NomadicSkinFan Posted March 13, 2006 Share Posted March 13, 2006 I know quite a few people have been complaining about the size of the contract, but I think Snyder is extremely intelligent with how he has formed contracts in the past. Due to the signing bonus, we know that Randle El has a minimum of a 1.65 million cap rate every year for 7 years. I would imagine that we is earning the minimum salary for the first 3 or so years, so his actual cap numbers for the first several years will probably be slightly over 2 million. This salary is very reasonable for the skills that ARE brings to the team. But, on the surface, this looks like a gigantic contract. How many FAs or future FAs do you think are looking at this contract and saying "wow... I want to be a Redskin". Dan Snyder built a marketing empire because he understands the power of perception. While FAs drool over the contracts we are handing out and other teams fans make fun of us; We are actually being extremely intelligent at putting ourselves in the forefront of every players mind. I personally love what we are doing. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
