    Nope, he is on the last year of his rookie contract. A place MM was last year when we should have resigned him. But our ownership knew they had the opportunity to pocket a lot of money with no salary floor, and decided to try the RFA route which backfired

    Yeah, he is in a place where MM was last year. His team is re-signing him rather than looking at it as a way to pocket a load of money.

    Which is why I said "re-signing" and not "re-signed". See the difference? Re-signing means they are currently doing so, which they are.

    Sorry, I was just pointing out the fact that the Bolts have signed a guy to (what seems to me as a big contract) that plays the same position as the subject in this thread who is rumored as signing a big contract for another team, might be relevant to the discussion

    my bad

    :lol:

    DB67,
    You should has said "extending" of "re-doing" instead of "re-signing".

    That way, some would understand better. :lol:

    You all should have read the title then saw who created the thread and that's it. I'm guessing the first post goes something like "blah blah blah the Jets signed someone long term blah blah blah Marcus McNeill blah blah blah Vincent Jackson. How close am I? :icon_tease:

    Do you really believe that the Owners are going to lower the cap? I don't. The Players certianly won't.

    As far as the Chargers are concerned, Dean Spanos calls the shots and I'm sure he doesn't care what the Jet's or any other team does with their salary.

    thus the forseeable lockout/strike. Both players union and owners will fight tooth and nail to organize what players get in future contracts.

    but the owners have the luxury of the direct t.v. money. Where the players will make zip next year. But I think this point is in the courts now. So that could prove interesting.

    Why should I care about the Jets re-signing him? This doesn't impact the Chargers in any way.

    Also the Jets are playing in a new stadium and are desperate to sell out their PSLs (remember they're battling the Giants for attention in NY and are losing as of now), that's their motivation. Last few years they've been desperately adding big name guys (Favre, LT, Taylor etc), and last season's playoff run (along with the stadium) only added more fuel to that fire.

    If memory serves, the Chargers need help up front. Claude Wroten never lived up to his potential, but his suspensions were for marijuana, which is pretty lame. Doesn't really possess the ideal size, but some guys are just sh!+azz strong. Because of his time with Jim Haslett, Washington is considered a likely destination. I mean, here's a guy who physically, still has a lot left.

    "Coming out of college, the 6-foot-3, 295-pound defensive tackle out of LSU was touted as one of the best defensive lineman in school history in two seasons with the Tigers. ... Recognized for his quickness off the ball and speed for his size, Wroten was projected as a first-round prospect by several experts for the 2006 NFL draft." http://community.kdvr.com/_Claude-Wroten-Im-ready-to-take-football-seriously/BLOG/2574878/96399.html

    "Wroten has the quick feet, playing speed and closing burst to chase down plays in pursuit, and to close quickly on the quarterback... He has the natural strength to be a force at the point of attack. He can hold his ground against double-team run blocks, split the block and make the play. Overall, Wroten probably will be a good starting defensive tackle ... who can do a good job as the under tackle in a 4-3 defense or as an end in a 3-4 defense. He can chase down running backs on outside runs... Wroten is a very good athlete who consistently gets off the ball very quickly and can shoot into gaps to get backfield penetration. ... When he bends his knees and plays with leverage, he has the natural strength to stack ... and can shed and make plays on inside runs.

    Additionally, he shows the strength to jolt an offensive lineman and drive him backward into the quarterback's lap when he bull rushes aggressively. Wroten is a very good athlete with all the physical tools you could ask for in a defensive tackle. His ...instincts [combined with his quickness] help him burst off the ball right at the snap consistently. His quick feet and agility help him to plant a foot, change directions and burst in the other direction to finish plays..." http://www.stlouisrams.com/article/53670/


    Wroten is saying all the right things now, has worked with kids in his community and wants to play. If the Redskins are dumb enough to let this kid get away, a team like San Diego could have themselves a real find.

    I think the cap will get lowered, but only slightly. It isn't dropping $15-20mil. It may drop $5-6 Mil which can easily be made up with the marginal players who are making $2-3 mil and with the lowering of rookie salaries. The top players will still make very similar money
