Report: Santonio Holmes “primary objective” on long Redskins wish list

2011 AFC Championship: New York Jets v Pittsburgh Steelers Getty Images

Staying relatively disciplined in last year’s free agent period was cute for the Redskins, but that was before the Donovan McNabb trade imploded during a 6-10 season.

Now Mike Shanahan is ready to spend.

According to a report from Jason La Canfora of NFL.com, the Redskins have a long wish list with Santonio Holmes as the “primary objective” and Ravens guard Marshall Yanda near the top of the list.  Both players figure to be highly coveted by multiple teams, including the ones they played for last year. The Jets and Ravens can’t love the idea of the Redskins entering the bidding.

(The Jets may have flashbacks to 2003, when the Redskins raided their roster including the Laveranues Coles signing.)

The spending won’t stop there. Team sources tell La Canfora the team would be surprised if they don’t land both Cullen Jenkins and Kris Jenkins for their defensive line.  Giants defensive tackle Barry Cofield could also be added, while Chris Chester or Jared Gaither could be fallback options to Yanda.  (Washington’s line coach has Ravens connections.)

The Redskins also want to retain Santana Moss, Rex Grossman, cornerback Phillip Buchanon, and tackle Jammal Brown.   (This whole thing puts our checklist to shame.)

La Canfora says the team ultimately expects to release Donovan McNabb after they try (and fail) to deal him. Albert Haynesworth should be dumped for a small price in a trade, if anyone is willing to pay.

Basically, the Redskins will probably be the most active and written about team during the upcoming free agent period.

In such an unfamiliar year, it’s nice there are still traditions we can still rely on.

    so basically the redskins will do what they do every year, make bad decisions on free agents and trade away draft picks for has beens.

  2. jahbird says: Jul 13, 2011 8:50 AM

    Jason LaCanfora hasn’t been right on a single Redskins scoop in years. Just saying…

  3. daburgher says: Jul 13, 2011 8:50 AM

    I hope he does go to the skins or any other team. Sanchez has a stacked receiving corps and still isn’t impressive. People talk about Sanchez like he is actually good at the position.. truth is he is borderline decent and that is with a ton of talent to throw to.

  4. vtsquirm says: Jul 13, 2011 8:51 AM

    yep, have to agree with Rosenthal here. We are the offseason champs every year. Thats basically all we can look forward to. Appears that nothing has changed at Redskin park.

  5. silvernblackpa says: Jul 13, 2011 8:51 AM

    Ah, Danny Boy Snyder. He never learns, does he? I look forward to this Redskins team joining the Super Bowl winning one that had Bruce Smith and Deion Sanders.

  7. Exiled1 says: Jul 13, 2011 8:54 AM

    I’d get rid of Haynesworth for a 7th round pick.

  8. krow101 says: Jul 13, 2011 8:54 AM

    This is crazy talk. All free agents are required to sign with either the Jets or the Eagles, right?

  9. nxsteven says: Jul 13, 2011 8:54 AM

    Now if there only wasn’t a salary cap, all of these guys wanted to play for a losing franchise, without a quarterback, in one of the toughest divisions in football over the past decade (minus the Redskins) they might be on to something.

    Good luck with that.

    Cliffs:
    – salary cap
    – losing franchise
    – no quarterback
    – tough division (excluding Redskins)
    – good luck.

  10. blackqbwhiterb says: Jul 13, 2011 8:55 AM

    Kris Jenkins?! Typical Redskins signing, pay him a zillion, give up a ton of picks, guy hasn’t played in 3 years or so because he can’t stay healthy….

    Cullen Jenkins ok, Santonio I wouldn’t bother with, great player, sometimes a pain, get younger and don’t overpay for guys like that. Yanda I never heard of, but the line needs youth and power.

    At the end of the day, they need a starting QB, that’s the big question. If it’s Vince Young orTavaris Jackson, you can count me OUT. Youtube will post the video of me burning my Redskins gear, shirts, etc. Because that would mean they just don’t see the obvious….Then again, they already didn’t when they signed McNabb

  11. laxer37 says: Jul 13, 2011 8:56 AM

    The Washington Redskins…where careers go to die.

