Redskins Insider: March 15, 2009 - March 21, 2009

Week in Review: Obligatory Cutler Stuff, Free Agency, Etc.

Things have certainly slowed down, but wanted to address two of the topics that seem to be on your collective minds before the weekend. So here goes: The Jay Cutler Speculation: We continue to hear nothing tangible about this "trade" whatsoever. Vinny Cerrato has denied it up and down, not...

Free-Agent Shopping in the Bargain Bin

When free agency started, these were a few players I figured could be intriguing purchases. None of them was spectacular, but these guys merited an investment, I thought, provided they could be matched up with the right teams. Although the bulk of free agency is over and some of them...

Hall, Smoot: Getting Paid Is a Capitol Idea

Dan Steinberg went up to Capitol Hill and, after offering up some helpful hints on fixing that whole economy thing, he sauntered out into a driving rain to catch up with Fred Smoot and DeAngelo Hall and a bunch of Ravens. Among other things, Smoot and Hall talked about big...

Rate Free Agents of the Snyder Era

Once or twice in my five-plus years chronicling all things Redskin, I've been accused of not giving the front office enough credit. So, with that in mind, I'd like to select the best free agent signings of the Daniel Snyder Era. Considerations include bang for the buck, ability to find...

Hall Gets His Big Chance with Skins

The Redskins, with limited cap space, made DeAngelo Hall and Albert Haynesworth their free-agency focus, giving them about $65 million guaranteed this winter. But, if such a thing is possible with this team, Hall has flown a little under the radar, given the historic contract signed by Haynesworth. After speaking...

Cerrato: Redskins Not Pursuing Cutler

From Jason Reid: Just got a text from Vinny Cerrato, Washington's executive vice president of football operations, who wrote that there's no truth to an Internet report that the team is actively pursuing a trade for disgruntled Denver quarterback Jay Cutler. In addition, Coach Jim Zorn has told many in...

Daniels Might Return After All

From Jason Reid: Just got a phone call from veteran defensive end Phillip Daniels, who said he has reconsidered his position and might accept Washington's minimum contract offer to return next season after speaking with defensive coordinator Greg Blache. "I'm not saying anything is definite yet, I still have to...

Below-the-Radar Roster Concerns Lurk for Skins

We can all agree - maybe? perhaps? even on this blog? - that there are some holes on the Redskins' roster. Notable among them are starting right tackle, strong-side linebacker and left end. But what are your other areas of concern? To me, there are a few below-the-radar roster positions...

Campbell Unfazed by Lack of Extension

Jason Reid reports: Owner Daniel Snyder continues to take a wait-and-see approach with quarterback Jason Campbell, whose contract expires after the 2009 season. The Redskins do not plan to offer Campbell an extension this offseason, team and league sources said, so he begins his third full season as a starter...

Daniels Uncertain of Skins' Interest

Jason Reid reports: Confused about the lack of progress in negotiations with the Redskins, veteran defensive end Phillip Daniels no longer is confident he is in the team's plans, he said today. "When people look you in your face, when you talk to them man to man, and they tell...

Is Matt Jones Worth the Trouble for Skins?

As you can tell by the headline of this post, I've gotten more emails since the Jay Cutler flurry -- this time concerning Matt Jones, the Jacksonville wide receiver/tight end who was released by the Jags after another run-in with the law. While his size (6-6) and talent make him...

Campbell Excited about "Chance to Lead"

Jason Reid caught up with Jason Campbell yesterday (in my vision of the future, everyone is named Jason) as the first day of offseason workouts began. Campbell talked about the offseason acquisitions, the offensive line and being the focus of fans' frustrations as the offense struggled. "As a competitor, I...

Wynn Agrees to Terms

Veteran defensive lineman Renaldo Wynn has agreed to terms on a one-year deal according to a league source. The Redskins have been interested in him for a while, and Wynn was a team leader prior to being cut before the 2007 season. Since then he's played with the Saints and...

Redskins Assess Remaining Options

Let's examine where the Redskins now stand and what options are left to them, given that there isn't a lot of salary-cap space with which to land an impact player. At defensive end, Phillip Daniels and Renaldo Wynn remain in play. There isn't a big market for either player, although...

Shaun Suisham Signs His Tender

The kicker has signed his offer sheet and is under contract for 2009, the Redskins announced. Anthony Montgomery and Kedric Golston will do the same at some point shortly as well. It's basically a formality at this point. All were restricted free agents....

Jay Cutler a Redskin?

Jay Cutler is the flavor of the day/week/month, so my inbox is now stuffed with inquiries about him. (Covering the Redskins is the football equivalent of covering the Yankees or Red Wings, with every player examined and debated for a possible roster spot on a daily basis.) So now it's...
