Re: Rock gets new deal with Skins.

JLC is a little late on this one, but he was on Comcast......

Rock Stays

From Jason Reid: Return specialist Rock Cartwright is back. Sorry it took me so long to get this to you guys but I was on Comcast SportsNet's "Washington Post Live" and couldn't check my voicemail.
Vinny Cerrato, executive vice president of football operations, called to say that the team reached an agreement with Rock.
Terms were not released, but a team source said Rock received a three-year, $3.35-million deal that includes $500,000 in guaranteed money. Rock was believed to be seeking a guarantee of $2 million, but it appears those dollars just weren't out there for him.
"The coaches are all real happy Rock is back," Cerrato said. "You always want to keep your leaders on the team."

Good deal. I'd have given him a mil just to be nice. Reduce the salaries and make the deal the same amount. He isn't going anywhere for 3 years anyway plus it'd give him some more security.

If anyone deserved a nice pay increase it's Rock. $3 years, $3M isn't too shabby for a former 7th round pick.

How much of an increase did he receive? Isn't the vet min around $800'000? I'm glade he is back but I feel sorry that he could not even find a team that had an interest in him. I guess he must have to have mixed emotions about the deal.

I believe he made $680,000 last season

Not sure about the exact dollar amount increase, not much. And no where near what he was looking for in the FA market.

I would have to think with no interest in him elsewhere, he is probably relieved to still have a good gig with the Skins, with a reasonable contract.

I'm glad he kind of came back to earth a bit, great KR specialist, special teamer. I'm glad they came to terms. Good move on both sides.

A top of the line special teams player, a solid and consistent kick returner, a great locker room influence, and a guy who ensures we adequately go 3-deep at RB.

I'm glad we got this done, and he got a chunk of change out of it. Nice.

great move. Gotta wonder if he got any interest at all from others or just no interest in a bigger contract.

It wasnt too long ago that we were cutting our returners and signing guys for 30 million to return balls...3 million as a returner is much better. The draft is a great place to get returners, but we know what we get with rock, and hes plays with a lot of heart

This quote is from Rock yesterday March 6, in his interview on Redskin.com, sounded to me at the time when I read the article he was getting anxious to get something done. I'm real glad it worked out. Rock has turned into a solid ball player and team leader. It would be nice to see him finish his career hopefully as a Redskin.

Cartwright Plays 'Waiting Game'

"I think Drew has talked to a couple teams, but no one has really [offered] anything, so for now we're waiting to see what happens," Cartwright said. "I know the market is really slow right now. We're just going to play it by ear and see what happens."

Asked if he enjoyed the free agency process, Cartwright admitted that it was "a little frustrating" to have to watch and wait.


"I would have hoped something would have happened by now, but it hasn't," he said. "It's part of the business. I'm sure something will happen, hopefully soon.


"The big-name [free agents] go high, so you just sit back and play the waiting game."


Cartwright reiterated that he would like to stay with the Redskins.


"I would love to finish my career as a Washington Redskin, but ultimately that's not up to me," he said. "I love the organization, I love the fans and I would love to be here."
