Soon as Allen sign with Seattle, Wooten or Phillips coming on down.
I wouldn't mind Phillips but we'll probably go with a guy like Ayers. He's a cheaper option.
I do not think what Allen does is impacting what we do. I think as soon as we decided on Melton, he was out of the picture entirely.
I would tend to agree.
I think it was an either/or decision between the two needs, never both.
After all, we have a limited amount of money to spend without digging the hole deeper.
But I do hope they take a look at Wootton.
(man that name always looks misspelled!)
Maybe, but I will wait to see what he signs his name too in Seattle before I make that conclusion.
Honestly, I think if Wootton was an option, he would have been here. There is a chance that maybe he is not what Marinelli truly wants.
Just because he played for him does not mean he is a target.
I thought for sure Israel Idonije would be a cheap target of ours last year. We showed zero interest, even when the injuries started up. Then he signed with Detroit. This year, available again and dirt cheap, signs back with Chicago.
You may very well be right.
He will end up in Seattle.
For disclosure purposes, I'm a CPA and have worked on professional athlete's returns in the past. The simple answer is yes. That's the whole point of these states having nonresident income tax returns. You're taxed in the state where the income originates. And that's how the contract of these players work. In the NFL, you get 16 paychecks, each after a game. So when you hear a player getting suspended for a game without pay, he loses that game's paycheck.
Think about it this way. You're a consultant living in Texas. You go to a client's office for a few weeks in Massachusetts. That client pays you for your services rendered. The client will file a MA return and deduct the amount he paid you on his return. He wouldn't be able to deduct the amount if you don't pick up the income on your end. Someone has to pay the tax on it.

Allen signing with Seahawks baring unforseen circumstances. Per Ed "legit' Werder.
ESPN's Ed Werder reports free agent Jared Allen is expected to sign with the Seahawks, "barring unforeseen issues."
Per Werder, Allen could sign as early as Thursday afternoon. The deal comes at the end of Allen's second trip to Seattle. Allen was originally seeking DeMarcus Ware money ($10 million per year), but won't come anywhere close to that in Seattle. Instead, he'll get a shot at a ring. Going on 32, Allen hasn't notched fewer than 11 sacks since 2006.

And @Edwerderespn reports Jared Allen has reached agreement with Seahawks.
I don't doubt you're right... I took a tax law class 10 years ago and intentionally forgot everything when it was over.
Are you saying the client resides in Massachusetts? That makes a little more sense, since he would file a state tax return and would claim your payment as a deduction on his return. But in this scenario, let's just use Dallas as an example... The employer is the team, situated in the player's state of residence. The Cowboys don't have to file a state tax return, so there's no deduction that they claim of the player's salary with the state... The team would only file a federal return.
Are you saying the Cowboys have to file state income tax returns in the other states where the team plays? Do they have to claim TV revenue, etc. for games when they play in New York? That just seems ridiculous to me.
If you don't mind my asking, what state do you live/work in? I'll go read your link though.
The rich get richer.
Chalk up another superbowl win for them. I bet you guys would have flipped out if we hired Pete back in the day.
"It's the smart move, Tessio was always smarter"
Will be intrigued to see the deal he got.
This just had to happen as many suspected... If he wasn't going to get all the coin he expected then
he was going to the best team with a chance to get a ring. That ain't Dallas anytime soon.
