Redskins | The End Near For Some

Tue, 20 Feb 2001 22:00:26 -0800

The Washington Post reports as the day approaches when NFL teams can begin to release players, February 22, some Washington Redskins players are on standby. OL Keith Sims expects to get the axe as does Greg A. Ray the agent for OL Tre Johnson. If the two offensive linemen are release then the odds of WR Michael Westbrook or S Sam Shade being released decreases. The Redskins are set to clear about $10 million to $13 million of salary cap room. By releasing Johnson, Sims, DE Kenard Lang, WR Irving Fryar, OT Andy Heck and OL Derek Smith, the team would save $6.5 million against the cap. Sims hoped his paying through pain last season for the team would affect its' decision this season, but he knows football is above all a business.

Redskins | More On the Cap

Tue, 20 Feb 2001 00:15:56 -0800

As a follow up to previously reported stories, the Washington Post reports Washington Redskins OL Tre Johnson and Keith Sims will take physicals for the team on Tuesday. As reported earlier, it could be the first step towards releasing the two players although coach Marty Schottenheimer said the team is merely gathering information before making cap-related decisions. Agent Steve Weinberg confirmed he was contacted by the team about restructuring RB Stephen Davis' contract. Weinberg was not sure a deal would be reached. The first day for releasing players is February 22 and Johnson's agent expects his client will be released then. Other Redskins players, including WR Irving Fryar, S Sam Shade and OTs Andy Heck and Derek Smith remain potential candidates to be released.

Redskins | Team Notes

Thu, 15 Feb 2001 01:02:16 -0800

The Washington Times reports Washington Redskins OG Tre Johnson could be a salary cap cut soon. WR Irving Fryar, OG Keith Sims and OT Andy Heck reportedly may be gone too, either by retirement or being released. Veterans Johnson and Fryar may stay if they take big pay cuts, while Sims (Achilles' injury) and Heck look to be gone. The departures of Johnson, Fryar, Sims and Heck would save the Redskins nearly $5.4 million in cap costs. The team could possibly release DT Dan Wilkinson after June 1. CB Champ Bailey, DE Marco Coleman, S Sam Shade and RB Stephen Davis could be candidates for contract restructurings. In an attempt to lower their cap number the Redskins could also sign WR Michael Westbrook, TE Stephen Alexander or DE Kenard Lang to new multi-year deals.
