Re: Redskins: 2012 Off-Season-Free Agency/Trades

know what might be a good FA value for us?

WR meachem, WR Eddie Royal, OG Rachal, OLB -> ILB erin henderson

all could be in the cheap range (3mill or so a year) and provide some help. I don't want colston, and I'd like VJ, but not at a billion a year.

I don't see a great RT to sign in FA, and the only CB that'd push hall out of the way would be rogers or carr (i don't know finnegan)... at OG grubbs or nicks would be great too, but they're big money... nicks is probably worth it. tulloch would be okay at ILB, thomas at CB... there are a TON of very meh safeties, so we should grab 4 or hope 2 work out. meriweather probably has the most natural talent.

I know we always want to save money as a team, but if there's anybody who you can make an argument deserves to get paid, it's London Fletcher. Dude is the only consistent baller on this team, not once since he's been here do I remember him having a bad game, at least not on the scale of our other highly paid stars.

Can't blame the guy for looking to cash in on his last contract. That said I won't blame the FO for holding strong and not caving in to his demands.

Re: Redskins: 2012 Off-Season-Free Agency/Trades

I would love to keep London at the right price. Unfortunately i dont believe his price is in line with our price. Deserve has got nothing to do with it. Ask Peyton if past performance dictates future earnings. It doesnt, and it shouldnt. London is getting old, a smart organization is prepared to let him walk.

Actually, it does. Peyton will be getting serious guaranteed cash and a large contract, and all of it is predicated on past success, because right now with a mildly uncertain future that's all anybody has to go on.

I'm not saying give Fletch 10 million a year, but I do think 7 million a year is certainly reasonable for a player of his production. D.Hall makes 6 million a year, do you think he's worth it?

Fletcher is a prime example of a player you want to pattern your other players after. His pretty much textbook in ever since of the manner. And, I have seen nothing from his play that makes me think he's slowed down. If anybody deserves a nice contract, it's London Fletcher.

Peyton was release because of the 28 million, more than his health. The length of Fletch's contract is more important than the yearly cost.

If Peyton had been healthy and played the whole season last year, he would've been 28 million richer today. As far as the length goes, we know Fletch probably only has 3-4 seasons left. Give him a 3 year deal with an option for the 4th. I doubt he's looking for a 7 year deal or anything crazy like that.
