Midweek Roundup: Prepping For Free Agency

The Redskins really are going to make a switch to the 3-4 it appears. I really thought they would just experiment with it, but it's looking like a complete switch is in the works.

More Peppers talk. This time from PFT.

As much as it is tempting to covet Peppers, Homer McFanboy has a great point. Signing him would be the same old Redskins. Besides, Karlos Dansby would be a cheaper option who also has a lot more left in the tank.

Darren Sproles could also be on the hit list? ("The 5-foot-6 speedster finished the season with 800 plus yards in receiving and rushing. He did have his worst year in yards per carry in 2009. He averaged less than four yards a rush. He is a great third down back. He's got great hands and can turn a short gain into a huge play.")

Rich Tandler has more on the running backs in the draft.

The Redskins didn't tender Jason Campbell with first and third round picks. They simply tendered him with a first. It would only have cost them another $100,000 to tack on the third-rounder to the tender.

@RichCampbell: For only 124,750 more, the #Redskins could have tendered Campbell at 1st & 3rd-round level. That speaks volumes.

Looks like Campbell is not in the team's future whatsoever. So I guess we could be looking at a QB in the first round this year.
