The Redskins don't have many free agents this season (Moss, Rocky, Carlos, Grossman, McNabb - sorta), but 2012 is a HUGE year where 16 guys on our current roster are up for free agency. That's 30%! Here they are in alphabetic order:
Josh Bidwell - (Was placed on IR. Due to make $1.5 mil in 2011. Please cut.)
Anthony Bryant - (NT played admirably at the end of the 2010 season. Due to make $640K in 2011).
Adam Carriker - (DE who turned it on the last few games for the Redskins. It's hard to believe he's only making $1.42 million next year - less than Bidwell).
Phillip Daniels - (Long time Redskin and Bear has a $1mil paycheck in 2011. I know he has Google Alerts set up to read his name in the news, so, "What up Big Phil?? Hope all is well in Chicago!").
Fred Davis - (The gifted TE for some reason does not see a lot of action. With this being the last year of his contract, the Redskins either need to trade him or start him). When Fred leaves, that essentially seals the 2008 draft as the Redskins worst one ever.
London Fletcher - (I really try to picture how bad our defense would have been the last few years without #59 and I cringe. Who is going to fill this guy's shoes? Like Ray Lewis, he has a Ford-tough motor. Will it extend past 2011?)
Graham Gano - (He's a restricted free agent)
Vonnie Holliday - (I really have nothing to say).
Chris Horton - (The injury-riddled Safety needs a solid and healthy 2011 season to not only stay a Redskin, but likely in the NFL).
Ma'ake Kemoeatu - (I think everyone knows how I feel about this Hawaiin. I'll have major problems if he's on the 53-man roster THIS season).
LaRon Landry - (Shanahan is in love with Landry and I'd be shocked if an extension is not completed before New Year's Eve of this year. The guy is a workout warrior who plays hurt, oh, and is a Pro-Bowler. Dirty Thirty is making $3.715 in 2011)
Kory Lichtensteiger - (The Left Guard is slated make $555K this year. Anyone's guess if he stays beyond that. Ample backup, but I'd hope we'll have upgraded at Guards by then).
Interesting notes: Mike Sellers is on contract until 2015. (Vinny and Snyder gave him a 6-year $6.94 million contract in September of 2009. I guess $1 mil a year for a decent FB and 5-star special teamer isn't too bad).
