$50 million not enough for Clady

    Report: Broncos offer Clady $50 million extension
    Posted by Evan Silva on July 22, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT
    s
    Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that the Denver Broncos have made left tackle Ryan Clady a five-year, $50 million contract offer that would include $28 million guaranteed. As noted by Klis, the $10 million average annual value would put Clady with the NFL’s top-five highest-paid left tackles.

    Clady, who is in the final year of his rookie contract, is owed $3.5 million in 2012.

    Per Klis, however, the offer isn’t viewed as strong enough by Clady’s camp. Agent Pat Dye reportedly wants a deal worth more than that of Cleveland’s Joe Thomas. Thomas signed an eight-year, $92 million deal last August and is the NFL’s richest left tackle.

    Clady isn’t as good as Thomas — and it isn’t even close. So the fact that Clady wants more money than a player he’s inferior to suggests no deal is imminent, barring a surprise increase in the Broncos’ already reasonable offer or decrease in Clady’s unreasonable contract demands.

    I would agree with Clady, he's not worth $50M.

    The agent does what the player wants; if the player wants to be the highest paid tackle in the game even if the agent thinks its a bad idea, the agent follows the strategy of the player. The tactics are the area that the agent has control over - which is one of the reasons I was so annoyed and irritated with VJ's agent back during the holdout

    And on the other hand, I'd bet you there are plenty of agents who in an effort to sign a client will make promises they can't deliver on. Hence VJ's agents acting like a couple butt hurt dipshits in public.

    So because a desperate team over pays for a player, that means we shoudl have? Sorry, I'll take the 4-5 players we were able to get with that same amount of money, as they will help more than a guy who caught only 3-4 catches a week and was 1 DUI away from begin suspended for an entire season

    Sorry I go with the premise that agents gets a cut so I would say a lot of the time he will pressure his player to hold out for more money, I would;)

    Based on what? The issue is Javon Walker...oh *ahhemm*...Vincent Jackson was a Restricted Free Agent and his agents promised him this money 2 years ago and failed to deliver.

    agents in a way are no different than lawyers (many of the former were trained as the latter originally), but even if they weren't, agents are required by LAW to work for the benefit of their charge. They aren't allowed to go off on their own if the player doesn't want to, that's malpractice and the agent can be sued and sued heavily for their crime in addition to possible criminal penalties. I wouldn't be surprised if greed on both sides isn't driving this but in the end the player (like any client to an attorney) is in the driver's seat

    Agree but come on on especially young players are very vulnerable. I not saying all agents are snakes but some of them can be poisonous.

    I think what he is saying is that many times, the agent will convince the player to shoot for the moon and will even talk them into believing they are worth more than they really are, similar to a lawyer in a class action suit who will convince their client they should ask for a certain amount, when the person may have not even though about shooting that high.

    VJ hate is almost as funny as LT love

    VJ got plenty money in the franchise tag and had the Chargers signed him to his at the time current worth (not what Acee was reporting), they'd have saved money then and now. But call other teams who want him stupid, he won and the Chargers were stupid in how they handled it from beginning to face saving end. I don't agree with players half assing it because they are unhappy but unlike the LT situation, it was understandable if not predictable in VJ's case (you KNOW AJ went down on the field later in the week and asked them to turn the lights on so he could stand there where VJ "lost it in the lights" :roflmao: ).

    Yeah, Chargers lost and VJ won

    I believe it is the agent dictating what the player does. It is the agent who looks at all contracts. It is like a real estate agent telling a house seller what the house will sell for.

    As I said before, VJ was 1 more DUI away from a season long suspension and does not deserve the money he got. He was a good receiver, but no where near top 10, which he was actually paid as top 5

    By what criteria did VJ win? He sat out 10 games and played a 6 game season for 600K, when he could have had made several million for that year. That's money he will never get back. Both VJ and his agents lost out. This is not a contest between the Chargers and VJ. The Chargers are trying to build the best team with limited resources. VJ is trying to maximize his value. Just because one team decided VJ was worth a certain contract doesn't mean he was worth it to the Chargers. There are plenty of teams that overpay for players in free agency. I don't know how you can say that any team that doesn't re-sign a free agent "lost." Have you seen the number of high paid free agents that have been busts over the years?

    I believe AJ won!!! We have more players that add up a lot more that VJ. What has VJ really done? Rivers did GREAT even when VJ was out. TUTU V-Brown and Floyd. Rivers will thrive, the Bolts will be much better off WITHOUT VJ. VJ wanted the money and got the money. Now if he can not lose the ball in the lights he might prevent an INT.

    Well, if money was all he wanted rather than a successful team, then we both won since we don't need players like that on the Chargers. The last thing we need is an overpaid prima donna who isn;t worthy of the contract they received

    Exactly. For every Jared Allen, there are 5 Fat Albert and Javon Walkers who don't do squat in the NFL, and I would be willing to be that VJ is more likely to fall in the same category as Haynesworth and Walker, he is the same type of selfish mental patients as those guys

    VJ got bank = he won. AJ didn't want him around or pay him = he won. Just one big happy family.
