TO is ready for another payday, just one year after siging a contract with the Eagles. I guess he wants another dose of that 10 mil signing bonus he got last year.

What a piece of crap. I never want that scumbag playing for the Chiefs. I'd rather the team suck.

Don't put this on TO - it's Rosenhaus. An agent gets paid on signing bonuses. If TO just hired him, he hasn't been paid - and is not likely to be paid for several years. Rosenhaus is the one looking for a payday, not TO.

Id still take him. At least he puts out 100% effort, unlike Moss. He would piss me off come contract time, but id love to see in him Chiefs Red.

Okay.:shake:

Why did TO hire a new agent? Why can't TO just say he's willing to honor his contract? Agents have always been scumbags, but this is hardly all on the agent.

This could set a dangerous precedent. I hope the Eagles tell him to piss up a rope.

He just signed a 7 year contract witha 10 Mil bonus last year! How would you feel if Holmes came looking for a new contract every year?

Owens injured last year and with the way he is somebody's gonna take him out. If I were the Eagles I'd call him into the office and tell him to STFU and play. If he whines I do everything in my power to keep him from getting any incentive bonuses. Seems to me the only post season game the Eagles lost was the one he played in so it's not like he lead them to a championship.

It seems that only Chiefs fans (not all) don't think that big time players should be paid like so.

Carl and Lamar have rubbed off on some of you the wrong way.

what is a big time player worth? whatever he says he is? i guess so, as long as fans think they deserve more and more each year.

Nobody made him sign his contract. Seems he thinks so highly of himself that he doesn't have to stand by his word. The Eagles won one more playoff game then they have the past few years and he didn't play in that game so I don't see how made that much of an impact for them. He had numbers but those numbers didn't do any more for the team then the players who were they before. IMO he can't justify it.

He did exactly what he was paid to do, and he was paid exactly what he agreed to. What did he do to earn a new contract?

Not at all. When Priest Holmes had his breakout year, I felt he deserved a new contract, which he got. I would say the same with other players that are making at or near the league minimum that produce in a manner FAR beyond the comparable dollar value of the contract.

Owens was hired on as a top name receiver. Although his number of receptions last season was his lowest since 1999, and his yards were second lowest in the past 5 seasons, he is still a top receiver. He got his $10 mill, he certainly hasn't done anything over and above that signing bonus.

That said, there's a difference between paying a guy what he's worth, and getting bent over the bargaining table. If you were a GM, I'm guessing you'd be that redheaded chick in KCChiefsMan Vegas picture.

You don't think he was already paid big time?

What do you consider big time?

What did he do last year that should garner him a bigger paycheck than already agreed upon?


I would rather think like Lamar than Daniel Snyder.

Cowboys | K. Johnson Upset With Current Contract? - from www.KFFL.com
Wed, 6 Apr 2005 18:58:04 -0700

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Dallas Cowboys WR Keyshawn Johnson recently missed three days of team workouts. When head coach Bill Parcells called him to find out why he was not there, Johnson indicated he was not happy with his current contract. Johnson's agent, Jerome Stanley, only would confirm his client missed practice and would only say it was for "personal reasons."

Heh heh - I have the clarity to see both sides. If TO has anything to do with this, it's wrong. Having a basic understanding of how agents are compensated, I believe this new contract shit is at the behest of his new agent - not TO. In fact, it will likely only be some money shuffling - convert a bunch of salary to bonus money so the agent can have a payday.

Despite the fact that I hate TO and he's an unbelievable prick he was out-****ing-standing this year.

You think about what he did for the Eagles last year, plus the fact he didn't cash his chips in after just crunching his leg, and then making it back for the superbowl (which NO ONE thought he'd do) and being productive and dangerous on top...

Wow.

So if he has a bad year is he going to give any of that money back to the team?
