So Far ... Nothing
Pretty quiet out here. Could still pull off a trade - even the Briggs trade - but will probably come down to the wire on the clock. Should the Browns take Joe Thomas as NFL Network is reporting, then the Skins might be sitting pretty and really be able to swing a trade down with a team like Miami that wants a young QB.
Just to clarify, the Bears have been asking for draft picks besides the 6th overall. The Rocky part of this died a while back and this Lemar Marshall business is dubious at best. The Skins are worried about their LB depth, with Marcus's hip injury a concern and Rocky's knee a worry as well. Lemar and Khary Campbell are pretty it when it coems to LB depth, so to trade Lemar now - who has more value to the Redskisn than he would in a trade or to any other franchise coming off the season he had - would be tough.
Furthermore, the Bears don't like Lemar from everything I have heard, look at him as a special teams guy and figure they can do better than him in this draft in a mid round. So, why would a certain network start throwing Lemar's name around ... hmmm, well they are kind of in bed with Drew Rosenhaus and guess who recently adding Marshall to his stable of clients that already includes Briggs.
I have heard Lemar is not pleased at all about how this offseason has transpired, about Fletcher being signed to take his job and likely staring at spot duty and teams duty. A trade migth be the best thing for him personally - and rightfully so - so his agent gets his name out there in the national media, floats some stuff and maybe, just maybe, puts a little heat on the Skins.
In the end it probably amounts to nothing - although's Lemar's state of mind bears some monitoring - and maybe they do end up trading Lemar should the Skins acquire ample LB depth, but to make it out that Lemar is the lynchpin to a potential blockbuster trade is disingenuis at best.
Anyway, we'll see what happens and let the good times roll. Also, Cyn Cyty called me at 8:30 this morning to tell me we hit 50,000. Flipping unbelievable. You guys are out of control. Amazing. I'm not worhty.
