I never said he was more valuable. In fact, I said quite the opposite.....

A guy like Washington may not make an impact in 2006, but what about next season when El and Lee Mays are free-agents. It might be nice to have a guy that dressed for games, played with the 53 man roster, and actually got some snaps and experience.

You can't honestly beleive that there is noone else on our team that can play special teams, and run down the feild and tackle someone. Teams find new guys to do that every year..... much like the Eagles did. It is not necessary to have 6 specialists on your 53 man roster.
