Re: Redskins free agent signings 2018

The Skins have definitely gone to a more conservative cap approach, signings that are heavy on playtime incentives, shorter terms for new players, market based values. I see that as more positive then before and less likely to have bad players for big money, but it also seems to mean you lose out in certain position groups, like DT who know they have a limited time to make big money.

We should select BPA at 13. It could be a difference maker in the secondary or on the D line, or even a guard. Better yet, trade back if possible and select BPA at that point.

We need some holes filled but were not in a complete rebuild. The last thing Id do is make a reach pick for need.
trading back makes sense, according to Tandler and the point system, if they trade back 5 picks they get a 3rd round pick and if they go back 10 picks they could get a 2nd round pick- It could be even better if a QB slides

It needs to be a balanced approach...and right now we have options. I just worry about getting caught holding our dicks when are depth chart has major holes...dt,lg,online reserves, and rb....some reasonable talent on the board...demarco Murray, Hankins, Logan etc....and then you cross your fingers hoping the draft goes our way to get best player available while filling reasonable needs.

We can mitigate some cap by cutting McClain post June 1....I believe.

Im looking forward to the draft to see how this all works out because there happens to be some serious talent at places we need it the most.

McClain was such a liability last year.

Fingers crossed. If not, Phil Taylor again?

How about Luavo at LG?

Or worse...Fat Rob your starting RB

Hoping for the best...but those options above are unacceptable

Re: Redskins free agent signings 2018

Unless we draft all punters and kickers chances are several needs will be addressed

Lauvao is still unsigned... I don't see us bringing him back unless it's a cheap deal to compete with, hopefully, a LG we'd have drafted in the 2nd, or late in the 1st if we trade down.
If there's someone of Scherff caliber I wouldn't mind taking a G in the first, not at 13th but late round.

Re: Redskins free agent signings 2018

It def appears that nobody is wanting to pay Hankins what they are asking, he has not been offered a deal by any team yet. He will have to come down off that price before the draft and I bet he will.

Re: Redskins free agent signings 2018

With some reports of Jordan Howard hitting the trade market, has me thinking would you trade our 4th round pick for him? I doubt the Bears would take it so maybe a 4th and a 3rd next yr? Dude is a beast. Tough call IMO

I like Howard coming out and I was convinced this was our Pick a couple years ago in the 5th but the Bears picked him right before us. He a solid grinder. I think this is what we want Perine to be.

The issue is this...do we want a grinder (Chubb) (Ive heard we want a pounder from staff) but I think we want more of a pass catching, cut and go back (USC guy, Michel). Guice and Barkley do both...

I think Guice is the best option after Barkley but do we want to spend a 1st on a RB when we need a DT so bad?

I believe it's baseless rumor. As much as I love Howard (I had him on my fantasy football teams), I don't think he is worth our #1 pick although I would not oppose to giving up our #2 pick for him.

I'm getting tired of telling you guys we should draft Penny as our RB. You don't listen to me any more than my kids do.

Re: Redskins free agent signings 2018

What's the word on the TE out of Pitt.

6'5" 260. Looks strong.

We also signed a FB out of WVU. I don't understand signing a FB unless the vaunted Callahan run scheme is undergoing some changes.
