And we're looking at Lance Briggs again.
I have to say, the Chad Johnson move is awesome. I think he would do absolute wonders for our offense and give Jason a much higher and faster learning curve, not to mention one of the best WR corps in the NFL. Imagine -- Chad, Santana, Randle El, Cooley, and hopefully Caldwell? That is a ridiculous set of passing options (not to mention Portis and Betts, and everyone's favorite Redskin Todd "Use The Force" Yoder). I think that will give Jason Campbell a lot of freedom, and Jim Zorn is all about spreading the offense around. I think that would work out beautifully.
As far as Briggs, I don't know how I feel. Rocky Mac is gonna be sidelined for at least part of the year, but I think we're ok with HB Blades. Briggs is ultimately gonna cost a lot of money, and not for a lot of value seeing as we will continue to run a 4-3... We have our OLB of the future in Rocky, who is great. Marcus is aging, and has been hurt a lot, but I don't know if forking over huge money to a free agent is worth it.
So what do you guys think? Burn what looks like a first and third for Chad Johnson? Fork over a huge amt. for Lance Briggs?
I think if we do get Chad, that's our move for the offseason... but who knows. I'm a little nervous, because these kinds of moves have never worked out in Washington. But, Chad Johnson is a WR in his prime and despite all his distractions hasn't ever quit on his team like Moss or TO, and we're going to at least be a winning team or close to a winning team next year unless Zorn is really terrible.
I also think he would be a great compliment to Santana Moss, because of their differing styles. They are both super fast, which would give Cooley a lot of room underneath. Moss could be used on those huge deep balls more because he wouldn't be double covered as often. I think it would be a great move... What do you guys think?
