Default Where's Mr. Robinson

He was suppose to have an easy agent to deal with and progress was supposidly being made after the Babin signing. But no deal has been posted so far. At Espn's web site they were talking that Gallary was possibly going to sign and might be one of the 1st of the top tier. They mentioned that a number of players might well be hold outs, because of the money situation this year. Its getting awfully close to that time when people need to be in camp. Were we too generous with Babin?

I expect the signings to go crazy over the weekend. But, you never know....with Robinson being confirmed a starter, he may be pitching that he should recieve more pay. Time will tell.

Dont worry about it, we still have a little more then a week. Top picks dont usually sign until 1 to 3 days before camp starts because they make the team a little more nervous so the team might be willing to give a little more to get the player in camp on time. D-Rob will be there when training camp begins. If I remember right, AJ signed a day or two before camp started....

Is it possible we have been to generous with Wade and others and now have a salary cap problem? We haven't signed as many players early this year as we have in the past.

Total non-issue. We have plenty of cap space to sign all our rookies.

The one little report on that was pure internet rumor/speculation prior to the numbers coming out. Babin's contract was a very moderate increase from Johnson's (#27 2003) last year. No need to get ansy at all. So far only Babin and Wilfork have signed. No need to worry until Robinson is one of the last 5-8 players unsigned.

Note: If team exercises option for 2009 by paying "second tier" bonus of $1,275,000, base salaries reduce to $432,500 (2005); $548,000 (2006); $735,500 (2007); $887,000 (2008); $1,038,000 (2009). Total: six years, $8,459,500 or five years, $8,072,000. Salary cap charge: $972,667.

4. SS Glenn Earl (Notre Dame/No. 122 overall): Unsigned

6a. CB Vontez Duff (Notre Dame/No. 170 overall): Unsigned

6b. FS Jammal Lord (Nebraska/No. 175 overall): Signing bonus: $75,600. Base salaries: $230,000 (2004); $305,000 (2005); $385,000 (2006). Total: three years, $995,600. Salary cap charge: $255,200.

6c. LB Charlie Anderson (Mississippi/No. 200 overall): Unsigned

7a. LB Raheem Orr (Rutgers/No. 210 overall). Signing bonus: $40,000. Base salaries: $230,000 (2004); $305,000 (2005); $385,000 (2006). Total: three years, $960,000. Salary cap charge: $243,333.

7b. WR Sloan Thomas (Texas/No. 211 overall). Signing bonus: $39,750. Base salaries: $230,000 (2004); $305,000 (2005); $385,000 (2006). Total: three years, $959,750. Salary cap charge: $243,250.

7c. QB B.J. Symons (Texas Tech/No. 248 overall): Unsigned

obviously this needs to be updated as Symons signed today. Its interesting to see who hasn't signed. I would assume Symons has the same figures as the other 7's with the difference being the signing bonus.

I would also conclude that Duff and Anderson would have the same figures as Lord, except for the signing bonuses.

It will be interesting to see what Mr. Robinson wants and gets. The odd man out could be Earl.
