Skins have free agency decisions to make

CSN Washington dot com. As a free agency typically a big time of the year for the Redskins this season though maybe not so much. -- Redskins insider Tarik el -- joins us now -- what can we expect. Usually not very much if they are not able to recoup some or all of that eighteen million dollar cap penalty that the Redskins are facing for a second straight year now they're also -- three million dollars over the cap. Right now so they've got a lot of work to do sometime between now and Tuesday the opening of free agency just to be able to do business. Side there are a number of ways they can go about getting under the cap. They didn't outright release a player processes DeAngelo Hall. Or Santana Moss those guys had -- pits and there you know that they're getting later in their career. So they could have some painful decisions to make such -- that they can also restructure contracts but something this administration and Bruce Allen hasn't loath to do because really all it does is it. He'll -- clear that money for busier but it pushes it on to a deal and onto the cap in following years could create a big problem later on down the line. Paris has some big names that were used -- -- with the Redskins just might not be around here next season. So when it comes to players that they will be looking at and it's free agency market what are some of those guys well I was informed by a source earlier today that the Redskins are closing in on a contract -- right tackle Tony Pashos now logically for the Ravens many years ago I think a lot of you might remember him from those days he's 32 years old. So they're not going to be shopping -- sacks is going to be more like shopping at goodwill this is a guy who's probably not going to be a starter he's probably gonna reveal reserve -- Did not play football all last year he was recovering from foot surgery. But you know those are the types of players the Redskins are going to be going after to fill some holes so the front office -- to get a little bit creative there and by the way there's actually nothing wrong. With could well we would like to say. So that's what also that -- when the draft comes around for them well I mean the holes are most likely going to be safety and cornerback. If they aren't able to address those in -- -- with no better situation with the caps are probably not going to be able to the good news for the Redskins is this is a very deep year for defensive backs they should be able to find the safety. Maybe even a quarterback was able to step in right away and start and make an impact. Are right so maybe as in year's past there's been quite exciting during free agency may be a little bit more low key this season but still. Some maneuvering and -- misty -- thank you very much heart we appreciate it. CSN Washington dot com.
