Fire Up Redskins One

The NFL Free Agency period starts this Friday @ 12:01AM. After sitting idling last year, speculation has Redskins One ready to roll this year. But if I’m the one calling the shots, that plane is never getting near Haynesworth. We have Golston(RFA) and Montgomery at DT, 2 players that are getting better and entering their primes. Griffin will be back as well. The defense was 8th in the league against the rush, so dropping 100 million on one player doesn’t make any sense. So, where am I spending the Redskins money? Take a look.

CB – Deangelo Hall
He played well last year and I think he would like to be back, and the Skins want him back. But at what price?
Backup option : Bryant Mcfadden
Don’t touch: Bly or Mcalister…keep Springs, he’s better.

OLB – Bart Scott
With the release of Marcus Washington the Skins have a hole here. HB Blades is a solid backup, but not an every down player.
Backup option: Moving Jason Taylor around more and utilizing his talents would make this signing unnecessary. Drafting Brian Orakpo is an option as well (though I don’t think he’s available without trading up.)

DE – Chris Canty
This is a big MF’er. 6’7″ 300lbs. He may not ever be a superstar, but a solid 8-10 sack guy. He went to VA, so he’d probably be interested in playing for DC.
Backup option: Demetric Evans

OT – Mark Tauscher
Oh man would Jordan Gross have been awesome or what? Tauscher is the best option available at a position that needs help. Quickly.

OG – Pete Kendall
Kendall has been a consistent player for the Skins the past couple years. He’s getting up their in years, but probably has 2 more seasons in him. I’d like to see him back.
Backup option: Mike Goff has been opening holes for Tomlison in SD for years and is a solid option if you can’t resign Kendall.

WR – Reggie Williams or Bryant Johnson
No big splash here, just a big bodied #3/4 WR that can catch an 8 yd slant on 3rd and 7.
Backup option: We can wait to see how Malcom Kelly turns out.

QB – Jeff Garcia
Yes, Jeff Garcia. I can’t even believe I’m writing it down. But here’s the deal. By not already locking up Jason Campbell to an extension, the Skins are showing us that they no longer have confidence in him. You can’t have a lame duck QB. So bring in Garcia to push him. He’s a great west coast QB and he always finds a way to win games and make plays. Brennan can continue to develop behind the 2, and you’d have to cut Collins. Next year you can decide who your QB is, Colt or JC.

I’m anxious to see how things turn out over the next week or so. There will be wining and dining with the Danny, Redskin’s wives doubling as Real Estate agents, and recruiting from the players.
Hey, it’s the greatest time of the year to be a Skins fan!

Cheers and Hail
