Exclamation Redskins targeting El?

Redskins | Team targeting Randle El
Fri, 10 Mar 2006 15:02:40 -0800
The Associated Press reports the Washington Redskins are targeting free agent WR Antwaan Randle El (Steelers) via free agency, according to a league official. He spoke on condition of anonymity because under league rules, the team is not allowed to contact the players until the market opens at 12:01 a.m. EST Saturday, March 11. Randle El is one of four free agents the Reskins are targeting. As noted earlier, the other three are free agent WR Brandon Lloyd (49ers), LB/DE Andre Carter (49ers) and S Adam Archuleta (Rams).

I think Lloyd was already tendered, and ARE would be an odd choice for a team that already has a shrimpy type WR in Santana Moss.

If he wants to stay here for the right price and continue to be on a winning team that knows how to use his skills in the best possible way, great. If he wants to go to a team that will over pay him, good bye. We'll see if he likes it when he has some hack throwing him the ball.

I hope we get a chance to resign El and atleast be given the option by him and his agent to offer up a deal of our own before he sees to many other dollar signs.

They want ARE for his kick return prowess, little more. Santana Moss is a better standalone receiver, but ARE has more tools in the bag. Apple and an orange, really, but if you think about it, it makes sense. They drafted #1 for Desmond Howard waaaay back in the day, and it paid off for them. They are comparable in their return & receiving capabilities.

I know I'd like to have a receiver on my team taller than 5' 9 1/2", but, then again, Daniel Snyder is insane, so who knows...
