Bouman gets 3yr extension

Saw this on ESPN's web site in John Clayton's quick hits, this was quiet hadn't heard a peep of this anywhere else.

Nov. 27, 2003
Saintly Quiet
The Saints quietly extended the contract of backup quarterback Todd Bouman, who was scheduled to be a free agent after the season. Bouman was acquired during the offseason in a trade from the Vikings. Bouman impressed coach Jim Haslett with his arm strength and ability to lead the offense behind Aaron Brooks. The three-year extension, which will keep Bouman with the Saints through the 2006 season, is believed to be worth between $3.6 million and $3.8 million.

1.2 mill a year for a backup? Does that sound right to you guys?

Bouman gets 3yr extension

June 1st 2003: St. Louis backup quarterback Marc Bulger on Sunday signed just a one-year contract for $375,000.

No, it doesn\'t sound right. You can get scared if you see some of the starting QBs in this league and a reasonably good backup is a nice safety net, but paying that kind of money - guess they got scared.

Bouman gets 3yr extension

Here is the 2002 salary cap cost of nfl QBs. It is only a one year look, not a current year at that and only the actual cap cost, so can\'t tell which contracts are escalating fast, deferred incetives and bonus etc. But it does give something to look at Boumans deal with. I highlighted a few in Boumans range.
Here is the link to the site I got this from if you want to check it out, it has more complete info on all player salaries, nothing current though.

Bouman gets 3yr extension

I know I\'m probably about to stir up a hornet\'s nest with this reply, but do any of you think this could be a way of lighting a fire under Aaron Brooks? By signing Bouman to this extension, could it mean a possible QB controversy for next season? Could it possibly be a ploy to get him out of New Orleans? Could he be a cap casualty next year? Or is this just a worse-case scenario of the Saints overspending again?

Bouman gets 3yr extension

Hhhmmm... interesting. I don\'t know D, but I might not be real surprised to see a controversy this offseason. Honestly, it\'s unlikely, but Brooks\' play, after having gotten much better by midseason, has turned back to poo from where I\'m sitting. Haslett has GOT to be feeling the pressure, and he might be getting worried that his ability to suceed in NO is tied a bit too tightly to AB\'s right now. Especially with the lack of support AB gets from AB and the media. He was getting ripped today during the Seattle game. The announcers were saying that Brooks can\'t get hit without dropping the ball. In any case, I think they just want to secure a good backup, but if Haslett is on the hot seat he may be willing to try anything to keep his job, and that may mean a open QB battle in the offseason. More likely than not, any so-called QB controversy is likely to be just lip service, b/c I seriously doubt Haslett will do anything without his son Aaron.

You would want a quality back up in position if you had a rookie getting the start .

Brooks and the first round pick for the shot at getting Eli ..........

Benson offered the whole draft for Peyton , could be a plan ........

BEAT has observed this thread and noted all who have spoken against the now and future king Brooks. He is destined to lead this team to greatness and any blasphemies spoken against him will not be tolerated.

Drink your orange beverage quietly and recall who took us to playoff victory glory.

Bouman gets 3yr extension

Here is something for the BEAT juicers ....

PFW

New Orleans

QB Aaron Brooks struggled down the stretch last season with a bum shoulder, and some insiders pointed to head coach Jim HaslettΓƒΖ’Γ‚Β’ΓƒΒ’Γ‚β€šΓ‚Β¬ΓƒΒ’Γ‚β€žΓ‚Β’s unwillingness to play then-backup Jake Delhomme as a reason the team collapsed and finished out of the playoffs. This year, Brooks is suffering from a sprained left knee that kept him out of practice for a time last week, and with the Saints clinging to dim playoff hopes, some insiders believe Brooks should be given some time to rest and give the team a chance to see what else they have at quarterback. Delhomme never really got a good look at quarterback before bolting via free agency to the Panthers, and this year, backup Todd Bouman is in the last year of his contract. Bouman is somewhat of an unknown, although he was productive in three starts with the Vikings in 2001, and the Saints must determine if he is worth keeping around next season. WeΓƒΖ’Γ‚Β’ΓƒΒ’Γ‚β€šΓ‚Β¬ΓƒΒ’Γ‚β€žΓ‚Β’re told, however, that Haslett might not bother to play Bouman because he doesnΓƒΖ’Γ‚Β’ΓƒΒ’Γ‚β€šΓ‚Β¬ΓƒΒ’Γ‚β€žΓ‚Β’t want to open up a QB controversy by sitting Brooks when Brooks is healthy enough to play.
