Hackett Signing Not Imminent

The Redskins offered wide receiver D.J. Hackett a contract after his tryout this weekend at minicamp, and wanted him to join the team tomorrow for the first of this week's four organized team activity sessions. Hackett was interested in signing, but a personal matter will preclude him from being here this week. That means that the signing is on hold, according to a league source.

The Skins resume OTAs in June and a full compliment of wide receivers could be healthy by then. Talks between the team and Hackett could resume at that point - the Skins are offering one-year, veteran-minimum deals. The team also expects to hear from wide receiver Kelley Washington, whom they also offered a deal after the minicamp, in a week or so. Washington is expected to participate in Baltimore's upcoming minicamp and make a decision on a new team after that.

Any veteran help at WR would be appreciated. But they have to be able to beat out Thrash, or goodbye...

Posted by: edvar | May 3, 2009 6:37 PM | Report abuse

Reports from redskins.com have not said anything about Hacket's play this weekend, but there were many positive comments about Washington.

Skins need veteran help at WR? Don't tell Snyderatto, but evidently 48 year old Willie Gault is still sporting world class speed... he ran a 10.8 sec 100 yards a couple of weeks ago.

10.8 in 100 meters, not yards...

I love how these dopes (Washington & Hackett) are either too busy or want to see if they can catch on w/ another team. They have a real opportunity here considering we have 3 guys (Moss, EL, Thomas) guarnteed to be on the 53 man roster. Kelly should be on the IR and Thrash(teams and route running cockroach), Marko (measurables but needs a yr on the practice squad) are on the bubble. I more intrested in Hackett if he could stay healthy cause he is a big body who knows the system.

If they'll sign for a veteran minimum deal then sign 'em both. Its hard to have too many receivers for training camp/preseason. A cheap veteran with real NFL experience is likely to be better than an undrafted rookie free agent anyway.

If the Skins can get a decent contribution from at least one more pass catcher, then the offense should be much improved. Personally, I'm putting my money on Fred Davis. Whats wrong with running a lot of 2 TE formations? The answer to the red-zone issues might just be to use a formation with only 1 WR and send Cooly, Davis, and Sellers out on pass routes and throw the ball to whoever has the smallest defender to run over on the way to the end zone.

Of course if the O-Line continues to look like a bunch of mattadors, it wont matter anyway. Who cares if your open if the QB is already on his back.

DJ Hackett?

If the team wanted a vet wideout, compare Torry Holt's 2008 season with Hackett's, scratch your head and ask, "Why did we let the jags take a guy in Holt whose presence on the field would take pressure off Moss/Cooley?"

But Moe sees the headline and thinks, "Oh my god, 'nuther cee-hawk retread."

If DJ Hackett is signed, James Thrash will retire and get a job in the local tribal casino where, with a sign selling cigars attached to him, he'll be labeled: a real redskin.

Marty came with chiefs and Banked on Tony. Spurrier came and brought gators, look out blocking, and disappointment.

S Springs, S Alexander, Zorn, who's next, Dave Kreig and his fumbling issues.

Zorn had better watch out: Chuck Knox is dusting off the 1980s playbook and is ready to coach again, this time in a burgandy and gold hover round.

If that happend, the other Curt Warner will show up to camp and hope to make the team as a Portis backup.

The redskins have gone so Seattle Cee-Hawks crazy, the mock up of the new stadium looks like a replica of the old Kingdome.

Already, we've seen S Springs, S Alexander, Zorn, who's next, Dave Kreig and his fumbling issues.

Rocky Bernard is now in the division where he backs up on the jints d-line visiting twice a year.

Vinny says B Bosworth is willing to shown up and play alongside M kelly so we have two draft busts in the same roster.

Sometimes, I go to other teams' blogs to read what the fans are saying about some of the players the Skins pick up from them. Fans can be brutal, but also insightful.

