So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

With every game (especially today against the falcons) Ladell Betts' value on the Free Agent market grows. Will we be able to retain him with a contract offer??? By the end of the year, he may have close to 1,000 yards. That would make him a hot commodity considering he's a great pass catching back as well.

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

Hell yeah!! i am totally surprised with the downhill running!!! He has been hitting the hole like Reggie Brooks used to. not stepping on the back of our lineman's ankles. No offense to CP, but Betts has completely impressed this fan!!

Betts has proven he's a tough, speedy reliable every down back. The more backs the better, but I'd love to see Duckett just roll over people.

If Betts wants to stay then i'm sure we'll keep him here. If he asks for too much money then i guess we'll let him test the market.

Well, we had the money to piss away over AA so I don't see why not.

Wonder if he's worth hitting with the transition tag?

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

I guess he is, who else is coming up to free agency with that much value ? Not saying that Betts would cause teams to throw Redskins money at us for him but if he was franchised and we could press a team into a good deal I guess it oculd work. I'd still want to keep him, but you know he'd walk around "unhappy" all the time, then you have the reporters constantly briggin up the (cue dramatic music) RUNNING BACK ROSHAMBO or whatever name they come up with.

Damn I hate losses !

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

I want to keep Betts almost more than anything. I'd say he's our number 2 or 3 priority (with DL and DB acquisitions first).

It is becoming more and more apparent that 2 capable RBs is necessary in today's NFL.

True

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

I must say, I've been impressed with Betts. I saw him as a mediocre, at best, type of backup. I figured he'd be gone and we'd keep Duckett. But he's really proven me wrong over the last couple weeks.

That said, I wouldn't be suprised if we let him walk. Or get a mid round pick for him.

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

I think if it comes down to it, cutting ties with someone like Mark Brunell and maybe a guy like Wynn will free up money to keep a guy like Betts. The lesser of two evils, I guess.

Also consider the hit we're going to take if let AA go, which it looks like we will.

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

Betts is going to be due for a nice raise, probably too pricey to justify keeping him as a backup. I'm thinking he could end up somewhere like the Jets as their starter.

Yeah, the Jets are the first team that comes to my mind. They don't have much running game to speak of, and for some reason we always find a way to deal with them.
