Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

I'm happy that Flecth is back. We still need to draft an inside linebacker, tho.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Whistler, many if not most board members here have a good grasp of the salary cap and how it works. Most got that way by reading explanations here. Restructures are ALWAYS player friendly. Nothing is special about our situation.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

I don't give a rats ass about pro bowls, but the people saying he is slowing down? Didn't he just get named to the All Pro team? Lead the league in total tackles, if that's slowing down then we should expect him to just be top five this year.

Good point.

Usually when we say so and so is slowing down, we're comparing him to Calvin Johnson or Patrick Willis.

Fletcher is not slowing down by any means. The proof of this is that he was the most productive linebacker(outside, middle, or inside) in the NFL last season. Age is nothing but a number. It's beyond me that people like to put so much emphasis on an athlete's age. Age doesn't mean a thing. George Foreman is the oldest heavyweight boxing champion of all time and he did it well into his 40s.

London Fletcher is just as good as anybody playing linebacker in the NFL today.

are you kidding me? he walked because we wouldn't pay like 1.5mill or something trivial...

then we signed archuletta to an awful contract, wasted a top 10 pick on landry (and gave him a big contract), sign AO to a giant contract... and this whole time he's been playing better (for less) than any of those guys.

If you waste $100mill trying to replace a guy, it's a pretty big loss.

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.

That's a damn fine post sir

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

fletch vomited into a mason jar for me, i keep it in my medicine cabinet for emergencies. he's the only redskin to ever do that for me. he's also the only redskin to ever be considered for darrell green blood transfusions, not sure if he was approved or not, just that he was being considered

i am very glad he is back for the next 2 seasons

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Im glad we got a deal done with London and I think 2 years is fine. Don't let age fool you 37yrs old is not old if you take care of your body and stay in shape year around. London has not had a major injury thus far in his career which has allowed him to play so many games at a high level. Good to have him backthe best free agent Synder has ever signed.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

All I'm saying is his chances of keeping up his level of play at 37-38 is 50/50. I'm not mad he's back. Hell I'm happy they signed him and gave him the raise he deserved. I would've just did it for one year and maybe given him 8 mil or so. Two years at 14 mil at that age? ... at that position? We'll see.

I'm glad that all are tickled that LF is back. All I've said is that at some point the skins have to move on and find another ILB and that it would be better to do it a year too soon thatn a year too late. LF was not going to get the same money anywhere else. Why the skins didn't wait until after June 1st and not over pay is a mystery to me.

There is nothing stopping them from drafting more ILBs this draft, and who better to set an example then Fletcher.

Why wait till Jun 1st?

One important aspect of signing now is that he will be at all team organized activities, and can help at a player to player level. That may be even more critical in this new CBA era with fewer team training days.

People always seem to forget Clark spent two years as a Giant first.

Imagine if the Redskins drafted that kid from Arizona State named Vontaze Burfict. If London Fletcher mentored him Burfict would indeed be the best inside LB in professional football one day.
