Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

I would like to see us sign LF but not if he demands too much money. It seems like older players just hit a wall and at his age no telling where that wall is.

We cannot lose this guy. he needs to stay a Redskin for the remainder of his career, and then as a LB coach.

"Itíll take some time to get done but we both want to get a deal done." - London Fletcher a week ago.


Hope he's right, we CAN NOT LOSE HIM.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

Redskins close to re-signing London Fletcher
By Mark Maske

The Washington Redskins are close to re-signing free agent linebacker London Fletcher, a person with knowledge of the negotiations said Friday.

A deal between Fletcher and the Redskins was within reach and could be completed as soon as later Friday, the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the talks are confidential.

Neither Fletcher nor his representatives immediately responded to requests for comment.

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said at the annual league meeting late last month in Palm Beach, Fla., that the team remained intent upon re-signing Fletcher and conversations were ongoing.

The league-owned NFL Network reported earlier Friday there were hopes the deal could be completed this weekend, before the Redskins begin their offseason conditioning program Monday.

I hope the Redskins don't tie too much money up in someone that old. I love Fletcher and what he brings to the field, but I don't see him being able to contribute much longer. I'd give him good money this year, a little money next year, and practically all incentives past that.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

considering that no other team seemed interested in signing Fletcher to a huge multi-year deal at this point, I think London should be happy with whatever he gets.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

he still deserves to be paid well, not top $, but above avg. starter $. Want to see a report that he's signed though, then I'll be happy.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

London's value to the defense and team is grossly underestimated. Also he (once again) had the most tackles in the league last season...I don't think "old" is an apt descriptive...just experienced at this point.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

It will likely be a McNabb type deal. Meaning a lot of money (well a decent amount) but with no real commitment. Easy to get out of

i agree, and I'm not saying that London doesn't deserve to be paid...the guy has been underestimated for much of his career. With that said, fortunately for us, other teams are shying away from him probably because of his age. That's good for us! And, if he's getting a McNabb deal, then he wins and the 'skins win too.

Word. Something heavily laden w/ incentives makes sense
