    Re: Incentives filling Petersonís pockets

    I knew he was getting alot of bonuses, but I didn't know that his base salary would be adjusted.

    This is somewhat concerning if we do get a new cap soon. at $13 mil a season next eyar, and even more if he keeps it up, its gonna cost a LOT to keep him.

    Favre's done after next season anyway, that money will be free.

    Did you read the last part of the post though?

    Essentially, if he keeps up his production, his base salary continues to increase. With the last year of his 6 year contract voidable, that means he can opt out of his contract after year 5, making him an RFA under the current rules.

    Image what we'd have to tender him with to keep him? The top tender will be less than his current salary, so it would have to be 110% of his base salary, which unless they restructure, could be quite a bit.

    Should be a clause in that contract that voids it if he fumbles away a Superbowl birth again

    Psssst.... I think you meant "berth".

    However, I agree. I've always been a fan of the idea that teams should be able to get money back from players who fail to perform. Fine AP $250K per fumble...whether it's lost or not...that'll get him to hold on to it a bit better. He gets 2 freebies all season, after that, "Cash money, Homie"

    LOL, yeah, we hear of players wanting to renegotiate their contracts after a breakout year...I never heard of any player who wanted to renegotiate his contract for less money after having a poor season.

    And there's the story of Raymond Berry who fumbled in his rookie year. Unitas told him if he ever fumbled again, he would never throw the ball to him...he never fumbled again. As far as your recommendation, I think it's a great idea. But I think the NFLPA would have something to say about it.

    Probably, but the NFLPA cares about the players money...not about the sport. That's why they get so little sympathy from fans when they whine about how unfair the owners are.
