It's been long enough for me to doubt even well documented suggestions that the Redskins will take it easy this offseason. Surely they have reason to do so, as the team is now only 3.8M over the cap per PC, though I think he's counting 11M of Chris Cooley's salary as guaranteed which, as far as I can tell, has yet to happen (but we all know it will). Steve Czaban has an unusually coherent rant here where he discusses a number of topics, our proclivity for offseason wheeling and dealing to marginal success among them. First, though:
Here is the thrust of Steve's frustration with this team's ownership:
But, I think we now know the upper end result of this approach. It rhymes with 10 and 6.
Washington is approximately $7 million over the projected salary cap of $116 million and will continue to restructure deals. The Redskins will still struggle to match what other teams can pay, at least for high-end free agents.
I, for one, would welcome a quiet offseason. Question to reader(s): would anyone else?
