Redskins 2018 O/S needs post Alex Smith Trade.

Ok now that it's been a couple days and we all now understand Alex is the guy to build around for the next 3 years lets look at possibilities via FA and the Draft to help the guy win games like he did in KC/SF.

What are your thoughts on talent to surround him with?

I don't expect a huge FA period for the skins but I can see a couple guys signed.

1. He needs someone else to throw the ball to, Doctson is not a number 1 WR just yet so lets look at guys that we could bring in.

SAMMY WATKINS

RZ threat and good pos wr, had 8 TDS this yr in LA, I doubt he would want to leave the Rams but if they choose to look away he would be a solid cheaper pick up.


ERIC DECKER

Another solid pos guy that we really need over the middle of the field, yeah he's probably not a popular option but he could also be cheap and productive in Jays system.

Finally

JARVIS LANDRY

He would be the big splash guy but IMO he is nothing more than a great slot WR, we already have Crowder who isn't as good but is still young and productive every yr.

I would add RB's but honestly its L Bell or nobody with the group that is available.

Defense I think we can address via the draft, unless we can somehow pry D Lawrence away from Dallas (not happening).

What do you guys think needs to be done now the QB situation is finalized?

Re: Redskins 2018 O/S needs post Alex Smith Trade.

I don't know what players, but I think we need to add
through FA
WR
OG
CB

The draft
DL
RB
CB
a punt returner to get Crowder out of that position

Re: Redskins 2018 O/S needs post Alex Smith Trade.

For a nice even number, if we can sign/resign/draft a total of 10 players I'd want:

WR
ILB
ILB
RB
LG
CB
CB
FS
EDGE
NT* EDITED - KNEW I WAS FORGETTING 1 POS.

Not in any particular order.

Blocking TE would be next on my list.

Re: Redskins 2018 O/S needs post Alex Smith Trade.

To me the most pressing need is a power running game and stopping the run on defense. These are the most basic foundation building blocks of any good team and we can not do either and cannot seem to fix it over the last couple of years.

LG - replace over priced and frequently injured Shawn Lauvao. This to me is the single most important roster move last year and this year that never got done. Who the fuck in the redskins FO likes Lauvao that we do not have a young stud replacement? Good Guards are always available in the draft in the first two rounds but we always pick a WR or RB. Finish fixing the O-line first.

NT - can we get a couple of big run stopping DT/NT's that haves not had multiple season ending injuries.

TE- - we need another run blocking TE besides Davis.

We have to go back to being a physical team and not a pass happy finesse team. On both sides of the ball. I am tired of seeing our o-line not be able open up run lanes, as well as our defense get pushed around. This has to stop for us to win.

Re: Redskins 2018 O/S needs post Alex Smith Trade.

We need a TE to complement Vernon Davis. We have an out with Reed this year I say take it. He is slated to make 8.25 mil but has a dead cap of 5.4 mil. I think we can find a stop gap TE that would have more productivity for an entire season for 3 mil. Ben Watson comes to mind he is old but at least plays 16 games a season.

Stud WR and RB please, enough dicking around with likes of Rob Kelley and Perine.

Re: Redskins 2018 O/S needs post Alex Smith Trade.

Lets start by resigning Zack Brown, Trent Murphy, Breeland and possibly Gallette if he wants to return. Draft a WR and RB forget those WRs mentioned.

agree, Bell would put a smile on my face and give me something to look forward too next season.

Fuck every other need if it doesn't revolve around building a running game

Re: Redskins 2018 O/S needs post Alex Smith Trade.

I'll say it now. I WANT Isaiah Crowell. 25 years old, don't think he'd be crazy expensive. Love watching him play. Definitely be an upgrade!

On defense, what about DT Sheldon Richardson ?

Or Demarcus Lawrence, coming of a 14,5 sacks season? I'd say we need DT more than DE but we still could use him.

If we don't retain Zach Brown (which I would hate), I'm looking at Navorro Bowman and Demario Davis.

Other needs I'd address through the draft. (Except if there's a good Guard available but I won't pretend I know enough about this position on other teams to talk about it).

Id rather go the draft route for RB but Crowell would be an interesting option.

Re: Redskins 2018 O/S needs post Alex Smith Trade.

You could do something really dumb with this Free Agent WR class...I would entirely pass on everybody unless Allen Robinson would be interested in a prove it deal....which I think most here is tired of...

2 Cap Casualty WR could be Mike Crabtree or D. Thomas (broncos)....if either one would get loose, I would take a serious look at a reasonable deal.

I wouldn't love Crowell, but its tough to evaluate him last year bc he run against constant stacked fronts with a Rookie QB who was too over matched and wasn't ready to start.

Id like to see Crowell yards after contact stat...think I have and it wasn't impressive.
