Time to go back to another Redskins item that didn’t make the cut on Donovan McNabb Day. According to CSN Washington, Redskins GM Bruce Allen told SIRIUS Radio on Tuesday that the team has contacted the agent for former Cowboys offensive tackle Flozell Adams.
For the Redskins, kicking the tires on the five-time Pro Bowler makes sense. Following the retirement of Chris Samuels, there’s no in-house replacement on the roster. Holding the No. 4 pick in the draft, it’s also a possibility the Redskins won’t get a shot at the highest-rated left tackle, Russell Okung, without trading up. In fact, three of our draft analysts believe Okung will go No. 2 to the Lions (here’s the latest mock from Charles Davis).
There could be a market for Adams. Following his release from the Cowboys late last week, three teams contacted his agent to express interest for next season, reported Clarence Hill of the Fort-Worth Star Telegram.
NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi suggested to me that the Redskins and Bears are the two teams that have the biggest need. If Adams doesn’t land somewhere in the next two weeks, the market for his services will be more clear coming out of what is considered to be a draft very heavy in tackle talent.
