RICKY JEAN-FRANCOIS RUMORS

Offseason Champs No More?

I hesitate to say the Redskins have reverse-engineered their approach to team building, learning from nightmares past, but that does seem to the case under new GM Scot McCloughlan. A recap of their moves through the opening days of free agency: *Depth D-lineman Ricky Jean-Francois for three years, $9 million ($4M guaranteed) *Pass-rushing D-lineman Stephen Paea for four years, $21...

Washington Redskins sign DE Ricky Jean-Francois

In Ricky Jean-Francois’ first trip to the open market in two off-seasons ago, he was given a 4-year, 22 million dollar deal by the Colts, a very weird move considering RJF had played just 715 snaps in 4 season with the 49ers from 2009-2012, after they drafted him in the 7th round. He did flash, grading out above average in both 2010 and 2011, but he didn’t deserve that kind of...

Redskins sign DL Ricky Jean Francois

The Washington have dipped an early toe into free agency, signing DL Ricky Jean-Francois, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts, to a 3-year deal worth up to $9 million, but with only $4 million guaranteed. Including incentives, it’s possible for the deal to reach $11.25 million. The Colts released Jean-Francois on Monday, two years into his 4-year $22 million deal, which he signed...

Release of RJF Exemplifies Colts’ Free Agent Struggles

The bloodbath of cap-saving cuts continued on Monday with the release of defensive end Ricky Jean Francois, a move that wasn’t completely expected, yet not surprising. Jean Francois was a charismatic locker-room presence who was never short of a quote for the media. He was a leader on the defensive line despite just arriving in Indianapolis in 2013.

Colts release Ricky Jean Francois in salary-cap move

  The Colts have released defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois in a cost-cutting move. Indianapolis had signed Jean Francois to a four-year, $22 million contract in 2013.

Jean Francois started 23 games...

Indianapolis Colts: projected starters for 53-man roster

Yes, I know it is way too early to think about, but why not? Let’s fast forward to the fall of 2014 and predict who will be starting for the Indianapolis Colts.
