My guess is that even thought Rogers was tendered that he will be traded for a 3rd and another lower pick. He's unhappy and the Skins don't want to keep an unhappy player. Maybe Rogers for Cromartie?

or maybe they tell him to shut the hell up, stop whining and go earn a contract, and he listens... wishful thinking I guess.

But, in general, rather than shopping outside of the organization for free agents, they try to draft people, develop them, and then give them market-value second contracts whenever possible. Such a dynamic rewards player loyalty with organizational loyalty. Is this not true?
Face it we're the Real Madrid of the NFL. Read over this and tell me if this sounds familiar.

It starts with a 3rd rounder but he'll most likely end up going for a second. It's kind of like the $20 auction game. At the beginning a person puts a $20 bill up for auction for people to bid. The catch is the highest and second highest bid have to pay. Everyone starts out bidding but eventually the bid gets above $20 and people start thinking about minimizing their losses. I learned about that in "How to negotiate Rationally."
The $20 auction and the dynamics of conflict « Confluence: Ben Byerly's Muddy Mix

Quote:
By the time the auction reaches $19, most bidders drop out. The person who had bid $18 will invariably bid $20 to break even. Presumably, that would bring the auction to a close, right? Wrong! One professor who utilized the Dollar Auction as a teaching tool for more than 20 years said that the bidding will usually continue well past the $20 mark.

Consider this case in point, a day the professor will never forget. He used the dollar auction while teaching a course for executives in organizational behavior. At the end, the “winner” paid $54 for the twenty dollar bill. The loser paid $53. The rest of the class watched the futile bidding war with bewilderment and glee. (Proceeds would be donated to charity).
So whats the point? Well when you have an attractive barter chip and it starts out at a low price more people are willing to take a long hard look at it, eventually more bidders leads to an increased price. In short, asking for a third rounder in exchange for Boldin is very smart.

Boldin for a 3rd Denver wants a 1st for Brandon Marshall, and both want new contracts.

Where Julius Peppers, Darren Sproles, NFL free agents will sign - Don Banks - SI.com

Julius Peppers, defensive end

Where he will sign: Washington -- The Redskins are poised to come after the ex-Panthers franchise player with their go-to combination of Daniel Snyder's private jet and a Brink's truck, which seems to work every time. Washington has been signing the biggest available fish in free agency for so long now we really can't remember when the Redskins weren't the market setters.




Darren Sproles, running back

Where he will sign: Washington -- The Chargers came to the conclusion that as a situational back, Sproles wasn't worth the $7 million-plus price tag he was in line for if they tendered him as a restricted free agent. But Mike Shanahan covets him from his days competing against San Diego in the AFC West, and the Redskins have been known to overpay for skill players in free agency (Antwaan Randle El and Brandon Lloyd come to mind).

Not agreeing with it, just passing along the predictions. I'd prefer Dansby and Chester Taylor.

SI writers typically are crap...no breaking news there.

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

Ok I have a question for anyone who may know the answer.

What will happen next year with all of the tendered players? You can only recieve the tender once correct? So all of these guys who do not sign long term deals will become UFAs at the end of the 2010 season. Is this correct?
