Free agency began yesterday at 4pm as Redskins linebacker and captain, London Fletcher, hit the market. It has officially been 32 hours and the team hasn’t reached a deal with the Pro Bowler. If you take a second to reflect on Fletcher’s stats as a Redskin and his role in their defense, you find yourself wondering why this guy hasn’t been re-upped while the team is signing every wide out from San Fran to Indianapolis and re-signing guys like Adam Carriker? London Fletcher is not only the leading tackler in the NFL, he’s an irreplaceable part of this defense that the Redskins can ill-afford to lose.

Here are Fletcher’s numbers as a Redskin courtesy of

Not a single game missed, or tackle for that matter. Fletcher is as solid as they come and should be re-signed. Speaking of re-singing 59, there has been a mass movement on our beloved twitter. #ReSign59 is the hashtag/trending topic all over the twitterverse from the average fan to Mr. Anthony Armstrong himself. Take a look.

Nobody can be sure that the Redskins or Fletcher himself are even aware of what’s going on, but if you have a twitter account do your part and send out a post with the trending topic/hashtag #ReSign59 so the fans and team can get their captain back!
