That's a lot of money.

Delighted about Allen Robinson to da Bears.

Watkins to KC and Keenum to the Broncos also good moves for those teams.

All things considered, Cousins has played his cards very well. With a fully guaranteed contract and two franchise tags banked he'll have made almost $130 million by the time his next contract negotiations come around (at age 32!).

The Redskins are total tits, though. They could have him locked in at 18 million a year for five seasons if they had any forethought.

Less than Cousins playing a blinder, his hand was being forced by unacceptable offers from his employers.

He has and I have no idea why the Skins didnít show more faith in him, they gave him a ďprove itĒ franchise tag, he proved it and they still werenít interested in signing him long term

Danny Amendols to the Dolphins

I'm just curious why the Redskins chose not to make him long-term? Is there some intangible they reckon he doesn't have? I think he's missing that x-factor which is why the Redskins let go.

Your assumption that the Redskins are a well enough run organisation that they would need a good reason is amusing.

Jimmy Graham to the Packers, who have cut Jordy Nelson. Pats would seem a sensible landing spot for Nelson with Amendola gone.

Bradford in the desert confirmed for one year, 20m.

I'm just wondering how a self-confessed Rossie (computer whizz I think) is so clued in to the ineptitude of a SuperBowl winning franchise.

Iíve followed college and pro ball for a decade. If you donít know how inept the Redskins are under Snyder you have not been paying attention.
