Re: why no extension?

His May 5 roster bonus that's due to him has something to do with the negotiations. I don't really follow all the salary cap rules so I don't know exactly what it is, but figuring out that piece is the hold up

Good article that looks at the numbers from Football Outsiders

Re: why no extension?

So i had a crazy thought. With the Rams likely to select Bradford, and the Redskins signing McNabb, but not immediately extending his contract, the Redskins are in prime position to corner the QB market this offseason if they selected Jimmy Clausen with the #4 overall pick.

Oakland and Buffalo, at minimum, would be willing to give us a favorable deal for the QBs of their choice, as they would have no other viable alternatives (Colt McCoy and Tim Tebow are nowhere near ready to start). Here's what we could conceivably do and how it would play out:

1) Get Oakland and Buffalo (and whoever else is interested) in a bidding war for Clausen (and/or McNabb).
2) Whoever offers the best deal gets either Clausen or McNabb.
3) The loser gets Jason Campbell for an above-market price.
4) The Redskins get McNabb or Clausen as its franchise QB and a plethora of draft picks and players
5) I am heralded as a genius for calling it over a week in advance

Then it all backfires when Pittsburgh puts Roethlisberger into the mix as trade bait.

Re: why no extension?

I don't think the market for Rothlisberger would be that much greater than Vicks. Sure, someone would take him, but no one's going to want to commit to a franchise QB that may very well wind up in jail based on his recent behavior. he's shown no signs of actually learning anything, although only time will tell. Maybe i'm somewhat biased, because i really, really, hate the guy.

Re: why no extension?

Can we change the title of this thread to "Why so serious?" I know it doesn't fit the topic but I think it would just make the thread cooler.

I'm reporting the Eagles and Kevin Kolb have agreed on a one-year contract extension with roughly $12.26 million guaranteed.
Is that what we are expecting for McNabb? Does it impact the negotiations with McNabb?

Adam_Schefter

Filed to ESPN: As a sign that he is their future, the Philadelphia Eagles extended quarterback Kevin Kolb's contract one year.
