The Sweed factor is why I said in the other post that Nate Washington signing should be a high prioirty.

Hines (probably has a couple years left in the tank if he wants them), Santonio, and Sweed as the Steelers only 3 receivers going into the draft???

God forbid Holmes or Ward get hurt.

Need to make sure Washington is our 3rd receiver for a few more years. If Sweed breaks out in his second year, all the more comfortable the thought of Hines eventually retiring becomes.

How about we find someone other than our little-used fullback and our goal-line back to return kickoffs?

I will give Davis credit, he is great on STs.  But he still ain't no Dan Kreider.

On the other hand, as you point out, being a LT on the SB champions could easily entice someone to overpay.

Let me present exhibit A:  Larry Brown.  there are ALOT of stupid teams out there.  the list is ever so shrinking, but there are still desperate teams out there

In all the pre-XLIII stuff, didn't I read that the year we drafted Troy, we had been pursuing Dexter Jackson?  And that he coincidentally hopped a jet to Zona to sign for more money?

Yeah, that worked out.

I remember that. We thought we had Jackson signed, and he got the bigger offer at the last second. If we had gotten him, we supposedly would have drafted Larry Johnson. That might not have turned out all bad either.

Tend to worry that this might be how it will go down. Some team will see Nate's big play ability (and fail to notice his large list of drops), and overpay.

Wonder if maybe we can pick up some servicable veteran for a little less. Anyone think that ARE will be available?  It is possible that the Skins will cut him?

I wonder how much that 19 mil shrinks when we extend Harrison, Hampton, Miller, and Clark.

Hopefully it won't shrink by much due to spreading out the bonuses.  IF the Rooneys have the cash flow to pay out large bonuses.

Miller would be the one to consume the most cap space in 09 with an extension IMO, due to the fact he's still in his rooke contract.

I would like to see the Hines extension/restructure (11M hit currently) and Foote(3M reduction?) cut to spare a little more cap space.

Glad to see the Redskins have finally had all that FA spending idiocy catch up to them.
