Winston has more completions to saints player than Hill does already.
The images were disturbing. Glad he's doing much better.
He's clearly a guy that doesn't learn his lesson. The fact that he was close to amputation and had so many surgeries makes me wonder why he'd ever want to return to football. Other than in some sort of non-playing role.
If i had 3 years left at millions of dollars i would be "attempting a comeback" too rather than retiring.
If I made over a 100mil I rather be able to walk than risk being in a wheelchair the rest of my life.
One part of me likes this, another part of me would like to see no refund so that scalping companies take a big hit and maybe dissolve.
The worst thing about the PI challenges in the CFL was it gave the officials 2 chances to get the play wrong instead of just one.
I wouldn't trust these officials to do div 3 highschool games.
I'm a Redskins fan so have watched this situation pretty closely.
The team has moved on. If he does make a miraculous comeback so be it. I doubt he will do so for practical reasons. The insurance on his contract likely covers the majority of any lost income.
The closest I have been able to determine is Smith has far less than $100 million remaining to be paid. The four year contract he signed before the 2018 season was for $94 million with a $40 million signing bonus.
He has two years left on a four year deal that had $54 million in salary throughout the term of the contract. So a good guess is there is $27 million left on his contract. Don't get me wrong. $27 million is still a huge amount of money. It's still no where close to $100 million.
Even though the tweet has CFL in the title, it is actually the NFL PI they are mentioning.
He has 35m in salary over these 2 years.
16m this year, 19m next year.
His career earnings so far is 173,725,000.
If I was him I would walk away from the remaining money that isnt covered by insurance, it looks like 2020 is guaranteed cause of injury, but unsure about 2021, so he would potentially be walking away from 19m. With an earning of roughly 190m after this year.
I think I would rather keep my leg and walk over 19m if I had made 190m up to that point in my career.
Source? I literally can't find it anywhere. fwiw my numbers come from the links in his Wikipedia page.
Colts got Rivers. Big things are coming my way.
The excitement of the Raiders first season in Las Vegas might outweigh virus fears.
Just looked at the Patriots schedule.
Yeah, they aren't going to win alot of games. Maybe 8-8 at best.
I think 8-8 is a worst case scenario. Bill Belichick is still a helluva coach. The Pats went 11-5 with Matt Cassel.
3-3 in division games is the low end for the Pats. Swept by the Bills and 3-1 against the Jets and Dolphins.
2-2 against the AFC West is worst case. Loss against KC. Beat a bad Chargers team. Denver and Vegas are both bad so 1-1 is the worst case against those two.
1-1 in the other AFC games. Lose to Baltimore and beat Houston.
2-2 against the NFC West. Lose to Garoppolo and the 49ers, while beating the Cardinals are easy guesses. Rams should be a win. Seattle will decline but the Patriots lose that game in a worst case scenario.
Separate names with a comma.
