Redskins look at Randle El

By Ryan O'Halloran

THE WASHINGTON TIMES

February 27, 2006

INDIANAPOLIS -- If the Washington Redskins are able to rework enough contracts and cut enough players to get under the projected salary cap of $95 million by Thursday and then free up some more cash to sign a new player, Pittsburgh receiver Antwaan Randle El could be on their radar.

Randle El had 35 catches for 558 yards and a touchdown and returned 44 punts for a 10.2-yard average and two touchdowns last season. He threw a touchdown in the Super Bowl. The Redskins clearly need help at receiver, and their punt return game (28th in the NFL) was a season-long exhibition in short gains or fair catches.

Randle El is expected to be pursued by Chicago and Philadelphia. Pittsburgh would like to keep Randle El but not at the kind of price he will command on the open market.

COULD? COULD go after him?

What is this O'Halloran's personal opinion? Shouldn't the reporter do some work to see who they ARE looking at, not just some projection based on his own opinion? I come to this board to see read baseless projections...if he wants to write an article about who they are targeting maybe he should try and get a little inside info...I can get baseless projections off espn.com, gimme some real info...

Redskins look (?) at Randle El

Ryan thats some great JOURNALISM!!!! "Redskins Look at Randle El"

Where? When? How?

Nope....its If, Could, :blahblah:

Awesome article Ryan... Awsome! :jerk:

Oh yeah and the editor should be beaten with a 2x4 full of rusty nails for letting the headline read "Redskins Look At Randle El." He should have at least borrowed a "Could" from Ryan to insert in the headline. :silly:

You know, it's nice to see posts/articles like that, a month after I posted RANDLE EL as a deffinite fit for us. I remember getting hammared by many that I was crazy and other words."Remeber, the ones who stay quiet and see the big picture, when they speak it is a good idea to listen" IT"S ALL GOOD FOR THE REDSKINS GENERATIONS!

Lets see here....

Quote from Pittsburgh's Director of Football Ops Kevin Colbert - Check.

"I don't know if he priced himself out [of the our plans]," said Kevin Colbert, director of football operations for the Steelers. "We don't know the interest level, but we certainly have an interest in keeping Antwaan. Anytime you win a Super Bowl, it enhances your value, maybe artificially.

"Antwaan is a unique player. When you look at his sheer numbers, you're not going to be real impressed, but there's no doubt he was a big part of our success."

Quote from Cleveland's General Manager Phil Savage - Check.

"He's not a cookie-cutter receiver," Savage said. "He's a little different, and that's one thing I admire about what Pittsburgh has done. They've taken a Randle El and a Hines Ward and have known what to do with those guys. They've been creative."

Take the above quotes & run with 'Redskins Look At Randle El' headline without any direct quotes or proof on the matter - Brilliant! :doh:

if we have the cap space, he would be a great weapon on our offense. this offense would be very unpredictable and along with al saunders this offense could be on the verge of greatness. we could line up randel el as a fb or hback and offenses would not know what to do.

man...pretty pricey for a guy with 35 receptions.

he's pricey b/c he is actually a great player... he had semi mis leading stats hes a very talented player...who can make a huge difference... overall he made a big impact on the steelers team this year. he can do alot of things... and if im not mistaken i think he has a good size/strengh
