I can't imagine how hard it must be for a great football player who loves the game to retire. Many great players didn't know when they were done and played their final seasons on a team other than the one where they achieved their greatness. Art Monk (Jets) is one example.
Accessing brain information....yes

I sure hope not.

And if he does decide to play again next year, I hope the Redskins aren't dumb enough to sign him back if he's looking to be a starter.

Fletcher will either retire or be cut. Barnett will probably be in the mix to replace him next year.

Love me some LF but it is time to move one for both sides. His physical failings now outweigh his mental capabilities and emotional leadership on the field. Time to retire and get put up on the ring of honor.

I couldnt agree more. No team hangs on to over-the-hill players like the Skins do.

Are we resigning P Riley?

Fletch is our greatest FA signing ever. He didn't break the bank, and he gave many more solid years than any of us could have hoped for. That said, we are probably watching his final few games. I hope that he's added to the Ring of Honor early next season. In Joe Gibbs parlance, he was a true Redskin.

Is it me or does Riley just seem to be sort of an average player?

Riley is solid enough. Worth re-signing to a modest deal.

Brian Orakpo wants to return for “title shot” in Washington | ProFootballTalk

I'd like to see Orakpo stay. I don't see us letting him go, but we should bring in him competition. It'd be legit for us to have a career Redskin. I can't think of any career guys we've had in recent memory except Cooley.

The only people I can see starting and ending with the Skins are RG3, Alfmo, Kerrigan and Williams. But then again I can totally see us trading them away sometime in the future. We always seem to either trade away talent or let them test FA.

He's not someone who makes a lot of 'wow' plays but he's a solid player at an important position. Could do a whole lot worse and he's young, fast and never had health issues. Type of player we need to keep around.

Re: Do you think London Fletcher comes back next year?

Love London Fletcher and feel that when he does hang it up, he will have left a lot of blood, seat, and tears on that field. He put his heart into it - which is hard to do when you have played on so many bad teams/seasons. But, I think it's time for him to go. I will respect him a lot more if he does retire. He was a true Redskin in my book.

Re: Do you think London Fletcher comes back next year?

I don't think we should bring him back and I was checking out this information:
London Fletcher Contracts, Salaries, Cap Hits, & Transactions

I am not sure how that equates for 2014 but it looks like a lot. Perhaps Canuck or other cap specialist could drop some knowledge on me.

According to my sheets he'll be a $2.1M deadcap hit next year. Seems to coincide with the spotrac info.

Love the Fletch but no chance he comes back next year. He's been totally invisible this year, kinda scary actually.
