Thread: A good idea

  1. #21
    After reviewing the cap hits for 2013 of Diehl, Boley, Webster, Baas, Canty, and Tuck, I think "In Reese we trust" should be changed to "In Reese we can't trust".

    2013 cap hits
    ------------------
    Boley 5,900,000 (age 30)
    Diehl 4,550,000 (age 32)
    Tuck 5,650,000 (age 29)
    Rolle 9,250,000 (age 30)
    Baas 6,725,000 (age 31)
    Webster 9.975,000 (age 30)
    Canty 8,200,000 (age 30)

    Youll find the same thing on every team if you look at good players who are at the end of their contracts. Almost all contracts get backloaded now

    Right, but are the good players all/most over age 30 at the end of the contract?

    I am not sure what you are asking.

    I can see shelling out the big bucks for players in their prime. But to have the contracts that large for players over 30 and declining is not good. It's a young man's game.

    Huh? These are players that WERE signed in their prime. 26 or so years old, get a 5 year contract. Means they will be 30-31 when the backloaded deal maxes out.

    I know that. The point is contract length when signed. Did the contracts really have to be 5 and 6 years in length? Why not 3 or 4 years?

    Because a longer term deal spreads out the cap hit of the signing bonus

    at the end of the day these contracts are not worth the paper they are written on. not gauranteed like MLB or the NBA,,sure some of the money is gauranteed but the majority is not.
