Fair enough but maybe this time it will be a positive cowboy for once.

Yeah Scandrick really was my least favorite signing this offseason.
3.5M/y is not crazy high, but this is also our most poorly negotiated contract this year IMO.

I think Scandrick is the veteran / known commodity. I don't love the signing but I don't mind it (btw, surprised that DRC is still available).

Anyway, we have no idea if the others are Amerson-2015 horrible or not. Scandrick at least we know what we're getting and has more than 1 game experience in the secondary. If a young CB outplays him and he doesn't play who cares, he's essentially the insurance for the secondary.

Adonis Alexander’s fit on Washington Redskins roster unclear

Re: Redskins Select Adonis Alexander in 6th Round of Supplemental

This raises great points - if Adonis makes the roster which CBs get bumped?

I've seen Scandrick's name mentioned as a guy that could get bumped off the roster but I think that's ridiculous. He's not only going to start outside in base defense but he'll also move inside in nickel situations when Dunbar or Moreau come in to take the 2nd outside spot. Scandrick and Norman will definitely see the most playing time of all our CBs.

I think it's clearly Holsey on the bubble. He's 5'10" and just hasn't done much aside from special teams.

Dunbar was just extended so it won't be him. Moreau was so valuable as a gunner on teams that he'll be kept for that reason alone, nevermind his upside as a 4.3 CB with length. It's obviously Holsey whose job is very much in jeopardy, as it should be. He wouldn't make a lot of NFL rosters.

I think the FO is simply overcompensating for Fuller's loss. They don't want his loss to overshadow what AS brings to the team. I think it's clear that we should have young talent to develop, and that the practice squad is an option for several of the young guys.

Re: Redskins Select Adonis Alexander in 6th Round of Supplemental

And speaking honestly about Scandrick, the Redskins surely know that he's a solid but not great player. Hence the $ amount they spent on him.

If one of the young corners ascends, I don't think they'd think of Scandrick being in their way. If Moreau for example makes a leap in training camp then they'll play him over Scandrick.

I'm with CRed, the Scandrick signing could be looked at as overcompensating, or it could be looked at as an insurance policy. Scandrick is not Fuller, but he's not bad, and they're stacking up young guys in hopes one of them makes the leap.

Until they make the leap though, you need a guy who you can rely on as serviceable. That, and you can never, ever have too many corners.

Yeah Scandrick is clearly insurance, I just feel like we could've found a little cheaper insurance, but I may be wrong. Or, let me put it this ways: our others signings, like Paul Richardson or Zach Brown, I felt were good deals for us, and pretty smartly structured too.
Scandrick's is just meh, and so is his price.

Holsey is the one whose spot is the hottest for sure. I think we keep him on TS.

Re: Redskins Select Adonis Alexander in 6th Round of Supplemental

Scandrick quality of play is an issue but his health is a bigger one. Hopefully he contributes and I def think he won’t get cut unless he is an absolute bum.
We got lotta young guys with different skill sets fighting for positions and an outstanding coach...our investment on the dline will help. Looking forward to camp.

Re: Redskins Select Adonis Alexander in 6th Round of Supplemental

Can Moreau play the slot? I'd prefer Dunbar and Norman to start on the outside with Moreau starting in the slot and serving as next man up on the outside with Scandrick bumping to the slot if needed.

I'd imagine this is Norman's last year here. Hopefully Alexander will be ready to serve as backup on the outside and Stroman can start in the slot in 2019. Then we would have Moreau and Dunbar on outside with Stroman in slot.

If these young guys show something in camp Scandrick is gone. He is not a lock to make the team.

Nonsense. Barring a major injury Scandrick makes the team.

Because he is unreliable health wise, past prime skill wise. Its not hate, just skeptical...Im ready for camp cause Gray will sort out the log jam....no doubt. Decisions will be based on performance...I really like the group of guys we have in the secondary as a whole...

Scandrick, Dunbar and Moreau is gonna be a nice battle. Moreau's upside...im excited to see how he plays. Camp is gonna be fun this year with all the young talent.
