Re: Around the NFL - Offseason thread

Theismann's argument is flawed because it is not an either/or. You can sign PM and draft his protege at the same time, making us set at QB for years to come.

I agree, I think bring in Manning for a 2 year contract or 3 and draft a Rookie this year or next. He's better at 80% than most rookies would be anyway

Not before he takes your $10M+ signing bonus... unless there is a clause for that.

Re: Around the NFL - Offseason thread

I couldn't agree more with JoeyT, haven't we learned from signing Haynesworth and Hall? Character is not an issue here, but age and health are. Why mortgage the future by paying a big sum of money, instead of doing the right thing by finding someone else. Hopefully common sense prevails and they pass on him or someone else takes a chance on him.

Chances are the contract is going to have a signing bonus which we will not be able to recoup if he fails another drug tests. That's money lost and money that counts against our cap. I haven't seen a contract yet that makes players give back signing bonus money for being suspended/jailed/etc. The only case I've seen signing bonus money returned is when players retire. You probably won't see one either because I'm sure the NFLPA won't allow it.


Not even sure why you would think it's a good idea to reward bad behavior.

Why can't we sign PM and also draft a qb?

3. Does Peyton fit our system of bootlegs and roll outs?
4. Will Peyton get along with both shanahans?
5. Do we want to tie so much money into the QB situation, should we really draft RG3 by trading with St. Louis?
6. How much upgrading do we need on our OL and WR's?
7. Do we change our whole offense now, for one player?
8. Do we ever learn that signing big name FA QB's doesn't work? Theres always a "Yeah, But..." with all these Big name FA signings and us.
I agree with the FA signings but PM is no d mcnabb, he's a top 5 QB of all time and when healthy he can lead any team far.

Well, yeah, you might lose the bonus money. However, wasn't there a case showing that bonus money can be reclaimed if the player violates NFL rules?

Haven't seen a case yet that require a player to give by signing money unless they retired.

Re: Around the NFL - Offseason thread

Back to Davis. Can someone breakdown the different tags a team can use? Like, which type of tag are the Skins using on Davis?
