Released by Redskins, Eddie Williams signs with Bears

Fullback Eddie Williams on Wednesday became the fourth Redskins player released last week to join a new team when he agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Williams, chosen with one of Washington's two seventh-round picks in the 2009 draft, did not appear in a game last season. He suffered a broken leg in practice in November and underwent surgery.

Wide receiver Antwaan Randle El, who rejoined the Pittsburgh Steelers, was the first of the 10 players the Redskins released to sign with another team. Running back Marcus Mason (San Diego Chargers) and defensive tackle J.D. Skolnitsky (Indianapolis Colts) also were not out of work long.

Just for grins, going back over the Vinny drafts from the Gibbs and Zorn era. About tie to close the books on it, at least most of the way.

6 drafts, 38 picks total, 15 players left the organization, 22 remain. Sean Taylor has his own category.

22 of 37 picks still with the team is a pretty impressive number. However, most of these guys are not core players.

Of the 22 that remain, 9 are among the group I'd call the top 30 Skins. They are:

Campbell
Cooley
Davis
D Thomas
Orakpo
Rocky
Doughty
Rogers
Landry

The other 13 are either new or have found their way onto the back end of the roster

Golston
Montgomery
Blades
Horton
Moore
Tryon
Reinhart
Henson
Barnes
Jarmon
Marko
M Kelly
Colt

The past 6 drafts have turned out less than 2 starters (or major role players) per year.

I went with top 30 guys, not just the 22 starters in that list of 9. Kept it to the last 6 years.

Feel free to pick at the list. I think the bigger point is that we really have relatively few of the teams top slots filled from the draft. 6 years of drafts for 9 spots. Less than 2 per year.

Very strong misconception. Haynesworth was actually considered fast enough to play End in a 4-3 and was used in that role at times in Tenneessee. Thats why Haynesworth is so good, not only is he a mammoth of a man with insane strength but he's among the quickest big men in the game. His true weakness is his conditioning.


Posted by: CapsXXVI | March 10, 2010 4:26 PM | Report abuse

======================================

Short area quickness - yes; speed to get outside - no. I'm sorry, but I just don't see him chasing down too many running backs.

Posted by: arizona4 | March 10, 2010 4:37 PM | Report abuse

What do you think a DE's job is in the 3-4?
Even if Haynesworth wasn't quick enough to chase down a running back it wouldn't matter because outside contain belongs to the OLB. 3-4 DE's in a traditional set control the C gap on the strong side and B Gap on the weak side, considering you play a one gap system like we seem intent on doing.

And even then I doubt that a guy like Richard Seymour, largely regarded as the premier 3-4 DE in the league, is quicker then Haynesworth. Trust me, he'll be fine, maybe even better off at DE in a 3-4.

6'5", 260#, 29 yr old. Started with Boys for 2 yr, then with Jets for 2 yr, Miami for 1, NO for 1, 49er's for 1 and finally KC for 1 yr. Last year was his best year for receptions, 14 for 135 yd. So I guess he is more of a blocking TE.

I dont have the exact numbers, but alot of those players released would of been owed large bonuses had they remained on the roster. Some averaging 1 Mil each. So Dan (and other owners did it, too) saved a boatload of money cutting them before the bonus deadline.

Based on averages from the league, we should be getting 3.5 keepers per draft class and not 2. So we're definitely under-performing.

It will be interesting to see whether some of our roster improves this year with better coaching. I mean, Rinehart is probably a bust since Buges couldn't improve him. But outside the O-line, I expect we'll see some improvement.

Hey L-S.
Saw your earlier posting about common shares wiped out..etc. on the Six Flags chapt 11. Your link didnt match your comment?? Chapter 11 is re-organization bankruptcy. Snyder, who remains Chairman, common shares are not wiped out.. albeit they may be diluted in the end. Also, US Chapt 11 bankruptcy law does not totally preclude outside assets for recovery.. Which was my initial point.
From uscourts.gov
"In a partnership bankruptcy case (partnership as debtor), however, the partners' personal assets may, in some cases, be used to pay creditors in the bankruptcy case or the partners, themselves, may be forced to file for bankruptcy protection."

The mantra of all the so-called "experts" is "build through the draft". But it's hard to do that. There's 32 teams so even if a team has a #1 pick there are 31 other picks before you get another selection. The SB champ Saints didn't build through the draft. The team they beat, the Colts did. But they did it with one pick, not multiple picks. This popular notion that if we hoard our draft picks and suffer through a couple of down yrs we will build a playoff caliber team is just that, a notion. Apparently Oak, TB, StL, Det, Clev never got that memo. If you take a look at the Saints and ask what was it about them that made them SB champs you prob would say their coaches and management and a few key players like Brees. Coaches and management saw potential in Brees in the right system that others did not. And Brees isn't one of those QBs who is going to wow you with Combine stats. Except for mebbe his Wonderlic score, but the Combine doesn't release that stat.

Chapter 11 is re-organization bankruptcy.

