    Periloux had 4 pass attempts all season (spread out over 3 games).

    Two points:

    1) If the Skins were really interested in Russell, they'd never tip their hand. So Redskin Park denials are meaningless.
    2) Charles Robinson is not some PFT hack. If he says there's smoke, I believe him.

    Talk about a mess, this team takes the cake. Between Little Danny, Old Joe Gibbs, inept QBs Jason Campbell & Mark Brunell, where is the bright side for these folks? Campbell was a terrible pick, and Gibbs is in a total fog in today's world of football. Has it been 15 full years of futility now? Snyder makes JJ look like a genius. Poor saps. LOL:lmao2:

    I just find it funny that the Skins got their main guy to spread the report that this rumor is false, it was at least a week before Jerry responded to a question posed to him, if they are entertaining trading Julius

    but even then, it wasn't an unequivocal no

    This would do it for me if they went hog wild and moved up to get him. Talk about giving up on your future before he even gets a chance...ala Jason Campbell. Of course this is just a rumor but it sure is an enchanting one. I'll be interested in how the hog fans downplay this. :p:

    I've been reading that the Raidah's are enamored with Calvin Johnson. If they pull the trigger on that Moss for Rogers and picks, it might be an indication they are going that route.

    Given, Detroit, Cleveland and Tampa could all use a QB, but you never know what will happen on draft day...

    Wait a minute, I thought Skin nation thought Jason Campbell was the second coming of Doug Williams. They are already giving up on him?

    If I were the Raiders I would take Calvin johnson 1st over either QB, and I'd grab my QB at the top of the 2nd round. Similar to what the Chargers did in trading down to grab LT and grabbing Brees in the 2nd instead of drafting Vick.

    Before last year's disaster they were very high on Walters. They might still be with a new system and maybe a better offensive line. With that said I would also take Calvin Johnson and have a competition between Walters and the guy they draft.

    This is a crap rumor spread around by Russell's agent.

    http://blog.washingtonpost.com/redskinsinsider/

    The Jamarcus Rumors Are Bogus/Todd Wade To Sign Today

    [FONT=Times New Roman,times,serif] First of all, before this becomes an internet craze and takes on a life of its own, I have people in authority at Redskins Park telling me with much vigor that the team is in no way trying to trade up and take the LSU QB first overall. There is nothing to this at all. Get your fingers off the mouse and do not send another email floating this junk. No need to waste any more time on it.
    The Skins love Campbell and want to give him every chance to succeed. They are actually trying to trade down from everything I've heard and the idea that The Owner is infatuated with Russell and willing to blow up this draft and trade a potential franchise QB they gave up a lot of get just two years ago is naive. The Snyder commands ultimate authority over there, but this idea, as reported on Yahoo.com, is lunacy.
    Everybody takes their shots at The Snyder for one reason or another, but at least have some facts in line before you do. Everything I have heard tells me that Russell's agents are behind this, spoon-feeding it to reporters at the Pro Day, to create a market for their player. They want Oakland to have to compete with someone to get every last dollar for their client, and creating the perception that Dan The Man was going to offering huge money and trying to get this kid only helps their position.
    I actually spoke to one of his reprensatives Wed. night - I called earlier about a completely unrelated matter and never gave consideration for a second that the Skins were after Russell - and got an earfull of how much the Skins love him and Snyder is out to get him.
    Again, I am told this is completely false, and I wouldn't be shocked that should this rumor get too out of control Coach Joe might even come out and make a statement on it if need be. For now, though, they hope it dies and isn't something that JC would heard about or have to worry about, because it's not true.
    Okay, now on to Todd Wade. His agent, Ken Kremer, emailed to say Todd has agreed to terms on a two-year deal, and will sign it today. I am guessing the numbers Schefter reported - $3.5 guaranteed and $6 million total - are probably right now, but have yet to hear them myself, so I can only go with what I know for now.
    Look for the Skins to announce the Yoder deal by tomorrow, and probably announce Wade by Friday as well.

    If the Redskins in fact are denying interest in Russell than im glad they told La Confora about it. I dont know what kind of message that is sending to Campbell if in fact it is true we are brining Russell in for a visit.

    This, IMO, is just a bogus rumor! Although, if that did happen, it sure would ruin a young man in the process! (Campbell)...

    This is nothing...as much as I dispise the RedStinks, I just cannot imagine The Midget doing such a thing....however, he does have a track record of playing fantasy football.

    What's the deal with the Redskins? They sent nearly their entire staff to watch Calvin Johnson's pro day.

    I guess this draft thing is kinda new to them.
