Re: Current Redskins Salary Cap Status - 2009

Basically, I think that the cap projection of 123 mil that was made prior to the economic downturn probably affected gross league revenues, and I would be surprised if the cap pushed north of 119 mil.

And if this can be construed as an excuse for getting rid of Casey Rabach, then count me in.
Who replaces him if we're too broke to meddle in FA? Jansen?
