Topic - Rock Cartwright
Rock Cartwright always has been in Washington coach Joe Gibbs' core group of true Redskins even when he hardly played except on coverage teams in 2004 and 2005. But Cartwright, who has played for the Redskins longer than any current player except offensive tackles Jon Jansen and Chris Samuels, snapper Ethan Albright and fellow backup running back Ladell Betts, might be in his final days in the District.
"I want to be here, but my agent [Drew Rosenhaus] and I haven't heard anything from the Redskins," Cartwright said. "The last time I was a free agent [after the 2005 season], I hadn't really played much so no one was going to make me much of an offer. I've been doing a good job of returning kicks for two years and I want an opportunity to run the football. I know that's not going to happen here."
"I would love to stay, but it's up to the front office," said Cartwright, whose salary cap figure this season is $680,000. "[NFL punt return leader] Roscoe Parrish just got [$4.35 million] guaranteed [in a three-year, $10 million deal] from Buffalo. I don't expect to match that, but I want something similar, some type of security."
