Gregg would move Vilma to OLB for Fletcher.

Completely didnt think about that, and i think youre absolutely right....

Re: Make a Decision on London Fletcher's Future

I say sign him before the season is over, the Redskins really need Fletcher he's the heart and soul of the Defense and a positive influence.

London Fletcher believes in Redskins, who should re-sign him before he reconsiders - The Washington Post

Re: Make a Decision on London Fletcher's Future

I'd keep him around as long as he plays if he is willing. Then I'd figure out a way to make him a coach.

I 2nd that. I coached inside backers in HS and college for years, i used to think Singletary was the best at getting everybody lined up, using his reads, and locking in on his keys, but Fletcher is right there on his heels. Singletary had a harder job with the 46, but Fletchers emotion and atention to detail is amazing. Keep him forever!!!

Re: Make a Decision on London Fletcher's Future

I'd hope we keep Fletcher as well, but if he signs somewhere else, I think we should think about drafting Luke Kuechly from Boston College.

Yeah i agree and he is the face of the entire team in my opinion. Of all the players we overpaid throughout Danny's tenure, Fletcher is one player that i would be cool with giving way too much.

From SFREDSKINS article:

Quote:
Really, thereís no need to negotiate. Fletcher could probably dump his agent for this one. The Redskins should simply ask the fair-minded Fletcher how much he wants to continue to provide the type of professionalism uncommon in their organization.
That article is the best thing about the Redskins ive read in a while, thanks for posting it.

Does anyone know know where Fletcher's primary residence is? As good of a player is i wonder what team he would want to stay connected with after retirement. If this was his last year do you think he sees himself as a Redskin, Bill, or Ram?

This is something that we often overlook as fans, the very basic things in life we take for granted like a home, schools, etc. For most of us, the older we get the less inclined we are to pack up & move. Fletch is at the point of his career where he's certainly not likely to get enough $ to move solely for $.

He might go somewhere like NO, as Schneed suggests, because its simply a good fit, good coach & less adjustment. A lot of other teams might offer a chance for another super bowl, but he may not be inclined to want to start over again. I think he'll stay unless he feels insulted by the Skins contract offer.

Re: Make a Decision on London Fletcher's Future

Bruce Allen is no fool. He knows what Fletcher means to this Redskins team. He's a leader on defense, arguably the best MLB-ILB in the NFL. He knows Fletcher could very well be on his way to his 3rd consecutive pro bowl. If the Redskins can make Donovan McNabb a deal mid season in 2010, they can make London Fletcher a deal before free agency begins after the Super Bowl.

I'm very optimistic that Allen and Fletcher's agent will get a deal done very fast. The Redskins without London Fletcher is like the Baltimore Ravens without Ray Lewis. Not going to happen!!!!

Re: Make a Decision on London Fletcher's Future

I am going to tell you guys, I love London Fletcher. But if he wants the 7.1 million we payed him this year, we dont need him. Where have we really gone with him. I am sure we can get a young LB for 4 to 5 million and use the overage to help pay for another corner.
