I'm going out on a limb here but a person of note I've met told me Donte Whitner will be a Redskin come the start of free agency. What I find odd about this is that Donte Whitner is a Strong Safety, which is not an area of need (you'd think) with Chris Horton and Reed Doughty. Donte's career stats aren't anything to brag about nor is the fact he was arrested and tasered 10 months ago.

Ken and I just had a quick chat about Donte and he added:
"I'm a Donte fan. He is a very good tackler and an exceptional athlete. He was a top draft pick in 2006 and I think he has fallen short of expectations. He is very smart and does a lot of thinking on the field. I am unsure if his disappointing INT production is his fault or the system's. One thing I am sure of: he can hit."
Does this mean he'd be moved to FS or Laron would stay at FS? It's anyone's guess. I am working on a second source now...stay tuned.
