The Washington Redskins are continuing to talk to unrestricted free-agent defensive end Phillip Daniels about a new contract. At age 36, Daniels is coming off knee surgery, but he thinks he'll be ready to go for '09. The release of Jason Taylor certainly improved Daniels' value to the team. You'll recall that it was Daniels' injury that forced the club to trade for Taylor.
Was it smart for the Redskins to get in a dispute with Taylor over the offseason program? I think they could use some more firepower at defensive end -- and you can't simply assume it will come from the draft. Not with this team's recent track record in late April.
