Rookie Camp - It's Not Just For Rookies

Hello there, hope all is well.

Out here at rookie camp, where the thrills are constant, and wanted to update you guys on the roster. There are always a few vets and practice sqauders in the mix, guys working out to get a look-see and fill out the roster.

RB Derrick Blaylock, who played 4 years for Al Saunders in KC and has played 51 NFL games with 8 starts, was brought in for camp. He also has return skills and has 10 TDs in his career. Not too shabby. RB Ran Carthon, who has played 9 games for Indy and Detroit, is here as well, and it seems like RB depth has clearly been pondered by the Skins. Could find someone to push Rock Cartwright, and also as depth with Portis coming off two surgeries.

TE has clearly been an area of concern, and vet Zach Hilton is here as well. He was with the Jets last year and started 6 games for New Orleans in 2005.

For these guys, getting into an NFL team now is an advantage - you don't have to wait until mini camp or training camp and you are lining up against less experienced players. Also, they are still un-signed, so don't have to sign with anyone now and can get a feel for the organization as well before moving forward.

"In Zach's case, the Redskins have some good tight ends on the roster, but there seems to be some opportunity at his position as well," said Paul Sheehy, Hilton's agent. "We'll see how it goes and both sides can take it for a test drive and we'll see where it goes. Sometimes it's better to come in early for this camp without a contract and both sides can go forward and see what kind of fit there it."

Sheehy has two other free agents here as well, although K Reagan Schneider is a rookie, as is Indiana safety Troy Grosfield.

Other players in town this weekend have been here before for a brief spell or even an entire season, like DE Joe Sykes, or for training camp, like DT Vana Manapuna. Others are recent draft picks, like LaRon Landry, and guys recently signed as undrafted free agents, like Maryland QB Sam Hollenbach, and NFL limited experience NFL free agents recently signed, like kicker Tyler Fredrickson, who spent time with Dallas.

There are two local high school products among the rookie free agents signed this week - RB Marcus Mason, who was a stud at Georgetown Prep back in the day (he went to Youngstown State) and RB Terry Caulley, from Patuxent HS, who went to UConn. DE Alex Buzbee went to Georgetown - noted football factory as it is - and for hi just getting to this day is an accomplishment.

All of these guys not named Landry are longshots to some degree, but, as Coach Joe says, there might also be "some stories" on this roster. of guys who find a way to stick around despite the odds.

I hope to post again later. I have been compiling a lot of info on NFL defensive ends that might surprise you guys and getting a feel for the trade market at that position as well.

And, finally, thanks yet again for all of the well wishes and support this week. Chloe is doing much better now, thanks, after an scare the other night with the croup, and Rocco still has his cold, but, it seems like he is adopting his universal approach to life and merely trying to eat his way through the sickness. He put on 4 pounds in his first 4 weeks, sucking down milk at a head-spinning rate, to increase his heft by 50 percent. So he's got that going for him.

Thanks again and hope to get the DE stuff up later, but will do it Sat. at the latest. Cheers.

JLC - Posted this on earlier thread - Since you're doing rookie camp duty I'd be curious to know Landry's take on playing against Campbell. As a four year starter at LSU he probably faced him his freshman and sophmore? years.

Posted by: skinswest | May 4, 2007 12:53 PM | Report abuse

J-la glad the fam is doing better. Please give us the update the the skins are trying to get at least one DE. We could use a DT as well but at minimum we gotta get a DE. If we could manage a big DT and just a slightly above average DE I might start drinking the kool-aid myself. Upgrading the Dline in my humble opinion is a must and is the difference b/w 8 - 8 and 10 - 6!

My question is, was the Randy Moss for a 4th round pick trade an anomaly, indicative of the Raiders' desperation and general ineptitude, or is it possibly a sign that trade value of draft picks relative to veteran players is starting to drift upward?

If we're talking about a 4th or 5th rounder for a good solid veteran D linemen who can still bring pressure, I'm all for it.

It's losing our 2nd, 3rd AND 4th round picks in this draft which left a bad taste in all our mouths. (But let's recall that those picks went out in several moves, and then we belatedly realized how freakin' stupid it was not to pick between the first and fifth rounds. And it wouldn't have looked as bad if we'd hit on ONE of those moves. But alas...)

So again, now that we avoided a crazy stupid move in the frenzy before the draft and on draft weekend, and we dodged a bullet when the Bears didn't go for our Briggs trade offer, I wouldn't be averse to giving up ONE '08 pick for a veteran guy who could be starter on the D line.

(My preference would be that the FO knows something about June 1 cuts and will have Redskin One pushing away from the gate at 10pm on May 31 to go get our new D tackle and D end...)

