Redskins Work Out End.

Postby Jake » Tue Sep 16, 2003 8:49 pm

The Post is reporting the Redskins worked out defensive end Lorenzo Brommell Tuesday. I doubt we will sign him and I am wondering why we worked out a defensive end. Maybe the team is already looking for a relatively younger guy to replace Bruce Smith next season.

I figure it's just the regular "let's keep up on FAs in case of injury" thing--I haven't heard about any complaints from the front office about our DEs.

Mark Maske answered my question on Live Online today:

Mayo, Md.: I was really surprised to read this week that the Skins had defensive end Lorenzo Bromell in for a tryout. Is the team already looking for a younger replacment for Bruce Smith next season? Are there any more players coming in for visits the next few weeks?

Mark Maske: Just about every Tuesday, you will see players who aren't on teams come in for workouts. That's the day off for the players, and the scouts and front-office guys have the fields to themselves to conduct workouts like that. The basic purpose is that if someone on your roster gets hurt later in the year, you will have seen first-hand some of the guys who are available to be brought in. The Redskins will have to replace Bruce next offseason, but I think getting a pass-rushing defensive end and a big-time defensive tackle will be big-ticket, big-money moves, not filling in with a guy like that.
