  1. The Redskins are having an awful offseason – the defense is even worse in depth than last year and the offense is worse with no upgrades and just lateral moves.

  2. Wait…they traded with his college to get him? I didn’t know they could do that.

  3. I’m not thrilled with this. a 2nd and 3rd round pick for a guy that we already have in Trent Taylor and Marquees.. We could’ve had Josh Jackson, a 1st round rated player at a position of need. Is Baalke back at making picks?

  4. Man, as a Husky fan, this guy will be a star. He is amazing. A real game changer. Good for the 49rs.

  5. Jerry Rice was great at getting open and avoiding tacklers after catching the ball, before he was hurt by the Tampa Bay Bucs in a regular season game using an illegal tackle and face mask.

    Resigning Zach Brown, acquiring Alex Smith & P Rich & adding a defensive stud to a young, now healthy defensive line … yeah, we’re awful.

    Keep trolling, clown.

  7. Will take yer word on this one kamthechancellor, he must have been good with the huskies
