The Redskins are one step away from being a real super bowl contender. And what is that step? Signing a big powerful receiver who will flourish in Jim Zorn's west coast offense. And who will fit that better then Brandon Marshall, who has demanded a trade from the broncos, and with how Denver handled the Jay Cutler situation, it shows they are willing to give into trade demands. Marshall was third in the league in receptions and seventh in total yards. With the addition of Marshall this will  free up Santana Moss to be a number Two guy who can stretch the field, and this will help show his big play potential just like Eddie Royal did last year in Denver. I know trading for Marshall will mean giving up at least next year's 1st rounder but this team is built to win now. The offensive and defensive lines aren't getting any younger and if we don't get help in the next Two seasons are chance of being a legitimate threat is over. I have not given up on Devin Thomas or Malcolm Kelly, but i feel that not getting a All Pro caliber player who fits a need is ridiculous. With 2 stud receivers, Clinton in the back field, and the number One defense in the league,There is know reason that we wont be signing Hail to Redskins in the streets of Miami next year.
