Redskins Right on Track

18 million dollars in cap penalties certainly hasn’t slowed down the Redskins on the first day of free agency. Washington has been busy the past few days, and I have to say I like what I’m seeing so far. Going out to get Griffin was huge. It’s a risk worth taking for a team in desperate need of a franchise guy in a year with limited options available. Griffin is an athletic guy with a lot of talent and a big arm, he’s everything you could want out of a QB and he should succeed in Washington. He certainly won’t be short of weapons with the early signings of Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan. I mentioned both wide outs earlier today as potential fits for Jacksonville, but these are guys who should fit in Washington just as well. Garcon has been showing some immense talent and is still young. Morgan is a high character guy, only 26 years old and was on the verge of a break out season with the 49ers last year before he went to the IR in week 5.

The Redskins are doing exactly what they said they would when they brought in Mike Shannhan, they are laying off of expensive older veterans and guys with off field issues and focusing on young guys with tons of potential in hopes of catching them all in their primes a few years from now without sacrificing being competitive in the short term…okay so that second goal may have faded out after the 3-0 start last season, but the free agents guys they brought in on defense were the bright spots in a bleak season.
