    I'm not surprised to see Hutch & McKinnie on the 2006 list with the big signings they had, but I was surprised to see them rank that high.

    I wonder how they rank in 2007?

    Funny.
    Bit of levity here.........

    I was suprised to see Tom Brady's name on that list, especially after the lengthy discussions we had on how much of a team guy he was by giving up all his money to help the team out

    ;D

    Did he give it up or did he defer (backload) it? It would explain the higher salary now

    Most of that must have been in bonuses.

    I think the fact that Bryant McKinnie, who has been inconsistent and never has made the Pro-Bowl, and Steve Hutchinson, a guard, both made more money last year than a QB who has won 3 superbowls for his team speaks volumes...


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    I don't understand why offensive lineman would even make the list to begin with.
    The players that take a beating every down and making the game play decisions should be the ones raking in the cash.
