Comments Off on James’ deal has two years left

I made a mistake last night.

Without checking, I reported something about the Washington Redskins that came directly from the team’s primary beat reporter for the largest paper in Washington. I should know better than that and I apologize to my readers for doing so.

Erasmus James has two years left on his rookie contract, not one as was state here yesterday. He will make $695,000 this year and $1 million the next.

That avoids the unpleasant potential scenario of James rehabbing with the Skins, reviving his career, and then cashing in on the free agent market in 2009.

    another daryl gardener ??

    how did that turn out for him ??

    my guess is that if james looks like he is truly back from injuries and playing well this year, blache will push for a multi year contract extension during the coming season. it would be a solid move for both parties because james is always going to have a rep as a brittle ball player even if he gets through this year okay

    the pone fly is the the effect of the possible uncapped year.. who knows how long james would be willing to sign for anyway ?