    Even the Bengals think you’re decision making is an embarrassment.

  12. blackqbwhiterb says: Jul 13, 2011 8:57 AM

    Carlos Rogers, that’s who ought to be re-signed, don’t worry about Phil-I’m 55 years old-and still playing- Buchanon. Barry Cofield, because he had one sack in the Super Bowl, otherwise you never heard of him? Come on, man………..

  13. rayvens says: Jul 13, 2011 8:58 AM

    Basically, the Redskins will probably be the most active and written about team during the upcoming free agent period.

    —————————-
    Basically, The Redskins will probably be 3 – 13 at best.
    Danny Boy still havent learned!…u build thru the Draft!

  14. ravensfreak00 says: Jul 13, 2011 9:01 AM

    Well, they can cross Yanda off that list because he is one of the Raven’s top priorities.

  15. weneedlinemen42 says: Jul 13, 2011 9:01 AM

    Jason La Canfora is notorious for being completely outside the loop of the Redskin’s front office.

    As a beat reporter for the Washington Post he was an absolute joke, relying on information from fringe players.

    Bear in mind that one of his last acts as WaPo’s “Redskins Insider” was to declare that there was no way the Redskins would have the cap room to sign Albert Haynesworth and he wasn’t a target.

    He got that wrong. As he has with just about every other prediction to do with the Redskins since he joined the NFL Network.

    He has predicted Haynesworth’s imment trades on numerous occasions. He completely failed to predict the McNabb signing, which would have actually required some inside information. He was also completely wrong during the draft about the Redskins desire to sign Blaine Gabbert and indeed any sort of QB.

    However, as ‘Skins fan I hope he is right about the offensive linemen and wrong about Holmes

    I have to say it sounds wrong. The whole emphasis during the draft was on signing high character guys, former team captains and the like. Holmes, as good a player as he is, doesn’t really fit with that new direction.

    Also we drafted 3-receivers. I can see them trying to bring back Santana Moss to provide veteran guidance, but there is a distinct possibility that WR wont be free agent priority this year.

  16. Bubby Brister says: Jul 13, 2011 9:02 AM

    And then they will go 7-9.

  17. jayballin25 says: Jul 13, 2011 9:02 AM

  18. eaglesfootballfan says: Jul 13, 2011 9:03 AM

    Why would these players want to come to a team that has not made the playoffs in 4 years and a team that will always be in the cellar of the NFC East not to mention all of the termoil that happens in Washington every year (see McNabb, Haynesworth).

  19. Kaz says: Jul 13, 2011 9:04 AM

    That’ll be a lot to accomplish in the 2 days of FA b4 the preseason and season starts….

  20. drop703 says: Jul 13, 2011 9:08 AM

    The Redskins have a LOT of holes to fill. They should spend money on free agents…as long as their the RIGHT type of players that fit their scheme and fit their budget. The new regime hasn’t overspent for players thus far, so I hope that the trend continues. As an unbiased Skins fan, even those players mentioned above won’t make them a playoff team without a true leader at QB. It’s a long road, but I believe that they’re on the right track.

  21. damnskins703 says: Jul 13, 2011 9:08 AM

    Let’s goo Skins, make good choices for once and not dumb please Sept 11 g men are going down

  22. jahbird says: Jul 13, 2011 9:10 AM

    @eaglesfootballfan has never heard of money or ego evidently.

  23. goawayeverybody says: Jul 13, 2011 9:11 AM

    If the Jets end up letting Santonio Holmes slip through their fingers, they are officially extremely stupid.

  24. godofwine330 says: Jul 13, 2011 9:12 AM

    Free agents just aren’t successful once they land in DC. If I am Santonio Holms, I am not signing there. If I am a big name free agent I am not signing there. All money, ain’t good money. You might get a big deal, but the flux around there will have a new coach there in 3 years and then you are in limbo when that coach who has no attachment to you wants to cut you and bring in “his guys”. If you don’t believe me quickly think of a big name free agent that had equal success in DC that he had with his original team since Snyder bought the team.

