Daniels Uncertain of Skins' Interest

Jason Reid reports:

Confused about the lack of progress in negotiations with the Redskins, veteran defensive end Phillip Daniels no longer is confident he is in the team's plans, he said today.

"When people look you in your face, when you talk to them man to man, and they tell you how much they want you back and how much you mean to the team, yeah, you think" an agreement will be reached, Daniels said in a lengthy phone interview. "But then when you don't hear anything for a while, and the questions you ask don't get answered, when they don't clarify anything, you start to wonder, 'What's going on?' Everybody I talk to [in team management] tells me they want me back, but I'm starting to feel very unwanted right now."

Hoping to fill the hole at left end after releasing Pro Bowler Jason Taylor earlier this month, the Redskins quickly moved to bring back Daniels, 36, who sat out last season because of a knee injury that occurred on the first day of training camp in July. The Redskins offered Daniels a minimum contract, figuring he would accept it and return for his sixth season with them and 14th in the NFL.

But Daniels expected a bigger proposal from the Redskins "after going out there and playing hurt all the times I did and being the leader they said I was," Daniels said. "You tell someone how important they are to you, you don't give them the minimum. That's not showing somebody that you feel they're important and you want them. I told them don't come back to my agent until they've got something concrete. That was like 2 1/2 weeks ago. I keep hearing from some people [at the complex] that they're going to get it worked out, but I haven't seen that yet."

The Redskins yesterday brought back defensive lineman Renaldo Wynn, a former team leader released before the 2007 season, to help fill the void at left end. "I talked to Renaldo, he called me before" he accepted the team's one-year offer, Daniels said. "I told Renaldo to go ahead and do what's best for his family, because what's best for his family may not be right for my family."

Daniels, who makes his offseason home in Chicago, traveled to the complex to conduct a private workout for owner Daniel Snyder, Vinny Cerrato, Coach Jim Zorn, defensive coordinator Greg Blache and other team officials in late February. He said the Redskins told him they were impressed with his progress in rehabilitation after knee surgery, and revealed their plan to re-sign him and Wynn to address their needs at left end. "But Vinny never clarified who the starter would be," Daniels said. "Every time I asked him, he said he envisioned a rotation with me and Renaldo. But the starter is going to be on the field more than the backup, and it's just another thing that's confusing to me."

Concerns about Daniels's knee and age could be factors in the Redskins' decision to hold the line with their contract offer, Daniels said, and the team was only about $7 million under the $127 million salary cap before it reached a deal with Wynn. "I know they don't have a lot of room left, and they gave a lot of money to Albert Haynesworth," Daniels said. "Albert Haynesworth is a great addition, he's going to help a lot, but maybe with the money they gave him, the space they have left, and my knee and age, they're using all that as an excuse with me. But they've always found a way to make the cap work when they want somebody, and they keep telling me they want me. I really think Dan is a great owner because he wants to win and he will spend money on players, and I really want to be back with the Redskins. I hope it will work out. I thought it really would. I just don't know now."

Daniels, who said his agent has been in contact with other teams, will retire unless he receives the type of offer he believes he deserves. "Even with the injury, I know I'm still one of the best run-stuffing ends in this league," he said. "I'm just going to keep working out, be patient and see what happens. But I won't leave my family for what they're offering me. I'm sure about that."

Well Phillip, sorry buddy, dont let the door hit you on the a$$ on the way out.

See if any other teams are gonna offer more for a one dimensional 36 year old DE coming off a major injury.

This is sad.

The only one who should be uncertain is Jason Campbell!

That mediocre, non- TD throwing loser should be cut or traded by the end of the day. Look at how all he cares about is defensive additions this offseason in that fluff article on the main Redskins Page of the Post! He is the reason our defense tanked half way through the season. He couldn't score, and put way too much pressure on them not to lose games, and to even help win them! No wonder all our QB cares about is us improving our defense. he can't win the games for us!

Let's not waste another season on this guy!

Having Wynn and/or Daniels won't make or break the season. I'd rather see one of the younger players or a younger free agent come in than those guys. Nice guys, but their time has come & gone...

Daniels seems a little bit deluded if he thinks he's worth more than the minimum. He's an injury risk everytime he steps on the field. He's not going to get anything more than the minimum from any team he might sign with.

And please, no one take the bait on Guru... it would be nice to not have a 300 post thread about JC again.

What about this Kevin Shaffer character at RT, if we had room? Don't really see any other room we can make though... other than cutting Yoder maybe.... not many contracts left to restructure either.

I don't know why everyone complains about Jason Campbell. He's not a DE. He's not a kicker either. If they were playing basketball he wouldn't be a left wing. FWIW it's all about that.

Hey,

I'm just fired up after reading that fluff article.

