When you cut a player that is under contract you still have to pay the man. It's not like cutting him voids the guaranteed money.

You only pay the signing prorated signing bonus. You do not pay the contract like Baseball and the NBA do.

Should Denver have kept Tebow and made him the backup RB?

The thing is Jacksonville is not going to release MJD nor cut him. The Broncos will have to trade for him and that is the problem. There's no way he's worth a first round pick yet that is exactly what Jacksonville will expect.

I'm pretty sure you pay the "guaranteed" money, whatever that is. That's why it's called guaranteed because the team pays it no matter what happens. The Broncos under Shanny did this a lot, paying out "dead" money to players no longer on the team.

Maybe, if MJD holds firm to his holdout they'll let him go for a 2nd. It's hard to predict his value now. I know on the Jaguar boards I was on they were saying no way they would get a 1st for him. THe longer this plays out the cheaper he will become.

Not sure he'll be as cheap as you think. He's looking to get another chunk guaranteed before he's too old to command top dollar. His last contract was frontloaded so he's averaged considerably more than $4.5 per year. Looks like he got $8 last year.

Yeah he got $8 mill last year but this year he is gettign $4.5 and if the Jags do not budge Im sure he'd rather have $6.25 with a $12 million signing bonus from the Broncos over the $4.5 he will make from the Jags, if he shows up.

Players love those signing bonuses and I'm sure he'd love to deposit another $12 million into his bank account.

I do agree with you though it is all speculation. I just wish the Broncos would look into it and see what it would take.

Speculate? It's what we do.

Problem as I see it is if they really decide to move him, they'll probably have his agent shop around for the team most willing to pay him (and the Jags in picks)

So the comparison shouldn't be to what he's making this year. It's to what other teams would be willing to pay.

Hopefully we wouldn't be dumb enough to front-load another big contract for him now that he's only a few years away from his expiration date.

The dead money Shanny dealt with was cap related and not payroll related. In other words, all that dead money counted against the cap in future years after guys were cut, but the actual money was already paid to the player before they were cut.

Most of today's "guaranteed" money that isn't paid upfront are specifically called "roster bonuses" and are only paid at certain dates in the future if they're still on the roster. Peyton Manning is all too familiar with those. If you get cut before then, you owe them nothing, like the Colts with Peyton.

Did people miss the ~30 yard catch down the sideline Ball made against the 49ers or something?

Full credit, that was a good play. Perfect throw more than anything though, it's not like Ball needed to make a great effort on the catch or run a precise route or anything.

Good point but, we already have a guys like that in Moreno and Hillman. I want a guy that can tote the rock for 30 plus yds which none of the backups have so far. Willis M. can but, would love another guy or two to make big plays from LOS.

I don't mean to pick on you, but you do realize that these are COMPLETELY opposite statements, don't you?



You keep stating these 8-10 mil numbers as if it's a given. It's not. I guarantee you whatever contract he signs will be for no more than $6.5 per year, if he even signs a new contract. And with regard to the 2nd part of your statement, there are PLENTY of instances of guys not being paid by their current teams, yet getting paid elsewhere and performing well. Hell, there was a time not long ago when guys like Portis and Sharpe weren't shown the money by us. It had nothing to do with their performance. It's just that we budgeted so much to the position or whatever and wouldn't budge.
Guarantee huh ahahahahaha

He wants top RB money and that is not 6.5.

Besides to the best of my knowledge JAX has no intention of getting rid of him.. So this is all moot..

Going on Midnite here so nite nite..

FWIW sharpe was on the downside of his career by the time he left..

Poorti$$$$ just a greedy punk that even Mikey knew was a head case and going to be a locker room issue.

Him and mike bell both money inside the ten..

But but but they are slow they can't out run anyone.. BFD not there job.

This is a passing league yet no one wants to get it. You pass for first downs and an occasional TD but you run it inside the five unless you have NE's TEs.
Mike and Mike could do that even with our Mickey mouse OL..

Is has how many years in the league and Sharoe had how many HUGE difference.

As for not getting it your correct and I hope that John is not dumb enough to pay him. I'd rather go with youth and build the team that way..

Your guy wants to lead the league in yards which is not compatible with Manning.. Not sure why you do not get that..

If a contract is guaranteed he gets that money. Period. Mostly it is paid up front but if not then he still gets that money..

As for it being prorated yes the remaining money is divided perhaps over two years but no more depending on when he is cut..

It is very compatible. Not sure why YOU don't get that.

For the second time now, Elway and TD made it work, did they not?
