This is a good player with tons of upside.

I would do the trade NOW in view of Brown's injury prone status.


They want/wanted more than just Cooley... heard Helu's name came up, might have been the deal breaker.

That doesn't sound like a player who's injured or about to get cut.

Several different guys have played the slot position, but if I had to bet right now I'd bet on Santana Moss as the slot receiver with Pierre Garcon and Leonard Hankerson as the starters outside. The Redskins believe Josh Morgan can play any of the three spots. [/quote]

What?! But forum dwellers said he's a bum?!? Lol

So much for the Hankerson rumors...

Washington Redskins receiver Leonard Hankerson having a strong training camp
It has been a solid training camp for Washington Redskins receiver Leonard Hankerson, a second-year pro who has been one of the team’s more consistent pass-catchers in practices.

While free-agent addition Josh Morgan has been plagued by a hamstring injury, Hankerson has made a strong bid thus far for a prominent role in the team’s receiver corps alongside Pierre Garcon and Santana Moss.

“It always can be a whole lot better,” Hankerson said Monday. “But I feel like I’m right there. I feel like I’m getting better. I feel like I’m doing what the coaches ask me. And I feel like I’m taking a step each and every day, and that’s what it’s all about.”

I'm not anti Hankerson or Cooley, I just didn't have plans on them being contributors this year and called them non factors.

Hopefully Hankerson comes in and does it up, but i'm not holding my breath.

I hear what you and LPJ are saying. Totally agree that "reports out of training camp" are a far cry from getting it done once the season starts. I bet you can pull up some optimistic "reports out of training camp" on Malcolm Kelly if you start digging through google.

The original rumor in this thread though was "1) Hankerson will not be ready to start this season. Worse, there seem to be indications that he may not heal fully to play without risk of serious re-injury."

This one rumor I'm glad to see isn't proving true!

I have no issues with anybody posting rumors btw. Nothing better to do during the summer then speculate over rumors...
