Default Shanny after Sproles, Peppers

Welcome to Redskins west

Redskins will bid on Sproles too
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 1, 2010 12:18 PM ET
It might be faster to just write a post on the big-name free agents the Redskins aren't going after.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Redskins will be "among those" in the bidding for Sproles. Washington also reportedly wants Julius Peppers.

A player being tied to the Redskins will help an agent drive a player's price up, so some skepticism is warranted when their interest is floated. Then again, Washington really does go after most top names.

Washington needs some explosive talent on offense in any form, and Mike Shanahan watched Sproles up close in the AFC West for years.

If Sproles did arrive, we wonder how Clinton Portis would embrace the move. As long as Portis problem heeds the message of Lavar Arrington's epic rant, it shouldn't be a problem.

Dear God, Peppers and Haynesworth on the same payroll?

How would you like writing out those checks every month?

If it meant I got to switch bank accounts with Daniel Snyder, I'd find a way to suffer through it.

I don't think Sproles going to Washington will affect Portis role with the team at all...

IMO portis won't be on that team much longer. Shanny gets rid of guys that skip his offseason workouts.

I know Portis left our team a little disgruntled about it.
Did he ever publicly bash Shanahan, or just the town?
He called out the fans for still waiting for the next Elway and that we were all about Elway, or some sort of stuff like that...

I see Shanny picked up Anthony Alridge, so why does he need Sproles?

Portis will play for Washington for 3 games, go in IR and retire at the end of the season. I'm full of predictions today.

Well, because Sproles has proven himself in the NFL and Aldridge has proven he can go undrafted and be cut by multiple teams... just a guess.

Wasn't Alridge already on the Redskin's roster?

Shanny's affinity for big-name FA's + Snyder's ego/checkbook = Lots of activity this offseason. This should be fun to watch!

He was on the practice squad at the end of the season, but Shanahan did sign him to a future contract last month.

The way I'm seeing it, Shanny hired on Jan 5, Alrdige resigned on Jan 6.

Peppers would be a good pickup for him, as long as he doesn't show up in a limo with strippers and get in a fight at the local Ihop.

Sproles would do well to go to a team that runs screens, Shanny didn't run screens unless he was down big from what I remember.

How ironic would it be after a decade of Kavika Pittmans ... Shanahan goes out and lands a premiere defensive end.

I thought we had some very good DE's up until the last couple years. I still think not resigning Keith Traylor really hurt the line because he could occupy 2 guys and allow others to get the QB. We haven't had a DT like him since.

Maybe if Shanny didn't hit on Alfred Williams early he would have been less inclined to take chances on projects on the DL. Getting stuck drafting in the mid 20's every year seemed to make him even more desperate to hit on an injured project.

I just realized.... Shanahan + Snyder = No free agents are safe..

This could be really good or really bad for the Skins. I don't think they will ever win a super bowl, even with the Mastermind, but they will most likely be pretty successful albeit at the lowest efficiency in terms of player salary/wins in the league.

right we let alridge go in TC or whatever, and he signed on with the skins a little bit later.

Then recently shanny extended him out.

Sproles will not end up in Wash.

Couldn't be THAT bad, because they've already done it unsuccessfully over the past 10 years.

Shanahan will have a system in place which I think sets this apart. The defense is already stocked with options to compete right now.

NFC East is going to be in trouble.

BTW, I think Sproles could be a BEAST in Washington. CP is slowing down, doubt he makes it through the system. Imagine Quintin Griffin could actually play consistently, catch the ball, and hold onto the rock... that's what Sproles is. This could be a devastating movement for them.

I'm not a huge fan of Peppers but you can't argue the talent he has, especially when paired with A. Haynesworth, Andre Carter, and Orakpo.

I don't think Washington is that far away from being able to win consistently in the NFC. I probably like Campbell more than most. They'll solve their LT issue in the 1st round, most likely picking up Okung from OSU.

Imagine if McCoy or Suh fell to them on the DL? Wow. They could always wrap back around and aim for a guy like Charlie Brown in round 2 from USC. He's also be a perfect fit at LT for them.

Scary.

Peppers will be a FA bust if shanny really likes him. Whatever DL he likes in FA turns into a big turd.
