Apparently a significant amount more than what we offered him. I'd love to know what the offer was. He said he'd give the Skins a discount if it was close but that didn't appear to be the case this time.

Well there is only one way to find out. Not impressed going to the media like that. Im more interested what other teams would offer, I dont think its that big.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

We cant afford to dick around with guys like this this year.
Hes gotta give us a deal or he can shuffle off to Buffalo.

I wouldn't go full on honey badger just yet. (No Mathieu pun intended) The man said he would take less to stay, but for all we know we offered him the vet minimum. Need to wait until the numbers become available to pass judgement. I wouldn't want to play for the vet min either if I just went to the pro bowl.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

Alexander's last deal was 3 years 3.8 million. For a special teams ace/backup LB turning 30 this year I wouldn't offer him more than 1.5/yr at the most.

There is still not a salary floor teams have to meet. There is plenty of money to go around if teams want to spend it. Next year, there WILL be a floor and I would imagine this should result in pay bumps for alot of the middle tier players.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

Question: I know some people are saying let Lichtensteiger go and just go with LeRibieus but how did LeRibeous do in his limited action last year? Was he playing at a similar level or better?

He played well enough we could do without Lich, but IMO more OLine means more better. I always like a ton of line depth because linemen can go down, as we've seen in the past, and if you have no depth where are you? In the crapper.

I think we will have the advantage signing him.
Right now, I think the only guy on that list that's better than Davis is Tony G. Pita is pretty good too but I think he stays in Baltimore.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

We must give Alexander the salary he deserves. With him, Doughty, and Forbath, we had it made on special teams last season.

How much do you give a 30 year old backup LB? His last deal was 3 yrs $3.8M. I can't see topping that by very much.

With our cap situation the bottom line is some tough choices will have to be made.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

special teamers that don't score TDs don't get big money. i don't know why people think he should be getting 2M+ a year.

They had another good point on Szaban's show the other day.

As Redskins fans we know how valuable LA is as a special-teamer and team leader. He can also sub in at many different positions and is a positive force in the community.

But other teams won't see all that, they'll just see a 30-yr old special-teamer/backup LB. In other words, it's very likely no other team will value LA as highly as the Redskins and their fans do.
