Adopt-a-Bronco:
Tim Tebow
Default Why T.Tebow is a bargin - Bradford Signs

The Rams reached agreement on Friday night with quarterback Sam Bradford on a six-year, $78 million contract that reportedly has $50 million guaranteed, according to multiple reports from Jay Glazer at FOX, and the Schefter/Mortensen bus buddies at ESPN. The deal has a max value of $86 million.

To put that number into context, Tebow's deal is 33 million, 8 million guaranteed and 11 million. 24% of the guaranteed money, 16% of the likely value, 40% of the maximum value.

How solid is the first QB in the draft versus the second? Here is the list since 2005:
Bradford, Stafford, Matt Ryan, Jamarcus Russel, Vince Young, Alex Smith,
Second QB Picked in those same years:
Tebow, Sanchez, Flacco, Quinn, Leinart, Rodgers

Now from where I sit, there is not a huge difference between the first list and the second list. If anything, the second list seems even more solid, then the first. Drafting a QB at all is extremely risky. If you are going to risk something, spending 33% of the maximum for a position that seems to have just as good odds for a QB seems like a great way to go.

There was a time when an OU QB playing the position in the NFL was as likely as SD wining a SB.

Bradford's payday is amazing and just one more reason for a rookie cap.....before NFL teams implode.

I can't make a new post, so It's goin here...

McDaniels gives Tebow grief for Jockey deal

Tim Tebow expected some jokes about his recent decision to become an underwear model, but he probably didn't think his coach would be the first to get on his case.

"I told him they passed me over for him. I turned it down," McDaniels said, via the Denver Post.

Tebow's response: "I just wondered if he was a boxer or a brief guy."

Interesting direction to take things, Tim. This is about to get awkward.

"It depends on the day," McDaniels said, when asked a brave followup.

Yeah, it's only a matter of time before we get another hearty postgame man hug from these two.




People are gonna start to talk crap now. They are just jealous of the Broncos sweet Bromance.

I know it's not really that big of a deal, but I spent like 7 minutes MSPainting this McD Jockey pic and I wanted to share.

Completely. Last year #1 pick Stafford got an insane 41.7 million in guaranteed money on a six-year, $72 million deal.

And that's still 9 million less guaranteed than is what is apparently market value a year later for a QB who barely played his senior year (just enough to get seriously injured twice). What the **** is going on, and will they ever slow this train?

The NFL has to find a way to prevent top 10 NFL picks from automatically becoming among the top 10 best paid in the entire league at their position.

I could see the issue of rookie contracts being a divisive issue among the players. Vets are going to argue that they are paying too much to unproven players while vets are not getting the money they deserve for their play. Rooks are going to argue that many of them will be out of the league in 3-4 years and need every penny they can get their hands on.

These top contracts are a joke. Why anyone would ever want to draft #1 overall is beyond me.

Well, there's 'barg-in' (Rodgers), and there's 'barg-out' (Alex Smith). And there's 'bar-git' (Jamarcus). A little barg for every taste.

A little know fact, apparently. What was it exactly, I dimly remember something about it.

There was? What was the cap set at, a billion?

Thats just not true.

He played 2 of his 3 NCAA seasons without a hitch, and in his injured season he was so eager to get back on the field that he pressed and came back too early. People said the same thing about Adrian Peterson.

Bradford will be fine.

Its good for him that he hasnt been hyped nearly as much as Suh, McCoy, Berry, and Tebow. He's a smart kid. He'll take it all in and by his third year he'll be one of the best players in the league.

the top picks are becoming a burden instead of a benefit

I know I wouldnt want Denver to pick in the top ten, I would seriously turn it down for a middle first round pick, the money tied up into one player like that who may not even pan out is counterproductive to the team

I knew it. I predicted McD and Tebow's in the closet relationship months ago after all the ball juice stuff Tebow had to say about his first meeting with McD. At first glance questioning whether or not his coach wears boxers or briefs seems REALLY gay, but then you realize Tebow already knows--his question was a clever smokescreen.

fair enough, I'm just saying that's a lot of guaranteed money for a guy with a history of having a shoulder problem. If he plays up to the contract than great, but the Rams are a bad team and it's more likely he'll get injured his first year the more he plays.

"Our HC and QB are gay together, hee hee hee"...


You are a dumbass. In fact, in the history of dumbass posters on this board, you are tied with Casino Royale, BroncoWarrior and Rastaman for King of the Dumbass. I expect the four of you to engage in a circle jerk over a Cutler poster followed by a round of tummy swords to determine who is the #1 dumbass of all time.
