London Fletcher’s return to Washington is not likely to come at a reduced rate. The Redskins view Fletcher as their defensive leader and will pay him that way, even if some wonder about how long he can play at a superior level.
The Redskins owe Fletcher $5.5 million for the 2013 season, his cap number is $6.2 million.
Mike Shanahan said that the Redskins would not ask Fletcher to restructure his deal despite the teams current lack of salary cap space, according to the Washington Post.
Last year Fletcher led the team with 139 tackes and five interceptions. Fletcher also had three sacks.

Hopefully this year that potential can be fully realized with the return of Adam Carriker at left DE to split time with Jarvis Jenkins. Stephen Bowen, Barry Cofield...
Cornerback and safety will be the focus for the 2013 NFL draft with the Washington Redskins. And if you disagree, then you weren’t watching the games last season.
The Skins were 30th in passing, they released DeAngelo Hall, and E.J. Biggers is too inconsistent to say he’ll be a difference maker. Biggers was a starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who were 32nd in pass defense...
The Skins won’t be considered off-season champs this year It’s April 2013, and for Redskins fans this has been an off-season unlike any other we have experienced in recent memory. There has been no BIG free agent splash thanks to the imposed 2 year 36 Million dollar cap penalty the NFL inflicted last year. So the perennial “off-season champs” have been left to sit and watch...

Robert Griffin III reportedly bought a painting of himself at a collector’s showcase over the weekend, which is whatever. The news, however, did prompt D.C. Sports Bog to compile a collection of paintings of RGIII.

Brian Orakpo and Alfred Morris are the latest in a long line of Redskins to shill for D.C. area hoopdie palace, Eastern Motors. Appropriate for Morris, as he famously drove the type of bucket you could get at Eastern during his rookie year.
