So Riley was willing to come back, as a starter. If he had been drafted and developed by a winning org, maybe he's willing to come back in the role that best fits him, and for less money. It's understandable. The Redskins didn't seem to have the option to bring him back under the terms I thought he deserved. It seemed to be a situation where you pay him to start, or he was going to explore other opportunities.

When the Redskins start to draft and develop a lot of Perry Riley's instead of just one, they'll be able to name their price on him. They're a couple years away still.
Where is the "loser's tax" on Riley? My argument above is the same whether we finished 13-3 or 3-13.

Sometimes, moves can be not good and not bad. This one just...is.
Who's saying he isn't being paid like a starter? He is our starter, and he has earned the right to be a starter on this team, and certainly 26-29 other teams in the league.

This is most definitely not a "just is" move.

Re: Perry Riley re-signs 3 yrs $13M

In the "context of the present" somewhere between 19 - 21 of players drafted in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 draft classes are still on the squad and likely to be so in 2014 (Using your 2 year window to judge drafts). Going back to 2010, that number becomes 21-23 out of 27.

In those classes we have already reupped two players (Riley, Robinson).

That's "the context of the present".

Robinson was a ERFA guy. He didn't have a say in his salary.

The losers tax is 3/13 for a guy who, ideally, wouldn't be making 3/13.

I use the word ideally because in reality, the Redskins took this as far as they could before getting the deal done, and then paid market value.

... but the Skins did, and the choice they made was to keep him. In a discussion based on "developing your own", that is kind of the point when relating to "the context of the present".

Maybe he makes the 51, maybe not. Bottom line, rather than simply cutting him loose they give him the chance for another year.

I think you know me well enough to know I'm not against re-signing your own. People who have losing arguments try to frame my arguments against them that way, but I'm not going to touch that nonsense.

To be a player development organization, you can't just have players you developed on your own roster. You have to win with them.

Free agency day is all about signing players to replace the guys who you didn't develop. So when the Redskins are active on a day like this, it's because they are admitting to you they haven't done a good job.

I'm not arguing they shouldn't sign free agents. I'm saying the next four years needs to focus on doing the development so they don't have to pay Perry Riley to start to get him to stay and Andre Roberts to take Aldrick's spot. In the meantime, you do what you have to do to win, and if that's pay Riley and Roberts, you do that.

Do it, and don't spin it like some organizational victory. Just go out and win.

So, they paid market value for a NFL starting ILB (who would be an immediate starter on at least 8-10 other teams), and, in doing so, retained a player who they drafted & developed, showed growth in their system and will be only 26 when the season starts.

Yup. I can see why you wouldn't call that a "good move".

The implication is that there is a performance gap between how they're treating him and how he's playing.

If Riley improves his level of play and is a quality starter for them, that's when he becomes a success for the player development arm of the team. If all you care about his the contract, you can put your checkmark up now. But the playing strong, consistent football still has to be proven.

Re: Perry Riley re-signs 3 yrs $13M

Riley just tweeted to Keenan Robinson that he was excited about lining up with him next season, I think that they are out of the ILB market until late in the draft or if a stud falls to them, Like Skov in the 3rd round or later.

I love this signing, keeping home grown talent on the team at a resonable price so he doesn't go somewhere else and become a stud (Pierce, Clark) and we fall in love wiht and overpriced free agent who sucks (Adam Archuleta, I am talking to you).

... and this is where we apparently disagree. His level of play got him the contract he would have received on the open market. In my opinion, he has shown himself already to be a quality starter and his level of pay reflects that and not a "performance gap". If he continues his current level or improves, the Skins come out ahead by any measure - both in player development and cap management.

If we paid market value, then by definition there is no "tax."

C'mon GTripp.

C'mon GTripp.
No, you're correct on this one.

The tax in this case isn't the money, it's the playing time that comes with the contract.

I was trying to be clear that I believed (and Joe Redskin believes, and you believe, and CRedskinsRule believes) that he would have gotten something similar on the market...but then he's just a free agent overpay instead of a "signing your own guy so now we're doing it right."

The thing is that his market value is affected by the fact that he's started for us the last two years, but he's had to start for us because we've had no one else. I am saying that on a lot of teams (and I am not disputing the 8-10 teams JR threw out) he wouldn't start and would be playing all the special teams because that's the best use of his abilities.

And I'm not going to say this again: I'm not saying paying market for a LB is a bad thing, even if the market's a little high on the player. I'm comfortable with it. It's just...a move. It's market value for a player. Happy for Perry. Not against this from the Redskins perspective. It sure seems like they're having to go above and beyond on a lot of these deals. Which is fine, too.

FA market value is almost always > the value of the player. Just a reality.

Market value is overpaying for performance. The market is inefficient. 32 teams know this.
