yeah i hope your right matt, and i hope he lowers his asking price to the minimum because he has never proved that he's worth the contract he got from the browns.

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

browns are offering 2mill for one year... so we'd have to match that... greg williams has the same agent though, and we've got a much better defense to showcase him in...

Courtney Brown is ALWAYS hurt, plus he sucks. Don't be fooled.

Same with Plaxico: he's got a terrible attitude, and is a locker room cancer.

I hope we just keep a low profile, draft some good young players, and let Gibbs and Williams do their motivational magic on young, hardworking, unproven players who want to win.

I think that if we could get Brown he would be a good fit for rotation. That way he would stay healthy for the whole season and keep our DE's fresh for the whole game. Also maybe getting him back with LaVar may spark something and Brown might become more productive.

According to the Washington Post we are interested in Brown but will have to pay him $2m per season cos Cleveland are leaving an offer like that for him even after he is cut.

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

I wouldn't be interested in him at that price since he's had a history of spending more time on the bench hurt than anything. I agree with everyone else at this point: league minimum with incentives- let him earn a big paycheck. Hell that's actually not a bad idea for the entire NFL- players should play to earn their paycheck- BRILLIANT!

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

When I heard he was going to be cut, I immediately thought it would be a good signing for us if we could get him relatively cheap. We have a good scheme, a great d-coordinator... It could be a good gamble on a player with a big upside...

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

Anyone not think he would command a HUGE contract? I WOULD love the scenario of signing him to a short minimal contract, NOT a one-year deal.

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

Apparently, the Browns are keeping their current (rejected) offer on the table - which is a $2 million average. We would have to exceed that number, one would imagine.

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

And we have just over 2 mil in cap room (assuming Gardner's departure)??

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

He could really benefit from a change in scenery. He doesn't have much leverage when it comes to contract negotiations, he should come relatively cheap.

Blache worked wonders for our D-lineman last year, hopefully Brown will consider that when looking for a place to play.

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

That's excellent to hear he doesn't have any leverage. I would just like to sign him for more than a one-year deal, even though I would think that is what he would want.

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

Four year deal with minimum base salaries this year and next with a 4 mil signing bonus works decent. something like below might do it. if he stays healthy then one assumes he would be productive. this type of money for a productive guy would be great, this is not bad contract. if he is not healthy it is no big deal to cut him in 2007.

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

Maybe make the final two years voidable by him based on playing time and the final two roster bonuses playing time based. Throws him a bone so that if he plays well and stays healthy he can get paid and it helps us mitigate his injury risk. Seems fair to me. Hell if he stays in average health then it is a deal for sure. Fire up Redksin 1 Danny boy. Make it happen.

Re: Plax, Brown, and the draft, oh the possibilities

I am guessing he won't want anything more than a 1 or 2 year deal though.
