Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

Knowing how the Redskins structured Carriker's deal in the first place, I'm 99% confident he took the shaft to stay in Washington. You see "mutual" options in baseball, but almost never in football. But in Carriker's contract, he had a buyback option for this season (the team of course has an option with every player every season because contracts are non-guaranteed).

In baseball, mutual options are almost ALWAYS contract-enders because one side or the other is going to feel undervalued every year. So someone is going to terminate the contract.

Carriker was always unlikely to be back, so he probably had to accept a significant pay reduction with no guarantee of being a Redskin beyond 2013. I can't help but think he'll probably regret his decision to stay in a year. Then again, the FA market is going to be incredibly soft for Carriker types, so who knows?

Santana Moss on the other hand has some leverage. He's got a date with free agency in a year, a large base salary, and a team that feels like it's losing something on the field by releasing him. The Redskins are going to have to make a couple concessions to keep him in the fold (i.e. guaranteed money, an extension of at least one season). Moss is in a good spot, he won't be getting the shaft. But I doubt he wants to hit free agency at 33. The market won't be kind.

But back to AC, what a team guy. He knows he fits here, he knows we're a good team, he knows we just got a BS cap penalty and that since he didn't play last year its in the teams and his best interest to take less money this year and keep the last couple years of his deal the same. Great guy, glad he's back.
It was his quad right near the knee, probably why he was holding it.

I agree, good move being able to keep him on board.

and BTW - Thank God the Brandon Banks experiment is over. I wish him no ill will but, damn, am I glad he is gone.
As recently as the Cowboys game on Thanksgiving, Brandon Banks, Niles Paul, and Tyler Polumbus were major cogs in our offense.

Just saying, there was a reason I didn't entirely buy the playoff push at that point

By the time of RG3's injury, Paul was buried on the depth chart and Banks was a healthy inactive.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

So where are we getting the money to for all of these deal? No way a cut and two restructures are enough to make up the difference... Have to assume more is coming.

Dan Graziano ‏@espn_nfceast
RT @Rich_Campbell: DE Adam Carriker, via text, says his restructured deal lasts through 2015, just as his old one did.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

Here's what I am seeing:

Offense coming back intact and set for another two years (Moss, Paulsen, Young, K-Lich). Still waiting on Davis, however,

Defense still has huge holes in the backfield which have gotten bigger (he may have sucked, but Hall was still our starter and needs to be replaced). Meanwhile, those depth signings we can do something about are being addressed (Carriker) and retained (Fletcher).

So far, so good.

I have a feeling that they find a way to bring him back. I highly doubt he commands big dollars on the open market. His value is here.

He's unlikely to come back, plus he wasn't ranked that well last year. He also has a leg injury he's recovering from too. Not good.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

I'm glad to see us keeping our own guys, and glad they are working with the FO to make it happen. I know this means less activity in FA, but between the penalty, and just better depth drafting, I think our team comes out stronger overall from this year.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013

Did Hall get released Matty put up the link on the side and Granzio refrenced it in his blog but haven't seen it in my normal spots. Any official word?

Edit:
nevermind i guess DeAngelo Hall is Redskins' first salary cap casualty - Washington Times
