@RapSheet: Packers and Jordy Nelson have struck a deal. It’s a 4-year extension worth $39M, source says. Huge. $14.2M guaranteed.

Ridiculous but if we win the West the next 2 years, they come to Denver for the next 3 years in the regular season.

Still lame though.

My point is that Skittles is 28 years old with close to 2,000 NFL touches....he's looking for one last big payday as he closes in on 30 years old and I doubt Seattle will give him the money he's looking for.

Ideally, Seattle would love to have Marshawn Lynch play out the last two seasons on his deal and wear him into the ground those two years to get everything out of him and then hand things over to their other talented younger backs.
I agree with most of that but the point is none of Michael/Turbin have proven nothing that they can handle the load in the NFL, yet.

Beast Mode, has.

Although i disagree on the bottom, i think this is Lynch's last year in Seattle.

Ugh, can't think this is going to help getting the DT negotiations done soon. He deserves to get paid, of course--I just hope the Broncos find a good way to do it.

Also, the notoriously cheap Bengals can't like what this means for AJ Green.

@RapSheet: #49ers fear RB Kendall Hunter’s knee injury is one that could be significant. Waiting on MRI results now.

Meh, this doesnt have much affect with it, i dont think.

It's under 10 mil a year.

I doubt Elway is offering DT, 10 mil a year.

It will probably cost 11-13.5 mil a year per year at least.

But it is a little frustrating other teams are signing some of their players to extensions and nothing has happened with DT/JT, yet, shrugs.

Haden got paid, Sherman/Earl got big deals, Jordy just got paid, Graham got paid, Charles, etc, etc among many others.

Not really. We'd be lucky to get DT at this price. I'm sure they are way past these numbers in their negotiations.

Vic said this re: Jordy deal.

Vic Lombardi @VicLombardi 4-yrs, $39 million for Jordy Nelson. $14.2 mil guranteed. If that's the market rate, DT looking at least $30-mil guaranteed.

Well from the reports that were out there already, they were discussing like somewhere above 12 a year but below Megatron, so that would be in line with it.

like that defensive line needed any more good players, Quinn and long are already too much to handle.

Wasn't impressed with him at all when we played Pitt. Maybe he was having a bad day. Played better in his bowl.

Fishers D should be solid

Pete Carroll on Marshawn Lynch's holdout: 'It's a contract for a reason'

RENTON, Wash. – Two or three years down the line, Richard Sherman or Earl Thomas might feel much like Marshawn Lynch does now: underpaid on a contract that once helped set the market with multiple years to go.

Lynch began his holdout Friday in hopes the Seattle Seahawks will upgrade his deal, which has two years and $13 million remaining. But the precedent such an upgrade would set is perhaps the most important reason the Seahawks don't seem interested in appeasing their star running back with more money.

"It's a contract for a reason. We made a decision and it was signed, by us and by them," Carroll told USA TODAY Sports after the Seahawks' first training camp practice. "We expect them to honor their contract just as we will. We're going to honor it and we expect them to do the same. …

"We've had a big plan for a long time working here, and Marshawn is a huge part of that plan, and we made a huge commitment to him a couple years ago. He remains a big part of that plan – if he'll show up. The same thing will carry over to Doug (Baldwin) and Richard and Earl and Kam (Chancellor) and all of the guys that have signed with us."

Carroll said he doesn't have any idea when or if Lynch might show up. He faces a $30,000 fine for each day he misses and partial signing bonus forfeiture if his absence reaches six days.

The more I hear about Pete Carroll the more I like him. His point is completely valid.

...and Deion "Pay the Man" Sanders can piss up a tree.

AGREED. I have always thought this about renewing contracts early. They both agreed to a contract. If you had a good year so what? you still signed a contract, If you had a bad year should the team renew the contract for less?

I think this is a big dick showing contest after charles got paid.

ummm...the teams do it all the time. You are not familiar with the take a pay cut or be released scenario that plays out yearly?

he has no point. teams don't honor contracts at all. how many players play out the entirety of their deal?

the second a player is even marginally overpaid or the team in question has cap problems, the contract is torn up and the player is released or renegotiated. that happens far more often than a player holding out and getting a raise. but teams can easily pull out the "it's a contract" card whenever they want, because fans are much more likely to side with the team, whose interests align with their own, than they are to side with a player.
