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.

Yeah I can see that, he's more valuable to us than anywhere else, except maybe to Pittsburgh and Danny Smith. Still, nobody is going to break the bank on him, I think he'll stay as long as he gets a deal similar to his last one with a decent bump.

I can see a division rival wanting a pissed-off ST standout.

Easy to see why you didnt last round here. We have zero cap room but hoped we can sign the most sought-after secondary free agent.

We dont have a 1st Round pick but I hope we draft Dee Milliner

The Redskins can sign either one of those guys if they want to.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

Safety Tanard Jackson remains under contract to Redskins

I didn't realize that it was the policy for suspended players. I doubt our plans to find safeties would change but it does give us an alternative option if the plan A backfires.

Re: Redskins Free Agents

Couple of points on Zo I don't think wherever he goes he would be pissed off at the Redskins and definately not the fans.

Also the Steelers and the Giants will not over pay for Zo either.

Yeah look at Atlanta, they just opened up $18 mil in cap space by cutting three guys. Anything is possible, but just like a gothic kid that listens to Hawthorne Heights, it depends how deep you want to cut.

Yeah, but those 3 guys were some of their best. Like you said, it depends how deep you want to cut. I hope the Redskins aren't forced to dig that deep.

What else are the Skins going to do? Restructuring contracts is nothing more than a band aid that leads to future cap problems.

My guess is that the Skins, at a minimum, will cut DHall ($7.5M), Santana Moss ($3.7M), and Adam Carriker ($2.2M) and let London Fletcher retire ($2.7M), thus saving $16.1M against the cap.

I disagree with that. Abraham is older and is not playing with as much disruption as he used to. Michael "The Burner" Turner lost his middle name. He is slow and not very productive now. Daunta Robinson is 30 and is third best on the team behind Brent Grimes (who they are trying to resign) and Asante Samuel. They are by far not the best players on their team.
