The Redskins have been active in free agency, though not in the way we're used to seeing. Signing WRs Joey Galloway and Bobby Wade is a good example of the new approach. The team has eschewed the big-name signings this offseason for depth and competition at multiple spots. Knowing they lacked depth and competition at several positions, the team has signed several veterans at key spots — especially running back and defensive line — with the idea that some of these acquisitions would not make the final roster. You can add receiver to that list. Signing Galloway and Wade likely would preclude Terrell Owens from coming to D.C., but you shouldn't rule out future signings at the position. After all, Galloway failed in the No. 3 role in New England last season, and Wade was among the early cuts by the Vikings, despite having led the team in receiving the prior season and the team being young at the position. Although the team thinks highly of Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly, the coaches aren't afraid to push them a little bit.
