Redskins Need to Think of the Future With Their Signings | Fanspeak Washington Redskins Blog
Now with the way the cap works the Redskins can go back to their old tricks and backload deals and use gimmicks like voidable years to cram as many big name free agents onto the roster. The problem with that is gimmicks like that are a big part of the reason why the Redskins will have about $20 million in dead money this year that they can't spend. The Redskins also need to remember that going forward they have some important contracts coming up and they don't want to be in a position of having to low-ball or not resign.

Coaching Change Winners - Offseason Low Down -
2. Robert Griffin III, QB, Redskins When Week 1 of the 2014 rolls around, Griffin will be roughly 21 months removed from his knee tear. And instead of the Shanahan & Son offense built around the zone-blocking run game, he’ll be getting the plays from new pass-happy head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden is coming off a season in which he allowed Andy Dalton to attempt 586 passes (36.6 per game). That resulted in 4,296 yards, 33 touchdowns and No. 5 ranking among fantasy quarterbacks. RG3 is at least twice as talented as Dalton, boasting superior arm strength and mobility. Gruden plans to utilize that athleticism, which should be back near 2012 levels for 2014 Opening Day. Add up Gruden’s penchant for the passing game, Griffin’s health and the plan to let him run wild, and we have the makings of a big bounce-back season.

Offseason question: Should the Redskins re-sign Chris Baker?
Keeping Baker in the fold gives Washington a player with experience in their system at multiple positions, and who has proven himself capable of starting. And the Redskins shouldn’t have to break the bank to do so. The Redskins last season re-signed Golston to a three-year, $3.3 million contract, and likely would seek to sign Baker to a similar deal.

The Big Book Of Black Quarterbacks
This project started with my dad on Thanksgiving. He was reminiscing about Doug Williams, who in 1988 became the first black quarterback to start and win a Super Bowl. All these years later, he was still proud of Williams, whose name to some may be that of a half-remembered player from the past but to millions of others remains a powerful symbol of progress.

Looking at Free Agent Pass Rushers - Over the Cap
The Elite Free Agents Brian Orakpo- In his two healthy seasons Orakpo has posted PRP’s of 11.6% and 11.4% which shows remarkable consistency and is going to place him in the top 10 every season if he can keep that production level up. He hasn’t had the off the charts great season like Robert Quinn has had the last two years, but he should be right at the top of the list. He also makes some impact plays against the run. While Orakpo will likely not reach the top of the OLB market (Clay Matthews at $13.2 million) he should certainly push for the Tamba Hali range at $11.5 million a year.