You can trust me on this or you can go verify it for yourself: most fans are critical of their team's FO, especially when their team isn't winning.

Our team has a 66-78 record over the past 9 years. I submit to you there's a very straightforward solution to getting the majority of fans behind the FO again (hint: it doesn't require the 11th starting QB change and/or the 7th head coaching change in a decade--read the comments!).

Now there is some substance! Do you think the Patriots, Colts, Steelers, fans are critical of their front office. Rhetorical question I know, The point is until belt buckle figures out he needs to hire a GM we (Yes we) will continue to be medicore. Just look at what Ted has done with the Caps.

Oh heck yes. Reading some of those blogs (especially the unmoderated ones) is like listening to Question Time in Parliament, or a legislative session in one of those countries where they actually get into fistfights on the floor during session. Fans are fanatics, right? And fanaticism is not for the faint-hearted.

Listen, there were folks in Boston calling for Belichik's head after that Super Bowl loss. And an element in Pittsburgh that's been trying to convince the club to ditch Roethlisberger for years. The Indianapolitans are more polite, but the feeling's there anyway.

Face it -- most NFL fans have a burning desire to see their club win the whole thing every freakin' year. And on some level, think somebody's head should roll whenever it doesn't happen.

You cannot compare the Caps situation to the Skins. Their GM is a holdover from when Pollin owned the team.They have done well but we all know that the great 8 is the reason the Caps are doing well, not McPhee. The difference is that the Caps had to change the way they do business because they were losing so much money. Leonsis said even if the Caps make it to the Stanley Cup they will still lose money this year. Snyder can field 5-11 teams and still make profits so he has no incentive to change how he does business. Sure he wants to win (so he says) but im sure winning come second to his bottom line.

True dat...however they have less to complain then we do. I know fandom, however I'm happy with our 3 trophies, just not content. They along with the giants have a plan each and every yr with free agency and the draft. We unfortunately go in another direction each yr. The blueprint is simple, build a team like a baseball team (up the midddle). That means OLINE and DLINE. WE have clearly ignored both and are toiling in medicority because of this.

I agree. Ted is even losing money this yr. The point is when Ted bought the team he tried to buy a championship with FA's like Jagr and Lang and only found real success when he hired a gm and built through the draft. Granted there were lean yrs and they got lucky when we won the lottery and got Ovie, but if he didn't learn from his mistakes then he would still be toiling in medioctity like snyder. That is the comparison, it has nothing to do with redskin nation supporting this team win or lose.

Psst, Vinny. The team needs veteran wide receivers. Isn't it time for you to trade away a second round pick for a veteran player that doesn't really fit in the Redskins' system? Oh wait, you did that last year for a defensive end...

Here's a startling fact for the Redskins' front office: Hacket, Washington - even Mike Williams aren't on a team's roster because they just aren't any good. They might look good in the weight room or on the practice field, but the reason why these guys aren't with a team is because they cannot contribute week in and week out on the field. The team stands a better chance developing a player drafted or a recent undrafted free agent.

Posted by: RedSkinHead | May 3, 2009 9:06 PM | Report abuse

Hackett has some nerve. He's on the verge of being out of the NFL forever when a team that is desperate for a solid WR offers him a chance, but he has something better to do for the next week.

I think I understand now why this guy has bombed out everywhere else.

Doesn't he understand that if he catches on, and even has a halfway decent year, the Redskins will throw money at him like it's Christmas...

Here are the reasons why the Redskins haven't won...

1) The lack of a vision, "philosophy", and expertise on team building.

2) More busts than booms with personnel, particulary in Snyder's early years as owner.

3) Too much change of coaching staff. Most of the elite organizations had coaches with several year (Bellichick, Cowher, Billick, Reid)

4) The abililty to evaluate and develop
young talent

5) An outdated offensive philosophy of "smashmouth", 80's football.

