    Wish I could say the same about Snee.

      And Nate Clements averages 10 million a year. Pretty simple math. 8 years 80 million dollars.

        Actually it's not nearly that simple, which is what a lot of people don't understand.


        Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

          Pfft, old news. You're too new and edgy to be posting stuff that people knew about day 1.

          Anyways, regardless of overpaying people, I'll be mad if the Jets don't sign anyone.

            Yeah, they have a ton of room. I'm surpised. If Samuel hit the open market I think he would have definately been a Jet.

              If BF51 gets banned, then it is a case of when keeping it real goes wrong. Seriously though, I hope not.

              The more money the NFL makes, the more "overpaid" players get. Seriously though, most people here have no concept of the salary cap. These players will be lucky to make 1/2 of what their "deals" say they will. Just like Arrington and Burelson last year. Neither of them will see any of the money they were slated to make.

                Yeah. See, I'm glad we didn't sign Clements now, because he isn't worth it. However, Samuel would have rocked, even if we had to overpay him 2 million a year.

                  He won't be banned. People who have been around as long as he has cannot get banned. Well, assuming they are moderately intelligent and know things about football.

                  Crap... he might get banned after all...

                    well clements should start putting up some solid numbers, he'll be the nr.1 dback in SF, while in Buffalo he had to share that with McGee.

                      Arrington's contract was a whole lot different though. He didn't have close to 18 million in guaranteed money. I think he only had 5.

                        Are people ********?

                        Champ Bailey
                        63,000,000.00 divided by seven years equals 9,000,000.00 a season.

                        Nate Clements
                        80,000,000.00 divided by eight years equals 10,000,000.00 a season.

                        So if I'm wrong how this doesn't come out that Nate Clements is getting paid more on average let me know.

                          What I am saying is the unintelligent looked at the deal and thought the Giants gave him a big deal. I remember many a heated argument with some pesky Redskin fans who were laughing at the Giants.

                            35$ Million of Nate Clements contract, he will NEVER see. He is going to get paid 45$ Million for six years, then as he turns 32 years old, he will be cut loose.

                              Yeah a lot of the bonus money was set in roster bonuses in future years he never reached. I'm not sure the way a lot of these contracts are set up but Davis for example says 18 million guaranteed. That means roster bonuses aren't part of that 18 million. That is a whole lot to give and mediocre player no matter what the market value is set at.

                                Shiver and BF51, you're wasting your time. People here don't understand the salary cap. People have been trying to explain this **** all weekend, and they still don't get it. They don't want to get it, for whatever reason.
