Carlos Rogers gets tender offer

The Redskins have tendered an offer to cornerback Carlos Rogers. It wasn't immediately clear whether the team extended a high- or low-level offer to the Auburn alum.

Rogers started 15 of 16 games last season, his fifth in the league.

As a player with less than six years of service, he'll hit the market as a restricted free agent at midnight Friday.

This guy just needs to buy some hands. If he could just hold on to a pick sometimes that would be a nice game changer for us.

So with all these RFA's and a supposedly deep draft what are the odds of any of them getting signed away?

Bit of a poker match mentality here. Some teams will wait to see if duds like Rog are cut after nothing stirs, knowing the owning team doesn't want the dud and is willing to eat the lowball offer to get him off their hands in an uncapped yr.

I'm a big fan of CR, I don't care that he can't catch because he can cover and tackle. Also, zones get picks and man to man breaks up the pass. He's in man most of the time and he's a DB, set your expectations appropriately

1st round tender for Los

That would be the 2nd out of 4 tenders.

Highest or 1st: 1st & 3rd
2nd: 1st rd
3rd: 2nd rd
4th: original rd player was taken

C'mon Mease.

LOL... I'm telling you, after the Seattle game a few years ago where he dropped that sure TD that could of won the game, I said he should get one of those football throwing machines & fricken use it for 30 mins after practice & just catch balls... He is a good corner, but has the worst hands EVER!

And zcezcest1... not too many people can cover Desean Jackson... another Vinny mistake... we wouldn't of had to cover him, if we picked him!

Trading the #4 pick and Jason Campbell to the Rams is a good deal for us to get Bradford IFFFF ... he turns into another Elway.

Thing is, as I demonstrated in the post on the last thread, very high QB draft picks is anything but a given.

Shanahan picked Cutler with the a pick just outside the top 10, and with 4 seasons under his belt, he's no better than Jason Campbell.

There is no historical basis for Shanahan to have confidence that a QB pick in the top 4 is going to be a success. Further, there is no basis for Shanahan to have confidence in his ability to pick the great QB.

True but you have to wonder with the apparently weak UFA market whether there will be some takers on the RFA market.

Thanks for the demonstration, Professor. Without it, everyone assumed that drafting a first round QB is a sure fire hit.

Jackson was one pick before Kelly

No problem. Seems people need reminding. Mike and Bruce and Danny included.

PS: Joey Harrington, Tim Couch, & Akili Smith would like to tell the professor that they have clep of your intro to the NFL draft class.

Why tender JC with a 1st and 3rd when you can keep him with just the 1st rd tender? This is good sense.

Plus it gives the Skins a first rd pick if another team sees more to him than the Skins do.

Both tenders to the Auburn duo make sense value wise. Both will fill needs next year, but will give the Skins 1st round picks if signed elsewhere. Smart moves IMO.

Also good move on Heyer as we will need some OL depth. Keeping in mind that he can still be cut when the roster is being trimmed to 53 if he is not working out.

From John Keim on redskins confidential

Oh, and for what it's worth we're hearing that the Redskins do indeed like Sam Bradford but are not as high on Jimmy Clausen. Wouldn't be surprised if that seems to change by the week as teams play their draft mind games with one another.


Finally, I talked to one veteran offensive player who expects the Redskins to sign running back Darren Sproles. But that's just based on what he knows of what the Redskins want and what Sproles offers

I read that. They are hoping someone offers a contract for him by giving him the lowest tender and only asking for a 3rd rd pick. Funny how Rocky who received the 3rd tender and has never had more than 95 tackles feels disrespected while Morrison has lead the Raider in tackles the last 5 years received the lowest tender. What Rocky doesn’t understand is that the skins did him a favor by giving him the 3rd level tender and could have given him the lowest tender and would be entitled to the same compensation. I’d trade Morrison for Rocky.

it's real easy for people to say , let him walk but pro football players don't exactly grow on trees.

we are not good, if we let campbell, rogers, mcintosh walk we are that much not gooder