Oh wait, what was the FINAL verdict, do we forfeit our fourth rounder next year to someone else or not? I can't recall how that came out when we talked about it a few days ago.

i wished all of you would face the facts that our d-line is going to be fine. the defense is going to play alot better. we really upgraded at corner and linebacker. we are finally going to give Rocky his shot to be able to chase some plays down from behind. Griffin is going to come back stronger than last year and play a little better, not counting the fact we have Goldston and Montgomery for youth and developement. i think we also underestimate the fact that Daniels, Griffin, Wynn may be older, but the guys know what needs to be done to win and working with the younger guys last year and this offseason is going to pay big for us. we take for granted that these are some savvy guys. i hope most of you caught the DIP article that someone calculated. (our d-line is fine) we just need to find a young prospect to help rush on a few third downs. anyway if you asked me the real downfall of our team last year was that Portis's attitude our team leader and most explosive player wimpered and pouted alittle bit about doing his job and playing football and it hurt our team. it had our team emotionally unready for the season and it tricked down and we never recovered.

he already has a better attitude this year already because he realizes how much the team was feeding off of him

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | May 4, 2007 02:00 PM

That is a good point. Another example is what seems to be a lack of interest in other teams to give up a draft pick to move up in the first round. At the very least both the Redskins and the Lions were interested in trading down for extra picks but there weren't any takers.

So yeah, perhaps a 4th rounder (which the Redskins have already given away for next year I believe) might get a serviceable linemen to add depth.

I tend to agree that the d-line isn't quite as bad as some have made it out to be, but it is definitely injury-prone making depth a priority. We don't need a star, but one or two decent linemen might be nice.

Posted by: Johnnie Futbol | May 4, 2007 2:21 PM | Report abuse

I would doubt a trade at this point....far more likely we try to get some vet who is cut.....the vet could be a low cost replacement for wynn, but looks like our starter will be exactly the same as last year (except maybe Golston getting more time with Salave'a healthy)

Posted by: Jon | May 4, 2007 2:37 PM | Report abuse

The problem is that each time an individual move comes up people think "oh it's ok, it's just one fourth round draft pick"..but then trade after trade piles up, and you have this year with no 2,3, or 4.

I had an issue with us giving away draft picks last year...hence the screen name used here.

It's fine that there was no good value to trade out of the 6th pick...but let's face facts. The Redskins are more then one player away from being a Super Bowl champ, so the FO should stop giving up the future(ie the draft picks for now).

Yes not all draft picks pan out. Not all free agents pan out either. If I have a draft, I'd at least like to get the standard number of players(ie as close to 7)as possible and see what we can make of them with our expert coaching staff.

Consistent well played NFL teams are built through the draft and augmented by free agents, not built through free agency and augmented with the draft.

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | May 4, 2007 02:00 PM

The Randy Moss anomaly was all about the Raiders wanting badly to get rid of him. He had an exorbitant salary that he would not renegotiate (with two years left on the contract). He recently turned 30 and hasn't shown anything except a bad attitude lately. The new, very young coach didn't need a veteran player questioning his authority, ideas, or schemes. Finally, Moss didn't fit into the rebuilding program of the offensive unit. (By the time the offense is totally rebuilt, Moss will have one foot in retirement.) The best thing for the Raiders to do was try to get something/anything for him, because the alternative was to cut him and get nothing.

Considering the recent rises in salary cap level resulting in the ability of teams to more easily sign their best players to new contracts and extensions, the value of future draft picks have depreciated this year. Trading for a premier player under contract will cost more in draft picks in the future, rather than less.

Will Smith is demanding more money from the Saints, who just PAID Charles Grant a ton of money. Let's get Jiggy with it and trade for this guy.

Posted by: Big Murf

Will Smith is a starting DE on a playoff team. His performance has shown improvement each year. He is also still under his rookie contract, with two years remaining. (He won't even be a restricted free agent until AFTER the 2007 season.) The Saints don't have to do anything except wave his contract in his face. (Grant got his big contract after playing out his rookie contract and then being franchise-tagged. Why would they deal with Smith differently?)

For the sake of argument, let's say the Saints decide to get rid of him rather than listen to him complain for two years. What will be the price of a trade? If his numbers are close to Grant's numbers, and Grant was franchised, than the price for Smith will be two #1 draft picks - in 2008 and 2009. If Smith's numbers aren't quite as good as Grant's, than Smith's price will probably be the same as if he was a restricted free agent tendered at the highest level - which is a 1st and a 3rd round pick in 2008.

At the RFA compensation level, the Saints might take a 1st round pick + Springs from the Redskins in exchange for Smith, if they were motivated to get rid of him. But that assumes that no other team would offer more - a highly unlikely scenario.

