If we had signed Lloyd to an offer sheet, the 49ers could have matched, but we wouldn't have had to give up a third. He's probably gonna get a large deal anyway, so I don't know why we just didn't give him one comparable to the deal the Hawks gave Burleson.

IF the Redskins Has did what the Vikings or Hawks did man you would have never heard the end of it! Danny would have been the Bonds of the NFL! But nothing will be said about the hot war going on between the Hawks and Vikings. Both teams will be given a pass and the owners will never a word about what they are doing!

cause then we'd have to give the 49ers a 1st rounder, which we don't have, so we couldn't have made a deal in the first place.

I am guessing that the contract is back loaded. The 49 million number was used in spite. Also, only 5.25 is guaranteed which is really what matters. They could drop him after a year or two and it wouldn't hurt that bad.

Oh man what a great tactic! wtf why didnt dannyboy think of this first?
He did. We signed all the people that the Bears wanted.

It's called keep-away.

Well, if that really is the case. Good for the Seahawks. Let your pride and egos get in the way of what's good for your team.

In reality it is a 4 year $14.4m contract with $3.5m signing bonus. The last three years are just dummy years to make the guaranteed contract too unwieldy to match.

Re: Payback: Seahawks signed Burlseson from Vikes

Wait how does anyone consider this payback. First the Vikings take away half of the reason that the Seahawks were so effective running left then the Seahawks overpay a reciever the Vikings didn't want anymore. If anything the Vikings just hit the Seahawks with a nice one-two punch

Yeah, but ya know, at least the Hawks proved that they won't be outdicked by anyone.

They didn't overpay and it was the Vikings #1 guy. You don't think that hurt them? Now they are a K-Rob cocktail away from Marcus Robinson being the go to guy.
