With Eric Wright also agreeing to a deal, Brady Quinn is the lone Browns draft pick left unsigned. Thomas, a marvelous pass blocker, should be the team's starting left tackle right away. If he progresses quickly, the Browns may consider shopping incumbent LT Kevin Shaffer to the Colts, who recently lost Tarik Glenn to retirement, or re-opening trade talks with the Giants.

Packers signed Justin Harrell according to their front page.

yep its official and bearsfan_51 you visit packers.com?

The Green Bay Packers have signed rookie defensive tackle Justin Harrell, the team's first-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signing Friday.

Harrell, a 6-foot-4, 310-pound player from Tennessee, was a four-year letterman and defensive captain in 2006. He became the last Tennessee player to wear Reggie White's No. 92.

In 35 career games, including 25 starts, Harrell tallied 82 tackles, four sacks and two interceptions. He earned second-team All-Southeastern Conference honors in 2005 before injuries limited his senior season to three games.

Harrell is the final of 11 draft picks to sign with the Packers. All rookies will take the field Saturday when the team opens training camp at 2 p.m.

07-30-2007, 01:10 PM
Re: the Landry deal, the reported $41.5M is the maximum value of the contract. Wait and see how the contract breaks down.

For example, Adrian Peterson's reported $40M requires him essentially playing near/at an elite level for multiple years to get that figure, he's much more likely to earn $30M instead. Hence talk of Peterson earning more per year than LaDainian Tomlinson is foolish and incorrect.

As a point of comparison, for those that think the Bears made a bad move by not trading with the Redskins up to the 6th spot.

Greg Olsen- 5 years, 7.769 Million
Lance Briggs- 1 years, 7.2 Million


Laron Landry- 5 years, 41.5 Million


Now..granted..Landry will likely be a much more impactful player for the Redskins, and with today's market that's not a terrible deal, but considering it's about a 50/50 proposition that he lives up to that money, I can totally understand why teams don't want to pick in the top 10 anymore, particularly the top two picks which are likely going to get near the 30 million guaranteed mark. Basically you are putting all of your faith in your ability to not miss on a player, and that's of course never a given. Had we signed Landry that means we wouldn't have been able to resign Charles Tillman, and we would have been right back looking for a #1 Corner in the next draft.

per pft ( i know they're 50/50 ) the raiders and jamarcus are not fighting over money, rather the language of the deal. russell wants his guaranteed money to be paid out more like option bonus money, which means he'd still be paid in event of hold out or suspension per league ruling with ashlie lelie case. the raiders obviously do not want the majority of the $ to be paid out in this option bonus. http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm

You have to realize most if not all of these contracts are maximum amount deals. They include a lot of incentive based things, as well as options in the contract. So while yes they are getting up there, it's not as bad as they seem.

Still. I believe Geo pointed out that if Landry doesn't meet an incentives (or very few of them) he is still getting 5 years, $30 million. That makes him tied for the third highest paid safety in the league. There is no reason to make an unproven guy who has never played a down in the NFL the 3rd highest paid player at his position. If the NFL set rookie contracts like the NBA everyone would be in camp on time and no one would be vastly overpaid.

I do realize that but even if you take out most of the incentives these contracts are bigger than they should be. Rookies who have never played a down will still be making more money than more than half of the Pro Bowlers.

Geo
07-31-2007, 01:52 AM
Yeah, that part about the ideal $40M vs. more realistic $30M or so was about the deal AD inked with with the Vikings (I believe it was PFT who via league sources reported how the deal worked out realistically). I've yet to come across the same with Landry's contract though I'm keeping an eye out. Who knows, maybe it's not far off.

I do agree that something should be done about the rising costs of Top 10/20 rookie contracts, even if the salary cap & floor continue to rise. Establishing caps for draft slots, perhaps in tandem with all rookie contracts being no longer than 4 years - so that 1st round players can deservingly reach free agency sooner - could make more sense/success. Such a system might actually be more beneficial to bad teams than the current one, in terms of the amount they have to invest in unproven prospects and the potentially greater availablity of developed players they could invest in to accelerate their improvement.

(I don't think the franchise tag would remain, it does pays more than handsomely as the average of the Top 5 highest salaries at the respective position, though offers no long-term security beyond that year. If the union is making concessions with incoming drafted players, owners/teams will likely have to do the same for free agents.)

I'm continually surprised the current players haven't initiated much of anything towards something like this, it would mean that more money goes to them instead of unproven players out of college.

Also, the staggering amount of money involved plus so many general managers treating Jimmy Johnson's outdated draft value chart as gospel (especially as they are afraid to anger their franchise's fans, who also have access to it), is killing the possibility of trades in that area of the draft as well.

So, I just read the morning paper and there's a story about how Brady Quinn is still holding out because he and his agent are reportedly asking for "Top 10 Selection" money...is it just me or does this seem ridiculous? Who cares where you "should have been" drafted, the fact is you were drafted 22nd, so why are you asking for top 10 money when you weren't even top 20? It is reasons like this that make me hate players holding out...

Sveen
07-31-2007, 06:01 AM
Their argument is that the Browns used their 1st-rounder in '08 to get him (which could very well be a high pick), and he is a franchise QB. Therefor Quinn should be payed more than the 22nd pick. Not a good argument, but that is what they are saying.

ninerfan
07-31-2007, 06:43 PM
I feel for Quinn and from a personal point of view I'd probably do the same but how can you argue with the fact he was pick 22. Its irrelevent where he 'should' have been drafted - he does nothing but hurt his chances of A) playing this year, B) establishing himself as the long term franchise player he thinks he is, C) building repore with his team mates, D) winning over the fans. Brady sign a contract and let your play speak for itself

And then their were two. I don't know why the Jets are playing around with Revis like this.

