    According to this article, it says "Vikings inginuity pays off" not "Condon's inginuity pays off", but in another article it states it was inserted by the Vikings and his agent, Tom Condon.
    For the Poison Pill to be valid and considered a "Principal Term" in the Offer Sheet/Contract, there is language in the CBA that states that such a request has to come from the player or agent. Therefore Condon at some point had to come out and say it was their idea.

    MHO is that Rob B came up with the Poison Pill and Condon gave him all the info he needed to write it so that it would stick e.g. being the highest payed OLineman on the team from the time he signed the offer sheet until the end of the year.
    I will agree with that, Rob has done a great job over the years.

    Here's an update un Hutch's contract:

    Vikings | Hutchinson counts $13.3M against 2006 cap
    Fri, 24 Mar 2006 13:19:33 -0800

    Mike Sando, of the Tacoma News Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings OG Steve Hutchinson's new contract counts more than $13.3 million against the 2006 salary cap. The deal includes $4.75 million in incentives, a $10 million signing bonus and a $6 million roster bonus. The deal also includes a no-trade clause.
    I didn't remember anything about the no-trade clause. That contract was loaded with goodies.
