While not in favor of it, I wouldn't hate trading down but it'd have to be for a massive haul of picks.

Re: NFL Free Agent Signings 2020

The one thought that gnaws at me when I consider the idea of trading down is "What if we draft Chase Young and he is seriously injured"? The idea that we could have three or more good players instead of one great player is a bit comforting to me but solely because it seems to me to be much less likely that all of those players would be seriously injured at the same time. But that's the conservative part of me.

The football fan part of me wants to go for it and take Chase because great edge rushers create havoc for opposing offenses. They make their entire team better.

The Redskins fan part of just loves to watch Chase play football! I challenge you put on some Redskins gear, get your mind in a game day mood, and then honestly tell me you don't want to see this young man in B&G. It can't be done.

Re: NFL Free Agent Signings 2020

Looking at the QB field in this draft, the top 4 or 5 guys could be legit franchise QBs, or they could be busts. Unlikely Burrow is a bust, but i remember Ryan Leaf, so... Tua could be another Luck with injuries destroying his career. There's a little drop off to the next 2 or 3, but nothing major at this stage.

So, would you really give up 3 #1 picks for Burrow or Tua, or even Young? I can't see it myself given that you are likely able to draft at least one of the 5 with one of those picks. I can maybe see Miami trading 2 to the Lions to take their spot if with either of the top 2 guys are still there at #3, which I'd say is likely, but giving up all 3 to move up to 1st just seems overkill under the circumstances. But stranger things have happened...

Re: NFL Free Agent Signings 2020

If I was Miami I'd trade those picks for Burrow or Tua, again if you don't have a QB you won't win consistently , yeah you may have a good year or 2 but it won't last

NFL Free Agent Signings 2020

The only team that trades draft picks away is: Washington. See RG3 deal. We just traded away a fifth for an XFL player. We can’t get serious offers for really good players like Dunbar and Williams. Teams hold onto their picks.

I still think the best course of action is for the Redskins to resign Williams and Dunbar. We have PLENTY of cap space. I know Rivera wants change the culture to the “right attitude”. But even the Patriots signed guys in FA who basically were there to get a ring and some FA money.
The Redskins do not have enough draft picks to change the team overnight. They can bend a little here and get us a “win, win”.

Let’s face it, both Williams and Dunbar just want to play with some guaranteed money in their contract. Neither had ANY guaranteed money in their last year of their contract, so if they got injured - they didn’t get paid. In the last two years the Redskins have been one of the NFL’s MOST HIGHLY INJURED TEAM, so who could blame them for wanting some guaranteed money?. Now I know there’s some posters who say, “he signed the contract, now play for it”. That’s the sort of attitude that Bruce Allen had and lead for both the players & agents HATING BRUCE and lead to Williams, one of the best Redskin’s player, sitting out a season.

Building a culture works both ways. Give Williams and Dunbar some guaranteed money and they’ll be loyal players to Rivera’s vision. WE HAVE THE MONEY. It’s two less positions that have to be filled by Kyle Smith in this draft. Or at least Kyle can draft an EVENTUAL replacement for Williams and Dunbar, instead of having to find a starter at their level right from the get go , which is pretty rare in the lower strata of the Redskin’s picks.

I think it will be a while till the stench Snyder and his cast of idiots have left on the team will fade. I thought the Browns were considered the bottom of the NFL barrel the last 20 years, I guess not.

Re: NFL Free Agent Signings 2020

Browns are better than us, better QB (so far) and better OL. Can't really blame him there

I'm not that upset about Hooper, I was just saying they are better right now than the skins.. Not being negative it's just true

I solely meant the constant snarky swipes at Haskins.

Wow

For the record: Cooper and Hooper chose other places. Not a great start to the new regime.

So much for the narrative we were never serious pursuing Hooper. We did and he said I’d rather be a brown
