See what I did thar? His first name is Will (like mine!) and then I simultaneously used it as a verb. Very, very sharp rhetoric by yours truly. My mother says I'm handsome as well.
That's enough. Per Redskins Insider:
Demps, 28, is a former starting safety with the Ravens, Giants and Texans.
Although the offseason has been eerily quiet and with many Redskins fans suffering from OSDW (off-season drama withdrawal), while Redskins One unusually stationary, I don't mind this as a first move. It is very difficult to argue with the need at safety created by the murder of Sean Taylor. This isn't the team pursuing a replacement for Pierson Prioleau via Adam Archuleta, when the former turns out to be better than the latter anyways. This is not the blind pursuit of more expensive though greener grass, rather this team suffered an unexpected loss and the reality is that an unfillable void needs to at least be addressed.
As with everything, my initial instinct is "I'm fine with player X but for how much?" I parrot this same inquiry every time the team pursues players outside the roster and remain committed to letting that largely temper my attitude about Demps. Reader(s)... where are you at on this? Newcomer skinsrgods suggested we take a safety in the first round. The fluid nature of free agency should make apparent how difficult it is to predict where the 'Skins should go in the draft, as needs can change daily. Will Demps change our draft needs? (See what I did thar again?!?)
