Much Needed.

Batch must be on cloud nine. He came into this season wondering if he would have a job, now he won a ring in his hometown, and is getting a new contract to boot.

Charlie Batch, props to you.

Yep. The guy never moaned or complained. When he came in this season he took advantage of his opportunity and played good ball. Homestead Charlie is staying in Da'Burgh. Hopefully.

he seized the bull by the horns, thats for sure. he made more money than maddox as his back up. i think we can rest assured he wont make more $$$ than ben as his.

which raises an interresting question. does batch get paid more than maddox was last year? that would really piss maddox off! the norm or average in the nfl is about $2mil year for a backup. sage rosenfels pretty much got a little less than that to back up david carr (so much for that job tommy). if batch signs a 4 year deal for any less than $7-8 mil. he is definitely giving a hometown discount.

Good deal. We still will have to draft a 3rd.
