View Full Version : How cheap will Patrick Ramsey go for?

Without an extension of the collective bargaining agreement, this could be one of the bloodiest weeks the NFL has witnessed, with more teams cutting more players at this time of the year than the league ever has seen.
And no team is in worse shape than the Washington Redskins, who some league insiders believe will have to cut anywhere from 15 to 20 players.
Those numbers will depend on how many players will be willing to restructure their contracts, but one NFL general manager who reviewed Washington's salary-cap situation wondered how the Redskins will even be able to field a team.
For starters, the Redskins are expected to release defensive backs Matt Bowen (http://nfl.com/players/playerpage/187497) and Walt Harris (http://nfl.com/players/playerpage/3594), defensive linemen Renaldo Wynn (http://nfl.com/players/playerpage/4580) and Brandon Noble (http://nfl.com/players/playerpage/4024), wide receivers James Thrash (http://nfl.com/players/playerpage/1859) and Taylor Jacobs (http://nfl.com/players/playerpage/395990), center Cory Raymer (http://nfl.com/players/playerpage/4136), and kicker John Hall (http://nfl.com/players/playerpage/1705). Even with all those moves, the Redskins still will be significantly over the salary cap, requiring them to release even more players from their roster.
No team is rooting for a CBA extension any harder than Washington. Otherwise, the Redskins team next weekend will be considerably different from the one they have this weekend.

Not all the Redskins moves will be cuts. At least one will be a trade.
The Redskins also are expected to trade quarterback Patrick Ramsey (http://nfl.com/players/playerpage/302216) this week. At least three teams have expressed a serious interest, and one should be able to put together an enticing enough package to lure away a player the Redskins once drafted in the first round.
The Redskins are not expected to get a whole lot in return for Ramsey, due to the fact that there are so many quarterbacks expected to be on the free-agent market. But they will get something for a team that soon could have many holes.

I've seen anywhere from a 3rd to a 5th. I'd perfer a player for player deal.

The 'Skins could use another WR, wonder if they'ld be interested in Booker?
