Rich Campbell covers the Washington Redskins for The Washington Times.
The Redskins were believed to be at least $8 million over the cap after agreeing to terms over the weekend with five of their free agents and tendering a qualifying offer Monday to restricted free agent nose tackle Chris Baker.
Baker is free to negotiate with other teams, but the Redskins can match any offer. Banks will not be re-signed.
Sundberg has been a reliably accurate snapper since joining the Redskins in 2010. He made headlines last season when he played through a broken left arm in the Redskins’ season-opening victory over New Orleans.
Coach Mike Shanahan values Lichtensteiger's athleticism, especially in the screen game. At 6-2, 284 pounds, he is agile and moves well in space - ideal qualities for the zone blocking scheme.
Because Jackson is behind first-stringer Brian Orakpo, a former first-round pick, on the depth chart, a one-year deal would free him to seek more playing time next offseason.
When the Redskins negotiated tight end Logan Paulsen's new three-year contract, they told him they project him to continue as Fred Davis' backup
Instead of tendering Paulsen and Young a one-year qualifying offer, the minimum value of which is $1.3 million, the salary-cap strapped Redskins signed them to more cap-friendly three-year deals.
Redskins Pro Bowl special teamer Lorenzo Alexander intends to test the free agent market and does not plan on re-signing with Washington before 12 a.m. Saturday, he said Friday night.
Pashos, who will turn 33 in August, sat out the 2012 season while recovering from foot tendon surgery. Injuries have limited him to just 23 games since 2008.
Agents for players whose contracts expire at 4 p.m. Tuesday are free to negotiate with other clubs beginning at 12 a.m. Saturday. The Redskins must be under the salary cap by Tuesday afternoon.
The details of Smith's role remain unknown.
Fletcher, who turns 38 in May, said on Feb. 26 the continuation of his career depended on his health.

The Redskins were not expected to use either tag because doing so meant guaranteeing that player an expensive one-year contract.
