    Default Locking up 2nd will entice Free Agents

    Great article on how this will help in the Free Agent hunt.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/nfceast/post...skins-big-deal

    Officially, the trade that will send three first-round draft picks and a second-rounder from the Washington Redskins to the St. Louis Rams in exchange for this year's No. 2 pick can't be announced or finalized until the new league year opens Tuesday. But it has been agreed upon several days early, and there are some good reasons for that from the Redskins' standpoint.

    We can only hope he has matured with age and will be glad to play for a coach like Shanahan if he comes here. When was his last run in with trouble?

    I just hope we don't completely over-pay for his services like some articles are suggesting. He does not deserve the money that would make him the 2nd highest paid WR in the league.

    I am split on V-Jax.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    Forget Jackson, at 29 and with less than elite overall numbers he could be one of the major busts in this free agent class.

    He wants Fitgerald or Johnson money but isn't in that class.

    In fact Jackson seems like he is only about the money.

    And given the recent history with Haynesworth, I would steer clear of him.

    Haynesworth also was franchised by the Titans but never worked out a long-term deal. Part of it was the money but the other part was TN not really trusting Albert once he got the money.

    I don't see how a rookie QB will entice any veteran WR to come here and wait for him to learn the pro game. If they do come here, it would be more for the money. Which is what we we're trying to get away from, right?

    I hear you, but if you were a WR, would you rather catch passes from Rex Grossman or a rookie? While Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, et all may be a lot more attractive than a rookie (as they should be), we are a lot more attractive than we were 72 hours ago.
