Just amazing.....
As a former college and high school center, I say to you, who do think clears the way for those 1 TD's a year. Specially in Seattle where they had the most overated running back in the league. Anyways about ARE, I can't blame him for going for the money, and I thank him for everything hee did for the Stillers, but he pretty much lied about it not being ll about the money. I say BS, man of God my ass. If he says it's about supporting his family, I am able to support my wife, kid, two dogs and a cat with what the emilitary pays me, and we even have some pretty nice stuff. This is just pure greed.

Who know though, maybe this time next year we will hear John Clayton telling us all about the the Redskins winning small reciever formula. As much as I would like to see Dan Snyder trip into a bear pit, maybe he is actually on to something here. He has a bunch of small quick guys, who may compiment each other. My bet is againt it, but I have been wrong....a lot LOL

BTW USA 3 - JAPAN 3 in the bottom of the 7th.

"Washington and Randle El's agent, Fletcher Smith, on Sunday finalized a six-year contract worth $31 million that included $10 million in bonuses."...........

And that's one of the reasons why the Skins have been unable to win a Super Bowl.

Question, would you take 41 million dollars over a six year span? I'm just curious. You call it greed, I call it a very smart financial decision on El's part....lol. Stupid on Mr. Snyder's part though.

Good for ARE - if I am a Redskins fan it confirms my team has NO financial discipline - Redskins obviously let Arrington walk for reasons other than $$

God appeared to ARE in the image of Ben Franklin

Damn how could you turn down that kind of money? They over paid big time! But hey way to go El.

My last contract at work was just barely over $350,000, and I was ticked, El has boat loads.

Hmmm. I dont know how to respond to this. He was decent but only really worth anything on punt returns, and of course trick plays. Other than that he was never that great, if Wilson can play like he did in the play-offs(mainly against denver) all season, then we'll be better off without ARE.
