If Alexander is cut, that entire remaining bonus is accelerated to the cap year of the cut: 8.625 million."

I don't have much info about Alexander's contract, but based on what this guy says Alexander's release fee is $8.625M.
my man, hooking it up! Thank you again!

I still dont see how Jones or Duckett are upgrades over an old Alexander. Id still rather have Shaun

Re: Seahawks Sign RB Duckett

Actually I think his numbers are off since signing bonuses can only be allocated for a max of 6 years.

So Alexander's release fee would actually be $7.67M.

They are probably waiting for June 1st Im guessing, but I have no idea how much cap they have. If they are have the room maybe they will absord it all this year.

Change that. The max allocation period in 2006 (when Alexander signed his contract) was only 5 years.

So Alexander's release fee would actually be $6.9M.

That doesnt seem like to big of a hit to cut the former MVP of the league

Re: Seahawks Signings

Not only that, if they wait until June 1 to cut him (or pre-designate him as a June 1 cut) it's only a 2.3M hit this year and a 4.6M hit in 2009.

Add to that the fact that his cap number in 2008 (per the article and with Canuck's correction for a 5 year salary proration) is 8.212M and cutting him seems like a done deal.

Let me be the first to say it - I'd sign him for the vet minimum.


Actually I wouldn't - I just figured I would get it out of the way).

Re: Seahawks Signings

Looks like they're going to have a decent backfield after all.
ESPN - Jones agrees to four-year deal as Seahawks bolster backfield - NFL

Re: Seahawks Signings

Should be interesting to see how Marion Barber holds up against a 16 game season. Let's just say I have my doubts with the way he runs that he'll survive an entire season.

Hopefully the Cowboys will use their two first round picks to trade up and take Reggie Bush I mean Darren McFadden .

Re: Seahawks Signings

Bengals, Alexander might be a match
Shaun Alexander | Seahawks | Interested: Bengals?
With deals to acquire T.J. Duckett and Julius Jones in the backfield, the Seahawks will have to do something with Alexander, John Clayton reports.
Cutting or trading him doesn?t have much of an impact on the cap. They would lose $150,000 of cap room by trading him. If they put the June 1 cut on him, they would save $4.475 million of cap room.
One interesting option for Alexander could be the Cincinnati Bengals. Alexander grew up in Florence, Ky., and is popular around Cincinnati. For years, there were plenty of rumors that the Bengals might try to acquire him in a trade.

Re: Seahawks Signings

Thats from here, http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/featu...2=stateChanged , espn.com rumor mill

I wonder why teh Bengals would trade for him, Rudi Johnson is a great back. Granted, they have been trying for years to get him a backup, but I think Shaun probably wants to start somewhere

Thats the thing I noticed, I remember watching his highlights and thinking "Man he doesn't exactly seem afraid of contact, but he can't break a tackle against a quality opponent to save his life." I also noticed that on 99% of his best plays no one even touched the guy. Mayock pointed this out to me so obviously I can't take credit, but the guy always goes down on contact.

Heres a YouTube comment I wrote that shows my view on McFadden:

Quote:
Lol, Ironically McFadden is wearing #5. As a Redskin fan I'm praying that the Cowboys draft him. In watching this video his main asset seems to be speed and the ability to outrun defenders. However if he can't break tackles then that speeds not going to do him any good, since there will be plenty of players that will be able to catch him before he hits second gear. I'll have to watch more highlights, but right now I'm starting to think that video should be titled Arkansas O-Line.
