Updated: Redskins Make Major Roster Cuts

With an uncapped season in 2010, the Redskins are expected to cut many high-profile players with big contracts because, well, there are no cap ramifications. We decided to take a look at the most likely candidates to be released later today before the Redskins, minutes after midnight tonight, begin what many league observers believe will be an aggressive push in free agency under Coach Mike Shanahan.

Very interesting. I hate to see some of these guys go (maybe one or two is willing to come back at the vet minimum?) but the bottom line is that none of them won anything here and we have esteemed professionals running the show now.

I hope we smart enough to get of some of these bad contracts. I would disagree with Carter though, the guy has played well with the contract he has. Id like to see Portis name on that list as well.

Carter should be kept as he may have some value. The rest can go. I would like to see CP gone as well but it appears that he is staying.

Portis doesn't really apply because he gets 7 plus million regardless.

I like Carter too but frankly he has been pretty inconsistent playing the position he desired the last few years. I have a gut feeling that he may not fit in with their vision and he does have a pretty big deal.

The skins get some dead cap space by cutting them but this year that means nothing.

Carter can be traded in a package deal.

re: Updated: Redskins Make Major Roster Cuts

Are Griffin and Carter not trade worthy? We wouldn't be able to trade those to for a Brandon Marshall or Julius Peppers, but why not try to trade them before cutting them?

No one's going to trade for a $3.9mill Fred Smoot contract, but Carter and Griffin's contracts look reasonable enough.

Carter gets a 7 million dollar roster bonus in August. A lot of teams may be more uncomfortable with that than we are.

Plus, couldn't you argue that a lot of guys would be double digit sack guys with Phat Al and Orakpo on the same line?

The criticism that I have heard on Carter is that basically he is a one move guy and a liability against the run. I like him but it seems that he just isn't worth was his deal pays him.

Why would anyone trade for him? They know we are thinking about cutting him.

re: Updated: Redskins Make Major Roster Cuts

I agree with everyone on the list except Carter, he does have value but I don't know to what extent if the base defense is going to be 3-4. He may not be considered stout enough to play DE and may lack the skill set to play linebacker where he's experimented before. Where do you play him and on what downs, excepting the 4-3 or hybrid alignment?

The Washington Post thinks we may cut Carter.There has been no report from out of Redskins Park claiming we will be cutting him.

in watching carter play it seems all he did was try the speed move to the outside and around the tackle. that was certainly the case 2-3 years ago. this past year i cant say i saw him do this same move everytime like years past.

i didnt go to any games this year so i cant say for sure, but years past at games his one move was obvious.

this year looked like a different carter. i dont really know what to think of him now.

rock - man id hate to see him go just for special teams coverage. with the loss of kharey campbell and thrash, rock was making a ton of tackles on special teams.

any chance khary might be available for SP?

I think Carter will stay because Haslett doesn't know who's going to be the two rushing OLBs that will make it work. Orakpo will likely work out, but whoever is opposite him is not yet determine because could be questionable.

It would be foolish for them to release any reports on anything right now. I am assuming that Reid has a source or two that he is basing his article on.
