Seems like too much money. Guess we'll have to wait until the specifics of the deal become clearer. I would wager that this means the end of Marco Coleman's days here.

GOOD CATCH BROWN!!!<br /><br />AT last soem real news to debate!!<br /><br />I think we got rooked!! Twenty million for a LEFT DE that isn't a pass rusher??? That seems liek an awful lot of loot to me. Guess we really are desperate though.<br /><br />Looks like no Blake (fine with me) and no Sam Adams (OUCH!!!). I wonder how much the signing bonus was?<br /><br /> </font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif"> Redskins get defensive help with addition of Wynn<br /><br />--------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br />By John Clayton<br />ESPN.com<br /><br /> <br />The Redskins, who spent less than $2 million in signing bonuses combined on their first five free agents, made their biggest free agent acquisition Thursday by agreeing to a six-year, $20 million contract with Jaguars defensive end Renaldo Wynn.<br /><br />Wynn was a first-round choice of the Jaguars in 1997 and was considered one of the best remaining players in free agency. He had been pursued by the Saints, Seahawks, Packers and others before reaching agreement with the Redskins.<br /><br />The 6-foot-3, 288-pound end was a cap casualty of the Jaguars in February. Last year he renegotiated an option clause into his Jaguars contract that would make him a free agent this season.

this move for Wynn and others to sign offensive linemen like Semple before the draft could indicate that the Redskins are going to use the #1 draft choice on a receiver.<br /><br />I could still see the Redskins using the #2 for a DT or OG, but now that top pick to me looks more and more like the spot to take a playmaker on offense.

No word on the signing bonus -- that's the only money that matters.<br /><br />Considering Smith is 87 years old, Coleman is all but gone (unless he takes a drastic pay cut), and we have no one to play alongside big daddy, Wynn can play all four spots solidly, if unspectacularly. Not a bad pick up.<br /><br />Dear God let us draft a bonafide DT early this draft.

It all depends on the amount of the signing bonus in determining if the team got value. Given the team's tendency this offseason, I would wager that it is relatively modest.<br /><br />It seems fairly comparable to the contract Lang got with the Browns. And Wynn is an upgrade over Lang, no question.

This was written after he was drafted by the Jags:<br /><br /> </font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Round 1 - Pick 21 - Renaldo Wynn - DT - Notre Dame - 6-3, 288<br />Wynn shot up the draft board in recent weeks thanks to strong individual workouts. Has tremendous speed and strength and keeps getting bigger and stronger. Has the body of a defensive tackle but the quickness to play outside. Works hard and continues to learn how to shed blockers and recognize plays. Is almost a can’t miss quality player thanks to his work ethic and athleticism. <br /><br />Summary: Will immediately push both John Jurkovic and Don Davey for playing time and should be a starter early in the season. As I said two years from know The Jaguars are going to be happy that Gilbert Brown wanted to keep his one dimensional game in Green Bay.

Renaldo Wynn of the Jacksonville Jaguars knows that first hand. In 1996, Wynn was going about his business as a college football player when his thoughts and attitudes about life began to change. The reason? Friends and teammates were praying for him and, according to James 5:16 (the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective), God was beginning to convict him. Not long after, Wynn, who became the highest-drafted defensive lineman ever by the<br />Jaguars when he was selected with the 21st overall pick in the 1997 draft, began considering the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. "Ï remember thinking ‘am I going to have any fun once I get saved?’" Wynn said. <br /><br />It didn’t take long to get his answer. "I’ve had more fun than I ever thought I would," said the 280-pound Wynn, who was named to several All-Rookie teams after he 1997 season. "The things I used to do I didn’t want to do anymore, " he said. The wealth and fame of a National Football League career wasn’t the reason for his fulfillment any longer—a relationship with God was. "Now, I’m full of joy, everlasting joy no one can take away from me." <br /><br />Wynn is preparing for his fourth NFL season, improving as a player and experiencing a deeper walk in his faith in Christ. He now finds himself praying for others, the way his teammates and friends did for him a few years ago. "God is using me as a tool to help them know Christ, coming to Christ and to be saved," Wynn said. "It’s a wonderful thing, praying for these guys..." <br /><br /> </font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif"><a href="http://www.christiansportsminute.com/renaldo_wynn.htm" target="_blank">http://www.christiansportsminute.com/renaldo_wynn.htm</a>

I agree we need DT's but let's look at this as a process.<br /><br />First we get Wynn at 27 to start at LE and that allows us to release Marco Coleman and free up $3.5 million after June 1.<br /><br />With either the #1 or #2 pick we get a DL prospect capable of contributing in 2002.<br /><br />Then we go out and sign a younger veteran who was a post June 1 cap casualty with some of that extra $3.5 million.<br /><br />That way we get Wynn, another veteran younger than Coleman and a high draft choice to go with Wilkinson and Smith.<br /><br />Depending on who we get with that pick and what other veteran we can sign (which we won't know for awhile) we could end up with a good defensive line and one both much younger and with better size than the one we had last season.<br /><br />Depending on the upfront dollars, Wynn is a better bet on the DL right now than Kenard Lang was.<br /><br />Wynn played the spot last year I think he will play here.<br /><br />Lang on the other hand is being counted on to move to a position in Cleveland that he has not played in TWO years.<br /><br />And the last time Kenard played defensive end he struggled against the run and showed no greater pass rush ability than Wynn did last year. <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="smile.gif" /> <br /><br />Let's face it. This was a one for one trade, Wynn for Lang.<br /><br />Both were #1 picks in 1997, both were UFA's and both signed for around the same money.<br /><br />And both are projected to play the same position.<br /><br />Wynn to me is an upgrade at 6'3 and 290 because he is stronger at the point of attack in stopping the run, something we have not had at both end spots in quite a while.

Depending somewhat on the signing bonus, this seems like a superb pick-up. Basically, he's a younger Marco Coleman. Yeah, we need DT, but we'll never possibly be able to afford Adams, so fill the DE spot when you can. This probably does kill any Blake signing, but I can deal with that.

I don't think the Redskins are going to run a 3-4 but Wynn seems to have the skills to play DE in that scheme. He has good size at 290 and good quickness and can anchor the the line against the run on his side.<br /><br />Whether Wynn and other DL are going to look at the 3-4 as a preferred scheme, that is another story.<br /><br />Some guys careers are made in a 3-4 but the scheme is limiting for players that see themselves as playmakers because everything flows to the linebackers.<br /><br />That is the biggest reasons you won't see it here.<br /><br />Both Wilkinson and Smith are misfit for the 3-4 based on their style of play. <br /><br />Remember that when Smith was in the 3-4 in Buffalo he carried a lot more weight on him. He is now around 265 but was up to almost 295 when he came out of school and was as big as 280 until a couple of seasons ago.<br /><br />You could move Wilkinson outside to end in a 3-4 and bring in a guy to play the nose, but playing end was one of the reasons Daddy forced the Bengals to trade him.......he wanted to go back to tackle in the 4-3.

Bulldog - Actually, I think this is a 2 for 2 trade. I think it's Wynn and Adams for Lang and Coleman. All in all I think that's a very good tradeoff.<br /><br />I was probably the most skeptical about signing Adams as anyone on this board. Now it's virtually certain Coleman will be released and if the Skins do in fact free up $3.5 million... that's going to Sam Adams. I couldn't be more certain of it.
