I'd say we'll have a better idea after the draft, if not season.


Franchise tag fits with Raji in my opinion.

One of our guys has the same agent and just hit me with a text saying Clay pulled $10,000 for sporting that muscle milk hat when he signed that paper........ Laughing

Only in America!

6 Years - 70 M

2013 salary = 28m

70-28=42

So after the first year (2013) he's got a 5 year 42 million dollar deal. 8.4m a year... Very Happy

Yeah, I did not care about the amount half as much as I cared about how it was structured. That's a very cap friendly deal long term.

I always wondered why Muscle Milk was such a rip off. Apparently its their advertising bill.

Strokes to TT as well for securing the long term health of the franchise this off-season as well. Might have been a frustrating road for fans but very wisely done IMO.

Most underrated aspect of this organization. Our front office negotiators, specifically Russ Ball, are the best at what they do. Beautiful job.

Pretty excited this is done. Can't complain when you get our best defensive player under contract for under $12M over the next six years. Can't wait for Rodgers now.

This times infinity. I heart me some Russ Ball.


Now let's just hope Clay doesn't tweek a hammy carrying those sacks of money to the bank.

The hat is placed backwards and gently set on his head. Obvious paid endorsement is obvious.

Most excited to see the year to year contract numbers.

What kind of player do you guys see Clay being after this contract is up? I love Clay as much as the next guy, but I am kind of glad we didn't string this thing out too long.
