Scherff Signs (His Tag)

Chris Russell

Brandon Scherff didn't ever seem to be going anywhere, but according a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, that's about to be official. 

Scherff will count $15.03 million against the salary cap in 2020. 

The Redskins and Scherff can work together on a long-term deal before the normal deadline of July 15th or he'll play the sixth year of his NFL career on the one-year hefty price tag. 

The Redskins also have to decide how much money they want to spend on a guard, which is not considered a premium position. 

Washington has lost Ereck Flowers in free agency while signing Wes Schweitzer and Jeremy Vujnovich. 

They also have to try and figure out if Scherff, with a two-year injury history having missed 13 games over the last two seasons, is worth a four or five year deal at more than $13 million per year on average. 

Scherff is probably asking for around $15 million per season and maybe for a five-year deal. 

There's no chance that I would be willing to do that.

I am tired of seeing good linemen leave and that goes for Trent as well. In Trent’s case I have to say, let him go. Sign Kelvin Beachum and move on. In Scherff’s case, he is an elite player that wants to be here. Pay him 5 years at $15M because in 3-4 years, that will not be a top paid guard. Especially if the salary cap jumps by $40M as expected. HTTR!!!
