In Topic: Adrian Peterson Status Updates - Absolutely No Debates about Child Rea

Today, 03:06 PM

 

 

I don't understand why people are getting so upset over him wanting guaranteed money. There are tons of athletes that tweet and express themselves as wanting a different contract. He's accepted that the Vikings aren't trading him, so if he's going to play for a team that he feels did a disservice to him last season, he wants to make sure he's not on a 1-year contract. You might not agree with how he disciplined his child, but that ship sailed long ago.

Well he shouldn't because all 32 teams would have done the same thing.  Lets not forget that 32 teams treated La'el Collins like he had the plague while he was being investigated for murder. 

 

 

I highly doubt all 32 teams would have done the same thing. I know the Cowboys wouldn't have, one of the reasons why he was so enamored with playing there.

 

 

The Cowboys let DeMarco Murray walk after a career year.

So, he wants guaranteed money.  He already HAS his guaranteed money!  The rest is incentives.

 

The reason he got a contract that pays so much, is for production on the field, going forward.  Just do it and the money is yours.  How tough is that to accept?

 

His $86,000,000 contract is higher than the next two highest combined.  If he holds up his end, they will hold up theirs.

All he has to do is play like Adrian Peterson and he gets paid.  Isn't that why he got the contract he did? 

 

Does Monte Ball deserve AP money?  Not unless he plays as well as AP (which ain't gonna happen).

 

That's how contracts work -- both sides get value out of them.


In Topic: Agholor vs Perriman in the late first...who do you like?

I might be proven wrong, but I will not take Perriman.  I look at it this way...  The measurables are off the chart, yet he fell in the draft.  If he were rock-solid doing what a WR gets paid to do, run good routes & catch the ball, he would have gone top-ten.  I don't need a WR who can't catch any more than I need a QB that can't throw.

I was looking at the Browns depth chart on ESPN, and I gotta say...  I kinda like it  :D
