Two days into free agency and the second-biggest story developed today with New England’s trade of quarterback Matt Cassel to the Kansas City Chiefs. Cassel and Mike Vrabel to KC for a second-round pick? Sounds like a great deal for the Chiefs and they could swap Cassel with another team.
The Redskins, meanwhile, have finally put the Brinks truck in the garage after a day of spending. The additions Albert Haynesworth and Derrick Dockery and the re-signing of DeAngelo Hall had me thinking about the 2009 starting lineup.
By my count, 20 of the 24 spots are solidified. Here’s my take. Email your suggestions to rohalloran@washingtontimes.
QB: Jason Campbell
RB: Clinton Portis
FB: Mike Sellers
LT: Chris Samuels
LG: Derrick Dockery
C: Casey Rabach
RG: Randy Thomas
RT: Jon Jansen OR Stephon Heyer. Jim Zorn will probably open this competition up at the start of training camp.
TE: Chris Cooley
WR:Antwaan Randle El
SLB:?????. The Redskins should address this spot in the first round but also have a veteran ready to go as a stop gap in case the youngster isn’t ready to go.
P:????. Don’t you think it’s time for the Redskins to sign somebody?
K: Dave Rayner or Shaun Suisham. Another competition that will make the preseason a little interesting.
