Re: NFL Offseason '14: Wake me up when minicamps start

The numbers on the Dalton contract actually aren't bad. He gets $17 million guaranteed this year, but only $7 million more next year. Everything else is tied up in performance incentives, except for the playoff-related $19 million, which is going to come down to a lot more than just him.

It's honestly a pretty decent deal for both sides. Basically, if he turns into a superstar, they have him locked up, but if he shits the bed, they can cut him after one year with a minimal penalty to the team.

Good contract for an average QB and a good contract for the team.

The NFL is a collection of some of the greediest mother-fuckers I have ever seen.

Seriously. I just read this. Just how significant could even a mega successful act's payment be compared to what the owners make on the T.V. rigts, commercial time, mercahndizing, etc? Payment from an artist would have to be just a drop in a very large bucket to these guys.

As for the artists, I sure can see why they'd play the gig for free, but having to pay the NFL based on "future" concert earnings? Don't know about that one.

I'm liking Tony Gonzalez's prediction for the upcoming season.

Pats have a need at TE if he wants to sign up and bust his own prediction. Makes a good amount of sense if he's interested, Pats also look pretty stacked this year. Improvements from last year's team, and getting back half a dozen pieces that were injured. And with a real defense, could be a serious run...

The Rams are privately believing that Bradford's ACL blew up again, meaning there's going to be a second season of The Shaun Hill Experience.

I'm so sorry, Rams fans.
