Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings

I assume he's probably better than anyone we currently have, which may not be saying too much. He's now been let go by two teams and the Bills seemingly made no attempt to sign him. Perhaps they feel he doesn't fit into their new 4-3 scheme. But this seems like a pretty good signing.

I do like what we're doing in FA. No big stupid signings, just some solid need pickups that can hopefully pan out.

Precisely...this is how it's supposed to work. I'd still prefer a true NT type in the draft, but I don't think there's any need to reach for one. We need a space eater to help free up our ILB's and several can fit that bill.

Getting stronger in the middle...wow, just what the Dr. ordered!

I really like the focus we've given the defense this year.

More than usual good NT prospects:

Caleb Brantley, Florida
Eddie Vanderdoes, UCLA
Dalvin Tomlinson, Alabama
Vincent Taylor, OK State
Larry Ogunjobi, Charlotte
Carlos Watkins, Clemson
Nazair Jones, UNC

Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings

I think we have addressed a lot of needs in free agency, time to go best player available in the draft. Cook RB, Foster ILB, top CB, fuck it, we are good.

Hold on, April 27?

What that fuck? Why in the fucking shit is the draft all the way at the end of April? Goodell did this shit. What are we waiting for? Muthr fuck a duck. This is such bullshit...

Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings

I will be attending the draft this year. I'm heading home from malaysia in a week to South Kersey so we are going... A browns fan, a cheifs fan, a few Sheagles fans and myself. Will be a good time but yes it gets seemingly later every year. And one round per opening day is bothersome.

Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings

Love the moves, the deal was only $4.6 million - sounds reasonable..

Seems like the philosophy is to sign young FA in their prime, which is great -- but we all have to remember our lack of success in FA in years past.... Hoping we combine this with good drafting so we can sustain this into the future. Free agents are always overpriced / aging / less motivated than young drafted talent..

Hoping for big years from Bree / Fuller, and our pass D looks much better..

I'd say we still need at least one playmaker at DL. We have some depth but no playmaker.

Baker is just average IMO, and he was our best DL, and from what I got McClain and McGee aren't that big of an improvement.

So I'm fine with drafting BPA as long as we end up drafting 2 DLs ^^

Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings

in my opinion drafting the BPA is for good teams, or teams with few holes. right now the skins need a variety of defensive players. lets not get ahead of ourselves in forgetting how bad this defensive really was last year. our offensive could have been a little better, with the red zone issues. but for the most part were a playoff caliber unit

I like to go as well but can't really figure out how the tickets work....any idea? Or do you just show up?

Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings

Nice deal. If he wants to re-up he's gonna show last year wasn't a fluke.

excellent point ! - unfortunately, it is unlikely that an elite DL will be available at #17. They could go offense in the first round, or trade down in the first. The second, third, and 2 fourths round picks should be defense.
