Default Greg Jennings Deal Done- Template for BM??

Quote:

On the heels of a local Milwaukee TV report that Greg Jennings’ contract extension has been finalized, more details about the proposed deal are emerging.

ESPN.com’s John Clayton says the Packers and Jennings are nearing a three-year contract extension through 2012 that will include a minimum of $27 million in new money. It can be worth as much as $30 million if he performs at a “Pro Bowl level.” Jennings was scheduled to make $535,000 in 2009.

Clayton also reports that some language in the contract has to be worked out before it is sent to the NFL Management Council and signed. So it’s not exactly a “done deal” just yet.

The original report by Fox6 Sports said Jennings would become the second highest paid receiver in the league, but that is open for interpretation. Clayton’s numbers indicate that Jennings will average under $7 million for the next four seasons.

T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Roy Williams, and Andre Johnson all make more money per season. Antonio Bryant will make $9.88 million as Tampa’s franchise player in 2009.

Still, the deal looks like a fair one for both sides. Jennings didn’t break the bank, but he’s likely to make it to the end of the contract, barring major injuries. He will get to re-enter the free agent market in 2013 at age 29, and possibly strike it rich again.

Heck, Brett Favre may have even retired by then.

UPDATE: Two local rags have also confirmed the agreement.
Lets use this as a solid template to get BM deals done.

But there's a difference, Greg Jennings, whom I've had the pleasure of meeting while he was at Western Michigan, is easier to deal with than a Brandon Marshall, who pouts.

I love how a guy who plays preseason and 15 regular season games through a severe hip injury is protrayed as a whiner.

What is next, calling John Mccain a sissy because he didn't bust out of POW camp?

I think it's a great template, actually. They were both pro bowl alternates last year.

Marshall would say he has 25 more receptions over the last two years than Jennings has in his career, but the yards are close. Of course, he has a lot more arrests, too.

Marshall has to want to sign it, though. I'm not so sure he does with this team, and I'm not so sure Bowlen wants to give it to him.

I'd would trade Jennings for Marshall straight up. I think Marshall is better but not by a lot and Jennings isn't a time bomb waiting to explode and go to jail. Marshall can't help the team suspended or in jail. Jennings has a better knack for the endzone too.

Tell me how many times Jennings went to the pro bowl?

Tell me how many times Jennings caught 100 + balls?

Tell me how many times Jennings went over 1000 yards?

Marshall is and will be the better player.

of course he is
but Jennings doesnt have the rap sheet like he does

His arrests have to be taken into account, considering the next time it happens he will get a lengthy suspension

You forgot to mention total TD's in your evaluation..... + Jenning has been to the playoffs, where BM never has.

Thanks for clearing this up. I was under the impression that making the playoffs was a team accomplishment.

Yes the Juice did just what during his NFL career? Its worthless even talking to some of the people on this board. Talented players like Marshall don't come around that often, sure he has some run ins with the law but other then the DUI nothing has really been proven to be true but **** the values that our law was founded on right? If you think we are going to build a trouble free team and still win the SB in this day and age you are crazy. Even the best teams have some bad eggs running around in the locker room.

Just because someone can catch a ball or run like the wind does not mean you have to dismiss one's serious charactor flaws.... Then pay them what they feel they are worth when they are under contract, all the while they have a pending court case which could cause them to miss 1/2 of the season.

I am glad I am not part of the "ME" generation where you do not have to be held accountable for your actions.

Players that won superbowls with the Broncos were team first players, Not aholes like Brandon Marshall who only gives a rats ass about himself.

Goodell doesnt care, he can suspend him even if he is found not guilty
There is a difference between not being a great person, and constantly getting arrested.
Yeah other teams have bad eggs, but how many have players who have been in trouble with the law as many times as Marshall?

You talking about giving millions and millions to a guy who is one incident away from an 8 game suspension.

I would have zero problem giving him a big contract WITH clauses assuming his hip checks out.
But just handing him a huge contract with the likely chance he will **** up is extremely risky

On a serious note, I think that's how most Bronco fans feel about the situation. Everyone can pretty much agree he's underpaid and deserves a new contract. Just one with clauses to protect the organization when he screws up again. And it's a matter of when not if Marshall screws up again.

you're going down the wrong path...

my point is that they are not comparable...

Jennings is a great talent as is Marshall but only one of them is a huge suspension risk...

oh and since you bring it up...Jennings had more yards and TDs than Marshall did last season...so lets not get ahead of ourselves here...

I fully expect Bowlen to "forget" hus promise to BM, and him to be forced to report, and be unhappy all year, and then we RFA tag him for '10 with a 1st tender.

That's about in line with what I expect from Der Fuhrer.

That's all fine and dandy. And if it comes to that they should give him the high tender.

But the fact remains that he is worth more than the $3+ million that tender is worth; off the field problems and all.

It's a very tricky and risky situation for sure. But if you can get him signed and happy for the Jennings extension I say you do it.

Neither camp is willing to do it now, that is safe to assume. But if he is happy and works hard at that price, the club is mnimizing their risk with the short terms of the contract. If there's conduct clauses in there it's even better. But at that price, he's a great asset to have. I would even venture to say he's tradable even if he ****s up and gets suspended for 8 games. For what, I don't know. But someone would want that talent.