Posted by: SkinsneedaGM | March 10, 2010 8:20 PM

The company went bankrupt. It couldn't pay its bills. The company filed for bankruptcy. There is a trial in bankruptcy court and the court will decide who owns it.

There are two competing proposals. Under both proposals the company is owned by the debt holders. Nothing will be owned by the shareholders under either proposal -- they will be wiped out. The shareholders do not have any proposal under which they retain control of the company or even receive any residual value.

You are right that Snyder is still Chairman of the Board. I didn't know that the Board still existed, and it won't once the trial ends. The company has stated that Snyder will not testify in the bankruptcy trial. When ownership is resolved, the new owners will choose managers and -- if needed -- a board and a chairman.

If you think there is value in the shares you have a golden opportunity here. They are trading for $.15 on some secondary market. So, obviously, some people still believe that the shareholders will receive value after the company emerges from bankruptcy.

Below quote from the Washingtonian.. (which was before the AH signing)

"If Six Flags doesn’t begin to recover on its own, Snyder would have to support the stock aggressively. ........

Anthony Davis has odd day
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 10, 2010 8:51 PM ET
A few offensive line coaches showed up to Rutgers' Pro Day Wednesday, hoping to watch tackle Anthony Davis work out.

According to Mike Mayock on NFL Network, Davis didn't show up because of a hamstring injury that wasn't fully communicated to teams. Feeling sick, Davis wasn't even at the school. (Hmm.)

Mayock reports that coaches then needed to call Davis to come in to meet them. When he arrived, he wouldn't weigh in. (Hmm.)

Davis is a first-round pick, but there have been some concerns raised previously about his weight fluctuations and maturity. Wednesday's adventures can't help his case.

Snyder didn't, and wouldn't, "support the stock aggressively." That statement made no sense. It would be throwing good money after bad. And, he only owned about 6% of the stock. If he'd wanted to do anything to control the company, he would have bought the debt and he would now be a player in the re-organization.

On a recent appearance on Sirius NFL Radio, McCoy mentioned the Redskins as one of two teams who have shown interest in him beyond the normal, cursory contact that takes place at venues such as the Combine. McCoy said that he has met Mike Shanahan on a couple of occasions, and that the two have had great conversations. McCoy also said that he knows Redskins offense coordinator Kyle Shanahan, a fellow Longhorn alum, from various events in Austin and around the state of Texas.

Because the tire tracks from the bus Portis threw him under have yet to heal, and the team doesn't want to pay him an injury settlement.

This was posted by link earlier today:


**As the FAN first reported on Tuesday night, the Redskins have made a preliminary one-year offer in a somewhat lukewarm effort to retain veteran LT Levi Jones. To the surprise of no-one, Jones is holding out for a multi-year deal – but the two sides could probably make it work at two years.

**The Skins are also still considering making an offer to veteran free agent OT Barry Sims, as first reported by the FAN last weekend. Sims would love to play for new offensive line coach Chris Foerster again, and played in Oakland while Bruce Allen was running the show with Jon Gruden there.

I was curious to see Eddie Williams play. I was hoping that the Skins would keep him and drop Mike Sellers. He's supposed to be a good pass catcher out of the backfield. Looks for now like the Skins' starting skill players will be Campbell, Portis, Cooley, Moss, and maybe Thomas. That 3-4 defense better be good.

"If Six Flags doesn’t begin to recover on its own, Snyder would have to support the stock aggressively. ........
Says one lawyer, “He can’t tolerate the price of Six Flags stock being this low for very long. Don’t expect to see the Redskins spending a lot of money.”

Posted by: SkinsneedaGM | March 10, 2010 8:52 PM

Snyder didn't, and wouldn't, "support the stock aggressively." That statement made no sense. It would be throwing good money after bad. And, he only owned about 6% of the stock. If he'd wanted to do anything to control the company, he would have bought the debt and he would now be a player in the re-organization.

I was quoting the bankruptcy lawyers that the Washingtonian interviewed.. Either way, as Chairman of Six Flags (7% equity), its gonna cost Danny alot to shore up a pink sheeted delisted stock or buy back the stock back and go private..
He is into some serious doo here with bondholders and shareholders..
And this new limited spending on FA's may be the result, as the article indicated.

I speculated about Danny and his fortunes in a ZEKE'S UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES a while back. It IS speculation -- I've never seen his checkbook. But its worth taking a clear look on things we can observe.

First, that Danny had gotten hit pretty hard by some of his investments coupled with the recession. The major investments that I'm aware of, haven't been putting cash in his pocket.

Second, this team has spent a lot of money without payback. Danny has routinely spent a lot of money -- a lot of it winds up as 'dead money' -- money to players that are no longer part of the team. This team laid off workers recently, with perhaps a $1-2million impact. Danny hasn't been able to raise ticket prices in a long time, nor has he had the benefit of home playoff games.

Third, the fan base is not enamored with this team. There is plenty of evidence of this. Easy to get tickets, empty seats and early departures, suing fans, etc.

Fourth, the fan base hasn't been developed in recent years, especially among younger fans. A 22 year old college grad would only have seen only 1 playoff win in their life.

