[quote=CRedskinsRule;1283689]I believe the FO is taking advantage of the new cba which allows 46 active IF the extra players are OL, up to 8. Also with a 17 game season, and several OL guys "prone" to injury, Scherff - Moses are 2 notable ones, the extra bodies along the OL will prove to be one of the best moves of our off season.[/quote]

Interesting. Yeah offenses really folded last year in Dallas, Philly and end of season with KC when Oline problems emerged.

Man that Oline room is gonna be large with these guys competing.

It is funny and a little odd that a career journeyman would take such offense, but oh well. The coaches have spoken on it too. Wonder if his ass is chapped at them too.

Bargain!

[B]Washington signed LT Charles Leno, formerly of the Bears, to a one-year, $5 million contract. [/B]
Leno, shockingly cut by Chicago in April, could replace the role vacated by LT Trent Williams two years ago. The Football Team used its second round draft pick this year on T Sam Cosmi, who could compete with Leno for the Week 1 starting job protecting Ryan Fitzpatrick's blindside. Pro Football Focus rated Leno the league's 26th best tackle in 2020. Washington had the NFL's third best pass-blocking offensive line in 2020, according to PFF.

I don't blame him, we've been hearing parrot report after parrot report that he's mad we're bringing in competition and completely ignoring the fact that he played very well last year.

Yes, we've all wanted the "next Trent Williams" but our O-Line ranked very well last season, especially Lucas. They're the last posotion group to blame for offensive struggles last season.

Love the signing! Leno is an upgrade over Lucas.

Re: Post Draft Free agency targets
 
Leno will likely win the LT job.

Where should we put Cosmi? Moses has RT locked down. Lucas will be the top backup unless he beats Leno out. Maybe start him at guard?

I suggest we include Scherff in a deal for Aaron Rodgers and move Cosmi to guard.

Scouring the planet:

The Washington Football Team is bringing in two Canadian players for workouts tomorrow, before the start of rookie minicamp: DB Nelson Lokombo, the No. 2 overall pick in the CFL draft last week, and OL Logan Bandy, drafted 38th overall, per source.

The talking heads clip described Lokombo as playing the boundary halfback. Does that equate to what was mentioned earlier.

More depth on the o line. Gotta love that. Whether Leno starts or not - i think he will - it is boosting the trenches. When you have both trenches run deep you win games.

Hell yes they are. That is the way you build a team from its foundation. Otherwise it is just a house of cards. We have a pretty damn solid foundation.

I like Leno's signing. We Washington fans of all should know the importance of quality OL depth.
I don't care who wins the job, let 'em compete, start the best man, keep the best men, regardless of draft position.
Saadhiq Charles never seemed to have NFL hands technique to me, I won't sweat one bit if he ends up being cut. Won't sweat either if Christian gets cut.
