The Washington Redskins are expected to shatter the NFL payroll record with projected commitments of about $112 million in coach Joe Gibbs' first
season back with the team.
The payroll estimate, which can be calculated with relative accuracy now that the draft is over and the Redskins' training camp roster essentially
set, is 10 percent higher than what the NFL Players Association considers the current record, the Denver Broncos' $102 million figure in 2001. Such
spending by Washington exacerbates the cap difficulties the club will face in 2006 and beyond, but Gibbs said in an exclusive interview with The
Washington Times yesterday that he isn't ignoring the organization's future.
