Hartline's deal

28 posts in this topic

5 years for $31 million after only one good season in his career. Damn the Dolphins for skewing the value of wr's, at that rate we have been getting Smitty for quite a good price. If he is getting 6 a year, what do you think Wallace is going to demand?

He had one good year, and they're paying him like a proven guy. It's probably an overpay, but that's what you have to do to keep talent around your young quarterback.

yea i guess, and that one "good year" consisted of ONE touch down. It's not the fact they overpaid for him, well overpaid in the average fans eyes and most kinda expected, but what it does for other wr's who are twice the player he is and what they will be asking for.

Not sure how we have the right to laugh at them, when we thought the extensions to Godfrey, and Dwill were good deals.

The guy is young, has obvious chemistry with their QB of the future, and had 1100 yards, I don't think a average of 6 million a year for a reciever is a terrible deal. Even if they get Mike Wallace, this guy will be at least their #2 Wideout and on the field at all times, and he's making less then our backup running back(in a pass first league). We have no room to laugh.

Thread wasn't created to laugh at another team, but to see what people think it will do to other wr's expectations. He only scored one td last season, not that that tells the entire story but it probably will make it more difficult to sign quality players with some of these high contracts. Maybe not seeing that Rice and Foster both signed for less than Deangelo after the fact, but it could always be used in a players negotiation.

    • Trump is making a bad situation worse with his penny pinching ways to showboat to his supporters here in the USA.  He was speaking out of his ass during the campaign, but he should know better by now than to continue with that sort of pandering to the lowest common denominator. There is no other alliance more critical to the safety of the US than NATO and keeping the peace in that region of the world is infinitely cheaper for the American taxpayer than the cost of coming to their military rescue for a third time.   However, the ramifications go well beyond the unimaginable destructiveness of another world war.   Simply giving the impression to our European allies that the USA cannot be counted on for support weakens the hand of Europe when dealing with Russia on economic and political policies as well.  A USA less than fully committed to Europe's defense will draw them further into Russia's orbit of influence.  That will be unfortunate as our European bases are very important to the projection of our military power around the globe.  Just don't act like the USA is blameless in where we are today.
