Re: why no extension?

I think our new management isn't as enamored with shelling out Dan's money in ridiculous sums as the past regimes. My guess is they take more seriously the idea of fiscal responsibility and cap smart contracts. Sort of ironic that it took until there actually wasn't a cap for the FO to finally operate like there is one.

Could you imagine Vinny without a cap, his eyes would have popped out of his head.

Well said, and I totally agree. Chances are Donovan's agent is trying to steamroll management into a huge contract like we've given past their prime vets in the past, and has come to find out that club isn't in Bruce Allen's bag. I wouldn't be surprised if the perceived "delay" has something to do with the two sides starting negotiations very far apart numbers-wise.

Re: why no extension?

The Skins better pray that they sign him before the season starts. If he sees our lack of OL talent this season without a new contract he'll be on the first plane out of DC when the season is over.

Don't let this season start without signing him to a new contract. That would be the dumbest thing you could do next to trading a 2nd & (3rd)/4th round pick for him.


If I was McNabb I'd see how this season goes and how the FO plans on outfitting the OL. If they don't draft an OL or offensive help, I'd let this season ride without a new contract and then get on a competitive team next year, a la Brett Favre.

Re: why no extension?

What the no extension might mean is that Shanny has his eye on a nice young QB to be the franchise guy and Donovan's understudy for a few years, then whammo, bye bye McNabb.

Or it could mean that we actually have a FO that won't overpay people and are taking their time.

Re: why no extension?

Smith said he thought it was in the Redskins’ interest to extend McNabb “because they gave up a high [second-round]” draft pick to the Philadelphia Eagles (plus another choice in 2011) in the trade. The Eagles and Redskins announced the trade on Sunday night.

Contract talks are Smith’s area and that is where his client would like to leave them.

“I don’t focus on that,” McNabb said. “But I do expect to be here, to be here for years to come.”

That seems like the Redskins’ plan as well. They do not view McNabb as a quick fix but as a long-term solution.
this was taken from the redskins official site

Re: why no extension?

They're probably letting the guy settle in for a bit, they've got time to hammer out a contract with his agent. I'd have to believe that numbers were talked a bit or else we wouldn't have bit on the trade.

Yes. We've only had McNabb for a week. Chill people, smart extensions take time to work out.

I agree....We know for sure McNabb didn't come here as a one year rental. There's plenty of time to hammer out an extention despite the uncertainty surrounding the 2011 season. A deal will get done, it's just a matter of when and how much.

Isn't this an idoitic trade if we only have McNabb for 1 season? Then it'll be a one year rental where we gave a 2 and a 3 to a division rival.

If we get McNabb for 3 years or so, I kind of like it. If we get him for 1 year, we've wasted more picks. I don't see how it can be seen another way.

Yes.

If Vinny had done this he would have been ripped to shreds.

Re: why no extension?

I know people are sold on the new FO, but I am not sold yet.

As many skeptics have mentioned, the trade reeks of the old DS. Will see the exact details of his contact extension and will reach a conclusion then.

Also waiting on the draft as well. If we draft a WR or something, I will be pissed.

No rush, he's been here a week.

They're going to get him signed, relax.
