5.  Cornerback - The Redskins re-signed starter DeAngelo Hall and they also signed free agent cornerback Tracy Porter.  And although Porter could be considered as an upgrade over 2013 starter Josh Wilson, depth at corner is still very thin.  And there are still some free agents out there the Redskins might consider.     2014 NFL Free Agency

    How can we sign a number 3 WR from AZ and the Ravens get Smith for the same amount every year? Oh yeah, because we are mismanaged and nobody wants to come here. Oh look, Hakeem Nicks just signed for only 3.5 million lol! Gonna be a long year or 2

    • Jenny Richter

      Or because Steve Smith is clearly in decline coming off a down year and Nicks has also been on decline. Andre Roberts has caught over 100 balls over the last 2 seasons and is a solid receiver and imo is getting paid fairly reasonable considering his credentials

      • David Dorman

        Steve Smith appears to be on the decline because the Panthers were still asking him to be a #1 WR. Baltimore and the Skins would only need him to be a #2, he will have a very productive year or 2 you can count on it. My only point is I think he would be a very valuable#2 for us and a more proven one. I think Roberts has potential but Smith would be a great fit with his work attitude and grit, he would be a great compliment to Garcon….Oh well

          The Redskins couldn’t risk losing out on Roberts to wait for Steve Smith without knowing if Smith would sign with them. Then they’d have risked not getting any of the top free agent receivers.

        I like Andre Roberts and I think he’ll do well for the Redskins, but Steve Smith will definitely help the Ravens. Especially now that he’s motivated to prove the Panthers wrong.

    • http://fanonfiresportswire.com/ Maurice Barksdale

      If the Redskins had passed on Andre Robertson and waited for Steve Smith to become available, there’s no guarantee Smith would have signed with the Skins. Besides, the Redskins are going to draft a wide receiver in the draft also. So I think they’ll be OK.

      • David Dorman

        I totally agree with the assessment of Roberts vs our WRs. That being said resigning Moss baffles me with so many other talented FAs out there. Why not hold off on signing Moss, what other team would jump on him right now? He drops and fumbles balls almost as much as he catches them now. Hasn’t Hankerson had enough time to get his act together too? Maybe we could have made a run at some other options and if we found one we could not sign Moss and cut Hank to make room for someone else.

        • http://fanonfiresportswire.com/ Maurice Barksdale

          I think Santana Moss was re-signed mostly as a precaution for Hankerson’s torn his ACL. When it’s all said and done, those two and Robinson may end up fighting for the same spot on the roster.

  • David Dorman

    Nobody said anything about passing on Roberts for Smith. I’m just pointing out the fact that well run teams (winning teams) seem to sign high quality players for less than what we pay players. The simple fact is we have to pay more until we get our act together and those types of players are more interested in going elsewhere until we do.

    • http://fanonfiresportswire.com/ Maurice Barksdale

      I think the Redskins had to ask themselves was Roberts better than anyone else they had besides Pierre Garcon? And I think the answer is yes. They couldn’t go into another season hoping that one of either Leonard Hankerson, Santana Moss, or Aldrick Robinson could step up and become a number two.

      But with Roberts aboard, they get a receiver who’s been consistent, and they will also draft a receiver that will have a chance to emerge as a number two as well. They needed more options, and now they have them.
