The Big Spending Is Over

I am not ruling out a trade this offseason, but in terms of big signings, this appears to be it. Coach Joe said he was not pressed to do something at guard or tight end right now - although does plan on addresssing those positions at some point - and they are comfortable at corner (again, still not ruling out Springs being dealt at some point, particularly after June when the cap hit is less).

There are no other free agent visits planned at this point. Chances are they will re-sign Todd Yoder ( and probably another TE as well) and I would stunned if Ade Jimoh was not re-signing within the next week or so (vet min, y'all). Kozlowski and Duckett not in their plans as earlier reports, same with Holdman and Wright. Todd Wade wants to start and has not been in touch with the Skins recently and does not plan on coming back here, but the Skins would love to have him for depth. But he's going to get a shot to play someplace else. James Posey interest them a bit from what I hear, but would only be a late spring type guy brought in should injuries arise or a need present itself for some reason. No urge to sign him anytime soon.

So that takes care of Washington's free agents.

Depth corners from outside the organizationb like Fisher or Jamar Fletcher could alway be had late in free agency as well should they opt for even more depth, but are nothing close to a priority right now.

As for LaVar, we made more calls today and continue to hear that he has been down in the dumps lately and pondering retirement. Have not been able ot track him down just yet - so this is all what other players are hearing at this point - but hope to do so.

Dealer,

He seemed geniunely happy to be back. He said that he never should have left, has learned from his experiences and been humbled by them, and felt that he was coming home. He looked forward to working with coaches and a system and players that he knew.

Go Terps.

really really sorry to hear about lavar. but for his sake, his mental health, i think he needs to come back. and i hope he comes back and does well. hopefully bellichoke can take him under his wing. what else is he going to do? play golf? he's got all his life to do that.

Posted by: dealer | March 4, 2007 1:37 PM | Report abuse

thanks mark. hopefully we'll hear something like that from lavar (eventhouh i'm not a big fan by any stretch but i guess we all want a hollywood ending)...

and yes, go terps! i kinda want them to lose early in the ACC tournament. and then "kill" everyone in the ncaa. cuz i think if they go deep in the acc they're gonna be tired. this 7 game streak's been just amazing. seeing how teams like VA. va-tech, duke, unc have been having "letdown" games...

Lavar & his relationship with the Skins was ruined by that idiot agent of his who he somehow is so loyal to!!!!

I hope for the best for Lavar, I would like to see him continue to play. He was our heart and soul during some dark times, you can't forget that.

Posted by: chris larry | March 4, 2007 1:47 PM | Report abuse

yep, i can't understand him being loyal to his agent either. unless his agent gave him some of his own money to save his career. if not i guess it's a good deed he's doing and you know what they say about good deeds right? "a good deed never goes unpunished!"... right lisa?

CL you're no fun today. lol

Posted by: jm220 | March 4, 2007 2:07 PM | Report abuse

LaVar was loyal becuse he felt that was the right thing to do. Like I was told before by my elders when standing up for something ill-concieved - You gotta examine what's going on and what's best for the future of YOUR FAMILY. You can't be worried about others when you have mouths to feed.

So I believe he choose to make a stand here in sticking up for his agent, but that might have burnt a bridge with the team that he prob could have come back to.......

Question - How many people will manaually change their Smoooot Jersey's with a Burgundy Marker???

Lavar brought all his troubles on himself. Sure, he had a bad agent, but Lavar's a grown man.

He couldn't get along with his coaches and he couldn't play with the team. Everything was about him.

And then when things went bad, he couldn't take responsibility for his actions but he tried to blame anyone in sight except himself or his agent.

He deserves to be out of football. What a sad waste his ego made of his talents.

I'll believe that the spending is over when Leonard Davis is confirmed as a Dallas Cowboy. In other news, I hear that Randy Moss is an option in a trade w/ the #6 pick. Also, my sources tell me that the team agreed to send a fifth round pick this year and a third in '08 to Denver in exchange for Fred Smoot.

Hey peeps! Here's the Skins' release on the presser:


Head Coach Joe Gibbs

On signing Fred Smoot:
"Fred and I had a long talk yesterday afternoon. What I said to him was that a lot of us make mistakes in life, at least I do. In this case it was a bad feeling that I had when we let Fred get out of here and I told Fred that. I think he is a Redskin. I took a lot of heat in town which was deserved. I told Fred that a lot of us make mistakes but it is not often in life where you have a chance to make up for it. That is what we are doing here. Fred and I had a great talk yesterday."

