Re: Possible MLB?

He won't come cheap, as DragoJT87 said, Sharper was 7th in the NFL last year in tackles. Led the NFL in tackles the year before.
That does not sound like someone who will come cheap.

I can understand this concept if there was no salary cap...after all, depth is a good thing. Unfortunately, with the salary cap, picking up a player that we may not have a use for doesn't seem very logical if we have X amount of dollars to spend. I would say to address areas that we have a larger need for.

Re: Possible MLB?

It's pretty obvious that you only pick him up if you can fit them under the cap. I think he'd be a good signing if he came cheap.

Re: Possible MLB?

if barrow is at full strength when the season starts , he'll prolly be the starter. i don't consider him as being a bust as some of you have suggested, he was injured just like lavar. barrow is a very good mlb when healthy. it would be great if he could return and have a good year for us.

Re: Possible MLB?

Barrow is only considered a bust because he didnt come cheap and he's old and dealing with career threatening tendinitis issues. He could possibly come back and captain our defense next year and do well, and I hope he does. I doubt Sharper is a possibility. His only motivation to coming to the skins would be money, and we cant give it to him right now. There are several teams who need a MLB that have the $ to spend. We're not one of them. BTW... he did finish 7th in tackles and led the league the year befor while playing on one of the bottom 5 defenses both years.

Once we have addressed all the major areas in need and if we have room under the cap, then yeah, I agree. Like I said, depth is a good thing. Of course having that extra salary cap room can prove just as much of a good thing, obviously. But, I wouldn't go out and grab a guy that plays something like MLB when maybe the depth issues are more problematic in other areas. Not saying this is necessarily so in the MLB position for the Redskins. However I wouldn't, for example, go out and grab a running back knowing I had depth in that area even though the free agent is a quality player and you MIGHT get him cheap. But, then again, if the guy shows that he is a quality players, you're probably not going to get him very cheap to begin with.

Re: Possible MLB?

I don't see any reason why we shouldn't go after Sharper. The fact that Marshall played above average last season as an OUTSIDE linebacker, does not mean he will play at the same level as as MIDDLE line backer. Yes, I am aware that Pierce made that change successfully, but that doesn't mean all others can.

If he can be gotten for value, then get him, if not, then pass up. Sharper is a quality player, but the skins should show restrain on the cap hit.

Read this article it will clear up as to why the coaching staff feels that Marshall is more than able to step in at MLB. http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...del&type=story

Anyhow nothing against Sharper, but we would not be gaining much, I mean he would still have to relearn the MLB position in Williams schems. I am not saying that he cant do it, but why bring someone in when there is someone here that has a year under his belt in the system?

Re: Possible MLB?

Stick with what we've got, MLB is not a huge priority and if Williams is comfortable with what he's got at that spot, so am I.

Re: Possible MLB?

Exactly. I really would love to see the fruits of Marshall's efforts last year coming into effect.

Re: Possible MLB?

I have to admit, I have always been partial to good MLB's. I like the big, run stuffing, "I'm gonna kill you bad" kind. Marshall doesn't really fit into that mold. But, as with most, I am all about Williams - if Marshall is good enough for Williams, Marshall's good enough for me.

Re: Possible MLB?

AND he's talking about bulking up for the position too. I think he could fit the bill you're talking about if he puts on some muscle. I remember Marshall laying down some nasty hits last year too.

Since we had SO many, his didn't quite make the highlight reels.
