    Seahawks | Burleson offer sheet details
    Fri, 24 Mar 2006 15:35:55 -0800

    Updating a previous report, Mike Sando, of the Tacoma News Tribune, reports the Seattle Seahawks' offer sheet to Minnesota Vikings WR Nate Burleson is a seven-year, $49 million deal with $5.25 million guaranteed. The deal also includes two poison pills guaranteeing the entire $49 million if he plays a certain number of games in the state of Minnesota, or if his average-per-year exceeds the average of the highest-paid running back on the team. The pills are in direct retribution for the contract the Vikings used to sign former Seahawks OLG Steve Hutchinson.

    Does anybody else feel like this is yet another player being paid way more money then he deserves?

    Edit: Nevermind, I just saw the other thread.

    I thought the league tried to do away with the "poison pill" after Parcells and the Curtis Martin deal. Incentives like the certain # of games played in MN are ridiculous.

    Does this foolishness set the bar for Deion, money-wise? Isn't Burleson a #2.
