Gibbs Skeptical that Gardner Will Return

After being miserable as a Redskin in 2004, Rod Gardner asked Redskins' head coach Joe Gibbs that he be traded or released. Gibbs, wanting to develop a core group of Redskins who wanted be in D.C., seemed willing to honor Gardner's request and the team sought to trade him prior to last month's draft. However, no other team was willing to part with Washington's asking price of a 3rd round draft pick.

Shortly after the draft, Gibbs supposedly made efforts to have Gardner return to the team for the 2005 season. Gardner, who is entering the final year of his contract, balked at Gibbs' overtures and failed to attend the off-season workouts.

Today, Gibbs informed the media that he is "skeptical" that Gardner would return to the team. So, with no one willing to trade a 3rd round pick for Gardner and Gibbs having made public Gardner's unwillingness to return to the team, what should the 'Skins do?

Cut, cut, cut, if that's his attitude.

Kill him, cut off his head and put it on a pike as a warning to other malcontents.

No for real I say might as well drop him I don't see trade value and we could use the cap space.

Gibbs Skeptical that Gardner Will Return

OK....Moss, Jacobs, Patten, Gardener and Brown are our recievers for now.
Does that mean Thrash, McCants and Holiday will be cut?...
They are all big recievers....
Gardener will be the only one with some size left
If Gardener is gone then who will take his place?
Why bring in Holiday? Competition will already be fierce for Gardeners spot.
Remember the Smurfs? Are we going small ball now?
Who do you think will be our starting five?
Forgive my curiosity.

I highly doubt that Thrash will be cut, he is way to valuable on special teams. McCants maybe cut but I dont think so either.

IMO, here is our starting WR trio,
Moss, Jacobs, Patten, with Thrash and McCants working in on other packages and Brown may see some time at wide receiver but mostly he and Chad Morton will be our return men...

Morton is gone...
Brown is out in your scenario because usually we keep 5 recievers....

Morton maybe gone come June 1st, but as of now he is still on the team, and as for Brown I am willing to bet that he will be our main return man next year. I highly doubt that Gibbs will use Moss only because of the contract he just signed. Moss is going to be our new #1 wr. We may only carry 5 recievers but like I said I am willing to bet that Brown will be our return man.

Re: Gibbs Skeptical that Gardner Will Return

If things can't be smoothed over with Gardner just cut him and save the $2M.

This thing about needing a big WR is overrated anyway. What good did he do us the last few years??

Production is the key, not size.

Re: Gibbs Skeptical that Gardner Will Return

Anyone think that Moss will be sharing return duties?
