    yep.  It's actually a 1 year 12 million if they cut him after year 1.

     

    Robby is a deep threat  A one-trick pony, and is NOT particularly good at jump-balls.  In fact, he is under 50-50 on those 50-50's.  Carolina already has Moore, who is fast and Samuel plus Teddy Dink-and-Dunk only.  I just don't get it.  I know Robby and Rhule go way back together to Temple days.  Good luck to them.  

     

    Hmmmm....you're probably right about the Temple days. I found this:

    It's say the Jets offered him 4 years/$40 million!

    What in the heck were the Bears thinking giving Jimmy Graham 2 for 16 mill?  Worse FA signing of the year?

    Agreed. When I saw Ebron's deal, I was confused on why pay Graham, an aging player on the decline, so much. Makes no sense.

    Zeke got that same kind of deal Gurley got.  The problem is the players are sitting out and not playing if you don't cave to their demands.

     

    Hard when a guy is in the prime of his career like Gurley was (he still is only 25) and killing the league to tell him to take a walk and not give him what he wants.

    Exactly. This is a part of the bigger discussion we're having on the board in reference to contracts. No one saw Gurley's knees giving out on him, hindsight is 20/20.

    You sign a 5 yr deal, and leave for a competitor you will be sued.  In hockey all deals are guaranteed,  I dont understand this about football,  but it's what the players agreed to.   Owners are following the rules, a player reneging on a deal and sitting out , is poor imo.  Nobody forced them to sign a deal, or that deal, honor it.

     

     

    But contracts are not guaranteed in the NFL, there's the difference as you mentioned; therefore, players should be looking out for themselves. You combine a violent sport, with nonguaranteed contracts, AND teams who can cut players to save cost, AND the results are holdouts. Also, the other major sports don't have franchise tags which forces a player to stay with a team. All of these variables are the reasons there will continue to be holdouts in the NFL.

    Absolutely,  but Nuk was demanding to redo his deal, and I think owners and coaches are tired of this.  You agreed to a 5 yr deal, play it out.  Cam wanted to redo his deal as well, and they signed bridgewater,  told cam to find his own deal.  When I agreed to my 5 yr deal with my employer,  I didn't start asking for more each yr, I've worked every day for what we agreed to.  Athletes should be acting like better role models then entitled divas .  Be a man, do what you agreed to do.  Prove your signature (and name) mean something 

    I completely disagree. Employees have the right to leave if they don't like their contract and they can also suffer the consequences. Be a role model about contracts? To who? Other athletes? Additionally, Nuk never made this public. He never badmouthed the Texans. We don't know what happened behind closed doors, but if he asked for more money, that's his prerogative. Owners are quick to cut bait with under-performing players, why can't it be vice versa?

    If O'Brien did say this stuff, he has to go or at least get suspended or something.

     

    Aaron Hernandez was a freakin' murderer and a punk scumbag. 

     

     

     

    I'm bias to believe that O'Brien said it, but Irvin should've never released the information. Hopkins can speak for himself. I don't think we will ever know the truth. He should be fired for that trade, period!

    Could Cam Newton possibly end up in NE?

     

     

    I don't know how that would work. I just don't see the fit. BB is definitely running out of options unless he knows something special about one of his backups.

    Agree. But in all seriousness is any of this nonesense worth crashing the economy for? A little common sense would go along way right now. Isolate the high risk and protect the elderlies. For 90+ percent of the population this is a common cold. Hell, 20,000+ died in the US from the flu last year and nobody blinked an eye. 

    All of these debates are circulating and I have to deal with them daily. There's a fine line between the physical consequences and fear mongering.

    In all fairness they are spaced properly. Better than a supermarket. And we still need to work, right? 

    18-29 year olds do not space properly, maybe in that picture! I've worked my whole life with this population and the last thing they care about is "proper spacing." Check out a bar in a college town and you'll know what I'm talking about.
