Derrick Dockery Update

The Redskins continue their interest in the guard, a former Skins draft pick, and there is a good chance he could still visit Redskins Park this weekend, according to a source. I would have to imagine that a deal for him would end this portion of free agency, with bigger bucks doled out.

The Redskins did extend an offer to linebacker Khary Campbell, according to league sources, but he is going to see what else may emerge for now. Skins DE Demetric Evans is lining up some free agent visits and has garnered some interest from other clubs. The Redskins also might still re-sign G Pete Kendall and DE Phillip Daniels - both players near the end of their careers with injury histories - for small deals depending on what the market bears.

FIRST of all, I hope we resign dockery, he is the glue we need to restructure this O line, Love the Haynesworth signing if we can stilll plug the other holes we have . . .

They should have scooped up a bunch of offensive linemen first. So, does Haynesworth's signing mean the team is going to stick with Taylor and Carter on the outside with the hope that Griffin and Haynesworth in the middle will draw more blockers so the ends will only have one guy to beat? Haynesworth's signing could open the possibility for Taylor and Carter to move to linebacker spots in a 3-4 defense while the team uses Montgomery and Griffin in a rotation at end, with Haynesworth playing nose tackle.

The thing , or many things AL gives you is

1) More freedom for Fletcher... no one will get out to block him.. this is his pro bowl year.

2) More production out of DE's... which may eventually work out to making JT worht 8 mil if he doesnt restructure.

3) Makes CB's like Hall even more able to take gambles and jump routes. We had one TD outside of our offense last year, and that was Moss' PR for a TD. No defensive TD's. That is a big part of the nfl... hence us being the only top 5 Defense not in the playoffs.

4) The ONLY way this helps the offense in their work is more opportunities...

We obvi still need to work on the o line...

Where's all this money (cap space) coming from? How are they going to sign a first round pick much less other draft picks?

pfunk, from the thread ahead of this one in space but not in time... i agree he is f'in our ability on the o line... but he is extending, possibly, fletchers carrer and maybe even JT... i know, serious optimism there... maybe even carlos can get his hands on a few balls and we can put horton deep and move landry near the line... that is a serious threat to the QB

Well considering we just spent $150+ million in contracts with, according to JLC, just $8 million in cap space, I think they can make a few more cuts and be able to sign a few more people.

And remember, we still have $14 million insurance policies in Jason Taylor and Shawn Springs if it becomes absolutely necessary. I think they want to keep both guys, but more than likely Springs gets let go and we'll have a few mill of wiggle room.

i dont know, i leave that to their capologist.. i think they have to set aside a specific amount for rookies, which should have already been figured in.

Remember, the only portion we know is guaranteed against the cap is 41 mil over 7, so about 6 per... then a base salary around 14.28 mil per year... but those are probably weird incentives like one game played and you get a mil... etc.

But, year after year they prove me wrong so i have stopped doubting their ability.

I said a long time ago, they keep JT, and Hall and now thye got AL....

beep beep. Springs to be released.

Posted by: learnedhand1 | February 27, 2009 10:24 AM | Report abuse

Lets say they dump springs, and bring in Dock, and Brown. What should they do at #13 in the upcoming draft??

I'm thinking this makes a trade back even more of a priority. More I think about it, more I think that Philly is gonna want to move up. With both Thomas and Runyan being free agents, they need a RT/LT

In my opinion, it is important to get as much value out of one position as possible. Whats the point of having two players on the field doing what 1 can, it is simple efficient thinking. Big money, but with about 30 mil coming in the next year, it wont be that big of a hit for the subsequent years. What this does is instantly improve Taylor and Carter because the pocket will have to be tighter for Albert, and they will have an easier time getting around the edge. It makes the linebackers better because they have 1 less lineman to deal with. It also allows us to draft a linebacker if we chose. The DBs will have to cover recievers for a shorter period of time, leading to tighter coverage and more turnovers.The offense will improve now that we can worry about improving that side of the ball in the draft. They will also benefit from better defensive performance and field position from turnovers. If we draft a linebacker this year in round one, we have taken care of every position on defense for a long time.

Bring LT to the Sikns and let Clinton go I think he run out of fuel,and draft a RB.
