True. Good call. Ladell did us right. I hope Cooley sees things that way too.

I realize it could buy us more time, and that alone could be worth it, but we won't have the cap room in 2009 to Franchise him again. I'd like to see a deal done before November.
Yes, signing him to a long term deal would be, quite obviously, preferable to franchising him.

Betts was a bit of a different situation though, at the time when he resigned with us i doubt he would have gotten big money anywhere else. No one really knew how good he was, outside of our staff.

Cooley on the other hand has shown over a couple of seasons how good he is and there will be big money for him out there if he hits the market. So it wouldn't make sense for him to sign a deal like Betts', he is simply worth more than Betts.

Yeah and as GTripp pointed out his moves after the catch are the best of any TE in the league. (Forgot about that in my little pro-cooley rant)

Re: SKINS 5.1 million under cap.

I believe that Cooley likes the DC area too much to want to leave. I also believe that he is a true Redskin. I don't see him going anywhere. He has made appearances at Beach Blitz, Keggs n Eggs, and various other things. I think he feels right at home here.

I don't know about that. If Betts had hit the open market, he may have had quite a few suitors. He was coming off a career year and teams like Green Bay, Buffalo, the Texans and even Atlanta may have been willing to throw more money at him than we paid for him. Remember, when he resigned, the insanity that was this year's free agency had not yet even been hinted at.

That's fine. Given the Skins modus operandi, I do not doubt that there would be some flexibility. I haven't looked at the cap sheets so I wasn't sure just how much.

As there will be a 10M bump in the cap next year (which, as I recall, we are already tight against), I was more concerned that, if Cooley hits the open market, we could fairly easily be outbid for him as other teams will have significantly more cap room than us.

Yeah thats what i was getting at, we resigned him before he put up those numbers and showed the rest of the league how good he could be. I am sure you are right, that if he waited he would have gotten a big pay day elsewhere on the open market.

Which is why we can't let Cooley hit the open market.

I've heard this said about another player and I think it holds true with Cooley...if the 'Skins can't find a way of keeping him here...then I don't want to hear another word out of Gibbs, the FO, or anybody else about "Core Guys" and "True Redskins."

LOL. Nothing against GTripp, but I wouldn't say that he has a lot of "moves", but he definitely finds a way of breaking tackles.
