Jim Haslett is a horrible coach.
Ricky Jean-Francois needs to join this team... We could have Barry Cofield doing his sack dance, while RJF is doing this...

In regards to contracts for free agents... I will try and add some thoughts to this...
If Jammal Brown's contract is 'voided' tomorrow, he will officially be an unrestricted free agent. HOWEVER, this is separate from going on the books as a 'release.'
This means that he can not sign a contract with another team until the new league year of March 12.
If he were 'released' he could be picked up immediately from another team.

Bart Scott - LB - Jets The Jets can clear $27.7 million in cap space by releasing ILB Bart Scott, OLB Calvin Pace and OT Jason Smith.
Beat writer Manish Mehta considers it a matter of "when," not if, they make the moves. This is surely part of the salary-cap masterplan deposed GM Mike Tannenbaum has been referring to in interviews. Mehta expects 2012 third-rounder Demario Davis to take Scott's place in the starting lineup. S Eric Smith is also a candidate for release.
I'd take a flier on Jason Smith in a heartbeat... Still young, but has not yet lived up to his potential. 2nd overall pick in 2009 draft.

Didn't see this posted yet. Rotoworld's Team Needs and Roster Rankings:
http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/nf...-rankings?pg=211. Washington Redskins
OL: Left tackle Trent Williams, center Will Montgomery, and right guard Chris Chester are all signed long term and make up the core of Washington's zone-blocking offensive line. The unit's two 2012 weak links -- left guard Kory Lichtensteiger and right tackle Tyler Polumbus -- are both headed for free agency. Last year's third-rounder Josh LeRibeus might be able to handle left guard moving forward, but Washington does not have a viable in-house right tackle replacement.
CB: DeAngelo Hall's openness to a contract restructure helps matters, but there is next to no depth behind him and fellow starter Josh Wilson. Nickel back Cedric Griffin's contract is up, and seventh-rounder Richard Crawford was the only other Washington corner to play significant 2012 snaps. The Redskins shouldn't feel truly comfortable at any of their four defensive back positions.
LB: Brian Orakpo's return helps this unit on paper, but it's fair to wonder if he's become unreliable physically. Orakpo has twice torn his left pectoral muscle and didn't recover fully the first time. Ryan Kerrigan remains a stud bookend, but 2012 Orakpo replacement Rob Jackson's contract is up and there is no remaining depth. Washington needs to continue to prioritize pass rushers.
TE: The Redskins can make this position better if free agent Fred Davis is re-signed and recovers smoothly from Achilles' surgery, but it's a concern at the moment. Logan Paulsen is a high-effort player short on skill. Converted wide receiver Niles Paul is a situational tight end only. Chris Cooley is a free agent, and he may begin his broadcasting career as soon as this offseason.

Some decent news... This guy still is an adequate cover corner in the league and starter. At 29 years old, former first rounder in 04... I'd see what he's willing to take.
Chris Gamble - DB - Panthers The Charlotte Observer expects the Panthers to release LCB Chris Gamble.
Mine as well get him off the books now, rather restructure another player to free up the $2.2 million difference, instead of paying Brown two years after he's gone.

im not saying i want him on our team, but i just think he wasn't used properly
**** it, I'm going deep.
But, with that said, Mike did sound like he really trusted the kid and felt that he was undeserving of the suspension when it was enacted. I remember Mike stating how much of a "good kid" Tanard is like ten times in the press conference following the suspension, lol. So maybe that part of your issue isn't really one with the FO.

Orakpo is entering the final year of his rookie contract, but is coming off his second pectoral tear in as many seasons. Orakpo's production — 29.5 sacks in 49 career games — warrants an extension, but his health could inspire the Redskins to roll the dice and put off long-term talks for another year. Orakpo's sub-$4 million cap number could be another reason the cap-strapped Redskins delay talks. Orakpo has reason to wait, as well, as any extension agreed to this offseason would surely be of the "team friendly" variety. The Redskins could always use the franchise tag on Orakpo if they fail to lock him up and he returns to form in 2013.
Ed Reed - DB - Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome is optimistic the Ravens will re-sign free agent Ed Reed.
"I think he realizes there may be some other options out there, but I think if you watched him, if you watched his body language over the course of the last eight to 10 days that he loves being here in Baltimore," Newsome said Thursday. "And I think we can use that to help make that relationship last a little bit longer." Newsome hinted the franchise tag will not be an option for Reed, meaning any deal would likely be a 2-3 year pact. There's a real chance Reed leaves, but it's far from a certainty.
Shaun Rogers - DL - Giants Giants re-signed DT Shaun Rogers.
Details of the contract are unavailable, but it's likely a one-year deal with no guaranteed money. Rogers, who's a month shy of his 34th birthday, missed all of 2012 with a blood clot in his leg. The three-time Pro Bowler has made just five starts since the end of the 2009 season, and is nothing more than a depth signing for a team that released Chris Canty on Wednesday.
Jets | Could use a tag on Dustin Keller
The New York Jets could consider using their franchise tag or transition tag on impending free-agent TE Dustin Keller this offseason.
This guy is a waste of a roster space because you can only use him on passes that are going to him. When was the last time he WAS happy in an offense? Maybe the reason he believes he's misused is because he's washed up and delusional, believing he's still #1 material.
If you can't put forth effort in the SB, then when can you? It was a pathetic performance, and the reason he didn't get passes thrown to him is because he's not dependable. A guy that's half of what he used to be, still a prima donna, and doesn't put for effort in the biggest game of his life? Sounds like a grade A deuche bag, not worth the headache. If the guys who barely lost the SB think they're better off without him, that says a lot, IMO.
I feel our offense is too fast paced for R. Moss anyway... He takes far too long to develop his routes and he wouldn't last in this offense. I also noted his laziness in the Super Bowl. There's a lot better out there anyway.
R. Moss will be a Patriot for his final year, book it.
How is Hightower doing with his injury?
I want us to keep adding DL depth.
I would us to work on bringing Glenn Dorsey and Tyson Jackson who are both expected to be releases by the Chiefs. Although both have been a bust/disappointment but there are reasons why they were selected so high in the draft.
If we can get them back on track like we did with Carriker then our DL would be set with very good depth.
