Some Ways To Kill Time Until 12:01

Posted by Matt Terl on February 26, 2009 – 6:10 pm

If you’re trying to keep yourself occupied until the official start of free agency at 12:01 tonight, here are a few things to help you out.

(I don’t know what — if anything — is going to happen Redskins-wise at 12:01, but I can tell from my inbox that plenty of people are going to hang around hitting refresh on their computers until then. So this is just some other stuff to look at while the clock ticks.)

  • The guys from TheHogs.net talked to Prime Sports Network’s Pro Football Central Radio to help preview the NFC East in free agency and the draft. Colt Brennan is mentioned, if that sort of thing appeals to you. (Scroll down a bit to the archive of today’s show.)
  • The good folks at ExtremeSkins are doing their best to figure out what the availability of former Bill (and former Redskin) Derrick Dockery means to the team’s free agent plans. It doesn’t have any direct significance to free agency, but I will tell you that everyone here — literally EVERY person — I’ve spoken to about Dockery has had nothing but good things to say about the guy. It’s a little eerie, to be honest.

Two More Tendered

Posted by Matt Terl on February 26, 2009 – 12:35 pm

Like kicker Shaun Suisham last night, defensive tackles Kedric Golston and Anthony Montgomery received tender offers from the team, meaning that the Redskins can match any offers they receive. So if the non-stop barrage of Albert Haynesworth rumors prove false, the middle of last year’s line remains intact. And if the rumors are correct … well, that’s either some solid depth at tackle or another competitive position battle in training camp. Read more »

Thursday, February 26: ESPN Having Some Trouble Making Up Its Mind On Haynesworth

Posted by Matt Terl on February 26, 2009 – 9:10 am

Well, the rumors of the Redskins signing DT Albert Haynesworth are still going full blast. WUSA9′s Sara Walsh talked to him for an hour yesterday and reports that “he spent much of the conversation grilling me about life in Washington and what the Redskins are like.” (Walsh hosted a weekly radio show with Haynesworth during her time in Nashville.)

Since free agency officially kicks off just after midnight tonight, ESPN.com is getting ready for the flurry of action in those heady first few hours of wheeling and dealing, and their Insider section has Scouts Inc making list after list to analyze the guys who might change teams. So what do they have to say about this particular impact free agent?

Well, he headlines their list of Five Worth The Investment, so that’s good:

Albert Haynesworth, DT, Tennessee
A few years ago he would have fallen more into the buyer-beware category, but after coming back from an unfortunate incident of on-field violence he has turned his career around. The low motor and work-ethic issues of the past are gone. In Tennessee, Haynesworth was a dominant force at the point of attack and the Titans built their defense around him. Their goal was to bring outside pressure and funnel the ball back inside, where Haynesworth was taking on (and beating) double-team blocks and making plays around the line of scrimmage. He was the best unrestricted free agent coming into the process and probably will hit the open market.

Oh, that’s great news. Maybe all the negative reports about him are overblown. I mean, it’s not like he’s right on top of their list of Five Risky Free Agents or anything like that, right? Right? Well…. Read more »
