Re: Trent Williams has signed and is practicing today

where's our gosh darn cap expert? i need to know this. it will haunt me if we had the opportunity to put all that guaranteed money into this uncapped year and chose not to do so.

Re: Trent Williams has signed and is practicing today

maybe they figure it's smarter to leave that money earning interest than cough it all up at once

I'm sure that they can find a way to stay under the cap if it comes back

Personally I think he should have been in on time, even if his guaranteed was only 35Mill.

Regardless. I love the way things are shaping up!
Yes, levelheaded, he's the only top 5 pick that's been signed, I'd say that's levelheaded. Missing 1 practice is not a big deal, I think it's awesome that he didn't pull some bs where he held out until 3 was done so that he could work his deal off of that one, i'ts a big deal that he's in camp now and I think it was levelheaded to get in now.

they always find a way to stay under the cap, no doubt about that. but i'd like if we'd start doing it correctly as opposed to robbing peter to pay paul so-to-speak

Re: Trent Williams has signed and is practicing today

well as far as I know we're still in decent shape even if there WAS a cap this year

that's a lot of money to earn interest on and I'm sure that's their reasoning

Allen's aware of all of this no doubt, freeing up that much space in future years could lead us back into the perpetual cap fixing

encourages extra spending per year instead of looking more long term

Re: Trent Williams has signed and is practicing today

Great news. I like this quote from the kid as well:

"I know I'm here to do a certain job, and that's to protect the blind side," Williams said. "If I go out there thinking about the bucks and not doing my job, I won't be here long. I just kind of put it behind me. I'm going to try to save and play my butt off."

And

The other offensive linemen gave Williams grief for missing the first day of camp and forcing them to take more repetitions. He understood hazing was coming, and said he will "carry the pads all day long." And with his signing bonus, Williams joked he needs to talk to his financial advisers about finding the money to pay for teammates' meals throughout the season. All he said he needs is a house and a car to drive to work. He was informed that fellow lineman and Oklahoma product Jamaal Brown wants a car from Williams.

Responded Williams: "He can keep wishing on that one."


Redskins Insider - Trent Williams happy with deal, gets right to work

lets see 21Mill in april = no show mandatory camp. Let's just let him work and get paid, no need to give a 22 year old 37Mill his first day at work. The salary cap will work itself out...
