Let's say it is confirmed that Alex Smith's injury is a career ender, or at the very least will sideline him for 2019. What should we do about the $41m in dead cap money (remaining guaranteed minus insurance coverage)? Personally, I want us to absorb the entire hit in 2019. Colt McCoy won't last more than 6 games, and Josh Johnson isn't going to win more than 2. Is there really any difference between a 5 or 6 win team versus 2-14? Taking the hit all in one year will mean gutting the roster. The question must be asked for each player: Will this person be a significant contributer 2020 and beyond? Allow Crowder, Clinton-Dix, and Smith to walk in order to collect comp picks. Extend Scherff, Ioanaiddis. Cut Norman, Vernon Davis, all the FA DL we've picked up along the way. Probably need to cut or try to trade Reed. Draft an edge rusher or LT in the first and second rounds. Grab as much OL in the draft as possible. What Brucifer the Prince of Dimness will do: A 3-13 season followed by a cleaned cap mess might provide the team with its best long-term outlook, but it would also provide the impetus for finally expelling Brucifer's demonic stench from Redskins Park, and Norv...er...Gruden along with him. Sooo....they will keep Smith on the payroll with the intention of spreading his cap hit over 3 years - salary in 2019 followed by post-June 2019 cut so the dead cap is split between 2020 & 2021. Such a maneuver not only might provide just enough wins to calm Snyder's impulse to clean house - it will render the Skins cap position for 2020 so handicapped that they wouldn't be able to attract serious FO/Coaching talent to replace Lord Farquaad's current collection of minions.
