That might be the main reason - after all, we literally have no decent depth on O-line beside few guys.. I can understand this move, I guess..

Edit: I used to be a fan of Heyer; I was hoping that he would improve throughout the season with experiences.. But apparently, he hasn't improved much and coaches didn't have any faith in him.. So..

The Denver Broncos have placed a first-round tender on restricted free-agent WR Brandon Marshall, reports NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi.
We need to give up the 1st rounder and try and make a run at this punk.

If I'm not mistaken the only players left to tender are JC, C.Rogers, and Monty. What time is the deadline to tender RFA's? I wonder if they're waiting until the last minute to see if they can work out a trade before the deadline?

Rocky will likely be traded regardless. In a 3-4, you need 2 starting pass rushing 3-4 OLBs(i.e Ware and Spencer,, Harrison and whoever is across from him) and depth to back them up. Rocky doesn't fit that bill.

Filed to ESPN: Redskins placed first-round tender on QB Jason Campbell. Tender is 110 percent of last year's base salary, over $3.1 million.
Not the 1st and 3rd. Don't know that it really mattered much.

rocky has shut up and played for 5 seasons under his rookie contract. imo this is a bad move for team chemistry and a bad message to send to our players.

Bad for team chemistry? Every team in the NFL is doing the same exact thing?? The players should be pissed at the players union for allowing this to happen. The Redskins are simply doing what they're supposed to be doing.

Saying it will affect the locker room and team chemistry is a bit of a reach...

Well Florio commented that by only giving Brandon Marshall a 1st round tender, the Broncos were essentially letting teams know they were ready to move him. It could be the same here - the skins are placing a lower tender on him to let teams know we want to move him. Or, knowing no one would give up a first for him, let alone a first and a third, the skins just offered him the lower of the two tenders.

Can't blame Rocky for being upset, there are a lot of players upset about being caught between a rock and a hard place right now. A bunch of guys are missing out on potential big pay days. He knows it's the nature of the business though, I don't see him being a long term distraction.

As for Heyer getting tendered I say why not? You can't get rid of everyone overnight with a limited FA pool out there and only 5 draft picks.

if we sign dansby to a multi year deal, i think rocky will be real pissed. we drafted this guy, watch him slowly develop into a decent linebacker, then when he is set to hit FA after playing on a 5 yr rookie deal we slap him with a 1 yr 1 million dollar tender?

rocky = dansby, atleast stats wise they are almost identical.

lets low ball a skins player who has done nothing try and do what he is asked, and then give money to a FA linebacker who wants to get paid? havent we heard this story before? dont we know how it will end?

dont give me that "its a business" crap. right, its a business when we are going to low ball your worth b/c we can but it's "family" when we hit pre-season and regular season and need you to go out and play your hardest without worrying about injury.

how willing is rocky going to be to sacrifice his body for the team after this?
I hear you on the Dansby arguement...I dont think Dansby is a fit here and I think he is going to demand just a crazy figure, not Peppers crazy, but a tier below something like 7-8 mill per year. Id say no to Dansby, but I would wait on Rocky to see how he fits in the scheme before extending at this point. Like I said before, Rocky been solid.

Does this mean Jason Campbell is essentially on the trading block? If the Redskins aren't in position to take whatever quarterback they covet this year, I wonder who the starter will be?

I would think it means he won't come cheap....but he can be had for the right price.
