Redskins Free Agency Rumors

A full day has passed since the start of the NFL's legal tampering period.  This three day window allows teams and agents time to work out the framework of deals, start rumors, and influence the price and futures of free agent players.  Most of the action yesterday involved  team's re-signing or cutting some of their own players, but there has been a lot of (mis)information floating around involving the Redskins as well.  Who are the Skins talking to and who is off of their list?


*Note*  Nothing can officially happen until 4PM on March 11th.  Rumors and lies are a given, and some sources(Bob) are less reliable than others.


Rumored Interest:


Aqib Talib, CB, New England Patriots:

We all know the story with Talib.  He has ties to current Redskins secondary coach Raheem Morris who was his head coach in Tampa Bay.  The Redskins pursued him hard in free agency last year, but the cap penalty did not allow them to match the 1 year, almost $5 million contract he took to return to the Patriots.  Now he is a free agency again and the rumors of Skins interest are here again.


Mike Mitchell, S, Carolina Panthers


Linval Joseph, DL, New York Giants


Arthur Jones, DL, Baltimore Ravens


Randy Starks, DL, Miami Dolphins


Anthony Collins, OT, Cincinnati Bengals


Jon Beason LB New York Giants

Hakeem Nicks, WR, New York Giants

Joe Mays, LB, Cincinnati Bengals

Keim: Thanks to their ability to block the airplane tracker, we won’t know for sure. But the names I’ve heard the most, and for a while: safety Mike Mitchell, defensive lineman Linval Joseph, linebacker Joe Mays (mostly as a special teams guy), receiver Hakeem Nicks and, perhaps, linebacker Jon Beason. They can be pretty good at concealing things, so I don’t know how accurate all the names are on this list. But I feel pretty good about most of them. Now, how many will they sign? Don’t know.


Brandon Spikes, LB, New England Patriots

Daryl Smith, LB, Baltimore Ravens


Rumored: Not Interested


Alterraun Verner, CB, Tennessee Titans
