Free Agent Signing Period Should Not Be Complicated For Skins " CBS DC
The free agent signing period that starts tomorrow shouldn’t be that complicated for Washington after left guard Kory Lichtensteiger, who was going to be unrestricted, and outside linebacker Rob Jackson, tight end Logan Paulsen, long snapper Nick Sundberg and fullback Darrel Young, all of whom were going to be restricted, agreed over the weekend to remain with the Redskins.
NFL players’ union willing to take joint legal action with Redskins over salary cap penalty
According to one person with knowledge of the union’s thinking, the NFLPA would continue to welcome a joint legal effort with the Redskins on the salary cap case. "The real question is why [the Redskins] didn’t seek to join in some action by the players," the person said. "After all, the players’ theory is that [the Redskins] didn’t violate the rules and were punished for not agreeing to the conspiracy…. I’m a bit at a loss why they wouldn’t. At the very least, if you were [the Redskins], wouldn’t you cooperate with the players’ case?"

"If you look at everything that we represent, you'll find that the Washington Redskins have a positive image.
Lichtensteiger back, but for how long? - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
The length of the deal, five years, was somewhat surprising. We don’t know the financial details and it is hard to really judge just how committed the Redskins are to keeping Lichtensteiger as their starter without knowing them, especially the amount of guaranteed money. If the guarantee is $10 million (unlikely) they are figuring on him being the guy for at least the next four years. If it’s $1 or $2 million (also unlikely) his job security beyond 2013 would have to be considered tenuous. The reality probably is somewhere in the middle so we’ll have to wait to find out.
