Washington's cap hell
They have been prorating SB's for years. Here is one casuality. Your productive #2 wr has to be cut.
From pastabelly's tipsheet:
"Some silly comments from Redskins' officials this week, contending that, if they don't release wide receiver Rod Gardner before camp starts, they still don't want him at practice. The guy is under contract and, as such, the Redskins can't deprive him the right to earn a living. Excusing him from offseason workouts is one thing. Trying to keep him out of camp, where he has the contractual right to participate, is another. Conclusion: Gardner will be released before the team reports, in part because Washington needs the cap savings it will earn to sign its pair of first-rounders, and about four teams will pursue him as a free agent. ? The Broncos, who are overstocked with defensive linemen, are shopping fourth-year tackle Dorsett Davis in trade talks. A third-round choice in the '02 draft, Davis is a talented young player at a position that is difficult to fill, but injuries have limited him to only 14 appearances in three years. He's missed two full seasons, the 2002 and 2004 campaigns, with injuries. ? Former Seattle first-round wide receiver Koren Robinson worsened his lot Thursday by allegedly violating a court order to abstain from alcohol. Robinson was released by the Seahawks after a troubled tenure, and multiple DUI arrests, and, according to police, showed up this week to serve a one-day jail sentence, but with alcohol on his breath."
Far and away from the sound and the fury. . .
