Free Agent Thread

Postby HTTRRG3ALMO » Thu Jan 10, 2013 11:33 pm

Are there any serious talks going on right now with any potentially game changing free agents?

I stopped seeing any articles about Jairus Byrd; he's on my wishlist.

Thoughts?

A beast Safety or cb.. we have some injured players coming back and rooks maturing, can't wait to see if minnifields drive has paid off... I wanted Carr but the pukes got him (obviously), thought flowers may be on the table this year could be wrong.
As others mentioned Bowe might be a good addition. I've had hopes of Hanktime living up to his attributes, but the injury has him seeing shadow people and hearing footsteps.
A stud oline member is probably in the cards before another wide out, but health and better db play already has me excited about the squad for next year. The injury bug bit hard this year

I was really hoping to see what Minnifield was capable of. Can't wait till the pre-season (if he's ready).

I knew I should have called this the draft/FA thread lol. Been hearing a lot about us having a shot at getting Rambo, Honey Badger, and Ray Ray Armstrong.

All are great talents, but all have some serious risks in my opinion.

Its been nearly impossible to not drool over the 2013 Mock Drafts lol. Just hope we get all of our issues solved through FA & draft this year.

Dwayne Bowe - WR Upgrade over Josh Morgan
Brent Grimes - CB Upgrade over Cedric Griffin
Glenn Dorsey - DL (3-4 DE) Upgrade over Kedric Golston


We have a good team. We just lack a few players at key positions who can change a few games. I'm counting on Tanard Jackson and Brandon Merriweather manning both safety spots.

If not, I'd add William Moore - S ATL

Dwayne Bowe would be awesome!!

I'd love to see our secondary moreso upgraded in the draft but if we can snag up quality in FA, pull the trigger.

Bowe would be great but I think his asking price could be to high.
Danny Amendola could be a more affordable alternative.

DB help for sure along with O-line help. I would try to draft a offensive tackle and a saftey to go along with FA we pick up.

Finding a LB to replace Fletcher when he finally decides to retire should be on the agenda also.

I know its going to vary from player to player, but when do the Redskins typically become more aggressive in FA signings? Last year they seemed to do more FA signing only towards the end of the draft.

We already have the OMG and Robinson on three team. Oner of those two could be his replacement. I also wonder if Rob Jackson would make the switch well. He seems to have good cover instincts and can get after the QB. Of course that is assuming someone doesn't pay him to be a starting LB; I'm certain he will get some offers.

To me RT and S are the #1a and 1b priority, and corner is #3 (don't think DHall wil be back).

His footwork is incredible. And, look at the way he gets open against the likes of Revis, Champ Bailey etc. Goes across the middle without fear. Great hands, and is ferocious. Body control. I want this guy on my team.

Garcon
Bowe
Moss in the slot.

You have to figure there will be plenty of WRs around the league who would jump at the chance to play with RGIII.

I would be happier with a RT that would give his life and first born to protect him.

Check the free agency list. There aren't many RT's hitting free agency. Unless we bring in an LT and convert him. Branden Albert or Sebastrian Vollmer might be options, but Vollmer may not fit the ZBS.
