re: Updated: Redskins Make Major Roster Cuts

Just got a text from WaPo saying Randy Thomas, Rock, Betts, Randle El, and Smoot all released.

The one cut I am expecting that hasn't come yet is Mike Sellers.

Then there's Andre Carter. The Redskins declined to pick up the contract option on Randle El, opting instead for a severance package. They could do the same thing with Carter, but I have to imagine that they will be picking up the next few years of his contract (through 2013? 14?).
Doesn't AC have a $ 7M or so roster bonus this year? If so, he might not make it.

Yeah, it's structured like a new contract though if picked up, so it would be something like $7 million to pick it up, but it would also put him under contract for 5 or so more years. So that $7 million is a good investment if he's going to play three more seasons here, and probably a tough pill to swallow if it's just going to be 2010.

In other words, we kind of have to make a decision on his role in future seasons, not just coming off a strong 2009. He's instantly one of the prizes of free agency if we release him though.

re: Updated: Redskins Make Major Roster Cuts

I think we have to pay him like $2 or $3 million regardless though, even if we don't pick up the $7 mil. Same with Randle El, which has already been decided.

re: Updated: Redskins Make Major Roster Cuts

I'm tempted to say I love this, but at the same time a lot of classy guys are getting let go. ARE, Griff, and Betts will be missed.

By my count, the Redskins have shaved 54 years of experience from the roster and more than $12 million in 2010 payroll

I already feel a sense of freshness around Redskins Park. Even with the retirement of Chris Samuels and Thomas being letting go. It just seems like a real change of the guard..hmmm.

But then again, I think this is part of what got us into trouble, keeping guys who were not producing to what we were paying them out of loyalty. It's a bit sad though. Hopefully they'll land in other teams.

I don't think he's a good fit for our rumored 3-4, I don't see the Skins picking up a $7M (or 4-5M) tab for him. We'll find out shortly though.

Yeah, I mean these are guys who I really enjoyed cheering for...but I can't disagree with any of these releases... its ashame Betts got hurt though... I think that injury is the reason he's gone.

They will. Would actually be curious to see ARE go back to Pitt. Vet min plus incentives lol.

re: Updated: Redskins Make Major Roster Cuts

All of the moves made financial sense except Rock Cartwright. But it wouldn't surprise me if he was copping some sort of attitude that Mike Shanahan didn't take kindly to, and that's what led to his release.

Randy Thomas and Antwaan Randle El and Cornelius Griffin all needed to be cut purely based on how expensive they are. Clinton Portis needs to go, too, but it seems the coaching staff has taken a liking to him, which I don't quite understand.
