unfortunately, what he's worth to this team and what this team can afford to pay him are 2 different things. The cap penalty may not be holding it up entirely, but its a major issue.

Its not holding it up on the agents/players end. I'm sure it is for the Redskins.

Fletcher is playing here this year

not having an agent is a bigger problem than the cap space


he's going to get the money - he's not going to get the years
Minds are like parachutes, they only work when they are open

Robert has to make a huge effort to show he's got what it takes to be a future great QB - we need the real RG3 not the hyped version

Hail to the Redskins

This arbitration hearing is holding this up. He should get a 2-3 year deal that is basically a series of 1 year deals.

If I'm the Skins, I give him around $5M per year guaranteed with some escalators for (i) leading the league in tackles, (ii) making the Pro Bowl, and (iii) the defense finishing in the Top 5.

Total deal would look like 3 Years $25M but be more like 3 Years $15M

He has no agent?

I know he fired one but, I assumed he picked up another.

Yeah, no wonder its taking a while.

I guess since he's had something like 5-6 contracts in his career, he feels he doesn't need one. He's probably right as long as he hires an attorney with knowledge of the NFL to review it. This should be a pretty straightforward deal for him.

Guarantees for skill and/or injury & determining his Likely To Be Earned and Unlikely To Be Earned Incentives should be the only real points of contention.


If I'm the Skins, I'm only guaranteeing him for Skill. Not Injury at his age. And, I'd tie some of his incentive based money to the overall performance of the Defense. Everyone knows he's a tackling machine. I want to see him lead this defense to the Top 5.

For what it's worth... Just saw this tweet:
https://twitter.com/granthpaulsen/statu ... 5266967552

Hugh Douglas says that he saw Fletcher in Orlando and congratulates him on a new deal.
Sweet!
May #21 never be worn again by another Redskin but may every Redskin play like they are wearing #21 on their backs.

The tweet was premature; no deal's been done yet. Take a look at Hugh Douglass' later posts.

Not a problem . . . we are all dying to know when that deal will get done. I nearly reported that tweet myself when I saw it. :)

Actually he fired Drew Rosenhaus and hired agent Ben Dogra from CAA.
