If it is a 2yr extension with $20m signing bonus(might just be guaranteed not SB?)

 

2019 Cap Hit: $8.7m

2020 Cap Hit: $12.1m

2021 Cap Hit: $12.2m

 

Something like that. Still think it's goong to be new deal.

 

2019: $15m(guaranteed)

2020: $15m($5m guaranteed)

Never said there wasn't. However, most would agree that most football fans in Indiana were fans of either the Bears, or the Bengals. When I was growing up, most local radio stations covered the bears. Even Q95 was mostly Bears. It was not until Harbaugh and that ridiculous run happened that more people in the state realized that we actually had our own football team. 

Remember the Mayflower 

    People root for what they grew up With

This was a dumb move. We should be tanking for Tua. 

You can but it appears the team is not

Not for me. This deal tells me that people smarter than me re: football are putting their faith in Brissett. I am intrigued and excited by CK, but I'm happy Brissett is at the helmet for now.

Once again Ballard backs his talk with his walk. Brissett has done everything asked of him. He is now in the position to lead his team in 2019-20. The QB room needs a vet to share views with the starter. Hoyer fills that role. Jacoby gets paid for coming in hot to cover in a dire situation, taking a pounding, being a leader, and not flinching. He is a good QB with room to improve.

 

Well done for all involved. 

 

For those stating he is easily replaceable....I disagree.

This makes no sense what so ever.

 

This was my first, initial reaction, not knowing the details. But...

 

But 2 years extension for $30M? That's practically 3 years for $32M. That's a good veteran backup money. If Ballard wanted to retain Brissett (behind Luck) next year, he'd have to pay similar money.

 

Brissett will start for one year, for a backup money. Then he'll either be an extremely cheap starter (if he proves himself), or he'll be one of the better veteran backups - for the right price.

 

This makes perfect sense in my opinion.

Guys, our roster is too good to tank.  If the Jags can get deep in the playoffs with Blake Bortle, don’t you think our defense, offensive line and new receivers can win with a better QB than Bortles?

The Ravens won a SB with Trent Dilfer

No,   it includes this year.    He is under contract through the 2020 season.    So 15 mill per the next two seasons.

Good on ballard for taking the initiative to give his possible franchise quarterback a pay raise when he really didn’t need to and showing FA's that you do your job and end up in the position to take over, you are part of the locker room/family and will be taken care of in a prudent manner. 

This is how I see this idea.....

... and a historically good defense.

 

So we only need Eberflus to put together a historically good defense in his 2nd season as a DC, from a bunch of 25 yrs old youngsters, and we'll be fine. Piece of cake. :D
