I believe with contracts like these they are contingent upon him making the final roster. Whatever signing bonus agreed upon would be his to keep, more than likely a small amount, and we could cut him with no ill effect on the cap.

The deal more than likely is bottom rate since he was out basically the last two years with injuries. He'll be lucky to make it out of camp healthy. Complete speculation on my part of course.

Re: Jerome Mathis signed

Well, was his girlfriend acting up? You have to look at both sides of the story.

But seriously, if someone does something wrong, is that person to never be allowed to redeem himself? That is unforgiving and harsh.

It was from an earlier post, we gave Randle El 30 million. Just a mix up.

Re: Jerome Mathis signed

A good pick up if you ask me. His maturity issues dont bother me. In fact maturity issues have never bothered me.

You have to ask yourselves one thing: Is this guy going to help us win games or not?
I believe the best people to make that call are the guys in charge, and im not talking about danny.

Guy was never charged for anything with his girlfriend, so that should be done with. He also punched a Teammate, ok, wow, big deal. We are talking about football players, not school teachers.

Re: Jerome Mathis signed

Anyone think this spells the end for Thrash? I think it might. One of Thrash's pluses is that he can return some kicks. And Gibbs was always the one who loved Thrash so much - makes me wonder if Vinny feels the same way.

Now I don't know if Mathis can cover on teams as well as Thrash could, so that's a question mark. But if he can, I can definitely see Thrash being expendable.

Re: Jerome Mathis signed

I hope this is just a move to bring in some competition at the WR & PR positions, and he doesn't make the final roster.

I don't think this is the end for thrash, hes inexpensive, can cover on special teams, and hes durable. Those three things are I think good reasons to keep him.

Mathis is not a big dude 5'11 191, and injured a ton last season, only played 5 games. I'm not sure even if we kept him that he would be tackling anyone on special teams.

Re: Jerome Mathis signed

Sketchy pickup. I don't like it mainly due to his issues off the field. The guy sounds like a real loser.

Re: Jerome Mathis signed

If the front office wanted to give the media and fans some excitement in an otherwise dull offseason, mission accomplished.

This is definitely a head scratcher. Does Mathis really fill a hole in the Skins' roster? Punt returner, maybe....

All this is even more mysterious given his off-field record. I'm eager to have Zorn and/or Cerrato weigh in on this acquisition.

Re: Jerome Mathis signed

I'm wondering if they're inclined to give Rock a couple of extra carries this year and in doing so will have Mathis as KRing insurance should anything happen.

Doubtful. He's probably here temporarily as a "just in case" and as a burner that can run routes for JC during minicamp if Moss is having hammy problems.

Re: Jerome Mathis signed

I don't see him making the final roster. Wonder why Cartwright hasn't
worked with Brian Mitchell on learning to field punts. If he did it would
only increase his value.

Strange move, but he just may be a warm body for now.

Re: Jerome Mathis signed

"Could it be that the vague rumors of Ladell Betts being on the block are true?

If Betts were traded, and Rock was shifted to Clinton Portis' primary backup, then I could see the need for a new kick returner.

To me, it has to be either that, or, that the Redskins clearly just want someone to push Rock Cartwright to improve even more.

Stay tuned..."

I agree with this. He can be an asset if we use him as one. We could have done alot worse and although Rock does well at KRing, he could always be pushed more and we really dont have an explosive PR. Mathis could serve as that. I like him #4 in the slot on a fade man to man against a dimeback too...
