    RT @adbrandt: Breaking: Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a six-year, $100 million contract.

    The guaranteed money on Michael Vick's brand-spanking-new, 6-year, $100 million contract is about $40 million.

    ...wow. I don't see this one panning out for them at all.

    Too many years for a guy who relies so much on athleticism. 3-4 probably would of been better.

    Re: OT: Schefter: Mike Vick just got 6 years, $100 million, $40 million guaranteed

    For those who followed his debt troubles, Vick still has major creditors and will end up pocketing less than a third of this money. I'm one who likes redemption stories and I'm fine with this new deal.

    I think with the new rookie salaries the salaries of veterans and elite players are going to SPIKE. This is one reason I think it was a bargain the Patriots got Mankins for 8M a year, which is high under the old system but will be not too bad relatively speaking when we see more contracts in the future.

    Not sure how to explain the new dynamics, but if rookies are making substantially less than they used to, the money should start flowing to other guys. Larry Fitzgerald's new deal is basically where all the contracts are headed with all this extra money freed up not going to rookies.

    $100 million?! That is preposterous! Plus, he won't last six years. Scumbag.

    He should totally mail it in for the next two years, refuse to play in Andy Reid's schemes and then come to the Patriots when he gets cut... Then we'll change our entire offense to fit his skill set...

    You sound like we should feel sorry for Vick only netting $13,000,000 because he owes money to his creditors. You mean the fact that he spent 27,000,000 he didn't have and now must pay it back is a reason to feel sorry for him?

    Maybe Vick should have let the Eagles use some of that money for paying some quality offensive linemen ...

    How long before Vince Young knifes him like he did to McNabb & Kolb and takes the starting role?

    Have to see the real numbers before knowing for sure, but it seems as if Vick should be very happy with the deal.

    You sound like you honestly hate the man and no matter what happens will never forgive him or let it go. He paid his punishment and has started over from scratch, why continue the animosity. What Mike Vick did was indefensible, but in my opinion what he did was not worse than Big Ben raping multiple women and getting away with it.

    PS I have a dog but I'm also aware that he paid more time in jail than some people have been in prison for killing human beings.

    Re: OT: Schefter: Mike Vick just got 6 years, $100 million, $40 million guaranteed

    The top ten average right now is $15M per. I'll bet when the details come out the backend of the deal will be all salary... He was getting almost half that guaranteed money on the tag this year alone. Manning in comparison got 5/$90 but $48 of it is guaranteed and $69M is implicitly guaranteed since he will see that in the first 3. Brady's extension was 4/$72 and he got $48.5M guaranteed and has rolling guarantees on most of the rest of it...

    Guess we'll have to wait and see then for the details. If it's not guarenteed like you're saying then it's not a bad deal.
