Some interesting numbers on last year's salaries.
It's kind of sad to not see a single Texan paid top 5 money at any position.
Did you accidentally overlook our cornerback Dunta Robinson who was accidentally part of that top 5 list?
Not really. AJ for instance was getting top 5 money when he signed his deal but as new deals come along the older ones bump down the list. Williams was the same way. OD and DeMeco were both offered top 5 money as well.
Wow, that's really really sad that the Chargers were the 31st ranked rushing team last season and were paying TWO runningbacks top 5 money.
Dunta was overpaid! I think it's more of a testament of the great work Rick Smith and Dan Olsen are doing. Typically not breaking the bank. Olsen is one of the best with contracts and the way they're structured. In any event, our players' salaries are increasing and they're guys we're not getting rid of Mario, Andre, Schaub, etc. Most of those guys signed contracts years ago as opposed to the newer salaries. As each year goes by, the contracts get larger and larger.
Is it me or should prior franchise tenders not count towards the calculations of the new franchise tenders? Almost seems like paying off a credit card with a credit card.
I see what you're saying and agree to an extent. The thing though is that its a legitimate 1 year contract. I think the means in which they got to that agreement is a little sketchy but both parties sign it.
One thing that makes it tricky though is how the contracts are structured. For example, Nnamdi Asomugha has one of the "best" contracts a player could have but he isn't in the "top 5". So players are negotiating their long term contracts based on other players long term contracts but this measures only 1 year. I guess it all evens out over time though, its more of a running number (average) than anything else.
I find the financial side of this industry fascinating.
I think the author made a mistake on Nnamdi as he made about $14.5 mil last year and will again this year.
Union's pitch for capped 2010 shot down
The owners are serious about maxamizing their profits.
Led by bob McNair.
This pissing match is going to get ugly.
That's just peacocking. Everyone knows there are very few free agents this off-season.
I was actually referring to the whole NFLPA vs owners thing in the CBA mess........even though owners hold most of the cards.
The NFLPA should ask this ? in negociations
What would Gene Upshaw do
This wont happen and there will be a lockout.
De is a virgin in these kinds of negociations and is trying to make a name for himself. Instead of doing what's best for the players and the game. IMHO
Separate names with a comma.
