    Unless I'm mistaken, the reason most players hate the tag is because it pales in comparison to the signing bonus+guaranteed money a new deal would likely grant them. Once it is signed, I believe it becomes guaranteed.

    In this case, the tag is actually about what Cassel will likely get SB wise.

      They don't like it because they have no long term security. If they get hurt while playing on a 1 year contract it will kill their chances at a big payday.

        oh ok. I thought it was like a high contract with no bonus.

          Right, which basically means what I said - the guaranteed mulla on a new deal is going to usually be a lot more than the tag. If the tag rules stated the player is paid the same he'd get guaranteed on a new 5 year deal, then I'm sure they wouldn't mind at all.

          And for Cassel it will probably be close to that. And when you consider he'll likely be a backup this season away from danger and a free agent again in a year, the tag becomes even more attractive for him. He really should sign the tag right away.

            I think it's considered guaranteed base salary once signed - sorta like how veteran base salaries are guaranteed if they're on the roster starting week 1 or whatever it is.

              yeah, that's one thing i never really got. the money is guaranteed as soon as they sign, but some of the players ***** when they get tagged a few seasons in a row. maybe it's just me, but i'd take the $14 million x 3 years. i'll take the 42 million over the three years over the $30 million they would get with a long term contract, plus the "guaranteed money/signing bonus" in a long term contract isnt always guaranteed, just ask mike vick (yes i know he was a dumb ass and killed his career) or kellen winslow jr. some of the time the "guaranteed money" is in the form of roster bonuses that they should be able to make, but some times arent. just ask deangelo hall about his raider contract

                I'd have to get my buddy to answer these questions. He's got the Salary cap down to a near exact science.

Look at how much the Falcons were able to get for Matt Schaub - who had a much less extensive body of work than Cassell. The Patriots are being smart - there are not a lot of quality quarterbacks in this league and you can recoup a lot of value if you happen to have an extra one lying around on your roster.
                  I'm not 100% sure but didn't Brady's knee get infected? And didn't he have to have 1-2 additional surgeries to get the infection out and repair it again because it wasn't working right?

                  again not 100% sure but I thought I heard that.

                    The thing is, the tag isn't normally this high for most positions. When players complain, they're usually looking at $6-9M rather than the 15-20 they may get guaranteed on a new deal. I don't think QB's getting tagged is that common, they're usually instant long term deal candidates.

                    That, and I think some players exaggerate it's impact. Having serious objections to the tag can't hurt even if it's not as bad as made out.

                    A smart poster over on a Titans board put forward the possibility Cassel won't be a UFA next offseason since, if the non capped year comes about, players don't become UFA's until their 6th season (or something like that). So Cassel will be a RFA. Therefore, it's probably not that great idea for him to sign the tag ASAP as he won't likely get a big deal next offseason.

                      Trade bait. They drafted O'Connell and will use him if need be, but Brady has a long time to recover. In all the hoopla made over his infection nobody bothered to mention that guys like Palmer & McNabb returned the next season after suffering similar injuries much later in the season.

                      Exactly. Probably into a first and second. My guess is the 1st rounder would be a conditional pick, so maybe this years 2nd rounder and next year 1st/2nd depending on his play.

                      Doubt it. They'd have to be over cap to get nothing for him. Why not keep him w/Brady coming off injury? He's proved he can get the job done.

                        Also, does anyone know if there is actually a franchise contract on the table that he could sign immediately? I don't know if the team actually has to offer it to be signed the same day.

                        Either way, signed or not he can be traded. The contract is basically meaningless when a trade deal is worked out, as a different (presumably long-term) deal would be worked out with the new team.

                          A team would be stupid to give up 1st or second for this guy. Seriously, he proved he can be pretty good with an outstanding supporting cast, what is he going to do with an inferior group around him?

                            Not many QB's are good without a supporting casts.

                            All that matters to me is he proved (even if it was agaisnt bad D's) he can throw the ball at the NFL level, and he is young enough to keep growing. I'de pay him, and give up a 1st this year and a conditional 3rd next year. QB's are invaluable at this level.

                              This post is so full of fail.

                              Because he played on a team with Randy Moss, automatically he's a scrub? Let's not forget that the o-line fell off from its play last year, and they had absolutely no running game to speak of. The TE position also disappeared from that offense, so it was basically Cassel, Moss, Welker and whatever was left from the offensive line.

                              He performed exceptionally well given the conditions, and should a team with a solid foundation built already take him, he will be very good. What kind of quarterback can you get in the second round that can step in automatically and win 11 games for you?

                                So he's proved more than any college QB who would cost a 1st round pick in the draft. Isn't that proof worth a second round pick?


                                I've seen this argument many times now and I still think it's silly. Cassel will most likely sign a contract that costs LESS than the first QB off the board this year and has done far more in the NFL with just one season under his belt.

                                imo, that means he's worth a 1 & 2.
