I don't follow too much the contracts by position, I think Haynesworth got around $100 million. I don't know how many years it was for.

Get paid now :noidea:- one low block and your market value is shredded along with your knee

Harder to take the year off before you hit free agency as an interior lineman than it was for a recent Steelers WR

Has to be happy there and the team must value his services too. They signed him before allowing other teams to get in his head with counter offers. We'll have to deal with his azz twice/yr for the next 5 yrs.

He's definitely at the top of his game. We're going to have to get our game together to beat that front line they've got. We can do it though, we had them pretty good in that second game last year. It's going to be a tough fight though.

Since when does Mike Brown actually spend money?

they showed this on HardKnocks...

Mr Brown looked like he wanted to puke when he saw geno, shook his hand and congratulated him after the ink had dried.

They're going to run out of cap room when they have to resign Dalton and Green too.

They're going to run out of cap room when they have to resign Dalton and Green too.they have more cap room than 75% of the teams in the NFL. probably 30-40 million.

i bet you they front loaded atkins contract to eat up alot of that cap room so the hit in future years will be minimal.
