    I wonder if these guys actually talk like this in negotiations.

    In regards to that initial offer, that is insulting.

    Me "JJ we want to resign you, but heres the deal"

    Watt "Ok i'm listening"

    Me "First off we cut the entire D-Line, since the rest of the guys did nothing last season anyways"

    Watt "Yeah thats reasonable"

    Me "So we will now start running a 1-5, and in return we will pay you 1 gazillion dollars for 10 years"

    Watt "Hell yeah sounds good.....Wait What.....Is that even a number"

    Me "Watt i am Rick smith, you know that i know that you know that i know what i'm talking about"

    Watt "Wont that hurt our cap numbers just a tad"

    Me "Cap numbers, hell no we have plenty of ball caps made over seas by little kids working for .05 a day, trust me kid i know what i'm doing"

    THE END

    $70M, with $12M guaranteed is insulting? Lower than JJ's value on the free market, but I don't think it's insulting.
