    Frazier says Adrian Peterson's contract situation is being discussed. That was always the plan once Greenway's deal was done.

    THANK GOD!
    THat's what I like to hear. Get that man SIGNED! Letting him go would be the worst possible thing that could happen.

    Oh, wait, what? You mean they actually sorta seem like they know what they're doing? Shocking.
    Could have fooled me.

    Sure seems like there are alot of "Farewell" fans who don't like the CAP situation we are in.:whistle:
    I don't think it's as bad as some would think. Yeah, we were right at the cap, but that's not taking into account Greenway and AP's contracts. Get those changed up, and that's potentially 5+ mil freed up this year. Cutting Ryan Cook and Farwell also frees up a bunch. So again, what has our cap situation cost us? Nothing really. I don't think we were really considering any big-name FA's, we didn't get Weddle, but I don't think Cap space was the issue. Just didn't want to pay him that much.
    In the end, this is a good thing.

    I wonder how much Guaranteed he's going to get... As many have voiced, now they need to get Peterson done and not risk upsetting the "Face of the Franchise" by tagging him at the end of the season

    MM thanks for the much desired info ... I think that's adequate value for a LB that should have already made a pro bowl or two.

    You are very welcome sir! We paid more than I thought we would. But that being said, we still just cut about 3-5 million off the cap for the year with this extension, and the Camarillo paycut. And most importantly, we just gave Lance Briggs a lot of leverage to get out of the NFC North!

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.
