New Contract For T-Jack?

Recommended Posts

Sandmannd

I was reading the paper this morning and one of the writers said it's time to give him an extension. He is in year three of a four year deal and making almost $700k this year. This guy said they should resign him now and would probably be a $5 million bonus and 35 million dollar contract. Is this guy insane??!!!??? What the heck? They guy has played OK, that's it OK the last couple of weeks and that's it. Why would you commit to him now and sign up that kiknd of deal? Let him start and play next year and see if he can do a season. If he can't, cut your losses and get out. You sign him for money now you are stuck and I have a feeling T-Junk will raise his ugly head again next year.

I'd wait to see how he handles a blitzing team today.

He has looked better I'll admit.

It would help if McKinney could stop a D-End same for Cook.

Won't have to wait until next year. Your going to see him raise his ugly head today.

We'll see, I really am pulling for the guy and would like to see the Jack and not the Junk but we'll see. I still say, no matter how he plays the rest of the year to see what he does next year. Why would you rush a contract with an unproven QB??

Well, his rookie contract is up at the end of this year so you either re-sign him or release him. I wouldn't think that the kind of money mentioned earlier here would be necessary to re-sign him. At the worst, he's still a pretty decent back-up which is very hard to find in this league as well. I would re-sign him and actively search for someone to either compete for the starting job or trade for someone in the league much like we did last year with Allen. Quarterbacks mature at different rates and if Jackson can start to get the mental game down he'll be an outstanding Q-back for a long time. He does have top end physical skills.

I also read that if Jackson doesn't do well today and the Vikes lose, the Vikes will be looking to NE to pick up Cassell.

His contract isn't up until the end of next season according to the article I read. He signed a four year up front.

Cassell is going to be NE's 2009 'chise. He'll get the franchise tag.

And that'll be worth about $14.8 million. Not a bad gig if you can get it.

My bad on Jackson's contract if he signed for 4 years. I thought all rookie contracts were for 3 years initially.

After today's game I'd give him a pack of soda crackers and show him the door.

They said on ESPN today ALL teams in the NFL get a $123 million dollar bump to their caps for next season. That's plenty enough to get a great QB in here.

$12.3 million? Can't be $123 million can it?

Isn't there 40 guys on a roster?? That is a little more than $3 mill a pop, totally feasible. Some guys won't see a $3 mill raise, but others will see more than that to make up the diference. Besides, what does the NFL care?? They don't pay it- the owners do.

That's a rediculous amount of money and if it's true then don't tell me you need $200 per ticket now. I would love to go to games but not gonna go when these greedy pigs don't even play hard for the money they make.

I am looking, maybe youre right- I am not sure. Each teams cap was only $109 million, so doubling it doesn't seem feasible. But it did go up $20 mill from the previus year, so I am not too sure.

I heard the same thing about the 123 million bump in the cap. Chris Mortensen was talking about it. Thats why the Pat's can afford to pay Cassell that much money to possibly be a back up.

You are correct, that wasn't how they said it on ESPN, that is why I was thrown off.

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!

      We hunt 108 and are overrun by wolves. You can count the number of deer tracks up there. Same thing to the west of us. Once they deplete the deer enough they either starve or move on. Problem is if they have a neighboring pack the fight is on and they have nowhere to go. So we go through these endless cycles between having deer or having wolves. Biologists have determined a wolf can eat 25 deer a year!
