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!

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.

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!

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

Maybe we can get the Browns to give us a haul for the number two pick

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

If they can split it any way they want between this year and next, can't they defer 100% to next year and fight it in court or appeal? Maybe they can get the amount lowered.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

From what I understand the owners had an agreement that they wouldn't do this and then the redskins and cowboys did it anyway. Maybe I read the article wrong though, but this is why the owners got mad and told on them and godell has a need to show off how manly and in control he is... so this is what happened, and appeal sounds nice but probably wont work, in all of sports appeals rarely works, baseball had their first successful one so this is something we will probably have to live with.
