    Falcons | Kerney voiding final two years of contract
    Mon, 19 Feb 2007 17:33:44 -0800

    ESPNews reports Atlanta Falcons DE Patrick Kerney has voided the final two years of his contract. He will now be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Maybe the Redskins sign him?

          :D :D :D

          We weren't dumb enough to tag him :D

          He is a guy who gives 100%, but he shouldn't make over 7 mil a year (was over 8.5 tagging him), if that. Probably a little over 6 per.

            He still may be Franchised, between now and Free Agency. Though, I hope we don't. He isn't worth it. He is only marginal against the run, has regressed as a pass rusher, is thirty years old, coming off of an injury. If we commit that much cap space, via a tag, into him, I would be furious. I would rather let him go, sign a few key Free Agents on the O-Line, WR, DB, instead. While taking a Defensive End in this deep draft for that position.

                  If they don't tag him he will go to Denver IMO.

                    I agree.

                      Deadline near for Falcons DE Kerney

                      By STEVE WYCHE
                      The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

                      Published on: 02/20/07

                      Falcons defensive end Patrick Kerney plans to void the remaining two years of his contract — he's owed $13.8 million — next week, making him an unrestricted free agent, according to his co-representative, Rich Rosa.

                      Beginning today, Kerney has a week to opt out of his deal, which he is expected to do, although he probably won't rush. According to Rosa, he wants to work out a new deal with the Falcons, who drafted him in the first round out of Virginia in 1999.

                      The Falcons and the eight-year veteran have been working on a contract extension for months. Both sides said they want to work out a deal, but with a limited number of pending top free-agent defensive ends set to hit the open market, Kerney could be in high demand if he is not signed by the start of free agency on March 2.

                      "He wants to give them every opportunity to re-sign him," Rosa said.

                      Another reason for Kerney's lack of immediacy to void his contract could be to let Thursday's franchise tag deadline expire. The Falcons could slap the franchise label on Kerney, taking him off the market by tendering him a one-year deal of about $8.6 million — the average salary of the five highest-paid defensive ends in the NFL.

                      If Kerney voids his contract after Thursday, the Falcons would not be able to stop him from becoming an unrestricted free agent.


                      If it chose to franchise Kerney, Atlanta would consume much of its projected $10 million in salary-cap space for the 2007 season unless it releases some players and/or reworks the contracts of others. By working out a long-term deal, the Falcons could spread out the salary-cap implications of all bonus money over the length of the contract and retain financial flexibility.

                      Kerney missed the final seven games of last season after suffering a torn chest muscle that required season-ending surgery. The injury, from which he is expected to fully recover before training camp, ended his streak of consecutive games played at 105.

                      A 2004 Pro Bowl selection, Kerney (6 feet 5, 273 pounds) has 58 sacks and 270 tackles in his career.
                      Good, no franchise tag for Patrick Kerney. Either it's long term, or he goes. That is good, for both sides.

                        I wouldn't be surprised to see Kerney go to Washington. He's from Jersey, went to school at UVA. If he's willing to consider a move to a 3-4 OLB role, that would open things up a lot more, with the Jets perhaps taking a peek, along with the Browns and others. Used in situational purposes, I think he'd be solid.

                          I doubt they can afford him, last time I checked the Redskins were going to be over the salary cap for this season, depending on who they cut maybe though.

                            Well, first things first. The Skins will clear out room to resign Dockery and then make a run at Clements/London Fletcher-Baker.

                            The other thing to consider is that Kerney isn't likely to get a huge base salary coming off injury.

                              I could see Washington signing him even if they didn't have the money. They do that sort of stuff. But I don't see him in a 3-4 OLB role. He's a pure 4-3 end. I see him in WAS, DEN, SF(if they go 4-3) if he doesnt resign in ATL with a much less lucrative deal.
