Update [2007-3-2 16:48:10 by Skin Patrol]: Redskins Insider Jason La Canfora is working his ass off today. He has details (kind of) on the Mike Sellers contract:
Update [2007-3-2 13:19:8 by Skin Patrol]: Per Redskins Insider, Fletcher is in Washington, Dockery is in Atlanta, and Leonard David might be coming to Washington.
Update [2007-3-2 12:46:10 by Skin Patrol]: Curly R Free Agency Open Thread. He caught the Sellers and Thomas contracts AND the Vernon Fox re-signing.
Ben Anthony of Hog Heaven puts me us both to shame, as always.
Update [2007-3-2 10:8:55 by Skin Patrol]: War Cry! is all over FA too, so head over there for updates if you can't find them here. But you will be able to find them here, so seriously just stay here and hit refresh constantly.
Update [2007-3-2 7:51:44 by Skin Patrol]: Nothing yet. Redskins are interested in Fletcher but aren't big players for anyone else besides Fred Smoot. Check out ESPN and this morning's Post article for the little information available. Extreme Skins is great for updates, if you don't mind sifting through countless unsubstantiated or unsourced rumors as well.
Update [2007-3-1 17:59:44 by Skin Patrol]: (Hat Tip: Extreme Skins) Fred Smoot was released from the Vikings. Is he destined to return to Washington or will someone else pick up Zee Captain? If you really want to find out you'll probably just have to stay here and refresh constantly until tomorrow morning. It's the only way.
Free Agency is upon us soon, starting tonight at 12:01 (right?). I'll try and stay up as late as possible though will likely end up
drunk asleep well before then. My blogging colleague BleedGreen takes a shot at us but also puts a picture of the Hogettes on the front page of his Eagles Blog. We appreciate thee.
Moving on, we're ready to (not) dominate Free Agency in 2007 to the max, yo. Our uncharacteristic FA failed ventures already include Dre Bly heading elsewhere and our inability to sign Derrick Dockery. Why? Jason La Canfora thinks he's going to get a 12M signing bonus and we might let him walk. That's a lot of cheddar.
Doesn't look like we'll get Nate Clements, so if the Redskins are to make any noise it will be with London Fletcher, although that's hardly March Madness level FA signing. We're so vanilla this year that we might even have to cut Shawn Springs, although perhaps we could get something in a trade... I pause to scratch my chin. Reader(s)?
I'm through betting on the Redskins acting responsibly in Free Agency, but this might just be the year given our horrid record and lack of available Cap funds (even after we jettison various excess baggage). So without any money on the line, my official prediction is that Your Washington Redskins remain fairly quiet this year. That can change in a moment's notice -- which is what this thread is for. Feel free to post all pending, suggested, possible, totally and completely speculative predictions in the comments section. If I'm not around when the big news hits, feel free to post a diary or comment here on what's crappenin' and I might just post it on the front page.
PS: If I'm not around, make sure you head on over to Curly R or The Redskin Report or any of my many Redskins Blogging amigos listed on the left hand side of this webpage. If I'm not on it, one of them will be.