"We think Fred is a Redskin and he has a lot of people here that care about him. It is a happy day for us to be able to get a chance to get him back."

"I want to address one thing. Fred and I addressed the off the field incident, which I know is going to come up. We had a great talk yesterday. Fred and I have a good understanding. He knows what is expected of him. He is a Redskin and cares a lot about this organization. We had a good talk about that. He knows where I am coming from."

On what they liked about Fred Smoot:
"One of the things that makes us happy is Fred being as young as he is. You are talking about someone who is 27 years old and we think that is great for us."

On cornerback Shawn Springs:
"Earlier this week, I told him that we are counting on him being here. We want him to be here. We have had some discussions and we are almost lined up. We know Shawn is a very valuable part of this football team."


Fred Smoot (CB, #27)

On signing with the Redskins:
"I want to thank Dan Snyder for giving me the chance to come back home. I feel like this is my home. I don't have to learn new coaches or a new city. It is like moving into that old room in my momma's house. It is good to be back. It is a breath of fresh air. I am really loving the situation. I have been smiling since last night and it has nothing to do with the contract. It has to do with the fact that I am comfortable and now I can play my game and be myself again."

On Coach Gibbs saying he thought it was a mistake letting him go two years ago:
"I thought it was a mistake leaving. We meet on a medium right there. Like he said, a lot of people don't get a second chance to make something right. I have a second chance to make it right."

On if he considered any other teams:
"Not really, plus coach did not let me get on my plane yesterday. I was supposed to leave at five and he said, 'No lets talk a little bit longer'. I was not trying to leave. I did not really have any other interests. Money was not what I was chasing this time. It was a chance to be happy and play a high level of football. This will be my first time playing with the same defensive coordinator in my career. A chance to do that in itself opened up a door for me."

On playing with Carlos Rogers (CB, #22) and Shawn Springs (CB, #24):
"I know Gregg Williams (Assistant Head Coach - Defense) and he will not hesitate to put the best out there on the field. I will let that play itself out. I know he will put the best two out there and most of the time it will be all three of us out there anyway. I am going to let Gregg handle that."

On when he first came into the league playing with Champ Bailey and Darrell Green and if that experience made him less concerned about whether he would start or not:
"Right now, I am concerned about winning. It doesn't matter where I fit in that puzzle, I am going to give it 100%. I know Coach is going to put us in a place to win. I think the off season moves that we made will make us a contender. Whatever it takes to win that is what I came here to do."

On what happened in Minnesota on the field:
"I never got comfortable for one. I am an emotional player and I love to play the game with my emotion. I never really got comfortable there. I always felt like a step child. Now I am back in my momma's house and I can feel good, comfortable and am ready to play football. I never got going there. Every time I got going something happened. My brother died, the boat situation and the car accident. A lot of stuff happened and it humbled me a lot. I am going to live every day like my last and not take anything for granted."

On what he got out of the two year experience in Minnesota that he might not have gotten had he stayed in Washington:
"There is not always greener grass on the other side. You have to make decisions in your life based on more than financial needs. You need to make it on life after football. This is the perfect place for me to be part of the community. I feel like more than just a football player here."

On what kind of player the fans are going to get:
"They are getting a player that has been through a lot. You can't get glass without it going through a lot of changes and then it comes out smooth. I am that smooth part right now. I know what I can do here. I have done that here. I think a lot had to do with the stuff that was happening off the field and it reflected my play on the field. I never got comfortable at that place. I always had something on my mind. Here I play with a clear head. I promise you this, they are going to get a Fred Smoot that has matured in a lot of ways and they will get a player that wants to win, point blank."

Beautiful Cindy! Thanks for coming back with gusto!

KK, yeah you got to take ownership and responsibility and lavar wasn't/isn't perfect. Maybe he didn't get along with coaches because he had a different coach every year. If home boy can get along with JoePa in college and come out as a top #5 pick in the draft (where's Peter Warrick these days?) then I think he's proven he works well under consistency and structure... I don't know LaVar personally and didn't really keep track of him too much at Penn State, but to be such a big personality as himself, he didn't fit in the redskins system that was undergoing a lot of change and upheaval. Not downplaying his own part in that. totally agree otherwise... but to say you're glad to see him gone after all the great things he did here in DC (with the exception of Eastern Motors commercials)

Posted by: Dorf | March 4, 2007 3:00 PM | Report abuse

Paterno criticized LaVar too. It was after LaVar left I think, right before the draft, but he said LaVar needed to learn to play within a defense better and quit freelancing so much.

