Mario's Agent: Yeah, yeah. Freak injury. He's already working hard (on Madden) to come back more explosive than ever. So... how much are you going to offer?
Rick Smith: Well. You know. We're kinda hard up against the cap. We're going to have to let some guys walk.
Mario's Agent: Yeah, yeah. But you've got some dead weight on that roster. You could cut Eric Winston and Andre Johnson and Matt Schaub and Arian Foster and you'll have plenty of space for my boy, Mario. They're all slackers who really don't contribute much at all.
Rick Smith: You know we had a great defense without Mario.
Mario's Agent: Yeah but you won a playoff game without Schaub.
Rick Smith: Or Mario.
Mario's Agent: So we're thinking about $200,000,000. That's not a hard number. Just a starting point for the negotiations.
Rick Smith: Click... buzzzzzzz....
Mario's Agent: Mario! They're not even making you an offer! They're just letting you walk!
Dude, that seriously had me crying from laughing so hard!!!
I might just rep you for that. Maybe.
