Re: Redskins sign free safety

Though this gives us considerable depth at safety, we are thinner at CB. I wonder if Williams sees any of these guys as possible converts?

Re: Redskins sign free safety

we only carried 4 active cb's on the roster last year... smoot , springs, harris and jimoh

wilds and rufus came in when smoot and springs were injured, they came from the practice spuad. so we might carry 5 safties

Re: Redskins sign free safety

I don't see Bowen getting cut, he played really well before the injury and he's a good locker room/team guy.

It looks like a bargaining chip move with Taylor, sadly.

Re: Redskins sign free safety

How about this: He wasn't signed to replace anyone specific, but to overstock the position to make for a good competition in camp. Let the best men win!

Before his injury, Bowen was on pace for a break-out season, so I don't know if they would cut him, unless it's purely a salary cap management decision...

I could see it also as a possible "insurance policy" for Taylor, since it seems that no one knows what he's really up to....aside from his personal spokesman Clinton Portis that is....

I agree man.....Bowen was a Beast early on! He looked great in William's system.....I think we need to remember that BOTH Bowen and Lott are coming off of serious knee injuries where you see the best progress TWO YEARS after the injury. Not to say they can't play.....but I have always heard that it is TWO YEARS removed from injuries like that!

Re: Redskins sign free safety

Bowen did look good in week one last year, BUT my reasoning for him being a potential cut is due to his salary.

He's making starter money so unless he wins a job, we could save some valuable cap space by letting him go.

Good point.....do you happen to know how much we could save?? or would we have to eat some of his contract if we let him go??

Re: Redskins sign free safety

When you look at Hall's size, well, the news isn't good for Bowen.

Re: Redskins sign free safety

I agree. Bowen looked great in that first game and had two marginal games after that.

Re: Redskins sign free safety

gibbs is getting sick of sean taylor, he's not at camp and he's not even returning joe's phone calls. the skins are gonna look to trade taylor for a first round draft pick in next years draft, unless taylor changes his ways and starts acting like a team player. he is the only player with an UNEXCUSED absence from camp.

Totally agree. Redskins pride is forefront, Coach Gibbs wants 'Redskins' not U Princesses.
