Every year, it is easy to say goodbye to players that we consider to be candidates for release. Too, it is difficult to say goodbye to players who are appreciated for their hard work and dedication. Here is a brief summation of these players.

John Beck The reasons are obvious. The Redskins should simply move on from Beck.
Mike Sellers A core member of the team, but age is now pushing him out the door.
Jammal Brown Too many injuries and he is all but ineffective.
Sean Locklear He was never a fit in DC.
Donte Stallworth This is a tough call, but tilts slightly to releasing due to possible newcomers and current depth chart.
Rocky McIntosh He is not a fit in this defensive scheme.
Phillip Buchanon No longer a factor for the Redskins.
LaRon Landry Injuries are an ongoing concern. Ineffective at times and celebrates a tackle after the opposing team has acquired a major chunk of yardage. Attitude is a concern as well.

Part three is coming soon and it will take a look at free agents who could be a good choice for the Redskins.

    I would keep Buchanon, as he would fit as the 3rd CB in the slot. He was a non-factor last year due to injury (after suspension). He would be better in the slot than Westbrook (not tendered an offer) and Gomes, who was ineffective in the slot. Barnes, Bellamy, and Thompson can't seem to break the starting lineup. Buchanon is starting material, at least as a #3.


    Options are limited at safety, and with Landry unwilling to fix his ankle the right way, we could get him for a 1-year deal.

    We still need to draft a CB/S in the 3rd or 4th round though.
