Re: Offseason Roster Moves Thread

If we could only sign one outside free agent, I'd take Austin Hooper.

Then in ideal world, I'm drafting Chase Young, a swing tackle, a CB, a FS, and another young TE.

Re: Offseason Roster Moves Thread

Hooper was known as a ST and blocker before breaking out as a pass catcher this year. I really want a do everything TE vs a Jordan Reed/Davis catch only type.

I think Atlanta and Chargers resign their guys. They are young, impact position and teams fans seem to really like them. Lots of interest around the league.

Unless one of these guys rejects their current teams reasonable offers bc they want to get the biggest contract they can ... I dont see them being available. Then if they do become available, it might be a feeding frenzy.

I think we need to come up with a plan B, bc while id love a Hooper or Henry, I just dont see it being realistic.

Plan A, B, C, and D...We just need to be smart and prepared. Last year going into the draft the plan was grab a TE, but we failed to do so. Keim stated that's the one position they really wanted to grab someone, but smartly, kept to their board.

We cant sit and wait for the draft...gotta have a plan in FA and draft for Tight End.

I believe the Chargers and Falcons resign their TEs

Eric Ebron in FA and Thaddeus Moss in the draft for TE

Re: Offseason Roster Moves Thread

More on Hooper:

Austin Hooper, tight end

Notable numbers: 75 receptions, 787 yards, six touchdowns, 96 targets, one drop, 313 yards after the catch, 41 first downs in 2019.

2019 earnings: $2.025 million

Quoting Hooper: ďIím not going to speak on [the contract situation] too much. Itís a business. Obviously I would like to be here. Iím open to coming back here. But I know that I havenít received an offer yet. If I do, Iíd definitely like to be here."

Projecting the outcome: The Falcons, with so much money tied up in top players such as Ryan, Julio Jones, Jarrett, and Deion Jones, will pass on signing Hooper to a lucrative extension and let him sign elsewhere. And Hooper will exceed $10 million per year with his new team. Meanwhile, the Falcons will see what they have in Jaeden Graham, who filled in nicely when Hooper was hurt this past season and is due to make $585,000 in 2020. The Falcons also will look hard at the draft class to find a potential pass-catching threat.

https://www.espn.com/blog/atlanta-fa...se-free-agents

Austin Hooper said he is open to coming back next year but acknowledged itís a business. Weíll see if the Falcons are able to re-sign him. #Falcons

Falcons fans responding to the tweet seem positive the team will Tag him if needed.

---------------

Ebron -- hes not a blocking TE from what I have seen and read, on top of having 50/50 hands ... there is nothing I like about Ebron tbh.

hard pass for me (thats knows little to nothing)

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/...-of-eric-ebron

^^ good comprehensive article on Ebron

Re: Offseason Roster Moves Thread

I'm not stressing about the TE position. Rivera knows it's importance so I think that will be addressed not only in the draft but in free agency as well.

I'm hoping we see the rebirth of a Fullback/H-back on the team.

Are we drafting Moss because he's a quality player who wouldn't cost a premium draft pick or are we drafting him because of his last name? I don't know anything about him but if we're drafting him because of his last name he better be a genetic freak like his dad was.

Have watched him, he is a quality player who wouldnt cost a premium draft pick, he has great hands. 4th or 5th round he should be there. The fact that he is Randy Moss's son is just a bonus. He's 6'3" 250lb, he can run well enough.

Re: Offseason Roster Moves Thread

Ebron would be a solid pick up but at the right price, I'd also like Hooper.

Re: Offseason Roster Moves Thread

I did some research on Hooper and I'm starting to warm up to the idea of signing him although I'm still not 100% convinced that he can make a big difference for Redskins. The bottom line is, with the new staff in Redskins FO, I trust them to make right decision on the TE position. If they think Hooper (or any other TE options) is the guy we should go after, then go for it.

Re: Offseason Roster Moves Thread

I didn't actually realise we had 7 TE's on the roster, including the PS. I reckon we'll go after one in FA (and I prefer Hooper over Ebron) and see if we get lucky in the lower rounds, bring up to 7 into camp (assuming Reed and Davis are gone). I just hope they get a decent blocker somewhere in there.

Maybe even a Kittle clone in the mix. Never mind his receiving credentials, his run blocking for the 49ers has been fantastic.

Hooper and Thaddeus Moss would make a compelling set of TE's. Moss looked awfully good on the receiving end of Joe Burrow passes.

Adding new blood and top talent to the TE position will greatly help Haskins and the offense. Weíll turn around our terrible Red Zone percentage. The team spent huge cap money for TE players in 2019 and they were always hurt. What we finished with at the end of the season was scrubs at the bottom of the barrel.

Time for a major reset. I think this will be the #1 priority for Redskinís FA.
