    It’s only $13.5 mill next year if he walks. If not it’s divided up over the 3 years.

    push the media's narrative from the get-go. Even when the narrative was clarified by statements by all concerned parties, you continue to push the media's need for a story. Pardon me for having fun at your expense. Feel free to return the favor sometime, I'm an easy mark.

    I'm not here to stoke media flames, but Jerry Jones is going to be ready come 2020 with a huge offer to Brady.

    Actually I posted my concern well before the deal was announced or before this was a story in the mainstream media. I started this thread. This is a concern I had. I had relief when I heard Brady's been locked up for 3 years and then disappointment when I realized the last 2 years were placeholders.

    And "media" is not one organization on entity. Reiss has a different view from Curran etc. I am not "pushing" anyone's agenda. I'm not on someone's payroll.

    Probably not but he will reset the QB market higher still. That's unhelpful to negotiations from Pats perspective. Helpful from Brady's perspective.

    I remember Gronk kept talking he wanted to see more TEs with bigger/higher contracts since he was already the highest paid TE and it was hard to ask more without other TE salaries moving up.

    Wouldn’t surprise me at all. Just one thing. God will never permit Brady to play in Ohio or New York. Or teams in states who are too close to Ohio

    Well you can’t accuse me now of pushing the media narrative.

    Brady gave an interview today reiterating he wants to play to 45. Why would he do that a week aftwr signing a 1 year contract and saying we’ll what happens in March next year. He’s not that stupid. Clearly he wants to get things moving again and firm up forward years and the sooner the better.

    He could have not mentioned this or kept quiet on it. He very carefully chooses what he’s saying in interview.

    Tom Brady still plans to play to 45

    You can’t tell me Brady is happy with 1 year deal with Pats and then starts yapping immediately about playing a lot longer.

    Contracts won’t matter. We’re winning the super bowl

    Kraft and Belichick generally want to stay within the 12-15% range, as Bob’s been talking about it for years. He recently mentioned how the 16-18% range is just too high. I can’t see how any QB could expect to receive something as high as 21-22%, especially if their name happens to be “Dak Prescott.”

    Yeah but QB market has also moved up as % of salary cap than what it used to be in this pass friendly world.

    I don’t think it matters that the cap has increased, if front offices wish to stay around the 12-15% mark and a player is looking for 21-22% of the available space.

    Taking it a step further, Dak Prescott certainly isn’t relevant to any pass friendly world. In 18 games last season, only 2 were over 300+ yards. In 8/18 contests, or roughly half, he threw for 194 yards or less.
