Re: Current Redskins Salary Cap Status - 2009

And if there ever was a cap again, this deal would totally and monstrously screw us over.

There could still be other signings. This is a lot of space we're working with here.

Except because they are the Redskins, they'd structure it so he gets $20 million in 2009 and $20 million in 2010, both bonuses, fully guaranteed. The net cap result in 2009 is 4 million prorated SB plus his salary (likely 2-3 million). Albert gets 40 million to spend, the Skins put it on the books as six million.

Meanwhile, Tampa has it on the books as 40 million in 2009 (in this pie in the sky scenario).

Haynesworth sees it as the same money, and signs where he wants to play (in this case, here).
Ok i got it... how do we know big Al is partial to the B & G over Tampa?

I'd up the projected tenders a half million for Monty and Golston each. The 2nd round tender has been set at 1.5 million.

Don't know where I heard it, but I heard today that Suisham's 1.0 tender has been offered and accepted. I'll see if I can dig up a link.

Well, we can throw an extra 5 million in there for good measure...but only if we're unsure

BTW, that Tampa scenario is a total pie in the sky scenario. A 40 million roster bonus is totally unheard of. The larger point is this: if we let Hall test the market, there's no way Tampa could outbid us for Haynesworth. They simply don't have the market size to write a check in excess of 35 million tomorrow. Before this cap adjustment, we probably couldn't have done so legally, but that's all changed now.

I would agree wholeheartedly. There's no other explanation for why the Redskins would seek to clear so much space by restructuring Samuels, Carter, Randle El, and Griffin.

I think the Redskins front office new the cap would be going up to 127 because they have access to league wide revenue data and can easily project the cap number based on revenue sharing rules.

They cleared space beyond the cap limit boost through restructures. That was done purposely for one reason, landing a big fish or two.

I'm so confident in it that I'm almost ready to go buy an authentic Haynesworth jersey.

Re: Current Redskins Salary Cap Status - 2009

And, admittedly, the higher cap drives up the price for Haynesworth. So Schneeds' figure is probably a little low in my opinion, since 6/100 appears to be a reality. But if only 35 million gets guarenteed, it's only about 7.5 mil on the 2009 cap still.

Ass hat? A new phrase for me I guess. Ass clown maybe? U can also say he has rectal-cranial inversion, which is personally my favorite to use around the office.

Going to bed as to save a flight of stairs from DirtyLandry.

If I wake up to any form of Ola Kimrin news, your flight of stairs is mine.

this won't work. gauranteed money in a capless year counts fully in 2009, so that deal would count 26$mill in 2009.

we can still give him 35$mill SB and 100mill$, but his 2009 number (due to the 30% rule and various bonus clauses for capless years) is going to be about 12mill minimum. 4mill for hall is ridiculous low too, he won't come here for that, (cause with the 40% rule that means it'd be like a 5 year 24mill deal with 15mill SB which i think would be illegal as far as salary/SB ratio (thanks to deion)).

that still leaves us enough space to sign an OL FA of decent quality and hall, sign our rookies and our UFA/RFAs, and maybe even add a stopgap (1-1.5mill) LB.

taylor and springs are both going to have to go though if we want to sign two ~6mill FAs (hall and OL guy).

after all that the money will be REAL tight.

Well I'm not the missing link, but I can vouch for your Suisham comment. I heard the same thing

No top tier free agent is going to sign with Tampa, not one who wants a shot at a title anytime soon. The just blew up their defensive core and don't have a quaterback. It would take Haynesworth and his agent to be high off their asses to sign there.

Re: Current Redskins Salary Cap Status - 2009

I have no idea how the Redskins or WHY the redskins continue to rework contracts of older players (samuels, griffin, Randel el ect). all this does is just create problems down the road, over paying for over the hill talent. Hayneworth is going to get upwards of 12 to 15 million a year. We dont have the room to do this. The Post says we were still over the cap last week even with reworking contracts again. This crap is getting old. This is why we dont have money to sign decent depth to our team and why we continue to let quality players leave and sign players that dont do shit while they are here. We want to go after Canty from dallas??? He would fill the role of Evans....so why even go after him?? He is a great locker room guy, the guys really like and respect him. This to me is one of the typical Redskin errors.
