Maybe Arrington will take pay cut, a la Pennington-Coles, to make more room for Courtney Brown.

How does a player's age (Bruce Smith) and/or injury history (Courtney Brown) factor into 'the process'. To me it should be automatic. No consideration. That's the only reason I'm against drafting Erasmus James. Give me Roth or give me death.
The article in the post said that it was an incentive deal based on health. I agree, and think that it's an intelligent decision. Because we control our risk.

Risk mitigation is the key here. Lots of upside with this guy but we can't go selling the farm on him. I an relieved he didn't sign before he left. It show's we exhibited some type of restraint in our offer otherwise he'd have been running to the closest Check Into Cash to get an advance on the money.

Re: Courtney Brown - It's Either Washington or Denver

It's definitely an incentive contract they're talking about, like the one we gave to Walt Harris. The question is will Denver offer more GUARANTEED money than we will?

Redskins Pros
Arrington and his cousin Prioleau
Greg Blache is the best at maximizing DL talent
Better defensive ranking last year than the Broncos

Denver Pros
Winning track record recently
Better opportunity to start

I dunno, tough to call there. I think you guys are right, should come down to cold hard cash. I get the feeling the Skins are offering more cash than Denver but only as incentives. If Denver offers him more guaranteed money it's tough to say what he'll do, probably go with the Broncos. Who knows though, I guess we all wait till Monday!

I'd say that Denver isn't necessarily on a winning track. I'm very aware that they have consistently had a better record than us - I'm not saying that Washington offers a better track to success (though I think we're on the way up). Denver has been in dogfights every year to make the playoffs, and have had no real success there since elway retired.

Brud - we've been praying just to lose a dog fight and ALMOST make the playoffs.
