Agreed.

Feels like we're not asking ourselves why he's sitting at home right now, and it's not because of kneeling (which has been a complete non-issue this season). If he was good enough he would've been signed by now.

Thats what I thought to, honestly I thought he had been out of the league for 2 years now. Then I looked up his stats ..

2019 - 124 tackles, 4 sacks, 6 PD

Im fine adding him or not adding him.

Perhaps Ron only offering a PS spot with no guarantees was him keeping his commitment to the guys who have been with him, practicing, studying and working out and letting them know that their work and commitment to him wont easily be set aside by immediately giving a new guy their starting spot.

You have to earn it mantra. And if you do what is asked of you, you wont be tossed aside like a week old towel.

Free-agent Eric Reid: Declined Washington practice squad offer

Jeez I gotta agree with Reid, hes not a practice squad player. Woulda liked to see him on the squad.
I feel like Coach Rivera is doing the right thing and giving the guys on the roster and on the practice squad the first shot to earn it. This shows strong loyalty to the team and sends the right message. Not bringing in an outsider right away.
If one of the existing safety's is not good enough then they cut that guy and bring in Eric Reid. Reid will most likely be there if we need him in a few weeks.
I think Reid wants to be here and we would be ok with him here.

No one else made him an offer and he still said no to us. If he's that full of himself that he won't work his way up with a coach he knows, we do not want him. He has always been a "look at me" type of guy.

Not sure why Rivera even reached out to him, he's not the type of person we want in the culture Coach is trying to create here.

Re: Buyers, Sellers, Both, or Neither?

I'm fine with Reid remaining at home.

I'm actually interested to see what Del Rio can do with this young group of DBs. Eight of the nine DBs on the roster are 26 or younger, with Everett being the elder at 28 (Curl - 21).

Me too, Chief (soon to be Alpha Male X Phackter). You know, as in Red Wolves.

C'mon, Man! Why in the world would he want to accept a paltry Taxi Squad salary? I wouldn't accept that offer and I'm the most modest guy you'll ever meet.

I doubt Dan would even trade him, even if RK was begging them to do so. He's one of his "core" Redskins.

Re: Buyers, Sellers, Both, or Neither?

I really hope Kerrigan plays his whole career here.

Why trade a player who's still contributing as much as he is?

Even part time, he's making an impact. Also, a youth movement is a good thing, but we do need to retain some veteran leadership.

But I certainly wouldn't offer him with a #2 for Darnold; too many unknowns.

Darnold would be a hard pass from me. Why would the Jets make that move anyway?

Re: Buyers, Sellers, Both, or Neither?

I don't see Darnold's ceiling being much higher than Allen's really...he's going to give you turnovers as well...so no need to give up a 2nd when we already have that guy. Listening to Kevin and Cooley...they think as long as Allen can be serviceable, they'll roll with him and keep building the team...which I agree with.
