  • Michael Clayton signs 5 year 25 million dollar deal with Bucs

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3944914
    what do you guys think of this, personally i think this is a terrible deal. why would they pay 25mil on a guy like clayton who hasn't been real productive?

    Matt Barkley will be the best QB to be selected in the Top 5 since Peyton Manning.

    Probably has something to do with the way the contract is written. Also, aren't they like 50 million below the cap? Gotta make it to the cap floor somehow.

      That rookie season sure has carried him a long way.

            5 million a year is a lot for a blocking number 3/4 receiver.

              It's fairly odd to see a disappointing 1st rounder resign with his drafted team to a fairly beefy deal.

              But as pointed out, maybe the cap-floor thing isn't that much of a stretch at all.

                    Cap floor....they could have picked up a few free agents this year and offered him a contract that resembles his ability.

                    They could get Nate Washington, Brian McFadden, Dawkings, Runyan, Cassel.

                          ... *shakes head*

                          Nice one, Tampa Bay.
                          The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                          “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

                            Why so much money to a guy they never use...

                            He's had plenty of time, the pricetag just doesn't match the production or skills. Maybe if another team signed this contract thinking he's a solid #2 but the Bucs already know what they have so it makes no sense whatsoever.

                            Thanks to BK for the sig

                              Apparently the Seahawks offered him more money but he declined to sign for the Bucs.

                              I hope this does signify Clayton receiving a bigger role in the offense. Behind K2 and Bryant it looks like he might be the #3 target so hopefully with an increased workload he returns to his rookie year form.
