Free Agents

Postby fredp45 » Fri Jan 11, 2008 9:41 pm

While I'm certainly not advocating we sign all these guys or even most of them, there are a few guys here that could help us out. I tried to focus on only Unrestricted players (to avoid losing draft picks) who've been around no more than say, 5 years. The last thing I want to do is spend lots of our cap on guys who have already hit 30:

One taller WR:

Bryant Johnson -- 6'3" 3rd wr on Cards behind Bolden & Fitz
Justin Cage -- 6'4" from Titans. Sign Schwartz, maybe he comes along.

One quality younger OG:

Ryan Lilja -- starter for Colts.
Jake Scott -- starter for Colts.

One Defensive lineman:

Jared Allen -- pricey DE from Chiefs who ate us up 2 years ago!
Justin Smith -- has not been an all-pro but has NO help on dline in Cinci.
Randy Starks -- B-up DT on Titans, from Md. If Schwartz is hired....

One outside linebacker:

Karlos Dansby -- on Cards
Lance Briggs -- Stud on Bears - but will cost a lot!
Lemar Marshall -- kidding

CB:

Marcus Trufant -- Seattle CB.


Again, all of these are under 30...anyone know much about them?

Only that I played Braynt Johnson because of an injury to one of my starting WRs in a fantasy playoff game, after he was listed as a must start when Fitzgearld and Boldin were hurt. He got me nothing, and my team's storybook season was ended.
Bruce has the authority. When Bruce makes the decision, it's a Redskins decision.

Karlos Dansby was a beast at Auburn. He is more of a blitzing type LB. I don't have the info in front of me to back it up, but it seems to me that he is often injured. Not miss games injured, but always banged up or with hamstring problems. Maybe someone from out in that area can confirm or deny, I tend to overlook the Cardinals most of the time.
