London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

Don't see him going anywhere, but interesting read nonetheless

If we let him go, which I don't think we will, it would have a beyond Antoino Pierce like effect on productivity

I agree, but I've heard the Eagles are interested in him.

That would break my heart.

I think London will stay, I wouldnt be mad at him if he ended up leaving to go to a team where he thinks he can get another crack at a Super Bowl Ring soon... I mean he's gotta fall off at some point...

THat being said, I really hope he stays in DC. One of the best guys on the team right now.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

London's camp has been hinting at their dissatisfaction with the contract talks for a while now. I think the real issue was the lack of seriousness of talks during the season. I don't think he WILL leave, but I do think the FO has rubbed him the wrong way.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

That writer needs to check his facts, Cullen Jenkins signed with the Eagles. As far as Fletch goes though, I want him back, absolutely. I wish a deal had been done by now but I think this FO knows how big of a priority he is. At least I hope so. If it gets to the point where he signs with another team, this FO deserves all criticism it gets.

Well he's got a new camp now. Fired his agent, according to Jason La Canfora and others

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

GW is in St. Louis. Fletcher has followed him just about his whole career. I wouldn't be surprised if he looks that way if things don't work out here.

But I think they'll work out here. We've got a ton of cap space, there's no reason we don't get it done with him.

Yeah I just saw that. London is playing hardball with the Redskins right now, which I don't think they (or anyone) anticipated.

A lot of time for this to get done still, but from Fletcher's perspective, the Redskins had years on years to give him security in exchange for a discount, and they wanted (justifiably) to make sure his body would hold up.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

And I'll give the Redskins some credit: this must be a frustrating situation and they have at no point gone public with any of their frustrations.

I still want to see the results though. For every bit of praise that Bruce Allen deserves for being great at writing contracts, I don't know if he'd ever get a free pass on Fletcher going elsewhere and having even just one last strong season.

Are we really that desperate that we're calling a 36 year old LB on a 5-11 team irreplacable? As much as I like Fletch, we need to start looking in another direction. Let's get another young guy in there that can go with Riley for the next several years.

He's truly the only good consistent player on this team. Sign him. Give him what he wants he deserves it.
