    Absolutely. Why do I give a damn about Dak passing for 350 yards against the Jaguars? Then again the Jaguars beat us 34-14.

    Not really
    He gets 63 mil guaranteed over next two years then 57 mil guaranteed in 2023 or he gets to be a FA again
    Not too bad of a deal
    And there is a big difference in a QB getting their first negotiated contract than their 3rd or 4th

    I'm fine if you disagree.

    Not at all saying Stafford did not get a huge and great deal
    But after winning the SB in his 1st year in the system, and still having plenty in tank, I think he could've squeezed more but did not find it necessary.
    I guess Rodgers--who is also in his 3rd or 4th deal--decided to max out.

    No big deal.
    agree to disagree.

    Why can't they restrict QBs salaries to a certain % of the cap?
    Would mean more money for the other players.
    This could be addressed in the next CBA

    Great points
    I don't want the NFL turning into the NBA where the stars call the shots.

    I don't think they'd do that for QBs specifically.

    But they could add a max contract clause, regardless of position. The effect would be the same

    It could but will they? This isn't the same as the rookie contracts when they put limits on those. If they tried to address the QB's, they would have to do all positions.

    Besides that, guys like Belichick hope these teams keep getting top heavy in QB salaries, he was willing to trade the GOAT because he wasn't going to pay him that kind of money.

    Part of running a team and managing the cap is setting your own limits, as Belichick does, and not being regulated by positions by the league.

    That is exactly where these agents have been trying to take this, guaranteed contracts and the owners have been fighting it.

    But that is what CLE had to do in order to get him to qive up his no trade and pick them,

    I would think the rest of the players would be unhappy with the QBs getting such a large slice of the salary cap pie.
    Less for them.

    Yep a professionally run team would have an advantage.
    Unfortunately we don't have that :(

    The problem is Dak was one of the first QBs to crack 40/yr. The front office should have said large guaranteed signing bonus and 35/yr for 6 year contract and the ability to renegotiate after 2 years (now). Basically saying hey show us you are worth it in 2 years and you can have 45/yr.

    But no, Jerry still thinks Dak is a top 5 QB. So now Dak will be one of the first QBs to crack 50-55 for 3 year contract.

    If Dak called our bluff, let him walk. Hind sight shows we wouldn't have been any worse off and had a chance to sign some other big names.

    I just can't stand the front office, the team, and Dak. It's a circus and I only really watch it to see the next wreck.

    Exactly and agents project the salary for their clients for the life of that contract. Dak last season as 2nd highest paid behind only Mahomes, that has changed in 1 season, he is currently 5th now in the 2nd year of his contract and more to come, then next season he will drop even further. Had Dak agent got him a deal for say 35 mill a year last season he would be far down the list and not much of an agent.

    he means the way it was written and the way the league will view it and make them do some type of equality language..i dont fully understand it but they not only trying to bypass soem seldom used languages in contracts abut also had stuff in ti incase he is suspended this season so Hes not even going to pay for his sins, lose zero dollars..its a crazy backloaded deal to protect Watson and what not..its fully guaranteed if hes banned from the nfl the Browns still owe it all to him seriously its crazy why in the worked would Owner do that?

    im sure there's links somewhere i just heard them talk about it on get up and really dont care..

    yes dak no longer even close and after Lamar gets paid and Wilson is reworked he will be around 8..the FO knew this and its why he got his deal..its not longer narrative when hes slid to 5th and will be lower then that.i mean hes ranked by most 6-10 and now paid around 6th id say its on par for top 10 starting qb..
