Re: D.J. Swearinger released

Too early to tell on Apke.

Seems that fans never learn when it comes to judging players in their rookie years.

he was brought in to lift the defense...he hasn't. he has to squeeze the int sunday, he has to tackle cooper in dallas, he hasn't made these plays.

Safety is a problem again with HaHa and Swearinger both gone. Montae facing a likely suspension and has been injured in some capacity his first 2 years in the league. Apke garbage pick, cant play...he couldn't play in college.

lotta work there.

I don't think so. He is a workout warrior.

No instincts at all.

Couple things...the Free Agency class is solid and the Draft class has some players.

Also look at the trend lately, there were some decent guys late into free agency.

You could go get a solid player like Tre Boston for cheap or maybe spend a little more and get Honey Badger.

Swearinger and HaHa not working out could be a blessing in disguise. But again, do I trust the worst NFL executive in the league to improve the team?

Fair, but at this point in his career, he isn't going to have much of an opportunity to develop football instincts.

Training camp and pre-season are going to be his chances to develop, not show what he has.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbs...enn-state/amp/

His scouting report is what he has shown in the NFL so far. Not saying it's impossible, but drastic improvement is definitely an uphill struggle.

I think only playing safety 1 year in college really hurts him. He doesn't have that repetition and muscle memory.

There are a TON of top tier safeties available in FA. All 30 or younger. Earl Thomas, Landon Collins, LaMarcus Joyner, Tyrann Mathieu.

I think theyll look there to address it, and maybe give HHCD a full offseason to work in the defense before giving up on him.

Im still kinda butthurt we didnt draft Collins especially since he grew up idolizing ST. I know he wasnt the type of safety we were looking for at the time but... come on.

Re: D.J. Swearinger released

Problem with HHCD is he's a free agent, so you can't just give him another test run.

If the Skins gave up a pick to get him, Id think theyre interested in keeping him longer than a half season rental.

You think that hell still command top dollar considering Green Bay just dumped him, and hes played so poorly in Washington?

Im hoping they can sign him to a reasonable deal considering all of that, and with the Bama connection.

I think it all depends if we drop Manusky (praying they do) then who comes here to coach defense. If they see HaHa workin within their scheme, I wouldn't be opposed.

sidenote...if there was every a time to go base 4-3, its now. Our personnel lines up nice

Im sure the hope was hed come in an ball out but he didnt so they can let him walk and get a compensatory pick in return.

Id guess theyll let him test the market and go from there.

Well, theyll be looking for a corner too, because you can bet Norman will be gone as well.
