    Another story is that some interesting names could be set free by Redskins coach Mike Shanahan at the final cutdown. There’s a good chance that running back Willie Parker doesn’t make the cut, and gifted but enigmatic 2008 second-round receiver Malcolm Kelly is a possibility to hit the market as well.

    If we keep Johnson over Parker I'm going to be pissed, but I'd rather they both be cut.

    It would be more surprising if Parker didn't get cut.

    With what happened today, Kelly is either going on IR or being cut. Sucks, wished the best for him, he had the talent, oh well.

    I hope they cut them both and go with the young guys.
  6. Parker is done. Johnson maybe has 2 years left. I think they should try and sneak Torain on the
    practice squad.

    Someone would sign Torain off their practice reason they can't keep him as a third back...
  8. Keiland Williams is better than Torain

    Why do you think Williams is better? Just curious is all, I feel as if Torain is the better of the two, but I'm willing to keep either, but would like to keep both, especially over Parker and Johnson.
  10. He is younger and I think he has more potential in the long-term. Both are good players. :icon_smile:

    younger? by a season? b/c of Williams being a rookie, I think they'd have a better shot at sneaking him onto the practice squad before Torain. Regardless, the Redskins signing Parker to start with was a question mark...
  12. I also said I think Williams has more carries left in him and will be a better player overall.

    I doubt they would sneak either player on the practice squad.

    Agreed Parker signing was odd.

    They could try to carry four if they really want to keep Williams and Torain and possibly go with 7 O-linemen instead of 8. It seems like most teams nowadays are going with 7 instead of 8. We know how Shanahan loves his RB's and O-linemen...
  14. haha good point. Maybe they will cut down on defense instead?

    Makes sense. I think they both are smart when it comes to rushing, but I like Torain for the simple fact that he looks faster. I mean Williams is bigger which would be more logical for the short yard situations.
  16. Torain seems like a lock to make the team. He is starting in place of Portis.

    Looks like they opted to keep Williams and let Parker and Torain go.

    Portis, Johnson and Williams. Not a bad long as they stay healthy.

    Why was this bumped? I could have told you long before he signed with the Skins that Torain was better than all of their current RB's. That's not to say I think he's an all world beater but he's good and he's familiar with the head coach.
