How will Gardner's situation pan out?

Does anyone else think that the Redskins are playing hardball with Gardner and will hold on to him into camp ala Travis Henry to wait for an injury to occur before dealing him? There's no reason that we haven't cut him by now, we could use the cap space plus if we didn't have any use for him we would have let him go months ago. Is there even a remote chance that 50/50 reports to camp and has to battle to make the team?

Yes I think that's exactly what they're doing. They'll hold on to him as long as possible, to see if any interest generates because of a camp injury. I doubt they'll ask him to report. No need to risk injury to him.

Re: How will Gardner's situation pan out?

My guess? Midway through training camp he will be traded for a 5th round draft pick to... the San Diego Chargers. He will not agree to a contract extension, prefering to play out the last year of his contract. He will catch about 50 balls for about 850 yards, and he will be shocked (SHOCKED!) to find that there is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Then he will sign an incentive-laden deal with the Eagles in 2006, and rarely make it off the bench. He will die penniless and insane, trying to play a phonograph record with a peanut.

There is a 50/50 chance! Just like his nickname!

Re: How will Gardner's situation pan out?

With him not being at the OTAs and minicamp, I wouldn't bet on him being there. He is not part of the offensive gameplan, so I can't see any reason he would play or WANT to play. Honestly, this thing has gone too far to incorporate him now. If he DID play AND try, he would just be a hired gun trying to get that paycheck for next year from another team.

Re: How will Gardner's situation pan out?

I like Rod and hate that he did not meet expectations we had for him. Someone will sign him and they may get a realy good deal. He can be an impact player in this league he just needs to work on his concentration and quite droping those easy passes. I would love to see him turn his career around as long as its not in or division.

Re: How will Gardner's situation pan out?

I won't say it was because of his work ethic. He stayed after many practices trying to get better. Apparently it just didn't work out.

No I woouldn't say that either. He needs to get a ssycho to work on his concentration like a goff pro uses for their concentration.

Re: How will Gardner's situation pan out?

Was their any discussion during the draft that a team would give a 4th rounder for him?

You are assuming, of course, that one of us was in the War Room?

No, I am assuming based on the things that I heard on the news that we were offered for him.

More importantly, the offers for a 4th rounder were contingent upon the idea he would renegotiate. He has shown no desire to do so, which made his trade difficult.

Ahhhhh, that's right. I couldn't remember why no deal was made, even after the WR market became unsaturated.
