Skins Could Save a Bundle Cutting Some Vets

From: ProFootballWeekly

The Redskins could not have asked much more from their 2004 free-agent class of CB Shawn Springs, LB Marcus Washington, DT Cornelius Griffin and DE Phillip Daniels as these four played critical roles in helping the team finish with a top-10 defense in four of the five seasons since then but it’s almost guaranteed that one of those players, and very likely more, will not return next season. Joining the list of potential salary-cap cuts would be DE Jason Taylor, who had a disappointing season in Washington. Cutting those five players would save the team more than $20 million in cap room, but the defense almost certainly would take a massive hit in productivity as a result.

    Besides S. Springs i can’t site any great moments those other guys have had. ZERO pass rush by them.

  3. Jim says:

    These guy were great (when they were younger and healthier) but now they are often injured and on the decline. And that cap room is much needed. Unfortunately, this is a business and it’s time to trim the budget.

    That being said, I would love to have any of these guys back at a reduced price.
