I bet that was a huge frickin cap hit.

I thought I read that Arrington PAID Washington 4 million to become a free agent. Atleast that's what Mortensen said.

Looks like he bought his own way out


LaVar Arrington has agreed to pay the Washington Redskins over $4 million in cash to get out of his contact with the team and become a free agent. The Redskins have therefore placed Arrington on waivers.

A team source said that the move would have been made irrespective of any delay in the waiver deadline Sunday evening.

Over the last few days, the Redskins have asked several veterans to restructure their contracts so that the team could get under the salary cap. Arrington was the only Redskins player who refused to rework his deal, the Associated Press reported.

Arrington had a $12.045 million cap number and was due a $6.5 million roster bonus. By taking the money, the Redskins will save approximately $4.2 million with his release. They entered Sunday $17.7 million over the salary cap.

In January, the NFL Players Association filed a formal complaint seeking disciplinary action against Carl Poston, Arrington's agent, for "neglect" in negotiating Arrington's contract near the end of the 2003 season, union and league sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The "neglect" had to do with Arrington's $6.5 million bonus.

Arrington did not see much playing time early in the 2005 season as he worked his way back from offseason knee surgery. The former Penn State standout became disgruntled over his diminished role, though it is unclear whether those feelings have played a part in the current negotiations. The three-time Pro Bowl linebacker regained his starting job against Philadelphia on Nov. 6.

Arrington played in 11 regular season games for Washington in 2005, recording 47 tackles. He also played in the team's two postseason games, and had 12 tackles.

If Lavar Arrington is used right in the right defense he can be a great player, he just doesn't fit what Gregg Williams is doing.

I'd rather have Gregg Williams....

Oops... too late never mind.....

03-06-2006, 12:52 AM
Nope. I'd rather have TO. I'm not even kidding. At least TO would play within the framework of the team.

I still say we pick up La'Roi Glover and Peerless Price

interesting guy from Penn St. OH WAIT! maybe LJ can give this fella a call and work on some recruiting ... for our LBs core that lacks passion

03-06-2006, 02:08 AM
Itd be nice to have another Penn St guy on the roster. :)

03-06-2006, 02:10 AM
no way, we need dline help too badly, and secondary is a bigger priority than LB. it'd be nice, but just doesn't fit.
