At one point he was 11 pro bowl alternates out of 12 years, what a smack in the face that has to be. Anyways, no one better for younger players to be around, he should be kept for that alone.

This is a smart response.

A few tweets from a ES insider.

Adam, London, Landry, none of them close at this time @LL56_HTTR called it a game of chicken, and thats on point



From various other tweets, seems London is trying to max out on this contract since it'll be his last one. Looking for a Ray Lewis type of deal around 3years/25million.

Thought about this immediately when GW landed in St. Louis. Have no idea what their MLB sitz is...?

could not agree with you any more. london is a must sign, he has shown no signs of aging and isn't prone to injuries, why the hell would we not sign him? because he is older? i look at is a battle tested, i'm not entirely sure but isn't he the only current redskins player with a ring? so if we let him walk we are letting a super bowl champion, and pro bowler(one of our only ones lately) and a guy who has never missed a game in his career just walk out the door cause he is 36? i say sign him to a solid 3 year deal keep him happy let him end his career here and find a guy to shadow his every move for the next 3 years.

Agreed. Fletch knows this is his last big contract so he's not gonna get shortchanged. But he doesn't strike me as the type to play hardball. And for the Skins this is no time to nickle-and-dime. Market value or pretty close should get this deal done.

Don't even go there. I'm still sick we let Pierce go to the Giants.

Actually, he is playing hardball. He fired his agent because he wasn't getting the contract figures he's expecting (think Ray Lewis). Hate the break it to him, but if he's wanting a Ray Lewis type of contract, then somebody needs to drive him to the airport. Salary cap be damned. You don't pay a 36/37 year old aging LB that type of money.

In fact, I would LOVE to see him get any type of contract near that on the open market. Not happening.

Well if that's really the case and he's expecting Ray Lewis money then I agree with you.

Whatever offer Fletch gets from another NFL team (unless totally absurd), the Skins should match/beat that offer.

Is it really unreasonable to give him a deal up to 3 years $20 some million?

$6M+ cap hits for 3 years?? Sounds reasonable to me.

Especially if we're willing to keep DHall and his $6.8M cap hit. :vomit:

I imagine if they find a starting CB in free agency, you'll see D. Hall become a cap casualty.

If they don't, it's because they weren't looking.
