Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

It was stated earlier in.........somewhere that we had 45m WE HAD to spend. NO idea as to the accuracy of the figure and with that sort of reliable audit trail......well

Everywhere I've heard says we have 26 million to spend. That's not including figuring out what to do with McNabb/Haynesworth

Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

If we cut/trade McNabb and Haynesworth, how much would we have?

My thoughts exactly. He made way to many big plays for them last season.

Who needs Andrew Luck?

This is the dawning of the John Beck Era in the NFL.

45 million SOUNDS like a lot of money to have to spend, but let me put it this way:

Lets say the Redskins sign Nnamdi Asomugha on July 27 to a 6 year, 92 million dollar contract with $40 million guaranteed.

That signing bonus is amortized over the life of the contract, so 40/6 = 6.67/year. But the year one salary is probably going to be 3 mil or less, with a large option bonus somewhere around year four of the contract. So Nnamdi's cap number in 2011, lets put it at $9 million. That's about 1/3 of our available cap space, and still plenty left to do whatever we want, outside of giving out a similar type contract to a different player.

But the Redskins just wrote a check for $40 million to Nnamdi, plus another $2 million in salary due in week one. So while $45 million is a lot to spend, the Redskins just spent to the NFLPA minimum on just one player. And still have $18 million of cap flexibility, even after signing rookies.

So yeah, one elite free agent pretty much gets the Redskins 60% (or more) of the way to the spending limit, and from that point on, it's pretty much just a normal offseason.

Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

I dont want to sign ANY big name veterans that werent on the team last year. I want to Re-sign Moss, Brown and Buchannon but other than that bring in young cheap guys for the O-line at guard and tackle for competition.

MY ideal starting lineups.

WR - HANKERSON, SLOT WR - MOSS, WR- ARMSTRONG, LT - WILLIAMS, LG - LICHTENSTEIGER, C - MONTGOMERY, LG - COOK OR HURT, RT - BROWN, TB - TORAIN, TE - COOLEY, QB - BECK.

CB - BARNES, CB - HALL, FS - OTOGWE, SS - LANDRY, OLB - ORAKPO, ILB - FLETCHER, ILB - RILEY, OLB - KERRIGAN, DE - CARRIKER, NT - BRYANT, DE - JENKINS.

We should go with all of our young guys this year and see what we have, we are one more year away from fielding a completely competitive team and if the young guys turn out to be successful we have players for years to come and if it doesnt work out well we have all of our draft picks next year and we could be in the top 10 picks again. I want Beck to be the starting QB, maybe he is a steal. He was a 2nd round qb and never did get a complete fair shake.

That may be a great idea but we have to meet the salary cap floor so we have to spend some.

See, that just ain't right.......this economy.....
I remember the day when 45m used to buy something...........
Thanx G!

Do people realize that bypassing the youngest and most talented free agent class EVER is just as harmful as foolishly spending?

Re: Redskins ready to $pend?

Definitely let the young guys get some playing time to see what we have to work with for the next year. We are absolutely a couple years away from fielding a competitive team. Also, I'd like to see us give Beck a shot. We give everyone else one.....
