I like both Young and Paulsen. I'm glad that they will be around.
Wow, Rob Jackson back on a one-year deal!
WTF! I thought for sure someone would make him a starter. I thought he was gone. Awesome news.
I still think the most ridiculous part of that day was the fact that Egotastic (yes, the celebrity picture site) broke the trade about 3 hours before any reporters.
Now his deal will be up the same offseason as Orakpo's.
Don't think we'd be able to re-sign both next year.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
It's a big year for Orakpo. He has to stay healthy and play at a consistently high level. Otherwise, I'd rather keep Jackson for value.
This is what happens when you have a legit franchise player... People want to play for you.
I think it's kind of unrespectful- Ovie
I find myself irrationally annoyed that I can't down vote rnt's post, even though I know it's just a picture of his post.
I am a kind and generous offseason god. Just scroll down a little.
From the same page:
Sporting News offseason grades:
Key additions: QB Robert Griffin III, WR Pierre Garcon, CB Cedric Griffin, S Brandon Meriweather, WR Josh Morgan, K Neil Rackers, QB Kirk Cousins.
Key losses: S LaRon Landry, WR Jabar Gaffney, QB John Beck, S Oshiomogho Atogwe, WR Donte' Stallworth.
Having the dynamic, versatile Griffin at quarterback is a whole lot different and a whole lot more promising—even in the short term—than the Beck-Rex Grossman combination of last season. The early reports on Garcon as a go-to guy are good as well. The offense will come to life to support a defense that's still strong—and kept its leader, London Fletcher.
Losing Jabar Gaffney, John Beck, and Donte' Stallworth definitely crippled the season, imo.
Kory Lichtensteiger re-signing for 5 years
An investment firm whose sole method of picking stocks/funds is asking rnt and doing the complete opposite would literally be the wealthiest financial firm ever.
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
Chiefs are dumbasses too?
He is worth that much just for his awesome mouth guard alone.
im hearing pg plaza is the spot!
So we still have to squeeze a TE, RT, ILB, CB, FS out of our cap space and draft picks... :/
I think with how little rookies make, we'll be fine. Can use a pick on ILB, CB, FS, WR, and then find a RT in FA after we've cut hall and restructured a guy or two.
I just hope we're not back loading these contracts too much, want to be free to spend next year
We aren't. If we were doing that you'd see restructures like Pittsburgh has been doing. Cutting Hall and Moss gets us more than enough cap room to sign all of our draft picks. I'm somewhat surprised we haven't cut them already to give them more time to negotiate with other teams.
Our outside free agents are definitely going to be tier 2 and 3 guys though.
Shanny and Allen press conference at 4:30 today
Any idea why? Cap related maybe?
“Route 1, where everybody meets.” ~Nick Faust #5
Could go one of two ways.
1) Make general announcement about how the cap/cap penalties are going to force us to cut some guys we would rather not, but then announce the specific cuts 5 minutes later so they don't have to take questions about it.
or 2) Make the announcement of the cuts en masse. They took this approach in 2010 when we cut Randy Thomas, Rock Cartwright, Ladell Betts and others.
I think we'll see option 1 today- a general presser where Shanny holds things close to the vest.
I'd guess they announce some cuts, when can they officially announce guys they've agreed to terms with? Young, Paulsen, Lichtensteiger, and probably Fred should be announced at some point soon after they're allowed to sign.
Not really surprising, but a league source says KR/PR Brandon Banks will NOT be returning to the #Redskins
Sources: #Redskins have re-signed NT Chris Baker to a 1-year deal on a right-of-first-refusal tender that is worth about $1.3 million.
Approximately 3 million people in the greater Washington metro area will look like the Stan Marsh picture when this news is officially announced.
Mike Wise activates GOAT troll status.
COLUMN | The team is on the wrong side of history. Even for karma should go.
Thanks Mike, I don't think we understood your position based off the previous 6 columns you've written about this issue, your comments on your radio show over the past few years (before you got fired), and your participation in various forums on the topic.
God Wise is awful.
A troll's troll.... I was quite pleased when he got canned from his radio show a few days after whining/trolling about how empty Nats park was on a 30 some degree weeknight.
Plus he was pretty much Gilbert Arenas' mouthpiece for years, and hes a transplanted NYer posing as some sort of lifetime Washingtonian.
