IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

Will teams be able to simply drop a player without any sort of retribution? Can you dump big salaries for no penelty?

Re: IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

I think the more important question, for me at least, is will they strike or not play football in the coming seasons?

Without the cap teams will be able to act freeley without any cap penalties what so ever. This means any additions or subtractions will not cost the teams. Which, if Danny has his say, will definately benefit the Redskins. He will go out and add any player out there. And, as seen many times before, players will come to Washington before anyone else based solely on the contracts he offers. This may work in our favor, but I dont think its the best thing to do for long term effects. We all saw how disfunctional we were in 2000 with all the big name guys we brought in to buy a superbowl.

there wouldn't be a strike. The players will make more money without the cap than with it. It will be interesting to see how this would effect the following year if the agreement is signed and the cap would go back in place the following year.

The redskins will make the yankees look like pikers with all the high priced talent they will sign. Not having a CBA would be the best thing that could happen for the redskins because they would outspend every team in the nfl and likely buy their way to a championship.

Re: IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

In an uncapped NFL, there would be fewer free agents because players would not be eligible for free agency until after 6 years in the league, as opposed to the current 4.

Re: IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

As I have said in all of my post, the Redskins have been setting up their contracts for the uncapped year. All of our big contracts have huge numbers for the uncapped year. Danny boy has been playing this card from day 1. We will be in great position for that year and years to come. We have constantly outpaced the league in dollars from wise decisions. Now some of our signnings have not panned out but we are a finacial model for success. HEnce the reason that Upshaw wants a piece of the revenues that Danny has added to.

Re: IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

As dumb as this may sound, you can all of the talent in the world and still not win it all. Look at the Yankees. How did they lose this year. And with our luck we could have all the talent and still lose.

Re: IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

Is this actually something that is being talked about happening for next year?

Or just a what-if scenario?

Re: IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

As much as I hate the yankees and the idea of a no limit signing frenzy it is nice to be a fan of the team that would benefit most from it. I think that even with danny boy ready to throw money out to any player who has a good year we still would benefit most by doing something gibbs would love, keeping our veteran free agents or "core redskins" without suffering at other positions. Also football is different than baseball in the sense that 1 player can make a difference because they would be on the field more than just 4 or 5 at bats.
