    I know he's received a huge signing binous, and I can accept that situation as a part of signing a player at #2, but when does he become too become expensive for us? Next year? The year after? If it takes a two years to evaluate a running back, is it conceivable that we'd draft one next year?

    FOOL, the first game was against the super bowl champions and their probably best defensive front in the NFL. Not to mention it was in pittsburgh on a night where the bus was being recognized, and the superbowl rings were being given out. Dont count that game as a HUGE loss, we will see them again in the playoffs, i still think if Daunte gets his **** together, we are top 3 in the NFL.

    Easy everyone... I haven't ever been sold on him. This isn't a one-game thing for me. I've also been reading this forum for years, and am hardly a rookie. I simply don't post becuase I rarely see an intelligent response.

    My question still stands: what are his cap figures for the next couple of years?

    He doesn't have much of a base salary until the final year of his deal in 2010 when he'll either be an established star with a new contract or he'll be on the street. You have to really suck to get cut in the first four years of your rookie contract if you're a high first round pick. It just costs too much.

    Cutting ronnie is not an option. Memory is fuzzy but from what i can remember here it is.

    Salary:
    05' 230,000
    06' 350,000
    07' 984,133
    08' 1,658,266
    09' 2,332,399
    10' 5,000,000

    We paid him something like a 1.6 million dollar roster bonus when he signed and last march gave him a 12.5 million dollar option bonus. Plus other incentives.

    his deal has 19.58 million guaranteed.

    BUT with the cap increase it is honeslty a bargain for a player of his caliber.

    Now i know you as a troll doesn't believe that so i'll put it simple. It costs us less to have him on then team than not to until the last year of his contract. So even if he did suck(which he doesn't) we really don't have an option to cut him till 2010 or 2009 at the earliest...
