The Redskins and Perry Riley appear to be getting nowhere in their contract negotiations. Will the Redskins have to overpay to keep him?
That leaves inside linebacker Perry Riley and it appears that there is some distance between the Redskins and Riley’s camp. There seems to be little chance that Riley will be signed before free agency starts on March 11.
What happens in modern sports is that free agent prices that teams have to deal with are set by their dumbest competitors. In the past, the Redskins have been among the not-so-smart teams setting high player salaries. Now, they are in a situation where they could be paying for the reckless spending of others.
