Does this now mean we will take Okung at #4 ?????
Grossman to back up JC.

Has to be. Take Okung at #4 and draft a QB in the mid-rounds.

I doubt the signing of a back up scrub like Grossman has much impact on the draft objectives.

If the Skins were considering the possibility of going QB in Round 1 before this signing, I don't see how this deal changes that possibility.

That's what I initially thought. But I like to look on the optimistic side of these things.

If Bradford is not on the board, I don't think we should bother until the 2nd round. Clausen is too much of a risk at #4 in my opinion.

I just dont think we'd dive JC a 1st round tender and sign Grossman whilst having Colt on the roster as a project, and also look to Draft a QB at #4. I believe the only way we will draft a QB in Round 1 now is if Bradford is there at #4 - not going to happen. I think Shanahan has the QB's set. With Portis and Johnson in the Backfield, I think we will go Okung at #4 and then draft a RB in the mid rounds.

But you could probably just cut either of Grossman and Brennan. At this stage, Grossman is merely insurance.

Cant see Okung being there at 4 given that Detroit has taken a
DT in FA.

This is also by no means a given. (By the way, not to be pedantic, but they traded for a DT). It still doesn't mean they are set at the position and if Suh is the player he is hyped to be, the Lions would still find it hard to pass.

I think Brennan will be cut eventually.

I agree, there are still questions over his IR status last year.

Grossman is a clever signing for me, a year spent under Kyle and LaFleur at the Texans, at the very least he will be there to be a voice familiar with the change in system, someone to aid Campbell understanding the change. I think it does now point to OL or trade out of #4 for more picks and more OL draft wise, and pick up a project in the second round
