What Do You Know From Stupid?

Ladies and gentlemen: the top ten dead
money contract* salary cap hits of the 2009 NFL season:

1. Terrell Owens WR DAL $9,675,000
2. Dre' Bly CB DEN $9,450,000
3. Ken Lucas CB
CAR $8,330,000
4. Cory Redding DT DET $7,333,334
G5. ibril Wilson S OAK
$7,000,000
6. Marvin Harrison WR IND $6,400,000
7. DeAngelo Hall CB OAK
$5,833,334
8. Derrick Dockery OG BUF $5,400,000
9. Anthony Weaver DE HST
$5,400,000



I was actually reading this list, thinking to myself "Oh my wonder! There aren't any Redskins on this li-" until I saw number 10. Brandon fucking Lloyd. $5.3 million.

And yes that's right, Brandon Lloyd is still accounting for $5.3M against the Redskins cap, despite not being on their roster since the 2007 season. This results from the salary cap rule that applied the signing bonus acceleration from a termination to the next year's cap, if that termination occurred after June 1 or was designated as a post-June 1 termination despite occuring prior to that date. For example, if a player had $4M in total signing bonus proration left on the remaining 4 years of a contract (meaning $1M of proration in each year), and that player was released after June 1st, then $1M of proration would remain as dead money in that year and then the remaining $3M would accelerate into the next year.

Due to 2009 being the final capped year, this post June 1 rule is no longer in effect; therefore, when a player is released this year all of their proration in future years accelerates into the current year.


Is it any wonder, then, that our team is owned by the same man whose "business management" skills ran Six Flags into the ground?

    Brandon Lloyd?!?!

    I never knew that he cost that much against our salary cap!

    How come we didn't just give away draft picks and allocations like we usually do?
    j/k

    i guess I can take comfort that Dan Snyder did not blow it this time and sign T.O.

    Although, I hear that Jay Cutler may soon be on the market, and maybe Cooley may be dumped.

    Any thoughts on that? How confident should the team be with Jason Campbell as the starter?

    Personally I'd like to see Brennan get some more time, that kid's got some skills to back up that rocket arm of his

    Jason LaCanfora, is that you?

    Not bad for a Redskins Insider, but I think your postings for the WashingtonPost could give a little more attention to the Draft.

    Speaking of which, check out this link from Steinberg's Sports Bog:

    Gil is taking down his blog!

    BY FAR, the greatest sports blog in the history of DC athletics.

    I guess I can always rely on Unleash the Namoff! via Twitter or Ovie's Russian Language blog

  9. "...agree that Jason La Canfora should be fired, per se. A reassignment would be in the best interests of everyone. With circulation plunging at the Post, does the newspaper really want to alienate those who subscribe mainly for the Sports page by continuing to give inches to a writer with an axe to grind against the city's most popular team?"

  12. anonymous- i'm unaware of anyone using the handle 6.0 ever posting here, so to answer your question- probably nothing?

  13. I actually like JLC, though his public feud with Vinny Cerrato has affected his job and I do think it has been unprofessional of him.

    I also can't understand why people think Jason Campbell is not good enough. granted, he's not flashy but if we had a line to keep him upright & an actual receiving corps, he might fuck around & make the pro bowl. how soon we forget that Campbell set the team record for most consecutive passes without an interception. surround Cutler with these skill players and his numbers would surely drop from his output in Denver.
