Will Arrington take a pay cut? (MERGED)
 
Will Arrington take a pay cut and stay with this team, or fly to another team to get more cash?

As a fan would ya like to see him back next season?

Is it almost certain that he's actually gone in the next few months?





As you can tell I'd like to keep him around another year, but unless he takes a pay cut gonna be virtually impossible.
and then I'll miss #56.

He said he wouldn't take a pay cut. he said he wouldn't even restructure.

Well let's get rid of him then. Don't say ya wanna stay on the team, when you've been overpaid, WAY OVERPAID since you've been here. Really thought he'd be here for life, but then again I really thought he'd accomplished more in 5 years. Sounds like Smoot talk. I wanna stay on the Redskins forever, blah, blah, but I'll take a few more million and a purple sex boat, sure. Do we promote from within or take another chance on Michael Barrow?






ahhahahhahahhahahhaahhahahaha.

Trade him for Randy Moss. Could it happen?? I'd even take joey porter. **** i don't even know that would happen. If we were gonna bench him this year we should have traded him earlier.

we need to find a team that needs a great Defenender and has a great offense. Who??? Who??? Raiders come to mind. KC even seattle, those Ds took huge strides this year same with the colts. ST. louis??? THe cards have a moderatly good defense but arrington could help. THey have amazing WRs and i would give them everything for one of them. Green bay?

It be a huge cap eat if we dumped him guys. I know we did it once but hopefully we learned to keep relationships better so we wouldn't have to again. If the main reason they want to rid themselves is his playing abilities then he probably stays because he is better than taking a huge cap hit AND signing someone else in his spot. If he is disgruntled ala Coles then they'll get rid of him I would think.

if he is gone possible dream trade scenario for me would be this: how about an almost even cap swap of Tony Gonzalez for Lavar? that would provide them with a defensive playmaker they need and would provide us with a proven viable compliment too Moss and Cooley. I know it ain't gonna happen but I think a whole lot of people said the same thing about the possibility of a Bailey for Portis deal a couple years ago.

Lavar still has trade value in my eyes. His and Randy Moss's contracts are very very similiar. I mean it could be a straight swap. Randy didn't work for them. We may package Lavar and ramsey to our favorite trading team the Jets but i would want offense from them. I don't wanna trade anyone for anyone on Defense. I would love a dominant TE but i think that it wouldn't happen. We need to pick up a DE through FA or the draft. I still think lavar would be great at DE but it seems everyone thinks that bridge is burned

Funny, I was thinking of Lavar in a Raiders uniform this morning. Not sure R. Moss would be happy being the #2 reveiver though... ;)

Hell, imagine if we got him and picked up Santana's brother? There's a gent's clothing company in the UK called Moss Bros. Has a kind of ring to it, dont you think? :)

It would confuse the hell out of the announcers and stats men anyway!

Senorice Moss? What is his name? Is he in the draft? Any vid of him?

I don't like Lavar Arrington, and I want him off the team.

I know a bunch of people will probably chastize me for that statement, but consider, what has he done for the Redskins since Gregg Williams has been here? Squat. Considering the reputation of Gregg Williams, it's highly doubtful that Williams is just wrong on Arrington. He thinks Arrington is a liability, he can't be relied upon to stay home when a play isn't coming his way. He's overly aggressive, tries to jump routes, and takes poor angles (probably because he has lost a step, but thinks he can still run at the speed he always used to). He's not an asset in pass coverage, can't stay with the better tight ends in the league, which means Taylor has to do it. For all the money we're paying Lavar, doesn't it say the world of him that Williams takes him out on 3rd downs?

Given Lavar's history, and given Gregg Williams' reputation for being such a good defensive mind, I'm going to side with Williams 100 times out of 100. I'd like to see Lavar gone, there are players we can get to perform better than him in the Gregg Williams system that would cost tons less.

Now, how feasible it is to get him off the team is an entirely different story. Trading or cutting him before June 1 would result in a $12 million cap hit in 2006. If he were on the team in 2006, he's count $12 million all the same. But we'd have to pay someone to replace him, so it would be a net hit to our cap. If we get rid of him after June 1 though, the cap hit will be more palatable. Should be interesting to see what happens.

Sounds about right. I love Lavar but I think maybe he moves on if monetarily possible.

I Think Lavar Sits Down With Coach Gibbs In The Off Season And Takes A Pay Cut To Remain A Redskin.sounds Simple Enough
