re: Mega-Merge: 2010 Free Agency Rumors and Reports Thread

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.

Saying it will affect the locker room and team chemistry is a bit of a reach...
yeah it may be a stretch but not by much.

rocky is going to be making the same money other depth players will (golston, doughty, heyer, etc) yet he is a starter and has been a starter for years. so rocky has to take 400 more snaps than golston but still gets paid the same next year? after playing 5 years on a rookie contract as a starter no less?

if dansby is signed and rocky has to play next to him, doing the same thing he is but for 5 million less with no guaranteed future, i think it is fair to say he his going to be pissed.

playing 5 years with these guys im going to assume he has made some friends = players whispering about skins FO not paying their players and giving money to FAs.

i just hope rocky's locker isnt next to carlos' whom i believe he will have alot in common with since he will most likely be playing under a cheap tender while his counterpart hall got "shown the money" for a decent 7 game stretch.

in the offseason: "its a business rocky, no body said it was fair."

5 mins before kickoff: "were a family! we stick together! gives us all you got out there today! WERE GOING TO WAR! rah rah rah stuff!"

I agree 100%, If I'm Rocky I'm upset too.... Not really upset with the Redskins, but at the situation. The Redskins are really making the right move here. They're switching to a 3-4, which from what I understand (i really have no clue how to evaluate) doesnt really match Rocky's strongest skills. However, they cant just let this guy walk either... so I have no problem with The Skins' move here...but I certainly understand why Rocky would be upset. I mean if he blows out a knee or something, he really just lost out on a few million dollars. While Rocky McIntosh still makes a ton of money, he really hasn't had a real good NFL payday... so I understand his side of it completley.

I think a lot of players are being screwed by this situation.

re: Mega-Merge: 2010 Free Agency Rumors and Reports Thread

I think situations like Rocky's can be bad for team chemistry. Rocky, who has contributed loyally for several years, really does not see much fruit for his labors. But (presumably) Dansby, who has never contributed anything to the Skins, walks in on day one making three times as much or whatever. As a team we have a history of not always rewarding loyal service.

I think we would be a better team if we rewarded from within more and rewarded outsiders less. Maybe Shanahallen will fix this situation over the long term. For this year, however, we will have such a turnover that such situations are unavoidable.

Things like this are happening all throughout the league.

Yes, that is true. But it seems to me that good teams like the Colts try to minimize such dynamics, where other teams do not.

I'd love to see your support for this statement.
