    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I can only guess that Perriman was brought in as Richardson insurance for the week. It seemed odd to roster 7 receivers and outside of Brian Quick, not sure any of them are any good on special teams. Now that it seems Richardson will play, I guess Floyd won out over Perriman to stay as Floyd's actually accomplished things in this league

    Pretty much. Not only that, but New England got a 7th rounder back. It's not even conditional anymore. You know New England's 5th is going to be towards the end of the round. Cleveland's 7th may or may not be early in the round, but it essentially nets to a mid-to-late sixth round pick. Not hard to top that offer if you really wanted to.

    Was Letting DJax Leave via FA a Mistake???

    No. I get the move. Both he and Garcon were older receivers coming off their second contracts. Both were poor bets to come close to being worth what they were paid in free agency. In fact, both already had poor 2017s. I get that DeSean Jackson has had a couple of big games to start this season. I get that the current roster of WRs isn't good. But I tend to think you only re-sign those players if they're truly elite (neither were) or you're competing for a Super Bowl (and let's face it, the Redskins aren't). Jackson may have good games here an there, but I don't think Tampa will get $35 million worth from Jackson and its not like Jackson was the difference between Super Bowl and not here.
  4. Seems a bit odd to waive Chesson to sign Perriman and Floyd. Not that Chesson is that great, but they seem to provide different things. One's a special teams player and the others are former first rounders who aren't very good (but still might be better than what we have)
  5. Not really sure that's a good comparison. Owens was getting consistent work through his age 37 season (and was pretty darn good in his last year). For comparisons, Art Monk's last really good year was at 34 (though he played into his age 38 season). Marvin Harrison retired after his age 36 season (and his last good year was at age 34 as well). Heck, even Steve Largent was done by age 35. But Dez Bryant is only 30

    Depends. In general players on IR are supposed to have a "major injury", i.e. an injury that would sideline said player at least six weeks. If that is not the case, the team is obligated to release the player when he is healthy. Not sure how long Sims is supposed to be injured. But I suspect the idea is that he's supposed to be out 6+ weeks and hence the IR designation. I doubt he's brought back
  7. I think its a combination of things. Lanier's injury wasn't severe enough and I suspect Lanier didn't want to stay on IR all year either. IR'd players can't practice or play. But we knew this was coming. If the team wanted to IR Lanier, they would have just done it. Like they did with Guice. But Lanier was waived. Or more technically waived/injured. I suspect it was some combo of the fact the team looks at Lanier as an expendable talent and/or is easily replaceable (he was sixth on the depth chart at DL and that's not including McGee). It also leaves open the possibility of bringing Lanier back later this season. And it saves on salary cap space.

    Cut-Down Day

    He appears to be a pure special teams guy. And I would say guys like that are easily disposable unless they're just so awesome at it (like maybe Steve Tasker good). I also suspect he may be cut after Week 1 to sign a veteran as their contracts no longer have to be guaranteed after Week 1.
  9. I'm kind of amazed how quickly some of these guys get dumped. Shimonek lasted one practice? Caushaud Lyons seemed to last not even that. Then all of a sudden the team decided they liked Holtz better. Even though Holtz had been in camp for the last month and they knew what they had? I doubt it matters on the back-end of a practice squad, but it is amazing how quick the churn is. I look forward to Jehu Chesson getting cut in a day or two.

    Cut-Down Day

    A couple of moves today... not clear who was cut (or if Marshall was IR'd). Also a practice squad move:
  11. Caushaud shows up to Redskins park and leaves....
  12. He's technically on IR right now, but probably to receive an injury settlement shortly and will have to sit out the amount of weeks he is paid for plus 3 to re-sign here
  13. Looks like Lyons' stop with Team #9 was short one

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I'll grant you it's not the end all, be all. Certain receivers (slot) tend to have higher rates than others. And your individual usage is obviously a factor. But when you're that far down the list, it's very concerning. Unless the excuse is Doctson was thrown way more uncatchable balls than any other receiver in the league. Which seems highly unlikely. And I'd say you're right, that other factors of bad WR work (like route running) will bleed into catch rate.

    The biggest concern about Doctson is his horrific catch rate. It was at 45% last year and slightly worse for his career with his brief 2016 stint. It was stated the only people with worse numbers over their first two years were Breshad Perriman and Corey Coleman. Not company you want to be in. Of course it's a bit of a small sample size as Doctson essentially missed 2016 and barely played the first 5 games of 2017. And he was really bad at the end, only 6 catches on 23 targets his last two games. Though he was only at 53% before those last few games. Which really isn't good. Doctson has room to improve, so hopefully he does. But woof, those aren't good numbers
