Come on Samuels, rework the deal so we can keep you and get KWII and Taylor.

Restructuring without an extension does nothing for us. There's too much accumulated signing bonus remaining on his contract. An extension would be the only way to get short-term cap relief, by pushing more money to future years.

The extension would have to have a small signing bonus though. It would have to give him the 20 million he should get in the next two years, over 4 or 5. If we give him another big deal we'll be in the same cap hell down the road again. We're going to have to take a big hit when we cut Brunell in two or three years to.

Let me remind all of you again that I don't read minds so I can't be positive about why Samuels has not reworked his deal.

I SUSPECT that he has lost some measure of faith in the team to come up with the money in his "big payoff" years when they actually come due. He has already redone his deal at least once - and maybe twice - with some minor tweaking to let the Skins survive previous cap problems. He has seen teammates not get the big money years at the ends of their deals. He has seen one teammate with an incentive loaded deal pushed back to a point where it is far less likely that he will earn those incentives. And so he says to himself, why do this again? Why not take the money that "they" owe "me"?

From his perspective, he is going to have to take a really low salary number this year and maybe next in order to get a bonus that makes his deal cap friendly. That means he is deferring the current salary AND the potential signing bonus he would get just by playing out his deal and going into the open market. If you add his salaries together and then add in a potential signing bonus for a solid OT who may not make the Hall of Fame but who can play at the NFL level, you are probably in the range of a $15-18M signing bonus right now. And to make that deal cap friendly, he has to make that at least a 6 year deal and maybe 8.

And maybe he's not ready to commit to that just yet - since maybe he thinks the Redskins aren't committed to him just yet.

I do think Samuels deserves another chance. Hes already a proven talent, that had two bad years under different coaching systems. our team has been through a lot with all of these different coachs and i think we should think twice before lettign anyone go. Mabye even Trotter... That isnt meant to start another Trotter thread, we all knwo he isnt the best in coverage, but we did have coachs that played him in coverage when he shouldnt have been. A good coach knows where his strengts are and plays to them. Ive seen Lavar play coverage and hes broken up a bunch of passes, it should have been his job more than Trotters. Trotter should have been a blitzer
