5 million for a legit starting LT in the league, even as a backup is still worth it.

Lucas already played for us, and played pretty well. So I hope he gets a fair chance to win the job. And I hope that he does win it.

I like the Leno signing whether he starts or not.

Re: Post Draft Free agency targets

Scalper makes a good point about next year. Had we gone into this season with only Moses, Lucas, Charles and Sharpe as our top 3 T's, next year we'd have 2 serviceable guys at 30+, a seemingly injury prone prospect and a 25 yo average at best backup. And 2 of those guys would have to be resigned or allowed to walk. So of course we strengthen T this year.

But it seems to have been done with a view to next year too. Lucas could be gone assuming he makes the roster this year. Leno is on a 1yr deal. Moses could easily be gone next year. If Leno re-captures his pro bowl form he likely gets re-signed. That could well put Cosmi at RT next year. So subject to drafting a starting T next year, we have 2 starting T's on good deals, Charles hopefully able to back them up or even start on a good deal. If it all plays out it gives the FO the freedom to draft a T as BPA not as a need (I'd argue Cosmi borders on BPA but definitely was a need). That's potentially 4 T's with starting quality on team friendly deals.

And I agree, this signing right now could easily double as injury insurance for Charles or Moses.

Yeah the deck along the OL seems pretty stacked right now, seems like a little overkill but let's see how it goes. Ron must have a plan.

Re: Post Draft Free agency targets

Anyone actually able to work out our cap hit next year if we let every OL FA walk in March 2022? Got to be pretty low per head I would think, as it stands. No Moses, No Scherff...

Apparantly we signed McCain to a 1 year deal. No link.

McCain could start at FS, or play in the slot. Versatile. Apke is gone. Our DB group seems to have improved.

Without gushing joy and happiness, how refreshing that we have a FO that:

-self identifies weaknesses.
-uses all available avenues to find solutions
-doesn't blatantly overpay
-focuses on character AND skill level

Was this a perfect off season, maybe not, but it was by far the most professional offseason since Gibbs, and likely even before then.

Good, like the fact that this coaching staff if valuing quality characters/hard working guys but not getting 1 sec with fake sense of owing guys playing time because they worked hard. They're here to build a roster and win games.
We all loved Reaves' attitude/story, but if we got better options, I'm all for it.

Agreed; and to get two potential starters after the draft, and as you mentioned not overpaying for them. VERY refreshing to have a competent FO. Kudos to Rivera and company.

Re: Post Draft Free agency targets

I think something is happening that hasnít happened here in a long time.......other teams players and FAís want to play for us.
I think the combination of having a strong, young, talented defense and a great coaching staff is making Washington an attractive place where FAís now want to play here. Our roster is filing out...our FO is making smart moves. We have depth.
Cats and dogs are getting along.
Whatís next?

Key thing I note is the right kind of FA's.

Re: Post Draft Free agency targets

We had a great draft. After the draft, getting Patterson, Leno, and now McCain is bigtime. Absolutely love this offseason.

If Fitz works out and is consistent, we're going to be tough to beat this season. Defense should be awesome.

Hail WFT!

Those highlights are great. 1st one is an INT of Dak. He lays the wood in Metcalf too - that isnít easy. Love the attitude and swagger.

Our D is going to maul people. We need to elect to kick with every coin toss. We will give Fitzmagic a short field to start every game.

Honestly, there is NOTHING better than a D that destroys your opponent. Iíd rather watch a shutout 17-0 than see a 42-35 win any day.
