That 122M we have consumes next year/2014 is only 40 players and a practice squad.

Thats the reason i said read through the 2014 cap list and see all of the players not on it.
You mean the cap does not increase to $150 million? WTF.

How many times does Loomis have to show the rest of the league how its done before everyone will take a deep breathe and relax. In Loomis I trust

At some point all these large back ended contracts bite youbin the backside and we are sitting on a fair few.
Pure guesswork but the plan looks shift the debt while Drew is here and the team is primed to win then blow it all up and rebuild after.

I just hate to see stuff like this interfere with team chemistry ... you know, like how it's been pointed out that some players may have to restructure, others may not be around next season, et ... It's gotta' affect the psychy of those players and others around him when one guy is getting singled out for reward ... it is a "team" sport, we're all human and like to see our contributions recognized.

At the end of the day, everyone realizes & comes to grips with the fact that some guys do bring more value to the team, but it's probably better handled in the offseason, IMO. But I see from the thread, JG's agent is an instigator, so go figure, eh? .

... this space intentionally left blank ...

I like recognizing contribution... That is why some people take pay cuts

The negotiations won't effect anything. He hasn't been all in the media asking to get more money. Everything is fine. He's the best players on the entire team outside of Brees. Pay him.

With what? You answer that first.

I will bet we franchise him near 6M, and see what we have in 2015. Lets not forget Jimmy CANT leave.


Sounds cruel? If I were Jimmy I would hold out for the Franchise in 2014, then take my 8 year 60M contract (Gronkowski + #s).
