Carter has a slightly better chance than Chico of making the team. A tenth year vet gets a minimum of close to a million dollars. A rookie makes about half that. And there is nothing in Carter's resume that says he has more value than a tackling dummy.

McGee definitely has a reputation for not playing hard enough. I'm wondering if Jim Tomsula has a relationship with him and thinks he can motivate him. McGee is big and talented. If he puts out better effort, I think he could be a good player for us.

BTW, I like the Ziggy Hood signing. He played hard for us last season.
I watched most of the games & I don't remember Ziggy ever being a factor.
Wasn't he the lowest rated DT in the entire league last year?

I can't be more in shock that they would bring that guy back.

Hopefully, he will tear it up this year, but I won't be holding my breath.

Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings

Interesting Keim is hinting that a lot folks assumed Ricky jean and baker were big lockerroom guys. Apparently, they were but maybe the message didn't always jive with the staff or some of the players. One thing was true, the dline was bad the last couple years.

On the other hand, dhall is someone they want back, maybe a better leader in the lockerroom.

Poe's signed with Falcons.

Guess only legit DL left is Hankins? Otherwise we gamble with the draft, and the older DL that are released later in May-August....

Do you think your grasping on this on?

Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings

Hankins wants $10 million a year. This why it was foolish not to draft a DL until the 5th round in 2016. And why they must get two good ones early in the 2017 draft.

Manusky says he has 3 NGs now... Phillip Taylor, Joey Mbu Houston U, and Matt I. And says Lanier is now 290..... he must be sarcastic if he is counting on any of them

I won't say that Hankins can't get $10M because there has been some big money thrown around for average DL's in FA this year. I can say that I wouldn't pay him $10M. I'm struggling to understand the big DL FA contracts because the draft is absolutely loaded with DL talent this year.

Agree with you that a DL should have been picked early in last year's draft. Some of the early round DL's from last year's draft are developing nicely throughout the league.

Players develop over time, some slower than others, so i think Matt I. has a chance to contribute at DT this season. Im hoping that Jim Tomsula can get him ready.

I'm excited to hear that Lanier is now at 290 pounds. He is a talent at DE and I think he could provide us with effective pass-rushing from the DE position. Dare I say that he might become a star in a year or two?

Well, the Skins agree with me and PFF agrees with you, so we'll see.

Perhaps you didn't notice this last season, but every time Ziggy was about to make a tackle either Big Swaggy or Ricky-Jean would push him out of the way or trip him so one of them could make the tackle instead. It's true! Would I lie about that just to win an argument?

PFF should have a stat for greedy teammate interference with a tackling opportunity. If they did Ziggy would have been rated much higher.

Except for
Swearinger, our acquisitions have sucked. Quit trying to put lipstick on a hog. None of these guys sans Swearinger will have a shot at starting. They were better off trying to keep
Baker.

Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings

The signings were about depth at best and keeping money for Kirk.

On defense, yes. On offense I'm pleased with the Pryor signing.

If the draft is full of DL then I would wait and see what we do there.

In today's NFL the draft is so important, you need those quality rookie guys to build from plus they come on the cheap for 4 years.

The off season is far from over. Back in the day everyone was pissed when we went after the big fish now that we hold back everyone is still pissed. Damned if you do damned if you don't.

I think FS is pretty much Hall's job this year.

It would be foolish to count on DHall, he has been injured the last 3 seasons. Hall has a total of 3 passes defended in the last 3 seasons. And he is 33 years old. If he does not take a major pay cut, he will not make the team.
