Re: Dre' Bly wants to be a Skin? That's What I Hear

Anybody know Bly's contract? I would trade Springs for Bly either straight up or us getting our 3'rd rounder back if the cap hit is reasonable. I'd rather have bly who wants to be here than Springs who doesn't.

well, bly is 1year 4.2mill, but he wants a new deal, and synder would give him one. we'd have to know what numbers they were throwing around before we could tell about cap implications.

post june, springs would count 2.5mill this year and 5mill next year (pre june, it'd be 7.3mill this year), but he might forgive some future money to help him get traded.

Re: Dre' Bly wants to be a Skin? That's What I Hear

Springs is better than Bly, I have no doubts about that.....


But does anyone know Bly's liablilty. I'm a huge Shawn Springs fan, and I would love to have him on the team next season, but I'd rather have Bly for 14 games, than Springs for 8

I agree I think a HEALTHY Springs is a better corner than Bly. This is the first I've heard of Springs being unhappy in DC?

However, I don't think we'll get a FULL year out of Springs. Bly has been very consistent, and seems to make it through the years, all games. Last Year played all 16. Missed very few games in his career.

Well Moss turned out to be a great player, but that says nothing about the strategy of unnecessarily giving players under contract new deals.

Re: Dre' Bly wants to be a Skin? That's What I Hear

Is anyone tired of players determining what is best for the team. Springs signed the deal and is making some decent money this year so he should shut up and talk about how he is going to help us.

I didn't see him complaining 4 years ago when he received that fat signing bonus.

Also, we know that when healthy, Springs is dominant in this defense. Why take the risk on Bly?

Re: Dre' Bly wants to be a Skin? That's What I Hear

You're right GMAC 14 games is better than 8!
Either way Rogers is gotta fight hard to start now. Consistantly missing interceptions that hit you in the hands or chest is just unacceptable for an NFL CB. How many picks to Rogers have? 1 INT all year?

You have some points but Springs has to share in the blame for last year's debacle. The D was pathetic while he was hurt. Now if he was pushed to come back too early, that would be a reason to be bitter.

If he doesn't like the direction of the team, he should accept his 7 million for '08 and play for new contract in '09.

Re: Dre' Bly wants to be a Skin? That's What I Hear

I dont know why everyone is jumping on this Bly for Springs deal? Bly is 30, (thats not old!!) but he hasn't been all that great. He only wants to come here for that last big contract. All these signing bonuses DAnny gives out, 10million here, 10million there, thats why he wants to be a REdskin. Its not for the tradition, the prostage of the program, its the money. as is with all these guys they bring in. 10 million up front for a 32 year old LB?? that is nuts. WE didn't have to pay him that much. I think we could have gotten Fletcher for about 6 to 7 million up front. Smoot signed for what 2Million? I am sure he could have gotten more elsewhere, but WANTED to be a Redskin, not for the money!

I really don't think he's taking that much of a macro view of things, I think he's just uneasy with the way the team has been shopping for corners, he's old and gets banged up easily, and the writing is on the wall for him.

He just wants some long term job security and obviously with his injury history and age the Skins aren't willing to fully commit to him and understandably so.
