Re: 2017 Redskins Salary Cap Status

Thompson had several game changing plays this season. He a big time quiet baller...I think he is extension material.

He woulda had another big play last weekend end of game if it wasn't for that damn Snacks Harrison...

i feel like you can always find them late in the draft or even as undrafted free agents.
That's a good point. They usually don't come in ready to pick up the blitz, though. Luckily we could keep Thompson without spending much dough. My issue with him is durability. He played all 16 this season, but can he do it again?

He did his job and then some this year, whether it was blitz pickups, running the ball, or being Kirk's check down option when plays broke down. He's worth the 2nd round tender at minimum, but if they gave him a longer deal I'd be fine with it. He's not going to break the bank and we know he's capable of being our 3rd down back, which is all we need him to be. It's a no-brainer for me.

Re: 2017 Redskins Salary Cap Status

a good defensive coordinator might make a player out of Earl Wolff....he just signed reserve/futures contract with the Redskins

I saw that, but he still managed to slow him down, just not enough. I'm putting that partially on Kirk for not recognizing the blitz though. Besides, as much as I hate to admit it there is a reason Landon Collins is being touted as a potential all-pro. Talented players make plays, that's what they're paid to do. One play doesn't make or break him.

i can dig it, he's just not a guy i would go out of my way to re-sign.

Re: 2017 Redskins Salary Cap Status

OP edited to reflect $3.0M saved due to retirement of Kory Lichtensteiger. Saves $3.5M on the cap, then one player gets added back to the rule of 51 at ($0.5M).

Net impact $3.0M saved.

does his retirement have the same impact on the cap as if we had cut him?

For Gruden's offense to work the backs absolutely have to pick up the blitz. Ironically, Clinton Portis would have been the absolute ideal Gruden back. Remember how wicked he was on stoning blitzing LBs?

Anyway, Garcon could be less than $8M but he's a 1000 yard receiver, who could potentially put up more in an offense that featured him more often, like in 2013 when he put up 1,346 as our only WR worth a crap. But he's 30, so if the Skins bring him back I'm assuming it will be on a 2 or 3 year deal, which of course minimizes your ability to spread a signing bonus over the life of the deal.

He's worth $9M a year on the open market in my mind, so $8M cap hit seems reasonable. He just came off a 5 year contract that paid him $8.5M per year, and that was signed 5 years ago. So on one hand you apply some inflation, on the other you shave a little value off because he's 30. So figure he'll get $9M or $10M per year on the open market.

If we gave him $27M over 3 years, the cap hit could be $8M in year 1, $9M in year 2, and $10M in year 3 depending how you structure it.
Best blocking back we've had since Portis, and solid check down option out of the backfield. Surprised he's not seeing a lot of love. I also agree with you on Garcon. I would be fine with 9/mil a year, we could manage that and there's always renegotiations if necessary.

Re: 2017 Redskins Salary Cap Status

Does anyone give updates on the salary cap? Wondering how we stand, with FA signings including Pryor, Cousins franchise tag.. We still need DL in my view, hoping Logan signs -- but not sure how much more we have to spend..

Re: 2017 Redskins Salary Cap Status

Realistically, how much cap space would signing Kirk long term and converting the base salary to bonus free up this year to sign more defensive talent?

Anybody have an educated guess?
