    I know, but I'm saying, if Landry is "the next" Ed Reed, or even comes close to it, then he would be well worth it...

      I know, I just wanted to use that line...

      Anyway, he's the next Dawkins. Nelson is the next Reed

        Whatevs. Imagine a young Dawkins on a defense as good as the Bears. Beastly.

        • bsaza - just to point out, Washington is actually the SAM, with Marshall/McIntosh, as of now, scheduled to battle it out for the WILL spot. While I'm not defending the move (see previous posts in this thread), Lemar and Rocky have concerns, and adding someone like Briggs would remove the need for another pass rush specialist (last year, Marcus Washington rushed less on 3rd downs as he was needed to cover more ... so on passing downs, Marcus and Andre Carter could essentially be the ends).

          Just to reiterate, I think this is a poor move for the Skins if they pursue it, but it seems to be a very legitimate possibility. Gregg Williams has used a lot of systems before ... that said ... I don't think anyone sees him moving to a 3-4 anytime soon.

          • Reggie Nelson has the talent to be the next Dawkins, but I'm not certain he has the football IQ and personality to combine his skill set with being a coach on the field and a locker-room dynamo. Dawkins is an amazing physical specimen, but he also studies hard and works to get better and make others around him better. There is no guarantee that Nelson has the personality and drive to be the next Dawkins.

              My understanding was that Washington was best cut out to be a WILL, where he could attack, but I could very well be wrong. I think Briggs' fit in this scheme is not ideal, and I think it is a bad idea.

                Washington to me is the perfect SAM. He's big and strong, can stop the run, rush the passer, cover TEs, play man or zone, he's smart, he can put his hand on the dirt...he plays like a prototype SAM. You don't see SAMs like that anymore, its a rare breed. He doesn't have many years left though.

                • Isn't Gaines like 24? He's supposedly the player the Redskins were targeting. So is a 26 pro bowl linebacker really that big of a difference? We already know that Briggs is a beast, but have no idea how Gaines will turn out.

                  It's not that bad of a deal.

                    You can add Karlos Dansby to that list. He may be taking Washington's spot considering Dansby is only 3 years into his NFL career.

                      Then my boy, Michael Boley, will be in his prime.

                        Yeah, Dansby and Vrabel. Dansby is the only youngin I see who fits the bill though.

                        Thomas Davis and Derrick Johnson are solid in the 4-3. Dansby, Vrabel, and Washington I think could thrive in any system.

                            Michael Boley, 24 years old, started at SAM the past year and a half. He is exactly what you would like. He was the one player on the Falcons team that was consistently good, last year. He's 6'3", 236-lbs, started at SAM, played RE on passing downs, and he was Rich McKay's fall back plan at SS, had the team not signed Lawyer Milloy. That is versatility! He had 80 tackles, 3 interceptions, 2 sacks, 1 FF, 3 FR, last year. He isn't even in his prime yet. Like I said, he's my boy.

                              Did his brother ever catch on with an NFL team?

                                Hmmm....

                                I don't know, 6 is awfully high for a safety. I love safeties but 6?

                                Who knows, this could even be a bluff by the Redskins. By throwing this rumored trade out, maybe theyre trying to see if anyone else will hastily offer them something more for the 6th pick. They could be using Chicago.
                                Safeties went 7-8 last year, and I like Landry better than either of them. I also love safeties, and I think it'd be a good and very possible pick.
