Tatupu and Hayden to visit the Redskins

Just when we thought we may have had our fair share of excitement this off-season, we now learn that the Redskins will host visits to Lofa Tatupu and Kelvin Hayden later this week. I think that those could be two solid moves for the Redskins.

Tatupu was a 3 time former pro bowler at the MLB position. Although he is nowhere close to the form he displayed his first 3 years in the league, he is still a solid player who has bounced back last year after an injury cut short his 2009 season. London Fletcher is not getting any younger at 36 years old, and while I believe we should try to see what Perry Riley can do, it is clear that we will need a replacement for Fletcher at some point, and at only 29 years old, Tatupu would make sense.

On the other hand, Kelvin Hayden is a 27 years old CB recently cut by the Colts. He is mostly famous for his interception off Rex Grossman in Super Bowl XLI, but he has been a solid player for the Colts during his time in Indianapolis. Philip Buchanon could be a very good option too, but Hayden is three years younger, although I acknowledge he has some injury issues (Hayden has missed 18 games the past three years).

Overall, I think we would be good with Riley as a starter and the re-signing of Buchanon, but I wouldn't be mad if the Redskins did indeed sign Hayden and/or Tatupu instead. Any thoughts?
