    agreed to 6 year extension worth over 68 mil with 26.5 mill in guaranteed cash. Is that fair market value. I don't think so. I think that NY jet gave their QB more.

    If Brady agreed to the extension, doesn't that automatically mean it's a fair offer to him? Here are the contract details:

    He'll earn $31.5 million over the next 2 years ($20 million more than if he had played under his old contract). That's not fair? Who are you, the 3rd Poston Brother? ;)

    It doesn't have to be fair. He wants to WIN so its SMART. He knows they aren't going to give him a peyton deal and i dont think he wants one.

    Let's face it INDY aint going anywhere anytime soon b/c they can't afford any D.

    I know if I were him that I'd take less money to play for the proven best team in the NFL right now. If they hold together long enough he'll easily be a first ballot hall of famer. Besides, 68 million isn't exactly chump change.

    Look at the cap hits in the next 4 years (Brady and Peyton's primes), both he and Peytons numbers are nearly the same.

    Don't just look at it as 68 million = good deal because it doesn't say 99 million. Peyton's deal can be spread out over nine years, bradys can't.

    Peytons signing bonus = 27 mil
    Bradys signing bounus = 26 mil

    From MMQB

    Season Manning's cap number Brady's cap number
    2005 $8.43 million $3.417 million
    2006 $10.05 million $8.817 million
    2007 $7.69 million $10.817 million
    2008 $18.19 million $12.817 million
    2009 $20.69 million $12.817 million
    2010 $19.95 million $11.317 milion

    Are you serious? Nearly the same? $20.6 mill on a QB in one year is insane. I would rather have Brady at 12.8 mill, and have cap space for lets say a Defense!?

    DC Rock thank you for clearing it all up for us.

    Colt, I know you HAVE to defend your team but even you have to question spending 99 and 66 million dollars on TWO players. You can't even re-sign James to anything longer than a one year contract?

    Much less name one STAR you have on defense?
