    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    I too would hope he retires.....I would hope the people around him can convince him to hang it up.

    Norman released

    I would not bring Norman back....he is not focused on football, he has proven that he wants to be an entertainer off the field. At this point in his career he lacks motivation to play the game. If he gets that fire back then he could be more than serviceable, but it would be a hard pass for me right now.
  3. I think everyone is forgetting how talented and hard working this kid is. He was a receiver in college and has worked hard to master his craft. Dunbar is still getting better and don't forget he was a core special teams player before taking the leap in production. However, he's a 28 year old corner who has an injury history. I would trade him for a 3rd and if we are lucky a 2nd....other than that, let the contract play out and if all else fails, trade him at the trade deadline or during the draft.
  4. It would be another Paul RIchardson signing.....I wouldn't waste money on a guy who is average in the league unless it is a tick above vet minimum. I would rather wait for free agency to clear and search the bargain bin like Bruce Allen was known for rather than getting stuck with a mediocre athlete who will be pushing 30.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I'm not very impressed with Curtis Weaver. I think if he lost some bad weight he could be a pretty productive player but right now he carries some bad weight, has good hands and is a real football player, but his athleticism is lacking and it really showed when they played FSU. My guy is Javon Kinlaw. That kid right there reminds me of Bruce Smith. I think he's going to be a stud and if he drops some weight he's going to be a force.
  6. I am pulling for Marcus Mariota. He's the culture guy you want in the locker room and he may even have a chance to start if Dwayne really screws up.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I agree.....Peppers for one is a true football player and has the agility and acceleration to play in space. I think Simmons is quite overrated because he can line up at different positions but is not very good at any position. Can't set the edge, not strong enough to stack and shed lineman, and doesn't have the agility to match up with slot receivers. I wouldn't waste a top 5 pick on him. I would much rather pick him up in free agency after 4 years of having him struggle to learn a position. Isaiah Simmons is far too risky of a prospect. Tall and strong kid who can jump but doesn't impress me as a football player.

    Say it ain't so Montae...

    I am ready for Apke to get an opportunity, but Nicholson is under contract through 2020 so I say let him compete. But with all honesty....we need a leader, ball hawk and a guy who can tackle and brings experience and respect. Remedy: ERIC WEDDLE Weddle would be in my top 5 FA priorities this offseason.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I have no clue why Moss has declared for the draft....he will probably go undrafted. I saw Dane Brugler had Moss rated as the #24 ranked draft eligible player in the National Championship Game. Ranked #24 between LSU and Clemson!!!! I guess we can give him a look as a UDFA. Not a very smart move on his part. Luckily his dad is making straight cash homie.
  10. If Kyle is pulling the trigger on these players then I am extremely happy with what is going to happen at Redskins Park. I hope we continue to draft well and most importantly I hope we have a few more hits in free agency. We have been very good in the bargain bin of free agency with acquisitions like Zach Brown, Adrian Peterson, Pot Roast, Vernon Davis, DJ Swearinger and even Terrell Pryor even though he didn't produce here. We have also had big splashes like DJax, Norman, and Landon Collins. But from what we are hearing I think Kyle is going to be in charge of deciding who is going to be on this roster and Rivera is going to decide who is going to be on the game day roster. Rivera stated that he just wants to be in charge of the 46 man roster for game days.
  11. Personally I think Schaffer could be replaced much easier. He is a money man and Doug brings more relationships to the table. Doug has been known as a NFL icon and he has build a lot of trust in NFL circles. Plus he knows football, he knows players, and I honestly would have been pissed if Doug was shown the door. I honestly think Dan probably stepped in to assure Doug stayed OR Doug just wanted to stay bad enough to take which looks like a demotion on paper but probably not in the checkbook.
  12. Before we hired Ron I was hoping that Kerrigan could squeak out another game or two and break the Skins sack record then trade him the offseason. However, Rivera wants to build a winning culture and Kerrigan is likely going to be that leader he will be looking for. Kerrigan was a dominant DE in college and I am sure he is chomping at the bit to put on some extra weight and get in the backfield on the regular. Really excited about Kerrigan finishing his career as a Skin hopefully....well at least for another season. Also, Settle will get plenty of opportunities, he gets up field quickly, but I view him more as a 3 technique DT. But he can really play anywhere you want in the interior of the line.
  13. Understandable.......I think I felt deeply about it because he was an amazing hire. We haven't had a ton of good quality coaches. Plus I thought it was always huge that Tomsula had a front seat to work with those guys at the combine as well. Again, I guess we just have to have faith in Rivera and Del Rio...i'm sure they will oversee this talented group.
  14. Devastating news........truly devastating. That Cowboys front is going to look much better. Their linebackers are already phenomenal, they will probably get Richard back as a demoted coach and he might even coach the secondary under Mike Nolan. On top of that they just acquired Fassel. Not very happy about the Cowpukes coaching staff. Talented team with talented coaches = headache for the division.

    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    Agreed....KOC most likely didn't impress whether it was on the chalk board or if he just wasn't committed to staying for a few season. Regardless, we have a young coach in Turner who will likely not be coveted at least for 3 plus seasons. Turner equals stability and will certainly bring along some struggles, but he will be here for a while. Hopefully he can bring his father in as a Sherman Lewis-type offensive consultant.....or bring in an experienced QB Coach who can help coordinate the passing game. It's still early and we have a few more positions to fill, hoping for a lot more experience.
