$30M signing bonus!

I just choked on my soda.

I wish I had some of that. But from a pass rushing stand point. He does deserve a big day. But it;s funny people are shocked now. The market will only get bigger so soon you will se 7 year 100 million dollar deals with like 45 million dollars guaranteed.

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.

Does that mean he could possibly be released?

Apparently hes been of the PUP since the season ended (its automatic)
But i bet they will release or trade him once some DT's go down in preseason

"Hey one thing everyone forgot to mention - the good thing about this is now Freeney is off the market and Synder does not have the chance to overpay him and kill our cap! Thank you Colts for preventing our owner from tripping over his own 2 feet again!"

Until next year when The Danny goes after Julius peppers or one of the other top flight guys (Burgess, Schoebel, etc.) and makes one of them "the highest paid defensive player in history" (which im willing to bet there will be a new one every year for the next few)

That's probably right, skinswill, especially if we're decent and make the playoffs and are "just one player away from the SB"!

(And even if it's a good pickup, the press will hate it...)

Forgot about Peppers - your right and I would not be surprised if we go after that one missing piece. I guess with Peppers you can say at least he can play effectively against the run and pass the rusher.

One thing that is going in our favor though the SKins did not go crazy and go after any restricted free agents this year and have all our picks next year so at least we are loaded on that front.
