Re: Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

I want the nuclear option cut Smith now. Make all garunteed money hit the 2019 cap and have a clean slat in 2020. Unlike Bruce I donít see this team being competitive and I donít see a reason to spend money in free agency and waste a year of contract in a garbage year.

Iíd like that too, but the only way Bruce and jay for it is if they were guaranteed to stay beyond 2020. No way they tank 2019 if they know their heads are on the chopping block.

That would require Bruce backing off this ďweíre closeĒ bullshit. As a side effect it would pretty much guarantee another year or even two of this current setup. So Iíd have mixed feelings about it.

Re: Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

Rick Snider Tweeted that there's a report that the Redskins might trade for Miami's Ryan Tannehill before he's released. Why not just let Miami release him and then pick him up if you think he's going to be good? (BTW, I think it would be a dumb move!)

Alex Smith will count $21 million against the salary cap next season. Does not matter if he is on IR, retires or is released. The cap hit is $21 million.
Colt McCoy will count $3 million against next years cap. Then what do you do with Johnson?

If they trade and acquire Andy Dalton, the contract is also acquired and he will count $16 million against next years salary cap.

Without considering Johnson, that would tie up some $40 million in the QB position.

To give it perspective, Aaron Rodgers is the highest paid QB in the league today. His cap hit is $26 million.

They canít afford to take on his salary in a trade... easy to debunk this dumb rumor

Re: Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

From a cap perspective, the skins best bet is to roll with 3 QBS next year:

1) Colt at 3M
2) Johnson, or another vet at a similar price
3) A rookie QB (hopefully not in the first round).

This way, we'd only be committing around 30M to the QB position (when accounting for Smiths 21M).

I know that isn't sexy or exciting, but its the most financially prudent option for us in 2019.

Yeah, this time of year, you'll hear a lot of "reports" that usually all wind up being wrong.

Re: Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

Do what Houston and Cle did, start the journeyman QB for a few games and then roll with the rookie

It would probably ensure that by 2020, the Redskins are searching for a new coach. Which, if the 'skins happen to "hit" upon one of the highly admired rookie QBs in the draft, then that might be a good bargaining chip for the next head coach.
