So, out of curiosity when do we think we win front office or general manager (not sure which it is) of the year for how we've managed to win the NFC East (probably twice), sign players, keep key players all while being robbed of $36 million over 2 years.

I mean is there really a better front office organization in the league right now?

YES!!!! So glad to read this news this morning. I hope Fred lights it up this year and the Skins can afford to pay him more in 2014.

I saw McShay's two round draft yesterday and it had the Skins taking a TE in the 2d round, I guess anticipating that Davis wasn't back. That just goes to show you how big this re-signing was. It would suck IMO to be using a 2d round pick on a TE this year.

Even without Davis back, that pick prediction from McShay was idiotic. There were at least 2 safeties and 1 CB, can't think of names right now, that would be awesome for us that he had still available.

So glad we were able to bring him back! And for a one year deal...it fills a hole and he should have a breakout year because I'm sure he'll be looking for a big contract next offseason.

This is good news.

We can roll into this season with the same players and still get a ton of growth. RGIII was a rookie. The line is playing it's second year together. Fred didn't finish the year. Paulsen got great experience. Morgan is finally healthy, Pierre will be healthy. Helu will be healthy.

The biggest addition would be a change of pace back/utility player to go in backfield. Heck, that player could be our FB.

I'm still holding out hope that change of pace back can be Helu, probably wishful thinking but when he was healthy he flashed signs of incredible vision and open field ability.

Yeah, I guess for no good reason I've written him off to an extent. However, it's telling that Mike has decided to keep him around. I still expect Mike to draft a RB.

Nice.

I wonder where that puts us with being able to sign Winfield. Seems like we definitely don't have the cap space now, but I'm happy with our FA performance this year and the draft will handle the rest.

Before going down with that injury, he led the team with 24 receptions and 325 yards. Paulsen had just 20 catches and 210 yards in the final nine games.

Excellent... color me very pleasantly surprised! A healthy Davis on the field with a healthy Garcon... will be a killer combo

Welcome back Fred83. It's possible that the one thing the Skins had in their favor, and hopefully Fred83 recognized this, is a guy named RGIII. :-)