At least the true redskins fans that read only the articles are out there bashing him along with me. Maybe something will get through to the Front Office about trading/cutting him when they see the true fan outrage that he is even our QB for yet one more mediocre season!

agreed on daniels, while I'd like him to be on the team, I'm not sure what he expects?? he's 36 coming off an acl injury...anything more than a vet minimum would be utterly foolish....put some incentives into the contract..I don't know what he's complaining about.

Posted by: BeantownGreg | March 17, 2009 2:10 PM | Report abuse

Is this guy for real, seriously. One of the best run stuffing DE's in the league, he did not play last year due to injury and the times before that he was injured a ton. You cant tell me with all of the mid level DE's that have been signed around the league, we could not have picked up someone better than Daniels and then to have to listen to him play his pity party and what he is worth. GOOD BYE...I thought R. Wynn was stupid and feel the same way with Daniels...why cant we rotate with Wynn, Jackson, Wilson and Buzzbee on the left DE or to help with right DE.

Posted by: mhartz1 | March 17, 2009 2:10 PM | Report abuse

He's 36 and he missed all of last year. I can't see any team paying him more than the min.

Daniels needs to put down the pipe, and get back to reality. I don't know what type of player he thinks he is, but to be offered anything more than the minimum, when he's coming off of knee surgery, at the ripe old age of 36, and not being anything more than a "run stuffer".....well, he can keep on looking for that "contract that he thinks he's worth"....i hope he's got plenty of time on his hands, because that sh!t ain't happening! Sounds to me like his Agent needs to step up and be honest with that man.

'skins are still undecided about how they'll approach the draft, that is why Daniels doesn't have an offer, and Montgomery and Squeeze'Em have signed tenders? At least they won't draft another DT or kicker

What's the difference between a tender and contract?

jgr,

Everyone wants to cut Jason Campbell, because he is partially responsible for the play at those positions being that he is the field general. See, if you have a poor general, than your troops will do poorly. They will try to advance catches and then fumble, they will jump offsides or false start, and yes, they will even shank kicks.

The reason is that they feel that the weight is all on their shoulders, because their QB stinks and won't win the game for them.

If we had a QB that would take chances down field, and take command of games, the rest of the team could lighten up and play more freely... thus perfomr better.

I am very glad you asked me about this. As a guru of sports knowledge, I am always willing to impart my wisdom upon young lads such as yourself. You see, it all starts at the top... and our top is our QB, as he goes, so do the Skins.

"What's the difference between a tender and contract?"

A tender is a contract offer that gives the team certain rights to the player. They also count against the cap even if the player hasn't signed the tender (if they go elsewhere, that cap money comes off free of a hit).

Man I wish we had that 2nd rounder right about now.

We badly need a starter at SLB, RT and DE, and we'll only fill one of those, assuming the first round pick doesn't suck like last year's 2nd rounders.

This team will never be consistently good under Danny.

BTW...what the hell is wrong with the FO...why are we chasing 36 year old mediocre players, this is garbage. If we have young talent on the roster, but we dont trust them, why did we draft them, why do we pay them, this is getting ridiculous.

Is Daniels better than: Engelberger, Bertrand Berry, V. Holiday, Kevin Carter or others that are still available, probably would eat a D-bag to get a minimum offer, why are we sticking with stale people or not letting our youngsters play????

I agree that sometimes people fumble while trying to advance the ball, but that's NOT always Jason Campbell's fault. Sometimes their hands are tired. Is it JC's fault they have tired hands???? NOOOOO!!! They need to do better hand training in the offseason. If they're hands are tired they are more likely to fumble. Now if JC throws the ball too hard and it hurts the hands or makes them tired then it is JC's fault. But not everything

And I get that he knows the system, but how hard is it,really. All pro players should be able to pick up a system with a whole off-season.

All I am saying is that there are people that are available that dont have 14 years under the belt and lots of injuries. It seems to me that Vincenzo and Danny have made their purchases and then fell asleep til draft week.

MORE INFO FROM THE BEST RESKINS BLOG IN TOWN:

Redskins cut Matt Sinclair

Redskins 360 (View Blog)
POSTED March 17 2009 2:20 PM BY David Elfin Print

Wearing a green shirt on St. Patrick's Day didn't give Matt Sinclair the luck of the Irish.

The Redskins just cut the linebacker despite their shortage of bodies at the position with Marcus Washington having been cut and Khary Campbell still a free agent. After making a good impression in his first NFL action for Washington in December 2007, Sinclair hurt his back in training camp last summer and spent 2008 on injured reserve.

"They didn't really give me a reason, but it's the NFL," the 26-year-old Sinclair said while carrying his possessions on the way out of Redskin Park. "I really enjoyed being a Redskin, but it's a business. I'm going to try to make it somewhere else."

