Bruce Allen is trying to re-create his version of his father's "Over the Hill Gang" in the Redskins backfield.
The news that Washington signed Willie Parker leaves only one conclusion: Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson, or Parker should get cut before Week One.
PFT's Mike Florio confirms that Parker can earn "up to" $3.1 million, but we haven't tracked down the guaranteed money. We suspect most of that is tied up in incentives. Johnson has only a $800,000 base salary.
We don't have all the details yet, but we suspect the Redskins will be able to drop Parker or Johnson painlessly. Cutting Portis seems less likely because $6.43 million of his salary is guaranteed. (We also think he has more left in the tank if motivated. He should be now.)
Both Johnson and Parker struggle on third downs and don't play special teams. It would be crazy to keep them both.
I didn't even know he was available?
