If we can pick up Williams, get Gordon reinstated and pick up a decent tight end on cut down day, our offense becomes deadly.
Next up, developing a pass rush. If we can get a pass rusher we win the Super Bowl, Health permitting,
your first 2 points would be more than enough imo. Defense I feel we are set although I wouldn't be opposed to a 1 year Ngakoue rental.
TE I mean we had scrubs there before and won. Don't think it matters much.
OT and Gordon is really crucial though. Getting Gordon back at any point would be big, getting an OT is a must. Our depth and our starter isn't cutting it right now. If you are the Patriots you simply can't rely on a guy who is fresh off a achilles tear to be the blindside protector of your 42 year old QB. Much less on Skipper.
If one of those 2 is your starters vs the Steelers (unless Wynn shows he is a stud at any point during the preseason) you are asking for trouble.
Nothing really new here: Trent Williams insists that he's not coming back to Washington.
Trent Williams will not play for Redskins, 'period,' per sources
For those who think he's just using this as a ploy to get more money from the Redskins, Charlie Casserly has stated that he thinks this is just a ploy to get more money from the Redskins (also in that link above).
What's our recent history of trading with Washington? It seems BB has always been pretty chilly toward them as a trade partner, maybe from his days as a Giant. Not that it can't change (see recent deals with Indy).
"Is anyone more wrong than Charley Casserley?"
The Stork a couple of years ago.
The Indy/NEP trade agreement has been dissolved
They acquired Albert Haynesworth in 2011 when Mike Shanahan there, a guy BB respects.
So it's not about a ploy for more money. Charlie Casserole is the George Costanza of the NFL.
The Costanza "Opposite" Strategy to Win Friends and Influence People.
Between Matt Light and Nate Solder, other than 1 season or so each missed due to injury, we may have been VERY spoiled with the consistency at LT since TB12 been the starter.
Don’t get me wrong both Light and Silder were excellent LT, but Williams is a much better tackle than either of them, Williams is at least on par with Bruce Armstrong.
If this guy doesn't ask for more money and doesn't require a high pick as compensation I don't see any reason why BB wouldn't/hasn't already inquired about him, unless him and Scar know something we don't.
He's 3 or 4-time all-pro so I wouldn't be one to get you wrong.
Was Solder really excellent?
Solder, like Light, was consistent & dependable...though again like Light, neither is NFL HOF-worthy...and probably not the precise definition of "excellent" either...more like "very good."
They're good, but we have been spoiled by Dante Scar.
Sign the beast!!
Sure. That is all we need is another 20 million in cap space
I would trade for him. Need some cap space but with a talented secondary, it's time to say goodbye to mcccourty anyway. Could also see a lawyer milloy situation.
