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.

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.

      I got the Polluted From my own observation.  The North Branch of the Sunrise River, At least the part that Runs though The town of  North Branch, Isn't the healthiest.  I Walked by the river in a small park. The River was full of peoples Trash.  Like Washer Machines  and trash bags. People Trash Either ran into the river, or People just dump their trash their.

      All right People, Thanks for the info, next time I have a question about the St. Croix, I'll Post it on the thread. Peltier Sounds good, But your right the rivers are my best bet. Thanks for the link I'll make sure to use it.

      I don’t know who told you the sunrise river is polluted. Aside from a little bit of run off and algae blooms, the river is quite clean. The lower river is a popular summer float tubing spot. Come duck season, it will seem like the whole east metro is packed into Carlos Avery.
