    20 Million Dollar Player

    Sorry guys but you can't tie up $20 million for a year in one player, I don't care if he is the quarterback. It just hamstrings you when trying to address competitive balance at other positions. I would rather have an 8-10 Million Dollar QB and use the rest of the money to address defensive issues.

    Your kidding, right? Shouldn't this post be in red font?

    Eli did not take a pay cut last year.

    He didn't take a pay cut and his salary this hasn't increased. They transferred $9m of his base salary last year into a signing bonus so it could be prorated over the remaining years of his contract. His cap hit increased this year because of it, not his salary.

    What exactly would you want Eli to do?

    The other 6.5 that makes up the 20 mil is dead money.
    It's confusing. You see the CAP hit and can't understand his paycheck doesn't add up to it.

    and iirc, peyton manning makes like 22 mil a year as well but perhaps the length of his contract is why the numbers are a bit higher. the numbers fall the longer the contract, and seeing as peyton got a 3 yr deal or 4 yr deal iirc, paying him over 20 mil per year is a lot different than where the contract like 7 yrs...

    Again, just to reitterate to some of you. Eli is not making 20 mil. Hes averaging about 16.

    I dont think anyone in the NFL is making 20+mil/year.

    Can everyone please stop with the 20million salary hysteria? It doesnt exist. Nobody has ever signed something along the likes of a 7 year 155mil contract. And until someone does, just stop. please.

    If you're lucky enough to have a franchise QB, then $20M+ per year is fine. It's the most important position by far in the NFL and a franchise QB can keep you in the hunt year-in-and-year out, even when the team as a whole may not be worthy of it.

    That $20M+ per year that Eli gets is piece of mind for the Giants and us fans.

    Agreed, he is not giving back any money, nor should he, nor would any player. And yes, both sides benefited from the restructures.

    OK people....Again....He did not do anyone any favors.

    All he did was agree to switch some salary money ($9MM) to guaranteed bonus money. This allowed the team to spread the cap hit over several years, BUT it also got him ALL that new bonus money up front, instead of waiting for it over the course of the season.
    So it cost the team in up front money, but allowed them to spread it out on the cap books.
    The effect to Eli was that he got $9MM the day he redid the contract. Thats not doing anyone any favors.
    It was a win/win for both parties. Which is fine with me.

    But its misleading to suggest that Eli was doing something benevolent for the team and Giants fans. He did what he is supposed to do, do right by himself and his family.
    well now he has the chance to really do himself and the team a favor.. just depends on if he feels he can win without one or both of those WRs
