Targets Preview 1 Offense:
Kyle Orton, QB, Chiefs: Orton is a veteran quarterback that could easily fill the seat until RG3 (or luck) is ready. The acquisition of Orton would be more effective then retaining Grossman due to the simple fact that Orton would give us a better chance at some wins until our coveted rookie is ready. Orton would provide a good character to mentor and due to the few options that would offer him starts, he should not be to difficult to convince, while also not being expensive.
Projected Contract: (2 years, 7 million)
Vincent Jackson, WR, Chargers: The arguably #1 widereciever option in free agency. He is 29, but has not yet shown signs of backing down. The Redskins desperately need a top receiver, and the reports trickling from sources suggest the Redskins to do almost anything to get him. In all honesty, I’ll be very surprised if he is not signed to the Redskins by Wednesday night.
Projected Contract: (4 years, 45 million)
Eddie Royal, WR, Broncos: A less impactful signing, but a type of low risk, high reward acquisition. He produced very effective statistics after being drafted by Shanahan. The simple connection is enough to make me believe in a reuniting of sorts.
Projected Contract: (1 year, 2 million, heavy incentives)
Samson Satele, G, Raiders: I do not expect the Redskins to be able to acquire Carl Nicks, Ben Grubbs, or Chris Meyers, so Satele is the next best option at only 27 years of age. He helped the Oakland line bulldoze over opposing defenses in 2011. The Redskins will sign a offensive lineman, not allowing RG3 to be behind the current makeup, the only question is who
Projected Contract: (5 years, 30 million)
