Wow, huge deal for him. I wonder if the rumored trade to New England would still be in the works with that contract?

Of course not..............


BTW, that deal is awful.....I can't believe Rosenhaus allowed himself to get rolled like that............

What's awful about it? Portis is the highest-paid RB in the NFL right now, according to Pasquarelli.

The Skins are apparently going to turn right around and deal Portis to New England for their two first round selections and Ty Law. Actually wouldn't mind seeing New England do that. Sure, Portis is a very good back, but they're giving up a lot for him.

The article also says that Damien Woody may already have a deal worked out with Buffalo. That, I don't like.

That was written before the contract extension was announced (I read it this morning). Portis isn't going anywhere.

Also, FOXSports has us in the running for Woody. Right now, things are too up in the air to take any one source as gospel.

The last 3 years of the contract are so heavy that you can almost guarantee that he is cut in year 5.........the only thing that is attractive is that MASSIVE signing bonus............

I know this isn't a fins related issue, so you can move it but thought it was worth sticking in the main forum so other could see it as it would affect any potential trades for Ogun etc. considering the amount they are fronting for Portis.

lol, sorry if it was posted already...I haven't seen it all day.

On another note, Palmer beat out Kitna for the Bengals starting QB but Kitna says he'll restructure to be a backup for next season......so he won't be a veteran option to bring in for us either (my apologies if that's already on the board as well).

Do you really think Snyder has put his checkbook away already?

I love the way Gibbs just goes for the gusto.. He is turning that team around and quickly.

The offense will rock with Brunell, Coles and Gardner at WR and Portis at RB.

No if only we could fix our offense that fast.....

remember football salary isnt guaranteed. if Portis keeps on performing the way he has for 8 yrs then the Skins actually got a good deal in the long run.
