    • Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2015 (Continual Updates)

      Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2015 (Continual Updates)

      Welcome to the 2015 offseason. We are taking a different approach for the new football year as we combine our mocks with the free agency period. We’ll have periodic updates as warranted and will use just this one entry instead of posting multiple blogs.

      This week we take our second look at free agency. With a new football GM in place, the Redskins are expected to be minor players in the FA market, but one or two signings of heightened significance can’t be ruled out. Earlier this month we had our first mock – feel free to scroll back and see what was posted. The mocks will be on a hiatus until early March. The mocks will slowly increase in number as we get closer to the draft.

      Feel free to offer your own ideas about the draft, free agency, team cuts, coaching changes, and anything else related to these subjects. Too, we’d like to see your mocks if you are so inclined.

      Kai Forbath, K - Tendered
      Tom Compton, LT - Tendered
      Travian Robertson, DT – Tendered
      Rishaw Johnson, OT – Tendered

      Possible Cuts And Cap Savings:
      Stephen Bowen - $5.5 Million
      Barry Cofield - $5.0 Million
      DeAngelo Hall - $4.0 Million
      Chris Chester - $4.0 Million
      Perry Riley - $3.0 Million
      Shawn Lauvao - $3.0 Million
      Andre Roberts - $2.75 Million
      Tracy Porter - $2.3 Million
      Logan Paulsen – $1.75 Million
      Josh LeRibeus - $700,000

      Available Free Agents:

      Jake Locker, Titans
      Ryan Mallett, Texans
      Mark Sanchez, Eagles
      Matt Moore, Dolphins

      Preferred choice is Moore.

      Running Backs, Fullbacks:
      Stevan Ridley, Patriots

      Very underrated and is likely the best RB on that roster.

      Tight Ends:
      Jermaine Gresham, Bengals
      Virgil Green, Broncos

      Green is an excellent blocker and should receive serious consideration.

      Wide Receivers:

      Offensive Tackles:

      Offensive Guards:
      Clint Boling, Bengals

      Mike Iupati is the preferred choice and should be a top target, but BBQ believes that it would be too expensive and this goes against the philosophy of the new GM.


      Defensive Tackles:
      Muhammad Wilkerson, Jets
      Ahtyba Rubin, Browns

      Either one would be a good solution for the DT woes. Both are likely affordable.

      Defensive Ends:
      Jared Odrick, Dolphins
      Corey Peters, Falcons

      Odrick may prove to be too expensive, but the Redskins should try to sign if possible.

      Outside Linebackers:
      Pernell McPhee, Ravens
      Jabaal Sheard, Browns
      Brandon Graham, Eagles

      McPhee is the preferred choice. Graham probably is a better fit. Sheard could be the best of the lot with experience at DE as well – could be special in a hybrid 3-4 scheme – excellent size.

      Inside Linebackers:
      Rey Maualuga, Bengals
      Spenser Paysinger, Giants

      It will depend on what is done with Perry Riley and the draft. Paysinger is solid in coverage packages.

      Chris Culliver, 49ers
      Walter Thurmond III, Giants

      Neither stands out, but depth is needed and Thurmond is a former pick of Scot McCloughan.

      Da'Norris Searcy, Bills
      Sergio Brown, Colts
      Ron Parker, Chiefs

      Searcy is the preferred choice and Brown would bring special teams abilities. Parker could be signed - if affordable. He is a SS with considerable experience at CB.

      Special Teams:
      None. A returner should be targeted as an UDFA after the draft.

      There is your second look at free agency for the 2015 offseason. Feel free to add names to the list or subtract from what has been posted. Who do you prefer to be the main target in free agency? Who would you keep? Who would you not re-sign? Who would you cut (next FA list will include possible cuts)? That is all for now, but the updates will certainly increase in volume and frequency. See you as we go along.

      Hail To The Redskins!
