Radio 1090 in San Diego claims the Bolts are trying to ink him.

I've thought about this. Even had a number in mind.


All in all it's going to take losing a few players to send the message to the rest of the team that the ridiculous contracts just because you were drafted here are done with.


Sadly, though, I honestly do wonder if Richardson will step in and tell Gettleman to start passing them back out if we start to lose too many "family members."

you know outside of fan speculation there is no evidence to support that about JR.

Sounds reasonable. If I'm Captain though, and looking at what other corners have gotten so far, then I'm thinking more along the lines of at least 3 mil per.

But, with the market what it is right now, that is probably what he would get MAX, not minimum, so it'll probably be enough to win him over.

This is a fair reasonably deal IMO. Not high but not cheap either. The CB market this year was very weak, the top CBs were only getting $5-6 million a year. For a guy that's going to be a nickel/3rd CB on a team this seems fair.

Glad to see Gettleman is content to let him test the market instead of giving him a blank check like Hurney would do.

He's lucky it's a multiyear offer.

agreed. very few players signing (of the very few FAs who are signing anywhere) are getting multi year deals. most are one year offerings.

That's a pretty good deal. Plus if he does actually becomes as good as he believes he can be, he'll still be 27/28 when a new/bigger contract could come around.

Do I really have to sit here and copy and paste out for you all the evidence that has come across this Internet over the years of Richardson running this team like a family business and doing everything possible to maintain the players he's grown to like? I'm pretty sure there's something on the first few pages of the huddle that was being discussed just the other day.

I'll do it tonight then. I'm on a mobile device and am not going to sit here and spend a half hour doing this. If you're feeling impatient (or, you know, actually have some measure of initiative) you can google it yourself before then.

not a bad deal, and with Gamble gone, he has to realize that we probably also give him the best opportunity of starting... between him, Norman and Thomas it would probably be a wide open competition at camp

I am not saying you're wrong Because I really don't know But considering he fired both his sons and is not leaving them the team it makes me wonder if He is really that concerned with being Loyal to players

captain needs to be smart about this... San Diego may offer him more money but the cost of living is so much higher there add in taxes and just the thought of living in California should make captain want to stay here. Tolbert came here and took a pay cut but he probably brings home more money .

good point. it would be smart for him to talk to tolbert about all that.

more money doesn't necessarily mean more money in your pocket. it all depends on the area.

plus there's the stress and headaches that come with moving and then the reality that capt. has never really been far from home. he'd have to leave his area of comfort. i'm sure that's something that he'll be looking at as well.

As the biggest cap supporter (no pun intended) on this site I don't see what his deal is? Sign the contract son. It's fine that you have a chip on your shoulder but even half of that money is still more than most of us make in 20 years just to play a game.


b/c THIS window is probably Captain's shot of his biggest payday in his career....
