Happy Birthday, Daniel Snyder. I finally understand you now.

Today is Daniel Snyder’s 50th birthday. (h/t to Rick Snider for the reminder.) To know the Redskins era of Mr. Snyder’s formative years is to explain a good deal about his idea of building a team.

Griffin’s contract runs through next season. The Redskins have until next May to declare if they are going to pick up his option year for 2016. That would pay him around $16 million.
