View Full Version : Kavar should sue postons for $4.4 million

Please stop posting Lavar Arrington news in the Dolphins forum.

At the end of the day on the Arrington deal, we believe that the former Redskins star should ask his agents, Carl and Kevin Poston, to pay him $4.4 million. If they refuse, he should sue them for it.
Why? Because the Postons allowed Arrington to give up $4.4 million in earned bonus money in order to hit the open market in early March instead of July, when the Redskins would have cut him in order to avoid paying him a $6.5 million roster bonus.
In the end, however, Arrington got roughly the same deal in late April that he would have gotten in July. Or August. Or September.
Put simply, the Postons should have known what the market would bear for Arrington, and they should have advised him accordingly. Instead, they undoubtedly pumped his head up with ideas of how great he is and how much money he'd made, and we hear that they're now telling him that he'll make a lot of the lost jack back in endorsements.
But will he? This guy isn't Lawrence Taylor, and L.T. wasn't exactly a marketing superstar during his career.
Speaking of L.T., we initially wondered whether Arrington will pull a Jerry Rice and try to finagle Taylor's No. 56, the number that Arrington wore in D.C. According to the Giants' official site, however, it appears that LaVar will wear 55 (http://www.giants.com/team/giants_roster.html).
He should have asked to wear No. 44, as a constant reminder to himself -- and his agents -- of the money that never should have gotten away.
