Updating previous reports, Mark Maske, of the Washington Post, reports the Washington Redskins are close to an agreement with their third-round choice, G Derrick Dockery.

Cool glad to hear that..of the 3 we drafted he was the one I wanted in camp on time the most. We are good at the other positions but this guy has a chance to contribute and upgrade the line right away.

If Jacobs wants to grab that 3rd WR slot, he better get in there as well. Granted he should know the offense, but working out the timing with Ram and working against Champ and Co will be essential if he is to contribute this year. Its tough for rookie WRs to succeed anyway.

I think anytime a rookie holds out it speaks bad vibes that could possibly haunt them for the rest of their careers. It advertises to the veterans of the team that the rookie sees themselves as so important and vauable that they put themselves ahead of team chemistry.
I think any rookie would be smart to take what they can get the first year or so and THEN work towards a bigger contract after they have posted the numbers.
Could it be that the rookies who hold out fear their numbers wont dictate a bigger contract?

Holdouts are ALWAYS bad...but I tend to forgiven the 1st rounder holdouts once they develop into star players. (examples being Lavar and Ramsey)
But...when you are a 2nd round WR...or EVEN WORSE...a 7th round QB, then you need to get your butt into camp and do whats right! There are no excuses....

I don't think any of these guys want to hold out with Spurrier. We've seen how he can get an attitude with a holdout. Remember Ramsey? Took a long time to get out of that dog house.

Jacobs needs to be there, he's competing with 3 other wr for playing time and holding out hurts u with amount of playing time

I pretty much agree with what everyone has said. Seems the hold up with Dockery is he wants a three year deal instead of the usual 3 year deal.
