Good interview. I like when he talks about Coach Harbaugh and vets getting complacent, IMO that's RAK saying I don't need to learn another pass rush move I'm OK.

I don't hate Murphy. Seems like a good player with a good motor. Just not sure I saw the position itself as something we should be focusing on. With Orakpo and Kerrigan starting and Rob Jackson and Brandon Jenkins as backups, I'm fairly happy with our talent at OLB. To me, this screams that Orakpo is done in DC.

My guess is the coaching staff see the special teamers we picked up as backups, and potentially future starters at the ILB role. As someone else said. When we passed on Moses I was concerned. When he fell, I was far less concerned. Had we swapped those two picks I would have had less of a gripe, but still feel we could have probably made a better choice.

Note: Please don't read my sig because it contradicts my above point...

There is no doubt Orakpo is playing his last year as a Redskin, and Kerrigan's contract expires in 2 seasons. Jackson is a back-up, and Jenkins is a project at best.

Murphy can save the Redskins over $10 million dollars next season

That is an utterly ridiculous statement.

I think the depth is there at ILB for at the very worst, a platoon type approach if needed. Sharpton, Jordan, Compton, Hayward, etc.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

People are getting a little ahead of themselves with assuming Rak is gone. What if he has a monster season? Think they'll just let him walk if he puts up big numbers?

I know the front office was split on re-signing him, but I'm sure those that were against it could be swayed if he goes out there and knocks it out of the park.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

Nothing wrong with have a guy in the wings if Orakpo does take his talents and leaves, but I don't see Murphy as a guarantee Orakpo is gone. It simply, and hopefully, makes it where the Skins aren't over a barrel, and can walk away if the two sides can't agree.

Nothing wrong with 3-4 solid OLB's especially when two are on rookie deals.

Yup, I see Murphy as leverage for the team when it comes contract time for Rak, and of course in the meantime it doesn't hurt to have more help when it comes to the rush.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

It would be a real.....boon for this team to have some fresh legs in the pass rush without a huge letoff in talent.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

im excited to see what a fully healthy rak can do. no matter the scenario, i think we benefit.

if rak plays like a beast and walks = we got a beast year out of him

if rak plays decent = we can resign him for FMV if we want or let him walk if we want

not really, if Orakpo has a good season he will want $75+ million for 5 years... if not he will still expect $10 million per year.

They have more important places to spend their money.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

I would like to say that it's not a foregone conclusion he is gone. I may have stated that too strong. They are, however, laying the groundwork to allow for that. I think Matty is correct that it gives them leverage or in the worst case scenario an option if he leaves.

However, we have some guys coming up that will require big money. Alf Mo, RG3, and Jordan Reed will all likely require fairly hefty contracts. Not to mention Kerrigan on the defensive side.

i would just replace those guys through the draft, rinse wash repeat these positions every 3-4 years.

i wouldnt pay a RB or a TE a second contract/big money unless he was an absolute stud game changer.

i just dont see alfo or reed being that but they still have a lot of football to play to prove otherwise.

while they are productive and important players on our team last year and this year, i do not believe they will be irreplaceable parts of our team 2-3 years from now.
