Brunell Reworks Deal (FKA "Brunell Reluctant to Renegotiate Deal")

Redskins8588 just posted an article from the WP indicating that Brunell doesn't want to redo his deal.

Brunell has a $4 million base salary for 2006, the second highest on the team, and his agent refused to convert his salary into a signing bonus. The proposed restructured deal would shave a few million off of our cap next season.

What gives Mark? Thanks for helping us out last season, but we need your help again ... in bad, bad way. Hopefully this will get sorted out.

Re: Brunell Reluctant to Renegotiate Deal

I find it hard to beleive that Mark won't restructure. I would think if Coach Gibbs gives him a call and ask for help Mark would reconsider. Here lately I just dont know what to beleive. There is no reason why he should not redo his deal. If Gibbs did not beleive in him he would of been a back up QB the past 2 seasons.

That's not away to make friends is it? Well maybe the wrong guy needs to go! Would I be heart broken if the CBA is not done and Burnell is cut not Ramsey? No if he isn't going to help out!!! See ya Mark ..have fun as a Jet! After all those hits!!!

Brunnel=Bitch if he doens't help us. we helped him. Gibbs helped him. He sucked ass. We gave him another shot. He got good. he became a bitch. plain and Simple. Every player that does not help us in this tough time, expecially if they owe us, is a bitch

Redskins8588 isn't a new member he has been here twice as long as me. I might be a new member but i have been here for over a year.:confused:

Re: Brunell Reluctant to Renegotiate Deal

It does suck that Brunnell will not help us out in our time of need, I mean hell we gave him a second chance this year, well Gibbs did, it is the least that he could do. I do not think that many teams would have given him the oppertunity that he was given this year after such a horrible outing in 2004...

Yup, you're right. Sorry, Redskins8588 I got you confused with another member with a similar screen name (Redskins + numbers). :smashfrea

Re: Brunell Reluctant to Renegotiate Deal

If this is true
Brunell=bitch
Ramsey still one of my favorite players. I know I want him to do good when he leaves(even though it makes us look bad) because he has been a model team player. He is always exited. He is jumping around all happy when we do good and is a true redskin. He is the man. I have a feeling he would give up a lot of money if we gave him shots like we give brunell. At the second dallas game I got real close to the redskins bench and Ramsey was running around hitting people on their heads and going wooooo. No one else was acting crazy exited but he was, a back-up.

Brunell owes gibbs and the skins his legacy as a player. If he is going to be a jackass we should have dropped his ass before this season and he could go into retirement dishonored and with a tarnished legacy.

Re: Brunell Reluctant to Renegotiate Deal

yeah there is a crazy look alike that goes by redskins88, but not to be confused with me, redskins8588, the 85 my old football number, and the 88 is for dale jarrett, nascar driver who pretty much got his start with Gibbs... But no harm no foul, it happens...

Thanks, apparently I had a massive brain fart. I think the CBA impasse may be causing my brain to malfunction.

I'm freaking out right now.

Re: Brunell Reluctant to Renegotiate Deal

My guess is that this decision is less about Brunell the person than it is about Brunell the union member. He's probably, as are other NFL players around the league, been instructed to not acquiesce during this time of negotiations

OK, so if he doesn't restructure if we need him to after the negotiations are done I will lose respect for him.

TAFKAS makes a very good point here. Brunell might be siding with the union. Brunell might not want to make a deal until he knows whether or not an extension will be reached. If an extension is reached, Brunell might not want to restructure out of self-preservation. If I understand the salary cap correctly and a deal is reached, there will be a cap, albeit a larger one, in 2007. If Brunell restructures his cap figure in 2007 will increase by a few million; making it more likely that he will be a cap casualty in 2007.

Re: Brunell Reluctant to Renegotiate Deal

We don't have enough facts to make any kind of judgment of Brunell at this point. For all we know he was offered the league minimum. I believe Mark will restructure to help the team but it should be equitable for both parties. Until we know what he is turning down we are jumping the gun.

Re: Brunell Reluctant to Renegotiate Deal

depending on players to restructure every year is a stupid idea. no one wants to restructure, it makes getting cut next year much more likely, and if you're cut, you're losing money.

If you didn't think there'd be problems playing with people's contracts, you're fooling yourself.

Re: Brunell Reluctant to Renegotiate Deal

AHHHH my kind of thread, I would laugh my A** off if this guy doesn't restructure, Gibbs has kept him off the scrap heap the last 2 years, and basically treated Brunell like the son he never had, if he turns around and thumbs his nose at him and refuses to restructure, that would be classic. I seriously doubt that would happen, he's already made far more money with us than he would have with any other team, he owes Gibbs big time.

He may be hearing grumblings that he's no longer the teachers pet, as Gibbs is going to push hard for Campbell this season, and he's not going to take a pay cut to sit the bench, perhaps he overheard Saunders evaluation of him and it ain't good. Welcome to Ramseys world Mark.

Perhaps the Jets or Dolphins would give up a high pick for Brunell? You know because he's so good. Don't make me laugh.
