Hey! you're welcome ICC - im sure we all enjoy having a little input on this forum.
I certainly dont think you owe anybody any apologies or explanations if Hines Ward doesn't sign - its the players and their agents who seem to grasp the salary cap and its implications about aswell as a penguin might grasp a wet fish!

I wish you luck in signing him up - I just hope you dont break too many traditions to get there - it sets a bad precedent for future salary negotiations.

Oh, not for Ward but our organization. I think you could come to an agreement that he isn't the best but is so important to a team and as a special team guy player that despite the difference in signing bonuses so far we should be able to settle on something. So play hard ball with Plax, fine. Play it with Ward and I'll wonder what we are doing this year.

PS - as for traditions, we have always set a standard of redoing deals with one year left so it would be strange not to do it for ward(who deserves it), after we broke it for Tommy (who became our backup). Thats the standard I'm afraid of setting.
