Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

Does Eric Winston come off as an arrogant prick to anyone else but me?

Until Winfield makes up his mind we are kind of in limbo.

It's not a difficult fix in the least. It requires a restructure or two

He wants 3-4M a year. I guess we don't think that's reasonable. Apparently several other teams agree.

We've restructured all the people we basically can. Also, some of these contracts you don't want to restructure because you have no intention of that player being around in the years to come. Shanny has already said he didn't want to get into the practice of screwing the future by pushing money into the future.

Since we're only $30,000 under the cap, obviously some sort of moves will need to be made.

Stand corrected. We are only 30k under the cap, not $600k.

Indeed we will.

I agree. Its not just that we're cash-strapped. Other teams that actually have tons of cap room arent willing to spend that much on him either.

The Redskins are left with six contracts that they can restructure that can create some significant cap savings—Williams, Pierre Garçon, Barry Cofield, Stephen Bowen, Chris Chester, and Will Mont.

A lot of the teams that have a ton of cap room are cheap and dont really sign anyone.

Well after beginning of the offseason, I don't think we can call Dolphins cheap anymore. They brought Winston in for a visit and didn't even extend an offer before he left. I used to want Winston too because of his history with Kyle in Houston, until now. Redskins obviously don't want him, then why should we?

Plus they could give new deals to Wilson and Orakpo to free up more room. They definitely have some options.

Wilsons new deal would need to involve him leaving the team. Orakpo needs to stay healthy and prove himself. Right now, he thinks he's an elite talent and there's no way we could justify extend him as such. Besides, he's only scheduled to make 5MM this year. I cant fathom any extension that would result in a lower cap number.

I was just tossing out possibilities, not saying I'm in favor of either.

Rak's number is $5M, it would be easy to drop that down quite a bit with a new deal.
