So much for the contentions from some Redskins officials that the spendthrift franchise would exercise a degree of restraint on the opening day of free agency.
 

Restraint lasted only about one-half day for owner Daniel Snyder. The Redskins have begun the refurbishing of their defense by reaching agreement in principle with unrestricted free agent Cornelius Griffin, a tackle who spent the first four years of his career with the New York Giants.

And there was more to come. The Redskins have agreed to a six-year, $30 million deal with Seattle Seahawks cornerback Shawn Springs, who also gets a $10 million signing bonus.

Griffin, 27, will sign a six-year contract worth $25.5 million that includes an $8 million signing bonus. Washington could announce the deal on Wednesday afternoon.

A second-round choice in the 2000 draft, Griffin has appeared in 60 games and started 45 of them. He has 191 tackles and 12½ sacks and he is noted for rare athleticism for a 300-pound player. The irony with Griffin is that the former Alabama standout might have had his best season as a rookie, when he posted five sacks despite no starts.

Springs will replace starting cornerback Champ Bailey in the secondary.

With Springs going to the skins, did the deal actually go through yet for Portis?

So what does everyone think of the players the skins have got or are getting?
