He has to be. There are very few ways to put a roster together next year unless Hall is either gone or making less than $2.0 million. He'll either get a gigantic paycut or will hit the road.

Yet is the keyword. I'm just trying to get the thank you cards and baskets prepped.

By the way, I think that the Paulsen and Young signings are the signal that we've given up the cap penalty fight. All along they've been telling agents to sit tight while they fought the penalty. Well agents clearly aren't sitting tight now that a few players are signing. It's over, time to take the medicine and gear up for player investment next season.

Spot on.

Re: Hard Decisions: The solution to the $18MM offseason puzzle

yeah, if we're taking the hit, we should go young and cheap (in general). no sense in paying hall 8mill when he's getting older and we already know he can't play. I'd rather have a midlevel replacement + young + paulsen + lorenzo.

He will prolly get between 5-7 million a year somewhere else, no way he signs here for under 5. I just can't see it. His play was VERY good the last 9-10 games of the season. He's gonna get his money. His contract looks too difficult to restructure with what we need, and the amount we have.

Next man up.
If he gets 5M or more/year I would be shocked. In addition to being old and average at best, the market is flooded with DB's on the backside of their prime. He would not even be the best CB on the market.

Re: Hard Decisions: The solution to the $18MM offseason puzzle

I think he will get a 3 year deal around 13-17 mil total, with about 9 guaranteed.

And part of the reason that he got burnt so much last year is because of the horrid safety play the first 10-12 games last year. You put just an average guy back there at both safety positions, and Hall wouldn't have that statistical distinction. I wonder what his rank was the year before last in the same department, when our safeties weren't good, but they weren't as bad as this past years.

I do think that is a very unfair statistic on Halls part. Like it or not, he was our best defensive back, and has been ever since he has been here. I hope he takes a huge paycut, and we can get him down to around 4.0 mil a year, maybe 4.5. But I doubt that will happen.

I wouldn't be upset about that either, but I also doubt that will happen.

IMO Josh Wilson is our best DB. He played under the same conditions as Hall yet did not give up the gobs of yardage that Hall did.

#Redskins will not partner with the NFLPA. Skins just want cap back, NFLPA wants to prove collusion to grab millions in damages.

Most likely won't partner, but I took it to mean they would be willing to tell whoever they did not agree to the "gentleman's agreement" if its needed for the law suit. Just in case the NFL tries the same BS again that everyone agreed which is why they punished.

What baffles me is a gentleman's agreement is just that nothing more, its usually not something you can hold someone to or in this case punish someone for. Otherwise they would have put it to paper all the owners would have signed it and it would have fallen into contract law. You can't have a gentleman's agreement to break the law......that's called conspiracy.

I say file the suit. Name the NFLPA as a witness. Make the NFL sweat over what's going to come out, what will the Skins say about the "agreement". And will the Feds get involved if unwanted info gets out?

Maybe then the other owners will concede and give back the CAP space so we can drop the suit.

Besides the NFL agreed to the contracts when they should ha e denied them.
