This I don't understand. The guy was drafted in April. WHY do they have to stay up "all night" and negotiate? Why do these things always have to go down to the wire? I realize agents wait sometimes to see what other teams are offering, etc, but, they should already have a good idea about that. Seems like a good agent would have all this taken care of LONG before the deadline. I'm glad he's signed, sealed, and delivered, just don't care much for the drama.

Don't mind me guys. Just a little cranky this morning!!

Default Re: Brown signs

The Agents want one thingy...more clients. This is the kids deal for the next five years. If the agents don't press for the max under the current system, they look like fools three years down the road. No one wants a fool representing them. The agents stick this year was the umcapped year in 2010. No telling how high saleries will go that year. These guys, the class of '08, will miss that. Tring to slot off of what Matt Ryan got was tough. He got rediculas money...ludicras money ? Got gaurds making sixty million...twelve million a year, front line cover coner backs 9.8 million for a one year frachise tag year.....lot of money for untested rookies to be making if they are paid congruently.

Nice work by the front office. If this guy is supposed to be protecting our QB from game 1, I dont want him missing ANY practice time.

Brown was taken to be the franchise's left tackle....twenty spots too soon....I think sloting under these circumstaces is out the window. Only ones had Brown slotted where we took him were the Chargers, who were best player available & Gibbs. See if the terms are closer to William's, another franchise OLT or Flacco's, one of five QBs in camp.

20 slots to soon? Then you say the Chargers were going to take him with best player available, so which is it. He was best player available or 20 slots to soon.

Tony Ugoh was drafted in the second round to be the air appearent franchise LT by the colts so does it mean because that is what they envisioned his salary should be different than any other lineman drafted in the second?

Look at what Long got versus what Ryan got, that right there says the QBs are paid differently. OL are not paid as much as QB, that is fact.

Nothing spurs activity like a looming deadline. Agents know that the teams want their draft picks in camp, so they figure they will get a better deal closer to the report date. Plus, the last thing an agent wants to do is mis-slot his client; all it takes is one bad deal to destroy an agent's career. So they are inclined to wait to see what the guys in similar positions drafted near them got.

I don't care when the deal gets done so long as the player is present and ready to go when camp opens.

Awesome to get him in on time. He's going to need as many reps as possible if he's going to start this coming season. Good job all around FO. Now it's up to the players and coaching staff.

Default Re: Duane Brown Signed

Where a Player was 'believed' to be drafted is completely irrevelant when he actually gets drafted. If we knew a certain player was "a 3rd round player" but drafted him at 26... he's going to get paid #26 pick money.

If the complaint is that we drafted him too soon, that's our fault, not the players. We can't use that in negotiation to give him less money. I understand the idea on this but in contract negotiations it would hold ZERO ground.

Man you've been bagging us to take a LT for the few years then we took one twenty slots too early? What was our other options? Move up and get one of the other LTs? I knew once that KC/ Vikings trade went down our chances at landing one of those guys was gone.I thought I heard the 49ers would've loved to pair him with Staley for bookend tackles as well. I think out FO did a great job of getting more draft picks and moving back to get a guy would can fill the void at LT for a while. He wouldn't have been around when we picked again in the third.

Yeah that where I heard it. They said he was an hour late due to him signing his contract, but when he arrived he jumped right in to the first team. I'm assuming Salaam was upset again...
