    What a load of bullcrap, why would a player take less money and have to move his life to another city. It generally works the other way around where a player will take less money to stay with his current team. The only way this would make any sense is if we offered him more potential money but the Rams offered him more guaranteed.

    Does any player care about championships more than money? If that was true, players would get their peers to take discount salaries and stack a team up nicely. That's why it goes in one ear and out the other when players say all I care about is winning the Super Bowl. The best we see is the odd player restructuring to give the team a few more options. I think it is especially true for veterans that have already made many millions, why don't they play on a good team for 2M instead of holding out for 8M.
    It's time to be successful Coach Philbin. Have you decided what you should master yet? It's time to step up Mr. Tannehill, you're starting year three too.

    I'm glad he's gone too. He got
    Beat a few times this year and looked average. Sure he's injured but he's always injured. And how do u expect to get paid when we don't know if you will hold up for an entire season.

    Either way, Long is gone. I'm fairly positive we were outbid by the Rams. Long had too much back and forth to simply drive up the price.
    Volin is awful.

    Jake was mad because he thought that the fins was going to give him a blank check, he has been injured he cann't deny that so let him go on to ST.Louis and show them how healthy he really.

    Probably some truth to that. He did opt out of the last year of his contract even before Philbin was hired.
