just saw on NFL Network........for a "conditional" 6 Round pick
6th round pick? Washington is so bad. They paid this guy best safety money(till Reed got adeal) . 1 yr later..traded for conditional 6th
I hope the Skins get more stupider and draft Leron Landry at # 6 and keep him away from Miami at # 9.
Maybe he will be a good fit in Chicago because of the Lovie Smith factor.
Are the redskins really this inept????
Dan Snyder needs 2 pull the plug on that over the hill has been... aka the coach.
He needs to pull the plug on himself.
He is actually a very astute businessman... just a lousy NFL owner.
It goes without saying, one of the worst free agent signings in NFL history. Not a bad player at all, but a terrible fit for a team with Sean Taylor at the other safety.
That's some solid ROI there.
I wonder what the cap hit is for the Redskins in terms of dead money with the reworked contract?
Seems like this was making the best of a very bad situation for both sides - Archuleta got his money upfront from the Skins, and cutting him on the existing contract would have been a HUGE cap hit to swallow - but it was clear he wasn't going to be playing a lot there either.
So he agrees to rework his contract to ease the hit for Washington, still gets a pretty decent payday from Chicago, has all the signing bonus from Washington still, and might actually get to play and revive his career in Chicago.
Let this be a lesson to players who take the highest amount of money in the future when its just a very very bad match. Sure they get a big payday, but it can kill a career.
how is this bad for Washington? they got something for a guy they wanted to get rid of.
signing him in the first place was a mistake, but what's done is done. you can't undo the past, so make the best deals going forward.
Sure, they are at least recouping something on their terrible investment, but it's bad because they made a terrible investment and are selling Archuleta for two cents on the dollar.
I honestly don't know what I would do if I were a Skins fan. It must be maddening. And just think, Gibbs will likely retire in a year and they will have to watch the whole horrific 8-8 cycle start all over again.
