haynesworth got slightly more, on a 4 year, 48 mill gauranteed deal...less per year but more available overall if he doesnt start sucking again without a big WR.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Eli Manning has agreed to a new six-year, $97 million contract extension with the New York Giants that will make him the highest paid player in the NFL with an average salary of roughly $15.3 million.

A person close to the talks who asked not to be identified because the deal was not signed says Manning is guaranteed $35 million under the deal which will keep him with the Giants through the 2015 season.

Manning, who led the Giants to a Super Bowl upset of the New England Patriots in February 2008 and was named the MVP of the game, was in the final year of the contract he signed as the No. 1 overall pick in 2004.

Manning took over as the Giants starter midway through his rookie season and he has led New York to the playoffs in each of the past four seasons.

Unreal! That's just crazy money...good for Eli...bad for any team on the verge of extending their franchise QB. Good thing we have Orton!

I think Phillip Rivers will be getting pretty close to that as well. What do you guys think? Rivers is far and away the statistically superior passer, but Eli's team carried him to a Superbowl. Who gets more $$$?

Yeah...it amused me during the election that guys like BMarsh were all about Obama without the realization that Obama and his tax goons would be coming after them.

Rivers will get paid. He's just too successful.

Rivers is easily better than Eli, and also one of the top 5 in the league. His deal should be well north of the $100 million mark, with guarantees near $50 million.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ong-term-deal/ Take this for what it's worth...but it says Eli is guaranteed $35 million. I can't believe he gets more then Peyton (sans endorsements of course). I mean I know he got them a ring or whatever, but really?? That seems excessive. He's not nearly as talented as some other QBs in the league. But that all important bling is probably what pushed it over for him.

Oh, boo hoo for him, now he'll only have $40 million to add to his bank-sized vault.

Maybe that's because they realize that even with 50+% taxes they're still rich as ****. Shut the **** up about politics you right-wing goons.

I know that people are bringing up NY taxes in more of a comedic sense, but I'll bet place of business and residence certainly does have a prominent place in the contract debates these guys have with the teams. Not even talking just taxes, but cost of living alone can make a huge difference.

Think about it. $10 million in Green Bay or Kansas City certainly would go a lot further than $10 million in NYC.

Im really excited from a Broncos standpoint. The Rivers contract could hinder the franchise for years to come when it comes to resigning their own free agents. Talents like Merriman, Cromartie, and Sproles will be walking out the door.

Weve seen what the P. Manning contract has done to the Colts franchise. They practically have a new starting defense every season, but they have had outstanding coaching on that side of the ball to make up for the lack of talent outside Freeney, R. Mathis, and Sanders.

SD has not been so fortunante with their defensive coaching. We saw what happened without Merriman last season. They need their top defensive stars to win games. Merriman, L.Castillo, J. Williams, Cromartie, Jammer, S. Phillips...Too many high priced contracts on that side of the ball.

If Phillip gets his deal Merriman will never sign a long term deal with San Diego.


I hope a new CBA gets approved so the Chug get screwed by the cap.

I honestly don't think that could possibly be the case. They still have to fit the money under the same salary cap no matter what. And regardless of where these guys live, they are ridiculously wealthy if they don't waste all of their money. On top of that, most of them don't even live where they play anyway (they have enough money to buy multiple homes) so that shouldn't factor into the decision.

My pops gets subsistence checks when he works out in California.

Roughly equals about 75K more a year when he has to live out there. So you are probably right.

If I were Eli or anyone playing for any East coast team, Id just visit but wouldnt live there. My residence would probably be in Texas, since there are no state income taxes.

Gross generalization based off of the top players. Most players in the NFL are not millionnaires.

Not true. See my comment above. You are generalizing based off of the vast minority of players who make the big $.
