the chargers could go after brady, sounds like a good move for them if the patriots dont bring him back

Why would they cut ties with Rivers and being in a guy five years older.

brady is playing better despite being older

 

they might take a rookie and sit them while brady plays now.  chargers will have the some problem we do if they draft a project like love, hes not ready yet

This probably makes it clear now that the chargers will draft a QB. Will it be Herbert. Will they try and move up a couple spots for TUA. Or maybe they fall in love with Love.

Whilst Rivers leaving increases the chances of drafting a QB more likely, it may not necessarily mean they draft one early.

 

They very well could draft someone later in the draft (like Gordon or Hurts etc) and have them sit behind a vet (as the article below says someone like Cam Newton or Marcus Mariota) and draft O-line/Corner early

"the word is that the Chargers would prefer someone with experience like Newton or Marcus Mariota, rather than drafting and developing a rookie quarterback. In fact, Pauline noted in his recent mock draft that the Chargers would likely prefer a highly rated offensive tackle or cornerback if one fell to them rather than a quarterback. Acquiring Newton could free up some options for them to do just that."

Makes sense for the Chargers to grab a short term vet such as Cam Newton.  They badly underachieved this year, and Rivers was a shadow of himself by the end of the season. But they need a QB of the future, and I'm betting they grab one early in the first. With Burrows and Tua gone by their pick, Herbert seems the odds on favorite to be their guy.

They have Tyrod Taylor who has had success that can play a year.

Actually, statically over the last half of the season, Brady and Rivers have similar numbers

Yeah I agree, their roster to me isn't too bad, they just need to get their O-line in check. Looking at the types of QB their GM has drafted though, he's taken Brad Sorenson and Easton Stick in the draft and then traded for Tyrod. 

 

To me (I very well could be wrong) they may lean towards a type like an Anthony Gordon or Jalen Hurts if Burrow and Tua are gone as oppose to a Justin Herbert, Jordan Love or even Jacob Eason

This leaves 3 options to me.  

 

He plans to retire

 

He plans to play for a Florida team

 

He plans to live out of an apartment and play another year with another team

It has less to do with him possibly playing in Florida, which I doubt he does, and more to do with no state income tax. He can basically play wherever and not be hit with the tax burden.

At this stage in his career and with all of the money he has made I highly doubt he's worried about paying state income tax for his last few years.  This is about him being closer to his family.

You're thinking way too simple... It does matter with how much he's made and how he has it invested, especially when he retires. Being in a state with no state income tax, and how he redistributes his money,  both are mutually exclusive and majorly beneficial.

 

I'd be pretty much shocked if he plays in Florida. He doesn't really fit Arians system at his age. Jax can't afford him and I believe Miami rides with Fitzmagic and probably someone from the draft this year, probably Tua.

 

Carolina would be a good fit if they dump Cam.

The tax burden means zero if you're not playing for a Florida team.    You have to pay taxes to the state in which you play the games.

Maybe being in a state with no income tax might be beneficial after he retires when he can redo all of his estate planning.  As long as he's playing it's inconsequential.  You pay taxes in the state you earn the money.  If he plays for a Florida team for his last years in the league it would result in savings but that is not the reason he is moving there. He is moving there to be closer to his family.

The non-residential tax would be it. It's significantly less and also can be credited, a portion, from the resident state. A heckuva lot better than California.

Pretty much, except players for a team in a state income tax collection, must also pay their home state income tax earned while playing in states that do not have state income tax.  Players for no income tax states pay no taxes on 1/2 their (home) games, nor endorsements. They then pay non-resident income tax to states their team plays road games.

 I have heard they were typically less, but not for every state (from what I was told).

 

There is supposedly a new law that will affect taxed players too, because individuals can no longer deduct more than $10,000 for state and local taxes (SALT) or declare miscellaneous itemized deductions for work-related expenses and investment fees on Federal returns. And these tax law changes, especially the latter, will cost pro athletes more than most people.

 

Can you imagine California? 37% Federal and 13% state? that's 1/2 your salary right there!!

One of the wisest questions I have seen on here ever!  I totally agree.  Why would you think an older Brady would be any better behind a bad o-line?

Just because there is no state income tax does not mean it is cheaper to live there.  The property taxes alone more than make up for no state income taxes. 

Heck, just the sales tax in Tampa is 8.5%

And wants to keep playing football. Rumor is that Tampa may be interested and that Winston may be up for grabs. I know he can be a turn over machine, but I would love to see the shoe on his helmet.

I'm not sure, but I would be surprised if the property taxes are higher in Florida vs. California overall.  The sales tax in California starts at 7.5% and can go up to 8.5% depending on where you live/shop.  Therefore, that 13.3% extra Rivers pays in California adds up to a large amount, imo and, as was mentioned by @ColtsBlueFL, he is no longer allowed to deduct state and local taxes over 10k from his federal returns, compounding the effect.

 

I believe that his prime motivation was to move closer to his family, but the hundreds of thousands of dollars he will save by making the move is probably a nice added plus.

No interest in Winston.  Winston is even more flawed than Brissett, who at least minimizes turnovers

 

Save your coaching points for getting Brissett to be a bit less risk averse.  I'm guessing it's going to be easier to get a cautious QB like Brissett to open up more, than it is for a guy like Winston to stop throwing 50 50 balls

    • No idea you are a woman, always thought you were a guy. Learned something today on the forum!
    • so the only Colt impacted is Nelson?   So do I have this right - now teams could release a 5th year option player after year 4 and not be on the hook for the contract unless he got hurt in in that 4th year?   If that is right, seems a minimal impact rule to me.  
    • Using Mahomes as an example is kinda an exercise in futility.  Of course you trade multiple picks for the best QB in the game.  I would give up 3 first round and two 2nds for Mahomes and a third any day of the week. That trade is the exception and not the rule.  The real expectation level should be set at what should we do for a QB like Matt Ryan, D Watson or Matt Stafford.  All three are good solid QBs but not in the conversation as the best.  This is most likely the ceiling of whatever QB we would get.  You can build teams around them and compete in the playoffs but if you miss on other parts of the roster it can make you miss the playoffs.     I would not trade more than two first round picks to move up for a QB of this caliber.  They aren’t good enough to overcome multiple deficiencies on a team.  They are good enough to take an average team and put them in the playoffs tho.  Combine that with a good coaching staff and you have a shot at making a run in the playoffs.  This team has upcoming needs at premium positions: Tackle, DE and corner and we need the draft picks to get replacements to start grooming. Kinda in no mans land right now so something will have to be sacrificed unless we get lucky.  This decision will make or break Ballards career and I’m sure he knows this.  I appreciate his willingness to be patient and search for the right guy.  I hope it pays off and he finds him.  
    • Seriously - who is going to be giving up a 2nd round pick for “an injured tight end on a big contract?”   I mean if he is out 6-8 weeks as suggested, what good would he do a team this year anyway?  And would he not be able to pass the physical until after the trade deadline has passed?   To me the answer to all these questions lie in Philly as in that is where he finishes the season. 
    • I see some talent but nothing that truly blows my dress up.  Nothing that says go ahead and pay the ransoms it will take to get him.    This is really a ridiculous thread anyway - the Giants will not be giving up on Jones just two years in unless they are in position to draft Lawrence or Fields. That won’t happen because they are in the NFC East and will stumble into enough wins to take away that possibility.
