2013: Do NFL QBs really deserve their contracts? (part two)

Going over to the GM’s side of the deal, he’s mainly interested in making sure the new contract doesn’t kill the cap or break the bank. Some players could be making double digit millions in actual money, but only have a fraction of that count against the cap because of various rules and details in the contract.

2013: Do NFL QBs really deserve their contracts? (part one)

This is a part of a series that will analyze NFL contracts at the quarterback position. It seems that every time another quarterback gets a new contract or some sort of extension, the idea is to beat out the last person’s deal and have something included in the contract that screams “first time ever” or “biggest in NFL history.” These deals will only continue too as long as the salary cap goes up.

And with the way Bynum’s knees seem to be at this point, $12 million is certainly a big gamble even though only half of it is guaranteed. It’s certainly a lot less than the $20+ million he earned last year for doing basically nothing, but it doesn’t come without its risks. But one has to question: … Continue reading

Dwight Howard shopping for a new home

Even though Howard put up really solid numbers for the Lakers this past season, they clearly didn’t accomplish what they wanted and are possibly looking to switch things around.
