This thread is equal parts a summary of where the cap stands today, and a list of the moves the team is likely to make to manage their cap flexibility.

As the team makes moves I'll try to keep this updated to reflect the actual impact on the cap.

Redskins Cap Space Entering 2019: $17.7M

Moves Likely to be Made:
Sign Brandon Scherff to a contract extension $5.0M estimated
Release Zach Brown $5.75M
Release Stacy McGee $2.3M
Two Players Move into Top 51 ($1.2M)
Net Cap Impact of Signing Rookie Class ($4.0M) estimated
Available Cap Space for Free Agency - including Likely Moves: $25.6M

Other Potential Moves
I'm not sure these are likely. But for your reference here's the potential impact.
Release Mason Foster $4.0M
Trade or Release Jordan Reed $6.07M
Release Vernon Davis $4.97M
Release Josh Norman $8.5M
Tender to Maurice Harris - RFA ($1.9M)

Yeah despite Alex Smith's contract we're far from cap hell.

All your likely moves make sense, wouldn't add anything.

I thought after the Instagram snafu Foster was a lock to be cut, but if the "it was my cousin" thing is enough to put it past, I'm fine with it, I've said many times he's an underrated player, he has ups and downs but on a good day he's extremely valuable.

In my book Norman stays too, definitely overpriced but he's played way better than most think IMHO.

I would be in favor of cutting Vernon Davis, I'll take the 4.9M over an aging TE that can't block and had several crucifying drops last season.

Moving forward:

I honestly wouldn't spend too much in FA, bringing Nsekhe, Kouandjio and Johnathan Cooper should be cheap priorities. A lot of veterans G are available, get a proven one to start at LG.

We also need a WR, obviously, I'd love to bring Crowder back, but at what price ?
This staff is going to want to be competitive now, so they'll probably try to find a #1, which we desperately need, but I hope they don't overspend, because the list of UFA WRs is not exactly wowing me... (plus I hope they're gone next year so we can start to hope again).

Re: Redskins Salary Cap Status 2019

Original post updated as of today at 8:30, reflecting the Keenum trade, Collins signing, Peterson resigning, Zach Brown release, and Stacey McGee release.

Still enough space remaining to do something at the other safety spot, left guard, and as long as they renegotiate Scherff then they could fit in a big WR acquisition if they so choose.

Re: Redskins Salary Cap Status 2019

If you could cut Norman and instead sign Ronald Darby and Tre Boston, would you?

No brainer yes. Josh is on the decline, as his grades have reflected it.

If we were to be sure to land these 2 it would seem like a no brainer, given the respective ages of these 3 players.
But I'd cut VD and try to see what I can do with the 20M we'd then have available before cutting one of our best players.

Re: Redskins Salary Cap Status 2019

To free up more cap space it wouldn't be surprising if they cut or trade Jordan Reed....a TE undrafted with Antonio Gates type of ability can be found if the scouts look hard enough and Gates was undrafted.

Ummmm. Wut? We are not going to find an Antonio Gates undrafted. Sorry

Totally agree.

I am only curious as to why you would limit finding undrafted HOF players to the TE position.

Re: Redskins Salary Cap Status 2019

I would 100% cut Reed or Davis, bump Sprinkle up the depth chart, and draft a TE.

If I'm in charge I'm 100% drafting a TE. And it if Hockerson is available I'd be ok doing it in the 1st.

You aren't finding anyone who is going to give up anything of value for Jordan "made of glass" Reed, either.

In every season he has missed two or more games due to injury and in countless others played at way less than 100%. He probably is only physically able to make a strong impact in an average of 8 games a year career wise. His health is not going to magically improve as he pushes 30. With his contract you would be lucky to get a bag of day old doughnuts for him. He needs to be cut.

Yes, it is time to cut Jordan "I cannot make it through training camp" Reed.
After looking at his NFL career stats I am blown away how unspectacular they are. According to over the cap Reed has a 2019 cap number of $9,674,125
5.1% of our cap
This is no bullshit but here is Jordan Reed NFL career starts by year and TD production:
2013 4 starts 3 TD's
2014 2 starts 0 TD's
2015 9 starts 11 TD's
2016 8 starts 6 TD's
2017 6 starts 2 TD's
2018 8 starts 2 TD's

Hey PFF experts, do these look like stats of a someone going to cost our cap $9,674,125 hit this year?
Gruden needs to take off his blinders.

I agree 100%. They need receiving threats and a TE that can block and catch would be a solid pick.

It looks like there are several good TEs, but none that can block and catch like Hockenson.

We definitely need a TE. Where I'm lost is how we are going to find the solution as an undrafted FA.

A good scout does his homework and his research.....this is how teams find a Shannon Sharpe in the 7th round....this how they find undrafted gems like London Fletcher, Tony Romo, and Victor Cruz.....it's not about placing limits....it's about intense scouting.
