[NFL] Free Agent Signings


Recommended Posts

Post News on Free Agent Signing here...

to start...

So much for the contentions from some Redskins officials that the spendthrift franchise would exercise a degree of restraint on the opening day of free agency.

Restraint lasted only about one-half day for owner Daniel Snyder. The Redskins have begun the refurbishing of their defense by reaching agreement in principle with unrestricted free agent Cornelius Griffin, a tackle who spent the first four years of his career with the New York Giants.

And there was more to come. The Redskins have agreed to a six-year, $30 million deal with Seattle Seahawks cornerback Shawn Springs, who also gets a $10 million signing bonus.

Griffin, 27, will sign a six-year contract worth $25.5 million that includes an $8 million signing bonus. Washington could announce the deal on Wednesday afternoon.

A second-round choice in the 2000 draft, Griffin has appeared in 60 games and started 45 of them. He has 191 tackles and 12? sacks and he is noted for rare athleticism for a 300-pound player. The irony with Griffin is that the former Alabama standout might have had his best season as a rookie, when he posted five sacks despite no starts.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday began the rebuilding of one of the NFL's poorest offensive line units by signing versatile 12-year veteran Derrick Deese to a six-year contract.

The deal for Deese, who was released by the San Francisco 49ers earlier this week, could be worth as much as $15 million if Deese remains a starter, and it includes a $2.5 million signing bonus. Deese will earn a total of $5 million, between the signing bonus and base salaries, in the first two seasons.

Bucs officials view these as the most viable seasons of the deal and Deese will have to still be a starter in 2006 to maintain the $2.5 million average.

Next up in the Bucs' offensive line refurbishing job is unrestricted free agent Matt Stinchcomb, who is expected to arrive in Tampa on Thursday or Friday to visit. A former first-round pick of the Raiders who spent the first five years of his career in Oakland, he is ticketed to start at left tackle if the Bucs can sign him.
