If we let him go, which I don't think we will, it would have a beyond Antoino Pierce like effect on productivity

I can't see where this doesn't work out.

I agree, but I've heard the Eagles are interested in him.

That would break my heart.

I think London will stay, I wouldnt be mad at him if he ended up leaving to go to a team where he thinks he can get another crack at a Super Bowl Ring soon... I mean he's gotta fall off at some point...

THat being said, I really hope he stays in DC. One of the best guys on the team right now.

London's camp has been hinting at their dissatisfaction with the contract talks for a while now. I think the real issue was the lack of seriousness of talks during the season. I don't think he WILL leave, but I do think the FO has rubbed him the wrong way.

That writer needs to check his facts, Cullen Jenkins signed with the Eagles. As far as Fletch goes though, I want him back, absolutely. I wish a deal had been done by now but I think this FO knows how big of a priority he is. At least I hope so. If it gets to the point where he signs with another team, this FO deserves all criticism it gets.

Well he's got a new camp now. Fired his agent, according to Jason La Canfora and others

GW is in St. Louis. Fletcher has followed him just about his whole career. I wouldn't be surprised if he looks that way if things don't work out here.

But I think they'll work out here. We've got a ton of cap space, there's no reason we don't get it done with him.

[quote=SmootSmack;890331]Well he's got a new camp now. Fired his agent, according to Jason La Canfora and others[/quote]Yeah I just saw that. London is playing hardball with the Redskins right now, which I don't think they (or anyone) anticipated.

A lot of time for this to get done still, but from Fletcher's perspective, the Redskins had years on years to give him security in exchange for a discount, and they wanted (justifiably) to make sure his body would hold up.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)
 
And I'll give the Redskins some credit: this must be a frustrating situation and they have at no point gone public with any of their frustrations.

I still want to see the results though. For every bit of praise that Bruce Allen deserves for being great at writing contracts, I don't know if he'd ever get a free pass on Fletcher going elsewhere and having even just one last strong season.

just get it done, he's irreplacable.

Are we really that desperate that we're calling a 36 year old LB on a 5-11 team irreplacable? As much as I like Fletch, we need to start looking in another direction. Let's get another young guy in there that can go with Riley for the next several years.
