Pro Bowl special teamer/linebacker Lorenzo Alexander isan unrestricted free agent and the Washington Redskins are over the salary cap. Those two facts being the case, it should come as no surprise that contract negotiations may prove difficult. Alexander has rejected Washington's first contract offer and it now seems likely he will test the free agency waters next month.
“They offered me a deal but obviously at this point I’m not going to jump into it and sign right away,” Alexander said. “There’s a lot of stuff going on. At this point we’ll play the waiting game and be patient and see what’s the best thing to do for myself and my family. Hopefully that’s with the Redskins . I don’t expect them to outbid anybody but from what I’ve done and sacrificed and what I’ve earned on the field, obviously that’s going to bring a certain dollar amount. There will be interest from other teams. But you really know when free agency starts what your value is.
@CoachBo82 @octotron Zo is a great teammate and ST player. Been a good story he whole career. But he turns 30 this May.
@c4man5282 Jackson is better in run support and pass coverage. Bring him in on 3rd down to spell Fletch or Riley, let Rak and Kerrigan rush
@c4man5282 completely agree. Dude did just about everything the team asked of him. It's rare you find a guy who can play G, DT, OLB, and ILB
@CoachBo82 very hard to say…really like Zo but he isn't getting younger and Shanny seems to like younger players which is a nice change.
@c4man5282 hard to say this, but Zo can be replaced. Might mean we can keep Rob Jackson and move him to ILB
@c4man5282 no argument from me. Just saying turning down a Bruce Allen offer hasn't worked out well in the past.
@Octotron @DCProSportsRep I sure hope you're wrong about that. But still the Redskins have time To offer him another contract.
