I wonder if Skeletor used vaseline on Gibbs or just enjoyed the ride while dry boning the Hall of Famer....
What a LOPSIDED trade...
I wonder if this has anything to do with the Skins being in Cap Hell the year after next...
or perhaps they're getting ready to deal Lavar Arrington, and need another LB in Round One.
Trading/Cutting Lavar this year would be a cap hit in excess of $12 milThey are married to him through next year
OK, he'll be gone next June then....Per PFT.com:
LAVAR WON'T LAST BEYOND JUNE 2006
Even if the Redskins have decided that the sun is setting on their relationship with linebacker LaVar Arrington (or vice-versa), the raw contract numbers show that there's simply no way the 'Skins can afford a divorce in 2005.
Arrington's cap number of $5.54 million in 2005 would skyrocket by $12.165 million if the 'Skins tried to trade Arrington this season, or if they were to dump him before June 1.
After June 1, the 'Skins would carry a $5 million cap charge for 2005, and a cap hit of $12.165 million for 2006.
The more likely outcome is that the 'Skins will dump Arrington after June 1, 2006, when the cap hit would be $5 million in 2006 and $7.165 million in 2007. Because the team wisely finagled a July 15 due date for Arrington's $6.5 million 2006 roster bonus, the team will be able to push him out the door without incurring a cap charge of $12.165 million in 2006.
There's a catch, however -- as a league source told us Monday night, the 'Skins would be required to take the full $12.165 million cap charge in 2006 if the collective bargaining agreement is not extended, since so-called dead money cannot be pushed into the uncapped year of 2007.
If, on the other hand, the 'Skins were to keep Arrington, his cap number would rise to $11.5 million in 2006, although the team has the right to guarantee the $6.5 million payment, thereby spreading the cap consequence over the final four years of the deal.
