Basically teams expected the cap to rise faster than it has under the new CBA, so they signed a bunch of deals coming off the uncapped years thinking they'd be reasonable when the cap was raised only it hasn't.

Even if you expected the cap to rise....that doesn't defend what we did

Yeah I agree. I was just trying to show that GM's weren't completely nuts. They were just betting on a higher cap, and that turned out to be a bad bet. Hence Hurney's current employment status.

But Hurneu without question didn't call all the shots....JR told Hurney what to do the year prior to the spending spree.

I still think Hurney followed JR's wishes in terms of how nice to treat their own after...

Exactly.


Another example of JR's meddling:
JR has said himself he called the shot cutting Kasay. I don't believe its much of a stretch for JR to have told Hurney to find the best kicker who can kickoff and kick field goals and do what it takes to get him.

Garret Hartley got 5 yrs/12 million vs the 4 yrs/12 million Mare got in the same offseason. Look at their resume's previous to those contracts.. and of all of sudden in comparison it does not look as bad.

Brady's deal is really a 3 year deal worth 40 million, even he probably wont see that money in the last two years of that deal.


form what I understood the deal was guaranteed with 30 mil signing bonus.

No he didn't. He got a 30 mill dollar signing bonus and ever dime of the contact practically guaranteed.

It is just playing with numbers. Brady didn't take less
