Skins Offer Deals to Washington, Hackett (Updated)

The Redskins have offered contracts to veteran free agent wide receivers Kelley Washington and D.J. Hackett, who participated in minicamp this weekend, a league source said. Washington is expected to decide on the Redskins' offer after visiting the Baltimore Ravens this week. Hackett was expected to take a physical this afternoon and planned to sign with the team today, a league source said.

I'll be the FIRST to say I like this idea. Tall veteran WR, we could use one. Are Thrash's days numbered - again?

This is the best news to come out of mini camp. I imagine they will be used primarily in the red zone.

Zorn Still Not Wild About the Wildcat

As he promised last fall, Coach Jim Zorn has taken a look at the increasingly popular Wildcat formation and considered whether to use some of its single-wing principles in his offense. It turns out he's still not a big Wildcat guy.—JASNO

Why? Has offensive genius Zorn reviewed his dynamic offense from last year and felt it scored too many points and was demoralizing opponents?

Yeah, ignore the Wildcat. Go ahead Jimmy, put down your dodgeball equipment long enough to install a second running play and pass patterns your dumb guy second year receivers can remember.

Cue Jasno hammering the Skins for signing a player with a questionable background.

Yes because it is ALL HIS FAULT. He snuck into the Redskins FO, put a gun to Snyderatto’s head, and forced him to sign this bozo, or else.

I too blame the media for all bad news, and especially for unearthing this relic from the NFL scrap heap. On the positive side, he doesn’t weigh 400 pounds, and he has actually put on a jock since 2006.

Good to have a couple experienced WR on the roster for training camp. Hackett gets hurt getting out of bed and Washington is Thrash-lite so they will fit right in!

Between Malcolm Kelly and D.J. Hackett, we should have an impressive receiver to watch for about 14 games a year. I like this.

Counting on Hacket to play 13 games is a risk.

I was thinking more like they'd each get involved in 7 games a piece, then break. Like the villain in Unbreakable.

That's the stupidest statement I've read in a long time. It wasn't JC who tried to trade for Cutler and tried to acquire Sanchez, and didn't seem to be trying very hard to keep these attempts a secret. The QB "drama" this off-season has been ENTIRELY the creation of the FO. No wonder the person wanted to remain anonymous; I wouldn't want to attach my name to such drivel, either.

re: the statement in La Canfora's last post about Orakpo, it's easy to look good running around in your shorts. I'm not putting any credence in this until they put on the pads and start hitting this summer.

Easy to look good running around in your shorts huh? I'd bet you'd have trouble pulling that off (as would most posting on this blog, myself included)

First off, JLC is not JC. Second, promoting drama and creating drama are 2 different things. One starts it, the other uses it for hits on their blog.

The O/U on games played this yr for Kelly is 6. I'm taking the under because they should have put him on IR last yr and this will be another wasted yr for him. Memo to Vinny don't take players with medical red flags and try to keep it to under 2 ACL/MCL injuries while this kids are in school.

Back to the Bridges signing, I'm glad to see us address the O-line and proudly add a member of the TMRzoo NFL Total Jackass Team (TJT) 2008: Offense.

The only "bad" news is, we could have cornered the market and had a majority share (2/9) of the prestigious TJT!!! ...if only Snyderatto had successfully given away 2 of our first round picks last year in exchange for Ocho Stinko!

Clearly you're not spending enough time reading the National News section.

Are the Skins showing interest in Guard Brian Waters and Tackle Levi Jones ?

Posted by: friendofalobar | May 3, 2009 6:29 PM | Report abuse

Why do we need to sigh receivers when we drafted great ones last year?
What a joke.

Signing "trash heap" receivers when the Skins are need of OL help. Some more great moves by Synderrato. Hahaha!
