  1. 2000 Brady entered the NFL on a minimum contract. He earned $193,000 as a rookie and just $298,000 in a 2001 season that culminated in a Super Bowl win. 2002 Months prior to the 2002 season, Brady agreed to a four-year contract extension worth roughly $30 million, including a $10 million signing bonus. Ryan became the second top draft choice to sign when he accepted a six-year, $72 million contract that included $34.75 million in guarantees. Brady was paid peanuts for a few years

  3. Blank needs to write this response down in a notepad, carry it with him everywhere, and read it verbatim every time he's asked a question regarding a player. I've never seen an owner sabotage his own franchise in contract negotiations so often.

  6. The trade is about 80 points in our favor, but whatever, it could happen. The picks all have players mocked by CBS within 10 spots of our pick so they are not unreasonable. Falcons Trade #16 and #140 to Dolphins Miami Trades #39, #56 and #70 to Falcons • #39: Falcons select Neville Gallimore DT Oklahoma €. Why: athletic freak who is absolutely plug and play next to Grady. Those two will be a problem • #47: Falcons select Winfield Jr CB Minnesota €. Why: Playmaker with pedigree who has performed well every year he was healthy. Playmaker

  7. Freeman wasn't atrocious last year. The problem, again, is return on investment. Was Freeman good enough to warrant a $6.5MM salary and $9.5MM in 2020? No. But was Freeman good enough to be on the roster? Yes. That's where I land. He had moments. He was a solid enough receiving back. He was solid enough in blocking. But he's not a borderline $10MM cap hit player.

  8. Kraft has been paying him under the table forever. I bet he has made alot more than that. I guarantee you, Brady has pocketed four times that.

  9. Dude bullied the organization into that contract the week of the biggest game the team has ever been in and then denied that block was his responsibility. Shameful.

  11. It's ******* dumb. Feels like they just wanted to show the Brown and Carpenter signings weren't a waste. Newsflash: they were. This is one of my biggest critiques of the current regime. Play the best guy. I'm not sure if it's Koetter or Quinn - seeing as we did play guys on defense that played better as the year went on - but whatever it is, it needs to stop.

  12. I know the James Stone jokes are coming, but you aren't wrong this time R. They do have the talent. LT: Jake LG: C: Mack RG: Lindstrom RT: McGary That's better than most teams. Gono has showed several times he can play. Why they won't play him is a travesty.

  14. Any of you guys that wanted to try your hand at one of these mock-draft simulators - I highly recommend The Draft Network(TDN). - there's is the easiest to navigate and quick - also allows you to pull the scouting reports as well when deciding between players - like any simulator or website, you could always argue a little w/ the rankings but they are somewhat reasonable - what I notice in TDN's simulations is the running backs drop maybe a little further than in real life. Here is link if you want to try your own hand at one of these: https://thedraftnetwork.com/mock-draft-machine

  15. Literally, sign Graham Glasgow and be done with it if you want to fix LG. He's not going to break the bank. He'd be more cost effective than Carpenter and Brown were, would complete the OL, and would give you G/C versatility. It's not rocket science.

  21. Ryan was the 2nd ranked QB in 2017 behind only Brady. He was also great year 1 with Mularkey (2008) & Year 1 with Dirk (2012)

  25. someone please take New Orleans Saint's OG Andrus Peat's (6'7" former OT) pro-bowl away from him - clearly he doesn't deserve it due to his height. Most of the best OGs in the business are 6'4" to 6'5". Unzip your pants and count the 3 inches - it doesn't amount to much.

  27. Now he's acting like a businessman? Where was this when the team was negotiating (I use the term loosely) contracts for Matt, Julio, and Grady (or Freeman's prior contract)? Don't get me wrong, I want them all here. But the whole "falcon for life" crap only made the job of his front office staff more difficult. You don't walk into a contract negotiation yelling "you win"! Quite frankly, this 180 degree turn sends an odd message to players. If I say "falcon for life" we'll bust the bank for you, but if I don't say that or I say "love has nothing to do with it" you might want to call a real

  30. Wonder how it makes players feel in Free Agency knowing that the owner has his preferences for “Falcons For Life” so you know you’re not going to get paid what you think you deserve. just say no comment Blank. Pretty sure this has to cause some angst in the locker room at some point.

  32. While I certainly hope this kid is not blowing an incredible opportunity, this kind of reporting is so shady to me. Let him prepare (or not) the way he wants... see no need to kneecap him publicly before he has to perform. Unless someone is trying to tank his draft stock.

  33. Go look up Matt Stanford. 11 seasons 211 million. Next year it will be $219 million. I guess people forget the time when rookie contracts were getting out of control. Like how Kellen Winslow became the highest paid TE in NFL history before he ever played a snap. Ryan, Stafford, and Bradford were the last QBs to benefit from this and came in with monster rookie deals. Cant fault them for being smart and hiring great agents.

  34. Another thing you have to take into account is the market for QBs has drastically gone up. Would it be fair to compare Bart Starr's earnings to Matt Ryan? No. Tom Brady entered the league 8 years before Matt Ryan when QBs made much less. You think a top QB drafted 8 years after Matt Ryan wont earn more money than him by the end? Of course he will. By then QB's will be getting 50 million a year. To top it off Tom Brady gave the Patriots discounts. Since they have been caught cheating every way possible could it be possible Brady was given more than what his earnings say? Absolutely.

  40. Very low statistically. When you look at the number of players (let’s say 275 drafted), the odds are 1:275 we take just one of them. Then multiply that x 2 for the odds we take both. So odds are about 1:550, So don’t hold your breath.

  41. This thread doesn’t matter, because according to the people around here the game has passed by guys like Brady and Ryan alike. We need a ‘scrambling’ QB

  43. My point exactly. It just doesn't seem like a good business model. I know the NFL has no problem pulling in cash, but how long will this last? On one hand, its the market is set, if you are a starting QB, you have to get higher than what the last starter got a year or two ago. It really doesn't take into account "Resume" other than starting NFL QB. A young guy like Mahomes wins the MVP award, wins a super bowl title and has thrown for 5000+ yards all within his first 3 years. Sounds like he is putting up numbers and getting end results. Should be in line to be the highest paid QB when

  45. Ryan wasn’t the Ryan we’ve come to expect, which is saying something because he only threw for under 300 yards 3 times in games he finished. If he played in place of Schaub for the 5 quarters he missed and put up the same stats as Schaub, here is Ryan’s stat line: 67% completions 5,049 Yards Passing 29 TD’s 14 INT’s

  46. This is the guy I’ve liked the most out of any DB I’ve seen. This guy can play single high in the box ball hawk returner thee most complete. If we are talking a bolter at 16 Winfield Jnrs the guy.They did it with Neal @ 17 a few years back it could be the right time to look for Allen/Neal replacement that offers a whole lot more.