I agree we need a better offensive line. It's like the carrot and the stick. Maybe the line needs some more carrots. I don't think Jason Campbell needs any more sticks. He probably doesn't like and it makes him sad.

This is unconfirmed, however an inside source says a trade that will bring Jay Cutler to Washington is almost complete.

The leak came roughly about 1 hour ago. Negotiations between Cutler’s agent, Pat Bowlen, Daniel Snyder, and the Cleveland Browns management have been ongoing for a few days and all sides seem to be happy.

The deal would see Jay Cutler, Tony Scheffler and Cleveland’s 3rd round pick going to Washington.

Jason Campbell and Chris Cooley Going to Cleveland and one of Denver’s 5th round picks.

Brady Quinn going from Cleveland to Denver and LaRon Landry from Washington will be going to Denver. And we thought that the Bailey-Portis trade was big. Our source says that teams will announce the deal at 5pm this evening.

Clearly they are waiting to see what happens in the draft ... all teams are. Depending on what transpires EVERY TEAM will likely begin revisiting signing the remaining free agents that are out there. The Redskins aren't any different from anyone else in that respect.

They hope they will still be able to sign a Washington and perhaps Philips.

If I were Skins management I would trade draft picks next year (Looks like a tough year salary cap wise!!!) for guys they need now hoping to develop them over the next 3. This is not a strategy I necessary espouse ... but its the path they've taken when they signed Haynesworth and Hall.

The ONLY WAY they will be able to find the supporting cast they will need will have to be through the draft.

Beyond determining the future of guys like Campbell and Rogers ... they have to figure out how they will compete with what will likely be vastly improved Giants and (probably) Eagles teams. Those are 4 critical GAMES out of 16!
And then there's Dallas who seems to be at about the same place more or less. With 3 additional draft picks Dallas may have the advantage.

ON paper they don't seem to be even close.

They probably are going to need a featured running back soon. They won't be able to consider getting rid of Clinton Portis until 2011. Its definitely a problem.

Daniels sounds like it hasn't occurred to him that his one last ride on the redskins' carousel left him with a bum knee and an, "I'm worth more than that...," attitude.

If I'm him, I sit tight and entertain as many offers as possible--that is, if he has any.

The Skins only have enough cap space available for one free agent signing that is over the minimum and probably less than 2 mil/yr. That is why they want Washington and Daniels back at the minimum.

Wynn essentially replaced Evans. He's still a solid player, already knows the defensive system, and is only 4 yrs older than Evans (but 2mil cheaper/yr)...

Manning sat out the equivalent of nearly an entire game because Indy was blowing people out. Brady, not so much. Belichick had him in there crushing souls even after teams had given up trying.

Had Dungy opted not to rest Manning so much (which was a mistake in itself in the last week of the season) Manning would have almost certainly surpassed Brady's marks. As it stands, Manning threw less passes and had a higher passer rating. Brady had the benefit of lofting balls to Randy Moss in triple coverage and letting Moss beat everyone to it. As good as Harrison was, he could never come close to comparing to that.

If the Redskins make any trades its going to be for draft picks not quarterbacks. I suspect they would have gone ahead and signed Byron Leftwich if they had the cap space.

Depending on the draft there might be others they could release to help the cap space.

Daniels hesitation might cost him the opportunity to play for the Skins this year. I really doubt any other team is going to make him an offer given his age and recent injury history.

He should have learned from Springs -- who lost 5 mil/yr by not renegotiating his contract. [He's making 3 mil/yr with the Patriots vs. 8 mil/yr with the Skins)and will be 37 when the contract is up.

Sinclair lost his backup SLB spot to Fincher.

The Skins will probably draft another DE with one of their picks... At this point they may have to draft for need with major holes at SLB, LDE, C/G, and RT...

On that list, PDaniels was rated higher (10th) than either Ohshansky (12th) or DEvans (14th). So Daniels is still considered a good DE. I believe he was the strongest guy on the team last year.

Having said all that, I don't think he is worth more than the vet minimum after having the injury he had last year. After all, we are in a recession. I wouldn't even offer him an extra ham sandwich.

From Warpath:

"Other Ways to Reduce the Cap Number:
·Cut or trade Casey Rabach (clear another $2.3 million)
·Cut or trade James Thrash (clear another $0.85 million)"

So, one can see where they may be thinking along the lines of a tackle and a starting center like an Unger or a Mack and a backup.

Perhaps trading Rabach for draft picks?

It seems almost certain, that given the right circumstances they will trade for more and hopefully higher picks.

Besides, people need to understand that TRADING a guy like cooley would hit us with a massive cap hit (since trading and cutting do the same thing in regard to the cap). so it would be impossible to do that after cooley just signed the extension with a big bonus that would accelerate and hit us this year. it's not possible.