Cooley is a hometown hero.
Devin Thomas is the best pure talent from inner part of the left elbow to the top of the palm since Brandon Lloyd.
ARE is one of the most loquacious receivers in the NFL.
Fred Davis gets to work on time.
Malcolm Kelly has the makings of a real pro.
James Thrash will still be willing to play teams if they can guarantee the wheelchair will be fast enough to let him be a gunner.

I rather doubt that Strahan "pushed around Chris Samuels on running plays. If you believe that you are truly an idiot.
The LDE is Blache's 'hybrid' 4-3 / 3-4 is a run stopper. The RDE is the pass rusher. That is Andre Carter who is indeed small and is not effective against the run without help.

ESPN on Orapko AGAIN & AGAIN until it gets driven into pea sized brains:

Stronger in the upper body than he is in the lower body. Explosive upper-body power. Can bench press 500-plus pounds and notched 31 reps (standard 225lbs) at the combine. Lacks ideal lower-body strength, though. Struggles to anchor at times versus bigger OL that can get into his body.

Lacks ideal base and will occasionally struggle when teams run at him. Bigger OT's can move him if they get into his body. However, he is an effective run stopper when he stays on the move. Much improved in this area. Does a good job of using his strong arms and quick hands to keep blockers off his pads temporarily. Shows awareness and is a strong tackler.

What about this escapes your abilty to comprehend?

Your on point with the exception of your last point. There is nothing wrong with being committed to the run, I think we could use a better complement to Portis than Betts. That was how the Titans and Steelers have stayed relatively successful. Run the ball and defense. It appears that we are trying to do, but the FO never articulates what they are trying to accomplish so it is hard to see if we are going in the right direction.

I agree with some of your pojnts with the exception of the coaching changes.

Although it is true about the coaching turnover since 2000. You can't really blame anyone for that.

turner was here when the owner had bought the team....he was fair with Turner and let him stay on another year or 2 even though he did not hire him and he was here way longer than he should have.

Would you have kept Turner?

then Shotty came along...It was not a good fit from the start and he rubbed everyone at Redskins park the worng way including Green....the guy was even bringing in family members as Cord. he did indeed do a good job with teh Chargers...but there was a huge draft trade that helped that out bigtime....also noting...he was sooo hard to get along with...he was fired in SD after a 13 and 3 season.

then came the Ol' ball coach.... Need I say more? he quit after two seasons and Gibbs wanted to coach again...

would you have Kept ol' Stevo?

Then Gibbs came....He did fairly well considering he didn't have a good QB on hand....But he wanted to go back to Carolina and be with his sick grandson who has cancer.

you blame Joe for leaving....

Now we have our current coach Zorn.

I really do not balme anyone for the turn over ...maybe question the choice to bring in steve...but that's it.
would you have kept

you would have wanted to keep Shotty

Curt Warner was the Seahawks running back for 8 years until 1990. This FO may not have a plan and trade maybe allergic to DL, OL, and draft picks but they do know how to manage a salary cap.

Don't you think that's because those coaches won? And not because of any long-term vision on the part of the owner.

I don't know if either has such a golden opportunity with the Skins. Washington's really a special teams player at this point in his career Hackett is coming off a down year in Carolina. Both might be better off elsewhere.

Jeremy Bridges looks like he may be a keeper. More a backup than a starter, but very solid blocker who's been fairly healthy. But if thinking about Cody Glenn's possible transgressions upsets you, for Pete's sake don't look up Bridges' record. It's not sterling.

Well, it figures. Ignore the two biggest needs. Fool your fanbase into thinking you've at least drafted for one of them. So instead of a start-now rookie D-Lineman you'll have a start-in-a-year-or-two out-of-position linebacker. Grrrreeeaaatttt...

Vintage Snyderatto. Watch for Okie to get burneded by some slot guys.

And now we're courting receivers who can't get onto other starting rosters...

Oh well, at least we're not Dallas. btw - definitely hoping their folks pull through ok. Shocking about the storm.
