  1. I'd agree on McKissic. He was clearly brought in to do be a third down back. And I don't see anyone on this roster who can replicate that effectively. Peterson and Barber are not that guy. Unless Love (who also has to get healthy) has made huge strides in this area, he's not that guy. I don't think its realistic to expect Gibson to be that guy next year. A third down back needs to know how to block and Gibson didn't even play the position in college. That's a tall order. The closest player to being an effective 3rd down back is probably Guice. He's not McKissic good as a receiver, but can hold down the position. But he has his own durability issues. Maybe the word lock is too strong for McKissic, but he's close. He'd have the largest dead cap hit of any RB if cut, so the team does seem to be counting on him for next season
  2. So did Sims. Apparently, it's what good receivers do.
  3. Thompson already signed with Jacksonville
  4. The comment was meant somewhat in jest. But my simple point was that if a player was good, fans would actually learn to spell their names correctly. Obviously it doesn't mean players can't become good (how random people on the internet spell has nothing to do with a player's talent), but does mean said players haven't "arrived" if fans can't even be bothered to learn their names (and yes, it's just a segment of the fans, but still...). Though I feel like I being trolled when you spell every player's name wrong.

    Jamal Adams- trade possibility?

    It's largely moot. If Ramsey doesn't extend before then, he'd just be franchise tagged anyhow. He won't be a really free agent next season either way.
  6. The fact the team's second best receiver at this point is Steve Sims and half the fans still misspell his name is not a great sign for the strength of the receiving corps. It is definitely not a proven group and while you could argue the upside, I'd hope any team ranked that low at least had some younger players with upside. It's McLaurin and then a whole lot of who knows for the Redskins. I think one would be hard pressed to find another team with less. Jacksonville ranked 31st in the same ranking and they have D.J. Chark (put up similar numbers to McLaurin in 2019), Chris Conley (over 700 yards in 2019), Dede Westbrook (over 700 yards in 2018 and over 650 in 2019), and just drafted their own Antonio Gibson like player in second rounder Laviska Shenault Jr. I didn't even mention Keelan Cole, who had 748 yards as an undrafted free agent in 2017 (but has since tailed off, a cautionary tale that not all young players progress forward). Tight end is weaker, though Jacksonville at least has some promise in Josh Oliver. He was picked 69th overall in 2019.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I hear Brian Quick is available
  8. Any number of reasons. Maybe he feels he's innocent. Or even the possibility he is innocent. The charges aren't that serious (though clearly show stupid decisions), so maybe the team feels its not a "cuttable" offense. Maybe the team really, really likes him. Or maybe give it a few hours and he will get cut once the team does its own due diligence.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Technically the Skins started 2019 with 5 running backs, as Shaun Wilson made the initial 53. He was immediately IR's though. Oddly, it marked the 2nd straight year the team started with 5 RBs (in 2018 Byron Marshall made it as a fifth RB before getting IR'd. The other 4 were Rob Kelley, Adrian Peterson, Samaje Perine, and Chris Thompson). Just as a fun exercise, here's the dead cap money for cutting each RB: J.D. McKissic - $1,000,000 Adrian Peterson - $750,000 Derrius Guice - $691,612 Peyton Barber - $600,000 Bryce Love - $565,749 Everyone else is zero, though Antonio Gibson hasn't signed a deal yet.
  10. There's a pretty big gap between the $10 million a year Ryan wants and signing Colvin to what is likely close to a veteran minimum deal (I haven't seen anyone report the numbers). This team could use viable bodies at CB, so on that part I agree. But that's likely shopping for a BMW and they just buying a Kia. They're really not close to being the same.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Anyone has a shot. Hall seems like a long-shot, but after Terry McLaurin, Steven Sims Jr., Kelvin Harmon, and Antonio Gandy-Golden it seems pretty wide open. There's 1-2 spots available (counting Antonio Gibson in the RB group) and not any stand out options. A guy like Cody Latimer, with 6 years experience and a special teams background, seemed like one of the better bets. That was pre-arrest. Trey Quinn is also here, but an oft-injured back-up slot receiver isn't the most exciting option. Can any of the other names make an impact? The opportunity is there.
  12. Considering he basically signed for the vet minimum with little signing bonus, it wouldn't be much of a hit to cut him. He was far from a lock to make the final 53 anyhow, but the receiver corps is pretty thin and he seemed more likely than most of the "field" to gain a spot. I'm guessing this won't help, even though the charges don't appear super serious compared to some other charges (like say Dunbar's)

    2021 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I don't expect the Redskins to be particularly good in 2020. But I also doubt the team sucks like in 2019. A record like 6-10 seems more likely, which would put the team out of the picture for the real elite guys in the draft. So I wouldn't get too into all these top guys

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    Largely I think AP dictates whether AP makes this team. If he's still the player he's been the last two years, then he makes it. But if he slips, which you kind of expect at 35, then he may be gone. Frank Gore was 36 last season. He's probably the closest player to compare to Peterson in more recent times. You could go all the way back to Riggins, who was still pretty good at 35. But mediocre at 36 and then done. Virtually every other major RB was done by 35. It's rarefied air and you really can't expect anything for certain. I get the feeling Barber was brought in as AP insurance. You really don't need both and Barber doesn't bring that much to the table other than depth. He's been in the league for a few years and has gotten carries. And is competent enough to fill-in. But he had a frigid free agent market, so teams aren't exactly knocking down the door for him. Barber's skillset is basically an inferior AP. But if AP slips, then maybe Barber ends up the better option.
  15. He's not a weapon as of now. Is that a better wording? it is possible for him to develop. Yes. Is it likely? No. You certainly can't count on it at this point, otherwise every rookie is a "weapon" until proven otherwise.
