The Redskins need a left tackle. And Flozell Adams is available. So it would make sense for the Redskins to be interested.
That said, it’s unusual that the Redskins would candidly admit pursuing Adams.
G.M. Bruce Allen did just that today on Sirius NFL Radio, according to Ryan O’Halloran of CSNWashington.com.
A reasonable (and cynical) mind may regard this admission by Allen as the latest piece of the puzzle aimed at persuading other teams to think that the ‘Skins could take a quarterback with the fourth overall pick, with the ultimate goal of trading down and stockpiling mid-to-low-round picks that coach Mike Shanahan previously has turned into players like Elvis Dumervil, Brandon Marshall, and Terrell Davis.
Adams, a long-time member of the Cowboys, was cut on Friday.
