Gotcha. I just thought you said if we had never made the Smith trade then we would have been in a position to cut Norman and sign some good or elite starters in FA.

I was just curious which guys you had in mind when you said that.

In making that statement, i was saying that Kendall Fuller's presence (we gave him up as part of the deal for smith), would have made Norman expendable. We'd have cap savings from cutting Norman, which we could have used to address other areas of the team, we could have used it on a FA CB (there were many available in free agency), we could have drafted one (assuming we spent money to fill needs elsewhere in free agency), or we could have just rolled with Fuller an Dunbar as our top 2 corners. Hell, we could even have cut Norman and resigned him (think this could be an option next year).

My point was the additional 20MM in cap room without the smith contract, plus the presence Fuller, would have given us the flexibility to dump Norman's ridiculous contract.

I understand your point, your reasoning, and everything that you said.

I am still just curious about which specific free agents you were thinking of when you said good/elite starters.

Agreed. Josh Norman is overpaid for his level of production. The Smith contract has Bruce Allen all over it - paying a decent QB over 35 for that amount of money for a five-year deal is just ridiculous.

He's going to get a one year deal, if he doesn't get cut and if Trent doesn't come back. I think at this time they're just looking for a plug but saving the big bucks for a real FA if the TW thing goes south.

How is he going to get cut? They have one decent tackle now. And they worked him out prior to signing him.

There is nothing to get excited about in the 2020 free agent LT class.

If TW is back, everybody's healthy, Geron Christian improves dramatically, and depending on Penn's contract, that could be in play. They have cap space available though so I don't see it. A quality veteran LT is a good person to have on your roster, even as a back up.

Re: Redskins Salary Cap Status 2019

Penn is 36. He’s a stop gap for a year or two. He’s either going to take TW place if Trent doesn’t come back or be a backup if he does return or gets hurt.

The Redskins will start using high draft picks for the OL just as they have done to upgrade the DL these last years.
