    Arrington, Redskins headed to arbitration

    Arrington, Redskins headed to arbitration

    ASHBURN, Va. - As expected, the rift between linebacker LaVar Arrington and the Washington Redskins will have to be settled by an arbitrator.

    Arrington, who signed a nine-year, $68 million contract in December, contends the deal with the Redskins, which was put together quickly because of a salary cap related deadline is missing a $6.5 million signing bonus for the year 2006.

    The Washington Post, which reported the two sides were headed to arbitration in Friday's editions, said the original hearing was set for Sept. 21 _ nine days after Washington's regular-season opener against Tampa Bay. However, it will now be moved up to early next month.

    The three-time Pro Bowl selection said in March _ the month he filed the complaint against Washington through NFL offices _ that he would let the arbitration hearing play itself out and that working things out would be a patient, yet aggressive, process.

    ``The most mature thing to do is see where we can go with it,'' Arrington said at a March minicamp. ``That doesn't mean I'm going to be weak about it, but I'm willing to see what type of resolution we can get out of this whole thing.''

    Neither team representatives nor Carl Poston, Arrington's agent, returned phone messages.

    Redskins give OT Samuels HUGE contract extension (and somewhere, Pace salivates)
    by Nick
    Signing bonus of $15.75M largest in 'Skins history

    A week of tough negotiations, including several tenuous moments Tuesday night when the deal nearly fell apart, has concluded in the Washington Redskins reaching a contract extension agreement with left offensive tackle Chris Samuels.

    The five-year veteran, who has been a starter since his rookie season, agreed late Tuesday to a new seven-year contract worth $46.5 million. It includes a $15.75 million signing bonus, the largest in franchise history, and total guarantees of $19 million. Samuels will earn about $23 million in the first three years of the contract.

    The deal, negotiated by agent Jimmy Sexton over the past week, continues the upward spiral of contracts for offensive tackles. The signing bonus is the third-largest ever paid an offensive linemen, trailing on the $18 million in upfront money received by Jonathan Ogden of the Baltimore Ravens two years ago and the $16 million signing bonus awarded Seattle's Walter Jones last week.

    In terms of per-year average in the first three seasons of the contract, it is believed that Samuels is the second highest-paid lineman in league history.

    Even though it seemed certain over the last few days that an agreement would be struck that would grant the Redskins salary cap relief before the beginning of free agency on Wednesday, there were some tense moments Tuesday evening as the two sides haggled over contract language and dollar distribution. By signing Samuels to the extension, the Redskins will recoup $3 million-$5 million in cap room.

    Samuels, 27, was entering the final year of the contract he signed with Washington as one of the club's two first-round choices in the 2000 draft. He was due $6.5 million between base salary and bonuses in 2005 and carried a cap charge of $9.5 million. Team officials had been attempting to restructure Samuels' contract for more than a year.

    Last week, it appeared that reaching a new deal with Samuels would be necessary, since the Redskins needed cap room in the event they traded wide receiver Laveranues Coles. Even though trade negotiations continued on Tuesday with the New York Jets, the talks did not result in a trade and likely won't now.

    Roosevelt Barnes, the agent for Coles, told ESPN.com late Tuesday that it was "highly unlikely" that Washington will trade his client.

    Still, by completing the Samuels contract, the Redskins will be well under the league ceiling of $85.5 million with which each NFL team must be in compliance Wednesday morning. And the cap savings will provide the Redskins with some wiggle room in the event they pursue some veteran free agents.

    A former University of Alabama star, Samuels was the third prospect chosen overall in the 2000 draft. He has appeared in 76 games,...

    Redskins WR Rod Gardner heading to Carolina via trade

    Redskins deal Gardner to Carolina for future pick
    Wednesday, July 27, 2005

    ESPN.com

    After months of waiting for a deal, patience finally paid off for the Washington Redskins on Wednesday evening, as ESPN.com has confirmed the team has agreed to a trade sending wide receiver Rod Gardner to the Carolina Panthers for a draft choice.

    Without the trade, Washington would have released Gardner, a former first-round choice (2001), but a player who no longer fit into coach Joe Gibbs' plans. The draft choice that the Redskins will receive, presumably in 2006, was not immediately known.

    The deal is contingent upon Gardner passing a physical examination, and it is scheduled to be administered Thursday.

    Washington had made its intentions with Gardner known early in the offseason, when it granted permission for agent Joel Segal to seek potential trade scenarios. The Redskins also excused Gardner from all their offseason workouts.

    By dealing Gardner, the Redskins recoup his $2.097 million base salary, which was the highest on the team, and will use that savings to help sign its 2005 draft choices. It had been rumored for much of the offseason that Carolina, which was forced to release star wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad for cap considerations in February, was interested in adding Gardner.

    A former Clemson star, Gardner, 27, started all 16 games in each of his four seasons in Washington, catching 227 passes for 2,997 yards and 22 touchdowns. His best season was in 2002, when he posted 71 receptions for 1,006 yards and eight touchdowns.

    A big, physical receiver, and a prototype No. 2 wideout, Gardner has experienced some problems with inconsistency in the past, but was still regarded by several franchises as a quality player. Gardner became expendable in Washington when the Redskins traded for wide receiver Santana Moss and signed unrestricted free agents David Patten, Kevin Dyson and Jimmy Farris.
