Around the NFL - Offseason thread
 
Figure we have a centralized thread for off-season moves by teams/players.


Starting out with this.

[url=http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-rickywilliamsretires]RB Ricky Williams says he's retiring from NFL - NFL - Yahoo! Sports[/url]

[QUOTE]“The NFL has been an amazing page in this chapter of my life,” Williams said. “I pray that all successive adventures offer me the same potential for growth, success and most importantly, fun. … As for what’s next, I am excited about all the opportunities ahead—continuing my education, running The Ricky Williams Foundation and whatever other opportunities present themselves.”[/QUOTE]

Don't know this belongs here but Williams and Davis have been reinstated. I expect to see Skin's start to work on #83's contract. Also, I believe Fletch's contract is ready to go for the start of FA.

Well, this came out an hour ago but I'm not sure it's accurate. It's coming from JLC.

Per @JasonLaCanfora the #Redskins are expected to put the franchise tag on Fred Davis.

It would mean Landry is going to become a FA.

TE franchise tags are going to run $5.4 mil this year. I just see them working out a long-term deal with Fred. Especially since Allen got him relieved of a 1-yr suspension vs what he got (4 games).

I wouldn't be surprised if they let Davis go into the season with the 1yr franchise deal and just let it play out. If he doesn't have another substance abuse slip-up and is playing at a high level (no pun intended), then start working on an a new deal mid-season.

What's the testing frequency for multiple losers? I assume they step up the testing schedule........?

Makes sense. The franchise tag for TE is very reasonable. Make him earn a long term deal.

Don't know off-hand, but I think once you're in the substance abuse program (which happens after just one failed test and isn't public knowledge), you get tested with greater frequency than other players.

Franchise tag on Davis is a defensible move, but I don't think it's the right one. Assuming they believe in him as the long term TE (and perhaps they don't), there's not enough TE demand amongst teams for him to skip town with the first offer he gets. 5/$27 gets it done and I don't think he's going to be worth less at this time next year. He'll just be a year older.

I agree, sort of. He can be gotten with a reasonable long-term offer before FA starts. Every reasonable effort should be made to sign him before resorting to tagging him.

You don't reward a guy who's just failed 3 drug tests with a long term deal. That would be idiotic at the very least. He's one failed test away for being out a year. Absolutely not.

Franchise him. Make him earn it this next year.

You can sign him to a long-term deal and then axe him if/when he fails another drug test.

You figure with a personalized license plate that reads "sauced" the last thing you want to do is drink and drive, just ask Knowshon Moreno.
