Redskins Still Trying to Get Back Veteran LB London Fletcher

The Redskins remain intent on re-signing veteran linebacker London Fletcher in free agency even though the two sides have not been able to work out a deal so far, Coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday.

“I’ve said this from day one: London is a team leader, a great player, and we want him back,” Shanahan said. Contract negotiations with Fletcher and his representatives have continued, according to Shanahan. “All I can say is we want him and there are conversations ongoing,” Shanahan said at the NFC coaches’ breakfast at the annual league meeting. Shanahan declined to directly address the issue of whether the Redskins’ salary cap hit has affected the team’s negotiations with Fletcher or other free agents.

  1. Maybe Fletcher should contact his union rep about why he isn’t getting the salary offer he wants. The rep can explain to him how adding a few million to the Buccaneers’ cap is helping him get rich playing for the team he lovers.
