    Re: BJ - How fair is it

    the only adjustment i'd say brad's contract should get is maybe some incentives, he signed the contract and we all know he's not complaining about ONLY making 1.2 mil this year.

    Re: BJ - How fair is it

    If the contract he signed designated him as a back up quarterback, then imo that contract was negated when that designation was changed. This isn't a case of the starting QB getting injured and the back up finishing the season such as last year. This is a clear reassignment.
    For that reason alone I think he deserves a pay raise and a new contract.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    NFL contracts do not dictate a position of any kind, let alone that you are a backup.

    Re: BJ - How fair is it

    Just the fact alone that BJ is a starter (upgraded from backup when he signed) says he should get paid as a starter.
    I don't see any chance that a Vikes backup will take over as starter this year, unless he gets injured, so he is the starter.

    Also the fact that he is a great starter, great leader and a classy guy says he should get a raise.

    Okay then I have a question for all of you and that is how much?
    How much more should he be paid.
    I keeping to myself for right now wither or not he should or should not be paid more money but I just want to know how much more money you think he should be getting.
    Also isn’t he already getting over a Million Dollars a year to play?
    I know maybe to some of you that is not a lot of money but to me that is a lot.
    BTW a hint on the my stance if you think by reading this post you know where I stand on the subject then you are wrong it is opposite then the way the post is written
    how much of a raise should brad get? hmm....

    give him a $15 gift certificate to Starbucks or something and call it good. he's in the NFL, loves the game, and gets a chance to play, with his age on the wrong side of 30 and START. what more could he ask for? its not like he hasnt earned his fair share of money during his 16 (or something like that) seasons.

    Brad deserves at least 4 million in guarantees over the next 2 years. Period.
