Remember though that this summer Saunders said he envisioned using Portis and Betts together on the field a lot. I'm sure he's got a bunch of tricks up his sleeve for the two of them in 2007

Provided that Saunders is still here, you can 'Betts' your bottom dollar on some good things from these two next year.

I think this signing is a great move, more for the signal that it sends than anything else. Aside from Samuels and Jansen, we haven't kept any of our drafted players. Betts gets it, he works hard, and he seems to appreciate being a Redskin. I'm glad the Skins finally showed their appreciation to one of their own.

Re: Ladell Betts contract extension

I really applaud the move, and I hope we'll move to re-sign some other guys too by the end of the season like Dockery.

Rumors are that Betts will get a bonus of about $6M or $7M.

Ditto. I'm worried that Dock wants to test the market. What do you guys think he's worth? I think he'll want a 10mil + signing bonus.
Wish we could give him AA's contract & send AA back out west somewhere.

Re: Ladell Betts contract extension

why don't we just move AA to Guard when Dockery leaves, that move might be the one that puts us over the top.

Re: Ladell Betts contract extension

Im glad we stayed in house. To me Betts has been one of our core guys, even though he doesn't start. Im happy we signed him, he earned it

I think Dockery will come at a fair price.

I have to admit I was down on him earlier but in recent weeks he's played very well and most of all I'd like to see us reward our own guys for once.

Re: Ladell Betts contract extension

I am happy that Betts has stayed with the team. Next on the list is big Dock! I sure hope we can resign him as he is really coming along this season.

Re: Ladell Betts contract extension

When you look at our free agent list the only names that stand out to me are Dockery and Betts. Now it's just Dockery. Hopefully, the FO is now on the phone to his reps working something out.

As for Betts, good deal. Good. Hopefully this is a sign of how things will be done in the future.
