NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

The deadline to make a trade is set for next week. I do not mean to spark any talk about crazy trade proposals (i.e. Ramsey and Arrington for a 1st and 3rd round draft pick), but the topic is thread-worthy.

The only possible trade that I think might warrant some consideration is a trade for Chargers guard Toniu Fonoti. The NFL Network has reported that Fonoti is on the market. Fonoti is perhaps the league's best young guard and the word on the street is that he could be obtained at a bargain price (mid-round draft pick). However, he is coming off an injury, is in the last year of his rookie contract, and will command a ton of dollars.

Although Derrick Dockery has potential, I have yet to see him develop into a very good offensive giard. I can come up with a lot of reasons why he should not be replaced, but Fonoti is an interesting player. What do you think?

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

In my humble opinion, I think if we decided to pick up an extra offensive lineman or two, it would be for depth reasons. I think Dockery is playing relatively well enough and tying up alot of money into another guard is just not what the Redskins need to do....but certainly stranger things could happen. If we had to pick up anybody in midseason, I believe we'd need to concentrate on the defensive line. We need more pass rushing linemen to get more pressure on the QB and to allow GW to take pressure off the secondary that is already thin as it is.

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

i think we stick with dockery. dockery has been with this o-line for what, 3 years? he's comfortable with his place, and they are comfortable with him. trading for fonoti wouldn't make the rest of the o-line comfortable, so i say we stick with dockery. besides, he hasn't been that bad this season, our o-line has been performing great recently, except for the dallas game.

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

I actually think that Dockery is good enough to keep his job. But, for anyone who has followed Fonoti's career, he is a very interesting player; the guy is a absolutely dominant guard.

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

I don't see any reason NOT to sign him for depth if he comes at a reasonable price.

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

he's not on the free agent market though, we'd have to trade for him. i'm not willing to give up something for him, i'm comfortable with our o-line depth.

Yeah...at a reasonable price, but if RF is right, that probably wouldn't happen.

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

This isn't the NBA or MLB...plug-and-play doesn't fly in the NFL. Only desperate teams (i.e. the Saints) or ones with players to spare make trades at this point in the game and I don't see us having players to spare.

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

even if we get someone, they'd have to learn the gameplan and figure out their teammates. I don't think a good DE is up for trade, and if we could get one, it could easily be 6 weeks before they hit the field.

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

You guys do realize the cap hit involved with moving Arrington right now would make it impossible.

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

And if Brunnel got hurt we would want to rest the entire load on the rookie. Not going to happen. As far as Arrington the cap hit makes it impossible for them to move him. I believe Arrington will be a starter and contributor by November.

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

I think one of the strongest areas on our team is the line. Dockery is playing as well as he has since drafted, and this is only his 3rd season. Thomas is playing well also, and he is in his prime as offensive lineman go. I dont think we need to bring him here, he may be one of those distraction things if he doesn't get playing time, being as good as it is said he is. I think we have the makings of a hell of an O-Line. All are relatively young by lineman standards. Samuels signed a "lifetime" contract(is that possible now a days), Jansens a ROCK, and Raybach is in his first year and plus hes playing in his hometown. What we need is a D-Lineman that can rush the passer. If we can deal somebody(NOT A PICK DANNY!!) for a pass rusher (although I think we have a damn good one on the bench) that would help with the lack of pressure and maybe cause some INTS , fumbles ect.

Re: NFL Trade Deadline Next Week

Yea we need def end help and corner most of all, but i am not entirely sold on dockery,yet. and fonoti is a beast. if we can get him cheap why not. our guard depth and all beyond the 41 year old is suspect. and we've been talking about our inability to run block when we need to ie.. for 1st downs and goal line.he would really help in this. about 6"2 349pds.. let's move the pile.but i agree corner and d end are most important.
