They must have given him more guaranteed money early in the deal, we couldn't have lost him for $.3M

Re: Smoot signs with the Vikings

The Redskins right now are in indefesible clusterfu*k...

There is not one person that could logically defend the past week of colossal blunders. They lost two players that wanted to be here becasue they were busy fighting with a cry baby WR. They should have told him to shut his mouth and dealt with him after more important matters were finished. Or simply took the 5 mil he was offering and shown him the door. Instead they traded him for an average player and took a 6 million dollar cap hit in the process which contributed to losing two players who are better than Coles or Moss. Brilliant...just brilliant.

Re: Smoot signs with the Vikings

I really don't think it came down to less than a million in the signing bonus, the deal must be structured so more money is in the first few years. Snyder is notorious for backloading his deals, so that's probably what it came down to.

Re: Smoot signs with the Vikings

Losing Pierce hurt me more simply because I thought we stood a better shot at bringing him back, losing Smoot shouldn't come as a big surprise.

Agreed. But there was still some part of me that felt different the last week or so, that we might be able to get him back. What really hurts is that its not too much more money in Minnesota.

Re: Smoot signs with the Vikings

im happy for it, lets bring on wilds and harris. ive been wanting to see rufus brown step up as well. i want to trade down in the draft and get jerome mathis and justin tuck or maybe if he's taken, matt roth. i want some speedy gamebreakers on offense and speedy ends on D. i trust williams will have another great D again with what we got as far as our back seven.

Yeah, but Smoot just seems different....a young loudmouth that won people's respect by playing hard and being tough, especially for his size....not to mention the "I hate Dallas" types of comments...
As I said in the other thread, this sucks.
