    • Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2016 (Continual Updates)

      Our Final Update:
      Greetings from the office of BBQ World Headquarters.

      Personal issues have curtailed entries in recent weeks, but the efforts to pursue Redskins information never ceases.

      Welcome to our final update in this thread/blog for 2016 unless unusual or extraordinary circumstances dictate otherwise. We’ll have new blogs during training camp that focuses on predicting the 53 final roster selections and 2016 season predictions.

      In other words, BBQ is going to take a multi-week week hiatus and confront the challenges of this summer. We’ll have updates as needed in the “Random Redskins Thoughts” or other Redskins news threads.

      When mid-October arrives, BBQ will begin to compile a new database for the 2017 draft and offseason. So yes, I’m thankful for this “vacation” and the time needed to heal.

      We have one category of updates this week – something I do on occasion, my own (read, me – BB) personal thoughts on a few subjects.

      Let’s get right to it.

      Personal Thoughts:
      I really believe that the running back situation is a mess. To a man, Matt Jones is a very good third down back and nothing more. Chris Thompson is too brittle. The rest is just camp fodder. My suggestion: Offer the Chiefs a conditional seventh rounder for Knile Davis and sign Arian Foster to a one year deal. Foster would likely be fine for half or three-fourths of a season – then add Pierre Thomas at that juncture as he knows the offense.

      Despite some persistent rumors out there, I don’t think the Redskins trade DeSean Jackson this offseason. I do think this is his last year in a Redskins uniform.

      Speaking of the running game. We know that Bill Callahan calls the running plays. That duty was taken from him when he coached for the Cowboys. No one denies that he is a great offensive line coach, but is his play calling for the team holding them back in the running game? If so, would a contract with more beef convince him to give up play calling duties?

      I really don’t think the Lions like the idea of replacing Calvin Johnson with Andre Roberts. In fact, I’m predicting that he gets cut before the season begins.

      Part of me thinks Alfred Morris does not make the final cut. If he does, another part of me thinks he gets cut during the season. This is not a hater comment, it’s just how I see it.

      I believe a long term deal gets done with Kirk Cousins at or just before the deadline. The numbers: I’m thinking $51M guaranteed, six year deal at $118M.

      I have this funny feeling that Kyshoen Jarrett’s career is over. If so, this is a real shame. He was quickly becoming a very special player.

      I truly believe that Elephant and Bulldog’s Twin nailed it when they said the Redskins have gotten the LT position right for a long time (“30+ years”).

      Hail To The Redskins!
