Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

It looks like London Fletcher got the sort of deal he was looking for. If the Redskins and Fletcher were unable to come to an agreement, then sending a a draft pick to the Jets for Bart Scott would not have been a bad move to make. But fortunately it didn't come down to that. Fletcher has signed and the Redskins and Mike Shanahan accomplished one of the many things that was a goal in the offseason.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

i hope $12mill is in the 3rd year that we never have to pay. that seems like a lot for a 37 year old.

Forget Fletcher's age. I'm glad he got the kind of deal that he was hoping for. The fact of the matter is I would rather have Fletcher than any of the rookie linebackers entering the draft in 12 days. Fletcher, despite being 36 years old, has not slowed down at all. No one who has watched every game for the past five seasons can say Fletcher is any different than he was when he was a rookie linebacker for the Rams. The guy is pure gold to the Redskin defense.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Glad they signed Fletch but if that moneys correct then I think they overpaid.I dont see any other team in the league handing out that kind of money to a linebacker that old.3-5 million a yr seems more like it.
As far as Gtripp's post,Ive never viewed them as negative,just realistic.
While Fletcher has started every game,he was hurt last yr but he still made it on the field,maybe thats what Gtripp is refering to when he says hobbled.Aga catches up to you quick and its not as easy to heal from those injuries.

Way too much! If those numbers are correct the skins have hog tied themselves, and will have to cut Cooley and others to make cap room. They don't even have the rookie pool available if that's the case.

1. No thanks. he's 36/37, that's old and makes big money a much bigger risk.

2. I'm not. If those numbers are right that's too much. I'm a fan of the team first.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Is there a more dependable middle linebacker in the NFL than London Fletcher? Emphatically no. The guy shows up every day, every week and puts in work. Bottom line, our defense is much better with Fletcher than it is without him.

Secondly, we need to get over the "did we overpay" crap. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. This is the NFL, not Dairy Queen. I distinctly remember years ago, some of you on this board were bitching and moaning, and rightfully so, when the 'Skins would let guys like Antonio Pierce and Ryan Clark walk. Now the organization displays some actual loyalty, keep one of our own and ante up at the same time, some folks still ain't happy.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Serious question for those that think we overpaid. Someone please explain to me, what's "too much" for a player Fletcher's caliber on and off the field? And how do you quantify the value of said replacement at the same position and his impact on the team?

I agree, we're paying for more than his on-field performance too. He is a key leader & mgmt. needs to show that it will reward players that go above & beyond the call of duty. Fletcher has always done that. This signing is about more than simple 'production' that shows up in stats. Shanny needs LF to continue to instill his values & work ethic on the team.

It's nice to be able to say that a guy deserves his contract. London Fletcher definitely deserved to get this deal & hopefully will end his career in B&G.
