There are still some holes to fill, mainly at LB, RT, and possibly a punter.

Re: Current Redskins Salary Cap Status - 2009

welcome panda. Taylor didnt want to work out with the team and this team is now rid of two guys who always felt they were too good to work out and practice with their team in the offseason.

We could have something big in the works (like a trade for a big name player), but I think if we did, we would have heard some rumblings by now. I'm personally hoping we wanted to get rid of someone who wasnt worth their keep. Now, weve got plenty of room to make several acquisitions to improve the quality of the depth on our team and maybe even pickup a starting DE or LB.

Re: Current Redskins Salary Cap Status - 2009

i thought they would be fine between jansen and heyer at rt. it would be nice to add a decent lb on the outside. i don't know why they cut frost last year.

They cut him for the same reason he was cut by Green Bay later on. He sucks.

Because he didn't want to work out, so he doen't have his heart in the game. Read, Cooley's blog. Bill Parcels knew something about Taylor. I for one leaped pretty high when he was signed last year after we lost Daniels and still give credit to Snyder and Co. for picking him up. His heart's not into it so he has to go. BYE BYE

Re: Current Redskins Salary Cap Status - 2009

I'm a bit confused by something. According to the information on this site, the Redskins are 12-13M under the cap.

However, this mornings RedskinsInsider blog had this to say,

There's also the cap issue. We're still waiting to hear from league sources about the Redskins' exact cap number, but Cerrato recently said the team only has a little flexibility to meet its remaining needs.
How can we have 12-13M in cap space, yet have "little flexibility"? It just doesnt make sense. Any thoughts?

I second that question. Unless they think T.O. is going to command big money, which he won't and should not.

I can only think of two possibilities:

1) The cap information here is incorrect (its my understanding the cap gurus here never had the actual contract information and were basing their numbers on how the skins "normally" structure deals).

2) The skins have "ear-marked" a certain amount of cap space for other purposes.

The cap info here is not official, but it's usually very close.

Blasphemy! :FIREdevil

One quick question to the cap gurus, you have Evans listed in your possible signings...since he signed with the 49ers are you guys assuming they'll pick up a DE at the same price?

It seemed reasonable to me, but i just had to mention it as a possibility. Considering the number of needs we have, it doesnt make sense for us to just be sitting on our butts and not doing anything to improve our team with that money now, especially considering we only have 2 draft picks that have a realistic possiblity to produce key contributors in 2009. There are still quite a few quality players out there - why arent we doing anything with the cap space?

Things are just not adding up.

How can we have 12-13M in cap space, yet have "little flexibility"? It just doesnt make sense. Any thoughts?
Fair question. It's likely because Vinny probably said "little flexibility" before they cut Jason Taylor. JLCs says "Cerrato recently said". It depends on how "recent" JLC's definition of recent is. If it was said before Taylor was cut, then it was true at the time. But now that he has been released, we have mad flexibility. And this makes sense, Vinny was trying to negotiate a restructure with Taylor and didn't expect him to balk at the workout bonus. He was thrown for a loop and then decided it was best to cut him.

When they released Taylor they went from having something like $3 million to having upwards of $11 million. That takes you from not much flexibility to lots of flexibility overnight.

As for the cap information on this site, trust me it's right. I like to think my MBA in Finance wasn't for naught. CC is quite an accountant himself, I've examined his stuff thoroughly and it's right on from my perspective. Further, there's another cap source out there who's also a strong accountant, and CC's numbers tie out to his.

We have to use estimates from time to time to develop cap hits, this is done when we don't have accurate sources for contract info. But those estimates are always in the ballpark. At least close enough to say with certainty that after releasing Jason Taylor the Skins have plenty of flexibility.
