Has the season even started? I would never guess a trade was possible right now.  Watch us get nailed with tampering and lose an additional pick.

4 years (reportedly) and we don’t know the structure. Most likely in reality we can get out after 2 years.

 

But let’s wait for details before anyone lights fireworks or jumps off a bridge.

 

The structure is spread equally over four years.   The signing bonus of $18 million is NOT ours to pay I don't think.   So, in theory we're only on the hook for $50 million over four years.   But not sure on that.

So can we still tag and trade Cousins?  Because we could make up that 2nd round pick that way hopefully.

A player being involved in the trade seems to not be 100%.  Some reports say the last they heard the price was just a 2nd rounder.  Other reports say it includes a player.  I'd sure like to know which is true.

 

I realise this will never happen - but how about we wait and find out and THEN hyperventilate?

Please don’t let it be true a 2nd. That is the killer or me

Of course its true. We probably gave them Breeland too just to make it all Skins like. Change the damn name already.  Freakin idiots.

Why do we continually agree to shoot ourselves in the foot?

 

Rest of the league: "I'm going to set a gun on the table...

 

Redskins FO: "Can I shoot myself in the foot with it?" 

 

Rest of the league: "Well, you could, but I'm just setting it down for second..."

 

Redskins FO: "Can I touch it?" 

 

Rest of the league: "I mean, I guess, but don't... OH DEAR GOD!" 

 

This sums up the Snyder ownership perfectly.

No one is giving up a dime for Kirk. All leverage gone. Complete FA

Can't trust this FO to do anything worth believing in.  AS will not see the end of this contract.  I can't seem to understand why losing Kirk is an acceptable option for this organization.  This puts more pressure on the scouting dept. for a good draft.  Give Andy Reid credit he certainly knows how to take advantage of the Redskins.

Called it as soon as Chiefs season ended. Good decision. We all needed this to end.

 

The Second is steep but if extension is significantly less then Cousins worth it. If they are smart about it they can still get a third round pick for Cousins next draft. Means reupping Breeland and Preston this year with free agent money and not going free agent shopping. Also could signal a trade has been agreed to with Kirk Cousins and they still get compensated for not matching a deal. Happy this is over. Welcome Alex

What did we give for him and how much are we paying him for how long.  That’s all I want to know.

 

Personally I think Smith was a product of Andy Reid.  Maybe he will work our here, maybe not.

Breeland is a free agent. Who's the idiot? Look in the mirror.

We save a lot of money in the cap and can get better all over the place

 

$7M, if that's the number, gets you one average veteran FA. That's it. That's not worth the 2nd round player and his cheap contract. And it's not worth gettinf 5 years older. 

 

Jay and Bruce are scrambling to win some games knowing Kirk was gone.

...Welp, good news is pitchers and catchers report on the 14th. 

 

Let's hope this breaks with tradition, we're all wrong, and it actually works out for the 'Skins. Got a funny feeling that's not gonna happen, though.

But if we're not on the hook for the signing bonus, then we can walk away any time we want without a cap hit, right?

 

Year 3, we've got somebody better lined up, you simply cut him and move on, no?

So going over the hill again instead of taking of their own.  SMH!  They haven't changed one bit since the Vinny days.

Theyve typically had a good defense during Smith’s time there and still have a good amount  of talent on that side of the ball

 

In his six years they've been 28, 24, 24 and 20 in four of the six.   They were top 10 twice.   Try again?

If we let Kirk walk we get a comp. pick right?

 

Only if they don’t sign other teams players in free agency. They can sign cut players though

A 2nd round pick on its own is horrendous value for Smith. If a player is added we've literally been fleeced. 

 

Worth remembering that the 49ers got a franchise QB in Jimmy Garopollo for the same value only months ago.
