We told you in that thread that the $70 million was BEFORE Cam would get re-signed. We also didn't know at that time Olsen, TD Sr., and Ed Dickson would get extensions. It was $70 million before we signed Ginn, Oher, Dwan Edwards, Kurt Coleman, and Teddy Williams to 2 year contracts It was $70 million before we exercised the 5th year option of Luke's contract at a cost of roughly $11 million for next year It was $70 million before we had to sign our draft picks this year It was $70 million before we designated DeAngelo as a post June 1st cut and had part of his dead money put on the books for 2016 We told you the $70 million was before any signings, cuts, extensions, options, the draft, or re-signings, but you fixated on the number $70 million and ignored everything else. A big reason I don't read any thread you make anymore is you ask questions and don't listen to or remember our answers. That's troll behavior and a waste of my time.
It would give the team an extra year to divide up Luke's signing bonus against the salary cap, i.e. 6 years vs. 5 years to spread the hit out means a lower cap number for every year of Luke's new contract On the other hand, Cam didn't get his new deal until after the 4th year of his contract was done and he was going into the last year of his rookie deal. I'd be cautious of bruising my starting QB's ego by signing the defense's QB a year sooner than Cam got his extension. I personally don't know if that's an issue, but it very well might be. After all, we want both #1 and #59 happy here, not resenting each other because of contract timing or money or anything else causing a locker room split and 5 or 6 years of animosity between offense and defense.
Funny how Gettleman got hammered by the "pro draftniks" for taking a player with no clear position in the 1st, trading up in the 2nd for a player who was more a TE than WR, and then to top it all off, burned all our remaining picks that weren't comp picks for an OT in the 4th round when he SHOULD have drafted one in the 1st round. Just imagine how our season would be looking without Shaq, Funchess, and the BIG mean ugly DWill, not to mention getting fresh back-ups for Stewie and Luuuuuuke
Cool I got my own category with RR and Igo *big smiles* Seriously I'll be with RR at the game, drive up could be as early as Friday, as late as Sunday morning, don't know yet *shrug* I'd tell RR to leave a couple tickets at Will Call for Charlotte Flair and her dad, but she's got a PPV to work that night
I'm calling bs on this Volume of traffic caused a hamster to tear it's ACL and the "techs" had to run to PetSmart and sign a free agent wheel-spinner And I'm sorry, but I'd much rather have a healthy KB and the Huddle crash week 1
Lol I like where your heads at so let's run with this like the folks bashing Gettleman for not signing Cam would. "I'm scared Luke won't come back cuz da Gettles kickd da Krakin outs and look at da line suckin it at da Bills and da back a da D is all like rookies and old guys WHY He NO SIGN DA REVIS or MCCORTY?!?!?! It's cuz the big cat just want da $$$$ say bye bye to Luuuuuuuke" Where'd those Huddlers go to? They always gave me a chuckle
Tolbert's probably staying regardless of his position title. He's great at blitz pick-up, can catch and run, is a valuable option in the red zone, and plays special teams. RB#2, RB#3, FB#1, FB#2, whatever. His title isn't important. Having him on the active game-day roster is.
