The Redskins were crippled by a surprising cap penalty in 2012, but this off-season they can plan for it. But what exactly is the team planning? Coach Mike Shanahan is hinting that owner Dan Snyder hasn't given up the fight.
“Well, I can’t answer that at this time so that means we’re still involved in it. Yes, we’re still involved in it. When I can speak about it, I will speak. But at this time, I can’t. I think that answers your question.”
The Redskins may be challenging what remains from the $36 million dollar sanctions imposed on the team for contractual actions taken during the uncapped year of 2000.
The 2013 salary cap won't be going up much over $120.6 million dollars per team. The team took half the hit last year (%15) and if nothing changes, face an off-season once again short %15.
Shanahan and General Manager Bruce Allen need to address their own free agents like tight end's Logan Paulsen and Fred Davis, linebacker Rob Jackson, guard Kory Lichtensteiger and fullback Darrel Young, just to name a few. What the team does from there largely depends on how much money is left.
Between the draft and free agency, the team figures to address right tackle, cornerback, safety and possibly even another quarterback.We'll dive into all this in detail in coming weeks, but here are a few prime time names on the "wish list".
