If we cut hall outright (Which I think we should), I think we should make a run at signing both Talib and Sean Smith. Especially since Wilson will be an FA after next season
Why would the Skins cut Hall? I really don't understand the thinking behind this. He's already publicly stated he will help the team financially by restructuring his deal (meaning he will spread his due money out over "x" amount of years). His play over the last half of the season was stellar, in my opinion.
Grabbing other team's castoffs or free agents and letting a known commodity of the Skins go, is asking for trouble. He still has a 2-3 prime years left and the SKins should be the team to employ him for those 2-3 years. He competes every game and this has been the case during the lean years as well.
You would think him arguably being the biggest reason the Skins beat Dallas (Morris as well) would grant him some respect.

I hope Skins don't cut Hall, its true if he support the organization on his deal means he wants to give some good years to the team and I believe he can do it, Hall staying focus is phenomenal on field. I repeat, I believe Skins can get 2 good years.

If they both did though, this wouldn't be a terrible plan. Hall is due a ton of money next year, so we could probably swing a 2-for-1 sale kind of thing.
That being said, I think the more likely scenario is that Hall restructures and we maybe chase after one guy, if any, depending on the safety situation.
I like Brad Jones as an option IF Fletcher retires. Let him, Robinson, Lorenzo (and a possible draft pick) compete for that starting spot. If Fletcher comes back, I think we more likely draft a MLB than pick one up in FA.
Through the heartache and pain. Here I remain, A Skinz fan for life....
Secondary next year - Hall, Wilson, Talib, Trufant, Swearinger, Meriweather, Jackson, Bernstine, Minnifield. Championship.
Get a RT and WR in FA.
Bring back Davis, Helu. Take another flyer on a late round RB.
Draft a TE and spend the rest of the picks on DL and LB.
With restructuring of guys like Moss, Hall, etc. and playing the draft and FA right, with all the guys coming back from injury and suspension, this team can be significantly improved next year.
Since I don't know nearly as much as my peers on this board I'll ask: what's the story on Merling? Is he a bust? Or has he just underperformed and we see something we can still coach up? Is he injury prone? I literally know zero about the guy...
In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness. ~RGIII~
I know his name has been brought up a few times in this thread, and he's listed as a potential target in the OP. But sounds like Jared Cook could get the franchise tag in Tennessee.
kiper says we might be targeting S Phillip Thomas Fresno St... he led the nation with 8ints
I don't think Merling is an upgrade over Jenkins, no. But I do think he is insurance in case Carriker isn't 100% after his ACL injury. He would also provide camp competition with Golston/Worthington. He didn't do much his last couple of seasons in Miami, but he does have ideal size for a 3-4 DE. FYI, he tore his achilles in 2010.
