      Burner’s Burning Questions – Offseason Edition, Free Agency 2014

      It is time to put the miserable 2013 season behind us and look forward to free agency, the draft, and a new coaching staff. In this first edition of the offseason of free agency, we will take a look at players that the Redskins could target, re-sign, release, and tender. We will continue this thread with updates until the start of the new season – March 11. After that time, periodic updates will follow. The first offseason mock draft will be posted in about two weeks and will have regular updates starting in mid-March.

      Here are some of the free agents that could be targeted. Obviously, the Redskins can’t sign each player, but having substantial cap room allows for some flexibility. Who do you like in this list and who would you avoid?

      Anthony Collins (T), Age: 28,29
      Austin Howard (T), Age: 27
      Rodger Saffold (T), Age: 26
      Geoff Schwartz (G), Age: 28
      John Jerry (G), Age: 28
      Jon Asamoah (G), Age: 26
      Alex Mack (C), Age: 28,29
      Evan Dietrich-Smith (C), Age: 28

      Julian Edelman, Age: 28

      Brandon Myers, Age: 28,29
      Scott Chandler, Age: 29

      Lamarr Houston (DE), Age: 27
      Arthur Jones (DE), Age: 28
      Linval Joseph (DT), Age: 25,26
      Randy Starks (DT, DE), Age: 30

      Donald Butler, Age: 25,26
      Brandon Spikes, Age: 27
      Vinny Rey (RFA), Age: 27

      Jason Worilds, Age: 26

      Vontae Davis, Age: 26
      Sam Shields, Age: 26,27
      Aqib Talib, Age: 28

      Jairus Byrd, Age: 27,28
      Chris Clemons, Age: 28,29
      T.J. Ward, Age: 27,28
      Mike Mitchell, Age: 27

      BBQ would like to see five of these players signed and prefers Anthony Collins, Geoff Schwartz, Alex Mack or T.J. Ward (one will be franchised by the Browns), Lamarr Houson, and Linval Joseph. Do you agree or disagree? Are there other players that you would like to see on this list? Each player listed has his age displayed for when the season begins in September. Some have two ages listed for in-season birthdays.

      Trying to decide who should stay and who should go is a difficult task, but BBQ takes a stab at it.

      Players To Retain:
      Brian Orakpo (OLB), Age: 28
      Perry Riley (ILB), Age: 26
      DeAngelo Hall (CB, S[?]), Age: 30,31
      Chris Baker (DE, DT), Age: 26,27
      Reed Doughty (S, ST), Age: 31, 32
      Rob Jackson (OLB), Age: 28,29
      Darryl Tapp (OLB), Age: 29,30
      J.D. Walton (C), Age: 27
      Aldrick Robinson (WR)(ERFA), Age: 25, 26
      Jose Gumbs (S)(ERFA), Age: 26

      Players To Release/Not Re-Sign:
      Rex Grossman
      Santana Moss
      Josh Morgan
      Fred Davis
      Josh Wilson
      Stephen Bowen
      Kedric Golston
      Adam Carriker
      London Fletcher
      Doug Worthington
      Bryan Kehl
      Dezmon Briscoe
      Nick Barnett
      E.J. Biggers
      Chris Chester
      Kyle Nelson
      Tyler Polumbus
      Jawan Jamison
      Baccari Rambo
      Troy Kropog
      Tanard Jackson

      It’s a long list, but a 3-13 record usually means a number of players must go and a certain number stays. What are your preferences?

      Players To Keep - Camp Fodder/Practice Squad:
      David Gettis
      Tevita Stevens
      Richard Quinn
      Kevin Kowalski
      Robert Malone
      Gabe Miller
      Ryan Mouton
      Trent Robinson
      Adrian Robinson

      Bubble Players To Keep For Now:
      Josh Bellamy
      Tom Compton
      Will Compton
      Richard Crawford
      Adam Gettis
      DaJohn Harris
      Josh Hull
      Maurice Hurt
      Jeremy Kimbrough
      Josh LeRibeus
      Miguel Maysonet
      Chase Minnifield
      Chris Neild
      Niles Paul
      Evan Royster
      Chris Thompson

      Many of these players are mostly longshots and while some will make the opening day roster, others will fight for a practice squad designation or try to impress other teams.

      There you have it – the first installment of BBQ’s look at free agency, 2014. Feel free to discuss these players and what you think the team should do in free agency.

      An added note: Aldrick Robinson was signed to a one year contract and that will be reflected in the next edition.

      Hail To The Redskins!
