Furthermore, teams also have the leverage when a player underperforms as the team can simply "cut" a player and not honor their contract to the player. It works both ways.

If contracts in the NFL were guaranteed, then I would agree with you that it unfair for players to renegotiate in the media.
I would agree with you if they got paid what a normal person gets paid. They get paid on potential, and they get paid if they get injured or under perform.
If they get cut, they still get the signing bonus.

I would like someone to sign me to a 5 year 35 mil contract with a 7 mil signing bonus. I will never play a down and I am still set for life. For LIFE! They get paid millions upon millions to play a game. They need to see themselves as lucky...not deserving.

I don't know if you are right but if there are people who think this then they are retarded. A system back who has suceeded in 2 different schemes over the course of four seasons? When does it become the back and not the system?

In CP's situation (i don't know for sure w/out doing research) but he was most likely making 1/2 mill or so a year. Yea, good money but not enough to set you up after football, which is what most players want.

For example, Javon Walker, last year sat out of Packer camp b/c he was getting paid $400k a year approx. He wound up playing for GB and busting his knee up. Gone for the year and was able to come back and sign a FA contract. What if it was a career ending injury? Again, i see both sides.

Didn't Clinton hate Denver. Didn't he bast them after the trade? Clinton is going to be our next president and will be here for the long run.

I was just about to bring up the same point. Portis is still you ng and just entering his Prime. This is when we need him the most.

Re: broncos & portis

If the Redskins can even muster the cap room needed to trade Portis...wouldn't they most likely use that cap room to add some free agents rather than to trade away a young player that they like?

I know I may be in the minority but while players do get paid millions I think in a lot of ways they are underpaid. The NFL makes multi-millions from TV, merchandise, etc off of what these players do and while some do mkae big money (like your example0 the majority of the league does not. Also with how dangerous this game is they are one play from a serious injury and if they are lucky enough to play a long career end up living with chronic pain and disability the rest of their life. I dont know about you but my knee, hip, head, whatever is worth more to me than a few million $.

Re: broncos & portis

We have only begun to see what Portis can deliver. As the Oline improves, and gels, it will be interesting

Re: broncos & portis

Lets put a stop to this thread! Portis isn't going anywhere and why would any redskin fan want him to? The guy is a franchise back who has proven himself everywhere that he has played. He consistently puts himself and his body on the line for the team and has his best years ahead of him. If JC develops into a decent NFL QB and the skins can stretch the field then CP is just going to get better.

Sure, Betts had a great year but no way is he as good as Portis. Who would you rather have carrying the ball when the pressure is on? Really, there are only a handful of backs in the entire league as good as Portis and he will be the fulcrum of the offense for the next 4 or 5 seasons.
