Larry Moore cut
Per the WP:
[quote]Meantime, the Redskins cut center Larry Moore, according to a source familiar with the situation, saving $1.3 million in cap space. The eighth-year veteran had been Washington's starting center the previous two seasons. But the Redskins signed Cory Raymer and re-signed Lennie Friedman to compete for the starting job, making Moore expendable.
Moore was released last week, but the move was never announced by the Redskins. Moore is expected to sign with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to another source. Moore missed the Redskins' minicamp last month with a bruised foot. The Redskins would have waived Moore sooner, but NFL rules prohibit an injured player from being released.
The Redskins fall to $2.4 million under the salary cap, giving them room to sign their draft picks and perhaps another free agent, after the June 1 cuts. The Redskins haven't addressed their need for a pass-rush specialist. Around the league, among the defensive ends who may be waived are Joe Johnson of the Green Bay Packers and Hugh Douglas of the Jacksonville Jaguars. [/quote]Hugh Douglas anyone??

How old is Hugh? If the price is cheap, why not??
Douglas is 32, will be 33 by time the season starts.

Looks like Hugh is ready to put last year behind him

Hugh Douglas would be all right. What about Joe Johnson ... does he have anything left?
|SKINSnCANES ||04-29-2004 12:10 AM |
if Hugh Douglas is released and isnt expensive he would be an upgrade over Wynn, and we could get rid of Wynns big contract. I dont see him being an elite player anymore, he was probably the biggest free agent bust last year. If hes not in shape now though then theres not much of a point.
Whats up with Tony Brackens. or mabye A.O. (the dolphins end). Not like we could offer a second round pick for him, and I dont know if id want up to get up a first. The Fins do need a good tackle.

I've heard Chidi Ahanotu might be available this summer as well. What do we think of that?
I think Raymer should be the starter at center. Let Friedman back up Raymer and the guards
|manicd ||04-29-2004 12:17 AM |
Hugh Douglas. Come on. Ex Eagles never do squat anywhere else. I hate the Eagles as much as the rest of you, but give them credit, it seems like they know when to get rid of a guy.
|SKINSnCANES ||04-29-2004 12:18 AM |
yea Ramer should start. Its weird that they released Moore without saying anything. Where Ahanotu play again? I only know about him because of Madden and I do lots of fantasy drafts and forget where peopel are from. Cinci comes to mind but that doesnt mean much.
Anyone know how much cap space we will save if we cut Fiore, or he retires?
|SmootSmack ||04-29-2004 12:24 AM |
Chidi was with San Fran last year. But the year before that he was with Gregg Williams in Buffalo
|SKINSnCANES ||04-29-2004 12:32 AM |
Well San Fran is going to be the Arizona in their division next year. They arent even in a rebuilding phase, they are just in a getting rid of phase. I hope their starting QB gets injured and they throw Ken Dorsey in their so he can prove to the world how grat of a QB he is. THey think he doesnt have a strong enough arm...well, im sure its not the strongest but that guy is a leader and all he knows how to do is win.
Chidi could be a good pick up for us, im sure Williams will look into him, or atleast know whether or not they should go after him.

he made his name with the bucs a few years ago i believe and since has been on 2 or 3 teams. johnson came on pretty strong at the end of the year last year if i recall correctly and i would be for the douglas signing if he takes a big time pay cutt cuz when motivated and healthy, he is a monster on the edge.
|skinsfanthru&thru ||04-29-2004 12:59 AM |
i wonder what took so long to cut moore and also why didn't they announce it sooner?
|SmootSmack ||04-29-2004 01:37 AM |
They couldn't cut Moore before because he was physically unable to play and you can't release a player who isn't healthy supposedly. So I guess he's been given a clearance to play now
|SKINSnCANES ||04-29-2004 01:45 AM |
I meant it said they cut him last week but didnt announce it. He was cleared to be cut last week, they just didnt tell anyone other than the league office that they cut him.
