Then why cut Sundberg? I didn't remember him having a bad season last year.

Re: WFT Free Agency

He didn't get cut, he was an FA and signed elsewhere. The question is actually why not match/better the offer? They probably didn't see enough from him to warrant the extra cost compared to other talent on the roster/in their sights.

I donít believe he left on his own accord. I thought He was cut due to health concerns from his tricep tendon injury. Donít believe there was an offer at all?

Elbow surgery. Still recovering. He snapped with partially torn ligaments this year. The ball was tailing on him a little. I think thereís at least a little concern on Ronís part that he wonít come back the same, or at least enough concern to say I can just find a different snapper at the same price (minimum) who will perform the same, and I wonít have to think about elbow recovery.

Probably thinking of it as find his replacement now as opposed to finding out in August he canít snap at all and scrambling to find one. Harsh but prudent.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that the new snapper will be at a lower price. Due to his years of service, the minimum for Sundberg is almost double what it would be for a new guy, as I understand it.

are we really worried about who the long snapper is? lol. sunberg had a nice run here but at the end of the day, no one gives a damn who snaps on punts and field goals.

I think that ol-Fitzt magic will win us some games next season, we'll be good enough to win the East and lose to the Bucs again in the first round!!

Itís actually not true. Thereís a rule that says if youíre making the vet minimum, you count the same against the cap as the rookie minimum. They do it for this exact reason, so vets donít get cast aside just because a rookie saves $200K in cap space.

I donít think cost goes into the Sundberg decision significantly at all. Itís just about finding a guy with fewer injury questions.

We will when the next guy gets the jitters on a game-winning field goal and chucks the ball 30 yards behind the holder.

People just assume the shits easy because talented players make it look easy.

This is one of those decisions nobody will care about unless we can't find another talented guy that isn't coming off an injury for next year.

Re: WFT Free Agency

Good update from Keim:

Looking ahead: Washington, with approximately $21 million in cap space, has mostly exited from the big spending stages of free agency. It will make some other signings, emphasizing depth or re-signing more of their own such as corner Fabian Moreau or LB Jared Norris on one-year deals. There will possibly be more low-end signings post-draft as well, once the team sees what it needs. Carrying cap space into 2022 will be a goal as well.

Re: WFT Free Agency

It's starting to look like we will look to resolve the LB and TE needs through draft.. Maybe FS too if we don't sign Tre Boston.

I think Keim said that someone like Tre Boston would be a post-draft signing (if he's still available). Likewise, I can see the team going after Ertz if/when the Iggles release him post draft.

Steven Montez will play all of those positions.
