Though Jason La Canfora at Redskins Insider says we're effectively there. He checks in with a big post on an otherwise quiet week, so head over there and read up. How did we get to below the cap?
Jon Jansen is an unusually tenured Redskin in an era that rejects long standing ties between players and teams. He was drafted in 1999 and has started an incredible 112 games in that span, including ever regular season game from '99-'03. Although he's played a full season as recently as '05, the injury bug has not been kind, limiting him to zero and one game in '04 and last year respectively. 2004 was an achilles injury that required surgery, last season he broke his ankle. I think he's a phenomenal o-lineman and believe our pass protection depends in large part on him returning healthy in '08.
