All of our O-line is going to look much better this year because the D won't be able to Key on the QB. Samuels is going to look a lot better blocking down hill.

EVERY team asks players to restructure/take a pay cut. Most NFL contracts are done that way, knowing that it will eventually come to that.
Yeah it may not work in the real world, but in the real world, do the best workers usually make the same or more than their managers??? I think not. The NFL seems to work under different rules.

I think you have to throw out the last couple of years to the highly unorthodox blocking scheme of Spurrier as far as judging Samuels. With Joe Bugel on the job, we'll see Chris Samuels return to Pro Bowl form, as he will be asked to play in a system he will be much more comfortable with.

As far as renegotiating his contract, that is something he will in all likelihood have to do. I wouldn't worry about the comments coming from his agent about Ramsey, who he also represents. The agent is making comments like that because that is what agents do to look good to all their other clients and prospective clients.

Don't mess with the offensive line. They're going to be awesome this season. They gave up a ton of sacks last year (43 sacks, I think). But only gave up 17 sacks in the last 8 games. They gave up four of those sacks in the season finale against Philly (when everyone had already thrown in the towel on the season). So they were starting to gel. Now they'll be lining up for a coach who demands perfection from his O-line. These guys will be ready to go when the season rolls around and all of them will be much improved from last year. Even Samuels.

SkinsRock is right, this is how the NFL works, the Skins aren't the only team that operates this way.

And until I'm being paid millions of dollars to do my job, comparing the NFL to the "real world" just isn't a fair comparison.
