CSN Washington dot com. There yesterday had a great great opportunity to sit down with view -- park in chick. Actually had a -- with you guys have talked about the Redskins and everybody's got their own little crystal ball what's gonna happen and you have all the numbers. Figured out you can check up the numbers CSN Washington dot com so. We're now. A week closer since we last talked to has anything to. You know probably things have changed in this building around us but nothing has has has gotten out about what. About what they might do. I'm sure they have plan a plan B plan C depending on if they can. You know maybe still pull out pull off a -- Marion and get some of this the salary cap money that the league. Unjustly took -- I think I think most would say yes and -- -- ready get ready excusing his young people are egg on Twitter all the time why have they done anything my -- done anything. You know there's really -- to realize how important don't release a player. You send an email. You know restructured contract he sent -- -- I mean it's not. Now some in real time consuming and so there's no point in. If there's any small chance of getting some some salary cap relief and -- with a different plan and not having to -- somebody or not I haven't pushed. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Are a couple specific questions for rich in any got to go to CSN Washington dot com and check his stuff out of me it is in depth that's all the money. Anton has really wasted a free agency coming up next week London Fletcher. -- last week and we it was a exclusive interview about the way Charlie with the coach Mike Shanahan on what some of the other exclusive interviews here around town we were the only wants to talk to. -- some pretty curtains. You like those orange curtains -- this way yeah. So but he talked about -- -- Fletcher now what are find out here because you would think that if we don't find out soon. It would be to the detriment of the organization. Yeah I think you almost have to find out what that. With this cap number about six million dollars you don't think you have to find out before free agency starts to deal -- with the money -- -- You know that does can make can be a big difference about a 3.4 million dollar cap savings are not that can be difference between keeping Fred Davis -- Keeping the render -- -- around sooner or not so. You know I think I think is you know pretty much I think by next Monday I think they need to to get the yes or no from from London. Santana Moss -- name has been mentioned quite a bit about the only goes brought it up and everybody knows his history led the team. Touchdowns as a receiver this year carries a big cap number or could that be were negotiated. It could go out it makes a bit different is in the last year of his contract so that kind of makes it hard to do a traditional. You know -- wouldn't converting so. Salary to signing bonus type of thing he could take less money. They could maybe you know -- -- contract trick at a couple of portable years on the and that kind of in lower his cap number this year. -- or it's you know it's I wouldn't rule out him you know not being with the team on its hard to you know is going to be 34 years old next year. And maybe you say -- able you know he's not good he's not going to be the guy furious that next super ball. So you know let's let's get things get somebody else and -- and getting going and save them money and give Santana good handshake and say thanks. What I haven't talked about at all and obviously the injured Robert Griffin the third hasn't been the focus over the last couple of weeks because of free agency continues. To rehab and show that improvement we know it's gonna make. But your third quarterback. You don't have a third quarterback in reality it if it had been a normal year with the Redskins had money what they have already resigned Rex Grossman. I don't know what I'd say if have been normal year with without a knee injured Robert Griffin the third they might go to Mike Shanahan likes to go with two quarterback traditionally. You know so he probably just go rip coming cousins but obviously with Griffin's -- situation. They're gonna wanna third I think that probably will end up being Rex Grossman. Simply because in 2014. They're not gonna wanna carry third quarterback. So why didn't somebody get them learn the system give him wraps everything like that. To get taught everything was probably only going to be around for a year anyway you might as well just keep -- for a year. He knows the system Robert trust him as far as taking advice Kirk trust him as far as getting advice from them. And you know let him you know let him do this year and then then look at situation again a year from now. Menace so much to consider -- and eat it got these restricted free agents we showed a list yesterday we had -- restricted restricted we really talked about just about everybody but this group of restricted free agents. Players -- -- young Logan Paulsen Chris Baker among those. What happens to them. That rob Jackson don't know for him if that -- along yeah yeah yeah the ice I think well what you got to try to do because you know if if you. Put that put it tender on him that's one point three million dollars in the salt cap room -- three -- mean eaten up right there so you wanna give them. Which wonders try to didn't sign for two or three years. You know was something whether whether it was and with the signing bonus in there to kind of smooth out the smooth out the -- itself I guess what they're trying to do it I would think they're trying to do with all these guys I think they have until. -- we have to Monday maybe even to maybe in the free agency deadline -- to put it tender on somebody's cell. I think that's what they wanna wait till last minute see if they can renegotiate something before playing this tenders to these to these players. And the clock is ticking no doubt about thank you rich appreciated and I go home and start shovel okay. -- CSN Washington dot com.
