Redskins Insider: March 4, 2007 - March 10, 2007

Minor Update

We had a little slip up yesterday. I filed a small story about Tucker/other O linemen and then, right after I filed it, a few people called me back and I got better information. So I called Cindy and asked if we could "spike" - toss out - what I...

Ross Tucker???

Okay, so when this guy was around the facility over the weekend I didn't think anything of it. Then he was back today, and I still thought not much of it. But the Skins have signed him now ... and I still don't think this is the guy who will...

Best Guest Blog Ever (No Offense To Previous Guest Bloggers, But Trust Me On This One)

So, I was going to write a manifesto attacking Day-Late Dave Elfin for a halfhearted attempt to discredit my coverage of the Dre Blye affair - then figured he's obviously not worth the web space and I'm actually going to try to be mature for once. That's a little example...

The Skinny On The Biggies

Okay, so we've been going through this in drips and drabs, so I figured I would put this list together in the search for America's Next Top Derrick Dockery. Figure I'll use a scale of 1-66 (pretty cute, huh?) to handicap their odds of being the guy. A 66 means...

John Hall Is Released

The inevitable is now official. The Skins oft-injured kicker John Hall, a Joe Gibbs favorite, lost his job this season when he was hurt again. Now he'll be on the free agent market. He's a hard-nosed guy who loved everything about football, but for three straight seasons he suffered major...

Edwin Mulitalo

The Ravens have officially released him now, but I imagine other teams may have already known this was imminent. This guy has a huge frame, has put together a strong career and was hurt last year, with the Ravens undergoing a youth movement on their line. I think he could...

Afternoon Doldurms

Making calls, sending out emails and watching Man U/Lille while I work and the girls nap (if this game is half as good as Lpool/Barca then I'll be doing cartwheels). Still making calls on various trades and free agent stuff, but it's kinda dry right now. Not much left out...

My Head Hurts - Too Many Numbers

Okay, if you want a breakdown of the Skins current cap situation and a whole bunch of contract stuff previously un-reported, check out the paper tonight or washingtonpost.com late tonight (10:30? 11? whenever they post that stuff) and you'll get all you can handle (assuming they don't edit a lot...

More Dre Bly

As I've been writing since Sunday, don't rule out a Dre Bly trade. I continue to hear this cat is pushing to get to DC bigtime, and it seems like the trade talks are still on. The stuff I hear just won't go away and I am beginning to think...

T.J. Duckett Update

A buddy tells me TJ left Detroit today without a deal. Set to visit the Jets on Wednesday and Seattle later this week. Might not make a final decision until visiting all three places. Will let you know once I hear more. He was a great guy in a bad...

Petigout Gone - What Do Skins Do Next?

Luke gets (Updated To Reflect New Reported Contract Numbers, per NFL Network) $15 million over three years from the Bucs and gets to stay at his natural tackle position. Not a huge contract by any stretch and I get the feeling the Skins had reservations about his back condition. The...

Eric's Guest Blog

Eric, a friend of the blog who lives in Florida these days, did some major-league research on Art Monk and provives a statistical look at the man who continues to be snubbed by the HOF for who knows what good reason. Anyway, I'll step aside and let Eric's work take...

Brief Update

Heard Petitgout had a very nice visit to the Park before taking off back home (he lives in Delaware). Heard he looked good and appeared healthy according to some (Petitgout broke his fibula in November), and the film the straff watched on him was pretty impressive. In fact, at least...

Luke Petitgout Is In The House

Petitgout is in the building, there for a free agent visit. Former left tackle for the Giants would be moved to guard to replace Dockery should he sign. Had some knee problems but the word is he passed Tama's physical over the weekend. Also, he recently dropped his old agents...

Forbes GM List - Looks Like Junk To Me

Any of you guys see this ranking of all the pro sports GMs out there by Forbes? They rank them based on bang for their buck, and the team's performance under their reign compared to those who have held the job in the past. Apparently, ability to win games, draft...

Steve's Guest Blog

Steve did some serious research on the Skins and the draft - as we slowly turn out attention away from free agency -and I promised him a while back I would post then got caught up in all the news. So here, it is. Enjoy. Steve writes: Once again we're...

Dre' Bly wants to be a Skin? That's What I Hear

Numerous league sources, including several who have spoken with Denver cornerback Dre' Bly, said that the player is miffed that he was dealt to the Broncos last week instead of Washington. As I have reported, the Redskins were deep into trade and subsequent contract talks with Bly - a Detroit...

The Big Spending Is Over

I am not ruling out a trade this offseason, but in terms of big signings, this appears to be it. Coach Joe said he was not pressed to do something at guard or tight end right now - although does plan on addresssing those positions at some point - and...

Kudos To The Skins

If what I am hearing from some agents - who are not directly involved in the negotiations - is true, then Leonard Davis is about to pocket close to $20 million guarnated of Jerry Jones's money, and the Skins have shown some welcome restraint. This dude is a classic trap....
