Need to know: Five potential cap casualties who could interest the Redskins | Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
Here is what you need to know on this Thursday, February 6, 13 days before the NFL Combine. Nickel coverage Spotrac.com came out with a list of 30 possible salary cap casualties from around the NFL. Here are five from that list who may interest the Redskins.
A look at some of the big future contract decisions that the Redskins need to take into consideration when planning their free agency gameplan.
The draft/bargain shopping approach is the first thing the Redskins need to copy. The Redskins need to do what they can to stockpile picks, and that includes both trading back and trading some players like perhaps Kirk Cousins and Roy Helu Jr. Six draft picks just isn't going to cut it, not when they really need to rebuild 60% (30+ players) of this roster. The Redskins also need to look for bargains in free agency. It's easy to say the Redskins have a lot of cap room and should spend big, but with so many holes they can't fill everything. Also if they tie up a lot of future money to 2nd and 3rd tier guys, what will happen when Trent Williams, Ryan Kerrigan, Alfred Morris and RGIII hit free agency in the coming years? The Skins will have to cut them and will be right back in the cap hell they have always been in.
Free agency is the Super Bowl for agents.
