  1. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    If we don't agree a LTD.. I'm coming around to the idea of using the transition tag on Kirk. No doubt a team will try and structure a contract with a significant year one cap hit of what, 40-50mil plus, but I think I'd risk that. The franchise tag drops in at 34mil. If another team makes that offer, and we match it, it falls back on Kirk and agent to show their true position. Does he accept our offer and sign up, or refuse to and force a move to his preferred destination if that isn't here at the Redskins. That may create a more lucrative trade scenario for a team with a bounty of picks. I mean yes, if he takes our offer then our available cap space is gone. We'd have to make a couple of restructures to create some needed headroom. But if that locks you in to your preferred QB for the next 5 year, it's worth it right. I reckon that would work, because in addition to the above I think the 2018 FA crop is by and large very uninspiring. At lot of average players are going to be bagging 8-10mil per year deals. Sign Kirk and push a big chunk of his contract cap charge through now, makes his cap hits down the line significantly more palletable, give FA a wide berth this year, build from there.
  2. True, contract with a low signing bonus and high early base salaries. The beauty of a **** load of cap space.
  3. Change the name from Campbell to Cousins, increase the numbers, and it may well be a story from the future.... Although if he goes to the Jags on less money he's taking an easy ride. I still think he'll be in love with the thought of playing for Elway. Im glad too at that price.
  4. Cant get the link across from espn but... His first two offers came from the Jaguars and the Washington Redskins. Each offered $12 million per year. When Campbell began debating the two offers, he felt Jacksonville offered him the best chance of going to the playoffs. Then the Jaguars increased their offer to $14.75 million -- just short of Campbell's goal. "That's enough for me," Campbell said in the video. But late in the afternoon on March 8, the day before free agency began, the Denver Broncos entered the race to sign Campbell. That changed the entire dynamic. Campbell is from Denver and grew up a Broncos fan, so the idea of going home to most likely finish his career was almost too good to pass up. Then the Broncos made an offer: two years guaranteed with an option for a third season. The first year would be worth $12 million and the second $14 million, giving Campbell an average of $13 million guaranteed. The option year, however, would be worth $10 million, dropping the average to $12 million if Campbell finished out the contract. He discussed the idea of asking for incentives to bring the annual average up to $15 million. If Denver had agreed to that, he would've signed with the Broncos. On March 9, the day free agency began, Campbell received another offer from Jacksonville: $60 million over four years, $15 million a year, $30 million guaranteed. Campbell's agent, Tom Condon, also pointed out that signing with Jacksonville would come with no state income tax. True, although it looks to me like there is more overpaid crap from FA these days. Once the tags filter out the fine meat, the scraps get fought over by the desperate vultures.
  5. In fairness we were in on him until it became apparent the Jags were just going to keep upping the cash, or so we were told.

    If Shurmar goes to the Giants a current Vikings QB may follow him I guess.

    Don't worry about the Jags, Elway will be the draw for Kirk. Can't see it any other way than the Broncos or us, the market wont pony up like he thinks.

    Just scrolled through and read this. Pretty well summarised right there. The NFL is a wash with crap, parity across 75% of the teams, very few outstanding organisation structures. It is what it is. I may be wrong, but moving elsewhere and creating a SB legacy for himself might be a struggle. I dare say it will be here as well, but hell... The FO may have **** the bed on his deal 2 years ago, but based on what I'm seeing I don't think his agent would be having him happily playing on a 16-18mil per year contract heading into 2018 anyway. They'd already be back at the table by now. This is one needs to come to a conclusion, thankfully it will soon. Kirk might get a shock in a new home when/if the wins don't come. FO disfunction or not, his contract will need wins to back it up, driven by him and no one else.

    Cracking game. City really were there for the taking today, fancied Liverpool and very fair result overall. City got done by the Anfield atmosphere for that 10 minute spell. That was the difference in my view. Liverpool need a keeper badly and will benefit from the new lad in midfield. City should be looking a for a new striker that fits Peps game. Sergio, class player, doesn't quite fit for me. And Stones is ****. Can't see him getting better to be honest. Stick with my view on a City/Liverpool 1-2 finish.

    Cant disagree that our FO is a sham at time. Don't know, think I'd like more accountability. All players want to win a SB. Well most will I'm sure. I half get his line of thinking, I really do. The other half makes me think he's selling out for an 'easier' ride on a nice contract. Can see both sides of the story, although I suspect as this comes to a conclusion more telling information will come to light.

    Liverpool/City should be a classic. City's record at Anfield is shocking, something like 1 win in 20. They are ripe for the taking today. Should be a fun watch.

    I'd agree here, although I'm still not that convinced Kirk should be concerning himself so much with the FO. Other than being pissed that he's not being given a good enough contract, he shouldn't be so influenced by the FO in my view. If his relationship with the HC is as strong as perceived, then he should be looking past he rest. Concentrate on his HC and fellow teammates. We spent years bemoaning players who have a fast track pass to the ownership or FO people.

    Harry Kane continues to look the business. Really is a world class striker.
