Though winning in the regular and postseason is a tradition that no longer resides with the Redskins, winning in the offseason (at least with headlines) is something Redskin fans have become all too accustom with.
Owner Daniel Snyder with "Yes Man" Vinny Cerrato had no problem opening the check book and signing whatever free agents had the most popular jersey from the season before.
This way of running a team has been very lucrative, monetarily, for Snyder but has generated only two play-off appearances in the decade that he's own the team.
Last season (with the exception of trading for Donovan McNabb) was a breath of fresh air for the Skins.
New head coach Mike Shanahan and new general manager Bruce Allen were pretty quiet in free agency.
In fact the biggest noise the Redskins made were the number of players the Redskins released in order to get under the cap.
Hopefully the trend of not trying to make the biggest splash in the free agency pools continues this season.
For that to happen though these are some of the players the Skins should avoid this year.
