Just as I predicted earlier. Belichick was smart enough to exploit this loophole before the rule got changed.

im not too familiar with nfl contracts but isn't restructuring just pushing that money back to later years? Meaning that it's not really a paycut, the team is just paying him less for the current year to be within the cap. Someone correct me if im wrong

 

 

Also, it seems weird for demarco to even ask him to take a cut.

 

Lowkey feel bad for the dudes in CFB right now that are RBs since they have pretty short careers in general and won't be making as much as others over the course of the career

Well, considering that NFL contracts are not generally fully guaranteed, they could be deferring the money until a date that will never come.

Red lantern is right. Basically, if the contract is non-guaranteed (or at least the last few years are), and you push your money back, and you get cut in a year or two, then you never get the money. And, as onerous as Romo's contract is, it is a possibility.

 

Also, pushing money back into later years hurts in another sense, even if it isn't a paycut. Lets say I offered you 100$ now, or $100 in 3 years. You would obviously take 100 now. Why wait 3 years for the same amount of money. I could even offer you 95$ now or $100 in 3 years, you'd probably still take the $95. Therefore $100 now is 'worth more' than $100 in 3 years. (also because you could invest that money, gain interest on it, etc, whereby it would be worth much more than $100 in 3 years)

It's unbelievable that the Browns could actually make uniforms even shittier than the ones they currently wear… but hey it's Cleveland!

It's also now apparently the time to applaud the scores of the Wonderlic (aka: intelligence test gone full retard) candidates. I guess for Winston it must be, as he apparently only missed half of them (almost). Has anyone ever taken it? Do you realize how dumb you'd have to be to miss more than a handful? I'm being generous here.

He beat Ben Roethlisberger on the test so that just goes to show you don't need to be a genius to win a super bowl. You just can't be on Vince Young level intelligence.

I'm just saying it's amazing what level of mental capability one is dealing with… and these are supposed to be the "smarter" ones.

I am not even sure what the wonderlic is supposed to test other than basic mental capacity

post #2952 of 5305
I believe that the Wonderlic is supposed to test the ability to process information under severe time constraints. It is not a difficult test; a while ago, I took a sample Wonderlic under realistic test conditions and scored a 50/50. I don't have NFL-level physical talent, however.

Offensive linemen are the highest scoring players, on average. Yes, even higher than quarterbacks. That makes sense when you think of their responsibilities: They have to memorize offensive plays and blocking schemes, play together as a unit, and diagnose and respond to defensive looks quickly.

Yes, offensive lineman are known for their brains. Centers usually the smartest, as they call out assignments, point out potential rushers, etc.
