    Geez, the #3 pick can make more than the #1 pick overall. Williams makes more guaranteed money though.

    John McClain reports to 610 Radio that Young has signed for purported 25.7 Million guaranteed/ 58 million total deal.

    This must mean the deal is laden with incentives to be earned.

    IMO the inexperienced Adams would be a liability for VY, but no way. He was
    the deal closer for Vince while the bumbling West Coast agent Segal (I think that's his name), screwed up the first round pick for Bush and is eating Vince's dust again as the UT grad heads to the bank with his big payday.
    Kudos to VY and his agent Major Adams. And so much for the Wonderlic score - no big deal, which I was dead wrong about to.

    Vince's deal is worth up to $58 million if he reaches all his incentives, who knows the likelihood of getting all of those. According to PFT Mario can earn up to $62 million with all his incentives. I wonder if they'll ever report what Vince got for his base contract value without incentives. Good luck to Reggie getting Benson to pony up that kind of dough, he could be in for a long hold out.

    It's good to see McClain is putting more interest in VY than the Texans. Bravo :brickwall

    Congrats to VY and his family. There was some doubt as to how his agent Major Adams would do and looks like this is a good deal for both sides.

    So much does Reggie ask for now? And how much more likely is a lenghty hold out?

    Good for Vince on the deal, I hope (as I do for all kids who sigh these insane contracts) that he is smart with his money. Just look at the modern lives of MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice, if you need an example.

    Sucks for the Saints... Reggie is gunna want the whole cookie AND some milk to wash it down. Makes our pick look and feel even better, no matter how many :homer: 's crawl out of the woodworks.

    No parties with Mike Vick for VY if thats the case.

    Fair enough.
    I've been critical of VY, both the player's potential in the NFL and the wisdom of the Texans taking him. And I'm still glad we didn't draft him, but I may yet need to admit to being wrong about that also.
    But I wish Vince nothing but the best in the NFL now that he's got a done deal with the Titans. Except of course when he's playing you know who.
