If your contract expires then you cannot be signed until the start of FA. But if you get cut, you are free game for anyone to sign at any time.

You can sign any player who is not under contract. The thing about Free Agency is that those players with expiring contracts are still considered under contract until Mar 12th, which is why FA starts on the 12th. For players in the last season of their deal, thats when the contract is considered officially over. George Wilson was released, so was therefore no longer under contract and available to be signed by anyone.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

I know wide receiver isn't a priority, but Wes Welker playing for the Redskins? With RG3 throwing to him? Sign me up right now! If we could only convince him to take limited pay. I'm not hating on our current receiving corps, and I know we really need some good young DBs, but Wes Welker is Wes Welker.

I wouldnt mind it but his price vs his production might not be in our budget with a few other glaring needs.

Cool thanks for the clarification, I wasn't aware that it worked that way.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

Without a reduction in the salary cap penalty I am seeing a lot of doom and gloom about our offseason this year. We may add a couple of second and third tier players, but I am also more focused on keeping our own players that are possibly going to have to leave.

I want to keep our online I tact. Kory L and Polumbus for quality depth are targets for me. Young is a great FB and has gotten better every year (could see this guy having a long career as long as he is healthy).

Davis and Paulson need to be back.

Jackson and Lorenzo need to be here as they are extremely valuable to our team.

If we can't find a replacement I would bring Griffin back as well.

I can't believe we are 4mil over the cap, and have 15-16 guys coming off the roster.

I believe we will be fine. We have 7 draft picks and had the same penalties last season and were still able to land our top WR for the future. I can see us signing our key guys and picking up a secondary player or two. Olus aren't we trying to work out a long term deal with Mr. Orakpo right now. That might save us some money as well.

How do you propose we resign all these guys when we are $4 mil over the cap? There's about 6-8 guys I think most people are in agreement we want back. I don't see how it's possible as things sit now.

Assuming we don't get any cap space back we'll definitely have to make some tough decisions. It could mean letting someone like Davis get away I'm afraid.

Honestly I'd rather have rak over Fred if it was to come to that.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

Like a few have said before, I think the Skins will allow Fred Davis to test the market. They aren't going to give him top dollar, and truthfully I doubt he gets it on the open market either. We showed last year the team did fine without him.