So the question is: do you want to give up Springs + the 1st round pick in 2008 for a starting DE who may be really good, or who may just be the benefactor of having Grant play at the other DE spot? That's a pretty high price in either case.

There is one other tiny little problem - the Redskins don't really have the cap space to sign someone like Smith this year. They probably haven't even figured out how to pay Landry yet. (Yes, they know they can pay him, but who do they have to cut and restructure to make it happen?)

Will Smith is a pipedream for the Redskins, even if the Saints decide to let him go.

With reference to Andruzzi, it doesn't make sense for the Redskins to sign guards with old tired legs. The Redskins are a run-first offense, meaning the guards need to have young strong legs and good knees. Better they should find someone young and talented who can learn the schemes and pull every other play, than sign a veteran with feet of stone.

Posted by: Otter | May 4, 2007 4:18 PM | Report abuse

The 2008 cap situation will look just like the 2007 cap situation which looked just like the 2006 cap situation which looked...

The Redskins cap situation will always be an issue, because creative accounting is the only way the Redskins excel. Until the emphasis on building a team changes from "free agency first" to "draft first", the cap issue will remain a constant problem.

Continuing on with the issue of resigning and extending players and the high cost of doing so under the new inflated salary cap level, there are probably going to be a lot of June 1st cap casualties of name players with backloaded contracts. The Redskins will probably lead the pack in this category where the cap hits are favorable, but there are sure to be others. Particularly vulnerable will be those veterans who signed long term deals but whose production has begun to decline. I think that big DE names like KGB and Ogunleye will be on this list, and that is where the Redskins are hoping to fix the DE problem, at least on a short term basis.

Just digging around and found a salary cap chart for the Redskins. If these numbers are correct, the Redskins are in very bad shape, with no one left to restructure and lots of big escalations in salaries for stars next year. Guys like Portis and Samuels may be in their last year with the team. See for yourself.
(Numbers are expressed in millions of dollars, so 0.875 is $875,000, and 3.2 equals $3,200,000.)

I would never want to give up anything higher than a 2nd, but a 2nd rounder for a starting DE is worth it, as long as that is the only pick you trade away.....everyone is acting now like trading a pick is the worst thing ever now cause of this year's draft.....trading 3 or 4 picks every year is the worst thing ever...trading 1 pick in the third round or second round (where a starter isn't guaraunteed based on our recent history) for a young productive starter at a position of glaring need is prudent. And whoever said our dline will be fine....your a moron. The defense will be better but our dline won't be fine, the yards per carry have gone from 3.1 (2004), to 4.1 (2005), to 4.5 (2006) that is purely a fact that our dline has gotten old, injury prone, and below average talent-wise. The Saints need secondary help )Springs, LLoyd actually might be a little attractive to them since joe horn is gone and they only have Colston at WR, package the two of them and a 2nd and you just might get it done. That's not too steep a price to send two guys who probably won't be Redskins anyway after this season and a 2nd rounder for Will Smith to put him opposite Carter suddenly you might not have to blitz 37 lindebackers and 6 safeties to get the QB.

As terrified as I am of the prospect of him guiding this offense over a long stretch, I definitely prefer Brunell as our backup. Collins has practically no starting experience; over his virtually anonymous career as backup, he's thrown almost as few NFL passes as I have.

If Brunell has little chance of undergoing a Jeff Garcia-esque career rejuvenation, Collins has NO chance. His relationship with Saunders holds no weight here.

The only question is who will be the third QB on the roster, the kid QB and next in line after Soupy: Bramlet, Hollenbach or other?

Dudes, several things:

1) Spiderman 3 stinks. Cancel all plans to see it. I looked forward to it for months and am a huge dork. I felt robbed. It was like paying for the waiter to make potty in your soup and then beat you up for complaining about the taste.

2) The guy who likes the D line is not accurate. We don't have good football players in those positions.

3) I've thought all along that we would attempt to see what shook out with June cap cuts and guys getting released to fill spots at guard and along the defensive line because we didn't like what was in the draft. Not the best plan but people, it seems like the FO has a plan and that was enough to make me do a minor jig in my hotel room in Calgary.

4) No one is talking about campbell's development. This is easily the most important thing about our season. It infuriated me to no end when after a couple games, coaches were talking about his 'long release' as if it were a new discovery. I'm not going to get into that because my head might explode, but the fact that no one is talking about it is puzzling to me. Can any of you imagine a scenario where he isn't GREAT and we still win? I can't.

Good day.

June's kinda late for looking for an impact player ... you kinda get the feeling that the Spring camps were the chance for a declining player to shape up again, and if they didn't make the grade then ... It would be different if it was a good player who is just injured, if you have the patience. But for the most part, I think that teams have their players to pick from now.
