Re: Redskins 2012 Salary Cap Status

CC, what do you know about Cedric Griffin's deal, in terms of the percentage of base salary vs. the percentage of incentives.

Usually takes a few days to make it from the press to NFLPA's site. However the bigger problem is getting access to NFLPA at all. They shut down the site hard a while back so it's difficult to get access these days. My account was shut out too, but as SS always says, "I have my sources".

Well it's a 1-year $2.5M deal. All sources seem to agree with this.

But his actual salary is only $1.25M. So my guess is they gave him half in salary and half as a roster bonus/LTBE incentives etc. It all gets treated the same for cap purposes anyways.

Re: Redskins 2012 Salary Cap Status

I just figured if there was a player on the roster who had a NLTBE incentive in his contract, it'd be him.

Mara says Redskins, Cowboys are lucky they didn’t lose draft picks | ProFootballTalk


IMO Mara comes across as a arrogant A#S. Once again IMO the fact that the NFL office is in NY gives him to much influence on the Commissioner.

Re: Redskins 2012 Salary Cap Status

I think I may have figured out the logical reason for how we structured the Carriker contract:

Redskins and Cowboys file grievance against NFL; Giants’ owner unintentionally helps them out | Shutdown Corner - Yahoo! Sports

If you read the parts that quote Halsell, what we did with Haynesworth and Hall in 2010 -- and what we were punished for -- is simply a greater scale version of what we just did with Carriker following the salary cap penalties. The argument that the league approved the deals in 2010, then approved the Carriker deal in 2012, strengthens the Redskins position that the tactic wasn't shady then, and isn't now.

The practical application isn't the same at all. But if we're going to fight to get the space back, using that technique again in a capped year makes a lot of sense to build a case.

Re: Redskins 2012 Salary Cap Status

But here's the craziest part: had either Haynesworth or Hall actually voided their deals in 2011, we would have received a salary credit for the amount of the bonus, meaning we could have effectively been working with a cap of about $135 million.

Of course, neither was going to cut us an eight figure check that was greater than the amount they would have gotten on the open market, but still. That would have been ridiculous.

Re: Redskins 2012 Salary Cap Status

It's about $7.5 million.

Of course, I have no idea how many of the moves we have accounted for above haven't cleared the league office yet. Could be zero. Could be more than zero.

Re: Redskins 2012 Salary Cap Status

A few predictions on the salary cap situation.

First, there is almost no way the NFL wins the greivance case against the Skins and Pokes, but will most assuredly file an appeal.

2nd is the 2 teams will be forced into a settlement with the league to avoid further delay of their cap configurations.

And 3rd is they will receive some relief with cap space this year, and most likely extra compensation next year. No idea what that relief will be, but have to figure it will be less than but close to half. The extra compensation next year will be an additional allowance on their 2013 cap number similar to what they gain this year.

Meaning the $18 Million cap penalty will end up being like a $3 million penalty, although it completely destroyed the team's free agency plans this year. Which is what the league wanted all along. My opinions only
