Exactly....6 mill for McCown is a joke
McCown's contract is so unbelievably inconsequential it shouldn't even be brought up in conversation honestly.
this is really shaping up to be an exciting season...I mean we have the potential to be as bad as we've been since the Kotite years
You're wrong.....6 million in dead money is looked at as a pretty big deal when you have to cut players because of a bad contract
This is basically 6 million in dead money
No... its 6 million for a starting QB that won't be a trainwreck and is a well known good locker room guy. Dead money would be a player providing absolutely nothing to the team.
McCown is 38 with a history of concussions. It's very unlikely that he can play more than a handful of games anyway.
He'll play like 5 or 6 games max because of injuries first of all....concussions, old, and made of glass
He absolutely will be a trainwreck....why pay up for a trainwreck is my point
He's a good locker room guy...congrats man. Could have taken literally any vet good guy QB off the couch for the vet minimum and got the same results
It isn't the biggest deal in the world but it's a complete waste for no good reason
Who out there were we saving our cap space for? Pretty much every market has dried up. The only players left to be had aren't going to break the bank and we have plenty of money to fill out the roster with those kind of guys.
You can roll over cap space or use the money to extend some of our younger guys
There is no excuse to throw away atleast $4 million for this trash
I'd be pretty pissed if I paid $6million for a guy that is likely not going to be able to make through the preseason.
This is all about McCagnan trying to save face and avoid having to play Hackenbust.
Can some of you give it a freaking rest. What part are you guys struggling with? We needed insurance for the kids.
Period end of story. All the other options were for a starter no matter what. Which was exactly what we did not need. We needed a mentor first, and an emergency starter last. We paid 15M for a disaster last year. I'm looking at at it as a 50% savings for the perfect role. This is the first indication that they believe in Hack and or Petty.
McCown is there if the two kids fall hard. Even if we draft another QB it would be stupid throwing him to the wolfs.
Let's move on and build a supporting cast for the kids. Say good bye to the QB drama.
I'm not against bringing Mccown in, I totally get it, but 6 million was way more than I expected.
We are going to have almost $70 mil in cap space next year and that's if we retain Decker, Skrine, Gilchrist (no chance). What young guys are we extending? Mauldin and Leonard Williams will be the only guys up for a new deal and I think we'll find the money somewhere in that near $70 mil we have.
Mcclown will be opening day starter. He's not being brought in to be a backup. As long as he's healthy he "gives us the best chance to win"
Christian Hackenberg doesn't go from 4th team reps to presumed starter.
I said it before this is just about the new OC Morton wanting to run his "system" so he can have a year of tape on his resume after the year when the staff is looking for work
The part I'm struggling with is throwing away $4 million atleast for no good reason
Hey Josh McClown come aboard for the vet minimum and be our mentor/insurance policy or take a hike....I would have been fine with that
Enunwa comes to mind....Any way you slice it it's a waste of money to me
I understand you just don't care but some of us do.....just call it what it is and we can agree to disagree
So basically he's only getting 6 million.
The bottom line is McCown's contract is damn near irrelevant all things considered. We could have rolled over the money, sure. But we aren't going to and we'll still have more money to spend than 75% of the league. Not to mention, we are STILL going to be able to roll over some money unless we make an unforeseen trade. You're bickering over what amounts to be pennies in the grand scheme of things, as absurd as that may sound.
It's just bad business, and in a tight salary cap everything matters.....Maybe not right this second, but maybe next offseason we are in a bidding war for 2 top free agents and that extra 4 mill could have come in handy
I was saying the same thing last year when we blew 12 million on Fitz so I guess we're making progress in blowing money on scrub QBs
Look man, it isn't a huge deal I'll agree with that but I'll continue to call out/disagree with things I don't like. I also give credit where credit is due
Just a stopgap quarterback, it seems like the Jets are going all in for a quarterback in next years draft.
If they win a couple games, and get a bad draft #, I feel they will trade a big haul to move up.
