Default 'Skins lock up Arrington

Call it a green Christmas for Washington Redskins star linebacker LaVar Arrington.


Arrington on Friday agreed to an eight-year contract extension that league sources described as "a monster." They said it will elevate Arrington into a "very elite" pay bracket.


According to the Washington Post, the deal is worth about $60 million, including around $20 million in signing bonus money. Arrington will receive $15.5 million immediately and the other $4.5 million in two and a half years, according to the paper.


The four-year veteran -- one of Washington's two first-round selections in the 2000 draft -- is expected to officially sign the reworked contract by Friday evening, and details may be forthcoming at that time.


The deal is expected to make Arrington, who only two weeks ago rejected Washington's original contract overtures, one of the highest paid defensive players in league history.


Arrington, 25, was named to his third straight Pro Bowl berth last week and is regarded by Redskins management as a cornerstone player. The former Penn State standout leads the Redskins in tackles and, while not as dominating as a year ago, has performed at a very high level.


In addition to ensuring Arrington's future with the team, the new contract also provides the Redskins with much-needed salary cap relief for 2004 and beyond.


Arrington was scheduled to earn a base salary of $6.36 million in 2004. He also was due a roster bonus of $1.5 million next spring, and was to represent a total cap charge of $10.672 million. It was to have risen to $10.869 million in 2005 and to $12.013 million in 2006.


ESPN.com reported that the proposal rejected by Arrington two weeks ago was for seven years and worth more than $50 million, with a signing bonus of about $14 million. The club said those parameters were not accurate.


Before the new deal, the Redskins had about $74.15 million committed to next year's cap. Teams were apprised earlier this month that the spending level for 2004 will be around $79-$80 million. Washington continues to pursue contract extensions with cornerback Champ Bailey and offensive tackle Chris Samuels.

Who in their right mind, sober or not on drugs would sign with the skins for that long of a contract?
