Re: why no extension?

he is playing under a reasonable contract this year, his last year of his contract. if we dont sign him to an extension we can always franchise him to tune of about 20 mil next year.

personally, id like to see how he fits this year and see him play before commiting long term to him.

if nothing gets done, we can franchise him and work on an extension or trade him after this year.

Re: why no extension?

It's only been 1 week, so no we shouldn't be up in arms, or screaming yet, but if it comes down to franchising him (or whatever exists in a new CBA) then I would still classify this as a fail. McNabb deserves good money, but not 20mill for one year. I don't have any idea what his deal will be, but Smootsmack said something like 25mill for 3 years(not quoting tho), if we end up paying 20 mill for 1 year that would have been a gross miscalculation by the FO.

With all that said, it would shock me if MS/BA have a problem opening DS' wallet to get a long term deal done.

Re: why no extension?

If we've learned anything so far from the new front office it's that they don't rush things. The decision making seems much more calculated and thought out vs. what we've become accustomed to under Cerrato/Snyder. This is a good thing folks.

Re: why no extension?

Correct me if I am wrong, but wouldn't we would be compensated an additional pick or two if McNabb leaves via FA? Just like the Patriots get picks when other teams sign their FA?
Either way I know it will not get to that, McNabb has been sincere when he says he wants to be here. A deal will get worked out.

There have been some huge differences between current FO and our last one.
Getting rid of the dead weight (Smoot, Betts, etc.) was a major message/shakeup to the players.
Offering to trade some of our star players on our roster lets the players know things have changed.
But the most important one is they did not bite on paying a huge sum to a get a Karlos Dansby, Julius Peppers or Antrell Rolle even though there is a need at safety and LB.

Where the true sign of change has to show up is our luck in the draft in getting quality talent at each of our picks.

So hopefully no one will be rushing up to the podium as soon as Goodell says, The Redskins are on the clock. Good to know!

Re: why no extension?

i'd be shocked if we didnt extend McNabb before the start of the regular season. There's no real reason to rush it and leaving things ambiguous only helps us in the draft.

Absolutely. Allen and Shanahan are not stupid enough to give a 2nd and 3rd/4th for a 1-year rental QB.

He'll be extended and will play at least 4 good seasons here. Remember, Donovan WANTED to come here. He won't settle for a one-and-done either.

Yea, I think so too. Otherwise why would they have done it? I am saying if they don't get it done, then we've made a bad trade.

If the CBA doesn't get signed then I don't think there is a franchise tag anymore. I not 100% sure but I think those designations are done away with.

The thing is that traditionally most of these trades for players like this are contingent upon them resigning a new contract. Why wasn't that done before pulling the tigger on a deal?

Him being a Redskin for more than this year is paramount so why wasn't that secured during the trade...especially if McNabb is saying that he chose to play in DC? Seems like it could be the sign of a hasty trigger pull on a risky trade.


If there's not risk in the player than it's certainly in the deal that they haven't secured him on paper beyond this year.

I agree with this. I don't understand these Sunday night deals these past two weeks. I understand you want to avoid rumors, or McDaniels/Cutler style rumors and angst, but certainly we should have tried to lock him up first, and if we couldn't than why not?

There is a lot of time to get a deal done, but the best time to have it done was when the trade was announced, or if not, then at least announce that the framework is in place. Right now, this does not seem anywhere near the done deal that some would like it to be.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't McNabb deny this during the press conference, saying that it was something you people (the media) dreamed up. That is what I got out of watching it, but I may have heard it wrong. ???

I hope I'm wrong or an extension may be harder than if he chose to be here.

Re: why no extension?

I thought I read that McNabbs agent has been in talks with the Skins trying to work out a deal? I thought the quote from the agent was they were getting closer but still had a ways to go.

It's a sign of respect to the other ball clubs that were looking to trade for him. Apparently our conditional pick was more than most people were offering so that helped us, but you'd better believe he'd rather play here than Buffalo or Oakland.

Re: why no extension?

The only thing I can think of is that McNabb is asking for a whole lot more than Allen is willing to pay. He is due around 11M this year, and as a top ten QB, it can be expected he will want at least a 4-5yr deal worth a minimum of 50M with a bonus and guaranteed dollars in the 15-25M range. Manning is going to get 20M per, and Brady is looking for a similar contract so McNabb is going to want a huge deal as well.
