Looking back at this past off-season by the Redskins and I got to thinking. Is this the worst off-season display ever by an NFL team?
- Adam Archuleta – made the highest paid safety in the NFL – has been demoted behind a guy who’s began the year on IR with another team and another guy who was signed to play special teams.
- Andre Carter – signed for 30 million over 6 years plus bonuses – has managed to get a whopping 3 sacks.
- Antwaan Randle-El – signed for 30 million over 6 years plus bonuses – has 28 catches and a fullback-like 10.1 yard per catch average. He’s been decent on punt returns, getting 9.3 yards per return (although James Thrash averaged 7.7 yards last year).
- Todd Collins – signed for 2.5 million over 2 years – looks pretty sharp on the sidelines.
- Christian Fauria – signed 2 million dollar deal – earned a million dollars per catch.
- Kenny Wright – signed 1 year, $700,000 deal – a complete disaster when pressed into starting duty.
- Rocky McIntosh – 2nd round draft pick – can’t beat out Warrick Holdman for a starting role. Traded 3 picks for the chance to pick McIntosh including next year’s 2nd round choice.
The only saving grace for the Redskins work last summer is the play of 6th round draft choice Kedric Golston. No other draft choice has made much of a contribution, although 5th round pick Anthony Montgomery did make one start.
So can you think of anything that even comes close to a worst off-season performance than that?
