No. 12 is in the last year of the six-year, $60 million extension/renegotiation he signed in 2005 and making sure he doesn't play out the final year of the deal should be priority No. 1 for the Patriots this off-season.



Manning to a seven-year, $99.7 million contract with $34.5 million in bonus money. Coincidentally, Manning's contract is also up after the 2010 season.



Brady's deal looks completely anachronistic in comparison to recent QB contracts.

With a year left on his deal, Peyton's brother, Eli Manning, received a seven-year, $106.9 million deal, which was actually a six-year, $97.5 million extension, last August. That same month Philip Rivers, who was entering the final year of his contract, signed a six-year, $92 million deal. The average annual value of Eli Manning's deal is $15.27 million. Rivers's deal is $15.3 million. A more pertinent number for Brady might be the $16.25 million value of the new six years of Eli Manning's deal.

Even Matt Cassel makes more than Brady now.

Not good news for the Texans and Schaub's negotiations

Agreed, but it makes the approx. $27 million he's due over the remaining three years of his contract (including the $10 million option bonus) look downright thrifty on the Texans part.

True. Can't help but to cringe at what his deal could be if he posts 3 more years of what he did this year though.

It's the damn draft's fault. All the highly successful vets want (and deserve) to be paid more than their rookie counterparts who have proven nothing on a professional field.

Each year new records are set by the massive amounts of guaranteed money that these rookies are getting. If a guy who has never even played a snap can get $60 million then shouldn't the top players in the league be getting double that?

Time for the rookie salary cap to be put in place.
