4 years 31 million for Lynch. Shouldn't be in the Redskins thread though.

Well lets put it this way. The Skins paid what seemed to be double that for the same production from Portis.

I wouldn't be surprised if Vincent Jackson wants to re-sign with the Chargers, but yet wants to know for sure how many other NFL teams are willing to pay him more money than San Diego for his services. I'm sure Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen have their sights on Jackson as well as Garcon, and Colston as well.

I had a dream we signed Jarvis Green. That was weird because everyone called it the greatest signing in history.

I'd be surprised if VJax is in SD next year.

NFL.com news: Browns, Redskins reportedly have limits in RG3 chase

Looks like Skins and Rams both want this settled before FA.

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

To me it seems as though this deal will wait until draft day or at least until some moves are made in FA to settle the field a little more. The Skins and the Browns have made their pre FA offers and the Rams have yet to accept any of them. This will play out later on down the road.

Leverage. That's why. Once free agency hits, teams are going to come down from that NFL combine high and start thinking clearly. They'll go out and get somebody free agency and most likely resort to plan B provided that the Rams have turned down their initial offer. So what started out as a potential bidding war, ends up a one man party.


Dolphins offer X package. If they are turned down, they go onto plan B of Tannehill/FA veteran.

Browns offer Y package. If Rams turn them down, they go onto plan B of Flynn and keep picks.


Redskins offer Z package. If Rams turn them down, they go onto plan B of Manning/Cousins.

(I'm using the players above as examples, you can fill in your choice of person for each of the team provided)

So you can see how quickly your investment(draft pick) is devalued come free agency time. Teams aren't going to sit around and wait till the draft, and by then they'll have already moved on. Smoots already said he heard the Dolphins were out of the running.

The team that stands the most to gain in all this is the Vikings.

I just explained why. What I wrote is the main reason why the Rams are better off trading the pick the exact moment of free agency. Come draft time, I imagine the teams looking for that draft pick will have already moved onto their second option. That would leave the Rams holding the bag. The only way that pick holds its value during free agency is if a team does absolutely nothing in regards to acquiring a QB.

That said, I imagine teams will be contacting the Vikings next to get a better deal.