  25. metalschaf67 says: Jul 13, 2011 9:15 AM

    All the big names are smoke screen bs to scare other teams into larger offers than they originallyplanned leaving the skins open to go after who they really want

  26. wicky888 says: Jul 13, 2011 9:16 AM

    Whatever. They could sign Jesus Christ and the 12 apostles and they’d still have a losing record this year and no draft picks next year

  27. geemoney713 says: Jul 13, 2011 9:19 AM

    Why is everyone saying that it’s typical Redskins and that they’re giving up picks? None of this mentions giving up picks. It only mentions spending money, which apparently they have a ton of (below the salary cap). What else is the money below the salary cap supposed to be used for other than signing players?

  28. therealsmiley says: Jul 13, 2011 9:21 AM

    Eaglesfootballfan…cause there are 3 Lombardi Trophies sitting in Fedex Field? Hail!

  29. rumple4skins says: Jul 13, 2011 9:21 AM

    You may want to mention that the Skins need to spend like 45 mil to reach the payroll floor. If they are forced to spend that kind of money I’d like to hope they have a plan to pick up some of the guys they like in FA…

  30. winskins says: Jul 13, 2011 9:26 AM

    Right…and Shanahan has never lied to the media before. Nope. No smoke screens here. Move along please.

  31. sdw2001 says: Jul 13, 2011 9:30 AM

    More awesomeness from the Redskins.

  32. silvernblackpa says: Jul 13, 2011 9:32 AM

    cause there are 3 Lombardi Trophies sitting in Fedex Field

    All won by Joe Gibbs 20+ years ago.

    There are 3 Lombardi Trophies sitting outside Al Davis’s office in Oakland, but that doesn’t mean anyone wants to go there for any reason but money. And that’s why people will join the ‘Skins and Raiders. The owners of our teams open their wallets, plain and simple.

    Of course, they’d win more if they opened their wallets for the right people.

    And good luck expecting PFT nation to try and decipher that.

    Typical anti-Skins Rosenthal article. The Skins showed you last year in FA and the 2011 Draft of what to expect. Naysayers will be disappointed when the Skins continue to make smart FA decisions, draft wisely, and not overpay.

  36. parasonic says: Jul 13, 2011 9:51 AM

    trent williams is the only player with a large cap number this season. so as long as they don’t trade for players using future picks I don’t care how much money they spend.

    wish list:
    steve smith NY
    cullen jenkins
    a. franklin
    carlos rogers
    anyone to replace casey rabach

  37. gregjennings85 says: Jul 13, 2011 10:11 AM

    Yeah, I think the opposite would be true of these potential moves.

    Cullen Jenkins, Santonio Holmes and Barry Cofield were all integral parts of Super Bowl-winning teams.

    The landing of even one of them could galvanize a Redskins locker room in serious need of some leadership.

    Not to mention…keep Jenkins out of Chicago.

  38. nahcouldntbethat says: Jul 13, 2011 10:20 AM

    Santonio Holmes is going to get a really big deal somewhere. Having him wind up in Washington is a logical outcome. That’s the franchise that routinely overpays for players and then regrets it later. Holmes is going to get his money and then it’s a coinflip if the team giving it to him really regrets it later.

  39. barronhastoholdorakpo says: Jul 13, 2011 10:24 AM

    Weneenlinemen, you are right on. I can tell you are an informed skins fan. I love how people that have no idea about the new skins front office, can continue to skinsbash. I know it is deserved, and snyder/vinny team was a joke. But beware NFC east and beyond. Have a good time this year bringing up the past, but a fresh new plan is in place, and it will shock the uniformed fan by week 9. This team will be for real once we sign up Luck, or Barkley in April 2012. Youth, speed, and a franchise QB. That’s what the informed skins fan is now aware of.

