I'm with you, I would start at about $3 but I couldn't go above $4.5 at the very most. And that's him holding my family hostage.

Free agent ILB Lorenzo Alexander says he hopes to re-sign with the Redskins, but that their intial offer was "not close" to what he's looking for.
Both sides want to get a deal done, while Alexander says he's willing to take a small hometown discount. "Iím willing to take less for the Redskins, but they have to be close. They canít be way off." A special teams linchpin, Alexander played 308 snaps on defense in 2012.
NFL.com's Albert Breer reports the Steelers have cleared $5 million in cap space by restructuring ILB Lawrence Timmons' contract.
Timmons was due "just" $5.375 million in 2013, so it would appear his salary has been chopped down to the veteran's minimum, with the rest of the money being converted to a bonus that will be pro-rated over the final four years of his deal. Per Breer, Ben Roethlisberger is next in line to restructure.
