Redskins Insider: February 24, 2008 - March 1, 2008

Still Very Quiet

Despite reports to the contrary, multiple sources say the Skins did not make any real push for Lance Briggs; in fact, Chicago was his strong suitor by a mile. Skins watchiing the DJ Hackett market, and with WRs drying up it will be interesting to see if they make a...

Just A Hunch, For Now

I could see the Skins getting into the mix for Lito Sheppard. Not sure the Eagles would trade him in the division, and many doubt they would, but I could definitely see the Redskins making a play. We'll see how the Eagles move ahead with the corner and how the...

Best Of Luck, Terry Ray

The Redskins have released pro scout Terry Ray from the organization, sources said. Ray was known as a hard worker and a good guy around the building and someone who was well liked by the coaches (tension between coaching/personnel is natural in the NFL, given the inherently conflicted nature of...

Salary Cap Update

So the Skins were $3.5 million under the cap yesterday. Once the Collins signing becomes official - he has agreed to terms but all of the paperwork has not yet been executed - that would put the Skins at $2 million under the cap. However, the rengotiation with Santana Moss...

The Todd Collins Contract

According to sources, here's the breakdown on the deal TC just signed. It is indeed 3 years, worth a max of $9 million, with a $3 million signing bonus (but there's a cap-saving quirk as well). In essence, he'll get $4 million guaranteed - the $3 million signing bonus, a...

Random Stuff

The Skins still have no free agent visits planned, and it's pretty quiet beyond checking in with the agents for their own free agents, monitoring the market and holding internal discussions about possibilities on the trade or free agent market. Very strange for the first daty of free agency to...

Todd Collins Is Back, And Happy About It

Todd Collins has agreed to terms on a three-year deal with the Skins (sorry for the delay, painters and contractors showing up all at once as we finally try to get house on t he market, actually had to step away from the phone for a while). Anywho, just...

Todd Collins, Again

The Skins free agent priority has narrowed his field down to the Jags and the Redskins, sources said, with a deal expected today. There were negotiations with several teams until late last night, with Washington and Jacksonville pushing hardest. The Jags have a ton of cap space; Collins would be...

Todd Collins

The Redskins are among the teams talking to him tonight, and the Skins are making a push according to sources. Negotiations are ongoing. This is a priority for the Redskins right now as they are not pursuing any of the bigger named guys drawing a lot of interest immediately. I...

Free Agent Update

Todd Collins is set to hit the free agent market and will draw heavy interest from Jacksonville and St. Louis among others. He will likely let the Skins match any offer, and we'll see where the money goes. Coach Jim Zorn flew to Quincy, Mass. today to Todd's home, to...

Salary Cap Update

Some would try to make it sound as if the Redskins just barely beat a deadline to get under the cap, but as I've always said, one thing this team can do is create cap space/ The contracts for Mark Brunell and Rock Cartwright void at the the start of...

Redskins In-House Free Agents To Be

The Redskins have had discussions trying to keep many of their free agents, but there is little doubt many of them will hit the market. In some cases, the team believes players might return in a few weeks because the cash won't be out there on the open market....

Lloyd Cut

As expected. The final stats: 25 receptions, zero touchdowns. For $10 million in guaranteed money. Jason has written that he was due a roster bonus that the team was never going to give him....

Quick Update

Back from a mini vacation of sorts, or at least a day. Anyway, the Skins redid Chris Samuels's contract the other day after doing Jansen's as well - combined the deals created $6.3 million in cap space, so the Skins are roughly $3 million under and still have 3-4 other...
