A simple restructure means the player gets their money up front rather than later on. Why would a player not be willing to do this in your opinion?

In this case there has been to much talk about SS not even being here next year to begin with. No one shoe fits all, not ALWAYS is a player willing to restructure.
What would be the be motivation for him to restructure to help the team?

Generally, restructure means more money up front. Thers's other ways to restructure, usually involving an extention of some sort, but when the term restructure is thrown out with no qualifier, it's almost certainly referring to a base salary being converted into a signing bonus.

I'm willing to restructure, just don't feel I need to take a pay cut. Matty knows my stance on this. I'm sure a deal will be worked to keep me here through 2011.

Nothing, it's blantently apparent that you depth at corner in our defense if you are going to be successful. Remember last year?

Re: David Macklin our new CB

Re: David Macklin our new CB

With a grade of 71 and his experience. Macklin is a solid pickup for depth, and they got him bargain priced.

Best of both worlds in my opinion. GOOD MOVE!

Re: David Macklin our new CB

I have heard repeatedly that spring is not willing to rework his deal. In an interview he stated "I will be in Washington if they pay me what my contract says" I dont think he is going to do any reworking of any contract. If he was going to do that, I think he may have all ready done it.

Re: David Macklin our new CB

So what are our chances of trading Springs now? I find it hard to believe that the Skins aren't persuing that. We've got four guys who can start. Not the greatest in the world but all of them are starting quality on most teams. Four is a lot.

I get the feeling that Matty may be willing to convert a percentage of your enviable salary into a bonus to keep you happy. With all that extra you should be able to enjoy some of the finer window-service irish cuisine.

This massive depth build up could just be due to a fear of getting bit in the ass again just like last year.

The tricky thing with Springs is trying to predict the point in time at which Rogers' natural progression and Springs' natural regression will cross paths (assmuning that Rogers is good at all). At that point, keeping Springs on the roster (at least as a corner) doesn't make much sense. So if they get rid of him this year, its in essense a big gamble trying to predict that:

a) Springs' production is about to fall off the map
b) Rogers' production is about to spike
c) a mixture of the two

I wouldn't take that gamble just yet. I would keep Springs and Rogers as the starting corners to get another year of experimental feedback. If Rogers appears to be making progress and Springs appears to be slipping, I'd cut bait with #24 after this season. Cutting him now is just a big gamble, especially since teams in our division could have interest in him.

Close. I was thinking along the line of a tee shirt to wash his windows!
