    I guess he can afford a new phone now...

    At least he's out of the AFC. Let him soften up the Giants OLine and squash Eli's melon twice a year.

    This just made it a lot harder to extend Wilfork and Seymour. With Wilfork the Pats have some leverage, if 2010 is uncapped I believe Wilfork is an RFA.

    If I was Wilfork I would be looking for a contract for at least $50M.

    I could see Seymour being traded well he still has value.

    So much for a recession. Maybe Snyder will apply for federal bailout money. :D

    It seems to me that the Redskins are flirting with violating both tampering and salary cap laws, not to mention the obvious salary cap hell that they are embracing.

    It's funny how they always spend lots of money in free agency since Snyder bought the team and how far have they gone? I think it was a wild card weekend loss to Seattle 2 years ago...

    I agree. Even if we can't keep both, I hope that we at least try to keep Wilfork. A good nose tackle is hard to find and he's one of the top NTs in the league.

    Absolutely. I couldn't see Wilfork agreeing to a long term deal beforing seeing how Haynesworth set the market. He will get something like 6 years/$60M with $30M guaranteed. Unless Seymour wants to stay in NE, I can't see keeping them both after 2009, though I hope we find a way.

    I wonder if anyone will even mention the obvious and well publicized case of tampering that went on here. The Redskins flaunted the fact that they were going to sign Haynesworth to the point that Haynesworth was already doing sit down interviews in DC.

    As for this contract, I think this will mean that Seymour is gone after this season. He is going to want to be paid and the Pats aren't going to give him what he wants. At least that is what I think. Unless Wilfork has a deal in place and they can franchise Seymour.

    for starters, maybe the pats will get career years out of the 2

    I don't believe either has had the past 2 season the way haynesworth has had

    both will expect good $$, but I don't believe that either will be looking to set a benchmark

    the pats are 67M under the cap for 2010 and 105M under the cap in 2011 (assuming there will be a cap).........the pats are in great position to keep whoever they want and I believe they will keep seymour, wilfork, and mankins

    Haynesworth is a game-changing, impact player and worth that kind of money in today's market, I guess. But with Snyder's track record of a nearly total lack of correlation between FA Dollars spent and On Field Results, I wouldn't be getting too excited if I were a Washington fan.

    Certainly takes the Skins out of the Cassel Sweepstakes, if they were ever really in it.

    I agree with the poster who observed that this increases the challenge of keeping Seymour and Wilfork. The more I think about it, and assuming that the NFL comes out the other end in decent shape with maybe a couple of weak franchises relocated, I think that the Pats are one of a handful of teams that could really benefit from an uncapped 2010 at this time, especially if the 2010 roster is somehow "grandfathered" into 2011 and 2012 if some form of cap returns.

    Does the salary cap not pertain to Washington or what? I don't get how they sign these huge FA contracts every year.

    I think Jason Taylor will have to go - Or they won't be able to sign their Draft Picks.

    Hey Jason, hop on a Southwest flight at BWI and I'll have my dad pick you up at PVD and drop you off at Gillette.

    A Hall of Fame "Foundation tackle" is impossible to find but once a decade, for one team. You guys are truly daft. Haynesworth will be cut in three years.

    Deus and all - I gott's a question.

    Washington had a reported $8.1 in Cap, Albert and that worthless POS D. Hall will eat all of that - All things being equal (no cuts) they are at the cap.

    Now the draft rolls around and they need to sign their picks, how does a team do that?

    Man, I thought it was nuts 9 years ago when the ol' hillbilly Favre and Drew Bledsoe got 10-yr, $100M contracts from GB and NE, respectively. But they were franchise QBs (or at least the teams thought they were at the time ;) ). Now a DE gets that much for 7 years?!

    And hasn't Snyder learned anything over the 10 years he's owned the team? When he first took over he put together that quasi-Pro Bowl team and still couldn't get anywhere.

    Course as Chick McGee pointed out on The Bob & Tom Show this morning, "He stomped on the face of a Cowboy, so you know he was born to be a Redskin."