    According to Yanda’s agent the Ravens and Yanda had made some progress in negotiations before the lockout started. With the 4 day window before free agency actually begins, hopefully they can get it done. I’d really prefer not to get in a bidding war with Snyder. Yanda would mess around and be the highest paid G in NFL history.

    How and the heck are the Redskins making plans to acquire all these free agents, arent they over the cap?

  42. dirtydrynn27 says: Jul 13, 2011 10:38 AM

    Godofwine330 says “quickly think of any free agents the Redskins signed that had success during Daniel Snyder`s reign”……Santana Moss,London Fletcher,Deangelo Hall and Maybe Brad Johnson……Sure the skins have spent foolishly and you are pretty much right,Most of the big name free agents have pretty much sucked.However I believe that the new regime will approach free agency differently this year.They had an excellent draft and they are getting bashed for free agent moves that they havent even made yet!.At least wait and see,then you can bash!!!!!

  43. nyjalleffingday says: Jul 13, 2011 10:45 AM

    The Redskins need to screw off and find their own players. DC has been a graveyard for unwanted ex-Jets for years.

  44. redskinszt says: Jul 13, 2011 10:54 AM

    Everybodys hating on Dan Snyder for not building through the draft. The Redskins had the most draft picks this season, thats pretty solid. We still need veteran good players to come in and fill holes. the draft only comes once a year. after the draft you still need to fill holes in free agency. 12 draft picks this season. you can’t hate on snyder for that right now when he had the most draft picks in the draft.

    Does this even make sense are you serious .Isn’t the main objective to build a team with talent around your QB …How did Mcnabb fair last year with that no talent team last Year In WASHINGTON? Now your telling me get Holmes over there because I guess REX GROSSMAN IS THE secong coming of Peyton Manning …Get a clue Sanchez has been in the league for 2 years …So how can anyone say he is overated .All he has done so far is beat the Chargers ,Pats and Colts all on the road …And led a drive to beat the Colts last year with 45 seconds left to set up a winning field goal ..HATERS HATE ON !

    wowwwww, I don’t think theses are the same old redskins, I think the front office is better now with bruce allen and snyder isn’t making any decisions anymore, the front office is gonna use snyders money to their advantage , they’re not gonna go after washed up players , just wait they’re gonna prove everyone wrong, spending on the right pieces is what they’re gonna do and I say they make the playoffs in 2011. The defense is gonna be the key tho.

  52. jbcommonsense says: Jul 13, 2011 11:33 AM

    @weneedlinemen42, I mostly agree. Santonio Holmes is the great promise… that never delivers. But they do need more than rookies and Santana Moss [who should be re-signed]. Another cheaper, more reliable veteran WR like Roy Williams or Plax, or if they are going to spend, Sidney Rice, would do wonders.

    I also agree that we need young, talented OLs and DTs too. Football is won or lost there.

    How and the heck are the Redskins making plans to acquire all these free agents, arent they over the cap?

    ========================
    For the first time in a long time, the Skins are in a strong position cap wise. They are carrying a lot of dead money but are still a long way under the predicted cap and will probably have to spend to get over the higher minimum that has been negotiated(if that is indeed part of the new CBA).

    This is a totally different front office. They used the uncapped year well. They moved all of Haynesworth’s and Hall’s guaranteed bonuses into last year. Cutting Portis also cleared a lot of space.

    Haynesworth’s contract is now very manageable (at least before the unguaranteed back-end kicks in). Even carrying McNabb’s high number, they’ll have room to manoeuvre in free agency.

    They’ve got enough room to sign their rookies, add free agents and carry Haynesworth and McNabb. It is not a foregone conclusion that those guys will be cut. If Shanahan decides to force it, he could keep those guys on the roster right up to the start of the regular season and beyond.

    Als0 bear in mind that prior to signing Haynesworth they weren’t considered as potential suitors until very late in the day because no one thought they had any cap room. If the Redskins have done anything well, it is spending a lot on free agents without cap room. Now they’ve got a lot of cap room, and could be major players in free agency. Though that doesn’t necessarily mean they are going make the same mistakes as Cerrato made. It is a very different organisation now that Bruce Allen is running it.

