No. Although London Fletcher has been a tremendous performer for us over the course of the last four or five seasons, we still have options if we are unable to re-sign him. Mike Shanahan has stated that re-signing Fletcher is an off season priority and I think they'll get a deal done before free agency starts.

But...there are other options to consider if the Redskins and Fletcher don't come to terms. There are other inside linebackers such as Bart Scott and even young men already on the roster like Lorenzo Alexander, Marcus White, Keyaron Fox or the coaches could even move Rob Jackson to the inside. But all in all, I expect Fletcher to re-sign with the Redskins before the beginning of free agency.

This will probably work like it did with Hall.

You're telling me that replacing Fletch with the likes of Lorenzo, Keyaron Fox and two players that arent even close to being ILB's wouldn't leave us weaker? There was a reason Bart Scotts role was reduced last year btw.

I'd try and find a guy in the draft that can step in and start alongside Riley for the next several years.

I don't know. We're 5-11 and not going to the playoffs next year. My point is I want a guy that's going to be here for several more years. If we're going to win 4-6 games, I want to do it as young as possible.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

our 5-11 record doesn't say anything about London Fletcher so I'm not sure what that proves. The point is, you can still bring in a young guy and keep a great player. It doesnt have to be one or the other.

We don't have cap issues, we don't have a young LB on the team that needs the playing time, furthermore we don't have a young LB on the team that deserves the playing time. Even if you bring in player in the draft whats the likelihood that we dont skip a beat by letting Fletch walk.

I just don't understand the reasoning.

It's called player hating

So theoretically, we will fix the QB position...improve the the outlook for some Offensive skill positions and reinforce the D...and get JJ back.
AND you don't think we'll really improve?
Interesting.........
Getting rid of Fletcher for any kind of reasonable number totally smacks of a Pre-Shanahan move......

It's a sad day when a Giants fan gets what (about) half of Skins fans don't...

Lorenzo Alexander has excelled at every position he's played for the Redskins during his entire tenure. He already said that he could play the inside position. Bart Scott has been successful playing ILB for years for the Ravens and Jets. The only reason he was benched was because his mouth got him into trouble. Rob Jackson, because he's still young with potential and upside, could surely fit into the inside because of his instincts and athleticism.

Well if Lorenzo himself said it then surely he could match the production of London Fletcher... As for Rob Jackson while he could eventually make a good OLB he doesn't have what it takes to play inside and I don't know where you're getting that idea from. His instincts last year lead him to lose sight of the ball on more than one occasion, but sure let's have him replace the anchor of our defense.
