Trimming the Fat

According to this article
http://washingtontimes.com/sports/20...5802-2563r.htm
we will be cutting five to seven players in the comming hours. Among them;

Cory Raymer
Walt Harris
Brandon Noble
Tom Tupa
Matt Bowen
John Hall
Taylor Jacobs

Ramesey will be kept to make a trade.There is interest among Chicago, Miami, Oakland and the New York Jets.

The article also states that after these moves the team will be lacking serious depth. If a CBA is reached, the cap number will be around 110 million, and with these moves we will be at 94.5 million in space (hopefully). That will put us 15.5 million under the cap. Under that situation we will have the space to make couple of moves I think. What are your thoughts on this warpath? Do you like that list of potiental cuts or would you rather see someone else go?

Re: Trimming the Fat

No real surprises here from this list.

If there's a new CBA we'll have plenty of room to make some moves to restore that missing depth.

Re: Trimming the Fat

If the cba puts the cap at 110 mil, then we would all have had headaches for nothing. But atleast we would've cut players the coaches probably werent to happy with anyway. I am a little hesitant about Walt though. I always thought he was great in the nickel spot because of his tackling and vet experience.

Re: Trimming the Fat

I know his best hit as a Redskins came in practice against Trung Candidate and I know he's constantly injured, but I have some reservations about letting Bowen go because of our lack of depth at safety. There are probably better options out there in the FA market, but we have other needs that also need to be address like DE, OLB, etc.

Re: Trimming the Fat

Anyone read any of those rumors by Dintello over on ES? The guy has a source inside an owner's office and has been dead-on with the last 4 CBA events.

I'm fine seeing Walt hit the road. I'd rather see him trying to run down receivers running for TDs in another uniform. He got burned too much for my taste last season.
Of any of those, maybe Bowen because he started off the 2004 season strong, but really, that's too many injuries and too long ago to think he might be something worth wild.

Re: Trimming the Fat

Will the Skins really be that far under the cap if a new CBA is reached? I thought that most of the restructures were contingent on there not being a new CBA. If that were the case, all of the restructured contracts would be gone and wouldn't be pretty much right back where we were, short of those releases and the 4.4 saved my cutting LaVar?

Walt Harris? He couldn't cover the Gatorade bucket and his tackling got progressively worse throughout the sesaon.. He aged very quickly as the year went on.. I'm glad to see him go..

Harris couldn't cover the Gatorade bucket, but the Gatorade bucket covered Prioleau. Did you ever see that pic?

Yes. His latest is that a new CBA is a "virtual certainty."

I saw that too. Hope he's correct--he said there would be a deal. I am not optimistic, but any little thing helps, I guess.
