Redskins have cap issues
Question of the Day
Daniels called Griffin “strong as an ox” while advocating for his left side defensive line partner’s return. As for his future, Daniels isn’t worried even though he’s the team’s oldest starter.
“There are a lot of teams out there, and I know I’m better than a lot of guys playing my position,” he said. “Why worry about something you can’t control? I’ve done everything they’ve asked. I’ve moved inside on third downs. I’ve switched sides [after end Andre Carter was signed in 2006]. I won’t have surgery, so I can start working out a lot sooner than I did this year. Age is not a factor. I’ve brought a lot to this team. If I don’t fit their plans, they’ll let me know.”
If the Redskins are concerned about Griffin’s cap number, he’s willing to renegotiate as so many veterans have over the years.
“It could be my last year here, but I’m really not thinking about it,” said Griffin, who started every game in 2007 for the first time in his four seasons in Washington. “I’ve played pretty well this year. We’ve got the two young guys and me. I’ll listen if they want to talk about redoing my contract.”
The other Redskins with big cap numbers are offensive linemen Chris Samuels, Jon Jansen, Casey Rabach, Pete Kendall and Thomas (all of whom will be at least 31 next season); Carter; running backs Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts; receivers Santana Moss, Antwaan Randle El and Brandon Lloyd (who won’t return); and middle linebacker London Fletcher.
