    we all know that the redskins are in cap trouble and they might release lavar arrington...i know he plays outside backer but does anyone else think he could be our Mike backer...he has the size and talent...any thoughts?

    I Like Arrington alot but, I don't think that would work. How about Bart Scott from the Ravens?

    http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/303402

    A Ravens starter who could be on his way out is linebacker Bart Scott, whose stock rose when he replaced Ray Lewis for 10 games. There is a solid chance that Scott will receive more money from other teams in free agency than what the Ravens are able to match. Scott not only is young (25), but he plays a position of need in the NFL.

    I don't want replacements. I want starters. I am also tired of expirimenting with players. That is all we did at the LB and Ol position. It hasn't worked and if it did it had very minimal if any production at all. It is time to start getting guys that started at their position for a long time.

    Unfortunately, this is the reality of what FA is. Most of the guys who are long time starters(and good) don't hit the FA market or cost out of the rear. The good teams either develop mid/low round drafts over three or four years so that they are ready to start( see Pittsburgh) or do a great job of taking boring low to moderate cost FA who turn out to be quality football players (see Patriots).

    The Colts tendered June to a 1.55mill. one yr. deal. He was a 6th rd. pick. So we could go after this guy if we ponied up a sixth rd. pick and made him a good offer. Considering the Colts are over the cap I don't think they will be willing to match many offers.

    We would have to pay up a 1st round selection I beleive...he is the 2nd level...Only if they offered the lowest amount do you compensate the draft round they were in.

    I've heard that LaVar would rather retire than play for the Redskins...if only Marcus Coleman or P-Buc believed that last year...

    He is? My bad. Can somebody explain the strengths/role of MLB vs OLB in a 4-3 defense?

    lavar arrington seems like a little too much of vigilante player to hold up the middle in a 4-3. One of his knocks is that he gets out of position looking for the play. We could use some of his tenacity though. We should definatly snag as many playmakers as possible, but keep them where they've made the plays that they are known for.

    Possibly, but he may not be ready for the start of the season after his injury...that's if he can even recover to be the same type of player that he was.

    If he can't, do you feel confident in DaShon Polk to step in and be our starting MLB? I don't...we need to either sign a better MLB in FA or draft one for depth and to groom for the starting position.:twocents:

    You are Correct here , KJ would cost a first rounder as the colts offered him the Mid level tender . Here is a post explaining how it works by Kaiser Toro.


    I think its a good idea to sticky that post for future reference.
