    A 4th? We could totally match that offer!

    Big Bad John Henderson play NT but we could surely adapt him to RE position. This dude is a monster, he was selected to the pro bowl in 04 and 06.

    I think I'd rather go young rather than drop that type of cash on the DE position.

    Honestly, if you give me option of signing some big name free agent versus locking down Rivers, Merrimen, Gates, or even Jackson or Cromaterie, I'd go with locking down the players we already have.

    He's not a FA....

    Trading for him would give this team a 2000 Ravens type attitude.

    We could focus on Beef in the first round also. He's too good to be traded for a 4th.

    He has actually played at DE and in a 4-3 I remember seeing it when we played the Jags here in 2004. So I think he could pull it off pretty well and he'd just be fired up and nasty. Seriously give them a fourth and maybe a seventh or something conditional in 2010

    It's all about the structure of the contract, too. I'm not a numbers guy but we might be able to make it work. If we grabbed a guy like Henderson it would free us up a bit in the draft. And we have 2 comp 4ths so giving up our 4th isn't all that bad.

    He's a manster - and he just might get really hungry playing for a team that's somewhat poised to go all the way. Rotate Jamal & this guy to keep a fresh NT?

    Me likey. :yes:

    He could bring that nastyness to the defense that Foley brought.

    I hate to say it. But you are probably right. We need every cent to keep the good players we have. Its almost a necessity to just keep building through the draft. Which can be done how were set up now.

    I have no idea how washington can pay out so much money every year for free agents and still have a team.

    I wouldn't call the Redskins a team.

    They're just a group of men showing up for work to get paid. Some get paid more than others. End of story.

    For that kind of deal... there had better be a "Slap John Henderson Day" for the fans.

    Technically, he has 3 years, $15.05MM and I believe the majority of his guaranteed money has been paid out ... which means he has a set of three 1 year contracts at:

    $4.2 MM
    $5.0 MM
    $5.75 MM

    With no financial implication if released.

    Personally, I don't feel we have the cap flexibility to make this deal after next year. He'd be a 1 year contract.

    Henderson's a beast but AJ goes for the youth movement and he won't come cheap either. I think we can find a young Henderson weekend.

    Your mom was trying to teach you a lesson, not get you ready to kill.

    If you wanna try slapping John Henderson that hard, then I'll be sure to say something nice at your funeral :lol::lol:
