    He's almost 32, two years is about all anyone would give him.

    From what I have read, that is about the case. The Patriots low balled him. His agent described their offer as "laughable".

    Re: NFL Thread

    Yet, we were willing to give Danny Amendola 5 years/31m? Wtf? How does this make sense?

    I guess, but he was surely worth at least 7-8m a year to us...

    Supposedly, we offered two years/10m and weren't wiling to pay anything for him.

    The thing is though that we had to give him the money. Even if he is older, he makes so many key catches for us. He caught 118 passes last season, six more than all of the other Pats WRs combined.

    Re: NFL Thread

    This is rather disappointing. However, this was bound to happen given both sides weren't able to really compromise in contract talks for the past several months or year I believe. The Patriots just had to play hard ball. I like Julian E, he's seems like he can be worthy replacement for Wes Welker in the future. However, the Patriots are going to miss a lot of production they would have received next season from Wes by not giving him the contract he deserved, so he would have stayed in New England. He's arguably the best slot receiver in the league and has some of the most reliable hands. He is a production machine year in and year out. PAY THE MAN. Sheesh. I don't blame him for leaving to go to Denver for more money and the chance to play along side the greatest regular season QB in Peyton Manning. Good luck to him.

    Re: NFL Thread

    The thing is that we paid hm 9.5m last season for the franchise tag, so I can't believe we couldn't have offered him 7 or 8m a season

    Nice pick up for the Ravens with the acquisition of Elvis Dumervil.

    Re: NFL Thread

    Yeah, there were rumors about it last week. Even after purging and adding Canty and Spears, we were still $10m under the cap. Someone mentioned that we could restructure some contracts, so I wondered if they did that. I think it would be worth it for a player of his caliber and bad luck for Denver results in good fortune for us. What a weird story... Supposedly Michael Huff had visited us, but supposedly this draft is super deep at the Safety position and we have 12 picks, so I'm not sure what else we need to do in Free Agency. There are still some cheap options at ILB.

    Re: NFL Thread

    Says it's 5 years/35m (12m guaranteed) and probably some bonuses, as I think ESPN said it averaged out to 8.5m a year.

    Re: NFL Thread

    The first year cap hit is only $2.5m, due to the signing bonus most likely. A drop in the bucket as far as the cap goes.

    Re: NFL Thread

    All of these Bronco fans bashing him. I love it when a good player leaves a team to see the reaction. This was his agent's fault. People act like it isn't commonplace for a player to feel jilted by being released because his team doesn't want to pay him...lol

    We picked up Michael Jenkins. Not a bad acquisition as he's a solid player, but not a star.

    Re: NFL Thread

    Romo gets a ridiculous new contract. 6 years/108m, of which 55m is guaranteed.

    That's what happens when you're owner is also the GM

    He's a better than average quarterback, at least. Bet the deal backfires in few years. I here it's backloaded.

    Re: NFL Thread

    I don't care whether it's backloaded or not. It's 55m guaranteed and that's the problem. More than that, you could've given Romo like 6 years/70m and he would've jumped at it. Romo's not the man to lead the Cowboys to glory, however, so it's a bad move no matter how you look at it.

    So we apparently signed Rolando McClaim. We definitely need help there, lets see if the guy can get his head straight. He has talent.
