redskins = broke = cannot sign a big, long-term deal.

now, i'm not sure they would if they could right now due to the injuries, which is what the article is saying, but that whole point is (s)moot.

Orakpo counts something like 5 mil against this years cap. They could very easily sign Orakpo to a long term deal and actually have his cap number go down this year. The salary cap is not stopping a new deal for Orakpo.

Was thinking the same thing. Don't we have two NTs backing up Cofield?

That's right, Baker. If either of those guys can be effective/consistent Cofield as backup DE gives me some piece of mind. It's really about Jenkins stepping up though. I thought he looked hesitant too often last year.

Here's a relevant article:

Jackson will be welcomed 'with open arms' | Comcast SportsNet Washington

pretty big news if this is the case.

"Both Mike Shanahan and Jim Haslett have indicated that the team will give Jackson a shot once he is eligible to return. During a media availability just before the draft Shanahan said, “At the safety position, we lost [Brandon] Meriweather and Tanard Jackson last year and you are hoping that both guys will be back, will be back healthy.”

Asked about Jackson last week, Haslett said, “Obviously if we got Tanard back, you know that’s another bonus because he’s a heck of a football player. I don’t know where that stands with the NFL, but we’d welcome back with open arms.” "

strong statement and will be something to watch

I don't think it's too surprising, SS hinted that they would bring him back if he's cleared with the league.

Per the DE sitz, with both Cofield and Baker able to backup there I think we're in pretty good shape. Jenkins is still the X factor on the line as Bown and Cofield are solid.

only if you want to give him a backloaded/high bonus vinny type contract, which we've been steering away from lately.

Not at all. You only need to have the first year with a lower number. A lot of the contracts tend to have a lower first year salary anyways due to bonus money being paid early, even from Shanny and Allen. Look at Garcons contract. 2.1 mil base salary last year with a cap hit of 4.7 mil, 5.6 mil base salary this year with a cap hit of 8.2 mil. Most teams do it that way. They escalate the annual salary so that if they cut the player before they finish the contract, they are paying out less than if they had the annual salary stayed the same through every year.

Apparantly it does include blogs such as the Bog. I got a notice this morning when I tried to read an article on the Bog that I've already used my 20 free articles for the month.
