“Under some previous Redskins regimes, a roster starting to get a little top heavy in terms of salaries would be cause for alarm. Drafts under Vinny Cerrato and Mike Shanahan were mediocre at best and if one of them was still in charge the chances of them being able to stock the team with quality, low-priced talent on a consistent basis would be very low.
“It may be asking too much for McCloughan to produce a draft class that contributes as much as his 2015 group did year after year. But if he can land a few quality players every year the team won’t have to bring in free agents like Pierre Garçon, DeSean Jackson, Chris Culliver, and Jason Hatcher. Combined, they are taking up $37.3 million in cap space this year, or 24 percent of the total available to spend. If their roles were being filled by draft picks working on their first contracts you can see that the Redskins would have plenty of room to maneuver.”

”’I think now for the first time I can say that, after we got rid of a head coach who I thought a lot of who could help us win games, with Jay being there, we’re starting to get the players that we needed,’ [Santana] Moss said. ‘You know, I was there for a while and we didn’t have a lot of good players.’”