Obviously LaVar didn't listen to him...

Posted by: Leon | March 4, 2007 3:07 PM | Report abuse

LaVar didn't really listen then, that was like 8 years ago... I guess he could get by in college with sheer talent.

All I know is that I wouldn't have like to play defense for the Skins in the early 2000's.

Cowboys to add Davis to offensive line
By Michael Smith
ESPN.com

The Dallas Cowboys are finalizing an agreement with free agent offensive lineman Leonard Davis, the second pick in the 2001 NFL draft who has played the last six seasons for the Arizona Cardinals, a source with knowledge of the negotiations told ESPN.com.

Davis, 6-feet-6, 366 pounds, is expected to play either right tackle or right guard for the Cowboys, depending on the resolution of contract talks with current Cowboys right tackle Marc Columbo, an unrestricted free agent the Cowboys hope to re-sign.

Davis' contract is expected to exceed the free agent deals of Bills guard Derrick Dockery (7 years, $49 million) and Browns guard Eric Steinbach (7 years, $49.5 million).

Davis visted the Washington Redskins and was considering a visit to the New York Giants, but decided on the Cowboys due to a desire to stay close to his hometown of Wortham, Texas, just south of Dallas.

It's good to see Smoot is now humble. Im guessing that he will end up a starting corner again at some point. SS has to be thinking of retirement in the next few seasons. No point in LaVar doing the come back for a day and retire thing, he is not HOF matterial and I don't think the skins will retire no. 56.

dealer, all of the pieces have fallen into place this weekend. More at 6:30 pm.

Posted by: LH | March 4, 2007 4:05 PM | Report abuse

Regarding the Springs/Smoot/Rogers CB conundrum -

G. Williams admitted his defensive secondary plan wasn't working and there would be modifications to it. Meanwhile, right after the season ended, Gibbs talked to Springs about possibly playing free safety, to which Springs was amenable. Further, Rogers is allegedly spending part of the off-season working with Darrell Green on CB techniques. (In case you have forgotten, the only real technique that Darrell knew well was playing man-to-man.)

Based on all of this (along with a Smoot PC comment), it appears that G. Williams may be looking at using Smoot/Springs/Rogers as something that might be called "umbrella" coverage; Smoot and Rogers playing man-to-man on the corners with Springs in the deep middle for double teams and deep tight ends, etc. Or they could leave Springs on the corner and let Rogers play the deep middle, which would protect him from the majority of double-move issues.

Where does that leave Sean Taylor? In the short middle, 5-10 years behind the MLB, taking on tight ends and slot receivers when he isn't forcing on the run. It utilizes his speed for sideline-to-sideline coverage (much like a deep MLB) in run support, puts him closer to the line of scrimmage for blitzes, and he doesn't have to worry about receivers getting behind him with Springs further back.

If this scheme sounds familiar, it's because it is a traditional strong safety/free safety scheme. In this case, however, it best fits the personnel available and closes the gaping hole in the G. Williams Hybrid Cover-2.

The biggest requirement of this scheme is the linebackers must be quick, strong, and reliable tacklers. Fletcher is an important piece. Washington needs to get healthy. Marshall and Rocky need to figure out the weak side.

I have one question that is if Joe Gibbs, moves upstaris and the next coach for this team asks for General manager, do you think that Joe, will accomodate him and if so wouldn;t that mean the end for Vinnie Cerrato, which I don't Believe he is earning his keep with this team as Dan Snyder, Pointed out in the past that he made a mistake by choosing Norv turner, over Charley Casserly, one thing i'am not understanding is that why he won't rectify that mistake, unless he's trying to be another Jerry Jones,also the reason this team is still not successful is because he's still meddling too much despite he fact he told Joe Gibbs he won't meddle anymore. I also believe that Snyder cares more about making money than seeing his team succeed.

Posted by: armen | March 5, 2007 7:06 PM | Report abuse

Steve B, I don't understand where you are coming from saying LaVar was one of the biggest first round busts in history. He went to the Pro Bowl 3 times, and his play only feel off after a string of injuries. That is like saying Bo Jackson never was any good. No need to insult a player because you are unhappy with how the situation benefited your team.
