Redskins Related News & Notes (4/12)

Redskins | Barnard works out
Wed, 12 Apr 2006 12:21:24 -0700

Chad Wiestling, of Integrated Sports Management, has confirmed to KFFL that free agent P Brooks Barnard (Packers) worked out for the Washington Redskins Wednesday, April 12.

Redskins | Taylor has trial delayed again
Wed, 12 Apr 2006 11:45:14 -0700

The Associated Press reports Washington Redskins S Sean Taylor had his assault charges trial delayed Wednesday, April 12, as defense lawyers raised misconduct allegations, charging the lead prosecutor with using the case to promote his work as a nightclub disc jockey. The trial was delayed until Monday, May 8. Taylor faces a minimum of three years in prison on each of three aggravated assault charges which stems from a June 1 confrontation in a Miami neighborhood.

Packers | Team faces obstacles to signing Arrington
Tue, 11 Apr 2006 21:58:06 -0700

Tom Silverstein, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports the Green Bay Packers face a few obstacles if they try to sign free agent LB LaVar Arrington (Redskins). Arrington wants to play for a winner; the Packers were 4-12 last season. Arrington wants to know whether QB Brett Favre is going to retire; the Packers still don't know the quarterback's plans. Arrington wants a big contract; the Packers have plenty of salary cap room but don't think they should have to pay considerably more than what the market bears. At this point a deal with Arrington is not imminent. The interest on both sides does appear legitimate. "There has to be interest from both sides if there's a visit," Arrington's agent, Kevin Poston, said Tuesday, April 11. "There were a number of other teams who were interested in him and he chose not to visit. He's realistic. To him, he's not a guy who believes in wasting his time." During his visit, Arrington asked the Packers if he could talk to Favre, Poston said. Poston said Arrington had not spoken to Favre as of Tuesday afternoon but was still interested in touching base with him.

Packers | Favre's retirement could make team spend money
Tue, 11 Apr 2006 18:31:26 -0700

ESPN.com's John Clayton reports Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre's retirement could be a financial disaster, but in a different kind of way for the team. With his $3 million roster bonus and $7 million in salary, Favre would make $10 million this year if he plays. The Packers would save $10 million of cash if he doesn't, but that's not necessarily a good thing. The Packers have a payroll of around $76 million, but that doesn't include draft choices or any other free agent signings. Not having Favre would take the payroll down to $66 million. With the new collective bargaining agreement, teams must have a minimum cash payroll of $85.5 million, meaning the Packers would have to spend $19.5 million just to make the minimum. With the players remaining as free agents, the Packers would be hard pressed to spend the money they would need to.



so we are at least looking at punters, taylor's trail delayed again, and could GB try to sign lavar and law out of an actual need to waste money?

Re: Redskins Related News & Notes (4/12)

I wouldn't mind seeing Maryland alum Brooks Barnard punting for the Skins next year. He was a great punter in college.

I wonder what his career statistics were, punt yd. avg., hang time, avg. return, 40 yd dash, Wonderlic, shuttle, number of reps, vertical, and shuttle time?


Maybe just punt yd avg, hang time, and avg. return. Punters don't really "play" do they?

Re: Redskins Related News & Notes (4/12)

I think punter will be one of the spots up for competition this summer. I'm disappointed that we didn't bring in one of the established kickers (Vanderjerk, Vinatieri, Longwell) for at least a visit. I'd hate to have a season like 2000 where we spent lavishly but ignored the kicker position. Hall scares me.

ugh, novak is terrible, he kicks too low and gets too many kicks blocked, and his leg strength is terrible. He's under contract with the cardinals right now.

Re: Redskins Related News & Notes (4/12)

As That Guy pointed out, Barnard has 1 game of pro experience...he filled in for Ken Walter on a snowy evening, and did pretty well. 4 of 10 inside the 20 with 1 touchback.

He was awesome in college, and help mold current Maryland punter Adam Podlesh.
