anymore. Jackson would find his space and fit in.

He's probably going to be a Chief or a Raider and we will trot out mediocre receivers once again.

Pretty sure the bad blood was between him and Landry since pre-game of the Monday night disaster Landry pointed to his head as Jackson was just returning from a bad concussion.

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

As long as it doesn't kill us cap wise, BA needs to get this done. I don't believe there is a receiver we could draft in the 2nd round that would help us like him is there??

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

i'd file this under don't get your hopes up. he wants a lot of money, which we're a bit short on now, and the iggles released him in his prime, which should give you pause. outside of dawkins, there aren't a lot of cases of ex-iggles having good post-philly success.

he definitely has talent and is worth looking at, but i just don't see it happening.

Kinda torn on this. Talented player but he definitely brings drama and baggage.

I don't care get him or don't get him, but I have a feeling if we gave away next year's 2nd round pick to get him some people would be OK with it then.

I wonder if this humbling experience of getting fired on national news and talk of his attitude and possible gang issues might change him for the better a la Chris Carter? You have to think he is reflecting hard on this embarrassing experience, one that he created.
Before making a contract offer though I would be 100% sure in what if anything substantial the Eagles found outside of football that might of made them cut him. Or was it just a locker room issue?
Could he be a suspect in a serious crime like Hernandez?

We will see.

Cut Hankerson and Polumbus -save 3.3 mill in cap space draft best RT prospect and sign Jackson for 5yr 50mill 24mill guaranteed (about 7.5 mill cap hit). I admit I am feeling like Hankerson brings nothing to the table and the offense with RGIII, Garcon, Djax, Roberts, Morris would have scary potential with a solid RT in the draft.

And DJax knows how to him some punts against the NfC East!

Re: Redskins Free Agents Signings Thread

I think Hankerson turns in his best year yet this season. I say no to DJax, too many potential issues for that hefty price tag. We already have a number one, why splurge on a 1a if we need help with RT and safety?

Maybe at the skill positions. Certainly not the o-line, and with no o-line all of them suffer. Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

At this point any OL help you bring in other than with our first pick is of negligible upgrade value. If RT is going to be addressed it would be best to do it between pick number 29 and 38. Since I doubt we trade up maybe we trade down a few spots and gain a late pick but basically pick 34 needs to be an RT to improve the line any. That would mean finding safeties among camp cuts or bringing in Clark and seeing what our young guys do.
