Someone is going to pay him.

Please come to Green Bay.. Lord knows we need the help

Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that despite all the wholesale changes going on with the Giants, this upcoming season will be a tire fire?

Marcus Aurelius: Someone is going to pay him.


At 32? I think the big payday days are behind him. Probably one year deals from here on out.

The Bears need to start spending some cash. They'll have like $80M in cap space when they release Glennon. They're letting Amukamara hit free agency which leaves them with Fuller who they transition tagged. If he gets a good offer I don't see the Bears matching it. I'm not sure I think they should either.

Other athletes have taken pay cuts without a fuss.

He can retire.  Unlike his cousin Antonio, he doesn't have 14 mouths to feed.

Maybe this will start a trend for teams having underperforming veterans demanding salary increases.

Unlikely anyone ever took a pay cut without a fuss. Some may have been forced to accept it, but they assuredly fuss at first.

/"athletes are overpaid" = "I have no understanding of economics", really hot take dude, Rome will love that

If you think that someone who catches a leather ball produces millions of dollars of product to an economy, you're the one who has no understanding of economics. How's that for a hot take?

It would vary by individual contributor for sure. But given the roughly 1800 NFL players and PS players and the league's 14 billion in revenue, each player would seem to produce roughly 7,777,777 dollars. So yes, They would seem to produce million of dollars a year in the economy.

The world needs food workers.
The world wants to watch athletes.

People have disposable income. They choose to watch athletes.

Food workers don't bring large crowds to a stadium where people spend hundreds of dollars on tickets, food, parking, etc. Because of these athletes, stadiums are built, workers are employed, staff is employed for the team, planes and buses are chartered, contracts are negotiated for tv stations that employ more workers.  Supply companies are needed to supply food, beverages, and various other sundries who employ more workers. Memorabilia is made and sold.
So yeah, these players are paid a lot of money so an owner can field a good team and keep the local economy going.
Also, anyone can work in the food service industry. You or I can do it.  And machines are replacing food service workers anyway. Not everyone can be a professional athlete, and athletes are only paid what a billionaire owener thinks their worth. Food service workers certainly deserve a living wage, but let's not pretend this is some specialized service.

AquaTatanka: He can retire.  Unlike his cousin Antonio, he doesn't have 14 mouths to feed.


You'd think by now, teams would start offering vasectomies as part of the signing bonus.

What's worse is that Antonio Cromartie *did* get a vasectomy.

I hope each of his kids has 14 kids and they all become NFL-caliber DBs and WRs, so the entire league is Cromartie vs Cromartie.

And then any daughters get with some dudes that will produce NFL-caliber linemen so that in a couple generations it's the National Cromartie League.

I'm convinced his secret plan is to have a ton of kids, then his kids have a ton of kids, so in 2 generations there will enough Cromarties to own, manage, coach, and play for an entire NFL team.

I was going to say that. I hope the girls also breed with some NFL linemen producers so they can have their own team.

And that Antonio gets to be HC and the league decides to allow him to have his own team and they'll pay for it, but they get all the profits, too. And then they get to be a 33rd team as long as there are enough of them to be a competitive team with no one on the team that is not descended from Antonio.

Lost in all this is the fact that he's got an Achilles tendon problem.  Yes, he was asked to take a pay cut, but he was also asked to move from corner to safety.

And he gets to have his own expansion team in Texas: the San Antonio Cromarties.
