Wow.

$27M for the 24th rated passer and a 1.13-to-1 TD/INT ratio.

I'm betting Philip Rivers is looking at that and smiling.

With salaries like that, making the Pioli the highest paid GM is so worth it. His salary is chump change comparatively, and he has so much more impact long-term than almost all of those players.

Phillip Rivers and Eli Manning are going to enjoy this offseason, this much is clear.

Rivers deserves it, IMO.

Manning, not so much.

I loved the Inside the NFL segment a few weeks ago when they asked Simms about this potential contract, and he said, "well, he'll get it, but he's maybe the 15th best QB in the league."

Eli's basically getting paid because he had a 6 game run over his 4 year career, and his defense shut down the most potent offense in the league, getting him a ring.

What is the Raiders Cap situation next year?

BTW, the two highest paid Chiefs this year: Branden Albert and Glenn Dorsey.

However, the highest cap values was Patrick Surtain.

Really, this list is just all who signed a new contract this year and got the bonus money kicked in.

It will be an entirely new list next year. Still, though. Chris fucking Snee :shake:

Not sure, but their total payroll in 2008 was most in the NFL: $152,389,371. :eek:

Projected to be $4M under the cap, as of now.

So with the NFL contract inflations (due in large part to Al Davis), that is like $500,000 above cap in 2003, right?

I wish we would have done something like this with Dorsey and Albert since we did not use the rest of our cap money. That would make it easier to sign kids next year and on, as well as cut one had they been a typical hiefs 1st round pick.

Albert had a signing bonus of $2,500,000 and other bonuses of $6,683,750 for a total salary of $9,478,750 and cap value of $4,798,750.

Dorsey had a bonus of $6,638,250 for a total salary of $6,933,250 and a cap value of $2,395,000.

A QB would have to go to 5 Pro-Bowls to be of comparable worth to Chris Snee.

Unless that QB is the son-in-law of his team's head coach.

Not to change the subject... But, other than a 5 year deal as the highest paid GM in the league, does anybody know any details of his contract?

And to think, during Ben's rookie season I asked his grandma if he had a suite at the stadium. She said "Just a small one. He doesn't have much money".
