Redskins sign Cedric Griffin, Cowboys sign Nate Livings, Evan Mathis’ upcoming decision, and Kyle Orton’s contract numbers

Per Josina Anderson off ESPN, the Redskins have signed Cedric Griffin to a one year deal:

A few notes on Griffin:

  • Good size at 6’0, 203.
  • 29 years old. Turns 30 in November.
  • Lots of forced fumbles.  3 in 2011, 3 in 2009, 4 in 2008, 2 in 2007, 2 on 2006.  That’s outstanding for a CB.
  • 10 penalties in 2011.  That led the Vikings’ defense.  Next closest player had 5.
  • Griffin tore his ACL in the NFC Championship Bounty Game against the Saints, and was able to recover quickly.  He returned for Week 3 the following season.  Two games later he tore his ACL in the other knee.  Then he played all 16 games in 2011.

I kinda like this signing for the Skins.  I wonder if they’re going to consider moving him to safety.  I’d think he’s a guy that could transition well.

More after the jump…

The Cowboys, per Adam Schefter have signed Nate Livings:

The Cowboys are trying to plug all their holes via free agency, presumably so they can take “the best available player” in the upcoming draft.  To date, they’ve signed7 outside players:  Livings, Brandon Carr, Dan Connor, Kyle Orton, Mackenzy Bernadeau, Brodney Pool, and Lawrence Vickers.

I hate to be the “here are Livings’ PFF grades” guy, but since I don’t know jack about the Bengals OL… well… here are Livings’ PFF grades:

  • 2011: -13.3
  • 2010: -7.6
  • 2009: -1.9
  • 2008: -6.5

If you’re a believer of PFF’s grades, then Livings is not an appealing player.

In other news, Evan Mathis’ visit to Baltimore is over.  He’s on his way back to his home in Arizona.  The Ravens made an offer, but he left without signing it.  Reuben Frank reported that the Eagles are willing to beat the Ravens’ offer.  It’s a long flight from Baltimore to Arizona, so it may be several hours before we hear anything further.

The numbers for Kyle Orton’s deal are in.  It’s essentially a 3 year deal worth $10.5 million.  That’s about what I expected.

No news on the G Men, who remain quiet.

      If that happens you can basically pencil them into a first round bye.

      1. deg0ey says:

        Assuming he’s actually back to his best. There’s still the realistic chance that he doesn’t fully recover from his neck injury and struggles through the next few seasons before eventually retiring.

        We can hope, right?

  31. bula says:

    so let me get this straight. this guy griffen had 2 acl surgeries in the last three years? and the eagles didn’t sign him?

  32. Volt says:

    He is better than Phillip Buchannon I hope and can maybe be better a S than Reed D as depth..many knee concerns..on a 1 Yr? prob with this move

    1. I think they might move him to safety.

    1. Oh yeah, sorry.

      Also: The Giants signed Weatherford.
