Not necessarily, he earns $5mill average over the next 2 years and has $2.4million left in guaranteed overall, so that'd save us $3.8 mill a year overall. Not terrible.

This is just the kind of crap I am talking about. Jones did not pay himself. Guess who did? Maybe Jones is not football smart or he just is not good enough, Why is he still here? Football is not going anywhere and the Texans day will come. I have moved on already.

Jacoby Jones having Texans fans show up at his house really puts the rest of the sane fans in a negative light. That sucks and I hope he is okay. However his play yesterday was really costly to the Texans and I hope he is not returning punts if he is on the roster for some reason.

The amount of hate people show athletes is disturbing.

Are you actually going to tell a person that you hate them and they should die simply because they did not entertain you?

And in the end, that's all they are-- entertainers. Get over yourselves.

Where are you getting these numbers? His entire contract was 3 years $10.5 mil with $3 mil in the form of the first year's salary guaranteed. He can be cut with no cap hit (the guaranteed money has been spent) but he wouldn't earn close to $5 mil next year even if he stayed.

Can't believe idiots are sending Jacoby death threats. People, we are human beings, not savages. Get a damn grip.

You know, I'm less angry at Jacboy than I am at Gary's constant babying and excuse-making he has done for this guy. Jacoby has been coddled, and it came back to bite Gary in the ass. As Gary himself would say, "it's on me."

Yes, Gary, it is.

I thought it looked a bit skewed so maybe the info is unreliable. I'd assumed they might have worked some cap magic to remove the guaranteed from the first year.

Yes, Gary, it is.
Yep. There is an old saying - "You reap what you sow" - and it works for both individuals and organizations.

While Jacoby is the target for his stupid decisions, I can't help but look at the organization that has continually kept him on the payroll and rewarded his mediocrity with millions of dollars. That kind of coddling culture needs to change if this team is going to take it to the next level.

He''s always been a high risk / high reward type of player . Having said that the Pats had Welker returning punts against the Broncos . Why ... I assume it's because he's a sure handed smart player .

Just to play devil's advocate for a moment, has there been one credible report that this stuff actually happened to Jacoby? Chron.com has nothing and they've already posted up two pieces on him.
