    So... before the No Fun League smacks down the new game the Vikings and Seahags invented... what RFA's are out there that you want, and what poison pill should we ram though before it's too late?

    Me:

    Josh Brown (Seattle, K) - "Contract shall be guaranteed in full if the player participates in more than three games this year in a state that serves as headquarters for the most evil rich white man in the world; Bill Gates."

    Kevin Curtis (St. Louis, WR) - "Contract shall be guaranteed in full if the player fails to catch a one pass this year from a quarterback with three Super Bowl rings."

    Cato June (Indy, LB) - "Contract shall be guaranteed in full if the player plays in a defensive scheme that features, as a percentage, more Cover 2 alignments than 3-4 alignments in the 2006 season."

    ;)

    Good one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Vikings and Hawks sure are having a spat. I say we stick it to the Colts with some creative contracts.

    Those contracts are non-CBA and if challenged would be gone!!

    We should sign the kicker. He is pretty good.

    "the most evil rich white man in the world; Bill Gates"

    The only thing true about this statement...is that he is evil.

    OK, I guess he is white also.

    Hutchinson's contract was challenged and upheld, how can they not uphold Burleson's?

    No ...I thought the Hawks saw which way the wind was blowing, and chose not to get it in writing ...YET.

    Now they are ready, IMO With the Burleson corrallary and CBA collapse, facing the League. Besides haven't you ever heard of reversal decisions?

    Yup, the Special Master ruled that the Hawks would have to guarantee the entire contract since at the time of the signing, Jones had a higher salary. http://www.nfl.com/teams/story/SEA/9324117

    Sure, and I'm not sure there's any other way around it, as you pointed out, but I'm no lawyer. :)

    Did someone from this board send Mike Florio an email about Josh Brown?

    Why wouldn't we do this?? I mean poison pill notwithstanding - an offer for Josh Brown seems to make sense to me. What have we got to lose here?
