7 year deals are pretty long... especially for guys who will be in their 30s at the end of those deals. I would sign 3-5 year deals instead.

I respect the high level of integrity that your comment suggests. However, I am obligated to consider the best interest of the organization first, right? In this example, I see that as extending a deal wherever possible to save the franchise millions -which can then be used to attract more talent, and maintain our facility (not to mention please our shareholders =)

Isn't it the Agents who are supposed to represent the personal interests of our players? Some are savvy enough to not make backward deals. Am I really supposed to look away when someone shows their hand?

Please tell me more about your thinking here? Would you recommend a "fair dealing" rule, with a hard 5 year limit?

What does the rest of the board think? Debate is encouraged here!

CB Barry Wilburn did a fine job in our Quarter package, and on special teams. However, I don't think he is quite ready to carry the load of a full time corner. We have restructured his contract in order to allow him more time to earn the big money.

DT Darryl Grant has agreed to a long extension. He is a quality player who is really coming into his prime. We are getting the right price at the right time!

Backup SS Alvin Walton agreed to a restructured contract that could keep him around a bit longer, and save us some cash.

FS Todd Bowles was out with injury most of the season, and didn't get much playing time after that behind Pro-Bowler Vince Newsome. Monte has some ideas about a hybrid safety/linebacker option for Todd, and it looks as though he can be another solid special teams contributer this year as well. So, we went ahead with a contract extension.

LE Steve Hamilton didn't see any action last year, and we hope to not need him again this year either. Still, we came to terms on a restructuring deal, just in case.

Pro-Bowl Center Jeff Bostic is the definition of a team player! At 29 years old he was willing to restructure his contract just a bit, and give back a small percentage to hire a quality backup. It is men like this who make our team rise above.

Well, I suppose I don't know what our current cap situation is. In my opinion, I would save the 7-year deals for players below the age of 27 who are going to be game-changers. Any other players should have a 5 year limit.

Terry Orr joined our team last year as a TE, but won a spot in the roster as a FB. He did well in that role, not only opening holes, but also grabbing a handful of catches (10.2 yard average), one for a TD! Now, he was even willing to take a small pay cut in order to keep things going. Here's to Terry, the bull in our backfield!
