The Skins have 49 million in cap room as of now.

They're expected to franchise Fred Davis.

Then there's the question of what they'll do in the draft.

They'll obviously have plenty of money for free agents.

So what do the Skins fans on here advocate?

I really have a hard time thinking that Allen and Shanahan will trade up to #2 for RGIII. Obviously nothing against him as a QB, as I feel that he would be great in burgundy and gold. However, I just don't think that Shanahan/Allen will be comfortable giving up that much to trade up.

To me, it's becoming more and more likely that the 'Skins trade down and pick up an extra pick or two. I'm thinking we'll be linked to Tannehill more and more in the upcoming weeks.

Needless to say, the draft will all depend on what we do in free-agency. And I'm really looking forward to it.

I heard a rumor yesterday that they are willing to trade their 1st, 2nd, 3rd, AND 1st(next year) round picks just to get RGIII. This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard but for the skins organization it makes complete sense.

Three first round picks and an additional pick for the Rams 1st rounder this year (#2 pick).

Glad the Browns didn't get him!

Updated to say that the other pick is a 2nd rounder...

What a haul for the Rams!

Wow, that's a steep price to pay. I'm a big fan of RGIII though and will enjoy watching him. He better be great to justify this cost!

It's either a great deal or it sets them back 5 years. Skins felt they had to get Manning or Griffin. Manning wasn't going there. It's a lot to pay but if you feel he is the real deal, then you make the deal.

The Rams have really set themselves up now. 9 picks in the first 2 rounds the next 3 years!

If Bradford develops, they could be really good quickly. Jeff Fisher picked an ideal situation.

What an insane deal. To move up from 6 to 2 you give up your '13 and '14 first rounders and your '13 second rounder. Who knows, could even be more. Crazy for a guy who is despite the hype is raw. Those '13 and '14 picks could both be Top 10 even if Griffin does end up being good in the long run. That said, thank you for keeping him out of Cleveland.

Gotta be feeling good if you're Jeff Fisher and company.

OK, so the Skins are going to draft RGIII and have franchised Davis. Fletcher and Landry are the primary free agents. They have 40+ million in cap room.

What should they do? Vincent Jackson, Garcon, Colton, other WR? Carl Nicks or other lineman? Bring back Fletcher or go young with one of Tulloch, Lofton, Henderson, etc? Landry or another safety? A corner such as Carr, Finnegan, Porter, etc?

An article basically saying how a lot of people questioned the Giants for trading what they did to get Eli. Obviously, that didn't set the organization back years and he wasn't even that good until last year.

There is no telling how this gamble will play out, but if I were a 'Skins fan I would be very happy. Without a legitimate QB, Washington will never go anywhere. If RG3 makes it, then the team has a chance to matter again. And that is all a fan can really ask for, isn't it?

Is it just me or is it a really tough schedule for a team that finished 6th worst in the league?

Just noticed that they are officially grooming L. Alexander to play MLB like I wanted last offseason. Obviously I like the move, and it protects more against injury and a Riley regression.

Well the two games they have that are based on their poor record are the Vikings and the Rams, so that's not too bad, although the Rams should be improved.

The problem is they got arguably the best AFC division in the North. Plus, the NFC South features a couple of teams that should improve (Panthers, Bucs).

Yeah, just a bad year, but I think the last place teams we play had bad years and will rebound. If Peterson comes back healthy, MIN is always dangerous. STL will surprise a lot of people I think. TB made a lot of improvements, and CAR should get better if Newton keeps improving. Could be a hard fought year.
