    Byrd was in the conversation 3 to 4 years ago, and there was a knock against him.
    Can't quite remember what it was

    3-4 years ago he was a pro bowler.

    he got hurt in New Orleans, and then came back and underwhelmed his contract.

    But given that he is still unsigned and is 30 years old, I would think he is a better gamble given his past performances when healthy than Dashon Goldson was.

    Especially since we paid Goldson a lot more for that one season here in Washington.

    Byrd can still run.

    I think he just wanted a contract way beyond what he was worth, even as a Pro Bowler.
    But yea, he could still be an veteran asset at this point, as I imagine he's probably more reasonable in his contract demands these days.

    Seems there's always some surprise June cuts. Would Haloti Ngata (if cut) be worth a 1year deal? He'd make our d-line a pretty solid rotation after they were a borderline joke last season.

    We always seem to make that surprise signing, a la Josh Norton, but it never seems to be along the defensive line

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

    He has a habit of laying down, so it's pretty easy to look right over him.

    I haven't logged on in awhile so, I thought that I would see if there was anything new. No, I didn't see anything new... the first thing I notice is the GIF images at the top of the page with the Sports Illustrated cover saying, ''BRING ON THE RAIDERS" Man, how depressing that was as a kid to witness... I LOVE OUR REDSKINS! I'm ready for some football!
