Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

I keep hearing that Sellers and Atogwe were goners regardless of this cap issue.

well yeah thats what I meant in an ironic way, but that is good news cowpricks not being to get shit tomorrow.

You know ole Jerah and Danny Boy right now are on the phone together pissed off, yapping it up like two school gurls. They probably thought they were real slick couple years ago when they were taking advantage of the system.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

So much for giving RG3 a new weapon, you think there's a chance they split up the penalty where most of it will be next year hoping that the number will be reduced if we appeal, that way we can still make some big FA moves

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

So (and this is a hypothical because I saw this and am not positive if this is why we got to 36 million)... if the reason this is happening is because we paid bonuses to Haynesworth (21 million) and Hall (15 million) in one lump sum?

So they're just assuming they would have gotten bonuses of $0 that year? Like this whole thing is fishy, it stinks, and I just don't like it.

Still being haunted by the Haynesworth signing. Thanks again, Vinny!

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

You know what, this could be a blessing in disguise for us.

This could be the sign that we should just go all for the draft and undrafted FA's this year.


Expect a lot of trade downs in the draft Skin Fans!

Thats a very good point, if true. Haynesworth would probably have gotten atleast 10 million that year, hall, maybe around 5. I definetely think that, if we're penalized, it should be based on how much the NFL thinks we should have paid out in later years as opposed to just the uncapped year.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

This is total bullshit. What a subjective application of this. Sure, we used the uncapped year to our total advantage. If this wasn't mentioned in the talks, then the NFL has no right.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

Eye On Football - CBSSports.com NFL takes cap space from Cowboys, Redskins for front-loading deals in 2010

If true, I'm pretty shocked. I mean a) the NFL doesn't generally give warnings on this kind of stuff, they just disapprove the contract and b) Allen and Schaffer are among the league bests at this and aren't careless
