    Wow! Moss and Lloyd are going an awesome tandom. 1st round talent for a 3rd and 4th round pick -- not bad at all.

    I can count the number of talented Niners on one hand and have fingers left over. This is a terrible deal for the Niners, because good players seem to be hard to find for them. I'd be willing to bet both of their draft picks they get out of this end up being busts.

    Although I heard he doesn't want to be there, so there's probably nothing they could have done.

    Good deal for the Redskins though. They needed a #2 receiver behind Moss really, really badly, and now they have one.

    I honestly think that the 49ers owner is more interested in keeping things cheap than winning games.

    Antwaan Randle El is also a rumored target of the Redskins, that would be a lot of fast WRs on their team, and Moss, Randle El, and Lloyd along with Clinton Portis would make a very potent offense.

    Houston, again.
    The thing I can't get a grasp of, is how do the Redskins keep buying talent and not blow their cap?

    I'm not a big Lloyd fan. He isn't too consistent, but makes highlights because he will make an unbelievable catch.
