Skins land Haley

The Redskins landed another player, and lost another draft pick, when Miami declined to match the offer sheet given to defensive tackle Jermaine Haley.

The 30-year old Haley, who played three seasons in Miami after spending two with Toronto in the CFL, becomes a backup for the Redskins. He's considered more of a run-stopper, someone whom the Dolphins no longer could afford, which is why they let the Redskins sign him to a four-year $4 million offer.

But his signing does not end Washington's quest for another defensive tackle. The Redskins will either draft one this weekend or sign ex-Cowboy Michael Myers.

Our preference: draft a tackle. The Redskins have two guys considered starters in Brandon Noble and Dan Wilkinson. If they sign Myers, they'd have two guys who are lifelong backups. It would make more sense to draft a young player capable of one day becoming a solid starter.
