If that's true, he's delusional about his abilities. You can't sit for years and expect to come in as a starter, particularly when his last years weren't all that great as it was.

That was what was publicly stated in 2018-2019.  I know he refused the Broncos on that basis. But I just see now he stated last month that he'd be willing to be a backup.  In that case, I hope he sticks if nothing but to put an end to a lot of dumb narratives about his actual football ability.

In the years since he's been out of the league, it feels like some want to make him out to be peak Michael Vick while others act like he was Seneca Wallace

As we go through the offseason where salaries and new contracts come up, the disparity in NFL salaries compared to other sports never ceases to amaze me.  I know roster size has a big part of it, but its still so crazy.

Just watched an episode of the IAMATHLETE podcast with Aaron Donald.  One of the hosts was Lesean McCoy.  Shady was a STUD at his peak.  2 time first team All Pro.  7 Pro Bowl seasons.  All Decade team for the 2010s.  Rushing yards leader, incredible 2 way RB.  He made $60MM in a 12 year NFL career.

Looking at the Bucks.  George Hill has never made an All Star game.  Steady but unspectacular guard, but his best seasons he wasn't even the best guard on his team, much less one of the tops in even his division.  But through 12 seasons he made just over $90MM...

Brook Lopez.  Another good but not great player.  Tons of empty stats on bad teams.  1 ASG but nobody is talking about him with the tops at his position...through 12 seasons he made double McCoy's career earnings.

Mommas don't let your kids be football players, especially not RBs.

That doesn’t even account for the lack of guarantees for NFL. George Hill could have torn his ACL and gotten all his contract. Not the same for McCoy.

Is Aaron Donald really this dumb? He had no idea what he was talking about - to the point where he said it isn’t about money and it is about money in the same sentence.

I took it as "its not about money" in the sense that he doesn't need it.  He's made $100MM so he's good.  But at the same time, its about money from the respect/value angle.  Aaron Rodgers doesn't need money but he has an infatuation with being paid the highest or amongst the very top.

I mean, if you're willing to retire if not for a deal you think you deserve, its sort of beyond money at that point in terms of the actual impact on your life.  But the money represents respect or stature.

He's done everything there is to do.  He has a ring, he has multiple DPOY, he's a surefire HOFer.

I pretty much agree with your comments, but the way respect is measured in the League is thru $$$$. That makes it about Money.

Yeah, it does sound crazy, but in pro sports, money often IS respect. I am the best, therefore I am the highest paid.

Only "right now"? This looked like a terrible decision from the start, beginning with alienating Mayfield

Mayfield is nothing special. Average QB. I don't fault the Browns for wanting to upgrade over him. However, doing so with Watson was a terrible decision.

The Panthers' QB situation has been a dumpster fire ever since Cam's injuries in 2018, but I was very glad they didn't get Watson.

They supposedly are interested in Mayfield, but only if the Browns pay most of his salary. I'm meh about it, though if healthy he's gotta be better than Darnold.

Why does he even answer anything related to either incident.

"I'm not going to talk about anything like that, I'm here to talk about our team, and specifically defense."

What a dope.

This year will be the 1st time I have ever rooted for a guy to get injured - hopefully career ending. Screw Browns fans!

I don’t know what the percentage is, but I would imagine it is pretty high.
