Seems as though the Redskins will cut or trade Adam Archuleta soon - seeing as he might be available for a reasonable price (as the Skins will probably be soaked for a lot of guranteed money) does he fit into our defensive scheme and provide some veteran depth at Safety? http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/03/16/AR2007031601979.html I think he might be a good pickup for us. I'll confess some ignorance in terms of how often, beyond in the red zone, we're running a Cover 2 defense these days, but I think we're often in that mode. Overall I'd prefer a veteran over a rookie at S anyway, especially given the zone coverages we run. Beyond that if anyone can shed more light on what happened to Adam Archuleta in Washington I'd appreciate it - I remember he was benched which I thought in part was out of the Redskin's interest in seeing if they could replace his production (and high price tag) toward's the end of the season. (This article doesn't really answer any questions) http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/12/28/AR2006122801370.html Seems to me that Archuleta for whatever the reason didn't fit in with the Redskin defensive scheme. I'd have to think that, assuming we are looking for a Cover 2 guy, the coaches here would be sure to use him well - making him more productive and happier. Also, seems to me that the Redskins Defense had a helluva lot more problems than Archuletta. This article makes it sound like he was being used in a man2man defense - which is not how you want to use Archuletta and indeed, he got beat by Witten which seemed to mark the beginning of his benching. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/11/06/AR2006110601268.html I kindof like the Patriots history in taking a Safety who was misused by other teams and giving him a chance to serve as a solid foundation for our defense.
