Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

Hey until I hear inks hit the paper I don't wanna get too down, but never the less a little unnerving. 6 years at $26 million isn't really all too unreasonable or anything. If you really think about what some other players are getting paid.

With a $6.5 million dollar bonus I would figure that the cap number for this year wouldn't be too unreasonable either, but maybe someone can tell me what kind of cap money that would take up this year...

In my defense though If we cant keep Pierce then I thing that we should draft a LB.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

If Pierce leaves without given us a shot at matching the deal fcuk him. He said that he wanted to be a redskin and he would give us a shot at matching so if he doesn't he isn't worth the time. Barrow would give us time to find a solid replacement plus Clinton Smith could be the next Pierce for all we know. Don't rule out Danny goin after Hartwell or Bell though.

Yeah he's unrestricted, but he said recently that he would give the Skins a chance to match any offers. We'll see if he holds true to that, or maybe more importantly, will the Skins consider matching if they are indeed given that chance?

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

Skins should match. This is chump change money and he is worth it. I bet the Giant contract is back loaded. The real question is how good will he be? In two to three years he might command 15+ million signing bonus.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

As a theoretical question, assuming the money is essentially the same, would you rather have Rolle and Pierce or Smoot and Hartwell?

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

I think Pierce will give the Skins a chance to match. He has shown loyalty to the club in the past, such as playing for a less lucrative deal than what other teams were offering last year.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

Could be that Pierce has already given the Skins the opportunity to match, and they decided it didn't fit their salary cap projections for the next few years. I doubt Pierce would totally forsake Williams, not to mention Snyder's checkbook. Barrow's supposedly going to be ready to practice during the offseason camps, and they've re-signed their young backups, so maybe throwing a lot of money at Pierce doesn't make sense, given those factors.

Theoretically I would rather have pierce and smoot, but I would rather let go of pierce than smoot

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

I saw we let Pierce go. He is a good player, but he can be replace. Part of his success was because of the system. Barrow should be able to replace him if he's healthy. I think we MUST resign Smoot. He is a rising star who really effects what GW can do on defense. Plus i think we can draft a good young MLB in the third round and have in ready to play in one year.

Continuity is always a better option. Getting up to speed takes time. You can't just throw someone in and expect them to perform from the get go. I'd rather keep Pierce and Smoot.
