I just wrote an article on Examiner.com urging the Redskins to sign former Seahawks and Bengals wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who was cut by Seattle Saturday. The Redskins are thin at starting wide receiver. After Santana Moss, they’ve got 38-year old Joey Galloway starting. T.J. would help out Donovan McNabb, who could use another receiver. (Has any good quarterback ever had worse luck with receivers than McNabb?)
The Skins have an average running back corps, solid but three-fifths new offensive line, and Chris Cooley and Moss are the only sure things. And Moss has been known to miss a few games here and there because of injury.
As recently as 2007, “Houshmazilli” had 112 catches and 12 TDs. Dan Snyder and Mike Shanahan should forget about critics who would say signing Houshmandzadeh would be another free agent who is past his prime, and sign T.J. because it is best for the team. The Skins have a tough schedule, but a shot at the playoffs because of a solid defense. Now it’s time to shore up the offense while they still can. They missed out on the opportunity to get Brian Westbrook. Don’t blow this one.
