I hope that $5 mill they saved will be worth it when he leaves to play with Tom Brady and gets paid fairly. I'm not Jimmy fan, but I feel he got shafted. The rules clearly state that if you lined up a majority of the time at one position you get paid as such, he was like 70% of the time lined up as a WR I think? The guy led the league in TDs last year..... stay classy Saints.
So when he gets paid more than Gronk, he won't be getting paid "fairly"? It was 67% of the time he was lined up in the slot. That has as much to do with his deficiencies as a blocker as it does anything. Tell me, if he was ruled a wide receiver, would his records for tight ends in the record books be erased? Would he be on the Pro-Bowl ballot as a WR?
