I'm working on a pretty lengthy Redskins News and Notes post but with a few minutes before heading to work, I wanted to make some brief comments on the Jammal Brown trade.
1. It's a steal for the Skins to get a two time pro bowl LT for the mere cost of either a 3rd or 4h round pick and maybe a late round pick in 2012. Plus, the skins will get either a 5th or 6th rounder from the Saints (all based on McNabb's performance and the 2010 record).
2. By getting Brown, the Skins add more versatility and depth to the roster. Brown and Trent Williams can play both tackle positions. That allows Artis Hicks to move inside and compete with Mike Williams for RG.
3. If the Redskins plan on Brown being a long-term solution, they need to extend him during the next few weeks if possible. Although the Skins need to do this with Carlos Rogers and Donovan McNabb just to name a few as well.
4. There will be a great deal of competition to make this roster now. Stephon Heyer, Will Montgomery, Chad Rinehart, Mike Williams and Edwin Williams- all either starters or role players (and sometimes liabilities) during the Zorn tenure may not be on this team come September.
More to come.......
