And, btw, for all the ass-kissing and grovelling Synder and Gibbs have done, Courtney Brown still hasn't committed to them and has moved onto Seattle.
Money wasn't the point that Heave made whatsoever. It was putting priorities in perspective. Management has had plenty of time to deal with the Pryce issue, well before the time Douglas became a free agent.
Also, it's not "cut and dried" what Denver can offer anyone. Finally, I am not saying Shanahan needed to fly to Baltimore to kiss his ass, like Gibbs did with Brown, but maybe a one on one conversation would be good for both parties, or I guess he can just text message him with his Nextell phone.
At that point, why even bother wasting the airfare? He's got a damn computer right?
