    Re: Ray Lewis wants a 50 million dollar signing bonus

    This is just an aging player who still has top level talent for a couple of more years trying to get as much as he can ... I cannot really blame him honestly ... He will get a new contract in a year I would bet, but 50 million is not likely and I am sure he does not really expect that much.
    Ed Reed on the other hand should be holding out and definitely deserves a significant resturcturing. He has been solid for a couple of years now and really helps make this defense click.

    Re: Ray Lewis wants a 50 million dollar signing bonus

    I believe bonuses affect the cap like normal salaries. The bonus payment is usually divided evenly among each year in the contract, however should the player be released then the entire bonus must be payed, since it is guranteed. This can cause a serious problem for a cash strapped team if it has to pay the entirity of the remaining bonus in one year.

    I know if you release a player after June 1st the bonus is applied to next years cap number not this years.

    When we cut Moss we had about 7-8 million of his remaining bonus count towards this year, which essentially was about the same as his salary would have been, therefore our cap number didn't change a whole lot this year based on his release.

    Re: Ray Lewis wants a 50 million dollar signing bonus

    With 50 million does he want to play D all by himself or what?

    That would handicap the Ravens so much on the cap that could afford only scrap heap players to play with him. Me personally I would take less to be able to play with better talent and win more Championships.

    This is getting very old. Players that have a great year and expect more money. Ed Reed, Walker, the list goes on.

    So here is an idea. You can have your raise, but if you get hurt, or if you do not live up to our expectations you pay us money back.

    TO you can't get us to the superbowl and win it? Then give me 14 million dollars back, that is what you were hired to do.

    I would kill to see a GM with balls of steel enough to make contracts like that. I mean their sole reason for wanting increases is what they feel they produce. So their pay should be based solely on production.

    Give a player options, a fixed contract, or a production contract with penalties. I know there are stipulations for BONUSES in some contracts and that is a step. But there should be penalties in those contracts as well.

    Then again that would make the game all about money and individual effort.............................oh wait.......
