We are in some serious trouble.

Think that is just what I typed in. The guaranteed part is the main part to look at anyway. I guess he should have included the word guaranteed.

Hes 23 now. Next year (the last year of his deal) he'll be 24. two years max on tag puts him at 26 how is that about 30. Wtf are you talking about?

I dunno about this 30 business, but next year isn't necessarily the last year of his deal. There's a 5th year option the team can (and obviously will if an extension isn't reached) pick up.

Flacco has atleast a Super Bowl trophy and a killer record in the playoffs. Not to mention he had one of the greatest post season runs ever. Romo has 1 playoff win.

i figured that was a player, not team option. Id like for us, if we have a winning season, to go ahead and lock it up long term after this year.

Only after we've taken the 5th year option on his rookie deal and placed the franchise tag on him for about 3 years or so. At this point he will be 30 years old and it would make sense to let him walk instead of giving out a massive, multi-year deal.

If at any point during those remaining years does he win a Super Bowl, then JR will hand him a blank check.

or he can hold out and demand a trade. Or play just to get his. or miss a game every other week due to injury(?). Those ankle and shoulder sprains can be chronic, you know. Tagged players who wants out don't play through injuries, their prior performance speaks for itself. They're just trying to get out. Lol

Those franchise tagging also cost; it would also cost the panthers at least 18-20mil per tag(average of top 5 QBs). 20mil to a player missing 6-8 games? Don't think so.

The last thing a franchise need is a disgruntled superstar QB. A disgruntled QB is not gonna win you your super bowl for you. Remember Carson Palmer?

Just because Jerry Jones has proven that he is a crazy old man, and Steve Biscotti arguably overpaid a guy who came to the bank during the perfect storm doesn't mean that a conservative owner and conservative GM are going to get stupid when negotiating Cam's contract.

If Cam wins the Super Bowl, he should get paid like a top tier QB, until then he should get paid fair market value just like all the rest (as well he should). Cam seems like a reasonable guy that has a certain level of loyalty to the organization, as well as a humility and sensibility to his nature. I don't see him holding out for the highest bidder, but if he does, then everyone will just have to do what they have to do. At this point, I don't see him going anywhere.

LOL, Cowboys... Jerry Jones makes Hurney look like Ozzie Newsome.

Just finished reading about how the Cowboys have nothing to show for their 2009 draft class, when they had 12 picks! Not one starter or even a solid backup out of 12 picks!

They might have found someone good in the 1st round in 2009, but they traded that pick to Detroit for Roy Williams... BAAAAHAHAHAHAHA

Wow....even Jerry Jones should be smart enough to fire himself.

I don't think this is that big a deal mainly because we already saved 40 million or so when we drafted because of the new rookie wage scale. Almost every franchise QB will be getting these monster contracts from here on out as long as there are teams out there that don't have a franchise QB. So, the going rate will be that someone out there will pay those crazy number.

At least we have a superstar QB who has a great chance to be worth that type of money. God help us if we had to pay a Romo type QB that much.

The new rookie wage scale was supposed to allow more money to go to the veterans who have proved themselves. Instead, it seems it's going directly to quarterbacks.

Also, the market will settle a bit by the time we give Cam his huge contract in that other positions will start to see less money since QBs are being paid so much. It'll be the norm to have your QB take up 20% of your cap and other positions will see less.
