Re: How will Gardner's situation pan out?

Aprius, Gardner has been excused from every team activity this offseason...Sorry, but he will not be a Redskin in the 2005 season!

I think they would like to keep him through part of training camp in hopes of a trade, but that means they will have to find another way to generate the cap room needed to sign the two first round draft picks. As soon as their contract negotiations heat up, expect him to be cut loose.

I think the Dolphins pony’d up Adewale Ogunleye for Marty Booker (in the process getting fleeced) because David Boston went down with an ACL tear. I would never wish injury on anyone (with the exception of Cunningham during his heyday w/ the Eagles) but I wouldn't be surprised if we can jostle for a player-for-player trade if a WR goes injured during TC.
This was my thought exactly. We can wait all the way till the end of preaseason and then cut him if a trade is not available. The Bears got a great deal last year for a player very similar to Gardner (Booker)

Matty don't you think this would be a wise tact to take? Its not Madden style just typical Snyder style. Its a business.

like SKINSROCK has all ready stated, the skins can't wait until the end of traning camp to cut gardner, they will need to cut him to gain his 2 mil. cap help in order to sign rogers , cambel and some other rookies.

Re: How will Gardner's situation pan out?

Here's a blurb about Gardner from Lenny P.'s latest tip sheet

Quote:
One personnel director from an AFC team still seeking to upgrade at the No. 2 wide receiver spot before camp said he will definitely consider Rod Gardner in free agency once the Washington Redskins decide to release the former first-rounder. But he also said he has recently reviewed videotape of a few young wide receivers for whom he would consider trading. At the top of the list of young pass-catchers he might pursue in a deal is two-year veteran Doug Gabriel of the Oakland Raiders.
