We're in really good cap shape.
Smith's injury was unforseeable, but i just can't stop thinking about where this team would be if we hadnt traded for Smith. We'd have 20M extra in cap space this year and Kendall Fuller. which means we probably woudl have been in a positon to cut Norman and sign other really good/elite starters in free agency.

Re: Redskins Salary Cap Status 2019

The one random FA signing I want is Berry. FS is still a HUGE question mark and could bite us all season long. Maybe 2-3 year deal even though he's old and injury-prone.

Very smart observation, hadn't really looked at it like that.
Snyder and his FO's should be barred from making trades. Seems like they are snake bit when it comes to trades.

Why does everyone want to get rid of Norman? He's still a top cover corner. I love him. He's always hustling and trying to force turnovers.

In your scenario, which starters would you have wanted to sign in FA?

I would be shocked if he gets a deal longer than 1 year with any team.

I'm thinking the same for the vast majority of veteran FA's at this point in the year.

Re: Redskins Salary Cap Status 2019

I know PFF's opinion isn't the final word or anything but they usually have a pretty good grasp on where individual players stack up.

They had Norman as a top 5 cover corner last season. https://www.profootballfocus.com/new...rbacks-in-2018

I forget who...think it was JP who said the other day, Norman accounted for 7 TO last year.

Ive never gotten the Norman hate. Is the salary high? yes but

3 picks, 3 forced fumbles, and 1 fumble recovery.

When he goes to make a tackle, he consistently tries to punch the ball out. He's just an all around awesome football player.

He's also available on the field and plays through injuries.

Re: Redskins Salary Cap Status 2019

I also don't get the Norman hate. He and a healthy Dunbar will give us a near elite DB field.

Was writing that right before I stepped out and didn't have time to look: Boston is still available?! If so, then yes, that's my choice!

We don't want to get rid of him because of his play. He's making 14M per year. He's worth maybe half that. To cut him this year would only save us half that, and then we'd have to have spent that money on a corner in free agency to replace him, so there's really no point in doing it.

Next year he's set to make the same, but its not guaranteed so we can cut him and then use that same money to sign TWO corners of josh Norman's caliber.

I think it's a $6M penalty if they cut him this year and a $3M penalty if they cut him next year.

But back to my original question: In your scenario, which starters would you have wanted to sign in FA?

None this year. As i said, the cost/benefit this year would not have been worth it due to our cap situation.
