They already spent a second rounder, they were gonna pay him regardless. Do you doubt Jimmy G?

It's not about whether or not I doubt him.  JG is a commodity.  He's a professional football QB.  He's now signed the largest deal in the history of the NFL.  What has JG done?  He has started seven games.  He was backup to Tom Brady.  He looked good in his starts.  Agree.  Y/N

 

The QB salary was altered because a lot of young, inexperienced players got paid way more than vets.  JG is now paid more that Rodgers, Brady, Ryan and a whole to of other QBs who have proved they can play season after season of top performances.  They also get paid for durability.  JG got hurt after his first three games.

 

Zach M came out and wowed the league in preseason.  Lots of smart football people said he was starter material.  The Titans could have traded him for a high pick.  After he got more pt, opinions changed.  Highest paid QB in the league is expected to win big and stay on the field.  JG, like ZM has not shown he can do either.

And may I add, SF is like the guy who takes the best D in the first round of your fantasy league draft.  You're glad because you know there will be more value in round two.  Let them go sign OBJ, too.  He'll need weapons.

Puts Titans, along with every other team facing a QB negotiation, in a very tough spot.

 

$30 million is a pile to absorb into the salary cap. Aaron Rodgers had the biggest number at $19,800,000 in base.


Add that to Taylor Lewan dollars (Top 5 tackles making 10.2 - 12.5 annually).

 

All of the sudden Titans $50 million in cap space is down to $10.

 

Also tells you that the Titans aren't like to make  3rd contract offers to either Morgan ($6.5) or Orakpo ($7.25) after next season, and that DeMarco is a likely cap hit this year ($6.25).

 

Not sure what SF was thinking but the fallout from this ridiculous salary hike is going to be brutal across the NFL.

If the cap goes up another 10%, somewhere around $18,000,000, it still puts teams in a financial bind.

 

Garoppolo won't stay the highest paid QB this offseason. 

 

But if I'm the agency for MM, I absolutely am arguing that he is more proven than JG and deserves every penny of what JG got paid.

I'm sure Cousins agent is loving life right about now.

I hate that there are other positions in the nfl that get paid nowhere near the same amount and don’t get the same protection from the league yet put their body on the line way more and are just as vital to the team. 

Name one position just as, or more, vital to the team than QB.

There's an easy solution for the Titans.  Just go out and spend 45M in fantasy free agency this year and then proclaim it's a cheap year. /s

Not really.  Some positions don't get much if any more money.  Teams have to skimp somewhere so what really happens is more and more inequality.  For example, a team might pay a QB and LT a record deal but pay most of the rest of the line, RBs and borderline starters peanuts.  If I were the union I'd want higher minimum salaries and a % CAP ceiling on other contracts.  These guys are risking their brains, knees and such so some guy can make 20X what they do.  There obviously needs to be differences in pay rates but not so extreme there is a huge gorge between the top and bottom.   

So... you're against pure capitalism and you're for a higher minimum wage? Damn commie liberal

Robert Kraft is a total moron

 

The Pats possibly had a Montana to Young situation and blew it. 

 

 

Yep and Belichick knew it and was most likely preparing to make another long run with Jimmy G and entertaining thoughts of Brady leaving New England when Kraft found out and put the hammer down saying to Belichick no way are you trading Brady. Kraft could've had another potential decade plus of title caliber football. Oh well i am glad because Brady doesn't have long and Belichick either and soon New England will no longer hold power in the AFC which is good for us.

2018 will decide what kind of leverage Mariota has
