Recapping Day 3 of Redskins Free Agency


The Redskins made their biggest move of the day early Thursday morning by shipping disgruntled defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to the New England Patriots in exchange for a 2013 5th round draft pick. This ends a dark chapter because Haynesworth is widely viewed as arguably the biggest free agent bust in franchise history, which should say something. Ironically, Haynesworth heads to another team with a 3-4 defense and a coach regarded as even stricter than Mike Shanahan in Bill Belichick.

My Top 10 Free Agent Targets


It looks like we may be starting football pretty soon, so it seemed prudent to knock out what I think are 10 great free agents for the Washington Redskins to target.

1. Aubrayo Franklin – NT – The 3-4 defense relies on a true nose tackle, and Franklin is the best available in free agency. He won’t come cheap which is a concern for any over 30 lineman, but his ability to free up linebackers Brian Orakpo and rookie Ryan Kerrigan, make adding him a must.  The Redskins will have money to spend, and despite needing many pieces, settling for less than Franklin, will be just that, settling.

Corners Outstanding


There were a lot of good, even great, performances from Redskin players in their 26-24 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. Were any of them better than those of Carlos Rogers and Shawn Springs?

For most of the day, the job of trying to stop Terrell Owens fell to Springs; but when Springs strained his calf, Rogers took over. By game’s end, Owens did have seven catches for 71 yards, but Tony Romo threw the ball in his direction 18 times. I’m not even going to get into how ridiculous I think it is to pander to a receiver that much (and of course, T.O. didn’t think getting 1/3 of the team’s offensive looks was enough anyway).

Both Springs and Rogers accomplished their task by playing T.O. very physically. There was a lot of post-game griping from Cowboys Nation about contact after five yards, but in reality, the Redskins just out-worked the Cowboys receivers. Washington pressured the receivers at the line and then brought a safety over the top, and the Cowboys were just unable to put together any of the big plays that their offense is capable of.

“They do a good job in their man-to-man coverage. Their corners are physical, they climb up all over the receivers,” Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett said. 

Climb up all over the receivers? 

When the Redskins weren’t bumping the Cowboys receivers at the line, they were blanketing them downfield anyway. Owens wasn’t getting any separation against either Springs or Rogers. The Redskins ability to cover T.O. with man-to-man coverage freed up other defenders to do other things as well, like make sure Marion Barber did nothing (8 carries for 26 yards), and provide occasional help on tight end Jason Witten.

While experts will point to a million different scenarios and reasons as to WHY it happened, the truth is that Rogers and Springs flat out played better ball than T.O. did.

Considering that Rogers has sometimes struggled to cover a team’s number one guy, I thought that it was one of his best games in the burgundy and gold. Congratulations Carlos.

Springs stayed in Dallas to be with his father (who is in a vegetative state). It isn’t hard to figure out where he drew his inspiration from on Sunday.
