View Full Version : What's the delay in getting Herm under contract?

As of Friday morning, Carl had settled the compensation issue with the Jets and was free to negotiate with Edwards. Here it is Sunday and the two long-time buddies still haven't sealed the deal. What's the problem?

I'm guessing Carl is trying to negotiate Gunther into the equation, and Herm's resisting.

Or maybe it's just a money issue.

i believe they agreed to a contract already and will announce it tomorrow.


4 years/12 million

Hmmmm, I thought I had heard 5 years, $20 mil.

But 4 years would make sense since Carl has 4 years to go on his extended contract.

I don't doubt it. Just hadn't seen anything yet on the official site.

i think it ended up being less (4yrs /12mill) ... but with several bonuses that can increase the value ... and with an option for a 5th year.


base = 4 years/12 million
with options/bonuses = 5 yrs/20 million


don't know what the exact options are

Carl is known for his hassle free negotiating tactics!

I don't think it took that long at all to agree to a contract. I think they spent some time together to go over the current coaching staff and to look at guys around the league to put together a plan of who they want. I'm guessing they may have already started contacting some of them.

They are just waiting for Monday and the work week to start to officially anounce it. There will be apress conference in KC Monday.

CP is going to wait till their isn't a game on so the sports guys can talk about the Chiefs more.

And Jack Harry can tell how screwed we are.

Hey guys relax. Tomorrow I will sign off on this deal and Herm will be the coach. My son had a basketball game this weekend, so we had to delay the signing.

They got hung up in the money aspect....CP used the F word and Herm stormed out.

I heard it on 810.
