Doesn’t matter. Your narrative still doesn’t pass muster. Just because we aren’t making multiple blockbuster signings doesn’t mean we aren’t doing any thing. Just means we are doing it the right way for a change. We’ve addressed needs without making panic moves that will hurt us down the road while still making improvements. Not really sure what more people want. 🤷*♂️

Yes, Your Honor. If you ignore my occasional dumb-ass posts I promise to ignore yours.

Re: WFT Free Agency

I wouldn't give up a pick for Ertz, given that pick could bring in a #2 or even #1 TE itself and with abetter contract scenario. Agree, talk to him after he's cut but a trade makes little sense.

It was just my smart ass way to say that they have to fill the roster with depth, and there's nothing wrong with bringing in players they already scouted, drafted, are familiar with, and who they think can contribute.

I just don't get the disdain when coaches and GMs bring in guys they know. I mean it's not like they aren't looking elsewhere too. Lazy? Yeah, I don't think lazy is what got these guys to where they are, nor this team where it currently is.

Call it Panthers North, North North Carolina, Washington Panthers if you want...I don't care. As long as they are building a winner.

I wouldn't trade for him either, let him get cut. I bet he'll be chomping at the bit to play Philly twice a year and he'd be a great fit here, if healthy of course.

Happens everywhere in life, as the old saying goes it's not what you know, it's who.

Fans have this idea that you're only supposed to hire the most qualified person regardless of relationship. Just doesn't work that way, it's a people business and coaches prefers guys they know and trust. And when they do hire someone that isn't an ex-colleague or player, if you dig deep enough you'll likely find the connections.

Washington knows the draft can help in many areas it wants to fortify (OT, TE, LB). Like last offseason, a big key now is strengthening the depth in multiple areas.

Per Keim.


They again offered a top TE for the second year in a row missed. Tackle, LB and TE continues to be the focus.

Getting Ertz for a forth round pick and a short contract...I wouldn’t have a problem with.

I wonder if the backup center they just signed will become the long snapper.

@InstantRHIplay
Curtis Samuel said he wasn't concerned about there being no clear cut quarterback in Washington. He's focused on his job and making their job easier to throw to him.

Probably not. Long snapping has become such a specialized position I'm sure they will end up signing a true long snapper.

Absolutely. I had this thought as soon as he was cut.

Re: WFT Free Agency

I brought up Fisher earlier in the week. Definitely worth at least assessing. Achilles will make an evaluation tough though. He might remain an FA for a couple of months and be a reasonable pick up post draft?