Brian,

I just feel that he puts too much pressure on his line, because he isn't intelligent enough to read defenses, make it through his progressions, and fire the ball down field.

I am not sure that an above average offensive line, can make up for below average football intelligence.

Guru,
Point well taken, but one thing is for sure and that over the past 15 years I have been telling myself and every other skin fan I know that this is going to be the year. This year will HAVE to be the year because of JC's contract situation and upgrade on the line and possible big time OL pick. If he DOESNT have a good year the truth will be out. My question would be WHAT THE HECK (POLITICALLY CORRECT)DO THE SKINS DO AT THAT POSITION NEXT YEAR!!!!I do not see any of our back ups stepping up and being the man at this time.

They could release TE Todd Yoder, OL's Will Montgomery, and Batise and save close to $2,000,000. One can readily see where Fred Davis "stepping up" would have helped the situation.

Rock Cartwright is another unfortunate possibility that could give them more room with another $800,000.

I thought Trash was done last year. They will probably keep him through training camp, but I'd be surprised if he makes the team.

Rabach is the starting center and play caller on the o-line. He is the only center on the team and would cost 3.6 mil in dead cap space to cut. He's not going anywhere. Any problems last year were primarily caused by trying to compensate for injured guards and tackles. He did have occasional trouble blocking huge bull rushing NTs (like the Brown's 350lb Rogers), but who doesn't...

I'm just not convinced JC is the problem given how good he looked when we were 6-2 and he had no picks. The season turned south after the O-line melt down, injuries to Portis, and Santana operating at 80% (That's a what? 5' 9" 175 WR at 80%? - not gonna scare anybody with that...) ARE hasn't produced squat, he's pretty much proven he's a #3 WR and a gadget guy.

Yeah, he held the ball sometimes, but was anybody open? The bigger problem was that far too many times he was getting pressured by a defender before he had even completed his drop and got his feet set.

Bigger better O-line = more yards for Portis, more time and yards for JC, more wins.

If he can't step it up this season, then we should move on. Same goes for a couple of guys, like ARE.

Also, Jansen is a back-up center right? Can he play guard? He's such a good run blocker... Just wondering.

Still, that's a lot of old guys for one line, and increases the risk.

Which takes us back to the #13 draft choice. Still need a young pass rusher, preferably from the LB position. Hope there's one who can be rationalized as the best player on the board (there are always four or five guys who meet that standard, and the GM picks one and pretends he was the only choice all along,)

OK, this is really a two part question.

Why didn't Jacksonville keep him? Because he burnt that particular bridge but good. The coaches were tired of him, the fans were tired of him, the owner was tired of him... you can't wear out your welcome any more thoroughly than he did.

That's why he's on the market. Even Randy Moss or TO aren't as big a gamble.

Second: although drug use certainly detracts from performance, its effects are on athletic ability are often hard to detect. There are a zillion examples, from Hollywood Henderson to Cris Carter to Len Bias -- heck, all the way back to Babe Ruth if you include alcohol.

Anc cocaine isn't a drug known for lasting physical damage. Most of the medical effects are related to loss of appetite, poor sleep patterns, and cardiac stress. Those are the sort of things that turn up on a physical. It's entirely possible that a summer drug-free could restore Jones to something resembling peak condition.

So the big gamble is his drug use. Is he in recovery, or not?

That's what clauses in contracts are all about.

Should the Skins sign him? Not my call. But you can be they've considered it.

And trust me he is not what he could be which is why he is not playing. Drug use will destroy you, sure you can get buy but.... lets look at it like this, Carter wasn't good until he matured, Bias I allegedly only used drugs one (and Died), not sure who Holloywood is, and Ruth he was special but you can see how drugs ended his career. All I'm saying is if your using drugs go use drugs but as a fan paying to see professional athletes I want to see football players play not dug addicts. He can play a little bit but to be honest not good enough to go to any team at this point. Not even Jacksonville. Hes a drug addict.

The Redskins can get a first round pick for Cooley. they can get a high number first round pick for Cooley for the simple fact that teams don't want to pay for high priced rookies. I wouldn't be suprised if a team gave up a player and something like a player and 2 picks for him. We have Davis, to be honest Cooley is expendable.

I told him that I need to weigh my options and he don't fault me for putting my family first. I have also received a coaching offer by my son's high school which would help me be hands on in the process. I am considering both opportunities and being a 13 year vet, I have to make sure things at home is taken care of first. My family wants me to play so I am considering returning. Remember the saying, believe none of what you hear and half of what you see. Well that's what you got to do with articles on the internet or in the papers because they rarely tell the whole truth.
