If you were any other GM, would you give us anything for Matt Jones, knowing his situation? There are guys on our roster (Ryan Grant...Niles Paul) who I'd sure want and they are by no means sure cuts. But Jones is just damaged goods and everyone knows he'll be released.
Paul and Grant may be cut too with the additions of WRs we have and a healthy Carrier.
No way you should delete it, and pardon my circumsizing your length, I should be more sensitive to,size issues.
Keep contract talk and the re-visitation of the past off this thread. We've been here before Big, it's a pretty straight forward request that has no bearing on the LTD thread except not turning this into another one. And see, we are still talking about it.
To conform with this I deleted my post on this thread. Sorry about that.
I went through the thread and looked at the players highlight reels more extensively and come up with the following thoughts and comparisons.
Jon Allen reminds me to some degree of Reggie White to some degree. It’s a long way to go before he can be brought up in the same comparison of Reggie but he reminds me of him.
Ryan Anderson reminds me of Darryl Talley. He just does.
Fabian Moreau reminds me of a poor man's Aqib Talib. Could he become as good a Talib w/o the off the field issues?
Samaje Perine reminds me of Earl Campbell. He runs with the same authority and style.
Montae Nicholson is interesting. The video is from his senior year at high school where he was used as a WR and a return specialist. I wonder if the Skins, when they drafted him thought about trying him at either one of those positions if things don’t work out for him as a S. It looks like he had success at both WR and return specialist back then. Hmmmmmmm.
Jeremy Sprinkle somewhat reminds me of Mercedes Lewis, a onetime Jaguar. I think he can be better. He’s not as big but his play just reminds me of him.
Josh Harvey-Clemons the Skins version of Cam Chancellor. If he can keep his nose clean and play up to his potential he’ll make a name for himself in DC.
Joshua Holsey reminds me of a poor man’s Tyrann Mathieu. Love the pick. Had it not been for his 2 ACL injuries IMO, he would have gone much higher in the draft. IMO, biggest steal of the draft in the later rounds.
McCoys a UFA next year, Jones is just the msg in a taco.
McCoy knows McVays system and can help in the development of Goff, and can start if Goff struggles.
I have always liked Mannion and i believe he could grow under Gruden in this system, providing us with a young talented backup at worst and a possible successor to Kirk at best, should the Skins totally screw the pooch there. Hes also a better prospect than Sudfeld.
Like all QBs in Jeff Fishers tenure at the Rams, no one developed, but this kid has the tools if in the right environment.
I was told Jon would be about the last person Jay would give inside information to and some very senior people told me they think it will get done. Who knows? All we know is that Jon doesn't. It must have been fun to talk to him though. Did he smack his lips? Jay said last month it is his most irritating habit.
More Mike Mayock Redskins talk heating up league circle. Consensus fed up draft coverage and if philosophical marriage exists he'll head to D.C.
This is two weeks old, but relevant about Mayock and KC: “I do believe Kirk Cousins is the quarterback of the Redskins for the future and I think a lot of that is philosophically, he aligns perfectly with what Jay Gruden wants to do. So yeah I do believe he’s the guy,” Mayock said ahead of last year’s combine. Mayock is on the record praising Cousins’ footwork and release time, but he’s been highest on the quarterback’s intangibles.
The article also says Danny really likes Mayock and how Mayock was fed up with the NFLN draft coverage. Another article said he almost walked off the set after the orangutan bit. So maybe Mayock's future as our GM hinges on how he and BA agree on signing the LTD with KC.
Hoping in happens, JW and have been since it came out. Mayock is a no nonsense guy and would help this team. I also believe he's a good evaluator of talent and the other big thing is Danny likes him.

I had the opportunity to speak to Jon Gruden this past weekend and I asked him what he thought would happen with Cousins. And he said the Skins aren't planning on having him past this year. He wants more money than the organization thinks he's worth. I asked what his brother thought of KC, and he said "My brother can coach QBs. They'll get one in next years draft"
Thanks for posting this. Unfortunate, but not really surprising. If the Skins knew this at draft time, then why didn't they trade him and at least get something for him rather than letting him walk in free agency next year? Either way you're starting over with a rookie QB. At least by trading him you get something of value for him AND you can start the rebuild behind a rookie QB a year earlier.
That's the part that is going to stick in my craw if this scenario goes down.
If they go the route of drafting a QB next year, keep an eye on Wyoming's Josh Allen. We drafted his OC/OG this year in the draft.
Hoping and believing in the end we sign KC to a LTD by 7/15. If not, I'm starting to think we make a play for QB Josh Allen of Wyoming. We drafted his OC this year in the 2017 draft so just got this feeling.
Its also interesting that people believe Brady won the last SB with a terrific comeback...which would not have seen the light of day had his defense not lifted its game after halftime, stood up and forced two turnovers and multiple stops in the second half.
The QB gets all the accolades or rotten tomatoes but to those who truly understand the game, they know you can't consistently win without contributions on both sides of the ball, in fact, all three facets of the game.
Greats like Dan Marino never won a SB because he had such poor defenses to overcome.
Give a Cousins led offense a mid-table defense and we are a perennial playoff team, give that offense a defense better than that and we are a contender.
PAY THE MAN!
Redskins spent a lot of resources this year (both FA and draft) hoping to improve the D and also drafted some players on O that will also help out especially at RB. Our O was already set scoring a lot of points most games. Defense not playing their game affects the play of the O. Agree, PC and KC should have already been paid and hope this gets done by 7/15.

I think its more the issue of 3rd round picks falling in that abyss between second rounders and day 3 picks. Its takes time to get those contracts - and their structures - right. We've seen for the past few years across the league third rounders being the last group to sign because of it.
Plus there is no rush, Moreau isn't seeing practices anytime soon.
Was just about to type this as well, that the 3rd round guts are the hardest to sign.
Aren't there salaries listed just like everyone else's from Rounds 1 - 7?
Have to say though that I am sick of watching young talents like Breeland walk out of this organisation and seeing other organisations get the best out of them. I expect our coaches to find these guys buttons and push the right ones. Breeland should be a stud corner for this organisation by now. Is immaturity is a problem? Or poor coaching? I don't think he has been utilised properly at all, either under Haslett or Barry and when you put players into the wrong schemes you don't get the best out of them. Breeland's confidence has been shot IMO which is why he could be protecting his ego and getting into other things. Coaches need to get him back in, strip him back down and get him doing what he does best. Having decent safeties behind will be a first and help him to be aggressive and make plays. We shouldn't be seeking to trade players like Breeland but turning them into the players we drafted him to be.
We have a new DB coach so let's see what we get out of Breeland this year.
Anxious to see all of our newbies this summer....see who impresses especially those who were lower round picks or UDFAs.
One thing that I read/heard about the 2 bama draft picks were that neither were in football/playing shape at this minicamp. Good to read that Allen respects the knowledge of tomsula....maybe the defensive version of Callahan...
Good thing we got Tomsula as DL coach. Agree with your statement, 72.
Again, Stafford and Carr sign contracts as PC mentions above the same as Luck's in 16 and Allen doesn't at least equal what they get paid, then it's on Allen. If KC doesn't except the number of what Luck got in 2016 then we IMO it's on KC and McCarthey.
Like Pat Ramsey and dozens of other NFL QB's before them?
Exactly, Nack. The ole ball coach let him get crushed and affected his confidence. I was excited about the Ramsey selection in the draft and he was the QB I wanted that year in the draft. We know the rest of the story.
