Re: What would Betts get on the open market today?

At minimum, Betts could have gotten Lamont Jordan money on the open market, which I believe was around $30M, with close to $10M up front. I'd love to see our FO hold back enough cap to sign more core guys to extensions during the season. It was great that they got Sellers deal done before he could hit the market next offseason. The FO must do the same for Cooley, because he will command a nice sum next offseason.

Re: What would Betts get on the open market today?

Im worried that this year's inflated market is goin to cost us Cooley next year. As loyal as the guy seems, he's gotta know that if he doesn't re-sign during the season, he will either be franchised or hit the open market, but either way he will make bank. Does anyone know how they will calculate cooley's franchise tag #? Do they average the salaries of the top paid TE's or FB's or the limited amount of H-backs in the league and who gets to decide what position he actually plays? I think the skins would get a deal with they counted him as a FB or H-back.

Re: What would Betts get on the open market today?

I saw this in an NFL.com mock draft article and thought it was kind of interesting...
Quote:
8. Houston: Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma -- There is still a chance the Texans trade for a running back -- maybe a Ladell Betts -- but if they don't, Peterson is the class of the running backs in the draft. If Houston trades for a runner or signs one in free agency, then Penn State tackle Levi Brown is a smart choice.
What would we ask for in return?

*I don't know if this was written before or after the Texans got Green.

franchise tagged TEs make 4.5mill this year.
franchises FBs and H-backs count as RBs and would make 7mill this year.

Re: What would Betts get on the open market today?

For some players it's all about the money, and for others, that is not always the most important thing. Betts knew he could have gotten more on the open market, but he chose to stay. Smoot probably could have gotten more had he chose to wait, he chose to come here. Maybe that says something for the Redskin tradition.

Betts could have easily gotten over $30M.

Give some credit to this front office for locking up Betts with such a cheap deal.
Without a doubt. I was really suprised when we locked him up.

Re: What would Betts get on the open market today?

I'm not convinced that this is as much about Betts' loyalty as it is his agent screwing up (why would you not at least test the waters, even if you were going to resign with the Skins) but you have to commend our front office for getting this one done.

I wonder how Chief Chucking My Spear feels about this one?

Re: What would Betts get on the open market today?

Betts is definitely looking like the steal of this FA season, and Dockery the anti-steal.

Kudos to the front office. Even the Fletcher and Smoot deals look great in this market.

Well all I can say is thank god Betts is a "Core Redskin" and signed the deal with us, instead of hitting FA.

Re: What would Betts get on the open market today?

i think it was a great move one of the very few this team has done lately. Too bad they didnt think about getting dock sign before he hit FA. Maybe they could have paid dock if they didnt waste 10 on AA or 10 on carter or 10 on randle el or 10 on the great lloyd. Matty you just kill me lol.

ugh, they did. they tried for a year, but dock refused to comment on wanting to come back, cause he and his agent already knew they weren't going to sign anything that wasn't insane until seeing what the FA market brought. I wouldn't want him for 5mill+ a year anyways. If you really think they didn't try or just missed the 80 articles about it during the year, well, that's just silly.
