i know most everyone will poo-poo and dismiss this, but i only provide the link and quote cause i havent found anyone who does more comprehensive research on the steelers and cap situation.

Bryant McFadden is entering the last year of his contract, and I look for the Steelers to extend his contract. I am thinking a five-year contract extension worth $21 million, which includes a $6.5 million signing bonus.
if he can be as good as townsend this would prove to be a great deal.

Even that won't be enough, IMO - too many instances of guys playing out of their heads in their contract year and then coasting after getting the big moolah. It's going to take at least 2 solid years for him to get the money he wants, I think.

Not poo-pooing that at all, because if he can crack the starting lineup, that is actually a reasonable contract. However, if he is retaining the services of Rosenhaus, I think he wants a LOT more than that - think Samuel/Clements type of dough (which he isn't anywhere near worth, at least at the moment).

rosenhaus has a bad rap. everybody panic'd when l. timmons selected him as his agent last year, and thought he would STILL be holding out.

im pretty sure he was the second 1st round pick to sign after g. olson, and before relying on other 1st rounders to sign and establish a market. the negotiations were smooth and easy.


drew isnt dumb, and he knows who he is dealing with. omar kahn and the steelers know market value as well as anybody.

Good point - I still have a personal bias against Rosenhaus over the "T.O. Affair" myself.

You know, now that I think about it, Rosenhaus did seem to understand who he was dealing with in the Steelers.

Which goes to show that the STeelers way of doing things does make an impact.

1st rounders are always the last to sign cause all the agents and teams wanna wait and see what all the other teams are doing , for fear of getting ripped off. a perfect scenario they hope for is the 14th and 16th pick already being signed to establish the value of #15.

the steelers or rosenhaus werent worried about any of this crap, because they are professionals and very experienced. they are strong enough to be the "icebreakers" and not worry about who "got over" on who.

its a respectable and confident way to handle negotiations, if you ask me.

i like drew. he does his job and he does it well, while making his clients tons of money. every athelete whishes to be promoted the way he does his.
