Would Greg Olsen Restructure?

39 posts in this topic

After reading the what the NFL.com article (that El Chingon posted) had to say about Greg Olsen,  it made me think that Olsen is a prime candidate for restructure.  He's very underrated outside of the Carolinas apparently, but the article is right, a 7.8 million dollar salary this is way too high at the TE spot.  

 

My gut feeling tells me that Greg would be willing to restructure.  Would do you guys think?

Yeah I never realize we were paying him that much but he's probably our best receiver at this point so I'm not too mad about it.

 

I think Greg Olsen is all about winning, just based off his post-game comments after wins and losses and taking the blame, so I think he would restructure.

I believe he would, it's one of the benefits of having a lot (notice it's not 'alot') of high character guys. They tend to be "team first" people.

Why would he restructure? He's the best receiver we have on the team right now and he knows it.

To take one for the team. That's the only reason anyone not in danger of being released would ever do that.

You do realize restructuring doesn't involve taking a paycut, right? In fact, he'll probably get more guaranteed money.

He's our best receiver on this team, which is pathetic in itself. So $7.8 is not that high. It just shows that this team put little value in pass catchers. It's all about RBs and defense with this team.

I swear, restructure doesn't mean what some of you think it does. He's not taking a pay cut, but he'll gladly convert future salary into a signing bonus. And his cap number is not the same as his actual salary.

    • I am a 3 percenter. I am white, married, no children, no debt. I have a pension for the rest of my life, and we have a couple retirement accounts to also use at some point. I own the home I live in, I built and own 50% of the house my in-laws live in and we have our place in Mexico.  If you think for one fugging second that anything Trump does effects my life from one day to the next, you are sadly mistaken.  That being said, I'm also a compassionate human being who cares about the quality of life for other human beings. I've been places and seen both the best and worst of how people live all over the world. The GOP has proven time and again over the past 40 years they couldn't give a sh!t less about blue collar, middle America. The working class for the GOP are nothing but the mules who lug their riches to the bank. The backs of the working class bore not only the labor that made assholes like Trump rich, but they are also the backs the GOP stand on to keep their feet from touching the bullsh!t they spew. While racism has always had its place in politics, the GOP has become very overt in their racism and have added that to the mix as well.  Sad part is, many naive, uneducated people who live in this country and who have been the forced labor in the GOP camp for the last 40 years are supporting such a regime. Why? Because they have no nuance for anything but the very basic and will believe the simpleton idea of "building a wall" before they'll try to educate themselves and become literate with the entire immigration reform issue. They'll buy into the anti-Muslim rhetoric and believe they are the terrorists despite the fact they should more afraid of the teenage white kid down the street who spends most of his time playing video games in the basement and reads Nazi blogs on his lunch hour in the high school cafeteria.      
    • @Mr. Scot   I am happy for the good, and sad for the bad, but, I do know you will do alright. Just keep your eye on the prize, and all will be well. You may be losing this family, so you've got that going for you.   Keep Pounding my friend. Keep Pounding.
