Donte

While whoodi and I have bang heads lately on him. One thing came to my attention. I have read this is a contract year and he will do so much in this year. But it not a contract year. This is for all of you as well as me who thought it was.

Player Info Draft Info
WR (#) Year: 2002
New Orleans Saints Round: 1
Sacramento, CA Position: 13

Salary History

2002 325000.00
2003 305000.00
2004 435000.00
2005 1115000.00
2006 1920000.00
2007 545000.00

So the cap money of 1.92 million is a big reason I can see why teams did not bit on the trade offers. Now next year at 545,000 i see teams beating down the doors. I missed this point all together. At 545,000 he is a keeper by all means.

I think the 2007 season of Donte's contract is a voidable year, that's why people keep saying it's a contract year. It was the same way in Sully's contract. I think the last two years of his are voidable, unless NE does a new deal. I also think it's voidable at Donte's option, that's how they got him signed for 6 years.

This is his contract year, as you all pointed out, next season is voidable...and 1.9 million dollars for a WR is not a bad deal...plus, anyone who would trade for him would probably try to extend his deal instead of running the risk of keeping him for only one year.

Stallworth was a top 15 receiver last year even though he played mostly at #2 in an offense that sucked. He's cheap by comparison to the other receivers on that list. I can't for the life of me fathom why the new administration is disenchanted with him.
