Redskins Signing TE Richard Rodgers

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I remember he was pretty good when w/ Green Bay but of course he didn’t do much playing behind Ertz & Goddert.

He’s a big guy (6’4, 257) so that would help with blocking, but with a guy like him at his age though I’d hope our young guys beat him out.

They've given up on 2020. They just want cheap, good locker room guys to establish the culture while their young core develops. Its a breathe of fresh air to be honest.

Or do we want to get a few big time FAs and run it back? Because thats the same thing as Bruce saying "we're close" for 3 years when we were never close.

Signing a bunch of scrubs who won’t make your team better isn’t really improving anything and when we’re terrible I have no clue how that will help the “culture”?

Oh, and letting your young talent play an entire season, develop and grow together while getting another top 10 pick in next years draft will very likely improve the team!

Turtle, just stop. Every year you drink from that giant cup of Kool-Aid and every year you’re proving wrong as we spend the next couple years cutting those backups that we signed for no reason whatsoever. When Sweitzer and the gang are all out of the NFL in a year or two we can revisit this off-season and just how much it changed the culture.

Even in that way the plan will have worked bc they didn’t sign big free agents for 4 plus years so they’ll save the cap space to re-sign their own drafted talent while the cheap vets they sign now will be gone.

Wouldnt you rather keep Scherff, Terry, Allen, Payne amongst others who hopefully emerge or we draft next year rather then paying $30 million combined for Cooper and Hooper?

I understand being frustrated but you’re not opening yourself to the other alternative in not overpaying for those free agents this offseason and what that could mean for this team in a few years when they could have one of the youngest playoff contending teams in the NFL.
