Redskins' McIntosh signs offer [UPDATED]

Redskins linebacker Rocky McIntosh has signed his tender offer, the team announced Monday. Terms of the deal were not released, though McIntosh was initially given a second-round tender of $1.759 million for one season.

McIntosh was a restricted free agent and was outspoken about his disappointment when the team tendered him an offer rather than negotiating a multi-year extension. He even floated the possibility of a trade and skipped the team's first mini-camp as well as part of its voluntary off-season conditioning program.

McIntosh's signing leaves cornerback Carlos Rogers as the Redskins' lone restricted free agent who has yet to sign his tender offer.

The team also made a pair of cuts Monday, releasing kicker Justin Medlock and offensive lineman Paul Fanaika. Medlock's departure means Graham Gano likely will be the only kicker under contract in attendance at the team's final minicamp, which runs Wednesday and Thursday at Redskins Park.

McIntosh, entering his fifth year, has started 45 of his 62 career games and looks likely to be one of the starting inside linebackers in the team's revamped defense.

**Cornerback Carlos Rogers confirmed via text message that he will sign his one-year, $1.54 million tender offer and practice, for the start of training camp, on Thursday.

this "guess albert's weight" thing has me riveted.

so, how will we know what his weight is? is there a "weigh-in"? will that info be publicly available? do we count on our friendly RI staff to investigate and report on this? has his weight been such an issue this offseason that every reporter will ask this?

Posted by: walter-in-fallschurch | June 14, 2010 4:34 PM | Report abuse

no surprises with McIntosh.... as soon as Rogers wipes the butter off his fingers, he'll be putting pen to paper, as well.

Medlock didn't last long.

not much to say regarding Fanaika, other than the teleological perspective that shuffling of the O-line is to be expected until that unit soldifies.

No.

We just have some bored bloggas entertaining themselves is all.

You should expect a lot of this as after the all important two day practice this week, we'll have about a month and a half of very little important chit to chat about.

It always seemed strange to me that in an uncapped year the team wouldn't try to sign as many of it's own players as possible to long term deals. Why wouldn't they give guys big fat paychecks this year in exchange for several years under contract in the future with smaller base saleries. Front load the contracts now when there is no limit to what you can spend, and save money later when the cap comes back. Is there some flaw to this plan?

Posted by: kaasmaster | June 14, 2010 4:56 PM | Report abuse

I think Rocky is well suited to playing inside. Not sure many of the players that are being moved will be better off, but moving inside seems like a good fit for Rocky.

As a weakside LB, he didn't really generate much of a pass rush -- and that's a big part of the job. But he was decent in coverage, is a good tackler and moves well -- the things an inside LB needs

BTW MoodlyMoo, Kaas is cheese in dutch. (I thought a cow should know this.) Cheezemaster (my preferred spelling) and Cheesemaster were already taken as handles, so I had to come up with the closest thing I could think of.

The falw is the Redskins would be stuck with long term deals for players they don't want long term.

Yeah, but then they would be cutting players with relatively small base saleries, and it wouldn't be such a big hit to their cap space. Still seems win/win to me.

If Shayne Graham is still out there we should bring him in to compete with Gano.

Had Graham on my FF team for a while last year. Concluded that I'd be better off if he was on my opponents FF team, instead.

"I think Rocky is well suited to playing inside."


A bigger issue with Rock is, is he a weak link in pass coverage against pass catching tight ends.

The saints abused him with the ordinary likes of J Shockey.

Hopefully, Rock's coverage skills have improved.

That's funny.

He'll sign, he has no choice. Nobody else wants him right now.

With regard to the discussion about the team not signing Rocky or Carlos to long term deals, perhaps the new regime simply wants to evaluate all the RFA's in their new schemes before giving them long term deals, regardless of how the contracts and salaries are structured. Seems pretty reasonable to me. Evaluate them in the new systems first before you're contractually married to them for years.

Trust in Mr. Shanahan! This team is ready to move up! Players better sign or get off at the next stop! All Aboard! Hail! Give it a year and then load up the band wagon!

No, No weigh in per se. Instead a team from cal tech, Biologists, tectonic plate shift experts and Geologists will use the same techniques used to determind the orbital shift of Planet Earth after the Chilean Earthquake.

While not approved by various science labs, the technique has proven valuable and accurate in the past.

Not only was Jimmy Dean a singer and sausage man (singing sausage man is REALLY unfortunate), but acted in a James Bond movie...and his acting was not nearly as bad as many other Bond extras (Kim Basinger springs to mind, Grace Jones deserves an honorable mention. Jane Seymour. 'nuff said)

What does this have to do with the Redskins. Um...nothing. Just going with the thread

Posted by: cbeatley1 | June 16, 2010 1:23 AM | Report abuse

I say just hold on to Aintworth. Then he can't sign with another team, he makes Dan Snyder poorer, and these antics don't get the result he wants. Everybody wins. It's not like he's counting against the salary cap, since he's already drained that for years to come.

Didn't the redskins have the same problem with some guy from Miami? Seem to remember something like that. Stellar pick ups in free agency. Hope McNabb isn't the same kind of bust that almost all the rest have been.

Posted by: cbeatley1 | June 16, 2010 1:33 AM | Report abuse

He's a very LB and the team needs him, let's see if Mike S shows him respect.
