I think Mitchell qualifies for the "Veteran Cap Exemption", so he only counts $480K against the cap ($455K salary + $25K bonus). I also think the Skins will keep him.

I think we might do something a bit suprising on draft day. No idea what, but with the way skins offseasons go, we'll do something crazy.

I don't like the idea of dealing Smoot, either. The depth at cornerback is just too tenuous, due to the injury status of Springs, Harris and Brown. Williams' defensive scheme is going to rely heavily on tight coverage by the corners, and Smoot and Springs are really the only two corners on this roster that I would feel even remotely comfortable putting on an island.

If the Skins are eyeing D'Angelo Hall, and can obtain a pick high enough to grab him by trading Smoot and Trotter, then that might be a move worth making, as Smoot will certainly be looking for big bucks next year. Hall is the only rookie corner I would feel comfortable with as a replacement for Smoot-- maybe Dunta Robinson. But Hall has been projected going as high as #7, so even Smoot and Trotter might not be enough to get that high of a pick-- in this draft, at least.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if that cap exemption applied to his release as well.

Is there hope that Smoot will be a redskin next season??? I think he is a true skin, a vocal leader, tough player (played through multple injuires), and a fan favorite, he even signed with rosenhouse (spelling?) I believe making it seem that he wants to stay here.

I cant say I would be anything less than EXTREMLEY Dissapointed if we dont keep smoot after next season. I really think thats a guy that we have to lock up.

i agree 100%. i'd only trade smoot if we could get d'angelo hall or atleast dunta robinson. our 2nd next year and trotter and smoot might be enough to pull this trade off with someone like atlanta, the texans, or the lions who tried to get smoot the most last year. it might require another future pick though. i can't wait to see what suprises this weekend holds for us skins fans and i wouldn't put anything past the fo to possibly make a big splash.

I think trading Smoot would be foolish at this point. Springs has a nasty habit of getting hurt and then who would our #1 CB be? A rookie? Nah, we're pretty much forced to keep Smoot. Maybe we could put Gardner in his place in the above trade scenarios...

Unless we receive an incredible offer for Smoot I don't see the Skins dealing him. Especially with Bailey gone, Smoot became that much more valuable to the team.

Offiss- yoiur "bag of balls" for Trotter comment cracked me up!
I agree with Mattyk- We are too thin at corner to consider trading Smoot- Springs has an injury history, and no matter how good rookie corners are, they are still rookie corners. They're gonna get burned- it's just part of the growing process.
I'm torn betweent the Skins sitting tight and just taking one of the Canes (Taylor, KWII or Wilfork) or doing that and also making a draft day splash with a trade involving Trotter and Gardner (the only two players of value- ok Offiss- questionable value- who I think we can part with) to get another first round pick....

As far as the Barrow signing, which I think was the point of this thread....

I love his attitude and intesity. He still has a few solid years left and is a great pickup. Good job FO!!

I am concerned that Dan "never met an offensive player I did not want to draft" Snyder and Bag o Doughnuts Cerrato signed Barrow to make drafting KWII look better. Now they can say they did not disregard the defense. Although this still leaves a big whole at the safety position if we draft KWII.

u spelled hole wrong...and Barrow is going to be a beast. hes gonna plug the RIGHT holes, unlike Trotter. I can remember FOX playin replays when the opponent would bust a big run up the middle. It would be Trotter hittin the wrong hole, thats something that Barrow will improve on.

Question Why don't we use our CASH to get those 2004 draft picks?

Given that Redskins cash_flow is so strong, -- why don't we package Trotter / Gardner with a bundle of cash and swap them for 2004 -- 2nd/3rd round draft picks _?

The FO should be more creative in using their cash to get draft picks or players.
