I made a mistake last night.
Without checking, I reported something about the Washington Redskins that came directly from the team's primary beat reporter for the largest paper in Washington. I should know better than that and I apologize to my readers for doing so.
Erasmus James has two years left on his rookie contract, not one as was state here yesterday. He will make $695,000 this year and $1 million the next.
That avoids the unpleasant potential scenario of James rehabbing with the Skins, reviving his career, and then cashing in on the free agent market in 2009.
