    Does "catch 82" earn MM a new contract

    I really hope so, need to keep these 3 guys together as long as we can, it's a winning formula. I stole the " catch 82 " from a different user here. I love it.

    Would like to see him back, but the Giants will not over-pay for him.

    I hope so. Mario is the perfect compliment to the receiving corps. I hate seeing the Giants lose valuable players after their first contracts are up.

    If Reese can make it happen I'd be more than happy for him.

    As long as he doesn't want some unreasonable contract, he's got my vote. Here's the details on his initial contract:

    I like MM but as you did see...Mario leaves you guessing....It was a great Tyree moment but we didn't keep Tyree either.




    None of this is to say I wouldn't want him but he helped us on one great play and a few ordinary ones in the Super Bowl...which means his manager will drive him out of his market (#3 WR) and try to get him starter money.




    I will be hoping we keep him but accept that he will likely move on.

    Question: why don't we pay them? we can pay them the base salary but offer bonuses that won't count against the salary cap.

    There's always, ways around the salary cap

    Example: 10 mill base 10 mill bonus which i DO believe is guaranteed.

    bah, maybe I'm smoking a pipe dream on this idea.
