The Washington Redskins are a team that needs improvement in several areas to win in the beast that is its division. Being more than $5 million over the salary cap most certainly wouldn't leave them much flexibility this offseason, so some cuts or contract restructuring is necessary.
Defensive end Andre Carter and wide receiver Antwaan Randle-El have done their part, agreeing to contract extensions which are essentially pay cuts. Each player had a deal set to expire after 2012, but each will now run through 2015.
