Haynesworth Franklin Smith
Balmer Sopoaga McDonald
I wouldn't give up anything more than a 3rd rounder, but I'd definitely make that move. That front line would be a wall...just completely impossible to run against, and Haynesworth and Justin Smith would require fairly consistent double-teams on the outside on passing plays, giving more opportunities for our OLBs to make plays.
Naw it really won't be. I watched him play every game for the Skins and I don't know if it was b/c he was in Dc or b/c he got paid but I've never seen such lazy play in my life from any player. when he plays and is angry he's a beast. But last year this guy would take off half the time he was in the game. Every game he's magically hurt so he could come out for a breather. the thing is he doesn't and wouldn't want to be a DE in the 3-4 and if he doesn't want to do something he isn't gonna suck it up and play hard regardless. He's gonna bulls**t.
According to him, he had to work out with the Redskins last year and said he wasn't in great shape...he's working out with this trainer this off-season because he wants to be in the kind of shape he was when he was in Tennessee. I'm personally not buying it, but that's what he said.
IMO, if anyone can reach him and get him to play inspired football, it would be Singletary. For the right price, I'd take a chance on him.
