They need to get rid of this RFA tender bullshit.


[QUOTE]The highest qualifying offer for Wallace is about $2.75 million, nearly matching the amount that Pittsburgh is now under the salary cap. To franchise Wallace would cost Pittsburgh $9.5 million, which it currently does not have the salary-cap space to absorb.[/QUOTE]

This is so messed up, and not even sure how or why players even allowed this into the new CBA. Basically allows a team to cheat a player out of much deserved money. Why? Because nobody is going to sign him to a big contract AND give up a first rounder for him.

The real question is whether someone will sign him if they think Pittsburgh will match the offer.

I'm really disappointed in the CBS article's FA long snapper section. Sorely lacking in that department.

From that article:

[B][COLOR=#808080][B]9. Albert Haynesworth[/B][/COLOR][/B]

[IMG]http://cbssports.com/images/blogs/dl-ranking-haynesworth.jpg[/IMG] [FONT=verdana] (US PRESSWIRE) [/FONT] [B]Breakdown:[/B] Haynesworth makes the list on reputation alone. And we mean his pre-Redskins reputation, when Jim Washburn got the most out of the man now known as one of the biggest free-agent busts in recent years. Not even Bill Belichick could revive Haynesworth's career, cutting him midway through last season.

The Bucs signed him only to release him a few weeks ago. Maybe his career is over, but then again, coaches and GMs are seduced by potential. And Haynesworth certainly has plenty of that.

[B]Possible landing spots: [/B][I][B]Realistically, Haynesworth's probably done. That said, we wouldn't be shocked if the Redskins signed him to another $100 million deal.[/B][/I]


Really? Well the media ever give up on the BS, do they not see a new sheriff in town?

Here is the link for the DJax story...

[url=http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/7635043/philadelphia-eagles-use-franchise-tag-desean-jackson]Philadelphia Eagles use franchise tag on DeSean Jackson - ESPN[/url]

I wonder if teams are going to let this DJax situation play out instead of trading for him. They could just wait and see if the Eagles are truly going to pay him $9 mil for one year.

Oh and the Browns won't be tagging Hillis...

The media will stop associating us with big name free agents when Dan Snyder no longer owns the Redskins, and we have a decade of cheap frugality under a new owner. Only then will it become tired to associate us with big name free agents. But it will still be mentioned in history, as we have become the team most commonly associated with trying to build through free agency.
