Biggest Suprise Post Lockout: Team FAs

Biggest Suprise Post Lockout: Team FAs

It's likely that the FA period for our players will probably go as reported by MM an MB. However, on the off chance that there is a "shocker," what do you guys think it will be?

This one:

Nate Doesn't Restructure
Alex Smith Doesn't Sign
None of the Above.


Nate agrees to play safety.

What you want, or what's more likely?
It's possible that Manny tests the FA waters, and the money that he expected is not out there. Under that scenario, maybe he comes back. If Snyder really wants Franklin, he will shovel money at him, and Abrayu will get fat and happy.

Nate refusing to restructure could be another possibility; that dude seems pretty proud, and accepting a pay cut is a serious shot to the ego.

I can see any of those scenerios playing out.

I think that if Snyder is out of the Franklin sweep stakes there is a good chance we resign him. It's likely Houston will go after a big name CB, in which case they wont go after Franklin. Outside of that, I think we can complete with any other 3-4 team. I just dont know that I want him. Age and talent isn't the problem, it's the dedication. I worried about anyone that is strictley after the money.

Yeah, I think he is a case of "happy fat guy" waiting to happen. Last year, everyone said he was training hard on his own while he sat out practices w/ his Franchise Tag, but he sucked for the first few weeks. It seems that most of the dirtbag big money FA flops are big guys (DL or OL). Some guys don't make it because their skill set doesn't translate to a new scheme, but it seems like a lot of big guys get paid and quit trying.

As far as Snyder goes, I think they need an NT, and they know it. Mebane is a maybe, as he's been in a 4-3 his whole career, so Abrayu is the best option for Washington (I am of the mind that they need to dump Haynesworth for whatever they can get).
if Alex doesnt sign it would be the biggest by far but he will so there will be no shocker

Any guy who has to put in work as a backup for 6 years before they get a chance to start has a good work ethic.