Revis and Russell are the last of the holdouts I see. Glad we FINALLY got Quinn in camp.

He wants 5 years, Jets want 6.

He's actually not even that late getting into camp. Everyone was making a big deal out of nothing. Leinart missed the first preseason game last year and he still was starting half way though his rookie year.

Missing that little bit of camp isn't going to hold Quinn back. He'll be able to learn the offense in no time.

If the Jets would be willing to sign their draft pick to a 5-year deal, Revis would be there within a day or two.

I dont see why they won't most guys only get 5 years around that slot. Timmons one below got 5 why are the jets so hung up over 6 years?

I don't understand all this hate towards Revis? He wants a 5 year deal, most picks get 5 years and for the Jets to insist on this 6th year and keep him from attending camp is ridiculous. This whole holdout is the Jets' front office's fault and at this juncture of training camp for him to still be unsigned is laughable.

My personal view is that the top 5 picks of the first round should get 6-year deals. Picks 6-32 should get 5-year deals.

Contract negotiations are a two way street. Lets not all make the Jets out to be the bad guys here. A six year contract is not absurd to ask Revis to sign at all. Remember, last years #14 overall pick (Broderick Bunkley) signed a six year deal. Let's not shove all of the blame onto one side here. If the Jets were willing to give Revis a five year deal (like #13 and #15 got) then the situation could be resolved. However, if Revis were willing to accept a deal similar to the one that last year's #14 got, then he could just as easily end it himself.

According to ESPN JaMarcus Russell and the Raiders are not even close to a contract. Chris Mortenson reported that Russell feels the Raiders are offering a "very unfair" contract. Interesting to see how this turns out.

Thank god Darelle Revis finally ended his hold out and him and the Jets came to an agreement.

If the Raiders knew that Russell would hold out like this, would they still pick him, or is the hold-out irrelevent?

It's irrelevant as long as they get him signed before he enters the 2008 Draft.

On ESPN either Clayton, or mortensen(can't remember which) has been saying that the raiders have been offering basically the same deal as they offered him befoer the draft and Jamarcus told the raiders not to draft him if that was the deal they were going to offer him

They probably keep handing him the same contract back with an extra line of "PLEASE!!!!!" each time he turns it down.

I would really like to know what Russell's definition of "unfair" is. I know it's a business, and there is precedent on what a #1 pick should get. But from what I know, Russell came from humble beginnings, so any kind of millions of dollars should not seem "very unfair" to him. Now, I am not criticizing his actions, if he wants more guaranteed money that fine, get yours kid. I just don't understand or appreciate him saying any millions of dollars is "very unfair". That's almost as bad as Sprewell's "I can't feed my family" comment, with 14mill sitting there.

Although we don't know what the contract dispute is about, why is everyone so quick to rip into Russell here? All of you were outraged at the Panthers when they offered Jon Beason an "unfair" contract. Now, ESPN claims the Raiders are offering Russell and "unfair" contract and suddenly he's the bad guy?

From what I remember from the ESPN segment I was referencing, they've agreed on a base salary and length of the contract, but the Raiders are offering him similar guaranteed money to what Mario Williams got last year, and he wants a bit more. Which is completely understandable. The Raiders also put a few clauses in their current offer regarding bonus money that Russell's camp has deemed "unfair." I don't want to make it sound like this is all the Raiders fault, but you people are too quick to pick sides and act like it's 100% the fault of one side.

If it was 3rd party source that called it unfair then I have no problem. But I was under the impression that Russell said it was "very unfair". I reiterated many times that I am not criticizing or "ripping" Russell, if he wanted more guaranteed money, then of course he should go for it. But I didn't appreciate him, if he even did now, call it "very unfair". I was not making commentary on the contract dispute, more then I was commenting on his poor choice of words. No NFL player, IMO should use the phrase "very unfair" when he is talking about millions of dollars.

The #1 pick should never be a hold-out. If the Raiders were dead-set on taking Russell they should have been working on a contract well before the draft.

I agree with this sentiment and whether or not you agree with the pick or not, you have to give the Texans credit for a job well done last draft.

They did have contract talks before the draft.

Revis signed a 6 year $36 million deal.

JaMarcus Russell To Eat One Cake For Every Day He Is Not Signed
OAKLAND--With contract negotiations with the Raiders at a standstill, top draft pick JaMarcus Russell is threatening to eat one whole cake every day that he is not signed to a contract, raising the possibility that the young QB could resemble Ted Washington if the team doesn’t meet his demands soon.
“I shall eat one cake, one entire cake, every day until the Raiders agree to my contract demands,” Russell told reporters yesterday. “It will be an ice cream cake, with the crunchy things in the middle and a big football on the top, and I will eat it right before bed. No, actually, I will eat it in bed, while watching television, with the cake resting on my already oversized stomach. Unless the team wants me to be completely immobile when I take the field, I suggest they put pen to paper as soon as possible.”
“Lest they think I’m bluffing,” he added. “I will consume one right now. Hang on…Okay, all done. Pretty fast, huh? And I wasn’t even hungry.”
