    Great news!
    Good point. I bought mine just a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully I will be able to wear it while watching meaningful January games in the years to come.

    If these NFL contracts are not guaranteed and the player can be cut and not paid at any time, why on earth would the player sign a long-term deal? It would seem that this works only in the team's best interest and not the player's.

    Re: Carson Palmer signs Extension

    I feel like this is like Troy Aikman a decade ago in Dallas. He likes whats happening here, and wants to stay, get paid reasonably well, and free up cash for the team to sign other players. Carson will restructure this deal in 3 or 4 years, but don't forget there is no cap next year in the NFL and Carson is going to get something like 30 million over the next year between bonuses and salary. So it's not a bad deal for him either.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Where are the haters who kept saying that Carson couldn't wait to get out of Cincy at now?

    Two words: Signing Bonus.

    Without the long term of the contract, a team doesnt pony up the large cash up front - which for cap purposes can be spread over the life of the deal.

    The important number with this ir any deal is how much of it came in the bonus and how much is guarnteed.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