Fifth, there is a CBA coming up, a strike means there would be a stadium, owned by the team, depreciating without revenues.

Its also important to note that Danny isn't the 100% owner. He is the managing partner -- and the other partners probably care about their investment. I doubt any of the owners are happy about the dead money.

I also discussed the wait list, which underwrites the team's finances. My sense is that it might be a lot less solid than the Skins represent.

So -- is Danny spending less in free agency because of his financial situation? Could well be.

Daniel Snyder's net worth is 1.3 billion dollas.

My guess (and that is all it is) is that BA/MS gave him a plan to not only improve the team but to "fix" the salary cap. They told him no more "splash" signings. They told him real football people do things this way (read their plan).

Occam's Razor leads me to believe this is the reason.

If Danny has 'cracks in the foundation' (ie, problems with the with the wait list), then he NEEDS Shanahan to turn this around.

Daniel Snyder's net worth is 1.3 billion dollas.

Posted by: Curzon417

Curz, let me speculate on that a bit. First, lets assume that net worth is mostly tied up in the Redskins (which might be a wrong assumption). Most of that value can't be readily 'tapped'. One big item, I don't know if FedEx Field is paid for or if there is a mortgage still being paid.

The value of the asset is heavily based on the waiting list. If that disappears, the value of the franchise will drop very quickly.

The issue is actually cash generation. The cash is flowing because of TV revenues and ticket sales. The Skins get the same amount of TV money that other teams get (32 capitalists voting socialist when it comes to TV $$). The big difference is ticket sales, the Skins have a very large venue.

If the wait list disappears, there will be a huge drop in revenues. My instinct says 3 more years of failure and the wait list is gone. Tune in the NFL on any weekend and look at all the stadiums around the league. There are several that aren't full -- some not even close to full.

One more point, Skins mgmt seem to be paying a great amount of attention to the ticket buying fans in recent months. A massive new screen has been purchased for FedEx, there were in-depth surverys sent out to ticket holders, etc.

Danny is doing things differently -- my guess is that there is a reason. My guess is that the fan base isn't what it once was.

Zeke, I get what you are saying and don't dispute that something is making him change his ways. Could be the wait list. And if, like you said, in three years it could really hurt, now would be the time to address that issue.

As for the laying off of staff, that is happening league wide and could be more related to the CBA than Snyder losing revenue.

What you say has merit, but the simpler answer of the two is that MS has given him his plan and that is why we are not spending money in FA.

Occam's Razor tells me this. Until proven otherwise, I think that the slow start is due to MS plan and not 6 flags bankruptcy.

I think Shanahan has the power in the relationship and its Shanahan's plan -- but I'm sure Danny laid out the parameters under which he can operate.

So far, it's been easy for Dan to be well-behaved, and easy to imagine that fundamental change has arrived.

If there was a cap in place, we'd be way over it because of all the contracted players we're dumping. Add onto that a couple of FA signings and upcoming draft picks.

Maybe we're sticking to a budget because we're way over cap, but the truth is, there's no one out there to blow the bank on. So it doesn't really matter.

Posted by: lordtwang | March 11, 2010 1:50 AM | Report abuse

Again -- I'm speculating. If you're one of the owners not named Dan Snyder, you really only get 2 things from owning part of the team. You get good parking/seats at games (which isn't much of a benefit when the team is 4-12) and you get a dividend check (profit sharing?) each year.

What's been happening to those dividend checks? The costs have been going up (Portis, Hall, Haynesworth -- along with plenty of dead $$), but there are no more tickets to sell and Danny hasn't been able to raise prices. Suites aren't selling out and Danny is trying to upgrade the 'fan experience' by adding expensive things like a new big screens.

I'm guessing there is pressure from the owners who see the team's books.

I can't prove a thing, but I think Danny is seeing writing on the wall.

You and SNAGM are out there with your speculation.

I have a simpler theory. Snyder saw the wasn't winning so he's trying something new. If this doesn't work, then he'll move on to -- what? -- Plan D? Plan E?

I also have a more complicated theory. I can't prove it, but how about this? Snyder is under the control of Tom Cruise and the Scientologists. They are calling the shots. They have a plan to convert Shanahan to Scientology, and it starts with getting him in the building in Ashburn. Once he's there, they will bombard his brain with Delta Rays and he will join the movement. He will be the first Scientologist Head Coach and instead of getting all this Christian stuff that Gibbs gave us, he will spout Scientology after each win. I'm not sure how that goes, but it includes a large tithe.

Now, again, I can't prove this. But you can't disprove it, either, so I'm sticking with it.

The team has chosen the path of moderation and restraint that so many others do.

Adding a lot of big money/name players hasn't gotten us into the playoffs, so the alternative is to work selectively in free agency, and need based in the draft.

Here’s another thought that supports the new mentality around Redskin Park. For a change, the contract Kemoeatu was offered and accepted is laden with productivity incentives. I like the fact that a player must produce on the field to get paid.
It’s refreshing to notice the positive changes taking place.
