CSN Washington dot com. -- to the king we get to what's always on his mind the Redskins star -- sheer. And I've been beating this to death -- level continue to talk about the of their nature of the salary cap penalty. But it was really harm the Redskins in a bad way. Have they been -- thus far. Tap in in a major way. I think vote that the thing that really sticks out to me was losing Lorenzo Alexander. You know when you're when you're evaluating. On a free agent. You wanna see what he gets the offers he gets from other teams right and if he just outrageous some you know -- if the numbers is just too big or bigger than what he actually brings the table you go good luck. Have a nice career. But I thought what he got the cards I mean that was in the realm of what he's worth. And you know he's -- he's a special teams captain he's the heart and soul you know with one -- of that locker room on the a lot of young guys look up while Lorenzo sex class act you know -- he's he's got roots in the community and they have to let him go for three million dollars guaranteed nine point five over and over three years I mean that's the kind of contract that you would expect the Redskins to to get a guy like that. He didn't have the money you lose a player like that and I mean yeah he has the intangibles. I mean that that's something that you're really gonna miss in that locker missed but it got us in the media especially because he was such a great. A organism to take a look at the NFC's take a look at who's called the who's gone on each one of these teams. Dallas guys -- -- -- the Redskins. Hasn't been a lot of movement for the that you -- these teams. -- up philly's gotten rid of a lot of guys now they brought in a handful seems like kind of a wash so far so. Has anybody really improved their position. You know I would say. Billy may be because I I did like some of the moves they made but I think the Redskins by retaining. The players that helped him get to the NFC east west Germany retain the core of that group are so far I think they've done well for for themselves you know one thing that's really funny about pro sports and he knows this as well as anyone. I mean chemistry and continuity are two things are overlooked a lot. And when your constantly changing things up -- we'll go with the capitals I mean -- new. For so long they were changing parts trying to get to that you get over the -- that stray and exactly and what would -- be done the -- unrecognizable now and the struggling the Redskins are keeping. Their own guys they're keeping those young guys who helped him you know I I. Get over that hump last year and I think that keeping that continuity is gonna -- Pay dividends next year for sure.