    It will be interesting to see what happens.

    @weneedlinemen42, I mostly agree. Santonio Holmes is the great promise… that never delivers. But they do need more than rookies and Santana Moss

    ===========

    I agree, to be truely competitive they would need more. However, I wonder whether this year might be treated as Year 1 of a more long term plan.

    As I see it we have too many needs to fill, and no real shot at securing a really good QB. I doubt that we have shot at play-off run this year or the next. and WR should really be the last piece of the puzzle that a team should fill.

    During the draft I was shocked that we picked 3-receivers. It didn’t make sense, unless say they intend to write the position off as a high expenditure unit for several years. The Skins have now got (or will have) more receivers on rookie contracts than can fit on the regular season roster. If the front office is intent on re-building they can use the next two seasons to see whether any those receivers makes good, then look for free-agents when the rest of the team is good enough to make use of them.

    I am hoping that this year we spend our free agent cash on building our offensive and defensive lines. I think we need 2 starting guards and a right tackle, they’re not going to come cheap. Even though we have a lot of cap room, I think the new CBA will inflate salaries and that picking up three of the best offensive linemen may be as much as we can afford (beyond roster fillers on vet minimums).

    As for Holmes, he is a tremendous threat as a receiver. Unfortunately, he is a bit of threat as team-mate as well and runs the risk of losing a season to a substance abuse ban. I’d have very mixed feelings if we spent a lot of money to get him.

    Keeping Moss, if he accepts, that he no longer merits big money, would be the safe move. Though personally, I’d like to go with Armstrong, Hankerson, Austin, Paul and Robinson. I’d accept that quarterback and receiver are going to be an issue this season and use it to evaluate who stays on for Year 2 or the rebuilding process.

    As much as I enjoyed Banks as a returner, I can see him missing the cut. He did not add much as receiver. I also worry that the stabbing incident may have caused enough damage to compromise his performance. The change to the kick-off rules may also compromise his value as a return specialist.

    I’d also love to think Malcom Kelly will suddenly prove himself a capable red-zone threat, but I don’t see it happening. Moreover, I suspect he’ll get injured before he gets cut. As will Ryan Torrain, who I suspect will go from starter to stashed on injured reserve, whilst Shanahan takes a look at Williams, Helu and Royster.

    I just have this suspicion that Shanahan is using going to use this season as a skill-poisition audition at the start of a rebuilding phase. Firstly, because the team genuinely needs to be rebuilt from the ground upwards. Secondly, because it will probably force Snyder to give him a few more years.

    If Shanahan declares an all out rebuilding programme, he can survive a few years of bad results. If he brings in a load of high-priced skill position players and has another season as bad as this one, Snyder will fire him and go after Jeff Fisher.

  58. skinsfaninnebraska says: Jul 13, 2011 3:52 PM

    To those who say you build a team through the draft: yes, that’s true, and the Skins had a pretty good draft this year.

    But you only get so many draft picks, and in a win-now-or-perish league like the NFL you need to find some FA’s who can help you win sooner than later.

    Allen and Shanahan did better with this year’s draft than the franchise has done since the Gibbs 1.0 era. Let’s just wait and see if they can’t do a little better also at being smart with free agency before slamming the door on them.

    Probably true. By my count we need a QB, 2 WRs, 2 OLs, and a NT [and maybe a CB if Hall or Rogers leaves]. This shortened FA season could get crazy. Denver is turning to Tebow, and Orton looks like a good QB prospect for the ‘Skins.

    Why would these players want to come to a team that has not made the playoffs in 4 years and a team that will always be in the cellar of the NFC East not to mention all of the termoil that happens in Washington every year (see McNabb, Haynesworth).”

    I’m hoping that with Bruce Allen as GM, the Redskins won’t overpay for players. Go out and get guys, but don’t over pay. Allen has done a great job all of last season reducing contracts and cutting unnecessary players, which is something the Skins didn’t do in previous seasons. La Canfora has been wrong before.
