Re: Redskins 2012 Salary Cap Status

[QUOTE=CrazyCanuck;892906]It's hard to construct a deal without knowing exactly what Manning wants, or what financial sacrifices he's willing to make to help build a winner.

But from the Skins perspective my view would be simple: I'm willing to pay this guy top dollar as long as he's on the field playing.

The simplest way is to just give him huge salaries every year. While he's playing he will earn big money. If he gets hurt or is no longer playing at a top level, we can release him with no repercussions. This would also leave open the option of a restructure, either to bring his pay in line with his play, or to free up cap room for a title run at some point.

The "incentive-laden-deal" doesn't really makes sense here. Salary is plenty of incentive to begin with since it's not guaranteed. Plus Peyton has earned enough respect that he doesn't have to play for incentives. You can throw him a bone for a super bowl or mvp but otherwise there's no point. If he's on the field playing it's safe to assume his competitiveness and professionalism would follow.

It comes down to how much he wants guaranteed. I'd take money from future years salaries and give it to him up front as a roster bonus so the whole thing would hit our cap in 2012. I'd prefer to take the hit now when we have cap room and still suck. Allen has been constructing most of his deals this way (ie Monty). Pushing a lot of bonus money to future years is a bad idea IMO.

So to summarize I'd pay him all salary, plus a big roster bonus in 2012. He might have a huge cap hit in 2012 ($25M) but it will lower his salaries in future years. And we can release him at anytime with no deadcap issues.[/QUOTE]


Good stuff, makes great sense.

Cam was 4/$22 last year, and Von Miller was 4/$21. I'd guess closer to Newton's.

Re: Redskins 2012 Salary Cap Status

With inflation added. Whatever the cap when up by from last year to this year's $120.6, take that % increase and apply it to Newton's contract, with a slight adjustment downward given that Griffin is 2nd overall, not first.

I'll say 4/$23 M.

Re: Redskins 2012 Salary Cap Status

The cap went up (or is estimated to have gone up) by 0.2%.

The difference between Cam's contract and Miller's contract was larger than the relative inflation.

4/$23 is a pretty good estimate because while the rookie cap is rigid, it isn't so rigid that the agent for Griffin won't be able to use the size of the Redskins rookie cap and trade package to get a better deal than anyone in the draft got lat year.

A high pct of it will be in a signing bonus, but the entire amount will be fully guaranteed, so that hardly matters.

The Redskins will also receive a club option for 2016 at the value of a transition (?) tag, but they have to make a decision to exercise that (which becomes guaranteed when exercised) before the start of the 2015 league year. To put that in perspective, that is where Stafford, Sanchez, and Freeman are right now in there careers. Do we yet know who the best of that class is?

It would help everyone if Griffin is very good very fast, because it makes sense if you know he's going to be your QB for a long time to get an extension done prior to the relevant contract option because you're going to have to give him a boatload of guaranteed money anyway, so itd be best if you can sign him long term with that money rather than committing to give it to him and still having to sign him.

Basically, your commitment to Robert Griffin as a function of this trade is three years. But we already knew that because we don't have a first round pick in 2013 or 2014, so it's kinda difficult to replace him with a Matt Barkley or a Tyler Bray.

I think Stafford and Freeman are at the same spot in their development (and they were the same prospect coming out essentially), but Stafford's team is loaded with talent and Freeman's is a big question mark.

This will blow your mind: Stafford and Freeman will both be the same age week 1 (24) as Ryan Tannehill and Kirk Cousins will. They're about half a year older in actuality, despite three years more experience as NFL starters.

Re: Redskins 2012 Salary Cap Status

The projection now adjusts for the $120.6 cap and confirms Davi's franchise tender. I also now believe I was double-counting the Monty contract. And finally, I upped the league min value from 375k to 390k, which changed practically nothing.

The result is $34.2 million in cap room entering the unrestrictred free agent period, of which I am expecting 27% to go towards existing Redskins with expiring contracts.

I would expect Robert Griffin to account for about $5 million in 2012 cap dollars.
