Re: Trent Williams has signed and is practicing today
 
I'm excited and all, but level headed??? he got 36million guaranteed. We will see if he is level headed once he gets that first big check!

Personally I think he should have been in on time, even if his guaranteed was only 35Mill.

Regardless. I love the way things are shaping up!

i like it. but with no cap this year, was there no way to put the entire bonus into this years book? i don't understand why they would prorate the nearly $37M bonus if they could get it all into this uncapped year. anyone have any idea?

maybe in case there's not a next year.. they don't give him all of it off the bat?

Re: Trent Williams has signed and is practicing today
 
where's our gosh darn cap expert? i need to know this. it will haunt me if we had the opportunity to put all that guaranteed money into this uncapped year and chose not to do so.

tryfuhl 07-30-2010 11:01 AM

Re: Trent Williams has signed and is practicing today
 
maybe they figure it's smarter to leave that money earning interest than cough it all up at once

I'm sure that they can find a way to stay under the cap if it comes back

Yes, levelheaded, he's the only top 5 pick that's been signed, I'd say that's levelheaded. Missing 1 practice is not a big deal, I think it's awesome that he didn't pull some bs where he held out until 3 was done so that he could work his deal off of that one, i'ts a big deal that he's in camp now and I think it was levelheaded to get in now.

Wow, that's an insane contract...let's hope he's good.

Re: Trent Williams has signed and is practicing today
 
well as far as I know we're still in decent shape even if there WAS a cap this year

that's a lot of money to earn interest on and I'm sure that's their reasoning

Allen's aware of all of this no doubt, freeing up that much space in future years could lead us back into the perpetual cap fixing

Is Trent going to wear #72 still or did Mike Williams give up his number #71 to him yet?

[quote=tryfuhl;715813]encourages extra spending per year instead of looking more long term[/quote]ah, gotcha. from snyder's standpoint, i agree 100%. from allen's, i think it's freedom.

they could even FRONTload contracts

Great news. I like this quote from the kid as well:

[COLOR="DarkRed"]"I know I'm here to do a certain job, and that's to protect the blind side," Williams said. "If I go out there thinking about the bucks and not doing my job, I won't be here long. I just kind of put it behind me. I'm going to try to save and play my butt off."[/COLOR]

And
[COLOR="DarkRed"]
The other offensive linemen gave Williams grief for missing the first day of camp and forcing them to take more repetitions. He understood hazing was coming, and said he will "carry the pads all day long." And with his signing bonus, Williams joked he needs to talk to his financial advisers about finding the money to pay for teammates' meals throughout the season. All he said he needs is a house and a car to drive to work. He was informed that fellow lineman and Oklahoma product Jamaal Brown wants a car from Williams.

Responded Williams: "He can keep wishing on that one."[/COLOR]

lets see 21Mill in april = no show mandatory camp. Let's just let him work and get paid, no need to give a 22 year old 37Mill his first day at work. The salary cap will work itself out...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this mentality. Let's hope that he really has a good head on his shoulders, stays humble and hungry, and becomes the perennial all-pro we are all hoping it is. God knows, Washington is due its blind-side wall.

Re: Trent Williams has signed and is practicing today
 
[QUOTE]No. 1 pick Trent Williams signed his contract early Friday morning and joined the team for practice as the starting left tackle. His immediate plans thereafter: "A nap." Williams spent a sleepless night Thursday just outside the environs of Redskins Park as he waited for his agents to finalize his deal with the team. He even thought about watching Thursday's opening session. "I was nipping at the bit to drive by and see what was going on," he said. Instead, he hunkered down in his hotel room with instructions to stay close to his phone. And that's what he did, unable to sleep. The call came at 4:30 a.m. and then it was way too late for shut-eye. "They wanted me here at 6 a.m.," he said. "No point in teasing myself with one hour of sleep." Former left tackle Chris Samuels, now a coaching intern, said Williams "did really well his first day and he's going to get better." Linebacker Brian Orakpo, who played against Williams when Orakpo was at Texas and Williams was at Oklahoma, likes his former rival. "He loves to work to get better," he said. "He's a phenomenal tackle. I have been going against him nearly every day and he keeps getting better. He has such explosive feet and power." Williams enjoys getting tested by Orakpo, who had 11 sacks as a rookie. "When he left Texas, I knew he was going to be a force to be reckoned with," Williams said. "I didn't expect to see him every day."[/QUOTE] from the redskins "redskins rule" blog (and yeah it ticked me off when they took that name, I oughta get some royalties or somethin, of course i'd have to pay matty, and probably wouldn't see a dime. I wonder if Ben Dogra would help me out!)

its something many people over look when they analyze a back though... i just love watching him pick up the blitz and lay a good one on those backers, even though all that hitting gets him into trouble (like after INT's)
