Redskins face tough decisions

By David Elfin

THE WASHINGTON TIMES

January 18, 2006

Cutting lightning rod LaVar Arrington before training camp opens this summer might be psychologically cleansing for the Washington Redskins, but the team won't solve its salary cap problems by releasing its highest-priced player.

To do so, the Redskins likely will have to do a number of things, including reworking the contracts of several players and cutting or trading others who are in the final years of their deals.

How would it be psychologically cleansing to cut a player that the other players rally around and have shown a great deal of support for. Gregg Willams was on NBC 4 news last night talking about how PROUD he is of Lavar Arrington and what he has accomplished this season. I hope this guy gets kidney stones.

Thanks for the link, but leave it to a cowboy fan to not be able to read the entire rule. :silly:

Blah Blah Blah. Every year since Snyder has been here we were supposed to be in cap hell. Each year that turns out not to be the case. Thanks for playing though, it adds to the news until it proves to be bull**** in april.

Although you've been right up till this point, at some point its going to hit you. Not sure if that's this year, but its inevitable.

2003, 2004, 2005, and now this year we were supposed to doomed by the cap. Every year Danny restructures major contracts to avoid the cap problems, so what makes anyone think this year next year and the following will be any different. Face it Danny has found loopholes in contracts and the cap and continues to exploit them.

Will players be released, of course, but at the same time it's not like we are going to be releasing Sean Taylor, Clinton Portis and Santana Moss, we are going to be releasing Matt Bowen, Corey Raymer, and Patrick Ramsey(via trade). How are we going to be able to be a potential playoff team without those studs.

Owners who are not afraid to spend guarenteed cash upfront can alleviate cap hells from coming.

Snyder (and thus the Skins) have been able to wiggle around the cap limits over time because they guarentee $'s (which then get prorated over life of contract) in exchange for a player lowering his non-guarenteed salary (which counts the current year only).

Players/Agents like to do this because they get the money upfront AND its guarenteed.

The Arrington situation has been explained every which way until Sunday and no one seems to have a clear understanding of what the cap hit will be exactly. If I am not mistaken, the signing of a new CBA (not guarenteed at the moment) will lessed Lavar's hit since his 6 mil roster bonus would then be spread out over the remaining 5 (?) years. Thus saving the Skins 5 mil or so in cap hit next year for Lavar should he stay.

Sound right?
