Redskins Draft (Only have 4 picks)  and 11.1 Million in cap room...I feel as though we have some options

Option 1 - Trade down in the first round for a later 1st round and another pick...this will give us an additional pick as well as still get a player that would help us now. 

Option 2 - remain silent in free agency and just try to draft the best we can with the information we have and add the players that will plug the immediate holes.  Those spots are DE, OLD, RB, and OT.

I feel as though we need to plug in two spots with free agents and draft effectively this year. 


Either Acquire: OT Kalif Barnes (4yrs exp) 4 yr starter-will help aging OLINE and has potential to be starter.  We can fill a gap and not draft a OLINE in draft.

Acquire: OLB Cato June (6yrs exp) solid tackler with good history and performance or OLD Kevin Burnett (4Yrs exp) from Dallas who is a good tackler and could fill in as a starter...Both could help us out immediately and thus saving a pick in the draft for other positions.

With any additions of these players suggested we could use our picks in 2009 draft smarter and not because of immediate need. 

WE DEFINATLY need a backup RB to spell Portis- Maybe Javon Ringer could fall to 3rd rd and has been heralded as a STAR!!!

I definately think we need to draft a DE early  and if we trade down we would be able to get a speed rusher who could help on the end...Maybe Brian Orakpo DE -Texas 6'3 263 4.63 40yrd dash (proj 1st rd), Michael Johnson DE-Georgia tech 6'7 266 4.68 40yrd dash (proj 1/2) Lawernce Sidbury DE-Richmond 6'3 266 4.57 40 yrd dash (proj3/4), Robert ajer DE-Tenn 6'3 272 4.77 40yrd dash (proj 2nd  rd)

Redskins Cap situation and other MOVES in the NFL

First let me say that despite paying alot of money, my research has told me that the Washington Redskins still have 11.1 M left under the cap for room to make the moves necessary to bring a championship to DC.  I want to see some other moves and a solid draft, and I feel as though with production comes playoffs. 

My opinion on other NFL teams in free agency is very simple....TOO MUCH MONEY AND NOT ENOUGH MOVES...There have only been a few teams active in providing oportunities for these players to make a difference on there teams.  I know the economy is bad, but it's still not that bad. I hear 61 Million, 42 million, and 35 million under cap and those teams are silent in free agency...WHY?  The teams that have those numbers don't impress me that much in order for me to say all the pieces are in place and they can be complacent in order to not bring in some talent.  So for all the NAYSAYERS OUT THERE WHO BASH BIG SPENDERS, your just jelous that your GM's are afraid to bring some talent in without spending any money, with talent comes a price...WITH RISK COMES REWARD!!!!

I feel as though GM's think that as long as seats are filled it doesn't matter about a no offseason, just enough to make the seats filled and keep the fans at bay.  NO DRIVE to make you team win the title of CHAMPION!!!!

SO FOR ALL THE BIG SPENDERS AND RISK TAKERS....GO FORTH, do what you have to because in the end...AT LEAST YOU TRIED!!! and people will remember that...

2009 OFFSEASON MOVES.....Outlook of the Redskins

For everyone who does not know about football, most every year my favorite team, the Washington Redskins, opens there wallet for the chance to score the next big talent in free agency...This year included.

We signed three players, Albert Haynesworth, DeAngelo Hall, and Derrick Dockery to big contracts, yet again proving Dan Snyder has not yet been affected by the sloping economic situation. 

After many discussion with freinds and foes alike, I come to the conclusion that YES....I MEAN HELL YEA!!! we (redskins organization) have overpaid for these players.  HOWEVER, I feel as though the current market for these players called for these numbers.  So therefore, we were almost forced to pay these prices in order to get what we wanted......AND BELIEVE ME, WE GET WHAT WE WANT.  

When in years past we threw away draft picks and tons of money on stars that are aged and on there way out of the league.  For example, the latest debacle of Jason Taylor.  We trade a 2nd round pick who played for 8 games and was hurt, and only had 3.5 sacks last year.  He was a waste of money and time and in the end WE RELEASED HIM.  UNKLIKE, years past, the tons of money was spent on players that are younger and have a future in football. Haynesworth(27), Hall (25), Dockery (27) still have many years ahead of them and also have all the talent in the world.  YES WE OVERPAID.....BUT IF THATS WHAT IT TAKES TO GET A PIECE OF THE PUZZLE...then so be it.

BOTTOM LINE....I would rather be the Redskins and pay for a potential star who could help the teams, then the Philadelphia Eagles who never open there wallet at all and turn there back on players who were cornerstones of there teams (Brian Dawkins to Broncos)
