    Deal gets done over the weekend and he's there Monday.

    And for Bonus Points:

    Marcus & AJ work out a deal and he's in camp next week also.

    I hope you are right. And if you are, I will just ask, why the hell couldn't it have gotten done a month ago

    I think it didn't happen a month ago becuase he and VJ were lumped together - both decided they were going to sit out so no contract for either player. Now that Gates has his extension, and soon Matthews, it shows that the Chargers will reward their players with contracts.

    Jackson - see ya - good player but bad citizen.

    But I bet MM is really watching whats going on and by now wondering "did I really turn down 3 Mil this year?

    Cooler heads will prevail and the contract will get done.

    But that's just my opinion - what the hell do I know.

    Ryan before monday next.

    Big Mc before the 3rd preseason game.

    From what I am reading I hope VJ gets traded soon so we and esp the incumbent receivers can move on. Go get that starting spot Legs, I am so close to buying your jersey for my trip to London to cheer on the 49ers against the Donks.

    What does VJ have to do with MM. If the team wants to re-sign one and not the other, they can. They are not "lumped together".

    The issue is, why do they wait so long to get these things done. They know they were going to re-sign Gates, and every report said it was smooth as both sides agreed on nearly everything, so why not start working on these things in March? Why wait till the end of July to start working on these things?

    I agree. But I am afraid he won't be traded unless a team offers something ridiculous. AJ doesn't like to be pushed into a corner, and if he traded VJ than it will look like VJ forced his hand, something AJ just can't deal with.

    For the best of the team, VJ needs to be traded so the distraction is gone and everyone can move on

    You have to wonder if there is something about MM that AJ don't like. I'm sure he had a pretty good inkling that the CBA was not gonna get done and he would be in the position he is now. So why not lock up MM last year? If he can sign Gates before his current contract was up then he could have for MM also. Just wondering if there is something about MM that AJ doesn't like.:icon_shrug:

    Mathews sandwiched

    By Kevin Acee , UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER
    Friday, July 30, 2010 at 1:26 p.m.

    The pick before Ryan Mathews signed Thursday night, the pick after him on Friday morning.

    That provided a spark to the Chargers, who had been waiting to see the numbers from deals around Mathews, who they selected 12th. The sides are talking, and a deal could come as soon as Friday afternoon.

    "Now that the guys have signed around Ryan, I think our guys think this can be done pretty fast," Norv Turner said after the Chargers finished their first full-squad practice.

    The Patriots want to sign Brady, and he wants to sign with the Patriots. It ain't done.

    You do realize that NFL contracts are for big *** money, and are complicated things, right? You piss, moan, and complain in nearly every post that things aren't getting done quickly enough for your liking. Here's a thought: let the professionals deal with these things and stop worrying about it.

    You're right, the chicken is only full of steroids and antibiotics, no problems there.

    I didn't say they were hard on the eyes, just don't care much for silicone.
