Re: Roster Cuts coming and gone

A lot of bleedingheartness over a guy that has never done anything for the Redskins except to become a useless draft pick.
And he made how much money while doing that?

Approximately 1.6 million guaranteed on his contract...and whatever incentives he met, which are probably very few, if any. Not sure about taxes though...

Re: Roster Cuts coming and gone

So 864 players will be cut between now and tomorrow at 6pm. Of those players, only 256 will find spots on the practice squads. Does anyone think that the Skins might find a useful player in those cuts? Anyone expecting any surprises?

I thought it was interesting on the broadcast last night that Bruce Allen left open the possibility of trades happening before tomorrow evening. We have a roster that seems to have some hidden talent, I wonder if we might be looking for a couple draft picks rather than just cutting players. Also Lance Briggs has formally asked the Bears to trade him, per Twitter.

Re: Roster Cuts coming and gone

Is Briggs an inside backer? Does he still have anything left in the tank? If so, Stallworth for Briggs straight up (maybe throw in a 7th rounder). Why does he want to be traded?

If he's an OLB - nm.

Two articles on Briggs, 2nd one is older

and

Bears' Linebacker Lance Briggs, an Underrated Star | Bleacher Report

I don't know Chicago's defense, so I don't know if he makes sense to try for or not, just a "named" player.

Re: Roster Cuts coming and gone

Lance Briggs again? Remember the proposed trade w/the bears in 07; our #6 for Briggs & #31? We got Landry w/that pick.

Briggs is approaching the age of decline & he's always been a weak side 4-3 OLB. We've got 2 great starters at OLB & as we saw last night we could have a couple pretty good backups in Jackson & White.

We've ran that rabbit once before. Hell no. I have issue with a guy who's 3 years into a heavily front loaded contract wanted to renegotiate. They've already paid all the big money so now he's using that same tactic as before. I normally favor players in situations like these (especially rookie contracts), but **** Lance Briggs.

Re: Roster Cuts coming and gone

I wonder how safe One Man Gang is right now? Rob Jackson and Marcus White playing really well throughout the preseason. I dont think Marcus White makes it through waivers back to our practice squad. I think it might come down to L.Alexandar being a great special teams player. Its going to be interesting.

This. Don't want him...don't need him.

If we're going to bring someone this late, they better be from a 3-4 defense. Regardless, I think it'd be stupid to trade for anyone at this point.

I hope that we pick up a young QB to develop. It is hard to predict who without knowing who got cut. But if Ariz cuts Bartel, we should bring him back for a second tour in DC.

Re: Roster Cuts coming and gone

Apparently to someone it looked like Torain was on the cut list until Royster got his concussion.. wow so does Royster go on IR, if this is the case?

Redskins had Torain on cut list? - Scoop Du Jour - NFL*Blog - Yahoo! Sports
