We will have plenty money if doomerville takes a pay cut, dj williams makes too much he wont be back mking 9 million, hamp bailey will have to take a pay cut and if peyton wants to help us get better and resign our own guys hell take 14 million instead pf 20.
Doom, Manning and Champ wont take pay cuts and nor do we need them to
Thats dumb, so doom is worth 18 million a year? Lmao, champs worth 18 million? If they dont take pay cuts I guarantee there traded or released.
All of them need pay cuts if were building some (dynasty)
Doom gets 14 in base salary next season, <500K in signing bonus, and theres 4.25 he can earn through incentives. So in actuality his salary is 14.5 next year and the extra is based on his performance. After that his base salary goes down annually by 2 mil per year
Champ is not making anywhere NEAR 18 million, this year his base is 8 mil with 1.5 in incentives, and next season his base is 9 with 1.5 in incentives.. I can do the math for you if you need.
Manning is worth all of the 20 hes getting next season, have you seen him play this year? Not only that, contracts, along with the salary cap, inflate every year, by year 3 Manning might not even be a top 5 paid QB anymore.
NOT ONLY that, but ALL THREE of the guys we're talking about have very friendly contracts in terms of doing bonus-to-salary; salary-to-bonus reworks to clear cap room in ANY given season.. Look it up
dumervil is not worth 14 million
Hahaha trading doom and champ if they don't take a paycut. Ain't gonna happen.
Really? Cause thats #6 in base money among DE's.. the only two guys getting more, who are worth more than he is are Julius Peppers and Jared Allen.
Like BK said a few days ago, pass rushers have and always will get paid. If we dont pay Doom that, there are plenty of other teams that will. Hes at 7 sacks and 5 FF so far this year.. im not 100% certain but 7 is probably good enough for top 10-15 in the league and isnt 5 FF tied for, or best in the league
Also I'll add that Doom has 1 more sack than Peppers and is tied with Allen at this point, more tackles than both, and 4 more FF than both. If we're gonna discuss value for your dollar I think i just put that to rest
Btw first post on a tablet. Didn‘t butcher anything too bad. I don't know how this is so hard for you et.
The 3 highest paid positions in the NFL are QB, pass rushers, and DBs. Is it a coincidence that our 3 highest paid players play those positions?
Dumervil is worth every bit what he is getting (see here). He is tied for 10th in the league in sacks (only 3.5 sacks behind the league leader). He is tied for 2nd in forced fumbles (only 2 behind the leader). The great part about his contract is that (as nykol pointed out) it reduces by $2 mil every year. So by default he has "paycuts" built into his contract.
Bailey is also worth every bit of the $10 mil we owe him over the final 2 years of his contract (see here). He has shut down every WR he has faced this year save AJ Green who has been shut down by no one. He is invaluable and will continue to be when/if he converts to FS.
Finally, anyone who thinks that Manning needs to take a pay cut is up in the night. He has proven to be every bit of what he was before surgeries and is arguably the best QB in the league right now. MVP caliber QBs are worth $20 mil period.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood..... Nobody!"
im surprised that a left tackle isnt paid more than a corner
