On the cheeeeap cheap yeah, but I don't care to give good money to a player who has great talent but doesn't want to put the work in to be elite.

So the fact that he was the third target means nothing about the 43 catches right?

Fixed it for you.

No freakin' way. Not even on the cheap. Dude doesn't want to play football and has never had a productive season. Plus he can't stop getting arrested. DC is not the place for a guy like Britt. He needs to go to Green Bay.

Just call it like I see it. If we sign him and he gets arrested you'll be the first one complaining!

Re: WR Andre Roberts has agreed to deal with Redskins

I wouldn't sign Britt and count on him coming in to be a starter. I would however take a chance on him with a low risk/prove it type of deal and bring him to camp and let him earn a spot.

To me it comes down to getting some guys that can match up with the best teams in the conference, Seattle, Carolina and SF. We played those teams in 12 and 13. They basically trampled us in the trenches. A long time ago this is what we use to do to teams. Roberts is a solid player, good signing, but is he going to really help us become an elite team? Now Michael Johnson is someone I would have made a move for. I find a way to get him in my 3-4/ 4-3 hybrid defense. He makes Rak and Kerrigan better. TB already signed him so that's a no go.

Re: WR Andre Roberts has agreed to deal with Redskins

Free agency is just getting started, just because we signed a WR out of the gate doesn't mean other positions are being ignored. Patience. Let's see how it all plays out.

A) Roberts alone does not help us to match up with the teams you mentioned. However, he is our first offseason move. There is already discussion about our acquiring Linval Joseph - how is that for working on the trenches? And once we have matched up in the trenches, a capable slot receiver can be a difference-maker.

B) Michael Johnson? Talented, sure. But he is too small for our DL, which means he'd change positions to OLB for us. Can he cover? Can he make the transition? Does he want to make the transition? Fact is, we're likely better off sticking with Kerrakpo.

Therefore, (C):
You're knocking the small Roberts signing but you're calling for big $$ to be spent to make a player change positions.

I don't get (C)

From what I have read, the guy is not just a good signing talent-wise, he is a solid character guy. What makes you think the guy is even a prospect for character flags other than "He's not a superstar on a bad team so he really has no place with us."?

By calling this a good signing, I don't think anyone is saying "Wohooo!! Superbowl here we come!!" More like "Cool, solid guy, looks like he can help and is a younger alternative to, and possible improvement on, Moss."

You're right though. The first announcement should have been that we traded our next three first round picks for Revis Island.
